Historic Myanmar elections in November 2015 paved the way for an NLD government led by Aung San Suu Kyi to take office in March 2016, and saw the country deepen its graduated transition away from authoritarian rule. Nevertheless, military forces that for decades dominated national politics remain privileged in a constitutional framework designed to deliver ‘discipline-flourishing democracy’. In August 2017, the military intensified its ethnic cleansing campaign of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslim minority, and more than 750,000 refugees fled to neighbouring Bangladesh. One critical question that now confronts the 50 million people of this Southeast Asian nation is whether their push for greater democracy is strong enough to prevail over the resistance of a powerful military machine and swelling undercurrents of intolerance. Academics Roman David and Ian Holliday, authors of Liberalism and Democracy in Myanmar, explore the prospects for liberal democracy in Myanmar.

What makes an economy grow and prosper? The empowerment of individuals within a system of open and rules-based competitive markets is the answer to that simple, yet profoundly consequential question. There is compelling evidence of the dynamic benefits for individuals and societies from greater economic freedom. There is no single formula for overcoming challenges to economic development and maintaining prosperity, but one thing is clear: around the world, governments that respect and promote openness and free markets provide greater opportunities for innovation, progress and lasting development. Dr. Edwin J. Feulner, Founder and Former President of The Heritage Foundation, will examine the power of economic freedom and discuss the remarkable achievements Hong Kong has made and what lies ahead.

Every participant will also be able to bring home the laksa paste to make your own creations.\r\n\r\nHistory of Laksa\r\nThe origin of Sarawak Laksa dates back to the early 1940s’. According to an article written by Edgar Ong in Flavours magazine, the local legend is that a Chinese Teochew immigrant from Guangzhou named Goh Lik Teck first began peddling his noodle dish along Kuching’s Carpenter Street in 1945. The dish was only made up of six (6) ingredients, which is how it got its name – the Hokkien term for six is \"lak\" and \"sa\" is slang for vermicelli.\r\n\r\nCulinary demonstrator – Agnes Chin\r\nOriginate from Sarawak but have been calling Hong Kong her home, Agnes never forgets her roots. She heads back to Kuching, a town in Sarawak, regularly to keep in touch with her family and friends, of course getting her much needed Sarawak Laksa when she is there.
