Activities

Apart from giving of their time and effort in various UWAS projects, UWAS members still find time to catch up with each other as they participate in various activities organized by Membership and Programme Chair, Casey Tan. Each activity is customised to UWAS requirements and includes a heavy dose of fun and food underpinned and laced with a healthy dose of culture and learning.

The UWAS International Rice Dumpling Festival (5 June 2016)

 To celebrate the dumpling festival, UWAS International Rice Dumpling Festival was held on 5 June 2016. More than 30 UWAS members and friends joined the event held at Grandeur 8 to learn the art of making different kinds of dumplings from around the world.

Participants had the chance to make their own Singapore style Chinese dumpling with meat and salted egg yolk filling, Nonya dumpling, Vietnam style sweet dumpling, and even a special mango sago dumpling. It was an eye opening experience to be exposed to different kinds of dumpling that many would otherwise not even know about.

Members were treated to a spread of local Yong Tau Foo and fruits at the end the day and all participants took home a bunch of their proudly self-made rice dumplings to share with their family.

Through this event, members gained new knowledge on dumpling varieties, built stronger bond with one another and new friendships were forged.

Members started the trip with a tour at Desaru Fruit Farm, where they enjoyed a durian feast, along with fresh fruits from the orchard.

At Malacca, it is definitely a must to have a taste of the local authentic Nonya food. Members enjoyed a meal of Nonya cuisine and took a stroll at the local Pasar Malam at Jonker Street to immerse themselves in the local culture and heritage.
