NASAM IPOH HAPPENINGS
On 3 July 2009, nine MSIG Ipoh staff led by their Branch Manager Lucy Law visited NASAM Ipoh to hand over a donation of RM2,000 to NASAM Ipoh. Chairman Surine Ho and two other committee members, Timothy Chee and Thomas Choo, were on hand to receive the cheque.
NASAM IPOH & AMPANG's JOINT OUTING
On 27 June 2009, twenty-seven strokees, carers, volunteers and physios made a weekend visit to Ipoh. They were greeted by NASAM Ipoh's Chairman, Surine who hosted a yummilicious luncheon.
In the evening, the group with some strokees from NASASM Ipoh went on the Night Safari in Taiping Zoo. Though not many night creatures were spotted, the group was nevertheless thrilled as this was the first safari experience for most of them.
The next morning, NASAM Ampang and NASAM Ipoh strokees visited the Tambun Pomelo Farm where they learnt some valuable and amazing facts about pomelos.
Whilst on holiday, the group did not neglect their exercise. Irene, Physio-in-charge of NASAM Ipoh, led the group in a session of aerobics, followed by a laughter therapy session conducted by volunteer Miriam Foo.
Lunch, courtesy of Surine again, was the famous Ipoh chicken and bean sprouts. Immediately after lunch, NASAM Ampang did their last minute shopping before heading back home with their stock of pomelos, salted chickens & biscuits.
Everyone enjoyed the trip tremendously not only because of the good time and delicious food but also the warm hospitality of the hosts. Many thanks to Surine, Irene & Miriam from NASAM Ampang.
A BUSY FRIDAY
3 July was a busy Friday at NASAM PJ when they received Toh Puan Dato Seri Dr Aishah Ong, NASAM's Patron, in the morning and played host to 16 employees from Sara Lee Malaysia in the afternoon.
A lion dance greeted Toh Puan who was shown the NASAM video before being taken to the various therapy stations that have been set up. Toh Puan gave NASAM a personal donation of RM2,000.
Sara Lee employees enjoyed some interaction with the strokees and sponsored the teabreak which was enjoyed by all. They were keen to learn stroke prevention as well as signs of stroke as a colleague had suffered a stroke recently.
Their Technical Services Manager, Koay Chew Aik, gave an enlightening talk on dengue and chikungunya diseases. Tan Chooi Khim, President of Sara Lee Malaysia, Singapore & Vietnam handed NASAM a generous donation of RM5,000 before they left.
Early rehabilitation is crucial. Every stoke survivor must seek rehabilitation treatment as soon as possible. More »
