Happy 64th Merdeka Day!

Our beloved country has come a long way since its independence in 1957. We have become very famous for our tourism, great local food and all the wrong reasons too. It has made me tired of reading any political news as frog jumping has become a culture now.



The Covid19 pandemic has brought much misery and suffering to everyone in our country. Lives have been lost and income has become zero for many of us. Yet the politicians are busy counting numbers and numbers from their seats to the daily cases. When shall we see light at the end of this dark tunnel??

While I am still praying everyday for a better tomorrow, we still have to think of those who are hungry and sickly. 



I woke up at 6.00am to help and cut vegetables. In conjunction with the 64th Merdeka Day, this team had decided to donate over 60 packets of lunch packs and a truckload of groceries to another Old Folks Home and Orphanage. 



We have gotten smarter and bought a huge rice cooker this round. No need to cook 3 rounds using the small rice cooker like the first time. It saved so much time to scoop piping hot rice and dishes. My wife cooked soya sauce chicken wings, tofu minced meat and mixed vegetables for over 60! 



All the happy faces at the Charity Home and Orphanage. May this Merdeka Day bring good health and joy to everyone!

    1. Good idea! I should delivery rice packs to private homes since our rice cooker is so huge. I am getting more worried about the welfare of the old folks homes and orphanages. No one on earth could have imagined the pandemic of this scale could happen.

    1. Thank you very much for your kind wishes. It is easy to cook for over 100 people too, when there is a will, there is always a way. My wife has several huge woks and that helped a lot.

  5. The world is suffering, and helping each other is what we could do... and you guys are doing the best. India is 10 years ahead of you in independence, and politicians are the same everywhere, and people come only secondary in their political business. There's nothing like feeding those in starve and make some smiling faces. The children in the photo look like they came from Indian parents.

    1. It is true that our whole world is suffering everyday! So many homeless people in America and so many refugees in Afghanistan are fleeing now in chaotic situation. The Covid is sweeping across the world with no end in sight.

      Here the homes for the orphans and old folks are sadly neglected with food supplies drying up. We will try to help in whatever we can always. That orphanage happens to have many Indian children while other homes might have more Chinese or Malays.

    1. As long as there's SOP and masks worn, they would gladly welcome any donors. Many homes are suffering now. Please help in anyway you can. Thank you for your kind words.

    1. Earlier round was 80 and now it is 60 in another home. We will do our best even if it is 100. People are hungry out there. You cook so well and can contribute too.

  14. What you, your wife and team did is the true Merdeka spirit. Many charity homes and orphanages are running low on funds due to reduced donation. Not easy to plan and cook for 60. All the hard work is worth it when you see the smiles and happy faces. Bless your kind hearts.
