Members of the RA SS20 Central attended the Karnival Borneo - a Mesra Rakyat program organised by ADUN Damansara Utama at the Dewan Serbaguna Damansara Utama on 20 May 2017.We were entertained to a potpourri of cultural and musical performances from Borneo. And the sampling of a variety of food from Sabah and Sarawak.
RA SS20 Central Zone successfully organised its first Art & Craft Class cum Coffee Morning Potluck. Food was aplenty, contributed by members (roti jala with curry chicken, fried meehoon, pulut inti kelapa, varieties of kuih nonya and boiled eggs, etc). The 3-R recycling concept (Reuse, Reduce and Recycle) was put into practice. Everyone brought along their own food and drink utensils for the morning breakfast. For the Art & Craft Class, the ladies (and some men) joined in the making of bags from old T-Shirts. So nice to see them showing off their wonderful handicraft. The next Art & Craft Class will be the making of bags from old jeans.
There was also a side-demo on planting of herbs using discarded plastic bottles. The RA will be pursuing this "urban / vertical gardening" project this year. Thank you to our Councillor, Cik Jamaliah Jamaluddin and our neighbourhood police, Sgt Mat Din and the MPV team for dropping over to show their support for our activity.
