Movie and Lunch Date with the Kids of Darul Ihsan

I am all excited now! Sunday comes in 2 days time .. hmm .. 1 day to be precise (the clock shows 3.12 am now)!! Some 20 volunteers, mostly blogmates whom I met online and have never met face to face before are going to bring 45 kids from Darul Ihsan to watch a movie and have lunch!

We are going to watch Ratatouille at Shaw Prince Cinema before heading down to Arab Street to lunch at Cafe le Caire. But before lunch we will go to the nearby Sultan Mosque for prayers.

I am amazed what blogger can do - I got to meet the most beautiful people .. these really big hearted people - their support, their efforts, their contributions .. whoa .. i am just speechless.

We have generous people who gave cash donations, a restaurant which charges S$6 per pax for lunch and also received full sponsorship of S$800 from a law firm - good job Shaz and Aidil!

We are also doing a personalised goodie bag for the kids too. My instant reaction when I heard about the goodie bags was to contribute something .. and I did what I do best - bake cookies! In fact, I am just done with baking and packing all of the cookies .. hehehe

I may not bake the most delicious and yummilicious cookies but I do hope that the kids appreciate and enjoy it nonetheless!

These cookies will go to Eja aka the goodie bag girl later today!

For now, I shall wait patiently for Sunday to come, to have a terrific time with the kids .. to bond and to get to know them better!

PS - Thanks lil sis for coming by to help me pack the cookies. Your assistance is very much appreciated! What?!?!? Ice cream treat?!?!?! Okay!
