" Eh, why don't you fall down and i'll take a picture of you!"
The island looked "Paradise-y" from far, but after the hard climb.. turned out to be rather botak. *as in no tree's lah*. Then we went to the pool. They had this kids club there. Rather tempting. I realise that i don't use full sentences in my blog. Ah heck, as long as i understand me lah. Owh and there was also this mini jacuzzi which was filled with kids. I guess they were attracted to the bubbles la. Says Joel:
"DO you think those are really bubbles, or the kids are all just farting at once?"
Then we all got cleaned up and went for the night service at Tabernacle of Praise. The worship there is one of the most entertaining worship sessions i have ever been to. The worship leader , who take in mind is 40++++, memang semangat giler. Matt named him Rod Steward- nuff' said. Julie Khoo preached. As always- she was greatamazingsupercrazyfunnyloudWOOT!. We had this group prayer thing after the sermon- the 2 invited teams- then we had a group photo for TOP's newsletter*chehwah*After the great service we went for supper at MCcallister Road since we skipped dinner to hang at the beach. Was crazy late by the time we reached and 70% of the shops were closed. Was in the mood for the egg with fried lala thing but the shop selling it was out of lala so the vendor suggested prawns. There was this sign put up by the vendor stating the prices and the prawns were priced at RM8,12,16.
Joel "Eh. Sabrina, i think the prawns are pricey lah"
Me "OMG ya! They are 8thousand 12 hundred and 16 ringgit"
Yes, i have my blond moments in Penang as well. The Joel went on a laughing spree after coming to this shop. See--
Joel explains " Its like their making fun of themselves"
says Extremely nice Sue Li "Maybe the vendors name is Wimpy lah!"
Got back to the hotel really late. Had a short practice at the ballroom only to be sounded by the ballroom-guy-dude. Then adjourned to the guys room for briefing for the next day.Owh Btw, at the lift waiting area of the floor we were staying in, there was this BIG BIG mirror that we all took HUGE ADVANTAGE OF on both days Woke up the next day at 6.40am. All of us were lack of sleep but God provided all the way. Had breakfast and loads of coffee. Sue Li accompanied me for a morning stroll along the beach where we debated on the sea water level and crabs *being the animal*. The view was heavenly. Then we went to the ballroom to have a sound check and another practice. Had loads of mini chit-chat sessions with the TOP's ppl. The song leader of the day before came up to Joel and I.
"Eh, I saw the 2 of you laughing at me yesterday ah"
aiyo, we tensed up and gave him an ultra lame come back. BTw, the church took VERY good care of us. They fed us like hungry pigs- Janna missed out on all the food *oops i mean fun. So the service started with a spontaneous warm up session. Then there was the EVER famous Banana Dance. I mean if you don't know the Banana Dance, you must have been sleeping under a rock for the past ten years. The we hit straight to worship. 8 songs in a row- UNBELIEVABLE. By the 2nd song i was crazy tired, but then again God provided.It felt great doing something for Him. There was a sense of accomplishment. A very hard to express feeling. It felt great. I would not mind doing it all over again. The kids were awesome. Total sweethearts.
Then Aunt Juliet gave the word. Very different style of approach. But, it's the word lah! We took the opportunity to snap some shots. There was this time where Aunt Juliet put up a poster of this men dressed up in like old time clothes who was supposed to be Jesus and she asked the kids "Who is this?" and there was this boy that answered
"PETERPAN!!!"And the GAMES! WAHAHAHAHAHAAH. I LOVE GAMES. The kids LOVED the games. It was like soooo crazy fun. We got the kids running around.And well- that's all they really did lah. But fun and tiring. It sucked all energy from us. We needed to refuel with jelly and coke after that.
Then check out and went for lunch with the church ppl. I like penang food. There is this 'hawkerness to it.
All in all, a great trip la. The whole team was greatly blessed.Nah bagi you random pics. Enjoy.
