Beginning of our journey Community Service Initiative

The post is about my journey on doing community service as this module is part of my study plan. In the first few weeks of class our lecturer had prepared 2 places for us to do our charity work which is either at Persatuan Pemulihan Orang-Orang Cacat Selangor and Wilayah Persekutuan (PPOC) or Kompleks Penyayang Bakti. Our lecturer give us some suggestion on how we can contribute to the society and she even show us some pictures of the places through slide show to give us a clear idea how the place looks. After some discussion, we were separated into groups and each of the group will take one of the task. I joined the Kompleks Penyayang Bakti where we will be doing outdoor furniture or idea on decorating the gazebo. I was very excited to join the furniture group as I had done my furniture design workshop on my previous semester.

After group discussion, everyone did research on outdoor furniture and some sketches to prepare for our presentation in class. Below is the picture of our idea on outdoor furniture. The idea was having a simple plank wood with checkers board design sitting on top of brick stone where we can plant some flowers.

Our lecturer like the idea but we need to improve it. Eventually the idea of having checker board design on the chair was removed as the place we put our furniture is most likely to be under the hot sun.

Our lecturer also love the idea on putting some plants and flowers inside the recycle plastic bottles. It was one of our member's idea as well. After some feedback from lecturers we did some amendment on our slide show before presented it to the person in-charge at Kompleks Penyayang Bakti.
