Silat practice...

On Thursday, the 22nd of October, I was approached by Kak Zainon PCO to help with the performance for Edufair on the 31st of October. See I told you, these PCO people really love to do their job in the last minute. I'm sure they knew about any project weeks if not months from the date itself, but they evidently think that Petronita's the worker of magic... and we'll always come up with whatever they need...sigh

Within a day, I managed to get hold of Kak Liza to train the kids for zapin and Ustaz Yaacob to train the silat boys... Not enough with those two, Kak Zainon also asked for kompang...sigh. Sometimes I couldn't believe the audacity of some people. So, I told her if you need my help, you need to pay for the instructors and also the participants. At first she was quite reluctant but I finally managed to convince her.

Can you imagine, they asked for our help but was reluctant to pay?!! I didn't ask anything for myself, just for the kids who had to practice everyday. They agreed to pay sdg 1 per day. Sdg 1, ok?!! Just enough for 1 drink a day...sigh. That's one of the things I don't like working for PCO, they 'pressed for your sweat and blood' and unwilling to pay for it.

Anyway, Kak Liza supervised the zapin kids while I supervise the silat practices. Sometimes even using my own money to buy them drinks. Pity the kids, practicing under the hot sun. Enjoy these pictures (taken one the second day of practice).

Having fun...
