Hubby's office organised a trip to Old Folk Home (Rumah Seri Kenangan Sibu) yesterday morning so me and kids (except baby) followed along. Thought it is a good exposure for the kids to visit the home.
The first and last trip I have been to an Old Folks Home was during my secondary school. You can say, this type of visit was never a cheerful thing and you tend to go home with rather heavy and sorrowful heart.
Everything is basic and rather old in Old Folks Home. The occupants depend on volunteers to take care and feed them.
While they enjoyed their lunch, one of hubby's staff entertained them with songs. And this couple was very sporting to go up to the stage and sang and danced as well.
The next trip hubby is going to bring some water heater and washing machine over. Very sad when hear that there is no hot water heater or washing machine in the home. Sigh! Hope our visit brought some cheers to the old folks. I guess they enjoyed the companionship and some goodies as at the end we were entertained to a karaoke session by an old lady there.
