23 Liaisons and their guest of honour, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, attended a dinner at Kechara Oasis Vegetarian Restaurant at Jaya One on Monday, 23rd Jan 2009. It was a special dinner to celebrate the induction of two new Apprentice Liaisons, Mr. Bill Keith and Ms May Woo.

Bill Keith, a renowned Malaysian fashion designer was recently sworn in as Apprentice Liaison for Creative Arts and Kechara Soup Kitchen. Ms. May Woo has been appointed the Apprentice Liaison of Kechara Paradise Outlets and Kechara Saraswati Arts, the first authentic Tibetan Arts Studio in South East Asia.

Before the dinner commenced, H.E. did a short prayer and spoke briefly on the importance of Kechara Paradise outlets and Kechara House as portals to introduce the multi-faceted Kechara organisation to new people. H.E. also spoke on the importance of planning for one’s Dharma life that will bring ultimate happiness in the long term.

The menu for this occasion included Kechara Oasis’ specialty dish, vegetarian Yak Beef Tingmo. Only 3 months old, Kechara Oasis is under the direction of its founder, Ms Irene Lim, who has been H.E.’s student for more than 17 years. Kechara Oasis was inspired by H.E.’s efforts to promote vegetarianism and non-violence towards animals. The profits from Kechara Oasis directly go towards supporting H.E.’s Dharma work.

Just after dinner, Liaison Sharon Saw, the Vice President of Kechara Soup Kitchen (KSK), presented H.E. with the keys to a van that has been donated to KSK. This van will greatly help the dedicated KSK volunteers with their food distribution rounds to the homeless people of KL.

The night ended late as H.E. and the Liaisons continued with a long meeting on the direction and future plans of the organization, to be announced to all in the near future.
