Here's our website. I wouldnt say its really perfect now, but now I am having quite some free time I will continue to improve on this day by day. We occasionally do some writeups for the events participated as well so more insights into our floral activities! 😊

... so this is for us.
This is for us who sing, write, dance, act, study, run and love
and this is for doing it even if no one will ever know
because the beauty is in the act of doing it.
Not what it can lead to.
This is for the times I lose myself while writing, singing, playing
and no one is around and they will never know
but I will forever remember
and that shines brighter than any praise or fame or glory I will ever have,
and this is for you who write or play or read or sing
by yourself with the light off and door closed
when the world is asleep and the stars are aligned
and maybe no one will ever hear it
or read your words
or know your thoughts
but it doesn’t make it less glorious.
It makes it ethereal. Mysterious.

Throwback to last Saturday's event as we sponsored our felt and dried florals for an community service initiative by Ngee Ann Poly HMS Alumni. They went down to Thye Hwa Kwan to interact with the elderlies there by conducting a floral craft workshop. Glad to see that the elderly had a great time designing their cupcake florals! 😊
Really thankful towards NP HMS Alumni and Thye Hwa Kwan for the opportunity and we are really looking forward in getting our hands involved with Commserve events in the near future! 😊
I highly recommend running through grassy trails in the rain. There is a haven of serenity out in nature, the sound of raindrops and the scent of flowers, the feeling of the water along my skin. Even in the middle of a busy city and an insane world, there is beauty everywhere. All we have to do is pause long enough to notice.

Get out of your house and walk around nature, it definitely feels good!
Mid Autumn Festival
Do you know about the different legends related to this joyous occasion?
The most popular one would be the love story of Hou Yi and Chang E. Hou Yi, a skilled archer, shot down nine suns to relieve everyone from the long-term drought. He obtained the elixir of immortality as a reward. A cunning disciple of Hou Yi then went to demand the elixir from Chang E when Hou Yi was out hunting. In order not to let the elixir fall into the wrong hands, Chang E drank the elixir and ascended to the moon as a goddess. Hou Yi set up offerings of her favourite food under the moon. The rest of the villagers followed suit as well, thus eventually leading to the custom of people reuniting with family and friends under the moonlight.
In a famous poem written by Su Shi named Shui Diao Ge Tou (Remembering Su Che (his brother) on Mid-Autumn Festival), the last line “但愿人长久，千里共婵娟” speaks of this custom as well.
