I attended Sunday Dhamma school in Metta Lodge since primary school. Metta Lodge had been a second home for me. This year, Metta Lodge has a mission. The mission is to raise fund for our new Buddhist building in Taman Johor Jaya. The fund-raising committee have organised a fund-raising event. The event’s topic was “Love & Peace Charity High Tea cum Floral Exhibition & Show”. This was my first time be a volunteer at fund-raising event. I learnt some lessons through this event.

Love & Peace Floral Exhibition

Event: Love & Peace Charity High Tea cum Floral Exhibition & Show

1) Be Prepare

Before I reached the event hall, I always thought that the event was about floral arrangement exhibition. Sister Doris Looi was a regular devotee in Metta Lodge. We often saw her offer flowers in Metta Lodge. Thus, the altar usually has beautiful flowers arrangement. I was surprised to see that there were many performers were preparing for the Floral Show. In the end, Sister Chan assigned me to usher the guests.

2) Be Flexible

I was quite free during before the arrival of guests. I decided to snap some photos of the event. I was having great time to practice my photography skill. The floral arrangement were prepared by members of Ikebana Johor Bahru. The floral exhibition photo album can be view HERE.
