It was an annual gathering of all the parents and the kids as well as the teachers at the UPK. And since we all are coming from different parts of the world, it was indeed a great opportunity to know more about our friends' cultures.
Lots of great food were served during that time. And from many parts of the world.
We have Bengali sweets, cheese puffs from Colombia, different types of biscuits, macaroni schootel, caramel pudding, vegetable samosa, Indonesia fried noodles and sooooo many more!

Too bad I didn't really catch all the names of those glorious food :)
But you can imagine how fun it was!
It was breifly started by Ms. Linly's remarks welcoming everyone. Then we all sat in those tiny colorful chairs and started distributing food for everyone.
When us, the parents, arrived, the kids already got their beautiful plates filled with the food of their choices.
Big laughters were certainly heard here and there as we enjoyed the food and chitchat among teachers, kids, and parents.

We discussed a lot about the food being served. It was fun to discuss the traditional food, the way they were cooked and how delicious they were. We had fun discussing about our childhood backhome as well. How I miss my home town :).
The kids were having fun, too. They ate a lot, chatted a lot and asked a lot about this and that. They certainly loved to have their parents around among friends :).

One month before this gathering, parents were asked to fill the form, informing what we would bring and we needed to write down the ingredients as well to ensure those food were safe for the kids. We didn't need an allergy attack while enjoying this fun time...
|who wants some moreee...|
After enjoying our early lunch, the kids were having one game together and dancing to the music.
They asked the parents to join the dance, too!...
It was indeed a fun day for all of us...
And I love to see those happy faces at school!
Hope they will have more gathering like this soon :).
