The outreach event at Angsana USJ 1 last Saturday was an awesome success!
By God's grace, we put a smile on over 120 kids' faces and I was personally inspired by the genuine love shown by the volunteers towards the kids and their families.
Starting point - We met at Project Fireflies centre
Some kids were so semangat that they waited at the field since 8.30am!
So the volunteers had to keep them entertained until registration start.
Even Lionel Messi didn't want to miss the fun!
Good things come in 2's?
Joanne, Stephanie and Jochebed doing their stuff.
Our MC briefing the kids.
The balloon-team getting their gear ready.
And the fun began!
Boys were divided into teams for the football competition.
Coach Mahesh: Hari ini strategi kami adalah untuk makan ais krim!
Coach Kerry: Jangan pandang mak-we sambil main bola tau!
Fuiyoh! Girls playing football! Way to go!
Alamak! Collision on the field!
Thank God we had Dr Stephen on-call :)
Most girls went for gymnastics/dance.
We had a few younger boys too!
Colourful ribbons in action!
Coach SinYee: Luruskan tangan tu, nanti terbelit kang...
Coach Tammy: .... (limited Malay :P)
Whee! This is so fun!
Guitar workshop was the only programme under a shed.
They were cranking up under the canopy...
Some kids were pretty serious on learning to be a rockstar!
Guitar teachers: Tekan sini sini sana sini.
While all the fun was going on, volunteers served their parents :-
By baby-sitting younger children who weren't old enough to join the programmes!
Nanny Gaby: Babies love me cos I'm comfy :)
Kids saw the Media team at work and asked:
"Teacher, camera tu untuk TV ke? Yang tu 8tv punya ke?"
Josh: Kami dari Channel 6 KC TV...
Kids: *scratches head* ???

I have to say that it was a privilege to be part of this successful outreach.
Well done people! I am already looking forward to see the kids at Angsana for Project Fireflies :)
PS: The Project Fireflies centre is open every Wednesday and Friday for kids from unfortunate /underprivileged families to come for English and Maths tuition, do their homework, learn arts and crafts, play games and just hang out. Drop-by Angsana flats Block H 1st unit on the left corner if you like :D I am sure the kids will be happy to meet you.
