Minister Ong and MPs Chinese New Year Visit
Today is the second day of the lunar new year. Minister Ong Ye Kung and the MPs (Mr. Vikram Nair and Mr. Amrin Amin) arrived in the morning at our monastery. Minister Ong delivered a short speech to wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year and hoped for more community spiritedness for the good of the nation. Together with the rest of the MPs, he distributed Ang Pows to all present at the main shrine hall.
Minister Ong then visited the exhibits on level 4 and also demonstrated his calligraphy skills by writing "吉祥如意" which was presented to Master Jing Yuan. In return, Master Jing Yuan gave the Minister and MPs each a "招财猫" as a token of blessing to wish them good luck for the year ahead.
