To Give Is To Receive (Day 2)

Yangon, Myanmar 

It has been really long since I last update my blog. Not that I am busy with life, I am just a little lazy in updating my traveling experience. I am trying my best to find back the motivation to blog to keep these fond memories so that I can show my children one day, “Hey, your mummy has been to this and so and so country.”

Alright.. Back to my Myanmar trip.. On the second day, we went to the wet market to buy the some ingredients to cook chicken rice for the kids.

These fruits and vegetables are HUGE.

There are many mosquitoes and so these kids have to keep fanning the chicken to keep these away mosquitoes away.

This is the kitchen in the orphanage and everything is very basic.

The children are happy because they receive some gifts from the sponsors.

And it is drawing time for the children! I like these Grade 1 children because they are the youngest and cutest in the home.

My two favorite cartoon character Mcdull and Doremon! 😀

This is drawn by yours truly, ME. HAHAHA! As you can see it yourself, I am really bad in art.

This is also drawn by me.

And I was a little surprised when she showed me her art piece. I didn’t know she has secretly followed me in drawing what I have drawn. They say a child express their thoughts   about life and emotions through drawing. I saw some drawings of a home and happy family by the children. My heart was aching a little.. I am sure there is no parents in this world who will want to leave their children and they must have their own reasons to do so.

She also tried drawing mcdull and doremon. Hehe! I think I have some “followers” in the home. HAHAHAHA… *Yah right*

You can be amazed by how talented some children are and most of them can draw better than me!

Our lunch – Chicken rice, one of our local specialties in Singapore cooked by our dedicated cooking team. 🙂

We also held a game carnival for the children to play and win some gifts.DSC_2887
