Just this year alone, they have organised three successful events - a physically challenging outing at the Outward Bound School, a camping trip in Kuilu and finally the year end Gila Gila Night at Shangrila Tanjung Aru Resort.
Mr. Goh, the guest of honour, is a director of Seri Mengasih who has been a long-time (20+ years) supporter of the school.
With her teachers, Irene and Anna.
With her sister, Leanne and her best friend, Nurminah.
A few of the teachers of Seri Mengasih, who are truly the unsung heroes. Irene, top right, has been with the school since it started (almost 30 years ago).
They were 'ordered' by the organising committee to dress up in evening gowns and fittingly so, they looked totally stunning.
Irene, teacher turned singer for the night and she brought the house down.
Cikgu Dayang, all smiles, after receiving a present from the students.
The best dressed lady of the night, Nursyila.
Last but not least, food... glorious food. Choices made by the committee members and amazingly, there were petai sambal and pie tee (food that are not so commonly known in Sabah).
... in a most beautiful arrangement - the shape of a lotus flower.
Petai and sambal.
Penang famous 'pei tee' - Leanne's favourite.
The salad counter where I spotted all the above dishes. Western - Ceasar's salad, eastern - Thai pamelo salad and local. What a spread.
Yummy mango santan jelly, with chunks of sweet mangoes.
This kuih in pandan leaf is really good with the most lovely taste of fresh santan. I took more than my share (as Leanne and Keshia didn't want their share).
Mini cheese cake, light fruit cake and chocolate cake. I tried all and they were all good, especially and rather surprisingly, the fruitcake. It was moist and just perfect without been too sweet.
I didn't post any picture of the main dishes because they didn't look good enclosed in those Huge stainless steel containers. We had beef rendang, teriyaki chicken, seafood green curry (very good), Sabah vegetable and Sabah wild rice. Excellent choices.
The evening was packed with good food, games, karaoke singing, dancing and laughter. A truly beautiful evening.Thank you, Kangaroo Club.
