I sat with the boys and tried to break the ice. Some smiled backed whereas others were shy. But as soon as the games and clown show started, they surely loosen up and had fun. I cheered and clapped to engage and motivate the children as well as when the winners were rewarded with gifts and hampers. Certainly a pleasure of supporting the meaningful event for a good cause. Thereafter the residents including myself were treated to a delicious Buka Puasa spread cooked using Mahsuri sauce.

As for the food, I loved the nasi ambang. Never tasted before but certainly I love any dish made with rice. Nasi ambang won my heart with the different types of condiments plus the addition of ayam goreng berempah. The kuih-muih and jelly on the hand is a reminder that any Malaysian event is not complete without tucking into such delicacies.
