Dear Members and Friends,

Happy Merdeka Day!

On this day 62 years ago (1957), the Federation of Malaya secured its independence from the British Empire.  The young country set about the task of nation-building - Malaya was later joined by Sabah, Sarawak (and Singapore originally) on September 16, 1963 to form what is now known as Malaysia.
AMBC will be celebrating both these historic days at our upcoming dinner event.  More details on this and other news below.
