CHOICE SERVICE TEAM MEETINGS

Image
Since the postponement of the first CHOICE Weekend of the year, which was scheduled to be held on the 1st of May 2020 due to Covid-19,  the CHOICE English KL Service Team has adapted to a “New Norm” of having our meetings. Yes! We have been communicating virtually.
We have had two meetings via Google Meet so far and on each meetup, we discussed certain topics that were randomly selected yet closely related to our CHOICE weekend retreat topics. The sharing of the topics were really good and interesting as not all of us have the same views. It was a way for us all to get to understand, know each other a little better and build a stronger bond, despite not being able to have our regular meetings.
The turnouts for the meetings have been good. However, we would like to have more people joining us. Therefore, I would like to encourage all of you who have not been able to attend the virtual meetings to try to make an effort in doing so when you can, as you may find it spiritually uplifting and…

The Little Boy

One day.. A boy was walking down the street... Cold, wearing torn mittens, shoes worn out, and legs shivering in the winter cold..He reached a diner where he saw families sitting and having their pre-Christmas dinner with lots of food, drinks, laughter and most importantly.... Love. 
He stood at that diner for a long time until the supervisor saw him staring at his customers...  He rushed out, and told the boy.. "you little brat.. Move away from that window.. Ur scaring my customers"..The little boy then in shock just looked at the supervisor while his lips were shivering and said "b..bb..but sir I was just looking at how cozy and warm it is inside".."may I come in.. Please"..? asked the dirty scruffy boy.. 
Little Boy has been sleeping by the dump yard and under the bridges...He smelt like a street cat and had not taken a shower for a long time.. "come inside... No!" Said the manager... As he closed the blinders and told the boy to go away... …

My Reflection Journey - (Specially Dedicated To Those in the Medical & Service Line)

A couple of days ago, I had read on Facebook about an Italian couple who were nurses and had been called back to work in their working place, to aid with the increasing number of the coronavirus cases. Maybe some of you may have read the story.
Anyway, this couple had two children and they had to leave them with their parents. As the number of coronavirus cases had been increasing day by day, the couple soon found that it was impossible to even see or talk to each other as they were running up and down treating patients.
Finally, for a brief moment they had the time to look at each other's eyes, probably wondering and having conversations in their minds telepathically like, “When will we have the time to be together again”, “When can we see the children and spend time with them again”, etc.. and they both pulled down the mask they had on and exchanged a kiss. Then without wasting time, they put it back again to carry on with their work. Little did they know that their parents had al…

Three different Catholic Myanmar community homes in the city welcomed Christmas with carols sung by the youths from CHOICE English Kuala Lumpur (CEKL) on December 22.


KUALA LUMPUR: Three different Catholic Myanmar community homes in the city welcomed Christmas with carols sung by the youths from CHOICE English Kuala Lumpur (CEKL) on December 22. With the Extraordinary Missionary Year 2019 drawing to a close, this outreach was held in line with one of the four dimensions called upon by the Holy Father, to undertake missionary charity among the poor and the marginalised as a commitment with the whole Church.
First on the list was the Lai Catholic Community of Malaysia centre in Jalan Sungai Besi. The youths were warmly welcomed by the catechist Steven, together with his congregation of over 30 members. After a short prayer session and several carols, the youths were treated to a surprise when members of the community responded by singing a carol in their native language. When asked abo…
