Before I proceed, let me give a little introduction on the project as well as the place. Lembah Subang Flats is a low cost area for the poor. I dont know much about their background but from what I heard, the place serves as transitional homes to many who are still waiting for their low cost homes to be ready,which I dont know where and when. Some of the residents there are from the now demolished Kampung Damansara Dalam (KDD).

Stinky drains. Please forget the image after viewing this.

Even Mike Pilavachi, our speaker from Soul Survivor Church in Watford, England was there too!
But the other younger guys who came with him went to KAWAN instead.
Anyway, to cut the story short, we had a great time cleaning the place. I was in one of the teams that was assigned to paint one of the blocks.
Painting in Progress.
After the whole painting and gotong royong thing, we took a break and continued on with a mini carnival in the afternoon. The main activity was the futsal tournament, which was co-organised by Sports Planet.
Futsal for the boys
As for the rest who dont play futsal, we had booths for nail art, henna, tattoo, medical booth, as well as to distribute freebies. I heard it was such a hit among the people there that they actually caused a mini riot. I can imagine that. Freebies, who dont want?
The nail art, henna and tattoo were so popular that even boys queue for it.
Diana doing her thing. She's so good at it that if she were to open up a stall, she'll make lots of money out of it, believe me.
Julia the master of henna art. I was supposed to help her but I cant draw to save my life!

At the end of the day, this is the best shot one can ever get:
