Message from Cpl Ooi Chai Thuan RMAF (Rtd) after the event.
"Dear All Comrades,
The series of pictures you are receiving showed the brief commitment MACVA took part in the event. It was drizzling in the early morning, and all of us turned up an hour before the arrival of HRH Sultan of Selangor. We were in high spirit. The rain stoped then and the best cooling weather awaited all the participants.

While waiting for the announcement to start the walk, we carried the banner around and 'pacak' ourselves on one good spot. Our banner did speak. Many were surprised to see the 'MACVA Veterans' with them. Some asked if our Chinese veterans were many. They obviously did not believe we do have good numbers. Many people not only wanted know about us but interested to take photos with our banner and also congratulated us for having serve the country in 'mempertahankan negara'.

We brought 10kg of sweets and jelly cups. We distributed the sweets and jelly to small children to add to the early excitment of the Merdeka Day. The parents came to know about 'MACVA' then. All of us finished the 5km walk and it was a very good walking excercise. At the finishing point, we talked to a group of senior police officers and they were also pleased to have pictures taken with us.

We had Malaysian famous ex-footballers Dato Soh Chin Ann and Dato Santok Singh with us briefly and in photo session. We had veterans who did not know about MACVA from others and came forward to chit chat with us. We had people who approached us to take photos with our banner in prominent display.

Many more interesting interaction with the other participants we did from the beginning to the end of the AnakAnakWalk. Non of us got the prize of Proton Aris 1.6.
