Yesterday morning, Pusat Belia dan Sukan (the organizers), Persatuan Warganegara Malaysia (PWM), Persatuan Kereta Tahan Lasak Brunei (PKTLB) and Humanitarian Emergency Aid Response Team (HEART), gathered at Pusat Belia (Youth Centre) to prepare for the despatch of humanitarian aid, consisting mostly of foodstuff and bottled water, to Limbang via a convoy of fifteen 4x4 vehicles from PKTLB. His Excellency, Datuk Hj Ag Sahak bin Hj Ag Salleh (TYT), the Malaysian High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam and Mr. James Lee, the President of PWM also accompanied the convoy. We were welcomed by YB Paulus Palu Ngumbang, a State Assembly member from Batu Danau at Kuala Lurah and proceeded to Limbang where a press conference and briefing was conducted at the District Office. The Deputy Minister of Resources and Environment, YB Dato Sri Dr. James Dawos Mamit also flew in from Kuching to attend the press conference and gave us an insight into the flood situation in Limbang. After the press conference, we were also invited to lunch at a nearby cafe. If I had known that there's going to be a press conference and hosted lunch, I would not have gone in my shorts!
