Time to Play... ULTIMATE FRISBEE!!!

Salam (peace) folks!!!

Got nothing to do this weekend? Well, come down to Kepong and join YMP in a fun-filled game of Ultimate Frisbee!!!

Ultimate Frisbee is a limited-contact team sport played with a standard flying disc, commonly known as a frisbee. The object of the game is to score points by passing the disc to a player in the opposing end zone, similar to an end zone in American football or rugby. Players may not run while holding the disc. Check out these links:
How to get to Taman Metropolitan? If you are driving from Petaling Jaya, head for the LDP (Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong) towards Kepong. You will pass by 1 Utama and Mutiara Damansara. Continue driving towards the direction of Genting Highlands/Batu Caves and you will reach a toll plaza. Pay the RM1.60 toll and go up the ramp towards MRR2.

Go straight all the way and make a U turn at a roundabout as you exit the highway. Go straight after that and look for the signboard "Taman Metroplitan" before turning into the park. You will encounter a signboard "Kawasan Permainan Layang-Layang" before the park. Layang-layang is the Malay language for kites.

Too chicken to play Ultimate Frisbee but still wanna have fun? No worries! The kite rentals are always available!

There's a lot of running so wear comfortable clothing & shoes. Refreshments will be provided. See ya there!!!

Open House at Titian Kaseh

Assalamualaikum everyone!

On 4 October 2009, YMP held an open house together with the children at the Titian Kaseh Orphange in Kuala Lumpur. We had such a fulfilling afternoon with them! It was so enjoyable to see the kids laughing, buzzing with excitement, climbing and jumping over all of us. They clearly had a jolly good time, Alhamdulillah.

The open house started at 12.30 with a round of introductions. MashaAllah, their enthusiasm was just so contagious! The children got excited just by counting numbers! So when it came time to give out balloons, streamers, and ribbons to decorate, the atmosphere was one of chaotic excitement to say the least.

We then took a break after 1.30 for prayers followed by lunch, which in itself was a spectacle. We had Lamb and 'mandi' rice, which is basically the lamb and rice cooked together in all it's juicy goodness! :-) And of course the Raya spread; satay, rendang, ketupat, and potato salad. The food was glorious, MashaAllah.

After everyone settled down, we played Pass the Parcel. The younger kids participated in the activities. The older ones (15 yrs old onwards) were naturally too 'cool' to play so they stayed inside the house. Everytime the parcel stopped, someone had to answer a question or do a challenge/ dare/ silly dance. One of the children volunteered our very own Abang Amin to walk like a duck, and meow like a cat. Lovely!

For the finale, the children gathered and gave a Dikir Barat performance for us. It was the highlight of the day! Even Abang Zuhri joined in!

At the end of this, we all came back feeling very warm inside. Zul and Zuhri would've probably had to adopt a few kids had they stayed longer, coz the children just love them!

YMP would like to give a special thank you to the sponsors and donators for making this event possible. Without which, it would've been difficult to organize. Alhamdulillah.

Now on to the next one! :-D
