PERTH NEWS


PERTH MALA LUNCH


Thirty three MALA members enjoyed a delicious lunch on Thursday 26 May at the Bentley Pines TAFE Training Restaurant.  

For just $30 we were treated to an excellent three course meal – as an example:

Lime spiced tiger prawns, fennel, baby zucchini salad, coconut coriander dressing [entrée]

Chicken breast, maple syrup, whisky glaze, saffron, corn, chickpeas, cracked wheat [main]

Baked chocolate cheesecake, raspberry coulis, clotted cream, almond praline [dessert]

Add in a glass of wine and the conversation and laughter flowed freely!

Although a training restaurant, the set up and service were nothing less than professional, with requests received from members to revisit for another lunch.   Watch this space!



Current Issues in Language

presented by Daniel Midgley (of ABC Radio's "Speakeasy" fame) was enjoyed by a small but enthusiastic audience who may have possibly learnt how to swear without offending(?)

Daniel's M.A.L.A. lectures are all available for download from the Internet.  



Highlights and challenges in our Lecture program.

How do you present to an audience, and adequately do justice to the enormous contributions made to W.A. and our nation by Edith Dircksey Cowan ?

Expert presenter Hilary Silbert felt the only way to demonstrate Edith Cowan's prolific achievements was to draw up a time-line of her amazingly productive life.  The challenge of how to display it required a little reorganisation of the lecture room!
