Yo yo angels,
I thought I forgot to send the weekly flash for 210407… Searching high and low but luckily manage to find it…is in my trash… Jin Xiong remember to upload the flash for 210407… Thank you so much..

I have read the Moral Home Travelogue : Penang … A very nice name indeed… Thank you so much for Stuart and Doris to type a detailed description on the trip to Penang… Very impressive and more efficient than my weekly flash..haha… Regret not to join you guys… Hope to do so in future if nothing happens… Can feel the excitement and thrill you guys have at Penang… I believe most of the Penang people have gain a lot of weight since most of the things you guys mentioned is about food… Some feedback is that the trip is abit too rush… Well, good feedback.. perhaps the welfare people can look into it in the future.. Thanks to Uncle Song and Auntie Molly for organizing the trip… I believe it is a deafening trip as well with Auntie Molly around.. haha…

Okay.. back to the outing to the Eastwood Park… The so-called “Sai Kang” water… Well it was a very successful and memorable outing… despite a short and different kind of outing experience… I will say this is a high key as well looking at the number of volunteers and elderly turning up.. I believe this is the first time we bring 30 over elderly to an outing, especially those who are not able to join us for the previous outing. Uncle Sam, can update us the number of elderly and volunteers joining us on that day…if you can… thanks.. perhaps you can include it in the report.. heehee…

The weather was very good and fine… not too hot and not too cloudy… The elderly were first treated with a small popiah snack prepared and sponsored by Uncle Song. Some of the volunteers who arrived earlier helped to feed the elderly…. Stuart, Doris, Auntie Molly, Jin Xiong, Fiona were some of the volunteers that helped out with the feeding..

At around 14:00hrs, volunteers started to flock to Moral Home… The volunteers were interestingly divided into five groups.. (Agar Agar, Durian, Chendol, BoBo JiaJia and forget already)… Rico”s ex-students were among the earliest to arrive to prepare the volunteers” list… Well done… next time can ask them to take over volunteers” coordinator role…

The elderly were then ushered to the main activity area where they were treated to some good songs sang by Gary, Stuart, Alex, Doris, Doris Sister and Rico”s ex-students. Given that the weather was fine, we decided to go to the Eastwood Park earlier… The elderly and volunteers were dispatched group by group.. There were usherers around for traffic control… The staff nurses even organized into their own group and bring out some of the elderly which were not even in our list… The sight of volunteers pushing the elderly throught the traffic and along the way to the Eastwood Park were spectacular… Passer-bys and onlookers were wondering who are these people wheeling the elderly..

Upon reaching the park, the volunteers then push the elderly for a stroll along the canel of Eastwood Park.. We also come across childrens” doing somersualts stunts in one of the households… After that, we proceed to a small shady area near the playground for sing-a-long session… Uncle Loi, Stuart, Gary, Alex and Rico”s ex-students performed nice and entertaining songs for the elderly and volunteers.

Time flies, and the elderly have to go back to the home to have their medicine and dinner.. Very unwillingly, the volunteers helped to bring the volunteers back to the home… The event doesn”t end there.. Upon reaching the home, all the elderly in the home were treated to a sumptuous meal…
