Dinner at Malaysia House

On our last night in Berlin, the Malaysian Embassy invited us for dinner, hosted by Datuk Zakaria Sulong, the Ambassador, and his wife, Datin Hazizah Ahmad at Rumah Malaysia.

Rumah Malaysia is really gorgeous, both interior and exterior and the Ambassador and his wife are really hospitable people. Albeit their status and the grandness of their place, they were humble and everything was casual. Datin brought out boxes of sweets and cookies, apparently brought over by the Yang di-Pertuan Agung himself, for us.

We had a dinner of rice, sambal udang, mutton curry, fish curry, dhal, tauhu sumbat, and stir-fried cabbage. For many of us, this was heavenly as we haven't had rice for almost a week! Even if we did have rice, it wasn't like this and it definitely didn't have all the familiar dishes.

SIFE UMS would like to thank Datuk Zakaria Sulong, Datin Hazizah Ahmad, and En. Muzafar Shah Mustafa (the Deputy Head of Mission who came to Tegel Airport to greet us when we arrived in Berlin on the first day) for their kind hospitality during our visit to Berlin.

Breaking chains for change.
