Adidas Outing to KLCC Aquaria with Children of HOPE worldwide KL
10 Sept 2011 - Adidas Outing to KLCC Aquaria with Children of HOPEww
It was an exciting and memorable trip for the underprivileged children of HOPE worldwide KL!
Thanks to Adidas for your thoughtfulness and generosity for hosting this trip to KLCC Aquaria (last year, Adidas brought the children to Planetarium - http://darickwong.blogspot.com/2010/11/hope-worldwide-adidas-sentul-children.html)
Although it was a gloomy morning with raindrops dripping down from the sky, indeed, it never put down the excitement deep down inside the children's heart - they were all waiting to see big sharks and turtles =)
Their dreams came true as the buses approaching the entrance of Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. We were all warmly greeted by the volunteers from Adidas. As soon as we sorted out the tickets for entries, the children who were in different groups, led by the Adidas volunteers, to enter the KLCC Aquaria.
The event came to it's climax when the feeding session took place by then! Two experienced divers appeared in a big aquarium which is full of different kinds of fishes. As soon as the divers dived in to the water, school of fishes surrounding them, as it's time for food (for the fishes)!
It was truly a mesmerizing scene, to able to see huge sea turtles and as well as stingray in such a close distance! As time flies, the 2o minutes feeding session ended within a finger tip. What's next? We were so grateful to have Adidas to host the underprivileged children a buffet lunch at Traders Hotel.
The Adidas volunteers were like more than a friend to the children. They took good care of them, help them with the food at the buffet line, and as well a fruitful fellowship time, which indeed helped to know each other better.
Some of the Adidas volunteers even bought some gifts from the KLCC Aquaria gifts shop before proceeding to lunch.
Deep down from our hearts, we can't thank Adidas enough, for you the joyous moments and wonderful memories you had brought the underprivileged children.
