Captain’s log                                  Stardate: 98828.6 (Mar 28th, 2016)

Our friendly and loving community Pause For A Cause was been invited by the Jamiyah Children’s Home. The home is an abode of care and shelter for the orphans and children of single parents, drug detainees, abused and dysfunctional families. The home also aims to provide the welfare and development services to these kids. To help them to become responsible individuals and who can contribute to their families in society.

So on that day Mar 27th (Sunday), the children will dress up as different characters to give them the moment to enjoy the fun day. So on our part, we will too dress up, or should I say cosplay into our favourite characters and join in the fun! =)

5 of us turned up for that day, which consist of three Power Rangers, One Doraemon and Naruto. I came as the usual Red Ranger me.

Its like only 2 weeks ago where I had attended for the kids at Kandang Kerbau Hospital. Now back again, in my Red Ranger suit, to provide hope, the love and support for these children in need. I never get tired of doing something that I love, as long I’m still capable and free. I learn something by each visit, especially when comes to kids in homes. They need someone to be there for them, after what they have gone through.

We worked together with this volunteer group known as Rotary Club to bring smiles to the kids. I actually expected to see dozens of kids in there. But turn out only a few. And there were quite rowdy in a sense.

But still, kids will be kids. What I learn is to have a few talks with them or more and they actually listen to you. From there, you can actually had a newfound respect for them.

We all have to understand where they came from. Some of them were there for 3 years. They can come as young as 3 years old. Feeling lonely, uncertain and confused. I was told some even have experienced trauma. Till they were unable to trust the adults around them. It saddens you just to imagine how it was like…..They are only children. Innocent and lost. They don’t deserved such treatment. So that’s why the home aims to spread the unconditional love to these children and help them to develop into responsible adults.

So open up your mind and be grateful how fortunate that you have loving parents. These kids may be rowdy. Misbehaved. But knowing where they came from, and the painful journey they had to face, it really saddens me. I hope one day they grow up to be responsible, and what the home had taught and groom them. God’s willing. They are still humans and deserved to be shape for the better.

Though the event is small, its still worth it. Getting to know the kids and all. Cosplaying for the extraordinary really taught me many things. As long I’m free and capable, I’m always on the go! =D

Photos handsomely taken. Many credits to the photographers! =)

Captain’s log                                      Stardate: 91917.6 (Mar 17th, 2016)

On Mar 14th, three Power Rangers (Me as the old time Red Ranger) and Princess Anna of Arendelle (Frozen) make their way down to Kandang Kerbau Hospital to pay a visit to the kids there. To give them what they deserved. Happiness, care and loved.

Its another meaningful day for us, members of the fun-loving committee, Pause For A Cause (PFAC) to show our support, dedication to the little ones and to make their day. Make it the best ever! An unforgettable one. This too includes for the nurses and doctors, as well as the families. Its always fun to see your favourite characters or superheroes appeared at your working place. And just couldn’t resist the urge to take photo with us! =D

With one of the organizers leading the way, we will go ward by ward, level to level. Meeting the kids and their families. Something unexpected for them, as we popped by. Imagine the reaction on many of their faces! Especially when seeing our friend cosplay as Princess Anna. Some of the little girls there just love her.

Anna and the Snow Queen, Elsa had become quite popular ever since the movie was launch. No doubt many of the girls, especially the little ones couldn’t resist both of them.

What we had observed, and as told by the organiser that most of the kids were not feeling that well on that day. Unlike last year where most of them were quite active. So we try not to be there for too long as they need really the rest.

Nevertheless its still worth the visit, as you finally be able to make their day. It’s not like you get to do this everyday. It’s a chance I would love to do and will do it again as long I’m free. Doing something meaningful while in costume than just cosplaying itself really tells a thousand words =)

A nice and wonderful group photo of us before we fulfil the fun for the kids. A before and after for the Power Rangers just for the fun of it! =D
