It has been two weeks since the wonderful Family Fun Fair in Johor Bahru. Our happy thoughts linger on with gratitude and appreciation to all donors, supporters, stall operators, volunteers and participants of the joyous event!
Nalanda was honoured to host Yang Berhormat Dato’ Teng Chang Khim, a senior Selangor State EXCO Member, at our recent ‘Family Fun Fair’ held in Sri Serdang. Despite his busy schedule, Dato’ Teng accepted Nalanda’s invitation to be our Guest-of-honour at the festive event.
Excellent weather greeted the crowd at ‘Family Fun Fair’ 2016 organised by Nalanda Johor Bahru Branch. It was only the second year the ‘Fun Fair’ was held in J.B., yet the event was a resounding success due to the great support from the local community.
Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ in Johor Bahru had just opened at 8.00 am this morning with an enthusiastic crowd streaming in. An hour after opening, more than 1,000 people have visited the Fair, which features 75 stalls selling a variety of food, beverages, household items, fresh vegetables, flowers and fruits.
Malaysia’s leading English daily The Star today reported on the Nalanda ‘Family Fun Fair’ held on 31 July 2016. The event aimed to raise funds for the proposed “K. Sri Dhammananda Centre” in Sri Serdang – which is a new facility dedicated to Buddhist education.
Over the last few weeks, Nalanda members and devotees joyfully gathered at NEO Centre Johor Bahru to prepare for the 2016 ‘Family Fun Fair’, which will be held on 11 September. The organising team had its final meeting last Sunday to ensure the smooth running of the event, which is expected to draw a few thousand people.
Nalandians from Serdang, Kuala Lumpur and Sungai Petani Branches are looking forward to joining the ‘Family Fun Fair’ at NEO Centre Johor Bahru this Sunday. A convoy of one bus, several MPVs and cars will depart from Nalanda Centre Sri Serdang after morning chanting tomorrow (i.e. Saturday). At 8.00pm, Nalanda founder Bro. Tan will join Nalandians in Johor Bahru for the evening service and deliver a talk.
