After our last Parsi New Year function in September 2022, our members were thrilled to join our maskless Jamshedi Navroz lunch function after a gap of three years. This lunch was planned for 26th March 2023 at the ballroom of the Singapore Island Country Club (SICC), overlooking the golf course.
It was a wonderful sunny afternoon and members arrived with their families, women in their gorgeous colourful gara and kor sarees, kids in their cute party dresses and men looked dapper in dagli. Members eagerly mingled and wished one another longing to meet and greet their friends, while wine, chicken tikka and samosas flowed freely.
The function was emceed by committee member Natasha Karanjia. She started with calling the children who were eagerly waiting to start the prayer recital with Ervad Percy Khambatta. Then President Burzeen Driver briefed members on the events of 2022 and then he introduced his committee. Two adorable new born babies from the Daruwalla and Antia family received Ang pao from PZAS and then all children under eighteen excitedly lined up to collect theirs.
As soon as ‘Jamva Chaloji’ was announced our foodie members lined at the big buffet counter to devour the delicious spread of soup, salads, fried rice, chicken kung pao, mutton rendang, thai curry, fish in lemon sauce, and desserts. All in all it was a lovely afternoon well spent with family and friends.
