Fanning The FlameWednesday, April 21, 2010
A weekend spent in this Methodist retreat centre in Port Dickson last month was truly a memorable one for me. The beautiful surroundings were landscaped with majestic pine trees and lovely plants that blossoms magnificent flowers. The hall below overlooks the sea that is about a kilometre away.
Opposite the hall, on the right side is a small chapel.
Right infront of the hall is a campfire site. The bonfire is probably prepared for the Girl's Brigade that was having a camp there.
The one night-stay in this old bungalow suddenly made me realise that we don't often get such privilege to stay in an old, colonial-style house anymore.
I didn't manage to take photos of those big and beautiful frangipanni trees in its compound. Only this...
The Ixora, Bougainvillea, Allamanda, Sandpaper Vine and Rose Cactus were all flowering wonderfully...
This wonderful place was built by missionaries from England who came to our shores in the middle of last century. I am one of those who has benefited greatly from the good education they have brought us.
So I will always remember my school motto - Our Utmost For The Highest!
