RDA 2008, Here We Come!...


Yippie!

The time is 2.42pm, and in less than 2 hours time, I would be at the Penang Turf Club with my friend Jiun Wei...




RDA Poster, with a lovely poem...




Yeap! RDA (Riding for the Disabled) 2008 starts today!


I am now in Jiun Wei's house (with excellent connection!), and we're positively looking forward to the another new season of RDA, with new kids, new parents, and new fun! With our old friend(s)-staff, and horses to make it complete...


Let's see...Do I have everything needed?







Boots...CHECKED!







Sunblock for face, body and lips...CHECKED!







Apples for the horses...CHECKED!







Friend (pic at left is Jiun Wei) to make the experience more enjoyable...CHECKED!





Looks like I'm all set then...=)


Ah, finally there is something for me to do that will be worthwhile...



*Bliss*

hi daphne,

I got to know your Blog from Ibu. Btw, I am from Ipoh too.. eeem.. Ipoh girl laa. My mom used to teach BM in Ave Maria for 14 years!!!

I read about Chee Keong. You have such a kind heart. Not only you.. but the whole family of yours. It is very noble of you to help those unlucky ones. Bravo!!!

Happy Belated Birthday.. and hope you enjoy the horse-riding trip!!

Hi Uncle B,

Oh, no, I don't get to ride at all...I only walk with the horses and accompany the kids...=) I get to hug the horses and feed them though, and get plenty of horsey-saliva all over me!

Hehe...As for ponies kicking, ouch! They're strong...Real strong...

Daphne Ling said...
