MAKING CANDLES

Making coloured and scented candles is really quick and simple. What's more, you'll save so much money. If making candle is easy, why do you ever buy one from a shop? What you need in making candle are wax, moulds, wick, dye discs, essential oils, and a double boiler. All these materials are available from craft shops. Or if you do not want to buy them, you can improvise with an old saucepan, Pyrex jug, or even a sturdy can, in a pot of water. After providing the materials, follow this procedure or instruction in making candles!
First of all, melt the wax. All wax has a flash point, so to prevent it bursting into flames; you must melt it in a double boiler, with water in the bottom of the pan.
Then, prepare the mould with the wick. Thread the wick through the mould and make sure that you leave a good few centimeters sticking out of the hole in the bottom.
After that, add the scent. If you want a scented candle, add a few drops of essential oil to the melted wax. You can use any essential oil you like, as long as it doesn't contain water.
Next step, pour the wax into the mould. Try and tip the wax into the mould quickly, all in one go, to minimize spillage and air bubbles.
Then, release the bubbles and top it up. Releasing the air bubbles will eventually make the candle sink, so you will need to top it up with more melted wax.
Finally, remove it from the mould. After four or five hours, the candle can be taken out of its mould.
Your candle is now ready for display. Remember, you must always leave it for a day before lighting it.

Dear Dr. Hambali Sahali,
We would like to invite you and your staff to visit our school SMP Duta Bangsa, where we are engaged in an exciting service learning project.
Service-learning is a teaching method that engages our students in solving problems within their school and communities as an integral part of their academic studies. It is hoped that students master important curriculum content by making meaningful connection between what they study and its real-life applications. Besides, students become more effective citizens through acts of kindness, community stewardship and civic action. This effort is made possible with support from Learn and Serve America, a program of the corporation for National and Community Service.
May we suggest that you visit us on January 11, 2010 at 10 o’clock? This will give you an opportunity to see our program in action. We have also invited our community partners, members of the local media, and several families of students whom we serve. They are eager to talk to you about the importance of investing in service-learning activities in our local community.
We have enclosed a one page profile of our program for your reference. I will contact your office within the next two weeks to follow-up on this invitation. Again, we do hope you can join us on this occasion.
Thank you very much for your consideration.
Sincerely,
Andy Sehatapi
