May 5th to 7th:
The Ball carriers separated for a few days with Andrew heading with The Ball directly to Port Dickson and Iris visiting a friend in Johor Bahru before joining Andrew. There was enough time for The Ball to be welcomed into Malaysia by the bus driver and by immigration officials and for Iris’ friend and her family to sign a replica SDG Ball.
In Port Dickson, The Ball and its carriers were invited to join a local family’s celebrations of Hari Raya – the post Ramadan Muslim fasting ending festival. Their local restaurant offered food and drinks for free for all visitors. The Ball and its carriers were most welcome guests. Headers, signatures and pledges duly followed.
