Volunteer Taichi At Thye Hua Kwan Hospital

Every Friday commenced from 7 Dec 12, we head to Thye Hua Kwan Hospital Ang Mo Kio to teach the wheelchair bounded patients seated taichi, hoping that they enjoy the benefit of taichi despite their less mobility.

It is really encouraging and inspiring to feel the keenness of the patient, they are delighted and looking forward to the taichi session every Friday. 4 of us (Siew Hua, Lin Ho, Amanda and me) enjoy the hour with them, seeing them with smiling face and endless thank you at the end of every session and their improvement over a period of time. We are thinking of some new idea to improve the movement to make it fun and enjoyable.
We welcome whoever interested in volunteer work to come forword, we hope to strengthen our volunteer team.

Volunteer Taichi for Elderly - Citycare at Blk 8 North Bridge Rd

Through Citycare, we (Philip, David, Amanda and me) was invited to conduct a volunteer taichi session for elderly nearby Blk 8 North Bridge Road. There are elderly of Malay and Indian community, but surprisingly they enjoy the taichi session too. I am so happy that my little knowledge of Malay coversation did a great job here and the people are happy to share more Malay term with me while we share our taichi knowledge with them.

很高兴有机会和一群乐龄朋友们分享太极拳, 他们也很积极的学习。一群马来和印度同胞很可爱,很久没有机会讲马来语,已经蛮生疏了,刚好利用这个机会和他们沟通,重新学习一些马来字眼。一个钟头很快过去了, 好几个朋友很喜欢这个活动, 希望我们还能够回去教导他们。能和多点人分享太极是一项快乐的活动。
