    The Wee Kim Wee Centre, SMU and Turkish Cultural Centre cooperated in a Turkish Whirling Dervishes Sema performance at SMU, last Saturday.
    Audiences were amazed with the show. There was an overwhelming response to the programme by the invitees. Chairs in the saloon did not meet the need of the curious crowd gathered for this event. Dervishes were so happy with the attention gathered by this great number of spectators and they enjoyed the atmosphere with their Singaporean hosts.
    The ancient sacred ritual of the Sema performance of the Mevlevi order of Sufism is regarded as one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing expressions of spirituality and art. With origins in Turkey and inspired by the great 13th century mystic, poet and philosopher, Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi, the ritual seeks divinity and maturity, carrying his message of love, brotherhood and tolerance.

    Türk Kültür Merkezi ve Wee Kim Wee Merkezi tarafından 15 Kasım Cumartesi günü Singapur Management Üniversitesi’inde (SMU) Sema Gösterisi düzenlendi. Programa Singapur’da yaşayan Türkler ve yerel izleyiciler yoğun ilgi gösterdi. Semazenler, misafirlerin ilgisinden duydukları memnuniyeti dile getirdiler.

    According to the tradition, Noah's Pudding or Ashure is a meal prepared by Noah for the people in his ark. 

    Since then sharing Noah's Pudding is a symbolic representation of the unity and essential relationship of humans to one another in Mediterranean cultures. People prepare the pudding at home and send a bowl to each of their neighbours. The tradition still continues today in Turkey.

    We came together with our Singaporean and Turkish friends on Saturday, 8th November to share the Noah’s Pudding. Also, members of TCC distributed a bowl of Noah’s Pudding to TCC’s neighbours in Watten Estate Neighbourhood. Our neighbours were very happy to receive the pudding and learn about the unique Turkish tradition. The guests enjoyed the delicious home-made food as well as the social interaction in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

    We would like to thank Mrs Emine Demet for her devoted hard work in cooking ashure.

    AŞURE GECESİ

    Türk ve Singapurlu arkadaşlarımız ile 8 Kasım’da, Aşure günü münasebeti ile Türk Kültür Merkezinde bir araya geldik. Sıcak bir ortamda yapılan programda, aşure tadında muhabbetler edildi. 

    Ayrıca Kültür Merkezimizin bulunduğu mahalledeki komşularımıza, gönüllülerimizle beraber aşure dağıttık. Komşularımız aşure ikramımızdan ötürü memnuniyetlerini dile getirdiler.

    Emine Demet Hanım’a pişirdiği lezzetli aşure için teşekkür ediyoruz.
