A gift in a box project

Lately Chea have been organising “A gift in a box” project, where we suppose to decorate a recycle shoe box, and put in a toy, some sweets, some stationary and a greeting / encouragement card. Ideally, this project is to be done by together with your family for both family bonding and also to bless the children in the ripas. Since Ripas hospital has been very gracious to us for allowing us to run this project. In fact, they are very happy that we are doing this.

On the actual day, it is separate to 2 session, morning session held at the sport complex. They closed the whole sport complex car park and only allowed those participants and parents to park their car. So we have no problems at all with parking, anyone of you should know how difficult to find a parking in a hospital on the usual day >w<

They all sat down quietly and listen to Caroline for her story telling. Amazing quiet and focus!!! But I do wonder how many of them really understand Carol though, since she speak in english and majority of them speak malay >w<

After we are done with the whole session, some of us went to Jin Chew for their famous Roti Kuning for tea break.

And I come across this phenomenal view when I arrived home, where you can see a ray of rainbow colour light on the sky. It is so difficult to spot that Lily, Hannah and girl girl have problems to find it.
