International Lunch

Date : 13th May 2011

On International Day, normally parents were required to prepare lunch for their children's class. It was arranged that Y4 classes would join Y3 classes for the lunch. That was great because DS would have more halal food to eat since S who hailed from Brunei had a son in Y3.

Table laden with international food. . .
I was required to make something sweet, so I decided to make kuih keria. I thought the donut look-a-like would probably entice the children to eat them.

There it is my kuih keria, complete with Jalur Gemilang and description...

I also decided to make sate, well actually I enlisted the help of DH. I never marinate sate, whenever we decide to have sate, it is officially DH's job to marinate it. I only helped him to grill it the next morning after I came back from the school parade. The sate was not so bad really :D

Beef sate, hey where's the Jalur Gemilang ??
Now let's us see some photos of the kids enjoying the sumptious food :D

Say hi  boys. . . :D

DS with his Armenian friend Arek

Malaysian Food Ambassador DS, showing his Head Teacher and Miss RH the sate and asking them to try it :D
I suppose the idea of the International Lunch is to promote culture and food awareness among the international children. By sitting together and eating the various types of food, children are hopefully more tolerant and respectful of each other. Unfortunately, children being children, they tend to eat only those food that they know or have eaten before. From experience, it is sometimes safer to stick to something generally loved by them such as pizza and pasta. So for us, perhaps it's better to cook mee goreng (since it looks like pasta) as compared to nasi goreng. And another thing, do not bring too much. It's such a waste seeing the number of food transferred to the Staff Room and later, left uneaten !!!

Hmmm. . .  what happenned to my food then??

Alhamdulillah. . . habis :D
I wonder who ate them???

This boy must be the culprit - look at the number of sticks on his plate!!
Hehehee. . . no. . no. .  I only brought about 30 pieces of sate, so of course it's all gone right. As for kuih keria, alhamdulillah, there was a few pieces left, so I quickly distributed them to the mothers :D

When those empty little stomachs were full, some took the opportunity to have a disco party in the class :D

Hoola hoop dance ???

And monkey dance ???
