Deepavali Celebration with Children from Ramakrishna Ashrama Penang

Funny thing I can tell, I think I never have had dinner with so many kids before as far as I can remember. Well again, there is always a first time for everything 🙂Photobucket

Anyway, this time, I have 23 children from Ramakrishna Ashrama as my dinner dates in conjunction with Deepavali celebration at Swez Brasserie, Eastin Hotel Penang. This event is actually part of Eastin’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Also, it is Eastin’s initiative to ensure the less privileged get to join in the celebration of the festive of lights and of course to bring our smiles and laughter from the children.

The children were treated for a sumptuous semi buffet dinner with the Eastin’s staff who are please to share the joy of Deepavali with the less fortunate.

    Can I customized my own salad with that extra “leow” standing there? LOL~ Not a bad DIY Salad Corner, it has smoked turkey and smoked salmon as part of the ingredients too~ 🙂
