Another weekend was well spent. Giving back to society. Gathered one of my circle of friends, we devote our weekend at the Soup Kitchen helping in the preparation of food to feed about 3,000 + people on a daily basis. We’re happy to be part of the Willing Hearts Soup Kitchen. Founded by an amiable person – Mr Tony Tay. We were warmly welcome and during lunch we were given a red wine :). It was an amazing weekend. We thought of spending a day to give back in our own little ways, in return we have received much. Aside from lunch s a post celebration of Chinese New Year, a red wine and a tapao!!! 😉
In another organization where I volunteer my free time, I was asked about my thoughts on volunteerism. I shared my belief that we are mere stewards here on Earth and that everyone has a duty to serve humanity in anyway we can. Thus, when an opportunity is presented to us regardless of where we are in this part of the world, go for it.
What we have done maybe like a small thing. But I remember Aesop’s Fable that “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
I encourage anyone who would come across this post, if you are considering of doing something for your community during your free time, you can just walk in or visit the Soup Kitchen anytime of the day from 6am – 4pm. They are open as early as 4.30am! Soup Kitchen location is at:
