Great News For The Ladies!

From 1 Nov 2010, Medisave300 is extended to include the vaccination against cervical cancer.

What this means for all the ladies out there aged between 9 to 26 is this:
The cost of vaccination is greatly reduced since one can tap into their Medisave Account (or their family members) to subsidize/pay for their vaccination costs. This is however subjected to a maximum cost of $300 per year. Hence, the name Medisave300.

What is Medisave300?
It is basically a withdrawal from your current Medisave account to help cover the cost of some costly vaccinations and treatment of chronic diseases at the outpatient level. The withdrawal limit is capped at $300 per year.

I am just thinking, if you get your vaccination next month, you can possibly have the vaccination totally covered for since the three doses are given over a span of six months. So for all my dear friends that are yet to be vaccinated, get yours once its November!

You can read about these changes in details on the Ministry of Health website:

Art With A Heart For Cambodia

The last weekend was especially packed, not forgetting that Friday was Children's Day.

In line with the celebrations, a friend of mine invited us to her daughter's art exhibition. This was in a bid to raise funds for the children in Cambodia.
I was amazed and appalled when I first received the invite. And quite obviously, I was eager and expectant at how the exhibition would be like.

Held at their home, the 8-year old Rachel had the walls fully utilised, displaying all her artwork.

It was interesting to note that she used a wide variety from colour pencils to water colours. Beside being awed by the sheer number of artwork on display, I am even more touched by how BIG the heart of such a young girl is. Here is a picture of her!

My princess also did her bit for the underprivileged kids in Cambodia and bought this painting. Beautiful isn't it?

As an afterthought, isn't it true that we are all capable of doing our part for someone that is less fortunate than us? All it takes is just a bit more effort and thought on our part. I'm inspired by little Rachel to do something more. Hope you are too!
