5 May Gathering & information about 2 June Gathering

(from e-mail by Lim Yoke Kim)

 

I am writing this without first reading my email so there could be a repetition of what is said by others.

The gathering on 5 May, when Fook Wah came a-calling, was held at the Executive Dining Lounge in PJ New Town.  All of us had a good time catching up and saying goodbye at about midnight was a long drawn affair.

We must thank Cynthia and Mary for all the hard work (and expense) they put in to organise the function - a lot of phone calls, email messages, sms messages, etc.)  It was especially difficult since the Lounge needed to know the exact number attending in order to prepare enough food.  The organisers also tried their best to keep prices down. 

 

Special thanks to Lee Kang Hai who brought along his delicious home-made chendol, Melaka special muruku and nonya kuih.  Everyone enjoyed these specialties before dinner was served at 8.30 p.m.

 

During the function, Cheah Phee Eng briefed  us about the 2006 Reunion.  All of us are eagerly looking forward to it but we  have to wait for him to finalise his programme  and inform us.

The next Kirkby Gathering is on 2 June when Mimi Foo and husband, Jim, will be in town on the way to Ipoh.
