‘Mooncake festival’, an ocassion that I have enjoyed since young. Yummy mooncakes, beautiful lanterns, interesting story of Chang Er, exciting dragon boat race (Opp..not this one, ha ha)… How can we miss out such an enjoyable festival for our dear Ah Kong and Ah Ma?

So, on 3rd Oct 2009, our dedicated angels put together a wonderful celebration at the Moral Home.

The dinning room at the Moral Home was decorated with lots of beautiful lantern by the Moral Home’s staff (Shu Hua and I have volunteered for deco team for next year, for obvious reason, ha ha..). Thanks to Hui Quan, Hui Hsien and Angeline for decorating the center stage with a nice 欢庆中秋节 banner, it really brightens the whole place.

Susan went all the way to Ang Mo Kio to get the sweetest Pamelo, SK drove all the way to Bedok Reservoir to pick up the yummy Mooncake and not forgetting our Dear Aunty Molly for contributing the Orange Chiffon Cake + Homemade Lotus dumpling dessert. The food were yummy licious and mouth watering, the elderly finished every bite of it. Thanks Susan, SK, and Aunty molly, as well as Hui Hsien, Chritina, Rico, Shu Hua, and Angeline for preparing the snack.

The afternoon was filled with extraordinary performances:
First, our very own Moral Angels Chang Er aka Rico won the heart, mind and soul of our elderly with her beauty when she swings in to the dinning hall. I could hear the praising sound of “Sui ya”, and Lee Ah Kim even commended that she is less than 20 years old? Thanks Mr Mok and Poh Yan for creating the “Flying to the Moon” effect, that was super… COOL!! A special thanks to Rico for “everything is for the elderly” attitude, being out of herself just to make them happy.

Then, our very own Moral Angels Idol aka Uncle Loi and Mr Mok took over the stage with their wonderful voices, they have presented 2 songs with great interaction with the elderly. (Guess who was missing? Rushing her ways from the far away train station??). Thanks so much for bringing music to the Home and making the atmosphere lively!! Our “Singing Queen” Jojo, also entertained the elderly during the dinner time, adding the special taste to the food.

The last performance was from the invited guest “Bukit Batok Stomper”. Their professional line dance performances have caught the eyes of the elderly and the volunteers. The hall transformed to a dance floor, some of the Angels and our elderly – Rosie, also joined in the dance. (Spot the couple! There are holding hand and wearing the yellow flower?) Wow.. That was HOT, really HOT!! Thanks Mr Mok for inviting the guest, and sincere thanks to the Bukit Batok Stomper for making it a memorable day for our elderly.

Beside the extraordinary performances, SK and Sam have invented an artistic game for the elderly – Lantern painting. There were 5 elderly who took up the challenge. They were full of imagination and creativity. The participated painting were “Blooming rose”, “Sunny fish”, “Reunion”, “Beautiful flower”, “Yummy Mooncake” and “Lucky Number”. (Guess which was the winner??) Thanks SK and Sam for the fun game, the game also challenged Angels artistic skills as well.

How could us forgetting the most important two Emcee? Gary and Jin Xiong. They have done a good job entertaining the elderly, and making funny comment along the ways. Still remember they were trying to tell the Chang Er’s story, at the end needed to get help from the teacher, Xin Jian?

This was truly a fun, enjoyable, and memorable celebration. And this was not possible without the help of all the Angels. I want to take this opportunity to thanks everyone for contributing every part of it.
