The Meeting Room @ Hoover Mission House

The Meeting Room on the 2nd floor of the Hoover Mission House is probably the main highlight of the whole building.

The meeting room is pretty huge and comfortable. I will definitely would like to have a meeting here. Shoes have to come off when entering this room.

It is like a mini museum here. There are quite a display surrounding the meeting table.

Some of the history and contribution of Rev. James Hoover are highlighted here. I think the hat shown here used to be worn by the Reverend.

Some old books which probably highlight the journal and contribution of Wong Nai Siong. There are quite a number of freshly baked kompia (bagel) scattered around this area probably to promote the Foochow delicacy.

This is the first cross for the Masland Methodist Church.

Old instrument to process the rubber sheet

This is the model of the Hoover Project which consist of Masland Methodist Church, Hoover Square and Hoover Mission House. The whole project is reported to cost around RM 20 million. I have no idea where they got the money from but I reckon the money is better spent to help those in need rather than building this mega project.

Various cross design which were collected from the mission trip

Sculptures of the last supper.

An interesting chronicle chart

Ancient home utensils and musical instrument.

An old pressure cooker. The operating instruction was engraved on it

Some of the handicrafts from Sarawak which were acquired during the mission trips

Souvenir from West Kalimantan

Clothes collected from the mission trips from China, Africa and etc.

Souvenirs from China, North Africa, Algeria and etc.

An old black disc player and TV set. I remember this TV model in one of my grandmother's house many year ago.

Beautifully painted ostrich egg shells

Old bibles on display here

Candle holder

I'm quite impressed with the collection and display here. However, I'm annoyed as most of the description and labels for the display here are in Chinese characters rather than in English
