    Hi pcYeoh - The gals haircuts are done. As Orchi has forgotten to bring the complete 'tools', we could only do it for the girls this time. Next Sunday, Orchi's staffs are going to do it for the boyz..

    Thanks to Firefly's suggestion, Orchi had delivered 2 trays of 'B' size fresh eggs(the shop didn't have size 'A' ones), and a cartons x 24 bags x 450gms of MILO, to the HOME.

    BTW, while the haircuts session was going on yesterday afternoon, a TOYOTA Camry pulled up to the garage, a kind lady came with her children to offer few large bottles of Fresh Soya Beans + a lot of 'yau cha kwai' and some clothings for the kids at the HOME too...

    To this splendid family, as we were busy with the haircuts, you left in a rush, Orchi missed the chance to thank you.

    On behalf of this HOME and the kids, Orchi wishes to convey many thanks for your generous offerings.

    As I have pointed, little little things counts a lot when it comes to doing charity work. My sister in law from Bandar Utama shops at Giant and quite often will buy some extras and pop over to drop them at the Home. We leave the bigger ones to those big boys. In the earlier thread, someone did mention that the Compassion Home here in Subang Jaya is rather very fortunate and in fact is being "overwhelmed" while others elsewhere are in a pitiful state. As far as we are concern, we believe in chariy begins at home. No point going too far and later have no follow ups - just like "hangat hangat tahi ayam."

    This weekend I was being told that Canon Marketing will be taking them up to Genting to see the play "Annie" as they are the main sponsor. Genting will sponsor the kids fully when they are in the theme park. Looks like these kids are having more fun than us!! As for the Putrajaya and Wetlands outing, we have decided to have it outside the school holidays as the place will be jammed pack and it will be no fun then. We will sit down and plan come the coming TT session which shld be on Sat 5 June which is also our King's Birthday.

    Hi pcYeoh - Despite what others have in their minds, Orchi has you to thank for offering this opportunity to work whatever Orchi can, in aid of this HOME. Awareness is the key. Orchi also hopes that more would join in for making some meaningful thingy to happen for these 'unfortunate' kids. Being with them even for a short while, makes Orchi realizes that what Orchi has been through in this life time is nothing when it comes to any comparisons with what these kids gotta faceup in their lives.

    Orchi is ignorant n naive, n has taken for granted, especially as to how Orchi has pampered the little Orchis..n Orchi has been wrong in the ways Orchi brings up Orchi's own boyz...

    The caretakers of this home, has mentioned to Orchi also at this HOME, they provide also the temporary shelter for abused wifes or adults, besides the kids.

    Hi - The 'FREE' haircuts session for the boyz at the HOME is done on last Sunday. The 'exercise' was quicker as the boys had shorter hairs naturally. Orchi hopes their earlier 'kutu' problem with their hair is under control after few applications of the 'ubat' by their HOME caretakers.

    Mind you these kids has gotten the 'kutu' from one another, after one of the girls has gotten the 'kutu' from her school previously.

    Orchi shall have this 'FREE' session going for the kids at this HOME like for as long as the service is required on monthly basis, thanks to pcYeoh again

    For those of you, who kindly wishes to contribute or has been contributing on regular basis, something of usefulness to these kids like reading materials, foodstuffs, or other necessities, from deep down of our hearts, THANK YOU VERY MUCH....

    Read in The Star yesterday that Compassion Home benefitted RM 50,000 from the charity program by TESCO. This money will come very handy as they have agreed to buy up the premise (corner lot) from the developer for RM300,000 (if I am not wrong) They also need to spend on renovation to take in more children. But we are not playing in this big league. Let the big corporate do that. Our involvement here is on the "software" side - involving our time and affort. I was told that their website will be launched soon so that you can visit them and get to know better without going thru us.

    Tesco donates to three charities

    HYPERMARKET retailer Tesco Stores (M) Sdn Bhd donated RM108,000 to three charity organisations under the Tesco Charity of the Year programme recently

    The funds were raised through various in-store activities.

    The Puchong, Mutiara Damansara and Klang Tesco Stores presented the cheques to Rumah Amal Cahaya Tengku Ampuan Rahimah (RACTAR), Compassion Home and Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Klang, respectively.

    The presentations mark the end of the stores’ one-year Corporate Responsibility Programme with the respective organisations.

    The Mutiara Damansara store’s general manager, Kennady Soosay, presented RM50,000 to Compassion Home.

    The vice-president of Rumah Kids (which runs Compassion Home), Pastor Roy Tan, received the cheque.

    About 20 residents of the home were also treated to a shopping spree at the store. They were each given a Tesco shopping voucher worth RM250.

    Tesco Puchong presented RM48,000 to Rumah Amal Cahaya Ampuan Rahimah (RACTAR).

    Its general manager, Daniel Thong, handed the cheque to home president Tengku Puteri Nor Zehan Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj.

    The residents also received shopping vouchers worth RM100 each.

    One of the founders of Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Cacat Klang, Datin Dr Mary Lee Siew Cheng, received a cheque for RM5,000 from a representative of Tesco Klang. The residents, too, were treated to a shopping spree worth RM5,000.

    “As a corporate citizen, Tesco believes in creating a better life for the community that we operate in. A strong community is not only beneficial to the members of the community but also to businesses and corporations in that area,” said the Tesco Stores Malaysia, marketing manager Vivian Yap.

    yahoo we're back online! it was a long time waiting & like what i wrote to jeff, it was "cold turkey" time!

    pc, i think the more appropriate word is "personware". so when r we doing a dry run for the wetlands outing? do keep us inform.
    What you have to do and the way you have to do it is incredibly simple.
    Whether you are willing to do it, that's another matter.
