Dragon Head-wearing Kid Distributes Energy Drink To Migrant Workers, Spreads CNY Festive Cheer
As we ease into the Chinese New Year festivities in Singapore, thoughts of gathering with our loved ones come to mind: the piping hot hotpot, fragrant festive delights… you get the gist. For the kids, they might be excited to receive angbaos and playing with their cousins. While revelling in the hearty atmosphere, it can be easy to forget that there are others who do not have this luxury.
But not for this family, at least, who went the extra mile to distribute packets of drink to community workers in their neighbourhood.
“Even as we prepare to feast on good food and the warmth of family, we want our children to remember those who are working extra hard this season but do not have their loved ones beside them in Singapore.”

19 Jan | Spread Kindness . We are one week away from CNY. Many families already started having reunion dinners. Even as we prepare to feast on good food and the warmth of family, we want our children to remember those who are working extra hard this season but do not have their loved ones beside them in Singapore. . So early this morning, Daddy set out with the kids to distribute chilled Milo drinks to community workers in our neighborhood – construction workers, cleaners, security guards…It’s a simple gesture that brought a smile to each of them. . No, @milosingapore did not send us to do this. It’s not commercialization of charity. Milo just happens to be our kids’ fav drink and a universal drink favored by many. We don’t do this to get anyone’s praises or attention. I’m sharing this on my feed to remind ourselves that it takes very little to be kind and hopefully inspire some of you to do the same. ♥️This CNY, let’s be intentional in choosing to spread kindness.🧧🌸🍊 . . . #spreadkindness #BeKind #Sgkids #InstaKids #kindacts #kindnessmatters
According to Angie, her husband David and children—Dana and Buddy—had set off early last Sunday, 19 January 2020, to send some festive cheer to the unsung heroes in their neighbourhood.
Construction workers, cleaners and security guards were greeted by Buddy, geared with a dragon “head-wear” handing out packets of milo drinks.
The simple and thoughtful gesture had smiles plastered over the workers’ faces as they edged closer for a photo with the ‘dragon head-wearing kid’.
It was a heartwarming sight to behold.
