IT was a truly memorable night – one that “bridged cultures” for staff, students and invited guests who attended the International Cultural Night 2009, held at Kuala Lumpur Infrastructure University College (KLIUC) recently.
Themed “Bridging Cultures, Breaking Barriers’, the event was organised by KLIUC’s International Students’ Association, in conjunction with its international students’ festival.
The audience watched, enthralled, as students from the Maldives, Yemen, China, Sudan, Nigeria and Fiji presented cultural performances and beautifully choreographed Bhangra and Bollywood dances.
There was also a fashion show and lucky draw.
Among those present at the event were Private Higher Education Management Sector deputy director-general Dr Mohamed Rashid Navi Bax, the acting High Commissioner of the Maldives, Mohamed Zaki, and ambassadors and dignitaries from various countries.
Students from the Shepherd Foundation Centre in Semenyih, Selangor, also joined in the fun.
The highlight of the evening was a presentation of a mock cheque for RM20,000, collected by KLIUC students and staff of Protasco Bhd for the people of Gaza, Palestine.
KLIUC’s International Students’ Association president, Moeenudin Ahmed Khan, presented the cheque in the presence of its president, Prof Datuk Wira Dr Mohammad Noor Salleh.
All proceeds from ticket sales were channelled to the fund for the people of Gaza.
