CNY 2011

EVG promised to deliver yet another great celebration at Bright Hill Evergreen Home held on 12 Feb 2011 正月初十. Together, volunteers kept making good progress in terms of attendance, punctuality, greater initiatives, stronger comradeship and endless love and care for the elderly.

The celebration turned out to be a ‘roaring’ good time with everyone (elderly, students, teachers, home staff & volunteers) feeling so high during our 3 ‘yum sengs’. OUR DEEPEST APPRECIATION TO EACH AND EVERY ONE PRESENT!!!

人气旺旺旺….义工朋友, 学校老帅,学生和老人家聚在一起打成一片非常热闹,还制造许多温欣的场面。有几回还出现CTE的similar状况… the difference was the humans were causing congestion! Hahas…maybe it was an idea to install a ’charity fare gantry’ to raise funds? Na…I am just joking ….we at EVG means ‘Ever Virtuous Group’. ERP and EVG values are totally different! We have lots of lovely and charitable volunteers, families and friends around who supported us through the years. EVG strongly believes that they will continue to give us the required support. OUR HEARTFELT THANKS FOR THE PAST, PRESENT AND THE FUTURE!!!

相机多多多…..Oh…many volunteers have upgraded their cameras to more professional type and for Jia en & Jia yi, their reason for a new camera was to capture sharper images of the elderly. Hey hey lovely gals (clap..clap). Even IPHONE cameras were working hard! Jia en was quick to upload a good number of really touching photo shoots onto our blog: https://evergreenvolunteer.wordpress.com THANKS, JIA EN! Will other photographers be adding more photos to the album??

吉祥人物…财神爷
This auspicious figure continued to rock the Home…one thing for sure…he is the elderly’s top favourite…elderly were always eager to shake his hands and receive their share of mandarin oranges and ang pow. Thanks to our Caucasian friend, Adrian and volunteers who assisted him to Levels 3 & 4. Adrian, that belly of yours seemed to have shrunk a little but you still managed to make the elderly laughing their way! WELL DONE, ADRIAN!!!

中华中学华乐团和古筝团
在这七八年内,EVG 和Bright Hill Evergreen Home不断得到中华中学华乐团和古筝团的爱戴。很庆幸有Mr Ng的穿针引线和古筝老师的细心安排才让光明山修身院增添需多新春的气氛。今年,学生们更是自己谝曲为老人家特别写了一段CNY Medley….成功的提高学生精湛的表演也让在场的老人家和义工顿时HIGH了起来!
OUR DEEPEST APPRECIATION TO MR NG, MS HO AND ALL THEIR STUDENTS FOR THE FANTASTIC PERFORMANCE. WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN IN 2012!!!

Lastly but not least, a BIG THANK YOU to Woei Shiuan for coordinating a large donation towards a sumptuous dinner for the elderly. The food was plentiful and it also helped to fill the stomachs of some volunteers who skipped their lunch just to be early for the celebration. Here’s wishing WS all the very best to her and her second baby who is due in the next 2-3 months.

To Kiwi for his spontaneous and swift action in his sponsorship and delivery of the 2011 calendars which kicked off a good start of the year for the elderly. MANY THANKS, KIWI AND SORRY FOR THE LATE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT!!!

To ALL our sponsors for the CNY event. Your donation was put to good use for which many of you had witnessed how your precious givings had contributed towards a successful afternoon!!

PLEASE REMEMBER TO CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS AT ‘GALLERY’.

Cheers, Catherine
