Volunteer Work

My exercise kaki, on our group chat, was asking around for volunteers to help out in a CNY Old Folks Home visit. 

On reaching the Old Folks Home on the day itself, we were given briefing, our job is to wheel the elderly Uncle or Auntie to the garden to watch lion dance, dragon dance and to receive mandarin orange and an ang pao.  For privately reason, we were brief not to take picture of the elderly Uncle or Auntie.

As it so happen there is enough people to wheel the elderly Uncle or Auntie, i only help out to distribute the mandarin orange and ang pao to them.  And since i need not wheel, i was free to walk about and take picture.


(1) For the lion dance


(2) 2 mandarin oranges and an ang pao for the elderly, don't ask me the amount inside the ang pao, i do not know.


(3) At the pavilion


(4) Total, there are two lion dance, this is one of them


(5) The other one


(6) Drummer for the lion dance


(7) In the midst of the lion dance


(8)

(10) 猴爷 is there to greet the elderly
