26th May 2011- 2nd June 2011
I am delighted to be one of the SIFE UTHM members who had been selected to join the Indonesia Outreach Programme (26th May 2011 to 1st June 2011). It is plausible to say that this programme is the most interesting and meaningful event that I ever had experienced since I stepped into tertiary education. We have been sharing our knowledge or information with our neighbor country; Indonesia’s friends about recycling, HIV &AIDS, water issues, nutrition and future planning apart from cultivating the interests of continuous learning in some poorer friends at Medan. It‘s a good thing to learn caution from the misfortunes of others, this makes me feel appreciative for what I own (have) now.
Well, the 1st photo is the tired looks of everyone during discussion of each night.

Before we headed back to Malaysia, we had gone to a relaxing place i.e. Lake Toba! The vicinity of it is very nice, tranquil surrounding and it's different compared to Medan city.

It's an amazing outreach programme that was organized by us. We, SIFE UTHM had spent a total of 2,500 working hours with a budget of RM 10,000 for this project.
I had learnt boundless knowledge by cooperating with the other Sifers such as how they remained being resilient when entangled with difficulties in running the programmes and the perseverance of everyone to make this programme a success. Furthermore, the teamwork had been showed by everyone as all efforts are consolidated in innovating new ideas or solutions to help each other especially those who face presentation problems in Yayasan Pendidikan Shafiyyatul Amaliyyah and Al-Alum. From this unprecedented programme, I am able to learn the culture of Medan; Indonesia such as their foods, languages and etcetera. Nevertheless, I have learnt from this programme i.e. we have many ambitious desires which are achievable in life and we should keep pursuing stoically and appreciate what we have right now because the starting point of all achievements is faith in self.
Last but not least, I am proud to be a Sifer!
The 3rd trip is with my dearest family which is to Singapore...
