In conjunction with the celebration of the holy month, Ramadan, on 13th August 2010, the Department of Landscape Architecture, Faculty of Built Environment, UTM held its 2010 Iftar, successfully organized in collaboration with EARTH society.  The Iftar was held to also inculcate the spirit of togetherness among the students and the landscape staff within the department and landscape community. The event started at 6.45 pm whereby all guests were gathered at Block B11 Gallery Hall. While waiting to break fast, Associate Professor Dr. Mohd Zin bin Kandar delivered a short ‘tazkirah’ regarding  “Fasting and Ramadan”.
The Break Fast was initiated at 7.19 pm when all guests were served dates and ‘bubur lambuk’ (porridge) before the main course which is the awaited dish, Mak Jah’s Nasi Briyani, from Kempas. All students and Iftar’s Committee members worked hand in hand in making this event successful. The brisk but interesting event provided an insight regarding Malaysian culture and Muslim events for the international students. The delicious food and the events went smoothly as planned. After the break fast event came to an end, the men performed the Magrib’s prayer and the event ended at 8.30 pm.
