The One Big Happy Family-OMPH Family Day
OMPH Parish which currently has over 5000 families consisting of close to 40 BEC’s and stretching from Tg Rambutan and Bercham to Taman Cempaka held its Family Day Food and Fun Fair last weekend and it was cool fun throughout the morning.
The event started at 9am and saw a steady stream of parishioners walking through the 41 stalls offering food, games and activities.
There was a whole variety of foods available from designer ‘Spaghetti Joe’ meals to nasi kunyit, genuine Sarawak Laksa specially made by none other than true blue Sarawakians themselves, delicious Tom Yam bee hoon, satay and delicious cakes and bisquits made by a generous support group who came all the way from Kuala Lumpur.
There even was a banana leaf stall set up for lunch which was well patronized.
A team of DJ’s provided by Melvin and his brother contributed a steady flow of requests throughout the event.
For the children there were game stalls and face painting, henna art and an inflatable jungle gym while a large number of the children participated in the coloring competition.
With a wide variety of activities to occupy the time it was no wonder that whole families from young to old supported the morning.
Many were seen having a light meal and chatting under the huge dining tents enjoying the day and listening to the DJ’s selection of music.
A note of appreciation to the participants of the cooking competition for preparing a quality menu consisting of a starter, main course and dessert.
The last event to call it a day was the “Guess the weight of the cake” which took its last ‘guess’ at 2.15pm.
The weight of the cake was 7.8kgs and had two winners Jacinta Emmanuel and Socoro Sibatun.
Overall the event was a wonderful day of friendly networking amongst family and friends from throughout the parish.
