Just another day at the office
Here’s a little look at what it’s like during a day working as a volunteer at the BSBCC.

0700: Time to think about getting up.
0845: Breakfast (3 slices of toast from the cafeteria, but only ever enough butter & honey to cover 2).

1630: Wash up, tidy up & talk about what needs doing tomorrow with keepers. Also time to help them a little with their English and maybe work on my Malay or Dusun.
