On The Way to The Real World

Adeline's Note: Dear all, the message below and the caption of pictures are from Elder Tan, if my comments appear on this blog, it will be in pink like so :)

Dear all,

Elder Tan - Elder Bradley (Sibu, Sarawak)
Elder Kong - Elder Howell (Singapore)
Elder Chong - Elder Valentina (Miri, Sarawak)
Elder Loke - Elder Koay (Sibu Jaya, Sarawak)
Elder Lau (Hong Kong)

These are all the Malaysians elders that are serving in their respective areas. We all got to our own respective area on the 21st September 2012. My flight was from Singapore to Kuching and then from Kuching to Sibu. This is my first time coming to Sarawak and I personally Sarawak is so different with Kuala Lumpur because Sarawak has more trees. In other words, more oxygen! Haha.
Anyway on the first day in Singapore which is on 20th September 2012, we met with our companion in the airport and have the opportunity to learn from our companion how to talk to people on the street. All 8 elders went into the MRT to get to Newton where the church is located. Elder Bradley and I get to talk to an Italian and we kinda talk for awhile. Then the Italian guy asked me how old am I. I said, I am officially 20 years old today. Then he move his face close to me and touched my both cheek with his jaw and said that is how people wish people in Italy. Total nightmare on my birthday. His beard was basically poking my cheek. Grrr.
But Singapore is still an awesome country to stay in. You can see people walking alone at nighttime so I assume Singapore is a safe country. All the elders in Sarawak will be going to Singapore again on 11 October 2012 for training including me.
