BLOGGERS HELP TO SPREAD LOVE FOR THE CHILDREN AT THE PENANG SHAN CHILDREN’S HOME ASSOCIATION


Penang, 3rd February 2013 — About 40 bloggers and public visited the Penang Shan Children’s Home to distribute food, beverages and gadgets, sponsored by various commercial entities. It’s a philanthropic exercise not only by businesses in executing their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) but by everyone to give back to the society, thus making life more bearable for everyone in need.

Penang Shan Children’s Home (PSCH) began as a dream and initiative of Dr. S Balakrishnan in the year 2005. This is a non-religious and a non-profit, non-governmental organization catering to the needs of orphans, neglected children, dysfunctional families and single parents. The home was built and officially launched on 14th December 2008 by Madam Chan Siew Har.
PSHA03
PSCH’s mission is to maximize the attractive opportunities that are stored in the children; to make something happen; to change the ways that things are and to create something that no one else has ever created before for the children, to explore for opportunities; to provide guidance and course correction; maintaining focus on being consistent and persistent. The objectives are bothshort and on a long term basis. The short term objective is to provide all the children with a safe and supportive environment. The focus will be on the development of physical, mental, emotional, educational, social and recreational skills that will create awareness to structure and mould the child’s future. The longer term development includes the options that are available for the child’s future, supporting them to complete the tertiary education preferably to University level. For those who are unable to complete the basic education, they would be trained in developing their skills by educating them in skill training centers. Through home visits and working with parents, they would like to ensure that eventually the child is reunited with his/her family thus becoming the backbone of the family.

Art Blog

My 7 years old son love to draw so much and I decided to start off a blog for him. An artist who is also his teacher encouraged me to create a blog for him to keep all his art.

Delwin, started to draw when he is about 3+ with some guidance from hubby. Slowly, he love drawing so much. Initially, we buy him reams and reams of A4 papers from the bookshops. Sometimes, he will use about 4 - 5 reams of papers per month. Then, we have to find ways to cut down his usage. So, we decided to cut the A4 paper into half because there are times he only draw an animal and he will not use the empty place. Wherever we go, we will bring paper and pen along coz he will draw when we are not doing anything. Now, my 5 years old daughter is being influence by him. She is not a born artist but rather a follower. She just want to join in the fun with the big brother.





Does he look like an artist? Aiyoh!!! Mum & Dad also confuse liau. But, we want to motivate him. It may be a way for him to release his tention and it might be his hobby. Who knows, he will use his skill for something in the future. Everyone have got a way to release their tention, right?


She loves to draw because of her big brother. Whenever the brother is drawing, she will also ask for pen and paper to join in the fun. To be fair, we also send her for art class. Yes, both of them are under the guidance of an artist.
