翁氏总会于五月一日在酒楼设宴庆祝双亲节,招待约200名参加的会员及亲属;担任主宾的马林百列集选区议员花蒂玛医生促请众人,除了在父亲节或母亲节之外,平时也要真心孝敬父母。她说,常陪伴父母,让父母开心,就是尽孝。她用生涩的华语祝福参加午餐宴会的每一个人"天天开心,幸福快乐!"

主席两光宗长说,总会注重孝道,七年前开始举办双亲节,一年一度,至今办了七届,目的是要提醒会员和子女关爱父母,保持家庭和谐、快乐。

庆祝宴在千禧楼(巴耶利峇)酒楼举行,获得理事和会员热烈反应。两光宗长说:"今年总会决定豁免会员缴付每人40 元宴会参加费,与此同时,参加会员可携带一名亲人出席,这是因为总会考虑到行情不好,同时也希望借这个机会回馈会员的支持。"

连同每桌送上一个供10人享用的蛋糕,公会总共负担了约6000多元的费用。主席两光宗长也希望双亲节庆祝会能促进年轻一代的联系,望他/她们七月尾时能踊跃参加总会举办的青年节烤肉会。



On 1st May 2016, Ang Shee General Association held a lunch reception for about 200 clan members and their relatives who participated. Associate Professor Fatimah Lateef, Member of Parliament for Marine Parade GRC (Geylang Serai), was invited as Guest-of-Honour for the event.

In her speech in Mandarin and English, Dr Fatimah highlighted the importance of filial piety, which should be practiced every day, and not only on Mother's or Father's Day. She told the audience that spending time with parents and doing small things that will make them happy would be considered as carrying out the duty of filial piety. At the end of her speech, Dr Fatimah wished everyone to be happy and stay blessed every day.

President clan elder Lian Kwang, who spoke later, said that the association has always placed an emphasis on the importance of filial piety, and has organised the annual Parents' Day celebration event since 2009. The aim of the Parents' Day is to remind clan members and their children to show care and affection towards their parents at all times and the need to maintain harmonious family relations.

This lunch banquet gathering which was held at Qian Xi (Paya Lebar) Restaurant, gained enthusiastic responses from committee and clan members. President clan elder Lian Kwang said that in recognition of the member's support, and taking into consideration the current economic downturn, the committee had decided to absorb the cost of one ticket ($40) per member for the lunch reception. On top of that, each member was also allowed to bring along a family member for free.

Together with a cake for every table, the association had spent more than $6000 for the entire lunch reception. President Clan elder Lian Kwang also hoped that this event had allowed for better interaction and bonding among the young members, and that they would actively participate in the Youth Day barbecue gathering scheduled at the end of July.
