It looks like some ordinary flowers.
But No, it wasn’t like any other.
These were flowers that were cut out using plastic waterbottles and then being coated with colourful paint.
She was so proud of it that she insist having all of us to take photo of it 😉
That moment was touching, but warming.
Yesterday, (20/1/2013) I went for this volunteering event with a few of my friends.It was the first volunteer work I am doing since the start of 2013, good start huh? xD
We helped to pack the food and daily necessity and brought to some elderly’s houses.
It was a really eye-opener for us because it is like we haven’t really have such experience before. All of them were pretty friendly and some were so cute.
One even told me, ” You have a pretty name. And Pretty name are for nice people.”
It was really heartwarming for me to hear that.
And I really felt the describable warmth despite the cold and rainy weather.
Not only that, I was surprised at the Projects people initiated in our country, and yes, by youngsters. There were also many more volunteers than what I expected. 😉
But I’m grateful for those people who have used their efforts to actually help those who in need. I’m glad and I’m thankful.
Another new year resolution: help even more people with the small hands of ours.
Because I know I can contribute, I therefore believe I can volunteer my contribution.

And we make it happen. 🙂
