On 7th July, 5 of our trainees participated in the annual Art Competition organised by the Rotary Club of Bandar Utama held at SEGI University, KL. The theme for this year was PAINT YOUR LIFE. Lee Voon Tao, Sasthri Morgan, Nur Syahirah, Daniel Chu and Edwin Wong showcased their artistic talents to express their individuality and thoughts.

They say use shades of green for leaves,while shades of brown and yellow conjure up animals; I say mix black with everything and splash a little purple. - Lee Voon Tao

See there is magic in my masterpiece! - Lee Voon Tao

I am so proud I finished my masterpiece in less than 2 hours! Oh if only you knew how hard I worked to meet the target to finish on time!) you would agree when I say determination is rewarding! - Sasthri

“I did it!” Sasthri

Red, orange, yellow, green & blue – streaks and hues of bright colours – see how they sing and dance.

“I am so HAPPY!” Syahirah

Take it from our artist Daniel – Life without colour is unimaginable! After all, the world is a kaleidoscope of colours.

“Yeah! I finished it!” Daniel

Edwin confidently expressing his life in colour

Francissca Peter Setia (New Arrangement 2012)

I wonder how many remember the 10th anniversary thanksgiving dinner we had in 2008 celebrating the 10th year of Pusat Berdikari Seremban? In that event we had Francissca Peter sing to the guests and we all enjoyed the songs very much. The closing song was Setia which was very popular then as it sang of the need to be loyal and patriotic to a nation that is multi-racial, multi-religious and multi-cultural and to strive for the common prosperity of all. Frans re-sang this evergreen song last year with a slower tempo and picked up many pictures depicting the colorful and harmonious Malaysia we aspire to achieve. In this videoclip I am happy to note that she has chosen a photo of she with Poh Leong, one of our trainees who has gone out to work, taken during the dinner. This picture appear in the 1:32 frame.
