my helper made a breaded fish fritters for teban gardens community breakfast this morning on 10.2.2017. ^^
so i didn’t have to do anything today, just the delivery man la… 🙂
today there was a huge crowd. i was told 107pax. 🙂
this my 28th friday breakfast community meal at teban gardens community service centre. this time made by my filipino helper.
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.
my helper cut & marinated the dory fillets overnight in the fridge.
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.
i did not try today, but all the helpers said it was excellent.
anyway we had it at home several times prepared by our helper so i was confident it would be good la….
the crowd is getting bigger by the day.
& they all start early to queue for the food.
used to be starting at 9am now they start queueing at 8.40am.
today the centre director, herself an excellent chef who also cooks on occasions for the community breakfast, arranged a dumpling 饺子 demo by a resident who had before owned a eating stall in china.
here he is doing the demo.
the dough was freshly made.
he did the kneading & cutting the small doughs.
the centre director had a trial run the day before so she was completely familiar & explaining the process to the group.
and many were keen to try wrapping the dumpling 饺子 themselves.
there were 3 different types of fillings馅＝minced pork & chives, minced pork & chinese white cabbage, and chives with tiny cut tofu etc.
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.
