INVITATION TO A FUND RAISING EVENT IN IPOH

Last Saturday morning, we attended a fund-raising event where my friend was helping out. My friend had bought quite a number of coupon booklets and she invited us to attend and she also gave us some coupon booklets for this event. Just in case I might forget, she even send a message one day earlier to remind me to attend the event.

We reached the place at about 8.30 am, all the while thinking we were early. But we were surprised that others were already there before us and we had to park our car quite a distance away.

The first stall that greeted us was a satay stall. We first took a walk round the place to look at all the stalls. On the second round, hubby went to buy the satay.
While hubby was at the satay stall, I passed by this stall full of flowers. I just need to snap a photo of these fresh flowers.

I saw a stall selling vegetable acar and I bought a packet. I was told that this acar was ordered from the Pasir Puteh market and it was very delicious. A couple sharing the same table with us also bought this vegetable acar. They complained it was very spicy but admitted it was very delicious.

BBQ Chicken (satay chicken) with cucumber cubes and big onion wedges.

Spicy peanut sauce (satay sauce) to eat with satay chicken.

Bought 2 pieces of fried chicken wings from my friend's stall to try. It was very tasty and later went back to buy 8 more pieces to take home for lunch.

I saw someone eating nasi lemak and I went looking for the stall. This was the nasi lemak that I found and bought. It had enough of sambal and the fried anchovies very crispy. All the above food were our breakfast for hubby and I. After breakfast, we went another round to snap photos.

This was the place we sat and ate our breakfast. The organizer and team had prepared a very comfortable place for us to have our food.

The place with the yellow and green balloon was the games corner.

I supposed these must be the prizes for the winners of the games.

Over here were the snacks, dried foodstuffs, breads and cakes stalls.

Very creative and beautiful handcrafts for sale.

Pillows, boosters, floor rugs, etc. for sale.

Scarfs, handkerchiefs, sarongs, etc. for sale.

We were invited to have a simple free medical checkup. First, we had to sign up, our heights were then taken and then measurement of our body mass index. Next was the needle prick to test for blood glucose. I never, never liked needles!
Lastly, testing of blood pressure, so far, so good, thank God for good health.

Finally, on the way out we stopped at our friend's stall to buy a type of home made jelly called Guilingao with the remaining coupons. Oops!!! Forgot to take photos of the Guilingao! So very sorry, no photos of herbal jelly. After tasting the home made herbal jelly, I think I am going to ask my friend's hubby to teach me how to make the herbal jelly.

And I want to say a big "Thank you" to my friend for inviting us to this event.

Do not be wise in your own eyes:

fear the LORD and shun evil.

This will bring health to your body

and nourishment to your bones.

(Proverbs 3:7-8, New International Version-NIV)
