A little bit of charity during CNY

On the 4th day of CNY, I joined a local society to the old folks home and orphanage.
大年初四,我和友人去了一趟太平老人院和孤儿院,所谓过年也不忘行善嘛!

The old folks home located at Medan Taiping

My small yet sincere personal contribution to the elderly and orphan
个人买了些零食和日常用品给老人家们和孤儿

The elderly were waiting at the hall once we arrived

The chairman spoke a bit before we started to distribute goods and and paos to the elderly

The lady in blue is the chairman of the society called GBBM (Gerakan Belia Bersatu Malaysia), she is a young and energetic lady =) 
这次活动的主办人是太平青团云,而蓝衣的那位小姐就是主席,是个很nice很活泼的主席~

She performed a simple magic show to entertain the elderly

Then it was the goodies giving time
在座的每位老人家都收到我们的心意,有吃的,日常用品和红包~

After spending some times with them, we took a group photo before we moved on to the orphanage. Spot me! ^^
在离开之前先来张大合照!


Then we arrived at the orphanage.
离开了老人院就出发到孤儿院咯!


2 of them performed a song using ukulele
其中两位学生唱了首英文歌来娱乐大家

Another 2 cute girls performed an Indian dance to show their appreciation to us
另两位小妹妹就跳了段印度舞,很会摇哦!

The rest joined in the dance too!

The visits was published at a local newspaper on 6th Feb
活动也有登上报纸 ;)


I bet everyone is contented and happy this day! Such a memorable and meaningful day!

这天虽然热,不过大家都很开心满足!能够陪陪老人家和孤儿们,看到他们开心,我们也很开心!的确是非常有意义的一天!;)

  5. It id meaningful to do something as charitable as this. A great way to give to the old folks. My parents always donate some food and clothes few times in a year and usually on cny they will donate more. Last time when not married I will help them bring over the foods to the old folks home.

    1. oh, indeed a very good deed to go to the old folks home and orphanage to pay them a visit during the festive season.. but i think they do no really want any goodies, but somebody to visit them and talk to them, especially the elderly.. they will be very happy if someone talks to them and listen to their nenek kebayan stories.. :)

    3. but i think the most meaningful thing you have got from the visits is not about the newspaper thing lah.. i am sure you had a good time spending with the elderly and the children, and i guess you also learned something from the visit?? :)
