Update: Year End Events

Good morning. The office will be busy the next two weeks preparing for our end of year events. Our staff and interns have been individually assigned to lead on specific events.

Megan has been put in charge of our Star Wars movie fundraiser on the 19th of December. She and Abigail will be calling and visiting donors in the next few days to sell our remaining 80 movie tickets. We have sold about 220 tickets so far.

Abigail, our diva and social director will be in charge of planning the year end thanksgiving lunch with YB Hannah’s office. My office do this every year to commemorate how Hannah Yeoh and her wonderful team helped us setup our office in 2013 and also to thank them for all their support and cooperation in 2017. Last year, we had Thai food; this year Abigail is not saying what we will makan. We also have our own office party dinner at my house for volunteers to thank them for their year long free service. I guess, Abigail will also be in charge of this and the interns are expected to play the piano and sing.

We also have our annual office day trip. Last year, we went to Broga hills and had lunch at a fish farm. This year, TIna is in charge of organising a caving trip to Gua Tempurung followed by a lunch at Lawan Kuda.

Lastly, all the interns and staff are working together on our new experimental community outreach program this Saturday. We had very good success with the family portraits project a few months ago. Now we are gonna try to roll out a talk on practical financial planning for the poor, provide advice on how to reduce utility bills and lastly demonstrate preventive fire safety measures for the low cost flat environment. We will be holding the community event in Block 5 of the urban poor area of Desa Mentari. If the project is successful, we will be replicating this more widely to other urban poor areas.
