On 13 Oct 07, we have an enjoyable Sat. afternoon with lots of laughter and nice songs from the "unexpected"…ha..ha.. . I did not realised until today (thanks to Catherine’s idea & suggestions) that the elderly actually enjoyed singing Karaoke.
Not only that, we have two lovely "couples" – Kiwi & Joanne who performed for us – wow…phweet phweet (i.e. blow whistle lah) keep it up.
Another "still water runs deep" is Jane Tan – waoh…(for those who missed it, must come for the next session man). She is very powerful with her hokkien songs!!. She also does multi tasking, while waiting for her turn to sing, she actually sat at a corner and drew the envelopes (together with her son).
Let’s not forget Hwee Seng who is very "pro" – he sang most of the time (because some of us dare not come out to sing ‘cos of stage fright lah) – just like me lor…I need Catherine to sing along with me, just in case I could not read the chinese character – what a shame :(( . What to do, must act sporting leh.
Lastly we have Michael, another gung-ho chap who teases & flirt with the female elderlies – you know what – he sang and at the same time presented flowers to them – I think it really brighten up their days, it must have been years (I assume lah hor) that they have not receive any flowers from guys, let a alone a young handsome guy
Here I would like to encourage more volunteers to participate – it’s only a once a month activity, let us enjoy together with the elderly and also take this opportunity to polish up our singing skills and who knows, one day we can have our own "881" stage singing on every 7th month! – don’t laugh ok (but can giggle..heee….heee...).
On a serious note, I am really glad that our monotonous routine is coming back to "life" again, this is a real (first step) breakthrough for all.
We would also like to welcome back, our "long lost" Ivan & Mei Ling (husband & wife) – it’s been a while that we have not seen your presence, not forgetting Kiwi. & Shirley too.
Let’s keep our young spirit up all the time! – 3 cheers to the Greenteers
p.s. think we might get 3 more new volunteers this coming Saturday, 20/10 – managed to recruit on Sun 14/10 during the ESN – beginner workshop.
With Metta, Molly
