My First Volunteer


At the age of two decades and I finally able to join volunteer activities.

I have always wanted to go out there and help, at least once. wondering how does it will be addictive as it looks like. Which we did. Last Sunday, Farid asked me if I wanted to do something, looking for the Instagram post there it is.

“Commonwealth Big Lunch”


In which it includes beach clean up and planting trees at Berakas Recreational Park. I mean that’s cool that we will be having lunch while networking, but before that of course to do the activities.

We were asked to form a group of 4 people before planting the trees, 2 mini trees each. However we managed to plant twenty-four trees, it’s impressive and I had so much fun digging the hole and get to know them a little. Despite how hard it is for me to talk to women, but I need to. It’s amazing to know people in a short period of time, but at least we remember some part of it in our memories.

While waiting for the big lunch, sitting down looking at the bright blue sky, greenish blue ocean and people running around the beach, I accidentally made a sand ball. Yes, instead of snowball, I managed to make a sand ball. They laughed at how silly I was doing such thing.


After we are done planting and making weird things with the sand and watch a car slowly sink into the sand, it’s lunchtime! Nope, we have to wait for the guest of honor. Therefore while waiting, we met this nice uncle who sells ice-cream for only 50 cents!

Bought this yummy ice cream for only BND $0.50 and I think that Farid bought more than 3 ice cream.

We skipped the Big Lunch’s Lunch? 🤣 Ate somewhere else, which I forgot where. Overall, volunteer on a Sunday was great!

  1. Wow, that’s really amazing and on top of that it seems really fun
    Truthfully speaking, m slightly ashamed to admit that in my 9th grade i’ve enlisted myself for volunteering, but didn’t turn up that day…think I’ll give it another try after reading this.
