Pertama sekali, saya ingin mengucapkan ribuan terima
kasih kepada semua penghuni di Kawasan Parlimen Kelana
Jaya. Your presence tonight make it a special night. This is
a night that we blend 2 cultures together, moon cakes with
ketupat, pelita with tanglung, silat dan wushu, Orang Melayu
dan Orang Tionghua, tidak lupa Kakak dan Abang dari
kaum India dan kaum-kaum lain di Malaysia Timur. What
we have seen here tonight, do not take it for granted, it is
the continuous efforts of our forefathers and present
leadership, that we have this beautiful place called
I would like to thank Puan Sri Susan Cheah, Mr. HC Chan
and Sunway Pyramid, without your supports, we will not be
able to organize tonight Malam Mesra Raya Tanglung in this
world class magnificent place. Mr. Chan & Puan Sri, we
wish to have your continuous supports in years to come.
Not forgetting Ministry of Information, Communication
& Culture, has generously supported tonight event. The
organizing committee, under the able leadership of Wong
Kok Ken, has worked for many weeks to make this a
memorable event, Thank you.
Saya juga ingin mengambil kesempatan mengucapkan
terimakasih di atas kehadiran Dato Sri Ong Tee Keat &
Datin Sri Jane Ong. You were with us last moon cake
festival at USJ Summits Shopping Complex, you came
to officiate our new MCA Division office November last
year, you were with us this February to witness our
Division committee members swearing-in ceremony.
You were also present in the LRT briefing and dialogue
on 25-07-09 at 3KSports Complex. With your tight
schedule, yet you always have Kelana Jaya at heart.
Thank you, Dato Sri.
MCA has always been here, rain or shine, tsunami
or not; we do not run away from our responsibilities
as community and political leaders. We do not deserted
our supporters, neither the residents after the last election.
Whatever happened in last election, has made us aware that
we have not heard enough, we know that we have to work
harder than before. Under the leadership of Dato Sri Najib
Tun Razak and Dato Sri Ong Tee Keat, we will not only work
on local issues, but work even harder on issues that we and
the Rakyat both cannot tolerate. Give us a chance to prove
that, we can be as good, if not better.
Before I end, let me share with you what I have written in
my blog for this special occasion: Poem and Pantun in 3
The Moon cake Festival

An auspicious occasion --
Coinciding with Hari Raya Aidilfitri festivity
A season of double joy.

Worked hard to make this place our home.
