What do you get when you have done something very special? What kind of reward should one receive from winning 2 meritorious awards at the inaugural PAYM Service Learning Festival 2009? Well, a simple pat on the back, a hug and a congratulation handshake is what most would receive. But, Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed went one step further and invited all SLC members for lunch at Velu's Family Restaurant, Eunos Community Club. YEC members also joined in the appreciation lunch session.
It was an afternoon of spice and sweat. Everyone was treated with servings of Indian food. There were dishes like fried fish and curry! But, all these delicious dishes were packed with a punch! They were all very spicy! Most students and YEC members were continuously asking for drink refills just to cool their body down!
After lunch, Mr Zainul and YEC Chairman Hock Rong both gave their speech before souvenirs were handed out to everyone present before a group photo was taken.
It was definitely an exciting afternoon and lunch filled with many ‘hot’ things!
