Panda craze is coming to River Safari & Singapore

Singaporeans are too excited for the public view of Kai Kai and Jia Jia at River Safari on 29 Nov 2012. Are you excited? I am sure most of us look forward to see them.

They will be one of the most attractive attractions in the River Safari, Singapore, as pandas are not frequently seen in many zoos around the world. Except for some zoos in Japan, US as well as China. I had seen pandas in Beijing Zoo. Pandas are adorable yet they are endangered species as pandas only eat particular species of bamboo as their food.

I hope people can do their part to save the pandas from being extinct. Visit www.panda.org (WWF) and save their habitat.

Of course, there will be other animals on exhibit as well. I cannot wait to visit River Safari in Singapore soon to say hello to Kai Kai and Jia Jia and many other beautiful animals too!

Walk with AIDS patients on World Aids Day in Singapore

Since World Aids Day is coming soon on 1 Dec 2012, I would like to share with my readers this event on ‘Walk With Me’ at Orchard – Scape warehouse from 2pm to 6pm. Visit http://www.aidswalk.sg to view the details of the event.

AIDS Walk 2012 walking towards zero new infections, zero deaths, zero stigma and discrimination. Registration is free for taking part in this walking event. I am sure many people  can be very fearful of HIV positive patients or patient diagnosed with AIDS and even sitting or walking near them.

I would like to recap that AIDS cant be spread while having a meal together or even walk together on the streets. It only can be spread through exchange body fluids via sexual activity or open wounds and infected needles.

You also can donate some money to help these AIDS patients as the medication for treatment for AIDS is indeed very expensive. Some of the money will be used for subsiding their medications so that they can live longer. Donations which are $50 and above will be available for tax deduction. To allow tax deduction, please include your NRIC, FRIN or RCB number and full name.

Still can remember my previous post on :

Visit to Patient Care Centre @ Tan Tock Seng Hospital & Be positive with people living with HIV

Patient Care Centre at Tan Tock Seng Hospital – Communicable Disease Centre 1 do sell quite a number of nice handicrafts for raising funds for HIV positive patients. All proceeds of the sales items will go to Patient care centre. If you are interested to purchase them for gifts or yourself, you can go to 1 of the stall located near Kopitiam at Tan Tock Seng Hospital main atrium area level 1 or email to gina_he_quek@ttsh.com.sg to order them.

I also mentioned about Prevention is better than cureIt is best to prevent with ABC which are:

A – Abstain from having casual sex

B – Be faithful to your partner

C – Use Condom Correctly

Visit  http://www.afa.org.sg/bepositive.php on how you can make a difference in AIDS patients’ lives.

I also hope that more people will be aware of this and understand more about this. Do spread this message to your friends and family as well.
