Chinese New Year Celebration- 4 Feb 06

Just to update you all on the latest All Saints Home development. The All Saints volunteers like Esther, Michelle, JiaHao, Sharon, Tian Chi and Wei Ni participated in the game too like the "Up, up, down, down" which the seniors enjoyed thoroughly.

We have two really excellent mc like WeiNi and Tian Chi.
After the rousing performance by the All Saints staff and Christian groups, we had sumptious finger-food like chicken sticks, tarts and fried dumpling and many more. Special thanks to the All The Saints Home for the great buffet.

Do hope to see more volunteers joining us. Coming up next on 18 Feb, there will be handicraft session. I will be making cards using the stencil. It is a simple handicraft session which the seniors will enjoy and it is quite simple. Anyway, if you have any good idea, do share with us on how we can further improve on the handicraft sessions or any new program which will bring happiness to the seniors.
