Event Details:At 3.00pm, all of the elderly were gathered at the dining hall. The event started by the arrival of the
God of Fortune greeting every elderly as well as giving away the mandarin oranges, ang baos and
serving of snacks. While the elderly was enjoying their snacks, the God of Fortune proceeded to
level 2 and 3 accompanied by the Singing Group.
It was then followed by the guessing game conducted by Uncle Sam. The prizes were wrapped as
present and the elderly who had guessed correctly, received the items in the wrapped present.
The Lion Dance troop arrived at about 3.30pm with two lions and a God of Fortune (with the face of a
pig). The lion dance troop were superb and performed a number of acrobatics stunts. Best of all, they
generously donated their ang bao to the home.
Due to time constraint, we were unable to proceed with the 2 nd game (Bingo).
Lao Yu Sheng started at about 3.45pm. The elderly together with the volunteers were happily
shouting out their best wishes to everyone. The celebrations ended with a finale of CNY medley by
Jojo, Auntie Susan, Stuart, Doris and Joyce at 4pm.

The Moral Angels took up the roles of serving the food of braised pork belly, chicken wing, egg, black
fungus and tau pok from the stall of Mr. Lobak which is pretty popular and well known for its braised
pork belly in social media. The sumptuous dinner end at about 5pm.
Would like to take this opportunity to thank all volunteers for the time and effort to make the event a
success!

Xmas Celebrations 2018

For this Xmas Celebration, Moral Angels collaborated with Leo Club from Ngee Ann Polytechnic on 22 Dec.
In preparation for this celebration, I met up with Harry (Leo Club chairman) on 2 occasions. The first was to explain to Harry and to aid him in coming up with the proposal. The second was a site recce for the poly students.
Leo Club was tasked to :
a. Prepare two games for the elderlies to play ;
b. Prepare photobooth;
c. Perform 3 xmas songs;
d. Act as Santa Claus and Santa Rina
We were impressed with the dedication, capability and passion of the Leo Club members. They accomplished the tasks with ease and they were exemplary in mingling with the elderlies and guiding them to play the games.
While the rest of the Leo Club members played games, Santa Claus and Santa Rina went upstairs to visit those bedridden residents and sang Xmas Carol.
Thanks to Leo Club, the Xmas Celebration was a great success. We look forward to collaborate with Leo Club for future events.
Thanks to those Moral Angels who turned up to help too.
After the Xmas celebrations we had a lucky draw (proudly sponsored by you-know-who). One lucky Leo club member walked away with a PS4 console! Congratulations !

At 2.30pm, the elderlies were wheeled down into the dining area after they had a bit of siesta. Volunteers served the elderlies with the yummy Chinese New Year Goodies and they flushed them down with chinese tea.

 

 

At close to 3pm, we started the event with singing of the Chinese New Year songs. The God Of Fortune strutted into the hall to the tune of 财神到.

Thanks to the help of Uncle Yeo, Uncle James, Aunty Jane, Joyce and nurses for making sure every elderly received an ang bao and a bag of mandarin oranges.

 

 

 

 

 

We were pleased to have a group of youths from Nan Chiau Secondary School to perform a number of dances for the elderlies. They obliged the elderlies by singing songs as well. It’s so good to be young!

While the youths were performing in the dining hall, the God Of Fortune and his entourage ventured to the upper floors to hand out AngBaos to the bed-ridden elderlies. The elderlies’ hearts were warmed when they heard Chinese New Year songs. Some of the elderlies could not see nor speak, but they still responded by moving their limbs to the beat of the songs.  16425719_10211123186543165_4537131894246929741_n

After the youths’ performance, Lion Dance arrived and boy did they steal the show! The rousing drumbeats and the clashing cymbals set our hearts fluttering while the Lion Dance razzle-dazzle and captured the attention of young and old alike in the dining hall.

After the lion dance, it was time for the elderlies to play some sure-win games.

Soon after, it was dinner-time!

This year, it was made special and possible for elderlies to do their Lo Hei at the dining table themselves! Thanks to the hardworking ladies for preparing the ingredients and putting them into separate plates way in advance!

    Moral Home funpack song, "Majulah lalala... 爱拼才会赢..."

    BOOM!! AHHH!!! BOOM BOOM BOOM!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    Balloon sculptor master, Chin Soon, showing what he knows best

    What’s going on in the room at Moral Home at such early hours of 11am?! What’s the din about? These are the sounds of courageous and curious angels learning and doing balloon sculpturing. With every burst of a balloon, came a series of high pitch ahh-ing.. heehee… but after a few rounds of BOOM-AHHH session, the balloons pillars were up and ready!

    The pillars of strength

    Of course must give some noise credit to Poh Yan who constantly captured exciting and beautiful moments of angels in actions.

    Our dedicated and selfless photographer, Poh Yan, doing instant prints for the elderlys

    How can we have such a magnificent Stage design without Chin Soon? And………how can he do it alone? With Wilit, Chin Ling, Kiat, Quan, Babi, Susan, Yen, jinxiong’s miracle hands and Chin Soon’s magical touch…all the rubber tubes came alive!!! WOW!!!

    Trust fall

    Moral Home's one-day-of-fame

    “Cheng-tng hot or cold?” “chicken rice!” “Hokkien mee!”

    Lunch time was here and uncle song and kiat just couldn’t bear let the angels’ stomach go growling non stop and off they went on a mission to fill up everybody’s stomach!

    Angels having quick lunch before program

    Soon enough…everyone’s taken their lunch and the drum rolling of programme became faster and faster…. Xin Xin and Jingyi were already scurrying around for the auction items, making sure and double-comfirming everything is in place so that things will run smoothly..how fast learner they are isn’t it… from newcomers to a now…experienced and confident pair..good job!

    Gift models for the day, Xin Xin and Jingyi

    Then the MOST important people came… who are they? The singers of the ge-tai of course!! VGC gang lead by Andrea and Honey came, Sk..whose homeland is the yellow soil high hill…JinXiong who chi dao, Susan whose flowers happen to be on the roadside, Stuart who came with a big big wind and Uncle Loi who came asking the sky and Jojo (hat queen) started to stroll in…

    The all-or-nothing performers

    VGC members entertaining the crowd

    More and more angels wings spreading….one by one flew in with grace…. like Stella who is our new volunteer but has already blended in with us so well…nickson the big boss advertisement man…

    Jennifer who brought along two bubbly young angels along… Kacy and Chelsea…with the trio around..the volume of laughter escalated!

    Birthday songs were sang for Singapore as well as to elderly, volunteers’ august birthday! Soon the yummy National Day cake and ‘Shou tao’ were served by our delicate food handlers.. Rico, Doris, Yen, Babi, Chin Soon, Stuart, Nickson and many more angels who helped to distribute…

    Birthday girls

    Volunteers helping to serve the treats

    With the help of each and every angel’s dust… the dinning area of moral home brightens up! The event was then ready to be kickstarted!! Sam and James were the emcees and they are definitely professionals! The normally noisy atmosphere became noisier and everybody got a taste of real auctioning! One by one items are being auctioned out and finally the highlight came when ge-tai started… all singers put in their best to impress and sure enough…all are over-qualified to be singapre idols!! we even have a world class pianist..kiat! who mesmerize everyone with his talent in piano!!! “Chen Ping Jie” also came to grace our event and the songs she put up for the elderly….can indeed be felt by our hearts and needless to say the elderly…

    Forever young Uncle Sam

    The effervescent Uncle James

    “Xuan wo, xuan wo!! 15!! 18!! 20!! Huat ahhhh” With all their might, people like Honey, Mona, and many more hardcore volunteers like Rico who took special leave to shout their hearts out just so that our dear elderly get a prize!! How can we do without these volunteers? =)

    "I only have $10, but heck... three-zero!"

    "choose us!"

    All good things must come to an end…but that day had another beginning!! we were treated a yummilicious buffet dinner by moral home management! All volunteers and nurses and staffs had a good treat and bonding and re-bonding time!

    A treat from the staff for everyone

    Three cheers and three cheers and three cheers to Moral Angels!! Hip Hip Hoooray!!!!!!!!!
