We had a good Easter celebration last weekend!
I'm happy that a lot of the members participated in different ways.
Giant Edward plucked up courage to act in Easter drama "The Final Solution". I think he did a GREAT job! His lines touched my heart. Very heart-felt!

Charming Yan Ming acted as prince in CCH drama! I'm waiting for the DVD to be out!
Ariel was helping out in Attributes while Sarah, Joe and Xiao Lu ushered in multiple services!
With concerted effort, the cg brought 30 friends! And many members were watching the Easter drama for the very 1st time! Working hard in ret now...
A few weeks back, I come across an article which struck a chord in my heart. It really encourages and cheers me on!
A very WISE man speaks...
"The value of a language is its usefulness, not just in Singapore, but also in the wider world. If you speak Hokkien or Cantonese, you reach some 60 million in Fujian and Taiwan, or about 100 million in Guangdong and Hong Kong. With Mandarin, you can speak to 1,300 million Chinese from all provinces in China."
"Did you watch the Beijing Olympics Opening? I was there. I was watching the reactions of the foreign leaders and I knew that they knew this is a country that is going to rise." - MM Lee
