Cheque Presentation, BBQ and Steamboat

14/05/2005 - Saturday

Was at the Rotaract cheque presentation event. We managed to collect about RM20k for the WTYS project from the treasure hunt, the foot massage and donation from the public. Below is the report from the Organizing Chairperson.

Every minute a child loses his or her sight. Loses the chance to see the brilliant colors of a comic book, the rainbows in the sky, enjoy sunsets & the twinkling stars...

With this in mind, we embarked on Project Windows To Your Soul - to raise funds towards the vision care of underpriviledged kids. Starting in December on one raining evening with a seemingly impossible target of RM20K, we are proud to have come this far with the same energy, enthusiasm and commitment that we started out with. And of course, we are proud to say......

We surpassed our target and achieved RM26,081.53 which we happily passed on to Dato Dr Veera Ramani, medical coordinator of Tun Hussein Onn National Eye Hospital and vice president of Malaysian Association of the Blind in a historic cheque presentation ceremony today!! All the funds collected will go to the setting up of the new MAB&THONEH centre in Kota Bharu, Kelantan where it will be used for kids with vision problems/ educating blind kids. :) woo hoo, feels good after all the late nights, chicken rice and sweat pouring...


After the cheque presentation, we headed over to Irene's house for house warming party. We had BBQ! We were using the same stove as in Sg. Congkak =P~ Aiya Irene didn't prepare enough food leh. So some of the girls went out to tapao some food.

Anyways after all the food. The girls were sitting together, chit chatting and laughing. The guys were eating and eating =P~~~

Later, we played the "Honey, honey, will you marry me?" game. Err... didn't like it. Next we played the untangling game. The game was not bad, we got tangled and untangled but in the end, we end up untangling into 2 circles (suppose to be one circle). Then we played the "Heart Attack" game. Damm fun woi this game, but this time it was a little crowded (too many players).

After all the games, it was time to celebrate Michael's Be-early Birthday (the actual day is tomorrow 15/05/2005). As usual we sang him a Happy Birthday song and the Birthday song ala Rotaract style. No cake for him too, just a candle =P~

Later, we adjourned to Tanjung Mamak Bistro for some supper. We left the place at 1am.

Supper at Tanjung Mamak Bistro

15/05/2005 - Sunday

Cath invited us to her house for Steamboat and to have a WTYS post mortem meeting. We were suppose to start 6pm but you know lar Malaysian time. Dinner started at 7:30pm =P~

This is the my first time eating steamboat from rice cooker! Walaueh... it cooks really slow. But at least the soup was great. Thanks to Cath for making the delicious Tom Yam soup and Kavi for making the Chicken and Vege soup. Mmm... Delicious!

The food

Tom Yam Steamboat - Yummy =P~~~

Since everyone has to wait so long for the second round, we just took out our handphone for display (aka Nothing Better To Do). Guess what? Almost everyone uses Nokia phones.

After the dinner, we have WTYS post mortem meeting. The meeting lasted about 2 hours. After that, some of the guys appeared with a Tiramisu cake. It's time to celebrate Michael's Birthday again. Aiya, they also celebrated my birthday again (they celebrated my birthday last week). Am speechless. So as usual they sang the Birthday Song ala Rotaract style. Always say 'That I'm no use at all'. That's a lousy song lar =P Anyways, thanks guys!

Tiramisu Cake... Mmm... Slurps...

After the Birthday celebration, we cleaned up and left Cath's place. Overall, we had a great and wonderful time =)
