AGM Retro Night
" the ladies were fashionably dressed in retro styles and the gentlemen regally attired in their black tie outfits "

It was an elegant and tasteful night at the Bailliage’s Annual General Meeting Dinner event held in the Olio Italian Restaurant of the Ramada Plaza by Wyndham Melaka.

The esteemed members led by Bailli Julie Tan were adorned with their respective Chaîne ribbons, the ladies were fashionably dressed in retro styles and the gentlemen regally attired in their black tie outfits making the event distinct from the formal Bailliage dinner.

Members and their guests mingled graciously sipping sparkling wine, nibbling on delicately prepared canapes and conversing affably as they anticipated the eight-course dinner paired with delicious wines prepared for the evening.

The meeting of gastronomes and professionals was enhanced by a “retro” theme.

General Manager Klaus Sennik announced that he was honoured to present the hotel’s uniquely-crafted dinner. Each dish was meticulously prepared by his team headed by Chef de Cuisine Khairul Anuar.
