The event was organized by the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Singapore and patronized by the Vietnamese Embassy and Liaison Committee of the Vietnamese Community in Singapore
Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador to Singapore Mai Phuoc Dung highly appreciated activities held by the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Singapore, affirming that the association has helped create a useful playground, attracting Vietnamese students to interact, share knowledge and skills, and support one another.
During the event, Vietnamese students in Singapore learnt how to make “Chung” cake (square glutinous rice cake) and dried coconut flakes – the two typical culinary delights of the festive event. In addition, they also engaged in puzzle games, testing their knowledge of their home country’s culture, history, and geography./.
