The Melayu UK Hari Raya Party in Bicester, Oxfordshire on 6th November 2005 attracted more members than we anticipated. The excitement even started many days before the celebration, with volunteers from various localities busy planning and preparing for the event. The results: a really wonderful and cheerful Hari Raya party that gets better every year.
Thank you to all the volunteers, without them the party would not have been successful. The same goes to all those who came and celebrated Hari Raya.
A team of teenagers from Remaja MISG-ABIM entertained the crowd with 3 Malay nashids. Later on, all the little children had a go with a nashid performance after an impromptu practice of the nashid "Your Mother" by Rashid Bhika.
We also unveiled a surprise competition with all 3 prizes sponsored by YTL Hotels. The winners were:
1st Prize: Faridah (Liverpool) won 3 days 2 nights at Pangkor Laut Resort
2nd Prize: Ehsan (Chetwood, Buckinghamshire) won 3 days 2 nights at Tanjung Jara Resort
3rd Prize: Othman (Leamington Spa) won Marks & Spencer hamper.
Congratulations to all the winners.
