Although not all of us practice the fast, everyone attending the function rejoiced in harmony to chat , listened to tausyiah and entertainment, and had a bit of discussion on the meaning of ramadan.

The function was ended by Adzan, the muslims’ prayer call , which was also meant that it was time to enjoy the food that we have prepared. One of the employees, Pepeng, shared his opinion on the function : ” I have been working for Binus for years and I can only tell that the bond that the employees  in Kijang campus has  is just getting stronger”. We certainly hope so, Pepeng. [irf]
