THEY WILL ASK thee as to what they should spend on others. Say: "Whatever of your wealth you spend shall [first] be for your parents, and for the near of kin, and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer; and whatever good you do, verily, God has full knowledge thereof." - Al-Baqarah (2:215)

International Women's Day 2010

8th March 2010 - It's International Women's Day and the Perak Women for Women together with Soroptimist International Ipoh is jointly organising a week long celebration in Ipoh. The venue is sponsored by Kinta City Shopping Complex, Ipoh.

The theme? Equal Rights, Equal Opportunities.

Although Buddies will only be setting up our booth there from 11th to 14th, I went for the launch today. The Guest of Honor was YB Dato Hamidah Osman, state Exco.

While waiting for our VIP guest to come, a group of nurses from KPJ Ipoh Specialist Centre performed the poco-poco dance.

Arrival of our guest of honor (in blue tudung).

A welcome performance by the cheer leading group who call themselves Titans.

Launch of the event by a group of... women, of course...

Putting the stamp of approval for equal rights and equal opportunities.

Stamped and signed!

Performance by children from City Ballet Ipoh.

A group of retired ladies from Kelab Pesara Ipoh not wanting to be left out of the performances.

There was supposed to be one more performance, but it was already 6 pm and I needed to go back. So that's about all I have to report on the launch...

Coming up next: The talk.
