Deepavali Charity

So today is Deepavali!
as an interactor of st.johns, i had to come and help out all the disabled folks from all over KL
Arrive in school at 7am!
they came to my school by their busses and vans, some vans had this machine for wheelchairs
which is cool because its my first time seeing it live :P
then had to push them to the front. Wheelchairs people are like VIP's
Today is their day :)
Then many busses starts coming in..
So far a total of 800people came..

and the guest of honor is Datuk L.Krishnan and his wife.
Im sorry i dont know who he is although he is a "Datuk"
I thought that he is a director or a film producer or anything that has to do with Malaysia.
My mind was vibrating :P
He came with an old stretched Merce. Nice ride btw :)
His wife is so so pretty. Fair skin and pretty!

I helped the old folks by assist them to the toilets and help the blinds as well.
For the womans, I had to take them to the female ones.
Its quite far from the tabernacle but they say its fine.
I felt pity for them to walk so far because they wanted to use the "seated" ones.
If they are fine with the hunker ones, i will take them to the male ones since its bigger and the nearest.

When 30% of people starts to wait for the event, I served them Milo's..

After all the people came in, i started serve the foods, it was Nasi minyak and Ayam!
It must be delicious since its cater from a mamak restaurants.
I cant eat that - on a diet :)
So I serve them, and its very chaotic because some of them wanted to bring back home,
i mean we got enough one for everyone, you know what i mean?
But at the end, we actually do have extras! we have bout 40 more..
I felt bad.. because they are disabled people and they cant even cook at home..
So.. i felt so bad.. sorry!!!

On the top of that! we serve drinks, Laboost cup-type drinks,
Got 1 row of indians haven't got the drinks, one woman asked me for the plain water and she said she felt very dizzy and wanted to take panadol.
I said, "Its finish but madam  sit down first, I tried to search for it"
So i went searching all around the tabernacle and found one! I was like "yes!"
It was in a "blind people" area, So i asked their permission and they let me have it.
Im so happy and ran back to the indian lady and gave it to her.
Her expression was like, "Oh My God! Thank You So Much"
She even said that.

Then, its ice-cream for everyone! It's twice the chaoticness because as you can see there's alot of childrens kept running and stealing the ice-cream from the box that im holding.
Its abit frustrating but we had alot back in the refrigerator! So its okay..
Serve Serve Serve.. some of them don't have spoons so i had to went back and take the spoons..
even the bus and van drivers come and take them from me. I was like..
"your not disable, can let me distribute this to your lovely passengers first before i gave them to you?"
They thought that the ice-cream would run out.
But i stayed calm because we do have alot of ice-cream.

Move on! i serve them Nescafe's but they wanted Milo's
Im like.. "Sorry Sorry Sorry" -_-
and the kids start to run and took them from the mini stalls..
They drank Nescafe's! Can you believe it?
I mean for 4 year old kid to drink Nescafe is not healthy!!
They would not give a shit!
Ahh nasiblah, for sure you guys would be fully awake malam ni.

Then its cake time! i did not distribute it since the CBNers would like to gave out ~
So I tried to let them sit and stay calm, because its Freakin HOT!
God its summer everyday in Malaysia.
Tourist how did you guys come and visit here?
I know its Truly Asia but still.. its HOT!

Then, Datuk L.Krishnan would like to gave out $$ for disabled people..
We had to ask them calmly to line up and the kids.. ooo my gahh!
running there and here.. Now i know how parents felt :)

I did not eat for lunch although i had cornflakes for breakfast at 6am.
It was very tiring and exhausting.. plus the canteen is closed!
Didnt bring water! gahh so thirsty.. Manage to find one cup of Laboost water underneath the boxes..
I felt like, i was bout to faint since i had asthma
But im like, What could've happen if i fall down? Chaotic moments! So i called my mum to pick me up at 12:30 at noon. It was Friday so had to went back home for Friday prayers.

My parents arrived and they brought cold water!
Im like, Thank God! and i drank the water without stopping..
Felt very refreshing!

I learnt my lesson today!
-Charity work is 30% fun, 50% tiring and 20% frustrating
-Standing underneath direct sun would gave you sunburn and 10% chances would gave you skin cancer so be careful!
-As an interactor, i felt were abit closer as in my interact members.
-Can wear jeans to school! or anywhere! :)
-Sweating is like normal
-Prepared tissues! a..lot!
-Bring bottled water! a big one!
-Life with no Facebook is something new.



You should try it! :)
