In the second week of Ramadhan, the Ministry of Transport organized a get together with the MOT family. The event was held at Ministry of Transport, Putrajaya on 15 May 2019.
Guests arrived as early as 6.30 pm, eager to meet YB Anthony Loke Siew Fook, our Minister of Transport. There were a lot of familiar faces including our Chairman En Muhammad Razif, General Manager of Johor Port Authority and Dato Hj Baharin, Director General of Marine Department of Malaysia. The ceremony attendees were close to 300 guests.
At around 7.00 pm, we welcome the arrival of YB Anthony Loke Siew Fook and started an opening speech. He gave a short and concise speech to welcome everyone and as a celebration of Ramadhan. Subsequently, a guest recited the Azan as an indicator for breaking fast.
The guests were treated with opening sweetener Kurma to break their fast and continued with a buffet of variety malay dishes. There was grilled lamb, TeaLive booth beverages, cakes and multiple selection of dishes as well as refreshments. Need not to say that our tummies were as happy as we were. The ceremony ended early at 8.00 p.m. as to make way for Muslim’s Maghrib prayer. In the spirit of Ramadhan, these events provide solidarity and tighten our unity as a community with a diverse racial profile.
