Celebrate CNY traditions with MakanMakan!


MakanMakan is back! This time with an opportunity for interested individuals to learn more about Chinese food and their culture. In conjunction with the Chinese Lunar New Year celebrations, Yayasan Perpaduan Sarawak (YPS) and the Sarawak Development Institute (SDI) together with The Champions are organising MakanMakan Chinese New Year on February 19 at The Banquet, 3rd Exchange Commercial Centre from 7 pm to 10 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.

Every MakanMakan features 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 Federation of Chinese Associations Sarawak, SUPERMAIN & The Banquet.

Those who are interested to attend are encouraged to wear traditional Chinese attire or smart casual attire. To grab tickets please call John-Paul at +6016-8462688 (Champions HOTLINE) or email [email protected] or contact SDI’s office at 082-415484/416484.
