Hey, guuuuys! So it’s been almost a whole month since the last update. We’ve had some cool activities with the kids during that time. Expect this post to be photo-heavy!
On March 1st, we went crafty and dug through some of the old photos the kids took. Along with pictures cut out from magazines, they made collages to form letters for an Everyone Has Hope banner.
Sure, it may be ridiculously messy now, but the finished product is… fabulous. We promise!
Here it is - the finished product! HOW COOL IS THAT? AND SO FABULOUS.
The next Saturday, March 8th, we got into making DIY bracelets out of coloured strings. Alycia headed the event, showing us the few patterns that we could make. We also had two of the student-teachers along for the ride: Ms Britney and Ms Jessica.

Amy found two of the younger kids hanging outside the door, poking their heads into the room to watch. She immediately dragged them in, gave them strings, and taught them (really damn patiently, I gotta say) how to braid bracelets.
The bracelets were then made part of a sales event that was held recently in Taylor’s. The money generated from the sales are now part of the funds for the project.
On March 22nd, we took the kids to the Muzium Negara, or the National Museum, down in Kuala Lumpur. Four of us went (Claudia, Dhanya, Hamdi and Sandra) along with our cray cray Physics lecturer, Mr Fernando.
Emily and Molly with a white cockatoo, or known as burung kakak tua in Malay. (There’s a famous song about it that’s often sung to children here in Malaysia,)
Dhanya being fabulous with a parrot on her shoulder. ;)
Some cool exhibits that they managed to take pictures of. Those masks look really creepy though. Reminds me of one of those Noh masks.
Here’s a little group photo to wrap things up. We shall see you guys in the next update! <3
