Trip to Penang (26-28 September 2008)

>> Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Date: 26 - 28 September 2008
Place: Penang
Occasion: TRAC MYF Northern District Elections - This elections is for the northern district's English-speaking Methodist churches' youths. I'm part of the national-level committee, so 3 of us from the committee went up to Penang to conduct the elections, get to know the youths, as well as eat! (oh yeah, Chris, Lawrence, & I will always be excited when it comes to food :P Only Samantha is 'tamer' when it comes to meal times...hahaha)
Overall comment: We had a lot of fun together with the youths in the northern district (Penang & Kedah)! We ate all we could & spent as much time catching up as we could too! We rarely get to gather like this with Lawrence, so it was like really precious time together!

Here are some photos taken during our Penang trip. More photos will be shared soon!
p/s: The photos have been resized by Chris, so it's slightly smaller than the usual size I upload on this blog :) Thanks, Chris!

1st Night
When we arrived in Penang, we were told to head straight to a house in Tanjung Bungah. One group of church members were gathering there for fellowship, so we joined them :) Thanks to this group of people, we had our accomodation sponsored! They even cooked a sumptous supper for us!! YUMS!
