Something for my mom

First of all, we would like to take this opportunity to greet everyone in love, joy and peace. The organising committee would like to thank everyone for coming from all over Sabah for this year's installment of our Class Reunion.

This year's Reunion is the 3rd time we are meeting since that momentuous day in 1974, and your presence here with us is a great encouragement to everyone. We, the organising committee, would like to take this opportunity to thank Vun for organising the very first reunion dinner 3 years ago. And if it were not for him, some of us would not have been able to meet up with each other for the rest of our lives since the day we left school.

After so long, some of us have kept in touch, but some have gone 'missing'. And thanks to this reunion dinner, we are able to come back together, as friends and equals. And as we gather, let us enjoy each other's presence with a sense of innocence, just like when we left school, when there was no status, when all of us had were our dreams of making it big in life, and as we contemplate both success and failure, let us learn from one another, and encourage each other in sincerity and love.

As we grow older, and wiser, I think that most of us share the same sentiment, where the most important thing in life is no longer success, nor riches, nor material wealth, but the ability to maintain relationships as our priority. 30 over years out in this world have taught me one thing, that is to cherish the moments of joy, to cherish good health, to cherish times of togetherness, of peace, and of kinship.

So, let all of us share this night as who we really are, without pretense, without status quo, and without prejudice, simply as ex-classmates.

With that, we from the organising committee hope that you will be able to have fun this time around, and do forgive us if ever there is a mistake here or there in our organisation for we are working with very limited resources.

And we hope that the next reunion will be a better affair, and not too distant in the future.

Once again, thank you, and enjoy.

Organising Committee Chairperson.
