This particular post is exactly 2 weeks late but this is just when I had the time for this blog.
How is everyone doing?
Last 2 weeks we had the annual multicultural day at my school. I had so much fun last year that when it was announced this year, I knew I wasn't going to miss it for anything even though I should have 'cos I had a very hectic week and a deadline to meet and needed some good rest. I thought all the stress would show on me but it wasn't so bad :)
So the highlight of the whole event is always the cultural diversity; everyone trying to interpret their culture with their specific attires, foods, music and even pictures. This year 19 countries were represented, as I gathered.
I had to escort the VIPs so I couldn't take a lot of pictures.
Last year, I was serving so I only managed to take some pictures, this year I promised I'd take a lot but then I heard I had to escort the VIPs. I was planning to take pictures of all the tables just after they were set before people went around to do the damage :) Sorry, I'm sure you would have loved them, it is always so beautiful. It's almost like you can get a real insight into their different cultures just by looking at their tables. ( My theory lol)
I put together a few pictures I could gather still, enjoy!
Immediately the food tasting session was declared open, everybody rushed to our table. There was a long queue that I had to just leave there and go eat at another table.
A guy from ..... (sorry I mixed up the country now but it was one of the European countries for sure) even came to ask for 'fiu fiu', he said he's had it before and was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, we didn't have anything "eba and soup" on the menu.
Seriously, I didn't know so many people liked Nigerian food like that. Last year, we had a long queue but it was towards the end. Because usually everybody goes to their table first before they start exploring other people's but this year, there was a long queue from start to finish maybe they planned for it after the last time LOL
My best food of the night
You know I'll always choose Nigerian food, if I had to put that in the mix, so I won't :) That was from the South Korean group by the way.
Last year, my best was the waffles from Norway, this year I decided to leave the comfort of Europe and the others to Asia.
As you can see, I spent a lot of time with the South Koreans. This outfit is usually worn by their brides.
The Indians also had nice outfits
And the Japanese
Justice being done to the national cake
I got this neck thingy(the long one) from the North Americans. I don't know how I managed to leave it there all night. I just realized I had it in almost all my pictures. My souvenir hehehe
And some comic relief:
And people were actually coming around to take picture with the Nigerian queen whereas it all started as a joke LOL
And I did take picture with her majesty, the graceful Nigerian queen too :)
Can you see the joke here?
It was a great night. And I can't believe I stepped into the hospital on Monday morning for practice and the first thing I heard from my colleague was "Wow, I love Nigerian food" hahaha
