Groceries for the Needies with Reach Out KL (Deepavali Special) - Nov 2013

For November groceries for the needies, we have Reach Out Malaysia (Wednesday team) to sponsor the event. For once, Tony and myself were excused from purchasing and carrying the groceries.. phew! Groceries were pre-purchased in Selayang, packed and delivered to Klang on the hot Sunday afternoon. We congregate at Hokkien Association Klang, waiting for volunteers to arrived. With a large convoy, we car pooled to ensure we wont get lost.. which we did anyway.. :P

Special thanks to ROM Wed Team for planning everything - from purchasing to packing and arranging the transport for the delivery.

TQ for the 3 ton lorry ~ else...

The groceries to be given to each of the home. For this month's Deepavali special, we have food worth RM200 ~ double the amoutn from our monthly amount. TQ to all sponsors.

With a 3 ton lorry, we can carry anything, anyone..anywhere.. :P

Arriving at our first home, we waste no time unloading the groceries.

Er.. how many people do you need to change the light bulb...
