I know i m 2 old for all this! u know from the start, i didnt know why i had this feeling that had 2 attend even though it was clear i m 2 "old" for this! it was suppose 2 start on sept 16 6 pm but it was daddy n mummy’s anniversary n sis’s bday! I will never ever miss that 4 anything in the world! the camp is organised by a taiwan buddhist merit group called tzu chi. they said can go after my family dinner. I was suppose 2 stay over nit with them, then after dinner, I asked bro 2 send me there but he said asked dadddy, daddy asked who else is going, i said only me, he asked how about my friends i said no, just me only ;)) cannot imagine pei shan attending things like this! daddy said if me only better donw stay overnit, i cant see somemore. Then didnt go lo
the next morning, i waited for daddy n mummy 2 wake up to bring me 2 camp but they woke up quite late then i got phone call from them saying that they can pick me there. I really didnt know, why i had this feeling that i had to go. but by the time i went the came back from visiting the poor already!!! I did volunteering b4 with this group so my main aim for going back there is to be able to help and contribute more 2 the society! so the 1st thing that i join them for was the discussion after visiting this old lady. This group will go back as many times to investigate every case, till they are really sure that these ppl really need help. The old lady had no children, then being old her movement is limited. If her sis didnt bring her food she will not have food at all and she cant really clean herself. I only went 2 the discussion after the visit and i was in tears already hearing their stories, one of the girl that went cried really really badly. Basically we r divided in2 4 groups and visited 4 diff family or ppl that need the assitance from the society. 1 of them was the story of this old couple, really really happy couple despite the fact that they r dirt poor, the shack that they r living, when it rains, the shack will b flooded, the shack is so small already they actually kept a room 4 their son. They have no idea where is their son and their son just never bother 2 come back. Then there is another 1, a couple with 2 special children. When the wife passed away, is just the father and the 2 children didnt really know how 2 take care of themselves. when sth happened 2 us is always 4 a reason and once i heard those stories, i instantly know why i had 2 b in that camp. I had been taking mummy n daddy for grantted. in the afternoon there was this session where all of us are blind folded, then they played a radio play, there is once part where the son comes home everyday but the mum just couldnt talk to him because he is either 2 busy with work or going out his friends. wo kan tau ni the ren ke shi kan pu tao ni the xing. direct translation from mandrin, I can see you but I cannot see your heart. I hardly sit down and chat with mummy and daddy! And being typical asian parents, they dont tell you that they miss you they just keep quiet! So i m going to find time everyday to sit down and chat with my mummy and daddy.
;)) they said that got volunteering work this nov, so i m definately going to volunteer and since i know now that they do visit poor family, I ll join them!
