I've included a few pictures of the CNY greetings which were posted on Facebook and received in my email box.
|A huge resort complex awaits you with all the facilities |
for a perfect rejuvenation,
both for your emotional and professional health.
|View the setting sun and the glow of the twilight from the resort.|
Worth your conference fee just to view this.
|The long corridor leading to a spacious lobby. |
The whole place has a Malay village influence to it.
|The bedrooms are spacious and clean with a charming kampung feel. |
This is the Deluxe Room.
|A fantastic view of the sea and Pangkor Island from the dining area. |
Watch the sunset from here.
The resort has a commanding view as it is situated on a high hillside.
|Spacious and comfortable ballroom as main plenary location but |
you have to walk up and down some flight of stairs from your room.
Don't worry. The resort provides buggy service if you live on the hillside chalets.
|After the North-South Expressway, you still have about |
21/2 hrs travel through scenic paddy fields and villages
before reaching Damai Laut.
|President Abraham Lincoln writing to his wife. |
Correspondence styles have changed since 1860, when
Abraham Lincoln addressed this letter to
Mary Todd Lincoln 'Dear Wife.'
|All smiles: Pei Yun celebrating as she is recognised for being the top O-level student in Singapore.|
|Note that this poem is NOT a romantic poem but it is a poem about poets and writers being social activists.|
|Standing by the Eagle which aided man's landing on the Moon. The 4 wheel Rover is just beside the Eagle. Awesome!|
|I'm standing right underneath an actual Saturn V rocket engine that took man to the Moon and back. Look at the size of the most powerful machine ever built by man at that time.|
|Posing in my Flight Suit in front of the Space Shuttle cockpit model.|
|Assigned as the Head of the whole space mission based in the Command Flight Centre.|
|Being securely strapped to the Multi Axis Trainer by the facilitator. I had to remove my glasses and everything from my pockets to avoid my stuff from flying all over the place!|
|Building toys that were tested before in micro gravity (outer space).|
|My complete model rocket before the actual launching outdoors.|
|The Zip-line tower where we were attached to a zip-line and splashing into the shallow pond. We were also dunked into the water in that drum like carriage on the bottom left of the picture and later rescued in a basket to simulate a helicopter rescue. That's a Huey helicopter perched on top of the tower.|
|A very interesting quote to inspire boys. I remembered our Melaka State Education Department having a programme a few years ago to toughen up the boys in schools! We share the same aspiration!|
|The Dunking Machine where we were slowly lowered into the water almost to our neck and we had to swim out to a safe area for rescue.|
|In the Science research lab of the International Space Station simulator. Posing with a Filipino and an American teachers.|
|Ed Buckbee giving an interesting talk on the Real Space Cowboys -- the very first astronauts chosen for the early space programme. He recounted the Space Race with the Russians and development of the Space Shuttle. One of the stories that caught my attention was about the special treatment received by the monkey that was sent into space.|
|Trying to create the illusion that I was holding up the Saturn V rocket.|
|Group photo of Team KIBO during the final night dinner and dance.|
|The band named Alley Cats providing live music while teachers dance the night away! Noticed the Eagle space vehicle behind the band? We had a great "let your hair down" fun time!|
