The April 1st Coffee Morning event of the International Women’s Club of Belgrade was a joint venture with the Malaysian embassy and PERWAKILAN (Ladies’ Association of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Malaysia) Belgrade and hosted generously by Hilton Hotel Belgrade. A number of special guests from the diplomatic and business sectors as well as IWC members were in attendance.
The highlight of the event was a cultural presentation by the Malaysian embassy: traditional dance performances by Chenderawasih dance troupe and a fashion display of hand-painted batik silk kaftans. The guests were offered some Malaysian delicacies as well as Hilton’s exemplary hospitality as refreshments after the show.
After the addresses by Mr. Khairul Tazril Tarmizi, Chargé d’Affaires of the Embassy of Malaysia and Mrs. Sonia Shehryar, the spouse of the Pakistani ambassador and president of the IWC, members as well as special guests were presented with goodie bags filled with Malaysian batik cushion covers, Malaysian spices and discount vouchers and participated in the IWC Lucky Draw which included giveaways provided by generous partners and collaborators of the IWC.
The PERWAKILAN Belgrade provided all guests with a chance to purchase several Malaysian items and delicacies after the show, with 10 to 20 percent of the proceeds donated to the International Women’s Club Charity Fund.
