Persatuan Warganegara Malaysia (PWM) held a Lunar New Year Gala Dinner at the Planetary Hall, International Conventional Centre (ICC) last night. The main objective of this event was to reward and recognize Malaysian students residing in Brunei Darussalam who have achieve academic excellence in their respective academic year. More than 300 students achieve the criteria set by PWM and walked away with certificates of achievement and "ang pows". The guest of honour was the Minister Counsellor at the Malaysian High Commission, Ms. Haznah Md Hashim, who was representing the High Commissioner of Malaysia. A big "Thank You" to the more than 1000 guests (this function would not have been possible without you!) for their support; taking into consideration that there were several other events going on at the same time! And I love this year's theme "Celebrating Unity, Peace & Prosperity", all thanks to our designer, Mr. Azlan Ahmad!
