:: Homestay: The Review (Part 1) ::

Salam to all my readers.

Hey y'all. I'm back with so many stuffs to talk about. As I promised, I will share the moments of my homestay program which me and my MELTECH's students went to last week. Okay, lets go straight to the point. But I warn ya, there is gonna be lots and lots of pictures in this entry.

Total students who joined the event is 120 and we started off out journey to Bukit Gantang, Taiping at around 10 o'clock in the morning with our sleepy faces, as some of us didn't manage to get some sleep the other night, busy packing things. We arrived at the main site of Bukit Gantang homestay at 3 pm and we were happily welcomed by the villagers as they stood up in line waiting for us with wide smile carving on their faces. Soon we were divided to foster family and each family got 5 to 6 foster children. Wanna see my foster family? See the picture below.

On the first night there, we and our foster families went to a hot spring, sorry I don't know what they call that place, but it is a hot spring. At first, I thought it was a big lake with hot water coming down from a pipe or anything but it was not like what I had imagined at all. The place is divided into two area, the first area is where we fill up a bucket with hot water and put our feet in it whilst the second area is a pond, and you can swim or just immerse your feet in it. Basically we didn't do anything much on the first night, except for this, we went home and got to know our family better.

The next day, which is Saturday, was where the opening ceremony, blood donation, health exhibition and free medical check-up for the villagers took place. It started in the morning and ended at 2pm. Quite a hectic and packed schedule I must say, coz people keep coming to our exhibition like there's no tomorrow. There were also students from schools around Taiping that we invited to play some games and participating in colouring contest. It was fun to watch the kids having some fun with the stuffs we had prepared.

Okay, I think this entry is long enough for you guys to read, so I shall stop writing now. But this is not over yet. Stay tuned for the second part of this wonderful and exciting weekends. Until then, ciao!
