MANZA Melbourne Cup 5th November 2019


Well the MANZA Melbourne Cup at the Grand Hyatt was such a fabulous, fun day on Tuesday 5th November! It’s always so amazing to see the enormous effort put into the beautiful hats, fascinators and outfits worn by both ladies and the men, and today was no exception! And the photos can speak for themselves! (The professional photos aren’t available yet, so there will be more coming!)

Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a success. We really appreciate your support, as the Committee puts a lot of work into organising these events and to see such a great turnout was very rewarding for us.

The bubbles, West Winds Gin, (which was a favourite of the day, with many comments about the excellent quality of the Gin) wine and beer flowed smoothly all day. Thank you to Callan Green from West Winds for the generous sponsorship.

The race was beamed in on very large screens around the room, so we could all see and feel the excitement building up at Flemington whilst the Calcutta was being called and tables were vying against one another for the winning horse!

And the winner is….. no 23, Vow And Declare To Table No 1! Congratulations!

The day flew by so fast, a delicious lunch was followed by the Raffle Draw Prizes as well as prizes for Fashions on the Field. It was a difficult task for the judges and we just wish everyone could have been given a prize as the ensembles were stunning!

Bluestar Amg kindly donated a brand new Iphone 11 as a Lucky Draw Prize and there was a very happy winner of this valuable prize!

We then danced the afternoon away. It was nearly 6pm before the last of our guests left the Ballroom to head home, some of us to an early bed, but we’re sure the party carried on into the night somewhere else!

We would also like to thank Asian Tigers for their continued wonderful support of MANZA, Air Asia and Mandara Spa, as well as Laguna Resort and Spa in Bali, and Bali National Golf and Country Club. Thanks also to Joss Hindmarsh Millinery, the Grand Hyatt, Sao Nam Restaurant, Ramsay Sime Darby, Pearlz Etc by Priti Kumar, Milestone Productions and Bill Cooper from TEG. A really big heartfelt thank you to all our sponsors.

Pink October Coffee Morning


Thank you so much to the Pink Ribbon Foundation for their very informative presentation at our Pink October Coffee Morning in aid of Breast Cancer, at MANZA House this morning.  

Whilst we all know we need Vitamin D, we were educated today on the importance of ensuring we have sufficient levels of this incredibly important Vitamin.  It can affect the outcome of many diseases and today we learnt of its importance in helping to protect us from breast cancer and slowing down cancer in women already diagnosed with the disease, so make sure you get your 15 or 20 minutes of sunshine each day!

We also had the privilege of listening to Myrna, a Breast Cancer Survivor, who shared the story of her journey fighting the disease with the support of friends, family and the Pink Ribbon Foundation.  Thank you, Myrna, we were very moved.  You can read her story on Page 22 of our MANZA October magazine which is available on our website at

We would like to thank our sponsors Asian Tigers today for their generous sponsorship of our raffle prizes and we were able to raise over RM550 for the Pink Ribbon Foundation.

Thank you once again to everyone who gave so generously to this great cause.

Thank you so much to the lovely people who came out on a stormy Friday night in bad traffic to support the MANZA PINK OCTOBER Drinks Night at Barat Restaurant in Bangsar.

It was a perfect venue upstairs at Barat and the staff looked after us so well all night.  As always, the light refreshments they provided to accompany our drinks were fabulous.

AGS International Movers kindly sponsored the night and there were some great prizes up for grabs in the raffle.   They are always such a generous sponsor.

Apart from a fun night meeting new friends, we were able to raise just over RM800 for the Pink Ribbon Wellness Foundation which will go towards the purchase of a new Mammogram machine to be used in small villages in Malaysia.

Thank you again to everyone who came! Enjoy the photos!
