Mothers' Day Lunch@ Katong Community Centre


Happy Mothers' Day to all Moms!

I was invited to a Mothers' Day Lunch at Katong Community Centre. Mountbatten Member of Parliament Lim Biow Chuan was the guest of honour. Organised by the of Mountbatten Women Executive Committee, grassroots volunteers and residents enjoyed a sumptuous lunch and watched stage performances.

Multi-ethnic and mixed-race mothers gathered to celebrate Mother's Day at Katong Community Centre. Participants could choose from 3 different cuisines:  halal, Chinese and vegetarian.

I like the delectable 8-course Chinese cuisine which was prepared by Ping Si Kitchen. The chefs took care to serve the dishes piping hot. Many elderly residents enjoyed this sumptuous feast too.


This 86 year-old great grandmother (seated right) won a prize for being the oldest Mom at this event. She was sitting at my table, a very sweet and adorable lady :)


The MC conducted several games, one of the table games was getting the participants to blow balloons. It was a hilarious sight seeing many grannies struggling to blow balloons. My table won the balloon-blowing contest. :D


Besides the professional performers, some volunteers performed 4 songs with their ukuleles. It was an enjoyable performance despite the group having little time to practise.

Everyone had a wonderful and fun time. To all mothers, wishing you a Happy Mother's Day!
