Annually, MASCA Victoria (Malaysian Students’ Council of Australia) would conduct an event particularly to convoke Malaysians in Melbourne and around the vicinity with food stalls manned by small and known businesses and also traditional, ancestral games and performances that would array our proud aboriginal cultural behaviour to the community. This celebration is called Fiesta Malaysia 2013, held at the famous Federation Square.
Two weeks before 16th of March 2013, our committee members, Ahmad Amir Fikri and Zafirah Najmuddin volunteered themselves to plan and execute the arrangement selling authentic Malaysian cuisine such as Nasi Lemak with Ayam Berempah, Beef Rendang, Cucur Udang, Onde-Onde and Ribena Lychee. There were other stalls from multiple organizations as well such as EHSAN, MASCA Victoria and RUMA though everyone was said to be under one consortium, MASCA, for safety operation concerns. This was led by Sarrah Allia Sharul Amin, the Chief Executive Officer of Fiesta Malaysia 2013.
People started gathering and lining up at our stall named KUAMakan, at around 11.30am, appetized by the smell and look of the palatable dishes displayed under the Bain Marie. Our president, Syahir Zaini, advisor, Alia Zaba and other KUAM members, Abdul Aziz, Majid Nazli, Amir Izzuwan, Wan Abdul Kamaruddin, Rizal Shamsudin, Aiman Haziq and Wan Nur Syaira ended up participating, giving a helping hand along the whole operation. The sales went well, exceeding expectations, an ace denouement for the hard work given by everyone, Alhamdulillah.
