“This year we decide to focus on quality, hence you see we are giving chicken essence which is a luxury item not many can afford,” said Sister Ellen Song. Since some residents do not cook “I have bought items which don’t require cooking. They just need to add hot water to the cereals or nutritious beverages. Some CNY goodies like pineapple tarts, biscuits, cookies, mandarin oranges and sweets are also included,” she added.
