“Alive with great maternal love, fill the world with infinite gratitude and full of love.”
Sian Chay Medical Institution in collaboration with the Ang Mo Kio GRC and Sengkang West SMC CCCs, organized the “Sian Chay heartwarming gratitude Mother’s Day” celebrations on 12 May 2017, created an atmosphere full of love and thanksgiving island-wide. And this warm gesture was recorded by Guinness World Records, becoming a historic moment for Singapore’s charity sector.
London is the birthplace of the World Records, but also the only headquarter of World Records certification organization. Ms. Paulina, the adjudicator assigned by “Guinness World Records” HQ, presented the certificate witnessed by the Board of Directors and the public at the launching ceremony of the mass distribution of flowers . A large heart-shaped bouquet was formed in Sengkang Secondary School establishing the record of “the world’s largest artificial bouquet” measuring 12.5-meter by 9.5-meter bouquet with a total of 41,249 artificial carnations. 20 Sian Chay volunteers spent about six hours to complete the bouquet in accordance with the requirements of Guinness World Records.
Mr Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Sian Chay, explained that the idea of creating a Guinness World Record was to commemorate with the island-wide mass flower distribution on the Mother’s Day. “We’d like to raise the awareness and encourage more people and organizations to present flowers on Mother’s Day next year, to practise filial piety and respect our mothers and make them happy”, said Mr. Toh, “If more people can experience the greatness of maternal love, and give flowers to their mothers with goodwill. Notwithstanding whether they will join Sian Chay in this goal of flowers distribution, we have already achieved our objective to promote family harmony and to create social harmony.”
Appreciation to Sengkang Secondary School for kindly offering their venue for the record attempt. Thanks to the prompt response and support of the Design 18 team, all volunteers and staff of Sian Chay for their participation in this project.
Sian Chay hopes to have more loving-hearted people to join hands and spread warmth through their hands to touch the hearts of people. With more public awareness and understanding of Sian Chay, we can build a better Sian Chay . Hope more people join Sian Chay to do good deeds, contribute to the community, benefit the public, and collectively create social harmony.
Mr. Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Sian Chay, promotes the 5 core values of Sian Chay, which are Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing. He often says, ”Benefiting from the society, giving back to the society.” Working together to take care for the vulnerble and needy by contributing money or labour. Mr. Toh often mentions the concept ” Nation Progresses, Family Prospers. Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours”, and “ Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People. This makes a better society.” This is the commitment of Sian Chay and the inherent responsibility and obligation of each Singaporean. Forward together for a better Singapore tomorrow.
