This week is the first week of Ramadhan and with that, comes our annual event; Majlis Berbuka Puasa Yayasan Kepimpinan Perdana. The ceremony is a celebration for the month of Ramadhan. This year’s ceremony was held on the 31st May 2017 here at the Perdana Leadership Foundation, with more than 200 guests attended.
Guests arrived as early as 5 pm, eager to meet and dine with our Honorary President, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah. Other notable guests included our Chairman, Tan Sri Azman Hashim; our Trustee, Dato’ Mohaiyani Mohamad; former Cabinet Minister, Tun Ling Liong Sik; former Tradewinds Chairman, Tan Sri Dato’ Wira Syed Abdul Jabbar Shahabudin; MMU President, Prof Datuk Dr Ahmad Rafi Mohamed Eshaq; Perdana Global Peace Foundation Trustee, Tan Sri Shamsudin Hitam, and many others.
Guests were served some kuih as light refreshments to break their fast before proceeding to perform the Maghrib prayers. The main meal took place after Maghrib. The dishes included biryani rice, biryani beef, fried chicken, pajeri nanas and much more. During the Iftaar, many guests took the opportunity to take photos with our Honorary President and Tun Dr Siti. There were indeed many selfies and wefies during that time!
The Muslim guests prayed Terawih with Tun, and the event finished off with moreh (supper) and more conversation. It was indeed a night to renew old friendships, and strike up new ones. Here’s to a blessed Ramadhan for all.
