A Night At the Theater

Yesterday was our first day in the Penang State Assembly, second sitting this year. Due to time constraint, I didn’t have the chance to answer my one and only oral question this session. Looking forward to my wrap up speech, which I am not cracking my head to prepare…

Anyway, I managed to steal some time from the break of the proceeding to go back to KOMTAR to host a group of very beautiful and excellent dancers from Planet Dance, Australia for lunch. They are here to perform at a charity concert organized by Priscilla Ballet Academy this weekend (15th Nov @ 7.30pm) at the Dewan Sri Pinang.

The concert titled “A Night At the Theatre” is endorsed by my Women, Family and Community Development Committee and is in aid of charitable organizations such as The Little Sisters of the Poor, Shalom House, Asia Community Service and Soroptimist International Penang.

I heard tickets have been sold out, but they are still short of funds for the charity. Pls you all good people out there, call them to contribute:

A Night At the Theatre – Charity Concert
c/o Judy Chan, MECI, 1416 Lorong Perusahaan 2
13600 Perai, Penang
Tel 04 3907753
Fax 04 3908419
Email charityconcert08@gmail.com

Anyway, the boys and girls from Australia enjoyed themselves very much with the bird eye view of Georgetown from the top of KOMTAR. I notice their apprehension at our asian food though, maybe they are not too used to it. Sorry folks, thought you wanted to try something new. : )

I will be attending the excellent concert (saw the preview! it was GREAT!) this Saturday with my family. Hope to see you there as well…

    Rocket kids? Is that something to promote Penang?

    I’m disappointed. It is as if you brought them in to help DAP make a promotion. =\

    Dear ylwong,
    The children from Australia came to perform here in Pg without any payment from the State or the local organizing committee. The rocket kids were paid for from YB Lydia’s own pockets as a personal gifts to the young visitors. It was their wish to have it taken photograph because the dolls were adorable
