Moral Home Weekly Flash 241107

Hi hi angels,
Its me (Ah Quan) here to do the weekly flash… How have you guys being?? Missed me? haha.. :) I was at the home last Saturday.. Sad to see not many volunteers were around to welcome me back… sigh.. okay la.. jokes aside.. have a lot of very important announcement to announce… So must pay attention ho…

Well, as for last saturday, we have Uncle Song and Uncle Meng Huat to conduct the card games with the ah ma. 3 ah ma and 1 ah gong were there to play mahjong… In fact there were a few of new residents who know how to play mahjong… see whether we can involve them as well.. I think we need another set of mahjong table.

Mei Kuen, SK and I conducted the games activities… Quite fruitful as most elderly get to play at least 2 to 3 games. We had mineral water bottles games, fishing, bean bags throwing and ball throwing games. These games were then rotated among the elderly. Gary, Sharon and Rico went aroung the home running some errands for the elderly. Gary, Uncle Meng Huat and I then conducted the sing-a-long session….

Important Announcements

1. ESN Carnival
The ESN Carnival will be held on the 15th December 2007, Saturday from 2pm to 4.30pm..

    Hello Angels,

    Last saturday was pretty normal at the Moral Home. Board games by Poh Yan with Uncle John, Music entertainment by Yong, Cards game played alternately by Meng Huat, Song & SK, fishing by Yen, Mei Kuen, Alex, Rusty.

    Aunty Jenny is back home after almost 2 weeks in CGH. Her right toe got injured and it’s black and painful. According to her, doc said not gangrened. As for Uncle Yiak Long, he’s recovering well but still wont be able to come downstair to play Timburr.  The rest of the ah kongs and ah mas are recovering well from the bout of flu.

    Some Angels were up and about at day break helping at the Christalite Home. It was a real experience for us. This home is like a prison, with high grilled gate and barbwired. There is a 24 hrs resident security’s guarding the door. The residents must sign and get a pass before they can go out. Most of them have not been outside since they came in, especially those on wheelchair. Some even forgot how to take food from side dishes because they are so use to eating their meals  from one tray in front of them. Some forgotten how to talk and some got difficulty in swallowing, Mei Kuen & Rusty can come in handy. :) We were slow in making so many pots of freshly brewed coffee and the residents were eyeing us. It’s unnerving :)  So angels, interested to help or look see, look see, come forwards! :)  Some angels are going down this sat. Thanks pals.

    Ping Sing wont be able to come down for the next few weeks coz she’s preparing for her fruit florist shop opening next month at Kovan, Simon Road.  Go,  peep at her website.  www.7degreec.com :)

    Cheers, sharon.

    Hi Angels,

    9 Angels; Song, Sam, Yong, Poh Yen, SK, Meng Huat, Desmond, Mei Kuen & I, were down at the Home last Saturday. CDF’s Captain Stuart came down to make sure the room was properly locked up and angels were properly seated for dinner at Bangkok Jam :)

    We managed to do our usual activities of board games, cards, mahjong, fishing and highlight of the day, Singing. We have quite a few new ah kongs and ah mas, they were a bit shy. We’ll have to get them to join the fun. :) One of the new ah ma can play mahjong but too bad no more place for her.

    Last Saturday, we saw SK carrying marketing bag, to market, to market, to buy a…bagful of Instant Noodles and…for uncle Kok Kee. Ha, great job.

    Yiak Long is back Home. He’s still weak but well. But aunty jenny is still in CGH. Uncle Joo Keat still having sore throat and Uncle Kok Kee’s recovering well.

    Oh, some news from Tomoko, “Hi sorry 4 not having contacted so long. A bit lazy in logging pc lah…we are now in Brisbane and settling in a new place. Try to log in.”

    Next Saturday morning around 7.30-10.30am, 8 angels are going down to Christalite Methodist Home,#51, Marsiling Drive. Directions: – Woodlands MRT (meeting point)

    Information: -Christalite Methodist Home is a haven for about 170 socially disadvantaged referred by the MCYS. When destitutes and vagrants are brought into the Home, they suffer low esteem and have little confidence in themselves, as their families and society may have rejected them. To address this, the Home introduced a “Home Earning Scheme” whereby some able body residence are match to suitable tasks like laundry, gardening, cooking, etc…in the Home. Residents participating in this scheme earn some pocket money.

    They are seeking help from volunteers to bring cheers and flavors to the residents’ f & b.:) We’re going down to help serve breakfast and see what else we can offer in future.

    Angels, if you are interested to spread your loves to other home please step forwards.:) Exchange a little less sleep for some warm smiles and handshakes. :) Get in touch with me, if interested.

    Cheers
    Sharon
