Rained out but still met for fellowship and makan

Most of us left our houses in the rain hoping that Desa Parkcity would be dry. However, it was still raining at 7am, our intended start time. We were there for a new member-meet-EXCO gathering. We were supposed to run 10km, followed by a picnic of tuna sandwiches, ang ku, butter cake, assorted kuih, bananas and apples. When the rain did not abate at 7.45am, we decided to adjourn to a food outlet at TESCO Bandar Manjalara for our breakfast, minus the run :(.  We brought all the food there but the club bought beverages from the food stall, so as not to be totally in breach of their "no outside food allowed" norm. It was a very good gathering place with plenty of free parking & only a short distance from Desa Parkcity.

President Wan Yew Leong welcomed the new members and thanked a few of them for already volunteering in some club events. In fact, Shook Fun, Li Leen and Johnson, who only joined last year are already committee members. 

EXCO Sunny Lee took drink orders and even served the first batch. Well done!

After we finished breakfast, some couldn’t resist taking advantage of the much better weather. A group went to Desa Parkcity and another went to FRIM.

Many thanks to the EXCO for organising the event. Thanks also to Clara Bong (Yew Leong's wife) and Angie (my wife) for making the tuna sandwiches and butter cake respectively.
