    Your intentions was good. This event was very strange and useful and good for students. I was pleased to know your distribution.
    Please invite us again. But please don't delay time.

    It was a lovely get together with a delicious meal. The hosts opened their hearts, homes, and delicacies with us. The crowd of people this event invites are also equally as amazing and warm as one can imagine.

    I enjoyed the experience very much. There was a little practical problem in that directions to the venue were not clear enough, since there were two Red Apartment blocks, not just one and there was actually nothing on the buildings to say that they were the Red Apartments. However, this was sorted out through a franctic chain of WhatsApp messages and the hostess' young 6 year old son happily guided me to his flat once the organiser found me.
    The lunch experience itself was good. I would have given it five whole stars had I been able to converse with the hostess or her nephew about their country and their plight as refugees here in Malaysia but unfortunately, that wasn't possible I guess because of her lack of English.
    Still, I would and actually have already recommended this to friends.
