"Malayia Truly Asia"

General Meeting
Wednesday 24 April2019
Vienna International Center, F-1075

"UNWG Charity Shop"
"Malaysia Truly Asia" captures and defines the essence of the country's unique diversity with a potpourri of a culture consisting of Asia's three major groups:  Malay, Chinese, Indian, plus various other ethnic groups such as the Iban, Bidayuh, Kadazan and more. Being a multicultural country, Malaysia, which is noted as a 'Food Paradise', offers a wide variety of cuisine. This coffee morning promises UNWG members will be treated to an exciting presentation of food and cultural. There will also be a presentation on Malaysia, display of traditional costumes, beading demonstrations and a traditional dance performance called “Joget Pahang”.

We have changed the program for this meeting to a presentation of the UNWG's Charity Shop.
The UNWG Charity Shop manager Alara Orbay will explain the Charity Shop's activities, the joy of discovering a special bargain and opportunity to meet new friends. It also an interesting history. For many years the program was called "White Elephant". Why? It's so valuable, so rare but also very big for most of our homes.

The illustration above is an image created by Ulli Modro, a talented IAEA retiree who has illustrated several children's books. This one is from "Biju the Baby Elephant", written by Susan Cohen, another IAEA retiree. It has been published in Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian and Portuguese translation.
