Lunchtime treat: The Shammah Children’s Home kids enjoying their lunch at Manhattan Fish Market in Sunway Carnival Mall in Seberang Jaya.
BUTTERWORTH: It was a fun outing at the movies and a lip-smacking meal at an American-style seafood restaurant for SMK St Mark student F. Fatrik, but the 15-year-old wonders if he will have any new clothes to wear for Christmas.
The Form Three student was among 20 underprivileged children from the Shammah Children’s Home here, aged two to 15, who were feted to a Christmas outing by the Sunway Carnival Mall in Seberang Jaya yesterday.
While he enjoyed the movie and the meal, Fatrik feels sad that he and the others would have to wear their old clothes for Christmas although the celebration is just around the corner.
“Nobody has bought us new clothing for the celebration,” said Fatrik. “Maybe all of us would have to wear the old ones,” he added.
Fatrik and his brother, F. Manuel, 11, together with the other youngsters, watched the animated movie Frozen at Golden Screen Cinemas and were then given a hearty lunch at Manhattan Fish Market.
“I really enjoyed it,’’ said Manuel.
Another SMK St Mark Form Two student, P. Vijay, 14, thanked the sponsors for the treats.
After lunch, the children were given a story book each and a chance to make personal sand art greeting cards.
Sunway Carnival Mall marketing manager Sharley Ooi said the event was part of their corporate social responsibility programme called Some of Us.
Present at the events were mall senior executive marketing and communications Khoo Yi Peng and Shammah home administrator M. Josephine.
