The elderly volunteers were intrigued by the idea of “going back to school” when the establishment of the Elders’ Enrichment Centre was announced. They were curious: What are the classes on offer? How would it feel like being a student again, decades after bidding our schooling days goodbye?

“It has been a long time since we last celebrated Chinese New Year by spring cleaning, painting the house and decorating it with lanterns. I am very delighted; so is my mother,” admitted Lim Moi’s youngest daughter, Hon Yon Heong timidly, indirectly expressing her gratitude towards Tzu Chi volunteers for their goodwill.

At the year-end distribution event, some attendees bravely shared their heartfelt sentiments on-stage, while others presented a “Thank You” card as a token of gratitude to those who matter in their life. A loving hug wipes away tears and bitter memories of the past that have been long kept to oneself. The company of others helps us to better deal with the low points in our life.

Tzu Chi KL & Selangor hosted 15 sessions of the annual Year-end Blessing Ceremony between December 2018 and January 2019. It was a time primarily for self reflection, a time to express our gratitude to those who have helped us and also gratitude to those who have given us the opportunity to help them. The highlight of this ceremony was receiving Master Cheng Yen’s red envelope of blessings and wisdom for the year ahead.
