Opening Ceremony of River HongBao@ Floating Platform

I met Wilfrid, the secretary of Association of Bloggers (Singapore), to brief him on our assignment tonight. We arrived at the Floating Platform and went to collect our media passes. Both of us couldn't help taking a photo of this significant moment.

We standby at the entrance arch to welcome Guest-of-Honour Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Home Affairs Mr Wong Kan Seng. I was surprised to see Acting Minister for Manpower Mr Gan Kim Yong in the VIP group. Prominent businessmen, Mr Wee Cho Yaw (UOB Chairman) and Mr Chua Tian Poh (Chairman & CEO Ho Bee Group) were also present.

Guest-of-Honour DPM and Minister for Home Affairs Mr Wong Kan Seng and VIPs fired firecrackers declaring opening of River HongBao 2009. Many leaders came with their families to visit River HongBao 2009.

Performers from Hubei Art College and Nanjing Acrobatic Troupe put up acrobatic performances and an amazing ballet. They were so good, I applause until my hands ached. The girls are very good looking. You must come watch them perform.

We followed the VIPs to tour River HongBao. Wilfrid had to run ahead of the VIPs and jostle with photographers from the mainstream media for photos. This is really fun for both of us.

We were treated to a sumptious array of dimsum after the event. We had a chance to chat and take photos with the friendly VIPs. What a night!
