Nusantara Dinner and Romance

It was a festive nite in Teluk Tempoyak for over a hundred delegates including dozens from neighboring countries of Indonesia and Thailand, who are in Penang for a two-day gathering in conjunction with the 26th Annual Meeting for the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) Joint Business Council (JBC), held at the Gurney Resort Hotel & Residences.

Guests, many of whom were brought to the venue in four police-escorted buses from their respective hotels in George Town (Tanjung), were treated with Malay traditional delicacies including grilled fish, prawns and other seafood served with hot and sour sauce, chicken sate (grilled meat) with nut sauce, roti jala with curry, rice etc. and fruity juices.

Among the distinguished guests include YB Tuan Abdul Malik Kassim (Penang State Executive Councillor chairing Domestic Trade Consumer Affairs, and also the local State Assemblyman for Batu Maung) representing the YAB Chief Minister of Penang, Tuan Rizal Faris Mohideen Abdul Kader (President of the Penang Malay Chamber of Commerce) and representatives from other chamber of commerces, PERDASAMA, ICT Penang, Penang Bumiputera Petty Traders Association and head of delegates from Indonesia and Thailand.

And what would a dining experience be at Restoran Seri Idaman, one of the popular eating spots in southern Penang island for those opting for seafood, without good live performance and music - troupes from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Sumatera and Southern Thailand entertained the audience with lively dance and traditional music, closed with a modern Puteri Gunung Ledang rendition, the "Asmaradana" (literally, casual romance).
