Over 200 member of the Indian community in Seria, Belait District participated in a fun-filled weekend at the Charity Food fest at the Indian Association of Belait (IAB) premises in Seria last Sunday evening.
Fifteen food stalls were set up by members of the association, which served delicacies from different parts of India including Idlis, Parothas, Pani-Puri, Pakodas, Tandoori Chicken, Indian tea and many others.
