Ride around the island

PK and President Choong took us for a ride around the island. On the back side it is more rural and very beautiful. There is a nutmeg factory and they show you around the factory and explain all about nutmeg. When we arrived we found a small house with a covered area and a lady who explained it. It was very interesting to learn about nutmeg.



Almost like home but oh so hot and humid!!

Zone meeeting

We have zone meeting once a month and it is usually in Ipoh. Sister Chris likes to feed the missionaries so she organizes a meal each time. The food is very good and there is always plenty but the missionaries love to eat.

eggs

They love eggs here. They have many ways to prepare them. Century eggs take 100 days to prepare, they were soaked in horse urine in the past but now they are soaked in chemicals. They look terrible but do not taste too bad (almost good). The herbal eggs are soaked in soy sauce and are quite good.
We have FHE in our home for the singles in the branch every Monday night
