Literary Walk: Precious Love

25 February, 2024

Organised by Migrant Writers of Singapore and supported by Sing Lit Station

A day to remember!

It was one fine day on the 25th of February when I joined the Literary Walk by the Migrant Writers of Singapore at Labrador Park. We met up at Labrador MRT station with the total of 16 participants and from there, we walked to the park while having conversation. Upon reaching, one of the Team Leaders Syarifitriyah Rahmani led a warm up dance exercise which everyone enjoyed. We then began the reflective sharing by forming a big circle and I proceeded to reading the story titled “I Wish You Enough” by Brighteyes.

Reflecting on the story which the participants bravely and actively shared about great love, grief, regret, longing, and most of all, how they strongly overcame all the challenges in their lives because of unconditional love. I was one of those who were touched by the stories and my heart was devastated while listening to what they’ve been through. There were sharings about a father who were seriously ill and couldn’t recognise his children which was truly painful, one brother needed to sacrifice his studies to take up responsibility for their family because of his dad’s medical expenses but eventually passed away. There was also a heartwarming story about how a daughter adored her father so much. It was an intense sharing!

After that, we asked the participants to form three groups for the team building game called ‘Pyramid Cup’. Each team played their best but there was only one winner declared.

We wrapped up the activity by having some light snacks and group photos.

I realised that truly, love conquers all. I hope that we try to show our love evryday to our loved ones before its too late.

Thank you so much Migrant Writers of Singapore for this meaningful event and Sing Lit Station for the support. Thank you to my fellow members of the organising committee, Nelie Bautista, Syarifitriyah Rahmani, Stephanie Raciles and Jenelyn Leyble.
