Over 20 women from Kampong Sungai Teraban demonstrated their culinary creativity during a two-day cooking workshop at the Kampong Sungai Teraban Community Hall over the weekend.

The Kampong Sungai Teraban Village Consultative Council (MPK Sungai Teraban) organised the ‘Kuih, Chicken and Fish Cooking Workshop,’ led by its Women’s Bureau. Participants whipped up tantalising fish and chicken dishes, as well as traditional kuih, which were judged based on creativity, cooking techniques and presentation. Guest of honour Nur Farhana binti Abdullah Ajak, the spouse of the Belait District Officer, was welcomed at the closing ceremony by workshop chairperson Suraya binti Haji Abas.

Nur Farhana discussed with participants what they had taken away from the workshop.
Meanwhile, Suraya pointed out that the MPK Sungai Teraban had previously organised a similar workshop on making kuih pastry and traditional local kuih.

Prizes were awarded to the top performers.

The event concluded with a photo opportunity.
