HO AM I (何处一盏灯) is a drama that traces the life and contributions of late Venerable Ho Yuen Hoe who represented different facets of a woman’s life – a filial daughter, a loving mother, an entrepreneur, a nun, a carer of elderly and a community leader. Put up by popular local artistes like 叶世品, 谢静仪, 易凌, 许桂荧, 管雪梅, 孙葆伶and 王利秦 as well as 有维法师, the musical highlights Ven Ho’s experiences from her bitter childhood days till the latter half of her life where she devoted selflessly to the care of many elderly.
The remarkable history of Ven Ho affords a peek into the traditional trades that sustained the livelihoods of our forefathers, and the samsui women who occupy a unique place in our nation building. Ven Ho’s single minded pursuit was to nurture and care for women in need in her sheltered home. As a “vegetarian lady” she cooked and sold vegetarian food to support them and brought light into their lives. Her enduring faith, resilience and desire for a better home for the elderly culminated in the development of the Man Fut Tong Nursing Home.
Expect to be deeply moved and touched by the wholehearted devotion Ven Ho has towards her passion for serving others and be enlightened about life beyond material gains. Through this heartfelt musical, we hope to spread her indomitable spirit of love and care for others to many more out there and as a role model for all to emulate.
