The Hainan Association Kuala Belait paid tribute to the elderly by holding a dinner at the Meng Fang restaurant on Saturday (09-January-2010) evening. The audience was treated to entertainment and lucky draw.
In Brunei Darussalam, all the Chinese associations will be hosting celebrations for the elderly to honour their contributions. The celebrations could help instil in youths the culture of showing respect to senior citizens. This basically says that you can not be respected if you can not show respect. If we want young people to show respect to our elders, then we need to begin to expect and demand that our children begin respecting their elders from the time they can talk and walk.
