14 SEP 2012: Talk on Social Entrepreneurship at SMU

Alvin was invited to speak to students at the Singapore Management University about Social Entrepreneurship.

It is wonderful to see so many young university students who are keen to take on social causes and start social enterprises.

Alvin shared his experience at the Children's Garden Home in Nairobi, Kenya, and the creation of the social enterprise brand Little Fingy's.

16 SEP 2012: Family Gathering at Yew Tee

Family gathering at Yew Tee

It's our turn to host the Yongs so we held an eat-all-you-can buffet at our home - Grandparents, Uncle Melvin's, Aunt Janet's, Aunt Hellen's families, and two GrandAunts joined in the fun.

Robyn presented her fried rice debut and it was fabulous! We ordered popiah, kueh party and koro buns from Fortune Food, and everyone enjoyed them.

22-24 SEP 2012: Yiku's Wedding in KL

Alvin drove grandparents and little Gaven up to KL to attend cousin Yuki's wedding. They stopped over at Taiping for lunch and grandpa discovered, again, that his new pair of shoes bought in China were 'disintegrating'! Grandpa has a record of spoiling his shoes and buying new shoes while on holidays! So the first place that we visited in this trip was a shoe shop in Taiping!
