Dong Dong Dong Qiang… Gong Xi Fa Cai Angels.

this is AVL Stuart doing a cameo in the News Flash. I hope I am able to report correctly… and pls correct me if you have spot any mistakes from me ya? Ok here goes…

Firstly we have to give a round of applause to our 2 beautiful but “lethal”l Mei Kuen & Rusty becoz they r the event organisers. They have been planning this event for a long time and you can really see that they were very meticulous and attentive in their planning ( mu ha ha… next round you guys do bigger scale event ok?? no la just joking )

The first few angels to reach the home were Song, Gary, Desmond & Rusty. They had been spotted by the “paparrazi” to be busy putting oranges in paper bags… Ah yes we also have to thank Mr Michael Sum who hand donated the mandarin oranges and new year goodies( Damien pls help us say thanks to your fren ok )

All thanks to Christina for sponsoring the paper bags from DBS ( fyi, Christina went thru a lot to get these bags…thanks Ah Yen)

The logistic guys aka Desmond & Gary subsequently went about setting up the hifi.. yawn…oops i mean we must give them credit ok? If not you and I will not be hearing Chinese New Year Songs that day….

We also had Wendy, Angeline, Fiona, Dor & Yen and some other angels who helped to preparing the New
Year goodies. I tried some of the snacks and I can tell you that the snacks were delicious and first class… heheh…
There were snacks..pineapple tarts, kueh bangkit, butter cakes, love letters and packet drinks……

Next up, the paparrazzi spotted Aunty Molly and her friend that we affectionately call Aunite inside the kitchen deboning and cutting duck and roast meat…

Then we saw the arrival of the Yisun JC students led by their teacher in charge Jih Check, They then proceeded to mobilise any elderly that they can catch from upstairs… I believe this is probably the first time that these JC kids ( sigh.. I feel so old saying this ) are in contact with old folks…. but I can see that they were very enthusiastic in helping the old folks even though they were not very conversant in dialects…. Let’s hope we can attract more young blood.. Mr SK… pls do encourage them to come down often ya?

With the old folks being put in place…Our Emcees Gary and XX ( long time no see Xiao Xuan) kickstarted the celebrations. This year our God of Fortune (GOF) is non other than Poh Yan.All thanks to Poh Yan, for he has generously sponsored all the Ang Pows…..Our GOF was assisted by Hui Quan brother Hui Kiat’s girlfriend…cheem right ? anyway… they went about distributing the angpows and mandarin oranges. After that GOF also proceeded upstairs to give more Ang Pows…. The YJC students also accompanied our GOF and they entertained the bedridden old folks with their angelic and touching voices singing CNY songs along the way.

By this time, the lovable kids from Pei Chun Public Primary Sch were already strutting their stuff doing the Lion Dance. They were led by their sifu Mr Eric Tan from Hong Sheng Koon Chinese Koontow & Lion Dance Society. Our GOF had also handed out Ang Pows to all the performancers that day…. Xie Xie Ni Poh Yan…

Following the Lion Dance, our Young Angels Alexandra & Suzanna come on stage to perform a medley of Chines New Year songs using a rojak of Chinese Flute and Ang Moh Clarinet… ah…not forgetting a conspicuous small drum that Suzanne played… haha…

After the Rojak erm.. I mean the Duet Performance the YJC M203 students brought the roof down with their songs… Together with a guitarist, the students sang 4 songs…. ( SK, you might wish to forward the photos to the Students once I load them onto our Angels Website)

Ah ha…here comes the highlight of the CNY celebrations…Martial Arts by Moral Angels.. Our organisers Mei Kuen & Rusty impressed us all with their KungFu display… Next was a solo Wushu performance by Edmund. These angels were so fast i had trouble taking photos of them.Phew..

We then played some games with the old folks using Zodiac animals. The winners were then given prizes, courtesy of Giant.

This was followed with the LaoYu Sheng. It was very heartwarming to see the old folks and Moral Angels doing this….May all the old folks enjoy good health and May all your wishes for this new year come true…

The celebrations ended with a finale of mini concert where the Moral angels & yjc’s M203 belted out numerous CNYSongs for the old folks. We were also very honoured to have SK and Jih Check singing on stage together.

And just as our tummy are starting to rumble, the Buffet arrived in the nick of time. The buffet dinner is proudly sponsored by TTSH’s staffs. The Moral Angels took up the roles of serving the food and they all wore disposable aprons and gloves.This is a hygienic and sensible move as we need to safeguard the health of the old folks in case of any food poisoning.

Last but not least, I wish all Angels and those who had took time to come down last Saturday for the CNY celebrations a very PROSPEROUS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR. See you again at the Home… bye bye…
