Closed for MCO 3.0

Featured

Due to the implementation of MCO 3.0 in Kuala Lumpur, MANZA House will be closed from 7 May 2021 – 7 June 2021. All activities will be cancelled during this period. Please keep an eye on our Facebook or website for further updates.

Stay safe and we hope to see you soon!

MANZA House is open!

Following last week’s temporary closure, MANZA House is back open for our regular activities this week. Should there be any further closures required, we will update members via the website, Facebook and email.

House temporarily closed

MANZA has become aware of some positive Covid cases among expats in Bangsar. With this in mind, we have decided to close MANZA House for all activities this week (26-30 April). This is a purely precautionary measure as there is some crossover between our members and friends. We look forward to seeing you all next week. We would like to remind all our members to continue practicing all SOPs, and help us keep our community safe.

Book Club starting soon!

MANZA’s new book club will meet for the first time at MANZA House on Wednesday 5th May at 7:30pm. You are invited to bring up to three book suggestions and help select our first book for the year. Enjoy a glass of wine and a chat with fellow book lovers. The book club will continue to meet on the first Wednesday of every month, all meetings free for members, 10RM for non-members.

AGM Postponed

Unfortunately MANZA is obliged to postpone the Annual General Meeting scheduled for this Wednesday 21st April, 7pm at MANZA House. Our sincere apologies for the late notice. We will post an update within the next few days as soon as we are able to set a new date. Please keep an eye on our Facebook or website for the latest updates. Thank you.

Waitangi Day & Australia Day celebration

While it may have been a month or so late, it was so exciting for MANZA to finally host our Waitangi Day and Australia Day celebration in conjunction with the Malaysia New Zealand Chamber of Commerce.

Over 50 guests gathered at Out of Africa Restaurant & Kudu Bar for a fun-filled afternoon of games, swimming, food and drinks. It was particularly enjoyable for many Australians and New Zealanders from the two organisations to connect for the first time. The buffet spread from Out of Africa was delicious as always, and the children’s thirsts were quenched by chocolate milk sponsored by Fonterra.

Young and old participants joined in the egg and spoon race, three legged race and thong (or jandal) in the hole, with some fantastic prizes generously sponsored by Bluestar AMG and CarePark. Prizes for the raffle included wine from MANZA’s regular sponsor Cyril at AGS, an authentic Akubra hat from Christine Lawder, a meat pack and book voucher.

After a long year of on and off lockdowns with very little to celebrate, it was a huge relief to see this event go off without a hitch. We hope this will be the first of many more social occasions throughout the rest of the year.

Welcome back to MANZA

MANZA House has been buzzing over the last two weeks as we welcomed back our members for regular activities including Mahjong, Bridge and Craft. While we are not yet at full capacity, it has been wonderful to reconnect with friends, meet newcomers and resume some aspects of normal life.

Last Thursday was a particularly festive occasion as we finally held a welcome back coffee morning, originally scheduled pre-Christmas! What was to be mulled wine, made with wine generously donated by Asian Tigers, became delicious sangria. The MANZA committee supplied a decadent array of treats and the attendees all enjoyed their morning out. With wine to spare we also held a small raffle meaning we were able to raise some much-needed funds for our regular charities.

We look forward to seeing more of our members return to the house in the coming weeks, and will keep you all informed of further activities to be scheduled soon.
