Taste of SEA: Night Market


*Post Event Round Up*

The student-led “Taste of SEA: Night Market” held on the 16th November 2018 illustrated the best of what Southeast Asia has to offer. From the excellent cuisine to the diverse range of performances, the event demonstrated the strength of the Southeast Asian clubs at UBC. With 6 Consulate Generals taking part offering information and complimentary desserts, the event successfully increased Southeast Asia’s ever-expanding reach. At the venue, on behalf of UBC and CSEAR, Professor Cesi Cruz gave an opening speech that highlighted themes of love and harmony found in our communities. Followed by gracious opening remarks from the Consul-General of Malaysia, Mr. Shamsul Nizam Shamsuddin, marking out the successes of the student clubs in fostering a growing community. Complimenting the speeches was the debut of the UBC Association of Southeast Asian Clubs (ASEAC) which established the first official association among the 6 respective clubs. The event was met with overwhelming success, reaching over 400 attendees in the AMS Nest. In short, this event has showcased the very best of UBC multiculturalism, and we at CSEAR along with the UBC community look forward to such events in the future.


Photos of the event can be view on the official UBC ASEAC facebook page.
