Puffs to Bring the House Down!! - WS #29



It's the last Sunday of the month again. Besides the monthly S$1 (US$0.73) Lunch, we had a Curry Puff Making Lesson at Katong Community Centre for the residents.

Lunch consist of Seafood Noodles, Squid Balls, Seaweed wrapped Chicken, Chocolate Eclairs, ondeh-ondeh (Sweet Potato Balls) and sandwiches. Oh .... plus hot beverages
or chilled orange juice.

Instructor teaching us how to make the dough....


MP Lim Biow Chuan dropping in after his walkabout.

The old and the young.... having fun.

Deep-frying the puffs.........

The product of every one's effort....
Delicious!!!


My one year old digital camera is giving me problems now. Lines appear in all my photos.
I hope to get a sponsor. hehehe.....

  3. By the way, it is so happening at Katong CC. From the faces of the participants, I can see that such events bring smiles on their face, and get people connected.

  4. ck,
    Yes.... made by first-timers... mostly elderly ladies.

    It's very delicious though and easy to make. I wish I could send some over. :)

  5. oceanskies,
    Oh yes. Now every participant is looking forward to the next gathering.

    And the organisers are racking their brains to think of activities for them.

    Some of the residents seldom go out of their homes to mix with their neighbours. Such activity let them know more people. They also open up to the volunteers who could help them if the need arises.

  14. napaboaniya,
    Due to the heavy rain this morning (my prayers were answered!!), many didn't turn up. We had a cosy lunch with lots of food. :)

    I didn't eat ...... because I had a heavy breakfast at Old Town White Coffee. :)

  23. wilfrid,
    It's a monthly event.

    $1 buffet lunch for the HDB residents living in Tanjung Rhu estate. An activity is included.... it could be a cooking demo or art and craft. Sometimes residents have to pay $1 or $2 for the materials.... most of the time, it's heavily subsidised.

    It's to promote neighbourliness, get the residents to interact and participate in community activities. :)

  24. Sounds like a fun food session at the community center. I'm sure it was a worthwhile activity enjoyed by many.

  25. Hi rachel,
    The participants can't wait to attend the next date. hehe....

  26. It sounds like a good menu. I have never tried squid before. I heard that if they are not cooked perfectly they can be to hard to chew. So I have been reluctant to try.

    I like the flowers next to the curry puffs. It really adds to the presentation.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sounds like a good time. I'm sorry your digital camera is giving you trouble.

    ReplyDelete

  29. Hmm... it could be a good idea to check on u first before my next trip to S'pore; who knows I may be able to pop in for a good $1 lunch PLUS get to take a pic with ECL the celebrity blogger :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Out of shape puffs? I don't really care about the shape .. I care about the taste and how it melts in my mouth!

    Yuumm. It's one of the many many fried snacks I love.

    You must have had so much fun making those!

    ReplyDelete
