In Singapore, most of us do not really understand what is poverty or the meaning of being under-privileged. For our children, the most difficult moments could be the times when we refuse to buy an iPad2 for them, or when we did not bring them to polliwogs playground ($18 for an hour’s playtime).
So this Christmas, we decided to show our kids the true meaning of giving and serving. Our CG decided to bring a group of under-privileged children from Henderson Student Care Centre to Sentosa.
Some of our CG kids, they woke up early on a Saturday morning just to follow us and help out. Proud of them!
The kids are all very excited for the field trip. They were all ready an hour before we reached the centre.
7 years old Justin. He is so cute, kept asking me questions like, “where do you work?”, “why are you so tall?”, “can you tell me what to write about the trip in my diary?”… and he stayed beside me all the time during the entire trip. Joey on my right and he is on my left. =)

These kids are super clever! They know our history much better than me… Look how attentive all of them were, listening to the tour-guide explaining the difference of the 4 main races in Singapore. Truth is I learnt a lot myself too. =)
Do you know who are the 4 people on the left?
The kids had a first-hand feeling of squeezing into a small quarter for the Chinese workers in the early 70s.
Some “old” memories.

O.. O.. O..
Justin requested for this photo. I guessed he really like taking photos. But I am equally happy to oblige.

Thanks to MacDonald’s, we had Happy Meals for all the kids.
My favourite photo is capturing Jayne serving milo packs to one of the kids.
The CG kids enjoying their meals after serving the rest.
The younger kids? Ice-creams as rewards!
Still serving one another.. Looks like our small excursion has bore fruits.
The adults have fun too, just look at their smiles.
Thank you Everyone! You have made a difference for 20 kids this Christmas.
