Together with Jasmine, we were invited to P&G’s annual 'Thank You, Mom' campaign for the fifth consecutive year. This is a partnership program with NTUC FairPrice, under the theme of #LoveOverBias. This event was to highlight the key roles and unconditional love/support of mothers to their children who have special needs, and on overcoming the different challenges and biases mother and child faces daily.
The event started off with a welcome speech by the special guest, Ms. Low Yen Ling, Senior Parliamentary Secretary of the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Manpower. She paid tribute to Special Olympics Singapore athletes and their mothers.
During the event, we were treated to a sumptuous high tea at Blu Meze, Dempsey Hill. We were delighted to indulge in a special dish by Celebrity Chef Forest Leong. The Roasted Lemongrass Chicken Roulade with Mixed Mushrooms was delectable, and was easily the highlight of the day.
Apart from the special creation by Chef Leong, we also got to enjoy some other delicacies.
Sandwiches: Tuna, Chicken, Cheese
Spinach Pie with Phyllo Pastry
Dakos with Feta
Zucchini Party with Yoghurt Sauce
Assorted Scones with Marmalade Spread
Vegan Raspberry & Coconut Cheesecake with Dates and Honey
Apricot Jam Tarts
I took a photo with one of the participants, Joshua who has a huge passion for photography, and he took a pic of RKM using his polaroid camera.
After the high tea, the live sharing session was conducted, and I was impressed by the mothers as they put in a lot of their time and effort to give the best for their children who have special needs. I want to take this opportunity to appreciate the strength and sacrifices mothers make, as they are the heartbeat of each family. They bind the bond of the family together, and create a firm, secure foundation for growth and potential development.
The event was a success, and it culminated in a cheque presentation of SGD20,000 to Special Olympics Singapore on behalf of P&G and NTUC FairPrice.
Thanks for having us, and we were happy to be part of this meaningful event!
