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….
