Chinese New Year is about reunion and giving blessings to everyone. On a Saturday afternoon before the festival came, eight Arupians joined a community service organised by A Drop of Life to spread love and happiness to the ex-mentally ill or mentally handicapped residents at a rehabilitation centre in Tuen Mun.
Before the visit, we packed and prepared 130 goodie bags, sponsored by the firm, for the residents with food, commodities and fai chun (揮春). During the visit, we played games and sang karaoke with the residents. We also made the Chinese New Year sticky rice cake (年糕) with them and tasted the cooked product. All of us had a fun time and interesting chats with the residents hearing about their life stories.
