At the home of my former missionary companion David Soon (behind me) with my oldest brother and wife(right of me). Memories of my mission with David Soon in Malaysia are found here
Mr Poon was also my Karate master who not only taught me martial arts but was an exemplary teacher of humility and self discipline that had greatly influenced my life since my days in St Johns Institution. (1971 to 1975)
On Christmas Eve
We were happy to have Sharon Wong with Derrick from KL who got a ride from me on this trip, to join us for our simple dinner.
On Christmas Day
Our first visitors on Christmas day were none other than our close neighbors Dixon Grant with his wife Chelsea and their new baby Desmond Sheng Grant. They had surprised us by taking the trouble to roast a turkey for us and brought it to our home for lunch.
I was honored to carve up the turkey as I usually do yearly to serve everyone on the table.
How wonderful our Christmas turned out to be, thanks to the Grants who truly brought the spirit of Christmas to our home with their thoughtful minds and kind hearts
Merry Christmas Everyone from all of us in Singapore!
