RACKL’s 10th Meeting and Bowling Fellowship

23 11 2013

After a series of talks since the start of this term, RACKL organized a bowling fellowship last Saturday, 23rd of November. This was to provide an opportunity for all to come together for a fun filled day with the RACKL family. Here’s what our Interactors had to say:

“Hello there! RACKL hosted a Bowling Fellowship on the 23rd of November at Cosmo Bowl, Mid Valley. This event was held to strengthen the bond between the rotaractors, rotarians and interactors and not to mention to show off each other’s bowling skills! Hope everyone had a great time because we sure did! ” – Interact Club Of SMK Aminuddin BakiBowling Fellowship

Fellowship with Visiting Rotaractors :)

15 07 2013

RACKL has been very privileged to have an opportunity to meet our fellow Rotaractors from around the world. It gives us a great opportunity not only to learn more about their culture and society but most often gives us an opportunity to make new friends with whom we stay in touch hence forth.
PP Enrico from The Rotaract Club of Yale and Rotaractor Rowan and Shantelle from the Rotaract club of The Hunter were here in Kuala Lumpur. Being their first visit to Malaysia, members of RACKL decided to treat them to the famous Banana Leaf meal at Bangsar.  They certainly enjoyed their evening, it was a lovely evening of fellowship indeed!

A Taste Of Salsa

15 09 2008

When? 13 September 2008, Where? Pahang Room, Shangri-la Hotel KL
There we were, a motley group of newbies, two left footers and the pro-but-i-won’t-admit-its getting a crash course in the sexy dance of salsa. Just when we thought we had become masters in ten minutes with the simple enough front back side to side mambo steps, our instructor for the day – Ms Jeamie Lee of Salsajay gamely threw in a few twirls and show-stopping drops. Jeamie also taught us that dances like salsa can show a lot about a person – if you can trust easily (esp for the girls) and if you can take/give control to someone else.





Smashing Badminton

24 08 2008

 When? 23 August 2008, Where? The Challenger Badminton Courts, Tmn Len Sen Cheras

Inspired by Malaysia’s achievement of the silver medal in the Male Badminton Singles at the recent Beijing Olympics, we decided to take to the courts. Granted, most of us hadn’t lifted the racquet since our school days eons ago but we gamely plowed on for two hours smashing and serving the feathered shuttlecock in singles and doubles matches!





40th Installation “The Swinging Sixties”

28 07 2008

Making it to our 40th Installation as an active club is certainly an achievement and we made sure it was going to be a celebration! Charter President (and now Rotarian) Tan Boon Leong who set up the club in 1969 gave us the privilege of being our Guest of Honour as well as several Past Presidents notably PP Nathan, PP Karthi, PP Sam, PP Hardeep and PP Sham.

The highlights of the evening? Yummy food and a sinfully delicious dessert bar, Twin Bob Marleys making an appearence, PP Sam Tan showing the younger guys how limbo rock skills and let’s not forget, there was even a measure of Backstreet Boys, Archies & Thriller thrown in!!! Most importantly though was the installation of President Kavita Sukanandan and her Board of Directors for the term 2008/09.

Friendly Futsal Match with the Kids

13 07 2008

When? 12 July 2008, Where? SportsPlaza Futsal Court in Petaling Jaya
RACKL has kicked off to an exciting 2008/09 term ahead!

We brushed the dust off our sports gears and squared our shoulders as we faced the competition – Eleven kids aged 10-16 with the legs of steel from Rumah Ozanam. Thankfully after quick strategizing on our part (we would have been mercilessly creamed otherwise), they were game enough to accept mixed teams of RACKLians and kids.

After a quick warm-up and being divided into four teams, it was time for the matches. Having had much practise, it was obvious who controlled the ball as the kids took off like Speedy Gonzales tackling, passing and scoring goals at a blink of the eye. That’s not to say the RACKLians and our guests did not perform as we did (at least we think) some justice when the ball drifted our way. The spirit of sportsmanship was high in the air as everyone cheered at a good pass or goal and the team players were constantly changing when someone got too tired.

Two hours later, the final match was played and we adjourned to enjoy our potluck brunch made up of meehoon, nuggets, fried chicken, orange jelly and chocolate & orange cake. We decided that winners of the day were the kids and they deserved to be given both the first and second prize hampers. Each of the kids also received an exams stationery kit.

RACKL also welcomed our newest member – David Lee Wai Hoo, who was inducted in the middle of us wolfing down our meal… Not forgetting, a special shout out goes to our guests from RAC Bangsar as well as Andy Stoll – Rotary Peace Scholar and now, world traveler (check out his blog www.noboundaries.org to read about his adventures across the globe) who joined in the fun with his equally world travelling cow.

Rotary KL Diraja 81st Installation

29 06 2008

RACKLians with Rtn Hardeep & Rtn Justin

It’s that time of the year again when our weekend diaries are pencilled full of Rotary and Rotaract Installations. The RACKLians got glammed up in our dinner best and made our way to our parent club’s Installation at Shangri-la Hotel- their 81st! As per tradition, we helped out with the registration counter and tray bearers but all in all, had a great time there – awesome jazzy music, awesome dance floor (where the Rotarians and their spouses certainly showed us young ones a few moves), great company of the jovial rotarians and good food (healthier chinese course dinner this round).
Congratulations to President Francis Chan and his 2008/09 Board!
