叶子杰Eddy Yap,诚如他自己在<首届新加坡华语演讲公开赛>中所言,他是一个沉默而胆怯的英校生,但是,却在朋友的鼓励下,勇敢地踏出第一步,走上讲台演讲,他希望有更多人和他一样, 踏出第一步,有话敢敢讲.

是的,有话敢敢讲! 这应该是子杰的座右铭吧!看到他在官方网站民情组REACH,大胆进言,最终还得到民情组颁发的杰出贡献奖,我们看到了不一样的叶子杰,他从沉默而胆怯,到今天自信满满发言,他的故事,足以激励和感染更多人,发挥内在潜能,为自己也为别人带来自信,活出更精彩的人生.

这些年来,子杰参与了<快乐天使>的乐龄社区义务活动,接触了不少老人家,<快乐天使>活动也因为有他的加入而变得更精彩,他以非常便宜的价格,自己组装了一套音响系统,带到组屋楼下,让老人家近在咫尺中欢歌起舞,增添生活乐趣.

衷心感谢叶子杰,也深深祝福他,继续完成他的理想.

Eddy Yap, like what he said during the <first Singapore Chinese Speech Competition>, he is a silent and timid chap from the English stream. Encouraged by friends, Eddy made a gallant attempt to give a speech (in Mandarin) on the podium. He hopes more people would be inspired by him to take their first step and dare to speak their mind.

Dare to speak one’s mind – this should be the motto of Eddy. Eddy has been seen posting his opinions on REACH’s official website, and this has since earned him an Outstanding Contributor’s Award. We are seeing a different Eddy Yap — from a silence and timid person to now a confident and outspoken one. His story is good enough to inspire and infect more people to bring out their inner potential which in turn benefit oneself and others with their self-confidence and to live a more exciting life.

For the past few years, Eddy Yap has been involved in Happy Angels’ senior community volunteer activities and has contacted a lot of elderly people. Happy Angels’ activities have also become more fun and exciting with his involvement. He has assembled a sound system with cheap materials and brings it to the void decks so that the elderly persons in the neighbourhood can sing and dance, adding enjoyment to life.

Heartfelt thanks to Eddy Yap. We also wish Eddy will succeed in his aspirations.

Honouring active contributors (1 May 2012)

REACH Media Release on Contributors’ Forum 2012 [web]

Issued by
REACH
2 May 2012

PROFILE OF OUTSTANDING REACH CONTRIBUTORS

Mr Yap Tze Kiat Eddy, 48, Purchasing Officer
Mr Eddy Yap, or more affectionately known as „GuardianAngel’ on the REACH Discussion Forum, has been a REACH Member since 2009.
In the last two years, he has been a very active contributor who has shared close to 1,000 posts, one of the highest on the REACH Discussion Forum, earning him the status of a Guru on the Forum.
Mr Yap‟s comments on the Discussion Forum are genuinely expressed, often with a sense of humour, but always a catalyst for many insightful discussions online.
He is seen as a opinion leader amongst other contributors on the REACH Discussion Forum, often engaging other forumers and steering the discussion towards a more moderate and considerate stance.
As an indication of support to his feedback, Mr Yap has garnered more than 400 „likes‟ to various comments and feedback from other contributors. In a recent thread started by contributors on their favourite forummers, GuardianAngel was mentioned as one of their forummers of choice.
He regularly starts discussion threads on various community-related issues, especially on improvements to make Singapore a better home. A recent example of Mr Yap‟s suggestion was for Singaporeans to be more aware of the importance of maintaining racial harmony. He called for Singaporeans to recognise our unique multi-racial society which he believes is a factor in building up the nation‟s resilience.
He has also made many suggestions to encourage more Singaporeans and REACH contributors to come forward and participate in giving their views in shaping Singapore.
Other topics close to his heart include the plight of our ageing Singaporeans, and what more can be done to support our seniors through revised housing and healthcare policies. Always with a sense of wit, Mr Yap has a knack for injecting humour in many of his feedback and posts.

Proposal of elderly new living concept

There have been a significant number of cases involving elderly people dying alone in their apartments, without anyone noticing this tragedy. Our volunteer Eddy Yap specially came up with a blueprint of how the elderly can live safely in their apartments, thereby minimizing the chances of such a tragedy repeating itself, and at the same time allowing elderly people to have more chances for interaction, ensure that they stay mentally active, and share happy moments in their twilight years.

This blueprint has already been presented to the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Community Development, Youth, and Sports on 31-3-2011 for their research and consideration.

We welcome everyone to contribute their opinions. Thank you!

有感独居老人臭死屋内无人知晓的事件层出不穷,我们的义工 Eddy Yap 特此绘出了一个供长者们安居的住屋蓝图,以减少这类悲剧继续发生,同时也让长者们之间有更多交流的机会,保持脑筋灵活,共享灿烂欢愉的晚年生活.

这个蓝图已经于2011年3月31日呈交给总理公署及社会发展青年及体育部研究和探讨.欢迎大家提出您的看法.

谢谢!
