Long awaited entry.. lol

April 02, 2006

To victor: ok, okiez, okai.. caught ur glance, hints n everything else possible to urge me to type something..lol

Hm.. how should i start? (does it have to be in standard english?)

To me, Gift of Reading (GOR) is something very special, a name that holds great memories, efforts, hardwork, commitments and most importantly.. FRIENDSHIP!
Looking back, it has been less than 1 yr ago when we first met together as volunteers for GOR at the first ever GOR training camp at NACLI. At that time, I would never have expected GOR to have evolved to such a scale and to hold so many fond memories and experiences that we share today.

Right now, i can confidently say that GOR is not just a project, not just a commitment, not just an obligation to fulfil.. but something more, much much more. It has become an avenue where i learn new things every session, gain new experiences, find new satisfaction and most important of all, a place where i can find a sense of belonging, a place where many of my friends are, a place that holds great friendship:) It is no longer the CIP hours that pull us together, its the bond and satisfaction that holds us firmly together, wanting to achieve more in GOR.. This is something i really treasure:) N i'm sure everyone does!

Me, yida n kaihan are the few 'old' people who have seen GOR evolved, from an idea to a project, from primary school children to pre-sch kids, from serving the PCF kids to Taman Jurong kids.. many things have changed, many new friends have joined us, many improvements have been made.. but what hasn't change is the passion and the eagerness to see the kids every session and hope to see the *SMILES* spreading across the faces of each and every single one of them.. this passion just grows stronger...

hahaz.. now, even GOR has become more high-tech. Making use of blogs as means of communications ( what happened to our 2 hand-written diaries?? whoops.. lol) Hahaz.. really look forward to see more pictures of the happenings during our GOR session.. The only 'regret' i had over the past yr is not taking enough pictures and archiving those fond memories that we had together at GOR sessions. Hmm, maybe this will be a good avenue to start :)
