"Patchwork of Reminiscences”

Join the Book Launch " Here "

Following the previous "Blog on Clogs" posted, I received an email from Miss Cheryl Quek, of Patchworks, a special projects committee under Nanyang Technological University's Welfare Services Club (WSC)regarding the "Patchwork of Reminiscences". Her blog as follows:

The launch of "Patchwork of Reminiscences" on 25th July 2010 at Jurong Point Shopping Centre.

"Patchwork of Reminiscences" is a heartwarming compilation of true and inspirational stories from the lives of 17 Singaporean senior citizens. Each story is a unique account of how ordinary men and women survived life’s battles and have emerged strong. From surviving the Japanese Occupation, going through the trials and tribulations of life to pursuing their dreams and passions even at their golden age, the stories of these elders will inspire you and touch your heart!

The 17 elders featured are the very epitome of courageous men and women who braved the trials and tribulations of life and have emerged strong. ‘Live.Learn.Experience’ is the very essence we hope to bring to you. Let their passion, determination and zeal for life inspire you!

The book is produced entirely by student volunteers of NTU. It is also our pride and honour to have His Excellency S R Nathan pen the foreword of the book. “Patchwork of Reminiscences” is our second project following “Patchwork of Flavours” – a compilation of recipes contributed by elderly.

Patchworks is delighted to present you this meaningful project for a worthy cause. Each "Patchwork of Reminiscences" book sells at SGD$15. Proceeds from the sale of the book will go to Asian Women's Welfare Association (AWWA) and Kheng Chiu Loke Tin Kee Home.

On Patchworks

Our club Patchworks is a special projects committee under the arm of Welfare Services Club, Nanyang Technological University. Fully run by student volunteers, our objective is to raise funds through various social entrepreneurship ventures, where proceeds from the ventures will be donated to selected beneficiaries. Through the projects, we aim to provide a platform to encourage interaction between different generations.

It is a recipe book consisting of 38 traditional recipes contributed by elders from all walks of life. “Patchwork of Flavours” was well-received by the public in both our English and Chinese editions. Over 3000 copies have been sold since its launch in 2007 and a sum of $10,000 is donated to the beneficiaries in 2009. The beneficiaries were AWWA Community Home for Senior Citizens, Kheng Chiu Loke Tin Kee Home, Geylang East Home for The Aged and Retired & Senior Volunteer Programme.
