On the 17th of May H.E. Ambassador Arild Braastad and his wife Nina Braastad hosted the Norwegian National Day Celebration.

It was held in the fashionable Grand Ballroom of the Renaissance Hotel, and more than 350 people attended the festivities.

Malaysia’s Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry, Datuk Muhkriz Mahthir proposed a toast to the Kingdom of Norway, and then H.E. Ambassador Arild Braastad reciprocated the toast and wished prosperity for Malaysia.  Both countries national anthems were played.

The rest of the evening the guest were able to enjoy food from both Malaysia and Norway, and the menu included tasty treats such as Norwegian salmon and herring. For the sweet tooth the desserts and numerous cakes were a feast both to the eyes and the stomach.
The entire evening was accompanied by pictures displaying the beautiful sceneries of Norway, on a big screen on stage.
The Embassy would like thank everyone who participated this evening for making this such a nice event!
