At the same time back in KL, Our AMSEP team had exchange program with Indonesia medical students. Our fellow friends went to Indonesia during the 1st year end break and it was time for the Indonesians to visit us in Malaysia. There were many activities planned for them, but due to the sudden H1N1 isolation, campus KCKL was closed for a week, hence the academic sessions were cancelled. However, AMSEP organisation managed to pull through this obstacle and the Indons had lots of fun.
They visited many places in KL specifically KLCC (skybridge and Suria KLCC), the National Blood Bank, Batu Cave, National Palace and other places. They went to Central Market too to buy Baju Kurung as this costume is hard to find in Indonesia.
And I shall let the pictures do the talking...
