It was truly and indeed a Malaysian event where a total of 96 Chinese buddies and wives came together to celebrate the birthday of a Malay colleague. During the celebration, a 'Birthday Gift' free will round was carried out where a total of RM1260.00 was collected. Brig Gen Dato' Goh Seng Toh RMAF (Rtd) presented Hj Mohamad Arbe with the 'Birthday Gift' collection and a memento plaque for the occasion. Ooi Chai Thuan presented him with the signed Birthday Card.
