Yo yo angels,
Sorry for the delay of weekly flash… Long story… my outlook 2003 crashed.. so format my whole laptop…now the situation lagi worse… siao liao… life without laptop very jialat… so therefore some of the angels might not even receive my mail. Now currently using my brother laptop to send this weekly flash…

Well, it was another rowdy and lively Saturday afternoon… We had quite a number of volunteers turn up for Saturday Activity… Auntie Molly once again conducting the card games for the elderly… she really like those big sister in the gambling den… perhaps with the new IR coming out, she can be there to be the dealer… haha… Of course with her around there will always be food… Jin Xiong, Gary, Christina, Rusty, Mei Kuen, Stuart, Doris, Uncle Sam, Ping Sing, Ah Xian, Ken Goh, Suzanne and Julene were there to assist the games… The elderly had bean bags and ball throwing..

Doris, Rusty were playing Jenga with the elderly…Sharon as usual doing befriending and running errands for the ah gong and ah ma… And definitely not forgtting Uncle Song… He was there to run errands ???????????? for the elderly as well… Mei Kuen, Suzanne and julene were playing mahjong with the ah mas… As for the singing session, it was Gary, Stuart and Ah Yong dominating the singing session. During the singing session, Uncle Sam brought the Group leaders for a small recce at the park for the coming Saturday outing. Huai Yuan was there as well together with his mum doing befriending with the elderly… However, it as a pity that Huai Yuan and Yong Guan will not be able to assist for the outing as they have enrolment or admission interview at NUS… Eric was also there as well… Despite his busy schedule, he still fork up precious time to visit the elderly… Hopefully, I did not miss anybody out….

Lastly, Mei Kuen conducted the speech therapy last sunday at NCSS for ESN workshop… it was well received and the feedback is positive… Perhaps she can conduct one for the angels as well… Ya one of them mentioned it was too “chim”.. I think she went indepth to it… Kim Leng aka Jin Xiong also attended the workshop, Togetherness In Volunterism.. Can find out from him as well… Tweety, Suzanne and Alexandra went for the Beginning in Volunteering workshop last Sunday… They had gone through the wheelchair handling technique… So Uncle Sam, no need to worry for them.. can ask them to handle the immobile elderly… ESN members commented that how come our volunteers are so young… well those 3 are the youngest besides Alex, that have attended the workshop organized by ESN…

I will also like to thank the angels for visiting my granny last Saturday… She wants me to say thank you to all of you… Auntie Vickie has recovered from her eye surgery… She even joked with us during our visit to SGH last Saturday… I think she is happy to see most of us there…

A reminder of this coming Saturday outing to the park… looking forward to it… and please kindly be there by 1330hrs… See you guys there then…

Cheers
Quan
