The meeting with Ms Mary in order to plan next academic year's events, is changed to Wednesday the 15th of June. The time, 8am, remains unchanged. We hope to see a lot of you. As some families are moving on to secondary school or leaving the country, the parent group is constantly in need of new additions. It’s a great way to make friends and to support our school, so we are looking forward to seeing you.
So far we don’t have any registrations for the "banana cake competition". Don’t be shy to show us your cooking talent, join the contest at, https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Puf_UlUPjx76MSRynFcz-cz7TxlGVxdzRrhunOqDrdw/viewform
Year 6 parents would like to thank the parents who donated old uniforms. Originally the post asking for more uniform was wrongly posted in the Y6 family group and not the general group, however it was a good surprise to see a lot of our parents answering the call and helping. Your help was really appreciated.
Have a lovely weekend,
Anne on behalf of the parent group.
Is "mixology"* a science?
Last night, a group of parents and teachers met at Sorae for a special class: a cocktail lesson. Tokyo Charm, Yozora, Ikebanatini and Story of Tanabata, just the names of the cocktails were an invitation to travel to the land of flavors. Mr Huy, Mr Duc and Mr My, were are guides to enter the world of mixology. Everyone picked a cocktail and went behind the bar to learn how to make it. Let’s say: it was fun, fun to do and fun to watch. Some of us could start a new career ;).
Yes, mixology is kind of a science, the mix of flavours can result in a delicious taste or a disaster. You need to measure not too much or too little of your ingredients to obtain the perfect combination. The canapés were also delicious. Saté, sushis, makis, quail eggs with a twist and mini skewers were presented to us. To conclude our evening we voted for the favourite cocktail. Tokyo Charm and Yozora were very close, but with its bubbles, its mango and passion fruit, Yozora was the winner of the night. We all went back home with the recipes to transform ourselves into "mixologists" and also with a gift voucher.
Once again, we would like to say a big "thank you" to Eva and the Sorae team (24-25, AB Tower, 76A Le Lai St, Hồ Chí Minh) for this special evening. Everything was just perfect. We also kindly thank Mr Kien for sending us a link to his pictures: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0Bz_mEI_o7nhOSl9lX0RCR2NET1U&usp=drive_web . Mr Kien is a free lance photographer and, if you are interested in his services, you can contact him at, email@example.com .
