Thereafter, our Honorary Advisor and Honorary Life Patron cum Trustee Clan Elder Liat Kiat (皇冠徽章), our President Clan Elder Lian Kwang and Liu Kwee Tang's Chairman led all members to pay respects to the ancestors.

The atmosphere was very joyful and festive.

The emcee, then, requested everyone to rise and announced the commencement of "Lao Yu Sheng 捞鱼生" on his cue. The festivities were brought to a climax when all participants sang a rendition of Chinese New Year melodies together. Applause and laughter filled the venue.

Accompanied by cheerful songs, our President Clan Elder Lian Kwang together with Liu Kwee Tang's Honorary Advisor, Jurong GRC MP Clan Elder Ang Wei Neng went around distributing special Hongbaos (红包) to participants aged 65 years old and above, blessing them with good health and longevity as a gesture of appreciation and respect for our pioneers.
