DRR of the Rotaract International District (RID) 3310 Rtr. Rytha Lew met the Rotaractors from Rotaract Alumni Mora on the third day of the tour Singract, which was 25th March 2018. She warmly welcomed the group by her pleasant smile. We met Rtr. Rytha at the Bugis junction and started getting to know each other while wandering around the Bugis Street. As she mentioned, this market has just about everything that any tourists can afford – Souvenirs, t-shirts, shoes, bags, jewelry, knick-knacks and other fashion items for lower prices compared to other shopping malls in Singapore. She showed us some good places to buy electronic devices, sweets, chocolates, t-shirts, and souvenirs and instructed us about some other places for shopping.
After a while, we went for a tea and we tasted different flavored Thai Iced Milk tea. It was a new experience for us and few of us were struggling with some of the local tea flavors. While having our tea, Rtr. Rytha explained about the Singapore culture, education, economy, politics, and lifestyles. We let her know about Sri Lanka’s. Since Rytha had never been to Sri Lanka, she was amazed by our explanation about the natural beauty in our country. We invited her to visit Sri Lanka. Later we exchanged our experiences about each Rotaract district and the way how we contribute to the society with Rotaract. After the tea time discussion, we exchanged souvenirs and a letterhead, symbolizing after meetup. Then we again started roaming around streets to feel the local experience in Singapore.
At the end the Singract- exploract, we said goodbye to Rytha Lew with the hope of meeting her next day at the farewell courtesy of the Rotaract club of NTU (Nanyang Technological University).
