Today was a day when we started off at the homes. The people over there were more open to us today. We made friendship barcelets and they were very good at making it. We only did simple ones but they made complex ones that took up alot of time and they were very good at it 👍. Next we played with the balloons and Angel keeps stabbing the blown up ballons with the pump and was dressed up in balloons. We waved a sad goodbye to them :( .  We then went to the limestone cave and took alot of pics. Next up, we went to the pomelo farm. The person told us that the white fruit was the sweet one and the red fruit was the sweet and sour one. I bought the sweet one for my parents and bought a souvenir for my friend. Next the teachers were comparing the rooms to see which was the neatest. We went in to Daniel John and Jacobs rm cuz they open da door n didnt care bout wut was happening. Then we went for supper at Old town White Coffee and Sherlyn, Hannah Kairina, Jacob, Jerrick and I were sitting at a table and we made the most noise compared to the rest of the 11 ppl. It was so funny there 😁.

Today we were very sleepy and Ms Looi had to come and wake us up. I honestly did not want to leave Ipoh but what choice did I have? In the bus we had a snack partay and munched on a lot. At the end of the day we were all very tired. I was very sad cause JDLS had finally come to an end. Along with all the life lessons it had taught me (to appreciate the simpleat things in life) I also had a lot of fun. Im definitely going to hold all the memories of this trip with me. If i had another chance I would definitely visit Ipoh again...

Today first thing we went to the homes. Many things had changed. Some of the older girls opened up to us more easily and the younger ones were happier because we brought more hula hoops for them. Instead of doing what we wanted we did what the girls wanted. We made friendship bands with rainbow looms and simple threads. Then we also played badminton. I felt very touched at the end of the day when they specially came to the gate to say goodbye to us. After that we got some time to change and then went to the limestone caves. Honestly the walls looked like ancient marble cake XD There was also a beautiful garden where we took lots of pics and did the CHINA DAB 😊 We then went to the pomelo farm to buy pomelos and some souvenirs. Soon the day ended and during the reflection session we sang We are lasallian for Mr Isaac which was honestly a lot of fun. We also reflected on what we had done during the day and we also taught Mr Isaac how to do the China Dab :) For supper we went to Old Town Cafe and stuffed ourselves with nuggets, fries and garlic bread... I think the day ended well as I learnt to be a better servant leader. But i kind of dread tommorows loooong journey and plus i feel sad since we are leaving ipoh 😢

I enjoyed my trip to Ipoh, thanks to my friends there. I made good memories with all of them. This trip to ipoh felt different as through this trip I really learnt and understand more on how to be a better servant leader. I also learnt to learn to be more independent and thankful towards the privileges that I have.

Today was the last day we will be at the homes, I felt really sad when we were about to leave the homes . Compared to the first day we arrived at the home they were more reserved and shy but soon they opened up to us and I felt really comfortable talking to them ,especially the kindergarten kids. So I felt sad knowing that I might be not be able to meet them again.

The trip I had was really different because I would be overcoming challenges but this time I saw how people overcome their own problems. The orphans always enjoy and is engaged in whatever we do, they would try to play with us no matter what and they would try to stay optimistic no matter what. They are great full of what they have and not take things for granted. I believe we should learn from them. I will never forget the experience I’ve gotten.

Yours sincerely
Daniel Zawro Tun

I'm going to miss Ipoh. I had a lot of fun with my friends and learnt a lot in this trip. I think this was a beneficial trip and it helped me in becoming a more mindful servant leader. I think that on this trip, and going to the orphanages sparked something inside of me and I want to go and help out in society.
I think this was a successful trip and hopefully for the next ten years will JDLS continue!

Today, we started the day learning about St John Baptist De La Salle. We learnt about the hardships in his life and the inspiration to reach out to the lost, the lost and the least. Mr Isaac really helped us in understanding more about our Founder's life.
After lunch, we visited he orphanages. Yesterday, when we went over tried to play with them, they were hard to control. We thought of a different approach today and we did not bring any material (balls and Frisbee) with us. We let them play what they wanted to play. Because of this change, the children were less rowdy. I played Carom with the boys and I found out that they were really good. Soon, we had to leave. I was a bit sad as I really liked the boys and their enthusiasm.
We went to the Limestone cave after that. It was very breezy and wet(don't know why). The scenery was very beautiful and it was all created by Mother Nature. We were allowed to feed the fishes and turtles.
We went to the pomelo farm. We learnt about the pomelo fruit and after that we were allowed to buy souvenirs and pomelos.
In the night, during the debrief, Mr Isaac asked some questions about the trip and what we did differently during the orphanage visit. After a deep reflection, we went to sleep.
