The marquees are up and the stage is decorated and set. Weather - perfect.
Pasar Malam - the most anticipated night after a week long multicultural celebration, and months of hard work and dedication by the MCW committee as well as other university departments which have helped us to make this event smooth running.
We had a great line up of performers with WASAMBA, lion dancing and African drumming just to name a few and the turn out was well over what we were expecting. An estimated 15 000 people attended the event! So thank you to everyone who came along to support the event. Hope you enjoyed yourselves as well!
General comments from stall holders about Pasar Malam 2007 was that it was a very well organised event, a great variety of foods (so no clashes) as well as volunteers and committee members who were quick to respond to any problems they had.
Students said they were able to try so many varieties of different ethnic foods in one place and the best thing was being able to catch up with long time friends who they'd never expected to see at such an event with such a great atmosphere. Performances were also given a thumbs up!
Security was very pleased with the behaviour of the crowd and crowd control by the volunteers.
Overall, the night was a grand success with all parties happy with the end result!
Unfortunately, due to the lack of manpower on our side, volunteers and commitee members were very busy on the night running around trying to accomodate stall holders, control the crowd and make sure everything was running smoothly. As a result, we are very "photo-less" for the event which is sad. But at least the memories of the night's event will stay with us forever.
The MCW Committee 2007 would like to take the time to thank all of our sponsors. Thank you to Curtin University and the Curtin Student Guild, Longmont Engineering and Auspole Fabrication, Perth Education City, Utopia, Connections, STA Travel, AHM and IDP for your kind support and sponsorhip. The week long multicultural celebrations ending with Pasar Malam would not have been possible without your support
We would like to take the time to thank all the volunteers who were able to help out on the night of Pasar Malam even if it was only for a couple of hours. Your help has been much appreciated! Also, a big thanks to those volunteers who helped out during the week of multicultural festivities! We hope you've enjoyed the experience as much as we have had organising it! Hope you guys are encouraged to continue to do voluntary work around campus especially for ISC!
Stay tuned for more photo updates!
