Youths celebrate Hari Raya with kampong music, dance and satays!

4 October 2009

The smell of barbecuing satays, oil torches tied to the pillars, palm tree leaves combined with the traditional kampong music and dance perfomances threw everyone back to the kampong times.

Beside the backdrop that read "Sinar Lebaran di Perkampungan", members of the Eunos CC Youth Executive Committee were all in their kebayas and baju kurongs (Malay traditional costumes).

As the two lovely lady emcees declared the dinner to commence, YEC members began to serve the tasty kueh-kuehs to the tables.

We were at a Hari Raya celebration jointly organised by the YEC and Eunos Zone '2' Residents' Committee. The event was sponsored by Chuen Cheong Food Industries (Pte) Ltd.

The Guest-of-Honour was our Adviser, Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed, Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs & Member of Parliament for Aljunied GRC.

For the past few months, the organising committee led by Noor Abdillah, Assistant Treasurer of Eunos CC YEC, worked hard to prepare for the event.

It was an entertaining night where our Malay cultural group, Ayunda Lestari, and various artistes performed traditional Malay dances and songs.
