NRY Hari Raya Celebration 2023
Like any yearly tradition, a grand celebration of Hari Raya Aidilfitri of NRY Architects is the annual affair that has been awaited by every staff member of NRY Architects. Organised under the purview and planning by the sports club of NRY Architects, the NRY CREWS, the event marks the second activity of the year for NRY CREWS. For the first time ever, the celebration was held outside of the NRY Architect office premises at Menara Teo Chew. A chic colonial bungalow turned into an exclusive eatery tucked in the city centre of Kuala Lumpur, the Banglo 289 in Jalan Raja Chulan was selected as the event venue.
With the oldie theme of Orang Dulu-Dulu, everyone was truly embraced by the spirit of 50’s to the 70’s era when they were donning their best dresses and accessories for the event. Upon reaching the restaurant, everyone had the photo opportunity at the vintage-style photo booth, before proceeding to the dining table for the lunch session.
Plenty of mouthwatering classic Hari Raya menus and Malay traditional dishes were served that had met everyone’s palate. The celebratory atmosphere was enlivened by Hari Raya songs in the background, on top of the creative and unique outfits by everyone. Filled with chats and laughter, the lunch session was more than just a Hari Raya gathering, as some people took the chance to explore the cool restaurant compound.
Before the event ends with a group photo session, the event organiser representative, Faradila asked everyone to cast their vote for the Best Dress contest for the male and female category.
