Let me share with you some info on The Little Sisters of The Poor home in Penang:

Little Sisters of the Poor is the home for the aged located at Lorong Batu Lanchang in Air Itam. The Penang home of the Little Sisters of the Poor was founded in 1952, on a site donated by prominent philanthropist Aw Boon Par and Madam Teh Ah Lan. The building, constructed in the Art Deco style, along with its gateway, was completed in 1954, and officially opened in 1955.

The Little Sisters of the Poor is a Roman Catholic order of nuns. It was started by a Frenchwoman from Brittany named Jeanne Jugan. The sixth out of eight children, Jeanne led a hard life. Her father died when she was small, compelling her mother to raise all the children on her own. At the age of 16, Jeanne took a job as kitchen helper to the Viscountess de la Choue. The Viscountess was a devout Catholic. She took Jeanne along when she goes to visit the sick and destitute. Her charitable work had an effect on Jeanne, who nine years later decided to take up a job at the local hospital. She worked there for six years, and left that job when she went to work for an elderly woman. Together, the two women began to look after the poor and destitute, until when Jeanne's elderly companion passed away.

In 1837, Jeanne and another elderly woman, 72-year-old Francoise Aubert, rented a small cottage and used it to form a prayer community. They were joined by Virginie Tredaniel, a 17-year-old orphan. Together, they started a ministry to teach the catechism and helping the poor. The Little Sisters of the Poor organization had an unofficial start in 1839, when Jeanne brought home a blind widow named Anne Chauvin and began looking after her. Through the encouragement of her companions, Jeanne began the work to look after abandoned elderly women, forming the organisation now known as the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Jeanne Jugan passed away in 1885. On 3 October 1982, she was beatified in Rome by Pope John Paul II. Today, the organization that Jeanne Jugan founded runs homes for the elderly in 32 countries, including the one in Penang.

No need to thank me because I have said it earlier it is better to give than to receive. Moreover, I have my fun serving the 2.8kg sexy looking christmas Chicken to forumers and thier families at the book x change which they thought it was the turkey.
I remember once, I sent about 5 chicken to a community together with the Sunway hotel turkey .....and the children whacked all the chicken but left the poor turkeys aside. :D

Let me share something with the forumers here on why a lot of money is required to add extra beddings to a hospice home. First & foremost, the beds required are not the ordinary beds you and I use at home. These beds are single beds and have protective barriers to prevent patients from falling nover at night - which is possible due to intense pain they suffer being terminally-ill cancer patients. The beds also come with special equipments to lift and lower and tilt and thats why we need to buy specially-made beds. Here's a picture of a sample of these types of beds:

So, for this Christmas season, if you could spare a kind thought for the people living in the hospice and many of those denied the chance because of a lack of facilities, do help us to help them.

We appreciate even the smallest amount of donations, just send us any amount that you feel comfortable with, and help us to help those that need the special care in the hospices.

I am making a Christmas wish that instead of F1 and another twin tower, the govt would start to set up klinik community at Subang Jaya and hospitals care like hospice and up to KPI mark for aging citizens. :)

Say what??? Even if we dont need it since we can afford to go SJMC, it doesnt mean that all people in SJ or USJ is that rich. And just because it doesnt benefit the forumers, take heart for the MP when he pushed this idea to set up community service or hospital. We can be that selfsh. At least, it is better than F1 idea.

Why not you go search for the thread about MP Loh Gwo Burne and his community clinic project in this forum some months back and see how some forumers criticised his wasting of time? In the meantime, lets help this thread get back on track?

Dont know how to lah :confused:
To post here is already a big achievement for a old mean chef like me who can dishes out 101 menu, I am blurred sotong. Sotong make into curry or crisp - I knowlah. :D
In fact, one customer tonite asked me to potong two boxes of Norwegian salmon brought directly. What he did not expect that instead of potong into 8 portion to be distributed to his friends, I sliced it thin and wrapped that like roses, goldfishes, lotus, - all in 8 designs and marinated it further with infused EVOO. This I knowlah. :D
Anyway, I appreciate if you can paste that and repost it because I personally feel it is an important community projsect - otherwise we might think our MP is doing nothing except to produce another Lngamgate correct, correct, correct sequels. :eek:

I can't do that in this thread and I think this thread is for fund raising for some charities not for discussing spending government money on community clinic nor is it for discussing how you slice salmon into 8 different pieces etc. It is already way out of topic. Pls do try not to hijack a thread like this set up for specific purpose... :mad:

Not many USJ people believe in giving? Perhaps, they might doing silently like silent night, holy night.
Anyway, allow me to say it for one more time - just got another small fortune again though still did not strike the Magnum Jackpot 2 . That is two days in a row. Could it be three times lucky before I finally hit Magnum Jackpot 1 this Saturday which is 3,000,000 ? :) :D :)
Give and ye shall be receive ten folds.
