Faith, Friendship, Freedom..

47 youths from Holy Family Kajang made their way to HFC at around 4.30 pm on the evening of 22nd of October not knowing what they are about to undergo for that 3 days stay there in PD.  As the bus reached Champagnat Youth Center in Port Dickson, everyone's expression was...

"why the grass so unkept wan"
"its like we're going back into the 1950's"
"we going through some sawah padi izzit"
"omg! we're gonna stay here ah?"
" looks like a haunted mansion!"

and so on... i had the same thought as the rest and wasn't really excited with the thought that there'll only be 1 toilet in the girls dorm.. ONE okay.. but then i found out there was six more beside the guy's dorm.. God does miracles doesnt he? so yeah, had our dinner and our first session then we went to bed..

Day 2 - Its always the best day out of the 3 days. Why? first, we had amazing sessions with an amazing speaker, Martin Jalleh. second, we had really good food all day.. third, our praise and worship group rocks! fourth, the games team and the committee did an amazing job and we were all happily rolling around in sand, flour and sea water of course! fifth, the inner healing session made us open our eyes and learn to appreciate the people around us more esp our parents. sixth, we got to know a whole lot of people a lot more better. seventh, we could write letters of affirmation to others to make them feel good about themselves. eigth, the last nights of the camps are always the best too. ninth, eat! eat! and EAT! lastly, getting scolded by papa Martin to go to bed.. =)

Day 3 - another beautiful day with everyone around us.. we learnt how to appreciate our friends, family and most of all our RELIGION.. nothing is more fun in the world than being a Catholic and i thank God so much for being born and raised a Catholic, and i am proud to be one.. as the time to leave drew near, we laughed and cried at all the good times we had together there with a whole new experience to bring home.. the place we stayed at may be a run down, old, shabby looking place, but who cares as long as you have the people you love around you? and i quote my angel, Sandy, "it doesnt matter about the place, its not everyday you get to wake up and see the beach in front of you" AMEN!

here are some of the notes people wrote to me.. I LOVE YA'LL..!! Thank you very very much!!! I even got a new nickname.. "SNOOZE!" haha.. =)
