Wuan and I went to pray the Chinese New Year Eve Mass at the Church of Our Mother of Perpetual Help at Jalan La Salle in Ipoh just now. It was presided over by the Reverend Father Phillip Lai and the Reverend Father Joseph Stephen. Surprisingly, the Church was not packed to the brim as I had anticipated. That was my first time praying the Mass on Chinese New Year Eve. When Mass ended, the congregation was presented with ang paus and mandarin oranges to usher in the new year.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all my friends and readers of The Digital Awakening Gong Xi Fa Cai. May the new year brings an abundance of prosperity and joy to you and your family.
