Enjoy the rich food culture of the Indian community at MakanMakan Deepavali on Nov 21.


Vadei, banana leaf rice, lassi drinks, poori, papomdum… these are some of the common Indian foods that we usually eat. However, not many people have the opportunity to know more about these foods or Indian culture if they do not have Indian relatives or friends.

To provide this opportunity for those who are interested to know more about Indian food and their culture, Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak (YPS) and Sarawak Development Institute (SDI) together with the Champions are organising an event called MakanMakan Deepavali in conjunction with the Deepavali celebration on 21 November 2015 at the Indian Association Kuching Hall, Jalan Rock from 7pm to 9.30 pm.

MakanMakan is a cultural dinner experience aimed at learning and sharing the diverse food culture, practices and traditions of the many ethnic groups within Malaysia. This is the first of four annual MakanMakan to be held in conjunction with the four major cultural festivals in Malaysia – Chinese New Year, Hari Gawai, Hari Raya AidilFitri and Deepavali.

YPS and its partners seek to provide a communal platform which invites all Malaysians and non-Malaysians to learn and understand more about one another’s food culture while promoting stronger cross-cultural understanding and acceptance.

Each MakanMakan will feature the traditional and authentic cuisine, as well as, introductions to ethnic food practices and traditions of the ethnic groups to educate our community about the rich heritage and culture of each ethnic community, in turn, directly contributing to the preservation of Malaysian culinary practices and traditions.

The collaborative-partners on the project are the Indian Association of Kuching (IAK) and AIESEC UNIMAS.

Tickets are priced at RM20 per person and RM30 per pair. Those who are interested to attend are encouraged to wear traditional Indian attire or smart casual attire. To grab the tickets please call Julian at +6016-8462688 (Champions HOTLINE) or email [email protected] or contact SDI’s office at 082-415484/416484.
