To all my friends and students from SEDAYA days!!
Remember how the students had to queue up for their food at meal times?
Food was freshly cooked from supplies sent from Sibu (Sarawak Cold Storage) and the school Students' Food Committee would be controlling the quantity and quality. They were really excellent!
However I remember how easy it was also for the cooks to open up tins of sardines and other types of tinned food at meal times. Often I marvelled at the opened tin cans at the back of the kitchen.
It was nice to know that many girls who had small appetite would pass their surplus food to their fellow boys students who were sitting at the next table.
Work party....this made MEN of our boys.....and how often they have come back to me and say that work parties were really good training ground for them.
One YB said that the parang holding has helped him develop a good golf swing!!
And I am sure he is not the only one thinking of that!!
Till today I still love having some vegetables growing in a pot or a box although I have never become a really good farmer or gardener myself.....
