DIWALI LUNCHEON WITH MALAYSIAN DIASPORA PARIS, FRANCE – 6 NOVEMBER 2016
In conjunction with Diwali celebration, the Embassy of Malaysia in Paris proudly co-sponsored the annual Diwali Luncheon with Malaysian Association in France (MAF) at restaurant “Welcome India” in Paris on 6 November 2016.
The luncheon was attended by 50 MAF members including family and friends. All guests enjoyed a delicious spread of authentic Indian cuisine with MAF contributing some Malaysian desserts including home-baked banana cake, honey cake, lotus paste buns and loh mai chi. A Best Costumes contest was organized and three winners received token gifts. The highlight of the Diwali lunch was the performance by our saxophonist, Syazwan bin Azree and guitarist Sim Jun Win, serenading guests with all-time favourite tunes such as My Way and Titanic theme song.
Indeed, the Diwali Luncheon 2016 was a great success and a memorable event. All guests returned home with a big smile on their face and happy tummy. The cheerful and warm atmosphere at the event manifested the close camaraderie between the embassy and Malaysian diaspora in Paris.
Looking forward to the annual Xmas gathering on 4 December 2016!
