This year’s 6th installation of Breakthru’s Best Café will be held on Saturday, 20th May 2017. Breakthru Enrichment Station (BEST) is easy to find. It is located on the second floor of Platinum Walk, a business enclave right beside Setapak Central. On that day, it will be hard to miss, just follow the music and the chatter of children and guests. Best Café is an entrepreneurship project by BEST children with special needs, aiming to raise funds to better equip the centre’s Kitchen. Another core objective of the initiative is to provide interactive learning opportunities for the children and teenagers with special needs or specific learning disorders. They will get to practise life skills like asking questions, inviting and leading people, taking orders and serving their customers. This exercise of supported active participation will help to build their confidence and develop better sense of self-esteem when they can carry out their tasks responsibly and independently. Last but not least, it also allows the children to have a glimpse of a working life.
What to expect:
Be prepared for a day chockful of food, activities, fun, games and parenting talks! You will be spoilt for choice as there is a wide variety of food, snacks and beverages prepared by our BEST children. To top it all, you will be treated as very important guests and experience the services of an excellent, extraordinary and enthusiastic team of waiters and waitresses who are just raring to make it your most enjoyable day!
Below are some of the tantalizing items that will be on the menu:
Strawberry Panna Cotta
Once you have had your fill, you may want to enjoy a game or two. Both parent and child are welcome to participate. Be prepared to have your dexterity, fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination put to the test! Among the games that we have prepared are a Hole-In-One (try to get the ball into the one of the 3 holes) and Flying Rings (throw the rings and aim it at the bottle).
There will also be a flea market for those looking for a good bargain. Brand new trendy handbags, clothes, shoes, accessories, and little trinkets will be among the many items that will be up for grabs. Here is a little sneak peek of the items that will be on sale.
And parents, we haven’t forgotten about you! There will be mini parenting talks throughout the day while your children enjoy themselves with the food, fun and games galore. Below is an itinerary of the talks to be held on the day.
Coupons are available for purchase online (bestcafe.b2.my) and on the day of the event. You may use the coupons to purchase food, beverages, and snacks; to participate in the games and, to buy items at the flea market.
