Hi Angels,

I’m back again. Thank you Christina and Rico for writing the last 2 weekly flash. The writing of flash is open to all Angels <*hint*> <*hint*>.

It was a quiet afternoon as I made my way to Moral Home. I thought I was early, but Susan was already there chatting with the elderly. The nursing staffs were having an extended meeting, hence there was a slight delay in preparing the elderly for Sat activities. Nevertheless by 3pm the folks were all nicely seated in the activity area, thanks to Angeline, Yu Shan, Chee Wah, Mei Kuen, Christina, Jojo and Sharon.

One of our 2009 goals is to increase the participation rate, and last Sat was a good start. We need more Angels to be in by 230pm to bring more elderly down to the activity area. We should also work more closely with Sally, the caretaker, to identify more elderly suitable for activities.

When we involve more elderly, naturally we will need more activities and Angels right? There was no lack of either last Sat. The ever popular MJ and BJ went on as usual. The seasoned players certainly need no cajoling in getting down to action. The main activity was ball throwing game, to the relief of Angels having nightmare of fishing game. It was a refreshing change and pleasant surprise that a lot of elderly are quite apt at throwing balls.

Led by Sk and Hui Xian, the Games & Arts group were busy drawing the banner for the Marina Barrage outing. Shermin was the creative mind behind the design. Home residents were also enlisted to help with the drawing and painting. Thanks also goes to Sam, Desmond, Shu Hua, Wendy, Poh Yan, SK, Mok, Min Yuet, and Rico with helping out the activities. Song was at his usual best, running errands for the residents, undeterred by the pouring rain. Aunty Molly ruled the BJ table, and even had a ‘Ban Ban’. You could hear the groans of the players from far.

Susan is currently making new bean bags for the weekly Games. Anyone with discarded cloth or fabric can pass them to Susan for recycle. Mok has created some sample of ping ping fishes and they look fantastic. We plan to get the residents involved in making the bean bags and fishes.

After activities, we were invited to celebrate the 1st birthday of our youngest Angel, Lucas. He even has a personal blog. Thank you Stuart and Doris, we had great fun.
