Our main focus is to help both the Malaysian students and families currently residing in Belfast to achieve maximum comfort living abroad. Since we have rather small community here in Belfast, all of our members share a strong bond with each other, strong enough to consider ourselves as one huge family. We organise quite a number of activities throughout the year to help each other overcome any homesick feelings that would naturally occur for students studying abroad.
Some of our main events, which are held annually, include Eidul Fitri and Eidul Adha Celebration for the Muslim community. We also held an annual Family Day event, which targets to bridge the gap between Malaysian students and families who are currently working and residing in Belfast. One of our aims is to focus and emphasise on the religious aspects for the Malay community in Belfast. Hence, we often organise religious events such as prayer nights, soul-enrichment talks, and religious celebrations for the Malaysian Muslims in Belfast.
One of our events that every Malaysian (even the locals and other international students) look forward to is our Malaysian Food Festival. Oh yes, the glorious Malaysian food! (Which by the way, is the main cause of homesickness for Malaysian students, I can assure you that.) From ‘Laksam’ to ‘Kuih Ketayap’, you name it.
We try our very best to help, in one way or another to make the Malaysians feel at home. So come join us and be part of our family and we promise you to bring home closer to your hearts. We welcome you, no matter what race or religion you are because at the end of the day we are one big happy family.
