Project Gift A Kid…

31 12 2008


We set out with a mission to gift underprivileged kids with back-to-school items so that they too can enjoy the excitement and motivation of a new school term.

With the support of our friends at the All Malaysian Bloggers Project, we managed to raise more than RM5700 – enough to gift 40 kids from SJK(T) Cheras and Rumah WAKE 1 (a home for HIV+ children) with a full set consisting of a pair of school uniforms (including footwear),  a school bag, 10 notebooks, a pencil box, and stationery (2B pencils, pens, eraser, ruler, scissors, glue, sharpener, pencil colours, highlighters and oil pastels). One generous sponsor also threw in some kids’ music CDs and High School Musical premium items.

The kids were happy and we were happy at seeing their shy smiles as they opened up the bags and overall, this was a project well done!

Movie Outing: The Spirit

27 12 2008

When? 27 December 2008, Where? GSC Midvalley
Report by Rtr David Lee

The Spirit

The movie we watched is The Spirit, the movie is based on the adaptation of a comic book by Will Eisner. The main reason we watched this film because of the director of the Frank Miller, who is famous for his writing work in Sin City and 300. The film is about a hero named The Spirit (who can’t be killed) trying to stop a mobster named Octopus from gaining the immortality and ultimate power.

But at the end of day, all of us were very disappointed of the film. I expected it to be as good as Sin City and 300. I personally think that this film is the worst film of the year, since we watched this film at the end of December 2008. There’s too much scenes on the film that doesn’t make sense. (Spoiler Alert) There’s one particular scene whereby a gypsy lady rescue The Spirit and later stab him with a sword with no reason, and then dancing and singing after doing that. After the movie, I warned my friends to not to watch this film.

So a lesson has been learn here, don’t expect much of movie direction from Frank Miller but try to gauge the quality film by his writing not his directing.

Red Ribbon Charity Walk

When? December 6, Where? Taman Midah, Cheras

Our joint-collaboration with UCSI University’s School of Nursing and the Pusat Rukun Tetangga Zon B Taman Midah, to raise awareness on HIV/AIDS (in conjunction with World AIDS Day) as well as fundraise in the benefit of Rumah WAKE 1 (a home for HIV+ kids) was a resounding success.

The 3km procession of 584 people bearing lit candles, banners and distributing pamphlets in the dark stopped traffic (with some help from the Police on duty) and drew crowds of onlookers. We’re glad that the message was spread so kudos to everyone who took part.
