Date: Monday 15th August, 2016
Venue: Hilton Kuching Hotel
The Welcome Reception will be a trip down memory lane when Malaysia was a British Colony. Themed ‘Colonial’ the setting truly depicts an era gone by but still remains a part of us. The ambience, music, colour, food (both local and western) and not forgetting the panaromic view of the city of Kuching, will provide an ideal environment for all to have lots of fun and a memorable evening.
As to cherish the amazing nature we have here, the Gala Dinner would be themed ‘Borneo Tropical Rainforest’ where delegates will expect to feel the ambience of the natural tropical rainforest of Sarawak. With light quite dimly lit, the sound of nature will fill the dining hall imitating the atmosphere of the rainforest. Imagine walking along the real forest floor, the view is dark and cool as the canopy above would block direct sunlight to the ground. Sounds of the birds, insects and river streams will truly captivate your senses which make you feel one with nature. Delegates are also expected to try some of the exquisite local delicacies where it may tickle your taste buds; whether you like it or not, surely it will be an amazing experience.
In addition to welcome delegates from all around the world, there will be a non-stop entertainment including traditional dances and sound of the ethnic music. Looking at various traditional costumes of each ethnic group such as the Sirat (Loin Cloth), sarong, vest and straw headband, creates the authenticity and uniqueness to experience the ambience of multiple races available in Sarawak. With more than 40 sub-ethnic groups, each of them has different cultures, lifestyles and languages.
Be prepared to have a wonderful evening, wild yet calm and soothing, just like our astounding Borneo Tropical Rainforest.
