The RUNNING begins!
This year’s Metta Charity Run 2013, we have taken our run to the picturesque Punggol Waterway Park also aptly nicknamed by some as the “Venice of Punggol” for its beauty and tranquility. Runners will be running on the scenic park connector alongside a landscaped waterway resembling that of a river making the experience delightful.
The Metta Charity Run is an annual community event organised by the Metta Welfare Association (Metta) to raise funds for the development and enrichment of its disability care, medical care, special education and early intervention programmes in aid of some 1,000 beneficiaries from across various races and religions.
Symbolising the significance of journeying with the less fortunate, it is one way of giving a helping hand and supporting a cause that is close to your heart.
Join us for a great race on 7 September 2013!

On May 11th 2012 afternoon, 80 summer analysts from Credit Suisse came by for a day of waxing and batik painting. The alumni youths played teachers to these finance and banking interns and guided their virgin attempts at waxing and painting the batik cloth pieces. Being happy campers, the alumni youths and the interns mingled well over humorous conversations.
At the start of the session, each participant was given a beautifully outlined flower scene on an A5-sized canvas fitted into a wooden frame. Next, participants were instructed on the usage of liquid wax to outline the pencil-drawn floral design with a Batik painting tool called Tjanting. This is to prevent the batik dye from smudging beyond the dried wax outlines. Finally, the floral batik artworks came to life in vibrant colours.
At the end of the session, our Credit Suisse friends were rewarded with tasty pastries made with love by the trainees from our social enterprise, Happy Arts Deli. They were delightfully impressed with the snacks and managed to polish them off within an hour.
This batik painting experience was more than a novel one. The corporate interns unanimously agreed it was a humbling and enriching experience for all of them.
“Before I can apply the batik dyes, I was stopped by one of the alumni youth several times because she found gaps in my painting’s wax outline. On one hand, I felt like giving up when I had to redo the outlines. On another, I was amazed by her eye for detail, so I knew I had to listen to her,” one of the participant recalled.
They are all happy campers!
