Courtesy Call on Pehin Lau Ah Kok

Yesterday, The President of PWM, Mr. James Lee and several members paid a courtesy call on Pehin Kapitan China Kornia Diraja Dato Paduka Lau Ah Kok at his residence at Kg. Manggis, Jalan Muara. Prior to our visit, we were being informed that we are not to wear black attire for the visit. The 95 years old Pehin is a respected Chinese leader in Brunei Darussalam and the founder of the Hua Ho supermarket chain which currently has ten branches in Brunei Darussalam. Besides his supermarket business, Pehin Lau also has businesses in agriculture and poultry farming. Throughout our hi-tea session, Pehin talked about his life, his achievements and his principles in doing business. Integrity, loyalty and honesty is what he preaches to us and he also emphasizes to us not to drink, smoke or gamble (good advice). This is the first time I had the opportunity to meet Pehin and his humility moved me and we wish Pehin the best of health!
