放风筝。

乌云密布 似乎随时落雨
风 不经意的吹
随性地 任意地 捉摸不定

风筝 挣脱了包装袋
简单的支架 肩负着绚丽 仍然轻盈
欲望着 展翅后的翱翔

线 似乎有些羁绊
但若没有了牵扯
风筝也升不了空
自由 不是毫无条件的

升空
需技巧 也需合作
探风速风向
一人试时机放风筝
一人放线时而拉扯
但 还是免不了
一头栽倒地上
的厄运

从失败中萌生
执着与不屈
一次又一次
沉着应战

终于 突围了
才发现 高处的风稳稳当当
线放完了
才晓得 天空如此浩翰无边

承载着的梦想
或坚守 或动摇 或放弃
或束缚 或放手一博
风固然重要
还需手中握着线的人
你的风筝
你要如何放?

Marina Barrage on 23rd May was fun.
Kite-flying was a first for many kids and even some volunteers too.
And it is interesting watching the kids fly kites. It reveals characters.

Greetings from Down Under...

hmm....this blog has died. haha:) no one updates anymore. maybe be'coz SHG has stopped for a while.

i am just so excited that the new year is starting and a new batch is coming in. *haiz* i may not see them graduate this time round, but i just can't wait to see you guys all again. 

maybe getting a bit nostalgic as i spend my last few weeks here in Melbourne missing the food, the people, the wonderful things in Singapore. i just wanna say Thank you guys for being such great friends and company for the last 2 years. hee:) a bit cliché but who cares?! hee:) it's just so me!

the last few days in Melbourne has been dreadfully hot at the temperature of 44˚C. To make matter worse, where i was staying has NO air-conditioning. PHEW! all i could do was to coop myself at home and watched TV (i'm glad that i have Foxtel, Melbourne's cable TV to entertain for the last few days. )

the weather has changed now; much cooler that i have to turn on the heater at night to keep myself warm and not freeze to death. how am i suppose to live in such drastic climate changes in the future?! I seriously starting to RECONSIDER my choice of coming back here in July. 

well, whatever it is, i am coming home soon. maybe i get to enjoy some last moments of CNY when i am touch down. Looking forward to meet you guys on Valentine's Day. Are we going out after that?

Anyone interested? Can send me your details so I can help collate if you guys want to do it together at the same date and place...

Dear Volunteers,

CDAC will be organising its annual “Ready for School” Project this year on two days at three locations:
