50th National Day in Moscow, 2007

AFTER CELEBRATING OUR 50th National Day in Belgrade, Serbia (link), we returned to Moscow for another round of celebrations.

Turning five-zero is a milestone, so it was held on a grander scale compared to the two previous years. It was held at Renaissance Hotel, Moscow on Tuesday, 4th September 2007. Two chefs were flown in to prepare a truly Malaysian fare while an artiste was at hand to demonstrate batik-painting.
