No better way to breach cultural differences than with fashion, good food 

Coming from a multicultural nation, it is common for our society to be plagued by racism. But when we observe children of different races playing together, we will notice the absence of this pernicious problem.

Racism is a learned trait, and with that said, the HiiChiiKok Foundation is doing its part to instil unity among the people, best done at a tender age.

Nine children and the staff were invited to a dinner to celebrate the birthday of YM Tengku Puteri Puan Sri Rosmawini binti Y.A.M. Tengku Dato’ Muiz Shah who is the President of the Chinese Cheongsam Association of Malaysia.

Now that the famed Chinese traditional dress is being mentioned, it is unsurprising that all the ladies came to the event at ICC Pudu dressed in cheongsam, as was the dress code. 

Everyone was treated to a sumptuous Chinese dinner, from steamed fish, lotus leaf rice, fried prawns coated with nestum, mushroom stew and more. These came in stages to keep the quality interaction alive.

But it was also a feast for the eyes as much as the tongue for the event was punctuated with various performances.

There came a performer who dazzled the crowd with the magical act of changing the colours of her mask, right in plain sight. This was followed by a solo and group singing performance.

It was already deep into the night but the event kept on giving. Every child received a gift pack consisting of chocolates, candles, candies and an ang pow valued at RM10 each.

For those who observe the event, they may assume that it was merely a night of enjoyment. But the lesson learned by the children was a subtle one. 

Joy and happiness is a universal feeling shared by all, regardless of skin colour. This fun-filled event is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis.

尚和美食媒介,无疑是弥合文化差异的最佳途径。

作为一个多元文化的国家,我们的社会往往深受种族主义之苦。但当我们观察到不同种族的孩子们一同玩耍时,我们会注意到这个有害问题的消失。

种族主义是一种习得的特质,因此HiiChiiKok基金会正在尽其所能在人们中灌输团结,最好是在儿童时期进行。

九名儿童和工作人员受邀参加了一场晚宴,庆祝由马来西亚华裔旗袍协会主席Tengku Puteri Puan Sri Rosmawini主持的生日派对。

现在提到了著名的中国传统服饰,毫不奇怪的是所有女士都按照旗袍的着装规定出席了这个在ICC Pudu举办的活动。

每个人都品尝到了丰盛的中餐,包括清蒸鱼、荷叶饭、奶香虾仁、香菇炖菜等。为了保持高质量的互动,这些菜品分阶段上桌。

然而,这也是一场视觉和味觉的盛宴,因为活动中穿插了各种表演。

有一位表演者以变换面具颜色的神奇技艺惊艳了观众,就在众目睽睽之下。接着是独唱和合唱表演。

虽然已经深夜,但活动仍在持续。每个孩子都收到了一个礼物包,包括巧克力、蜡烛、糖果和一个价值10令吉的红包。

对于观察这个活动的人来说,他们可能认为这只是一个愉快的夜晚。但孩子们学到的教训却是微妙的。

快乐是一种普遍的感觉,不分肤色。这个充满乐趣的活动只是孩子们每周参与的众多丰富活动之一。
