What a happy red-packet filled Spring Dinner last night at Plaza Restaurant with over 100 Rotarians, spouses, alumni, Rotaractors, sponsored students.​and guests. Our tradition of lai see presentation was again the high point of the evening, thanks to our generous Rotarians and guest Johnny Chong.

A big thank you also to Rtn Lei Loi Tak for his very generous donation of $10,000 lai see money again this year for the red packet lucky draw session as well for his famous cookies. Of course, the evening was perfectly hosted by our Club Administration Chair PP Choi who was giving ‘ instructions’ at the right moment amidst the excitement stirring up within the rotaractors and the children. Thank you PP Choi.IMG_9133

HappyGarden_Feb182016During the evening, I also reported on our new ‘ Happy Garden ‘ horticulture therapy service project for Fuhong’s mentally-ill rehabilitating service users . The service users have been working with devotion and care on the rooftop garden of our Adopt-a-School St Paul’s School for several weeks and yesterday morning , a few of us visited the garden and harvested the first organic produce- radish. Please take a look at the photos attached .We hope to arrange visits for you all in future when the garden is in full bloom for vegetables, flowers and fruits.

Happy box collection was really good at $4000.
