Looking back at the things that we have done, the sweats, the tears, the laughter, the enjoyment, the frustration, the happiness, the friends that we have met, have stayed vividly in my memory. On behalf of the committee members, I will like to express my heartfelt appreciation to everyone of you who have contributed to the home in any other ways. Thank you so much.

Last Saturday, activity was as usual. We have card games, fishing games, board games, and mahjong and karaoke session with the elderly.

  • Xmas 2006

    Hi Angels,

    Merry Merry X’mas!!!. Wow, we have a spectacular and enjoyable Christmas Celebration last Saturday. I feel so young and lively that day, thanks to the students from Temasek Polytechnic, School of Information Technology Studies Club. I believe this is the first time that Moral Angels co-organize the Christmas Celebration with the students from Temasek Polytechnic. The students and the volunteers arrived at Moral Home at about 1pm. Wendy and I began conducting a short orientation of the home as well as wheel chair handling for the students.

    We began the program with a simple introduction and highlights of the Christmas event by Ping Sing and a handsome student from Temasek Polytechnic. We had a short Christmas Caroling, followed by the cutting of the log cake ceremony. The Santa Clause, Santarina and the elf arrived shortly after, distributing the door gifts to the elderly. The volunteers and the students sang Christmas songs as the Santa Clause and Santarina and the elf giving away the door gifts to the elderly.

    The conducting of the 1st game immediately commenced after distributing the door gifts to the elderly. As the volunteers were conducting the 1st game, we had the Santa Clause, Santarina, the elf and two groups of guitarists and singers went to the 2nd and 3rd level to do Christmas Caroling as well as the giving out of door gifts to the elderly who were bed ridden and not able to join us for the celebration.

    After the 1st game, we had performance by Fuji and Josephine. They sang 3 songs “FIR – Fly Away”, “Mavis Fan – Xue Ren” and “Guo Mei Mei – Merry Merry Christmas”. Their performance was fantastic. The cheering and waving and clapping of hands had raise up the climax of the celebration. Everyone was so high…

    Due to the popular demand of the 1st game, we decided to have another round of the game. The 2nd game commenced immediately after the first game. It was the passing of presents. The only difference was that the present was wrapped with many layers. The old folks will pass the present around and when the music stopped, the old folks who were holding the present unwrapped a layer of the present. This will continue until the present was revealed. The old folk who unwrapped the last layer would get the present.

    A hilarious and humorous skit was presented by the Temasek Polytechnic Students after the 2nd game. It narrated the change of a god of fortune, who gave out money to a Santa Clause who gave out the presents. The students ended off with Temasek polytechnic mass dance and the chicken dance. It brings back very good memory when I first stepped in as a student of Temasek Polytechnic. My seniors taught out both dances during our orientation days. Those were the days….

    We had group Christmas caroling for our finale. We sang ‘We wish you a merry Christmas’ and ‘Santa Clause is coming to town’. The atmosphere of the event yet again brings to another climax. The TP students ended with a song that went along with the hand signal.

    After the celebration, the elderly, the volunteers and the students then helped themselves with the sumptuous buffet dinner.
