Groceries For the Needies - May 2014

Our monthly groceries for the needies, 1M1c sponsored Dr Azma's Projek Ringan Beban for 10 families in need. The families are all located in Klang and one in Puchong. Needless to say, the same modus operandi for every activity - prepurchase a day earlier and pack before the day. For this month, it started very early - 5th of the month, compared to Tony's month end.

The journey bring us to "new" places in Klang that I myself wont go in normal days.. but I guess, its normal for me nowadays.. ;) Our delivery date was 4th May 2014, Sunday 1000am...and I will let the picture tell the story...
