Our group stayed in Hong Kong for three nights and returned to Kuala Lumpur on 23 June 2009.
We have a very enjoyable, memorable and ‘funtastic’ trip there despite the big scare of H1N1 in Hong Kong. There were plenty of fellowship and singing with the Hong Kong Lions and besides that we also have the opportunity to meet Lions from Singapore, Thailand and Taiwan who were there for this Anniversary Celebrations as well. See photos below:

For those who have to miss this trip due to any reason, we hope that you will not miss the next one with our sister club whenever one is organized. The warmth and the kind hospitality shown to us are hard to describe in a few words but I can say that it will be difficult (not impossible with a little bit of hard work) to emulate them. I am sure our members will be able to rise to the occasion in showing our Malaysian warmth whenever our sister club members are in town. It is my hope that with such trips both our club and its members can forge ahead a closer relationship in the many years to come. Once again thank you to the members from the Lions Club of Kwun Tong, Hong Kong for this memorable trip. Our Best Wishes of Good Health and Wealth to all of you, in Hong Kong.
