Charity And Cheers At The Bazaar

Bazaars are oftentimes a wealth of fun with all the delectable delicacies, odds and ends, trinkets, and colours to choose from. 
But the recent charity bazaar at Aurora Place Bukit Jalil was more than that. It is said that children should start their financial education early, although primary schools and kindergartens rarely have that.

Therefore, all the children from the HiiChiiKok Foundation pounced on the golden opportunity when it was known that a financial class would be conducted at this particular charity bazaar.

There, the children were given a 30-minute talk on financial management with illustrations to keep the class interesting. 

Since they were of a tender age, the lessons were kept simple but no less important. Theory and practice came alongside each other that day, for the children were given vouchers right after it ended.

The cheerful cherubs spread out to browse the vast array of merchandise offered at the bazaar. Cake rolls, Chinese paus, and New Year tidbits dominated the place.

It was also akin to a spa day with the many shampoos, lotions and fragrance-related products on offer. Beyond shopping, the children were treated to various performances from drums, and solo singing performances to the lion dance that heralded the approaching Chinese New Year.

Those who bear witness to this event would assume it to be just another shopping spree. But it was a wealth of joy and knowledge at the charity bazaar, with the children emerging from it all the wiser.

This fun-filled day is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to:




No better way to breach cultural differences than with fashion, good food 

Coming from a multicultural nation, it is common for our society to be plagued by racism. But when we observe children of different races playing together, we will notice the absence of this pernicious problem.

Racism is a learned trait, and with that said, the HiiChiiKok Foundation is doing its part to instil unity among the people, best done at a tender age.

Nine children and the staff were invited to a dinner to celebrate the birthday of YM Tengku Puteri Puan Sri Rosmawini binti Y.A.M. Tengku Dato’ Muiz Shah who is the President of the Chinese Cheongsam Association of Malaysia.

Now that the famed Chinese traditional dress is being mentioned, it is unsurprising that all the ladies came to the event at ICC Pudu dressed in cheongsam, as was the dress code. 

Everyone was treated to a sumptuous Chinese dinner, from steamed fish, lotus leaf rice, fried prawns coated with nestum, mushroom stew and more. These came in stages to keep the quality interaction alive.

But it was also a feast for the eyes as much as the tongue for the event was punctuated with various performances.

There came a performer who dazzled the crowd with the magical act of changing the colours of her mask, right in plain sight. This was followed by a solo and group singing performance.

It was already deep into the night but the event kept on giving. Every child received a gift pack consisting of chocolates, candles, candies and an ang pow valued at RM10 each.

For those who observe the event, they may assume that it was merely a night of enjoyment. But the lesson learned by the children was a subtle one. 

Joy and happiness is a universal feeling shared by all, regardless of skin colour. This fun-filled event is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis.

Building more than sand castles at Port Dickson

For many people, a vacation by the beach is all about leaving the hectic world behind to embrace the wonders of nature. But for the children of HiiChiiKok Foundation, it takes on a whole new world of meaning.

All the children and staff, with the exception of a select few, participated in the activity. The weekday was chosen so the beach was relatively quiet and free from holidayers, just the perfect time for a wealth of activities.

The children went right into the water, which was just fine that day. Those who observed their antics can all agree that the children of HiiChiiKok Foundation were born to swim. 

But beyond the sound of laughter and fun, vigilance was maintained at all times. The older children were taught responsibility by acting as mini mentors to their younger friends. 

Safe to say, this was a great bonding session between the kids and their guardians, and everyone had a splashing good time. Once they had all expended their energy frolicking at the beach, they then returned to the shores for a simple yet rejuvenating picnic. The meals were lovingly prepared by the staff prior.

Plastic forks and spoons made a play at the beach and paper plates were handed around. Although everyone had a great appetite, they were careful not to litter the place. All rubbish was duly collected by the children and disposed of accordingly. While people are building sand castles by the beach, the kids are building character.

Later that evening, they would retire for a one-night stay at a semi-detached home with a quaint view overlooking the beach. When all the fun and festivity has finally settled down, all that remains is the lesson they will take to heart.

Even before their departure on the morrow, the children were required to work as a team to clean up their lodging. It is a stark reminder that regardless of time and place, their civic duties must always be at the forefront.

All that fun and joy before Christmas.

Christmas has always been a time of great joy and feasting. But let us be honest. An ideal life is one where every day is a blessing. At HiiChiiKok Foundation, the children had a series of celebrations building up to the climax which was Christmas itself.

From home visits, and carolling to partying, the spirit of Christmas was strong throughout the entire month of December. One such event was the Sprinkles & Joyful Day, organised by IKEA and held at IKEA Damansara, Petaling Jaya.

It is a celebration of coming together, cherishing loved ones and making lasting memories for the coming Christmas. 20 children and one staff member participated in the event.

They had ample opportunities to express their creativity that day. The event started out with them decorating their very own Ginger Heart cookies with coloured icing sugar, all sponsored by IKEA.

Rarely do we get to eat our artwork, but that is the case for the deserving children who were so meticulous in their efforts. Seated together in groups, it was all very messy but the wonderful kind. Laughter filled the air and the tables were littered with breadcrumbs.

Their busy hands are about to get busier. Once the Ginger Heart cookies had been prettied up, it was time to assemble the Advent Calendar. Those came in cardboard, requiring quite a degree of thought and patience to assemble.

But once the calendars were up, everyone could see that it was worth the trouble. Now the children can place their little candies into the folded cardboard slots to mark the approaching Christmas.

They say that Santa rewards the good kids with presents. So it comes as no surprise when the creative children of HiiChiiKok Foundation were later showered with gifts for their efforts.

This fun-filled evening is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to:











Illuminating Children’s Rights With The Light Of Deepavali

Deepavali has always captured the imagination with the many clay lamps that Hindus light to illuminate the night. But when this festival is celebrated alongside World Children’s Day, sparks are bound to fly.

Several weeks back, the children of Hiichiikok Foundation attended the Deepavali And World Children’s Day Celebration Dinner, organised by the Budimas Charitable Foundation. 

Other orphanages and homes were equally invited, but the children of Hiichiikok Foundation were given the honour of unofficially officiating the charity dinner with an opening performance.

About 21 children ranging from seven to 15 years old went up the stage to deliver a smashing Jai Ho dance. They looked radiant in their traditional Indian dresses of bright purple, red, beige and blue.

Then there was a solo dance performance by Dimple who amidst cheers and applause, entranced the audience with her lively moves. When they returned to their tables, a vivacious clown came up to entertain them with hand-crafted balloons in all shapes and sizes.

Once it was time to stop clowning around, the children were given coloured papers to create a wish card in conjunction with World Children’s Day, which celebrates children’s rights.

Flowers, hearts and origami swans were quickly formed by their deft fingers. These were then adhered to a single manila cardboard to unify 

their collective artwork.

Then there was the Kolam colouring competition in conjunction with Deepavali. While everyone was busy sprinkling coloured rice flour, the judges made their rounds.

Delightfully, the children of Hiichiikok Foundation won second place in the contest which was judged together with the wishing card contest.

Later on, food was distributed in the form of roti canai, curried rice and barbecued chicken. It is safe to say that there were no hungry tummies that day. Before concluding the event, goody bags were also distributed to the children so that their smiles remained even after returning home.

This enriching event is one of the many that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to:

Creativity Shines Brighter Than The Moon This Mid-Autumn Festival

Creativity has always been the boundless energy that fuels our progress. But more than that, there is great joy in watching it develop in a child who seeks to understand the world around them.

It is this energy that will help them develop into well-learned individuals. Hence the children of HiiChiiKok Foundation did not miss the opportunity to exercise their creativity in the passing Mid Autumn Festival celebration, organised by the Touching Lives Club.

A total of 34 children, 5 caretakers and 4 volunteers took part in the event which was held at Pavilion Bukit Jalil. It was a “flourful” time, with the children handling and moulding coloured flour with their gloved hands.

Within moments, the table tops were filled with balls of flour, all ready to be pressed into the ubiquitous mooncake forms that we all knew and loved.

These adorable and delectable art pieces were then kept in dainty red boxes which they could then bring home as a memento.

But the mooncake festival is never complete with the mooncakes alone. With that said, the children also tried their hands at making the traditional lanterns that lighted the night alongside the full moon.

Cardboard pieces were meticulously cut into frames, with some pieces folded over to assume a cube shape. Then transparent yellow plastic is stretched over these cutouts to complete the lantern.

Creativity was not the only thing they expressed that day. The children also took part in the lantern procession that led to a stage where they sang songs about the mooncake festival.

This certainly helped boost their confidence since they had to perform in front of a crowd of cheering spectators. If anyone had the mind to look up, they would have noticed the moon shining bright that night. But we are certain that their youth, passion and creativity shines brighter.

This fun-filled night is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to:



正是这种能量将帮助他们成长为学富五车的个体。因此,HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们不放过了通过Touching Lives Club组织的中秋庆祝活动锻炼他们的创意的机会。









Instilling Patriotism Into Our Leaders Of Tomorrow

Regardless of who we are, poor, rich, young, or old, there is no excuse not to love our country. But more than that, this noble expression is the lifeblood of every successful country. 

When people are able to collectively sacrifice, work and drive the country forward, everyone benefits in a holistic manner. With that in mind, the Hiichiikok Foundation is always searching for opportunities to plant the seeds of patriotism into the hearts of the children.

The 10th of Sept this year marked a wonderful chance, presented by the Bahai Merdeka Unity Devotional & Social Group Action. The gathering at the Bahai Center was organised to foster greater unity while spreading joy and patriotism in conjunction with Merdeka Day and Malaysia Day.

The event was attended by 27 people from the HiiChiiKok Foundation, which consisted of 23 children, 2 caretakers and 2 drivers. The children performed three songs that evening as requested by the organiser, among them being Tanggal 31 Ogos by Sudirman. It was a sea of red and white stripes with the children waving their flags in the air.

“The crowd enjoyed the performances so much that they requested an encore to one of the songs and our children even added another one of their favourite songs,” said Frieda Ngui, Guardian at the Hiichiikok Foundation.

One of the girls even stepped up to entertain the crowd with several Malay poems when the other children backed down. The performance may be over, but the spirit of nationalism lingered through the art canvas painting session.

Each child was handed a square of canvas with a semicircle drawn on it. They ran wild with their creativity, producing rainbows, homes with figures, or abstract art that speaks of their boundless imagination.

Smiles lit their small little faces. Cute hands were anointed with vibrant colours. Everyone had a wholesomely, good time. Undoubtedly, the children will carry the memory of their beloved country home through the songs and artwork. 

This fun-filled evening is but one of the many enriching activities that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to:

Buying For A Good Cause

The campus of Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) was alive with the sound of music, laughter and merry making as visitors arrived I droves for the ‘Caring Hearts, Changing Lives’ event. A CSR event organised by HCK Capital Group (HCK) in aid of Yayasan Hiichiikok, the developer had pledged to match Ringgit for Ringgit sales made on the day with donations to the Home for underprivileged children.

The event featured musical performances by children from Yayasan Hiichiikok as well as numerous booths offering a variety of games to entertain the multitude of visitors. HCK staff were joined by those from partner financial institutions and real estate agencies, allowing staff of these stakeholders to network as well as exercise their corporate social responsibility initiatives.

A number of the visitors had come specifically to view the Harvard Suites on site while others were visitors to the CSR event who took the opportunity to check out the properties on offer.

“Weekends tend to attract more visitors who come to check out the Harvard Suites,” says Sean Ong, HCK Director for Business Relations Properties Division. “There is no reason why we can’t support a good cause through our sales and marketing channels.”

Ong also thanked students and parents from Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) and Peninsula Private School for taking an active part in the day’s events. They, too, set up stalls selling foodstuffs to raise funds and showcased their talents with a dance performance.

Given the success of the ‘Caring Hearts, Changing Lives’ event, Ong says there will be more CSR events in the future where greater awareness can be created by leveraging on Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) and Peninsula Private School as well as HCK’s property events.

Yayasan Hiichiikok is based in Taman Rainbow, Kuala Lumpur and aims to provide a safe and secure refuge for underprivileged children. It also aims to provide education opportunities for these children to escape their impoverished circumstances. For more information, please go to:

Event For Hope

Yayasan Hiichiikok is a home for under-privileged children based in Taman Rainbow, Kuala Lumpur, offering safe refuge as well as an opportunity to escape impoverished circumstances through education. It was established to allow HCK Capital Group, its subsidiaries and associated stakeholders and partners to exercise its CSR initiatives, allowing for a meaningful exercise in giving back to society.

One such event – Caring Hearts, Changing Lives: A CSR Adventure – will be held at Peninsula International School Australia (Malaysia Campus) on 24 June 2023, 10am-5pm. It is essentially a fundraiser involving staff of HCK Capital Group as well as those of invited stakeholders such as UOB Bank Berhad and real estate agencies, with members of the public encouraged to join in.

Participating staff will be setting up stalls selling food and other items alongside those by Yayasan Hiichiikok children with all proceeds going towards funding the Home as well as potential scholarships for deserving students.

Designed to create greater awareness of Yayasan Hiichiikok, the event will also provide a meaningful platform for staff of various participating organisations to know each other better. Aside from manning stalls, children from Yayasan Hiichiikok will also put on musical performances showcasing their talents.

“Yayasan Hiichiikok sincerely thanks everyone who put in their time and energy towards making this event a success. Apart from fund raising, it is a means to highlight to the children they are not forgotten and there are always people willing to give a lending hand to the needy,” says Frieda Ngui, Chief administrator at Yayasan Hiichiikok. “We invite everyone to join us on the day to spread some good will, cheer and positivity.”

Yayasan Hiichiikok offers scholarships to deserving students

Yayasan Hiichiikok provides much needed food and shelter to over 30 under privileged children at its home in Taman Rainbow in Kuala Lumpur. But more than that, it also provides the means and opportunity for these children to escape the cycle of poverty through education.

Yayasan Hiichiikok was set up as a means for HCK Capital Group and its subsidiaries to carry out is corporate social responsibility initiatives. Yayasan Hiichiikok is able to provide scholarships to deserving children under its care via its links to SEG International Berhad (SEGi) which operates a number of private tertiary education institutions as well as international schools throughout the country.

It is through this connection with SEGi that Yayasan Hiichiikok is able to provide avenues for deserving students under its care to fulfill their potential through higher education. Two such students from Yayasan Hiichiikok has certainly seized the opportunity after both were offered scholarships, inclusive of boarding, following exemplary SPM results.

Fong Boon Siew and Shanya Savantharaja Naidu, both aged 19, are currently pursuing Foundation in Arts programme at SEGi University, Kota Damansara. Fong’s ambitions is to become a cybersecurity expert after becoming interested in the subject during lockdown. Hours of delving on the subject convinced her that this was, indeed, her calling and she still cannot quite believe that she is able to pursue a Degree in Cybersecurity on a scholarship.

Shanya, meanwhile, has hopes of obtaining a Degree in Psychology after completing the Foundation programme. She, too, is ecstatic at the opportunity provided through Yayasan Hiichiikok firmly believing it to be a pathway to escape difficult circumstances. She is keen to point out that Yayasan Hiichiikok encourages all children under its care to strive for better academic results, with opportunities at both tertiary and vocational institutions available to deserving students.

“If not for the scholarship, I would not have been able to afford the degree programme at SEGi University,” says Shanya. “Higher education is a means for me to improve myself and I hope to be a role model to my siblings.”

Echoing those sentiments, Fong is eternally grateful to Yayasan Hiichiikok for providing her with the opportunity to study not just in a premium private tertiary institution but also in a multi-cultural environment. Noting interactions with international students as one of her favourite aspects of studying at SEGi, she urges all her peers at Yayasan Hiichiikok to seize the opportunity by concentrating all their efforts in their SPM examinations. Both scholars are also doing their part paying-it-forward by tutoring younger children at Yayasan Hiichiikok during weekends in the hope that others can emulate their achievements.

“Nothing is impossible. With a stable and secure environment coupled with the guidance of Yayasan Hiichiikok counsellors, students can concentrate their efforts in turning their lives into something positive through higher education,” counsels Fong. “Shanya and I are proof of that.”
