Malaysia is a multi-ethnic country whose unique traditions and culture derived from the Malay, Chinese, Indian and other communities, along with some influence from Persia, Arab and European countries.

Each community has different thus unique rituals and customs for weddings, newborns and funerals. The said rituals and customs are practices that were passed down for generations.  Thus, the origins of these rituals and customs are worth exploring.

KLSCAH Women Section aspires to raise awareness and understanding of the general public towards the multi-ethnic customs and culture through the webinar series, in order to achieve mutual respect as well as to put Malaysia’s multicultural diversity on display.
