Executives from international property developer Lendlease and community leaders became “chefs” for a while on Thursday (June 1), during a cook-out at Paya Lebar Quarter.
They were preparing food and serving migrant workers as a gesture of thanks for their hard work, before joining them at the communal iftar dinner where Muslims observing the holy month of Ramadan break fast at dusk.
This was the second consecutive large-scale gathering organised by Lendlease during Ramadan, and gado-gado — a popular Indonesian salad — was prepared for Muslim workers, who make up 50 per cent of its 1,200-strong workforce. A similar one was held last year where food was catered for the workers.
