Pioneer Day in Malaysia

Last night we had the greatest Pioneer Day Celebration as a branch. We had a great pot luck. Oh my gosh... the variety of food we get is fantastic. Curries, salads, desserts, noodles, rice dishes. My favorite new Malaysian hybrid is the curry puff. A tender piece of deep fried pastry folded around succulent curried potatoes and chicken. The only "pioneer"food we had was the potato salad (boring) that I brought.
We had fun games, the primary sang a pioneer song, and one of the Elders gave a presentation on Pioneers. We may not be in Utah, but the Saints here know all about faith in every footstep. What a great bunch of people, pioneering together right here in Penang.

Yea!!! You did it! Welcome to Blogdom!

I love to hear that Pioneer Day is celebrated all over the world. How exciting to be among modern-day pioneers! The food sounds amazing. I bet your ward loved your potato salad too.

This is going to be fun to read all about your adventures in Malaysia! (I hope you don't mind, but I got your blog address from Elisabeth who got it from Malania.)
