Caring’s day

Have been considered for a few days, finally, I decide to join this activity.

Sunday morning, I woke up around 6am, waiting for 199-bus, and then taking MRT to Chinatown.

Afterward, a senior, Jie Ting, accompanied me to a residential area that is lived by those old folks that living alone. Singapore government has provided them a single unit in those 21-storeys flat, with S$100 allowance monthly. The environment in the flat is similar to the scene in the Hong Kong drama series. Compare to those homeless old folks, they are luckier.

看着女儿在图画纸与墙上的涂鸦(印度人的习俗,家人有逝世的一年内,不能翻新屋子),我在想:女儿以后是否能成为一个画家呢?我不知道,只希望每周的复诊能让她好起来,至少让她活得更扎实。“妈妈你要坚强哦!”,我们都在卡片上祝福道。临走前,女儿还调皮地要求妈妈向我们拥抱致谢。

“Thanks Dear.We are very happy……”
我回妈妈说:“We too! Thanks.”
何尝不是吗?感恩户。
