Little Phoenix and Dragon Etiquette Workshop

To begin with, I would like to say that I truly enjoyed the The Little Phoenix and Dragon Workshop .

I’m extremely happy to share with you that the Little Phoenix and Dragon Etiquette Workshop had turned out to be very successful. It was held on Thursday, 16 June 2011 - 2 to 4pm at Lecture Room & Ixora Room.
There were 8 lovely kids age between 7 to 9 year old. I always try to keep the number of participants to the minimum so that each kid can get equal attention.

Children were encouraged to dress up in Peranakan fashion and the museum provided kebaya sarong and batik cina shirts for participants who wanted to dress up. When young kids were dressed up in traditional outfits, they looked amazing and the whole environment looked ethnic and grand.


The museum staff was very hospitable and helped in setting up the entire program. We started with some games and activities for the kids to open up and have fun. With the help of these games, they had a chance to interact with each other. It was fun to watch kids stand up and talk to each other. It gave them more confidence and I felt proud of them.

Then there was also a tour of the Peranakan culture where they were explained the meaning and the heritage of Peranakan history. The best part was when they learned about the Peranakan wedding events and culture. All kids were excited to know about various wedding functions. The kids also love the etiquette workshop segment conducted by me and wished the etiquette workshop was longer.

We soon had snack break and parents were allowed to join us later. Children enjoyed the variety of finger foods we had for them, and they practiced dining etiquette skills while eating. We also had sweet kueh, which became the favorite of all kids there. There were tea and coffee for parents and juices for kids. The whole menu was decided keeping in mind the taste preferences of young kids.

Later we handed out certificates to the participants. I was happy to see proud parents taking pictures of their young ones.

The program ended at roughly 4.30 pm and we bid farewell to happy kids and their parents.

It was certainly fun and I enjoyed the entire function. If you would like your child to participate in our holiday programs, contact me now as seating is limited. Early Bird Registration will save 10%.
