After the meeting, we went to shop for decorations, stationeries, puzzles and things that we need to use on Family Day. Our 1st stop was at Wong Yung Kee Hypermarket, we went to the 4th floor and bought our stuffs. Then we hit for the next target, the bank. When we arrived, it was full so we waited for our turn for 15 minutes before banking in all the money from "A Cent a Day" donation. After that we went for our lunch at KFC then we started shopping again at Giant Hypermarket to buy the stuffs which we couldn't find in the previous Mart. Then we went to Jinni Printing Enterprise to print a banner.
Crystal's trip ended here as she had an organ lesson to attend at 2.30pm, the others continued their shopping adventure at Genting Mas Mall, another Hypermart which is famous for low price and high quality stuffs. We bought 15 water guns at the mall after we bought some souvenirs at Sabah Hotel's souvenirs store. At 3.30pm we bought some glitter glues to decorate some souvenirs we bought for the guests of honour and mentors.
Today's adventure ended in Giant Hypermart again because we had to buy some more souvenirs for the mentors and YB Au Kam Wah, the guest of honour.
Ms. Lat was so nice as she sent all of us home, this Shopping Day ended at 6.15pm, all of us said Thank You to Ms. Lat for taking us round Sandakan for the whole day to buy the things we needed. Once again "Thank You Ms. Lat".
"Let 'em shine,too!"
