Supported Living Program 1-4 Sept 2009 (Tue - Fri)

i) 4 Days 3 Nights Trip to Kota Kinabalu

A trip organised by us to experience the joy of traveling and going for a holiday. It was a new experience for 2 individuals who never had been traveling by an aeroplane before. It was also a challenge for us and AirAsia staff to manage disability in their airlines. But with combine experiences and determination, we manage to corporate very well together. It was raining at first but it settles down, then the clear blue skies makes the view from above looks so fantastic. We could see the buildings, forests and the great South China Sea.
We went to Tanjung Aru Beach for sight seeing and lunch. Embracing the sea breeze runs through the hair and indulging the sensation of the sand on your feet while the waves brushes it clean over and over again. This moment can easily be taken for granted by most of us, but 1 individual misses it the most because the last time he saw the beach was when he was a little child. That was an emotional moment for him and we could only imagine the priceless joy that this person was feeling inside. For this person, its just the simple little things matters the most, it may sound funny to us, but it mean so much to him.
We visited the Museum, Philipino Market, went shopping for handicrafts, t-shirts and had dinner with Cultural Dance Shows. This was our 1st Trip out of KL and by aeroplane. We must admit, there was hiccups here and there but that was a part of traveling anyways. What we can do is to learn and gain new experiences so we could do it better next time. We wonder where is our next trip going to be. Hmmm.....
