Selamat Datang !!!
Selamat Datang is welcome in Malaysian language. This site is not only open to all Malaysians who reside in the state of Illinois but we encourage people with Malaysian connections to visit us wherever you are around the globe. If you are planning to visit, study or work in Illinois, you have come to the right place. We will assist you to get acquainted with life in this Mid-West state.
For those of us in Illinois and the neighboring states, please make this website as your one-stop resource and make new connections by joining the network. We are promoting the unity of Malaysians throughout this region and beyond.
It was a weekend of sports and sportsmanship for Malaysians in Illinois. The weekend weather of high 60s really helps in bringing together the golfers on Saturday Oct 16 and the sccoer players on Sunday Oct 17 to the great outdoors where the beautiful fall foliage is peaking.
The 1MAI Golf Challenge Bowl is won by a young Malaysian from Peoria. After a gruelling five and a half hours on the challenging White Hawk golf course, Zarul has finally emerged to be the first golf champion, beating ten other participants. Congratulations to Zarul. More golf photos can be viewed here.
On Sunday Oct 17, 2010 three teams competed for the 1MAI Soccer Challenge Trophy in Wilmette IL. The Purdue team won the championship by 2 points after facing the Chicago and Champaign teams in round robins. Congratulations to the Purdue team. More photos can viewed here.
Message from the Prime Minister's office
On behalf of the Prime Minister, let me thank you for this initiative which will hopefully go a long way in fostering better ties among Malaysians of various ethnicities. It is good to remind students of the strength of our unity based on the Federal Constitution and Rukun Negara, which has served us well since Merdeka.
Wan Ahmad Shihab Ismail
Special officer to the Prime Minister
Director of Public Relations.
