In conjunction with Waikiki PJ's 16th Anniversary.... A Wholesome Family Fiesta to raise funds for poor families whose critically ill children are at Oncology Paediatrics/cancer wards. Waikiki and the entire club, PJ Palms will be working together to make things happen from hopefully 11am....swimming, food stalls, activities/games, clowns, magicians and special acts. Live bands will perform at Waikiki Bar in the afternoon; with live feed to the club! There'll be something for everyone...young and and the not so young! And if you wondering how this came about....do take a look at an excerpt of Tony Siew's latest post. My sad story for today was meeting a middle aged family at the same ward, whose 12 year old son has also been admitted for Leukemia. What was horrifying was that, the boy was in remission for the past 9 years. I hate it when reality slaps you so hard and you just become utterly speecless. The father had this look of complete disbelief which i can so relate too and he also lamented that he wasn't too well off and worried bout the bills..................deja vu. Well, abang, kakak and other 'under financed' families in ward 5, I truly feel and understand your pain and burdens. I would like to pass on the same kind of hope and help that was so graciously given to me by my dear dear friends. November 18th ( sunday ) will be Waikiki's 16th Anniversary and as usual (god willing ), a charity event will be held. This has been our tradition for the past few years in conjunction with our 'Tribute to kindness', an ongoing project to help the needy. Will need to sit and listen to feedbacks to sort out what i'm gonna do and this one might be be on a larger scale... Once again, i'm calling out to our Waikiki angels for help, for without them, it's a job to much for me to handle alone. This years recipients will be for the poor families in the cancer ward. I will liase with my primary school mate Margerat , who's also attached to the ward to find out how we may help them. As it being a hospital, there's a huge amount of red tape as it involves patients and money. I nearly had a problem just trying to bring in a clown !! Any suggestions on how to make this as uncomplicated as possible ?, especially with the hospital. * Apologies but some text has been amended by me for the reason that this event is not sanctioned by the facility. Names have also been altered to protect the privacy of individuals... Please understand that all we're trying to do is help as best and efficiently as we can, without having to handle bureaucratic departments and tons of red tape. My plan is to start from here, go in through the 'backdoor' of the facility, hand the money to the families, document it with a few photos and get out without anyone knowing what's happening. Fast, clean and simple. On behalf of the families, i would like to say.. Terima Kasih, Seah Seah, Nandri and Thank You. Wish me luck!!
