Dressed in a resplendent black and glittery saree, Naomi Joy Sakti wowed the panel of judges to emerge as the Best Dressed Mother, beating twelve other ladies to the award.
The event, My Mother, My Universe, was a celebration in conjunction with Mother’s Day, that was organised by MBG Events, headed by Maya Malar, for the fifth consecutive year since 2012.
With the objective of honouring and appreciating the sacrifices and unconditional love of a mother, the evening was well-attended by families from all walks of life.
The occasion was graced by Manitha Neya Mamani Ratnavalli Vijayaraj Amma, who donated RM7,000 to a charity event to be held on June 3, 2016.
The charity, Beauty Wisdom for Single Mothers, is open to all single mothers who wish to gain beauty and grooming tips, all at no charge.
This special session is organised by MBG Events in collaboration with Persatuan Setia Kasih Perak. It will be held at MH Hotel, Ipoh. For more information, check this Facebook Page.
Besides the search for the Best Dressed Mother, amidst non-stop entertainment in the form of singing and dancing, there was also a People’s Choice Award where guests voted for their favourite contestant based on the catwalk they liked the most.
It also witnessed honouring the oldest mother in the hall as well as mothers who were celebrating their birthday that weekend. Suffice to say that it was a most memorable evening and fun-filled, judging from the boisterous laughter from the guests.
Naomi, whose eldest sister was crowned Best Dressed Mother last year, encouraged all mothers to participate in MBG Events’ future Mother’s Day celebrations.
The mother to three girls said, “I have participated in this meaningful celebration since its first year. I have obtained plenty of tips on child-rearing from other mothers. We have fun and yet we get to learn and network.”
