Residents of the Asrama Bintang Convent of the Infant Jesus, home for the aged, disabled women, felt greatly honoured when they were feted to a buffet dinner recently. OMA committee members, headed by Mr Adrian Tsen, played host to some 35 inmates, treating them to an array of Oriental and Western dishes.
This gesture of appreciation has been an on-going affair for some ten years. Mr Chow Wai Hong, who organised the get-together, said the old folks need to be shown affection and love, and one way to do it is to eat and drink together with them.
Michaelians always have soft spot for the lost, the least and the last. That was the value taught by the Brothers and glad that the ideals have not changed over the decades.
Note: The home is located behind Main Convent School, opposite St Michael's Church.
