Earth Hour at Traders Inn

How time flies! This is the fourth year that we're witnessing "Earth Hour" at Traders Inn. My colleagues were very serious in seeing that all the non-essential lights were switched off at 8.30pm and switched back on at exactly 9.30pm, not a minute early! However, please bear in mind that conservation of energy is an ongoing process and I've a habit of switching off all electrical appliances, air-conditioning, lightings and even the water pump when there's no one in the house and not for that single hour when we celebrate "Earth Hour" once a year!

This morning, the Chinese Associations of Brunei Darussalam celebrated Chinese New Year with His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei Darussalam and other royal family members at the International Convention Centre at Berakas. Representatives from Persatuan Warganegara Malaysia (including yours truly) assembled at Happy Dean Restaurant at 7.30am for breakfast and carpooled to the venue as there were limited car passes available. The Royal entourage arrived at 10.00am and were treated to cultural dances, Chinese musical instruments performances and wushu; all performed by students from Chung Hwa Middle School. There were more than 1,000 invited guests and it was indeed an honour for the Chinese community that His Majesty consented to grace this event. Belated "Gong Xi Fa Cai!"
