Welcome Lunch At Hakka Restaurant
30 Jul 17
More than 150 MACVs attended a lunch get together at the Hakka Restaurant located at Jalan Kia Peng, Kuala Lumpur. The event was to welcome MACVA members who joined after the MACVA 19 Mac 17 AGM. The event was hosted by MACVA President Maj Tan Pau Son (Rtd). Besides those from Klang Valley, MACVs came from Penang, Butterworth, Ipoh, Melaka and Johor Bahru.

The spirit was extremely lively as some Veterans met their brother in arms for the first time in 15 years after retiring from the service. MACVs present were busy catching up with old comrades and getting aquainted with new one's from other services. It was truly a moment to be treasure as a few senior Veterans; well into their 70's were seen hugging each other. The comradeship and camaraderie exhibited were fantastic. Thank you Mr President for a jovial and memorable occassion.
