More Than 200 Elderly Folk From Kreta Ayer Revel In CNY Festivities With APB

Hi Huneybees,

More than two hundred elderly persons living in the Kreta Ayer constituency were treated to an evening of food, fun and festivity as part of the celebrations to usher in the upcoming Year of the Water Dragon.

Hosted by Asia Pacific Breweries Singapore (APBS) at Kreta Ayer Square in Chinatown, an intimate charity dinner was held to enhance the spirit of "togetherness" amongst the elderly community.

Guest of Honour - Dr Lili Neo was seated.
Yum Seng!

After a little performance and speech, the dinner has officially started.

First dish has got to be the Yu Sheng! How can you miss that on a CNY dinner right?

Wonder what's everyone wishing for as they 'mixed' the ingredients together.

APBS staff was on the ground as hosts to the elderly guests, providing the personal touch to serve them a sumptuous spread and provide an evening to remember. Even blogger Gin Wong was there to volunteer and helped with the beer.

 In between, there were some performances and more food!


This lady was super happy and she was dancing, singing along with the performance. A little high?

Mr Michael Chin, General Manager, APBS, along with Dr Lily Neo, MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC and Adviser to Kreta Ayer-Kim Seng GROs ended the evening of festivities by personally handing out red packets (ang baos) to each of the elderly folk in attendance at the event.

Dr Lili Neo. She totally never changes. I used to enter into art competitions and Dr Lili Neo was the one who would hand me my certs and trophies. It's amazing she looks the same!

Said Mr Chin, “Organising this Chinese New Year charity dinner has become a tradition for APB Singapore and it gives us the opportunity to give back to the community each year. This year’s dinner event is significant as it marks the tenth year that we have hosted it for the elderly living in Kreta Ayer and we will work towards supporting the community them in the years ahead.” 

Check out the crowd that night. They were all here for the entertainment on stage.
