This event was held on January 31, 2008. The Buddhist Temple, Vihara Avalokistesvara, where mum prays at organized a charity event to celebrate Chinese New Year by donating foods to the less fortunate. I didn’t attend this charity. I was out of town caring for my grieving aunt. Since mum was involved, I contributed money to purchase some of the donated items. A week before the event, volunteers went around the city to find families who need a helping hand. In all, 128 packages of foods are donated. Some of the donors gave away red envelopes too.


1. Candies (128 packages) Rp 1,632,000

2. Cooking Oil (128 packages) Rp 1,248,000

Total: Rp 2,880,000 (US$ 313.04)
