I took the liberty of adding the comments on Penang Lang Whatsapp Group:

From Kenneth Oh ( the one in light blue floral shirt below):-

” Thanks  Teong Seng and Hock Eng for organising our get-together, Sing Hoong for driving us there and the birthday touch foe HE ( Hock Eng ) with a nice mango cheese cake, Ban Bee for also driving us and extending our mainland visit with a tour of ECO World’s show units, Hong San for your kind generosity in treating us all this sumptuous lunch, and Poh Weng and Saw Chin for opening their house for those of us who stayed on for the best home toasted home-brewed coffee, best home-grown star fruit and custard apple and other delightful treats. It was an enjoyable day out and I’m sure everyone’s happy with the warm fellowship. May the Birthday joy stay aglow and linger on our dear Taikor and stay healthy and safe, all of us.

Pardon me, Soo Peng ( blogger ), I knew at the back of my mind I’ve missed something … of course we can’t miss out that expensive RM15k (?!) camera … oops the cameraman too. Thx for lugging it along and taking our handsome 66+ yr young faces ( when looking back in the years to come). ”

Thank you the kind narration and comments.
