Eid-Mubarak Malaysian-style at Consul-General’s Residence

After a month-long fasting in the month of Ramadan, Muslims all over the world celebrate a thanksgiving in the month of Syawal. Eid-Mubarak means “Blessed Celebration”. It has been an annual tradition of the Malaysian Club Deutschland (MCD) to host the Malaysian-style Eid-Mubarak celebration with our Malaysian-German members and their families and guests. This year, both the consul-general of Malaysia in Frankfurt and MCD jointly hosted the event at the Consul-General’s official residence in Sachenhausen on 28th July.

The joint event kicked off in the afternoon with the official celebration with guests of our host Consul-General Adina Kamaruddin and her spouse Mahzan Abdul Samad. Her guests include fellow consul-generals from Pakistan Nadeem Ahmad, Turkmenistan’s Orazmukhamet Annabayez, deputy CEO of KT Bank Ahmet Kudsi Arslan, German tourism agency Wolfgang Meschonat. The guests were entertained with live demonstration of grilling chicken satay, our famous Spiess (skewer), making roti canai and ABC (ais batu campur), a mixture of syrup and sweet condiments on shaved ice. The guests were extremely delighted with our Malaysian way of celebrating one of the important festivals in the Islamic calender. The event is also a showcase of the diversity and inclusiveness of our Malaysian culture wherever we are – in and outside of our home country, according to Adina, who is also MCD’s patron.

The informal celebration begins in the evening for MCD members and their family members, Malaysian students as well as consular staff. This year, the event is “by-invitation only” to club members as part of the Club’s appreciation to our members for their continuing support. The resounding success of past club events such as MCD Ball in 2015 and the recent Parade der Kulturen in 2016 owed greatly to selfless contribution of time and efforts of many members within and without of Frankfurt. Such was the spirit of camaraderie (muhibbah) and gotong-royong that has made the club a successful and still around for the past 19 years. In fact, many of these members were behind the scene in preparing the food for our official guests and members in the past 3 days, under the leadership of club patron Adina Kamaruddin and president Rosita Heilek.

Like the saying goes, “the way to a (man’s) person’s heart is through his stomach”; and we Malaysians sure know how to hit the right chord. Our traditional delicacies such as satay ayam, nasi empit, beef rendang, roti canai,, mee goreng and various types of Raya kueh definitely made it to the stomach and heart of consul-general’s official guests and our members. No one would deny the signature dish of our consular-general – lamb curry – was the best and none left till the end.

Some of Malaysia’s heart-warmers. No one would deny themselves a second or third helping.

Such events not only bring our members closer together but also members whom we have not seen for many years returning. In fact, we recruited a handful of new members and brought back old ones. We hope that through such events and more publicity given, we can bring all Malaysian diaspora together.

Every 2 years, members and friends of Malaysian Club Deutschland (MCD) dish out the best of Malaysian specialties at Frankfurt’s Parade der Kulturen (Parada of Cultures). The Parade is a one-day event, open to overseas clubs and societies registered in Frankfurt as part of the city’s aim to promote its potpourri of international residents. Over 100 clubs serve their respective local delicacies and handicrafts.

MCD members have been planning for more than one month what Malaysian delicacies that we would serve. Many names popped out – nasi kandar, char koay teow, mee mamak, pasembor …. but in the end, these won the day and the heart of our visitors – chicken satay with real peanut sauce (not peanut butter sauce), roti canai with dhal or curry chicken, murtabak (oh yea!), taufu sumbat (makan sampai lompat), our Perak specialties – rendang tok (beef rendang) and pineapple pajeri, curry puff, pisang goreng (banana fritter) and our world famous teh tarik, sirup limau (lime syrup) and fast- and best-selling ais batu campur (ABC).

Despite heavy shower at the start of the event, it did not stop the crowd from coming to our stall. The smell of our satay truly attracts many visitors who are curious of this specialty. In fact, these were selling like hot cakes.

No chinese new year is ever complete without “yee sang” – a must-have for luck and prosperity. Iris Schneider and her talent team of chefs – Irene and Alison – have prepared the “yee sang”. Our guests commented on the authenticity of this dish, which reminded us of home.

MCD “Crowns” Dato Chef Ismail at Malaysia Ball 2015

Like a high school prom, one would expect the most popular couple to be crowned the “king” and “queen” of the prom night. For the Malaysian Club Deutschland (MCD), the Malaysia Ball 2015 held on 17th October was not only its largest event ever organised but the first with a strong partnership with the Consulate-General of Malaysia in Frankfurt, Tourism Malaysia Frankfurt, Johor State Government, Yayasan Warisan Johor (Johor Heritage Foundation) and Johor Tourism Board.

In addition, this event was also an appreciation to the “Star of the Night” – Dato Chef Ismail Ahmad, MCD’s “Ambassador to Malaysia” – who has tirelessly for the last 8 years cooked and entertained our members, friends and guests. The close relationship between Dato Chef Ismail and MCD was further strengthened when the club president Rosita Rahman-Heilek “crowned” Dato Chef Ismail the official MCD Chef that night in front of the Malaysian Ambassador to Germany Dato Zulkifli Adnan, Deputy Speaker Johor Legislative Assembly Dato’ Haji Baderi Dasuki, Consular-General of Malaysia in Frankfurt Dr. Adina Kamaruddin and other distinguished guests.

Mission accomplished!!! MCD’s contribution this year, once again for Vivekananda Home in Rembau. Was very much needed to help this home purchase more mattresses, etc as they have taken in more children. Mr Ramesh Patel and his wife, who run the home were very grateful for the help. Our Dato’ Chef Ismail and former CG in Frankfurt, Dr Adina Kamarudin were also there to present the donation collected during our last Gala 2017. We thank all our members and guests who supported this cause by purchasing Lucky Draw tickets. Every little bit helps. Thank you, Chef, thank you Mdm for your time and effort. After our visit to the home, we made a quick visit to Chef’s house in the village of Chengkau Ulu. ... See MoreSee Less
