Let’s spread some Christmas cheer!


While the CMCO has severely limited MANZA’s activities in 2020, we are hopeful that we will be able to welcome you back to MANZA House on 10th December for a Christmas coffee morning. The MANZA committee will be providing some delicious Christmas treats (including mince pies!), along with tea, coffee, and mulled wine with wine generously donated by Asian Tigers. We will also raffle a lovely hamper kindly donated by Care Park.

You will all be aware how much charities across the country have struggled this year, and we would appreciate any donations of non-perishable food for MANZA-supported charity, the Reading Room.

To comply with SOPs we will require you to register your name and temperature on arrival at MANZA House, and wear masks. Numbers will be strictly limited so please RSVP your attendance to [email protected] (or here on Facebook). We understand that the CMCO may be extended and restrictions may change at any time. If required we will do our best to reschedule the coffee morning.

This event is a great opportunity to renew your membership or sign on as a member for 2021 – our special early bird membership fee of 200RM per family is available until 15th February. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Stay safe!

In light of recent increases in COVID-19 cases across Malaysia, we would like to remind our members to continue following SOPs and keep yourselves and others safe – especially at MANZA! We plan to continue gathering for our regular weekly activities and other special events in the coming months, and the committee will do everything we can to stay safe at MANZA House.

When visiting MANZA House, please wear a mask, ensure you take your temperature and record your details on arrival, and wash your hands regularly. Keep a safe distance from others and avoid physical contact.

The MANZA committee and our partners at Malaysia Health Travel Council have decided to postpone the coffee morning and health talk scheduled for Monday 12th October. We will provide details of a new date for this event, as well as our Pink October coffee morning, as soon as possible.

Our weekly Mahjong, Bridge and Craft Groups will continue to meet at MANZA House. A reminder to all attendees that we have resumed collecting non-perishable food items for one of our charities, The Reading Room, and we appreciate any contributions you can bring when you attend these activities. Charities across Malaysia have been hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and any contributions we can make will make a huge difference.

Thank you all for your support!

Jamuan Teh Malaysia

Malaysia’s very own tea party: Jamuan Teh Malaysia (JAM). A celebration since 2009. Jamuan Teh benefits the Breast Cancer Welfare Association Malaysia (BCWA) and the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM).

This year, due to the fact that JAM is on the same week as our Melbourne Cup Function, MANZA will support Jamuan Teh at our Casual Coffee and Newcomers Mornings.

Come on along!

We have a small amount of merchandise to sell but the aim is to come together to support (by way of donation – which will be matched by Mary T!) not only our friends but everyone here in Malaysia who has been affected by cancer in some way.
