Hi Hi Angels,
It was rather a quiet activity for last Saturday as not many angels turned up… Uncle Song, Auntie Molly and Sharon arrived the earliest.. Huai Yuan had NDP Parade Rehearsal and so he send his apology… Christina, Gary, Doris and Stuart were out for a trip to Vietnam…. Should have bought lot of goodies for us… hehe… :)

Well, Rusty, Mei Kuen and Jojo helped out in the games activities… The ah gong and ah ma had fishing, throwing of balls and bean bags… Auntie Molly as usual was the banker for the card games… SK played chess with Uncle John… Uncle Song, Rico, Sharon and Eric were there to do befriending and running errands for the elderly…

As for singing, Ah Yong took the whole show… It was Ah Yong concert tour at Moral Home… He sang the Hokkien songs continuously from the Karaoke disc without looking at the lyrics.. Impressive…

There is a new elderly at moral home… She is a Penarakan… and her name… oh no i forgot… Lucy, Sally???… Maybe Sharon will know… She speaks Malay, Hokkien and a little bit of English… Keep a look out..
