Penang, 3rd February 2013 — About 40 bloggers and public visited the Penang Shan Children’s Home to distribute food, beverages and gadgets, sponsored by various commercial entities. It’s a philanthropic exercise not only by businesses in executing their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) but by everyone to give back to the society, thus making life more bearable for everyone in need.


The event is made possible by Crowdpot Sdn Bhd (Event Organizer), Ninetology Malaysia, SUBWAY® (Suntech, iAvenue, & Leith Street branches), Chatime Malaysia, Langkawi Saga Travel & Tours Sdn. Bhd. and Alextan Artworks.


Penang Shan Children’s Home (PSCH) began as a dream and initiative of Dr. S Balakrishnan in the year 2005. This is a non-religious and a non-profit, non-governmental organization catering to the needs of orphans, neglected children, dysfunctional families and single parents. The home was built and officially launched on 14th December 2008 by Madam Chan Siew Har.


PSCH’s mission is to maximize the attractive opportunities that are stored in the children; to make something happen; to change the ways that things are and to create something that no one else has ever created before for the children, to explore for opportunities; to provide guidance and course correction; maintaining focus on being consistent and persistent. The objectives are both short and on a long term basis. The short term objective is to provide all the children with a safe and supportive environment. The focus will be on the development of physical, mental, emotional, educational, social and recreational skills that will create awareness to structure and mould the child’s future. The longer term development includes the options that are available for the child’s future, supporting them to complete the tertiary education preferably to University level. For those who are unable to complete the basic education, they would be trained in developing their skills by educating them in skill training centers. Through home visits and working with parents, they would like to ensure that eventually the child is reunited with his/her family thus becoming the backbone of the family.

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?

Having the ability to travel during this festive season can be a privilege for many of us but have you thought of making the lives of many children in your vacation destination happier during this Christmas season? No doubt you can’t bring snow to share with the children from the sunny and sandy beaches of Mexico but you can bring some extra toys or items that could make the less fortunate in Mexico happier, particularly the kids. Whether it’s Christmas or not celebrated in other states in the country, being soft hearted in the needs of other less fortunate would fulfill the sharing and caring of the Christmas spirits.

I would be checking in one of the isla mujeres hotels in Cancun, Mexico this holiday season and I hope I can put some smiles on the faces of some of the Mexican children surrounding the area such as those from Mayan Riviera, Puerto Morales, Playa del Carmen and in Talum as well. Children are the pillars and strength of our future, thus they should also have the privileges of being educated with proper educational items such as coloring books, crayons, markers and anything that would unleash their creativity in building a stronger nation.

While I am there, I surely won’t forgo the beautiful beaches along the coastline of Quintana Roo. Scuba diving would be in my itinerary to explore the wonders of the many coral reefs. Let’s hope I have the luck to encounter the much endangered sea turtle. Of course I also won’t want to miss out my favorite tamales, tortillas and gorditas. I hope I can bear the spiciness of the chipotle, the smoke-dried jalapeño chili more this time.

The days of painting the bedrooms colorful with basic interior decorations no longer would amuse the children of today. With all the easy access channels such as the Disney Channel, Nickelodean and Cartoon Network, the children of today rather link their bedrooms to their favorite characters. What would you do as the parents of the modern generations? Would you spend thousands of dollars to renovate their bedrooms for the sake of love or would you just make do with your available resources to spruce up their bedrooms?









As for me, I would choose the latter as it would save up a large amount during this present economy downturn. All you need to do is to spruce up the place with a new coat of paint or wallpaper, preferably as how your child’s cartoon character colors would look like. With a little bit more of creativity, you would be able to turn their bedrooms into another Disneyland.









For instance, if your child is into Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, you might want to blend in yellow wallpaper with some orange furniture and some easy to make frames on the wall. It would not cost much too by getting all those items. So, put on your thinking cap now and start creating something that your child would like to have.
