Short Note: Happy 1-day-late Valentines Everyone!
Valentines is finally over two hours ago as the clock struck midnight.
It was just another day for single people like me. If you want to know, I had a quiet dinner in Puchong and came back shortly to continue on my … erm… work.
All was fine because you know what? I have spent my V-day a day earlier making dates with 136 kids. It was awesome and I couldn’t ask for more.
12th Feb – the Collection Pick Up Meeting in front of Marcos
wasn’t a pleasing response. Out of the 20 people who gave words to come didn’t show up, but the contributions were none-the-less far beyond expectation.
Some gave cash, some gave milk powders, but Jacky Chin (nicknamed Chubby Chin) made it all up.
With an impressive amount of contributions, I don’t even know where to start describe my first reaction when I saw his boot, I was blown away. All I remembered was 60cans of baked beans and boxes upon boxes of Cintan Mee. LOL (is there a box of eggs too?)
Among the odd stuff given were an automatic boat toy, a trolley bag, branded polo shirts, and this very cute doggy.
I also went shopping that afternoon to get some candies for the kids.
Amounting to RM153.
Wow a, that’s a lot of candies.
13th Feb – Day of Visit
Finally it was the day to visit the orphans and I have some remaining things to do.
Because it was Chinese New Year, I decided to celebrate CNY with the kids by giving each of every one of them Ang Pows as allowances (according to the orphanage owner, some of these kids who are able have their own bank accounts and for those unable ones, they share a combined account).
So I have to head to the bank to change into smaller notes, also to collect some ang pows packets.
When I first posted an entry asking for help, I didn’t expect much. It was an innocent act with no intention to gather anything more than two bags of rice or maybe 10 cans of cookies.
But then as emails started pouring in from all around Malaysia and even the world, and as money and contributions started flowing in. Things slightly got out of hand.
The contributions collected mounted up to three cars full.
And I couldn’t have done it without the help of everyone out there who showed support to this charity, financially, materialistically, or physically, or all.
However, I would like to share the most of this credit with the one person who helped me made it all happened.
Meet my partner in crime.
Half of the contributions you have seen were from his network of friends, and thanks to him, he helped me chauffeur the things here and there when my car was full and out of hand.
And yes, that’s cold hard cash in our hands.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the money raised for this event from what was a small entry has exceeded a total of RM3400.
I was rich for a day.
sorry, couldn't resist
It was only up till this point that I realized how easy enough to just take the money and put them in my pocket. Made me realized why money was never seen once passed through many fund raising organizations out there.
It was tempting, a lot of cash, but most importantly, no one will know.
But I’m a person of strong karma belief. And taking money of the needy will have karma hitting HARD on you. So yes, idea abandoned as fast as it came before you can say "what?! RM3400!!!"
Putting RM5 into ang pows and receiving calls from various readers who joined for the visit that day
Now~~~~ it’s time to visit! (next post)
