The children are drawn to sand painting and Gor Gor has his hands on doing one.

The Jie Jies (elder sisters) manning the stall invite Gor Gor to play the above game. You have to attempt to throw the ball into the hole. The more balls that you manage to hit the hole, the better your prizes will be. The lovely girls taught and guide Gor Gor on how to play. They also helped Gor Gor to choose the prizes. Thank you Jie Jies!


Soon it is time to go for the movie, each of us get to collect our popcorn and a bottle of Pepsi.
