Christmas Cheers with Myanmar Refugees and Rotary

A Community Project by RC Metro KL
We were ushered in by a very friendly and hospitable Myanmar teenager.

Timetable at the learning centre

The Myanmar kids would come here daily for their lessons conducted by volunteers.

Board games and books

More books.

Always the busiest place - the kitchen

The centre is located a few blocks away from Times Square

Showing Fai where she came from.

Sophia said that she travelled for 7 days in a car with her mother and 3 siblings from Yangon.

Sound system crew

Dancing to Feliz Navidad

Singing a catchy, traditional folksong

Fashion show

Fancy moves were included

After a comic routine by a clown that had the children in stitches, it was balloon sculpting time.

Games to win a packet of sweets and chocolates.
It was organised by the older kids at the centre

Yummy traditional Myanmar food

One of the Rotarians got his friend to demonstrate ice carving.

His tools

Starting with a chain saw to slice away slabs of ice and covering the audience in ice shavings.

Playing with the ice blocks that were sawn off

Ean made a friend

They decided throwing stones into drain was a better pastime than looking at a man hacking at a block of ice

Last few touches

The Master ice craver is keen to impart his knowledge and would be setting up an ice carving society in Malaysia.
