Marriage is a lifelong commitment

2. 6.2007 was one of the most important moments in teacher Pei En's life. It was a lovely day to remember. We attended her wedding ceremony at Jelutong Chinese Methodist Church.
Teacher Pei En looked pretty in her bridal gown. The bride took the first step. When the bridegroom drew the bride towards him by the hand, both of you smiled sweetly.
Lydia and Priscilla, when you stand and say your wedding vows, you are making a commitment to God, to yourself, and to your spouse. Marriage is a partnership which lasts for life between one man and one woman. The foundation of marriage is love.Marriage is a lifelong commitment. A companionship, where there is real giving and receiving, helping and being helped, caring and being cared for.
After church wedding ceremony, we had wedding lunch at Chinese Recreation Club (CRC).

Teacher Pei En dressed up in a gown. The gown was beautiful and suited her perfect. Mom actually liked the gown she picked.We were enjoying all the images of teacher's Pei En special day. Teacher Pei En definitely will not forget this special day. It was one of the most memorable moments of her.

We wish her many enjoyable days of her married life.

A visit to Kedah Paddy Museum

If you are in the vicinity of the northern states, do drop by this museum.The museum is next to the limestone hill call Gunung Keriang. The Kedah Paddy Museum is not just an ordinary museum which display some historical stuff.
The main attraction here is all about art paintings. Paintings which is framed and hang onto the wall.
A large scale artworks which impressive to everyone who visits the museum.
The unique architecture of the Museum represents harvested rice stalks and rice motifs are seen throughout the building.
The entrance to the museum is free but one need to buy tickets to the revolving tower. Cost is only RM3 for adult, RM1 for children and RM2 for the camera.
We went there for a visit with Hui Qing and Xin Yi on 18.10.2008.
We went up a dark cave-like ‘tunnel’ to the top floor of the building. It was dark and the surrounding was made in a way which looked exactly like a cave. Just after a couple of minutes of stair climbing, we reached to the top of the doom. The floor revolves and there are 3-D pictures of the sceneries.
I must say that this is an interesting feature because the drawings are really like real life with life size objects and humans. It's drawn by two North Korea artist.
Girls, this is where we could view the Kedah outer area in 360 degrees from a high rise area. The entire scenic view could actually remain unchange all the time.
The entire center doom of the museum consist of a rotating platform which you could just sit down and view the landscape scenic while the platform will rotate in circular motion slowly. What a great idea.
We went down to the exhibition hall to explore some history about the State of the Rice Bowl of Malaysia.
A beautiful sunset view from a paddy field.
Dad and mom really liked the paintings. One the lower floor of the museum is where you find the items being exhibited.
We never realize that there are so many types of paddy.
It is mainly displaying those conventional tools and items used in paddy field in the past.
We learned all about paddy growing and harvesting.

We also could see directly the technical of farmers.
Girls, when you go to gaol, you learn to get more in touch with yourselves.My girls, today's everything has change with advance in technology and you hardly sees people using buffalo in paddy field anymore. Malaysian paddy farmers have today practically fully mechanized their field work.
There was a lot of pressure from paddy farmers. Our government must respect the will of farmers.

Vegetables, fruit, our daily food, - all things were made by God for us. Along with rice, it is food for the common people. It is food for all people. Let us be thankful we have food in abundance.

An enjoyable telematch day

The afternoon under a little shade, sunday school children played telematch together. Telematch is where we played various games.Exciting games were played at every station. All were excited with anticipation to start the the games.
The event was held in the Christion Convension Centre on 8.7.2006.
The theme of the camp was Gather Us In Thou Love.

The games were organised and planned by teacher Xiang Liang. Teacher Pin Ling was the song leader. She is a very gifted teacher.Good learning would require an organized and pleasant atmosphere and that requires good planning on the part of the teacher. Teacher Pin Ling is a good teacher with a good program.

Both of you liked shootout and enjoyed the games.Shoot this little rocket and try to hit the targets. Your goal is to shoot as many cans as possible.
Girls, stepped forward and kicked, reached out and kicked the ball strongly towards the goal.
Each team tried to get the ball to their goal and, overall, all the children did a decent job.
To hit the target, children threw the ball as hard as the could.

What an enjoyable time it was for everyone!
Well done to all the telematch teams. Great effort was being witness.

Lydia and Priscilla, the highlight of the day were the telematches where teams not only have to put their skills against other teams.

They had also learn how to cooperate with their own team members.
Girls, enjoyed the telematch and the teamwork games where we had the opportunity to interact with others.
We are one in the bond of love. Let us love one another; for love is of God, and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

A visit to the Fisheries Research Institute and Aquarium

The Fisheries Research Institute and Aquarium is located in Batu Maung, opposite the Batu Maung post office.A lot of people including the Penangites don't really know there is a small aquarium located in Batu Maung.
Even though the aquarium is small, if you live in Penang and like aquatic life, you could probably pay a visit to this place. It has quite a number of fish tanks and there are actually quite a lot of species of fish and you will notice some very weird sea creatures.
Four of our full-day students, Lydia and Priscilla joined the half day trip. It was our second visit. This was an exciting opportunity for students to visit and learn on 7.12.2008.
We could see and experience the underwater world as we walk around looking at each tank.
The aquarium is also a fun place for children as the aquarium is designed to educate children through interactive exhibitions.
The last tank, which measures approximately 15ft by 10ft and situated in a room which also doubles as an auditorium. We sat on a comfortable chair to look for the displays.
Two large ponds are home to a large school of sprightly koi or carps and patin (a type of catfish).
Six of you fed the greedy koi with fish food that can be purchased for RM1 from the souvenir shop.

After that, we went to Taman Metropolitan Relau for an exercise. It is located at the foothill. Just a stone throw from Taman Desa Relau.The garden is decorated with beautiful fountains.
Landscape garden with playground and exercise facilities.
Dad and mom tried to give our students aopportunity to move and play.
We hope it makes them smarter as a bonus.
While many kids play by sitting in front of a computer, what they really need is physical play. Exercise is beneficial to both body and mind.
We walked and enjoyed lots of physical activity.Overall, it was quite an informative trip for us.
Lydia and Priscilla, dad and mom hope that both of you can develop an interest in marine life. Take some exercise outdoors and get a great workout at the park.
