An Indoor Playground for Pei Shin

Pei Shin, 8, and her family enjoyed a fun day out in Melaka and came home to the surprise of her very own indoor playground, so she could play on the slide at any time of the day, rain or shine!

Age: 8 (2020)

Illness: Brain tumour; anaplastic ependymoma

Wish: To have an indoor playground

Wish Day: 1st March 2020

Eight-year-old Pei Shin is probably one of the sweetest girls you’ll ever meet. Her doe-like eyes will instantly melt your heart and put a big smile on your face. She is shy, but also full of curiosity. Pei Shin was diagnosed with Anaplastic Ependymoma and had to undergo surgery to remove the tumour. Her wish was to have an indoor playground set in the comfort of her own home, so she can play on the slide at any time of day, rain or shine!

On the 1st of March, the Make-A-Wish Malaysia team headed to Melaka to meet Pei Shin and her family. After a round of introductions, Pei Shin’s dad, Frankie, and Sim stayed behind to start assembling Pei Shin’s new indoor playground; while Carol and Yi Xian brought Pei Shin and her mum to MAMEE Jonker House where the team was waiting with a line-up of fun activities prepared. Shortly thereafter, the others joined them for a delicious lunch.

However, the best part of the day was yet to come. When their car pulled into to the driveway of her home, Pei Shin's face instantly lit up with excitement and awe upon the sight of her brand new indoor playground! She ran up to give the slide a go immediately!

The Make-A-Wish team soon bid farewell to Pei Shin and her family so they could have more bonding time at her new indoor playground. We hope Pei Shin continues to be the beaming light that she is!
