ICC Malaysian Festival -The essence of Asia & a fascinating multiethnic country - 

Date & Time: Dec. 11th, 2013 (Wed), 4:30-6:30pm
(doors open at 4:10pm)

Eligibility: Waseda students, faculty, staff, and the general public
Registration: Not required (partial participation ok)
Fee: Free!

Malays, Chinese, Indians and numerous tribes call multiethnic
Malaysia their home.

In the mornings it's not an alarm clock that wakes the locals,
but the Azan, or Islamic call to prayer from the nearest mosque.
If you're feeling a little peckish then you can try some "Roti canai"
(a type of Indian snack) in one of the many cafes. Then at Chinese
New Year there's plenty of traditional Chinese firecrackers and
beautiful fireworks!

"We're all different, but that's ok" is the way of thinking of
most Malaysians. Everyone should be proud of their roots, but
it is the superb fusion of cultures that allows Malaysians to
coexist so peacefully. This is one of the most charming and unique
aspects of Malaysian culture.

In this event, prepare to be blown away by talks about Malaysia's
rich and diverse food and culture and hear all about the "Peranakan"
(the descendants of Chinese merchants who married local Malays).
See how a "kebaya" (traditional dress) is actually made and learn
lots about this wonderful country! Don't miss this chance to
experience the charming and fascinating Malaysia!

Not required (partial participation ok)
(First 80 participants will get a seat/
when all seats have been filled, participants may also stand)
