Papua New Guinea lunch at CWA
The Umina Beach branch of the Country Women's Association held their Papua New Guinea Luncheon on May 26.
Papua New Guinea is the country of study for the branch this year and the luncheon was held so members and guests could gain a better understanding of the country and its culture through an authentic three course New Guinean meal.
Sixty members and guests gathered at the Umina Beach CWA Hall to enjoy such items as sweet potato scones, bully beef casserole and the New Guinean pudding known as Skerah.
"Our branch was delighted to welcome Upu and Charmaine Kila to the lunch," said branch publicity officer Ms Margaret Key.
"Upu grew up in a Papua New Guinea and he and Charmaine worked there for many years and now are settled in Woy Woy.
"Upu received recognition on the Papua New Guinea Honours list for services to sailing.
"To our delight, our food was given top marks by Upu and Charmaine for authenticity and taste."
