A FUN DINNER

Every month our village administration put on a dinner for the residents. Each dinner has a different theme. This month it was a Japanese dinner. The reason being a group of villagers went to Japan for a  short holiday. We didn't go because we had been before. Anyway the chef cooked two lovely dishes for an alternate drop. There are 80 people for dinner.
For dinner we had MISO SALMON on SHIRATAKI NOODLES with FINE VEGETABLES. TERIYAKI CHICKEN BREAST & RAMEN.GREEN TEA CAKE with YOGURT WASABI ICE CREAM, SWEET MANGO AND FRUIT COMPOTE for dessert.







Some residents spent time making origami table decorations.

We had a Japanese guest speaker and a demonstration on how to wear a yukata and obi. CEO and two staff members were the models and two residents volunteered to help by following the expert's instruction.

The finished dress called a yukata or summer kimono. Karen on the left is the village manager. Dana on the right is the office manager next to her is our CEO and owner of the village Chiou See. The Japanese lady in black did the demonstration.

Some residents dressed up too.

The high school students who came to help the chef and to do the serving. They are catering students.
