Moral Angels Weekly Flash 230208

Hello!
  This is the original electronic emailer providing the weekly flash for 23 Feb 08 :)
  First of all, let me say that coming to our 10th year anniversary of service to the elderly at Moral Home, we have really come a long way. My original spam email has evolved into a blog space! Compliments to all of you volunteers who made it possible with your passion to serve and to give.
  The weekly flash serves to connect all of us, new and old, ad-hoc and regular volunteers to the Moral Home, keeping us in touch and with thoughts of the elderly in our minds. My wish therefore is for the family of moral angels to grow in strength and in spirit :) Can only do it with all of us!
  Okie okie, mai loso, onto your much desired dose of weekly flash. Teck Ee, you used to love reading the emails, I hope you still do. You are always in some of our minds 😉
  For today, let me see, Poh Yan, Huiquan, Mei Kuen, Shuhua, Christina, Sharon, Song, Rico and myself are present. Song, Sam, ShuHua, Christina, Ping Sing went to recce Labrador Park for the outing on the 8th of March, and hence was late.

  So what did we do for activities?!
  Me and Mei Kuen engaged the elderly in fishing, velcro marksman, and beanbag throwing; Huiquan played “dumb” with Uncle John, Christina was also somewhere over the dining area side playing games. Rico and Sharon did befriending around the entire home; Poh Yan was gambling with the ah mas; When Song came; he took over? Again I cannot recall properly : /
  But today…horrible, I have to sing for the elderly…so ke lien, think they were not enjoying it haha. But there was this uncle (who is growth impaired) who sang or rather hummed to songs and held his mini concert…but alas we received a complaint from the dining area. Nevertheless I let him continue as it is seldom that we have a elderly who wants to take to the mike. I am sure he’ll look forward to following saturdays haha
  Last but not least but help publicise to all about the outing Song, Sam and Mei Kuen are organising for the elderly on the 8  March 08. We are going to Labrador Park for sightseeing and games,  so please  make yourself free to  accompany the elderly. We need about  40 volunteers in all, so let’s turn up in strength Moral Angels!
  You can give Rusty; hp#97408327 a ring or an email to let her know that you want to help out ok?
  Right I shall stop here.

Regards

    Chinese New Year Celebrations Special Flash…

    Busy, busy, busy…everyone is running up and down to get things done…while cai shen ye is dressing up in the room…

    Hurry, hurry, hurry…all the old folks were seated in the dining area for the celebrations to get started as the new year songs brighten the spirit of everyone at the home…¦including the cats! haha..

    Program started: Our two super good emcee-sam and xiaoxuan wearing Mickey and Minnie Mouse band are there to greet the audience…yummy snacks and packet drinks were served….

    New Year songs were sang for a start….followed by Uncle Loi”s  mesmerizing songs, then followed by XX”s captivating songs and Jojo”s fascinating oldies….everyone”s singing and singing…hoping time will stop..:
    lao ah, lao ah…huat ah…after the singings… The old folks are involved in the “lao yu sheng”…again the nurses and volunteers are much more hyper than the old folks…but the old folks simply enjoy it as seen from their laughter…  Games were played thereafter…writing “chun lian” and using mandarin oranges to form a mouse head…. erm…but the example given looks more like a cat…wahaha.oops…

    Finally, the best part of the celebrations…the lion dance…the “da tou” wawa is sooo cute…and the performance by the troupe were simply marvelicious!!  The old folks were totally drawn into the kids hard work in the lion dance…

    After “cai qing” which matron received the oranges from the lion… a martial arts were performed by xiao shi fu…huo huo huo huo huo huo huo huo….

    And all the way till the end of celebrations there were singings by Loi, Charlie yong, Jojo, XX and Gary and Sam and Uncle Meng Huat and many, many more handsome and pretty volunteers…

    The event was a great success… 3 cheers!!!

    THANK YOU…

I did with no doubt. Now, for certain reasons, I missed Tomoko, aunt Molly, Teck Ee…very much…anyways, I”m sure those who were unable to attend the celebration will be able to fully embrace the fun-filled atmosphere through reading the flash! 😛 ENJOY!! Be positive and keep the energy high!
