关于昨天,这就是传说中的风雨无阻#RBKD 一条心吗? 因为#RuiEn 的生日,我们在德义区服务了七个农历年。打从乐龄活动中心尚未正式开张,资源较有限时开始到现在有更多、更有财力的大企业CSR陆续为这里的乐龄们服务。我们是时候功成身退,前往另一个资源有限,也同样需要帮助的地方服务了。 德义区的301位老人家们,虽然7年来我们都没告诉你们我们的身份,但你们都凭着我们衬衫上的❤记着我们,称我们为“爱心队”,期待我们每年为您换上最新一年的新年装饰。所以明年我们还是会照旧为你们送去新年装饰,以表祝福。新年快乐!😊

What: 2016-17 Countdown

When: 31 December 2016

Where: Labrador Park

Bi Hui, participant:

What can my end / beginning of the year be like when there is no event to attend? That was probably my thought as I was too used to going to Rui En’s countdown event, and celebrating it with RBKD members for the past few years. Then came a message asking me, whether if I’m available to countdown with the rest at a park…

Fast forward to the day of countdown, the festive mood was there, and I am glad, I’m celebrating the New Year with RBKD members! It was a little special since it was my first time celebrating at a park, and going to a park around 10pm till 12am. I wouldn’t have done that in my life if it was just me hahahaha!

What really amazed me was how many people gathered at the same place to celebrate the new year, and the best was when we could see fireworks from 2 places…for free! As we started to settle down after taking pictures of the fireworks, suddenly, we heard an unfamiliar sound, and soon after we saw something that was shot to the sky (we could just see the smoke), then a few seconds later, a few red balls.

“What is that red thing in the sky?”….
B:”hmmm…I think it’s kites with lights on them”
C:”Wait…I think I saw some smoke trails…”
………
B:”OMG IT SEEMED LIKE IT’S COMING CLOSER TO US!!”
*after a long break and staring at the red balls”
A:”I think that is the SOS signal from the boats. Probably shot just for the New Year.”
B, C and the rest “Ohhhh….”

That was my first time seeing the SOS signal.

Xinyi, participant:

This was our first countdown in 10 years without Rui En or RBKD. So we decided to hang out together, for a quiet session, after so many loud ones all these years. Yea, where in Singapore can we find a quiet place for countdown? That’s what Rui En said too.

Nonetheless, we went to Labrador park as we thought it would be quieter and there’s still fireworks at midnight. True enough, the crowd present obviously thought the same as us. So the usual story goes for any “quiet countdown”.

The interesting thing was when we saw red lights rising steadily towards the skies, from where the yachts are berthed. “Is that a drone?” “What’s up? Why is the drone only going up?”

Took us a good few minutes before we realised they were red flares, shot from the emergency distress gun of a yacht owner, amidst all the honking at 12 midnight. Guess, we learnt something?

Ended with a quick supper at McDonald’s after a long walk in almost total darkness along the 1km boardwalk towards the MRT. Everything was so simple and quiet, it was just peaceful and perhaps, a little memorable too.

What: Annual Giving (Volunteering) – Art Jamming

When: 12 November 2016

Where: AWWA

Participants: Allan, Bi Hui, Candice, Ernie, Jiamin, Joanne, Jolie, Jonah, Junqi, Lixian, Madeline, Phyllis, Shuwen, Rui En, Xin Jie, Xinyi, Yanling, Yeeling

Ernie, Participant:

Prior to the event, I have not painted on canvas before. I was not sure what to expect. Luckily we had trial runs and it wasn’t too difficult.

During the events, kids were allowed to draw anything they wanted. And kids being kids, where latest fads catch on them, majority of them wanted to draw the characters from Pokemons, such as pikachu, mega charizard and the likes.

I didn’t want to influence their train of thoughts so I let the kids assigned to me draw anything they want. I was more than happy to mix the paint colours to whatever they want – brown, peach, lime green and so on.

While waiting for the paintings to dry, we played bingo. What started as calm turned into chaos when everyone started shouting “Bingo!”

We ended the event by giving out their paintings and goodie bags. It was a tiring but fun event!

Xin Jie, Participant:

Frankly speaking, I was hesitant & filled with apprehension when I first signed up for the event. I didn’t know what to expect for art & me don’t go well together. I can’t draw for arts and just the thought of having to draw during the art jamming session or draw alongside with the kids drove me nuts.

Came the day which I didn’t know what to expect. However, we were time tight and everyone was doing the best to be efficient to get everything ready. I forgotten all about my “drawing fears”.

Then came the time when the kids arrived, I was introduced to the kid I would be partnering with. I soon found out from him what he wanted to draw: tables, and he wanted to paint in his favourite colour; orange. I had a great time watching him art jam & gave slight help when needed. Sure, there were moments when coaxing him got a little trying & I couldn’t manage well in that aspect. However, what matters more though was we both had fun during the art jamming – he was all smiles & laughter when he did an abstract painting with his favourite colour, orange.

This is my first time in an art jamming event (with RBKD). Being able to interact & bond with children through a drawing-painting session is a unique & refreshing experience.

What: C.L.I.F. 4 Screening

When: 27 August 2016

Where: MES Theatre @ Mediacorp

Xinyi, Club President:

The C.L.I.F. 4’s premiere was our first experience at MES theatre and it brings back a lot of memories as this was Rui En’s third C.L.I.F. project.

I recall how we envied the actors involved in C.L.I.F. 1 because it was so awesome seeing SPF (Singapore Police Force) going all out to support a local police drama. Many of us were big fans of this theme, if only Rui En could be in it too.

And our wish came through in C.L.I.F. 2. Watching C.L.I.F. 4 was like a journey that we have been through with the characters, it’s almost like we were part of the team as well. Enjoyable, certainly.

Not to forget the very generous and interesting collaterals, especially the magazines and posters. Till the next!

#RBKD at #Mediacorp for #CLIF4's special screening! Catch #RuiEn as INSP Huang Zhijie in #CLIF4 from 6Sep on @ch8sg at 9pm! Swag ah swag! 😘😘😘 #BabyCara aka #BabyMathew makes her/his debut appearance in ep1, so cute! 😍😍😍

What: Badminton IPC

When: 16 July 2016

Where: Ngee Ann Poly

Participants: Bi Hui, Clarence, Edith, Ernie, Rebecca, Shu Pei, Suwei, Vanessa, Yanjun, Yanping, Yeeling, Yvonne

Rebecca, Participant:

The recent IPC Badminton session was one that I have been looking forward for a while. As someone who is a huge fan of watching badminton games, I also enjoy playing on court.

Almost everyone who went for the IPC badminton event played like a professional player. From the way they smashed and served the shuttlecocks, I could foresee their chances of winning national competitions hahaha.

The courts at Ngee Ann Polytechnic were located at a humongous indoor sports hall and it is probably one of the more conducive environment to hold a proper game.

The funniest moments that we had on court were the moments when someone got smashed by the shuttles. (Not once, but multiple times. Hehehe)

To sum it up, I definitely enjoyed my time at the session and will be looking forward to the next IPC event.

Edith, Participant:

It has been a long time since I have touched my badminton racket. When I was searching for my badminton racket, it was in the corner of my room collecting dust and I was thankful that luckily the strings are all intact hahah.

During the badminton game, I could feel my muscles straining with each smash. It was also slightly challenging to block the opponent’s smashes as the shuttlecock was flying across the air like a rocket. However, to my surprise, I have caught most of them and i realised that my reaction was pretty fast too.

During the game, we were trying all types of funny rules. For example, playing with our left hand and serving the shuttlecocks in many different ways.

I really enjoyed my time at the IPC event and I cannot wait for the next one.

What: RBKD Orientation 2016

When: 18 June 2016

Where: Balestier

Suwei, Participant:

The dinner after orientation was pretty much what I anticipated the most after a long day of team building activities. The buffet was awesome, the restaurant had lots of variety of food and seeing that really perked me up.

The company of good friends definitely made the dinner more enjoyable. During the dinner, we were talking about lots of different topics and there was laughter everywhere. 

Some of the topics revolved around school life, adulthood and travel experiences. Personally, I feel it was pretty heartwarming to see everyone having a common topic. 

Nonetheless, I hope to join in for dinner again next year.

What: RBKD Orientation 2016

When: 18 June 2016

Where: Toa Payoh

Celest, Participant:

It was my first time playing the mahjong paper game. Hence I was totally clueless about how to start the game. Fortunately, someone in my team discovered the trick of folding the mahjong paper inwards and we began advancing together with our feet on the mahjong paper. Our mahjong paper started to tear along the way, but we continued to move forward, undeterred.

I enjoyed playing the game with the members as well as with the new fans. On one hand, I had a feeling of closeness from being united with the members. Whereas on the other hand, it was a display of excellent team spirit with the new fans. Impressively, with some many of us standing on the mahjong paper, we stayed vigilant by holding on tightly to each other so as to ensure everyone’s safety before reaching the finishing point.

On the whole, it was a refreshing orientation experience for me this year at a neighbourhood park. To me, it is definitely a great place to have fun away from the crowds and attention.  

Weijen, Participant:

I look forward to Orientation every year because it is a day when members get to bond with each other through activities and games and that helps me to know other members which I was not previously familiar with (well RBKD is not small right )

I always tell my friends and parents that I am in Singapore for a team-building day for Orientation – indeed it is. It is a day when you need to spend almost whole day (or at least half a day) with a group of team members. Throughout this, I will need to remember their names, get to hear their basic intro (3+1) and talk to them personally. I always love team sports/games so I really appreciate the hard work put in to organise these activities by the organising committee – mainly Rebecca and Edith! Kudos to you guys for the hard work! *clap*

Once again, I look forward to more Orientation memories (best if amazing race because it will be really fun to hear someone saying ‘the distance I covered at amazing race is the longest distance I have ever covered in my life’

Mahjong paper game

Ok, talking about this, there are 2 rounds for this game at the Orientation: 1st round is the 4 teams (Resilient, Boundless, Knitted & Dedicated) going against each other and 2nd round is Non-members vs Members. I HAVE TO MENTION THAT MY TEAM, TEAM KNITTED, WON THE 1st round!!! hahahaha. Why? because our team worked with a strategy. And the strategy is: to follow the advice of the experienced members (who have played this game before)!! Simple and effective! haha. Credits to Ying Mei and Zhi Qing for Team Knitted’s hard-fought victory!! but of course, we couldn’t win without our fantastic teamwork because in this game, we need REALLY CLOSE body contact among the team members and to support/hold/carry each other constantly

2nd round comes with a twist because on paper, Members team have an advantage as most of the team are experienced in this game (of course la, president and orientation organising committee are in the team ma ) so there are more challenges for our team e.g. holding 2 cups of water compared to 1 of Non-members. Although embarrassingly we lost the round eventually to the Non-members, it is the 1st game I ever experienced at an Orientation being with all members in a team! The feeling is really different and fun as 19-20 of us were cuddled together, making jokes and taking wefies all the way, it is truly a member-bonding activity *likes*

When: 18 June 2016

Where: Toa Payoh

Edith, Organiser:

Double whacko is my favourite game in every year’s orientation!!! It’s not because I can play this game very well but because I really really can’t play this game. So it’ll get very funny as I’ll always fail to protect my partner (it’s not on purpose!) I think everyone hates being my partner for this game but for me I love double whacko hahaha

The game was fun and interesting when we could only use one leg to play soccer, it was a good experience for me.

I have never been for school orientation, so RBKD’s orientation ever year for me feels like going back to school
