Due to time constraint, I shall stop yelling for our angels! Hope to see you all soon this Saturday! 😛

Smile always
Ricola

Wait!! Hold! That’s not the end of my mail! You have yet to read our weekly flash!!

Uncle Song…present! Brother Sam…present! Shu Hua, Xian, Jojo., Jinxiong, Huiquan, Sharon, Rico…present present present present…! Yong…lai liao also…

With these 10 angels around, mission accomplished successfully :) First, let me introduced you our new mahjong player, Mdm Lim Yeok Lan, a short, white hair ah ma with a pair of pearl earrings. That’s not it, having brother Sam taking charge of the Black Jack which later took over by Jinxiong was eventually handled by an ah kong-Lim Kim Lay! Wow! (Think JX went bankrupt and he bought over our Moral Home IR!!!) Now, JX is master Lim’s ‘leg boy’. Moreover, we have a new musician-Mr Chow Ming Hua who played excellent harmonica! So, MH Symphony possible huh???!! 😛 Welcome all!!!

That’s not everything happened at the home! Having Shu Hua, Xian, Huiquan, Jinxiong conducting our usual fun games with the folks at the exercise area, Jojo, at the other end, the dinning area, trying so hard to bully our ah kong with the confusing challenging jigsaw puzzle 😛 At the same time, the Chinese Chess buddies continued with their Chess war. (getting vigorous now!!) :) Guess who got “dumped” by uncle John-our MH “dumb” King?? None!!!! As uncle John is sick and bored of killing us and would rather take a longer nap upstairs! Po Yan! Quick come back! Come back to let him slaughter!

While all the above are happening, Sharon, Song and Rico are happening ‘above’. They went ‘up’ befriending the elderlys, run errands for them.

Now, paging for handsome Yong! Time for you to entertain the folks!! Oh there he is! Starring in front of the “interestingly” yellow karaoke MTV, singing ‘engrossly’(with heart and soul) for the elderlys! Hahaha 😛 Okay okay, he was just standing in front of the MTV instead! :) Jojo and Irene also sang their lungs out for the elderlys!! Fantastic!

Zoommm!! So fast comes the yummy dinner time! Xian, Shu Hua, Sharon and Rico were on the feeding floor. Having delicious healthy “Jumbo” as fruits for the folks, our healthy health dieticians cant help but drooling over…. Hey! Behave behave! Pls don’t behave like your senior-Ping… :) Oh, in the meanwhile, beautiful live music was provided by Song and Jojo!

Just to share: I was away from the Moral Home for 2 weeks and when returned, I was shocked by jojo telling me that the ma whom I used to feed gone missing! I got panic asking the nurses and the first thing that came to my mind was will I ever see her again? I cant feed her anymore?? Being silly for nothing, she was having fun at the exercise area, just that her personal wheelchair is spoilt and was left in her room… Learn how to be detached from the ah kongs ah mas was a difficult thing for many of us. Thus, go with your emotions your feelings, maybe that will have less internal conflict 😛 haha That also implies… “Miss the elderly? Fly straight to the Moral Home @ 1 Jalan Bilal!!”

See ya there!

Rico

  • Labrador Park Outing 2008

    Hilo Angels,
    Thank you for everyone support for this outings. Sorry I don t have the name list of everyone who took part… Otherwise put your name here. (SeeSan do you have the list you can add in?).

    The outings went on well with the support of the volunteers and the weather.

    Some of the committee were there by noon to set up things like Stuart, Doris, Song, Christina, See San, Gary, Josephine and SK.

    The elderlys were so eager for this outing. They were downstair waiting by 12.30.The weather was hot and sunny, so the committee decided to continue the plan to go to the park.

    Volunteer registration were from 12.30 to 1.45, most of the volunteers were there by 1.45. Last minute there were some changes in the volunteers and the elderly list, some could not make it, with the strong support of our volunteers, we manage to keep this outing smoothly. Finally, there was one less in the number of elderlys that supposed to join this outing. Good job josephine, see san and christina.

    Volunteers registered themselves at the booth.

    200803080007
    Wowww… Look at the crowd!!!

    200803080004
    Final Co-ord with the angels…

    200803080003
    The thorns among the rose… Whahaha..

    Sam gave briefing to the volunteers regarding the outing detail and the handling of wheelchair by 2pm.

    This outing was divided to two groups, one for each bus.

    We aboard the bus by 2.30. In the bus, our guitarist, and song team did a good job entertainment the elderlys. Everyone including the volunteers enjoyed the journey.

    We reached the park within half an hour. We quickly took our group photos as the unpredictable weather began to rain.Umbrellas were distributed to all the volunteers. We took a shelter at the temporary “tent”(I don’t know what it is called) which was big enough for us to conduct game there. The “tent” was not there when we prior to this outing. Luckily there was shelter otherwise we might need to get back to the bus and continue our plan B.

    In the shelter, the elderlys had their yam cake and drink, then followed by the volunteers. Elderlys’ hands were washed prior and after the snack.

    Snack Time!!! Don’t snatch.. Is enough for everyone!!! Look at all the hungry souls.

    SK led the games after that. They played musical ball, which, the music was songs sang by the volunteers and guitarist. The elderlys who had the ball when the music stopped would get a bottle of chicken essence. Then the next game involved some of the volunteers in the middle of the circle, kick or throw the ball between them and the elderlys.

    Its Game Times.. Woww..lot of goodies to be given out…

    About 3.45pm, the “passing rain” stopped. All the elderlys except two were put on wheelchair to stroll and enjoy the breeze by the sea. They were divided to two groups, one group to one end of the park, while the other group headed to the jetty. It took about 20 minutes for them to reach to one end, then each group headed to the other end of the park. By 4.30 the two groups gathered and boarded the buses to go back to moral home.

  • Moral Angels’ Weekly Flash 010308

    Hiyo Angels,

    hot and juicy weekly flash for 01/03/08 is out… get it fresh and hot from the oven… :)

    Hahaha.. it’s time for Ah yen ah ma to report. Here it goes… another eventful, busy and lovely Sat has flown away leaving behind beautiful moments for us to store once again in our human memory card.

    Last week, we had a group of young and lovely girl students turning up at Moral Home to volunteer. These girls were oriented by our recruitment leader – Ping Sing (haha…she finally gets to know the rest of her recruitment team members, so ppl watch out for her arrow for any upcoming orientation program). In the volunteer room, she shared with them photos and video clips of our past year activities. Following that, they were taken for a short tour around the home whereby they chatted and mingled with the elderly.

    After the tour, it was time for them to get up, close and personal with the Ah Mas and Ah Gongs. They joined angels such as Sharon, SK, HQ, Jin Xiong, Shu Hua, Hui Hsien, Uncle Sam and Damien in the game of fishing, beanbags throwing and befriending. Even though some of them were inexperienced in volunteering, it doesn’t stop them from bringing fun to the elderly.

    Over at the dining area, Josephine (not Jojo) and Melissa was there to take on the ‘Paris Tower Challenge” with two ah gongs. Not forgetting Li Ling who took on a tough challenge with Uncle John in the checkers games. Hmmm, wondered if Uncle John was lenient with his moves.

    At the home that day, we also had 3 under aged girls (Tiffany and Company) engaged illegally at the poker game table. But the response for the Mahjong game was so overwhelming last Sat that we nearly wanted to set up another table.

    Aunty Jenny was sitting the lift lobby waiting patiently for Uncle Song to return with her groceries. Rico Bee too was busy running errands for Mr Lee.. oh no no.. dun be mistaken that’s not her honey.

    As for the sing-a-long session that day, we had singers from both the young and older generation to entertain the elderly. With their beautiful voices, they filled the home with romantic oldies and pop songs. Their presence at the home today rescued ke lien SK from his fear of having to stage his solo mini concert, phew!

    Hey for those who were not present last sat, you know what? A big big banner has been beautifully put up for the outing to Labrador Park this Sat. Wow! Imagine taking a group picture with the colourful banner… cool, cool, cool and cool.. :)

    With that, we shall wrapped up last Sat’s activities and we hereby wishes to extend a special thanks to:-

    – all moral angels who were there to spend time with the elderly. You have indeed brighten up their day :)

    – Myrna, Li Ling, Wendy, Melissa, Kelly, Josephine, Shi Qi, Cherie and Adeline for your presence at the home. You’ve filled the old folk’s day with fun and laughters… do drop by to visit them often :)

    – Ping Sing for the wonderful orientation program arranged for the newbies :)

    – Moral Home’s talented special arts angels. The idea of using the palm prints of the elderly to paint the banner was really creative and FANTASTIC!

    – our “IT Brainies” who developed an EXCELLENT web page for moral angels to read, comment and connect.… haha..

    Some pictures taken during last week activity: Enjoy:)
