this my 28th friday breakfast community meal at teban gardens community service centre. this time made by my filipino helper.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens CSC on 8.1.2016.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

this morning she got up early to fry the fritters.

this time i had a good sleep till 8.03am. usually i leave by 8.15am so deliver the dish about 8.35am – 8.40am at teban gardens.

she told me the dumpling 饺子 were very good. i couldn’t stay to try.

it was an excellent morning. great community interaction & meaningful time for the centre staff & volunteers. & of course, many thanks to my helper also.
