Right after the pageant was over, Christy and I went to visit the Myanmar kids (under START Foundation) in Puchong. These kids are very friendly and super adorable! I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
They have very little to eat — their meal usually consists of white rice with curry gravy or baked beans or just cili padi. No protein, no vegetables as the shelter cannot afford it.
We brought nuggets and chicken meatballs for the kids when we visited them last week. The kids are well behaved. They don’t push each other (unless it’s a playful thing)…and they line up patiently for their food. And they always say their ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. Some of the kids have never eaten nuggets before…and they looked at the nuggets as though they were foreign objects.
Christy opened my eyes to a whole new world. She taught me a lot of things about kids; how to deal with them, how to understand them better and how to discipline them when they misbehave.
Because they can’t go to school, the kids go to the shelter to learn English, Science and Math. Fung and Daniel are based in the shelter in Puchong, so they do most of the teaching. The shelter needs more resources (books, instruments, stationeries, FOOD…etc) for the children, so if any of you are interested in helping, drop me an email!
I also want to thank one of my readers (who wants to remain anonymous) for helping us out, money-wise. Christy and I are very grateful for your generosity.
