They also played traditional Malay games like Gasing (top-spinning), Palm Sledding (Tarik Upih) and Giant Clogs (Terompah Gergasi).; activities that they enjoyed thoroughly. Students also gained valuable insights into rice-planting when they visited Paddy fields and also learnt about the uses of the oil palm fruit.
On Day 2 and 3, students spent most of their time at Sekolah Seri Puteri, a premier girls’ school in Kuala Lumpur where they made presentations in Malay about aspects of life and culture in Singapore. They also had classroom experiences and participated in activities like role play with student leaders from Sekolh Seri Puteri.
Students also got an opportunity to visit the Petronas Twin Towers and marvel at this architectural icon. They also visited the beautiful Masjid Putra, a mosque made of pink granite, at Cyberjaya.
