Upon entering the room, I could see the children were sitting in neat rows listening to Fimie Don’s talk about the different types of turtles found in Malaysia and what we can do to help save them from becoming extinct. Shortly after, we all did the turtle version of the chicken dance. Then, each child displayed his/her unique creativity through colouring in some paper turtles prepared by the Turtle Conservation Society of Malaysia.

Soon, it’s time for iftar. We were ushered into a ballroom next door, which had been nicely decorated – there were balloons everywhere! We all loved the balloons and the marvellous buffet spread. There was everything from northern flavours of Malaysia like ketupat palas, budu and mango kerabu to classics like lemang, ketupat with serunding and rendang, to children’s favourite like heart-shaped nuggets and spaghetti bolognese. My friends and I from the Turtle Conservation Society sat at a table with adorable children from the Rumah Kanak-kanak Angels, eating heaps of food, having fun with the balloons, and share some jokes and games. All in all, it had been an enjoyable meaningful evening.

With the girls from Angels: Wendy and Mimi.
