We were just by the beach. There are some very brave Chans who swam. Henry and Jonathan went even in the morning. Kallang and I watched from the balcony to make sure they kept to the warning by Charles, swim between the flags.
Twenty years ago, we had our first Chan family reunion and celebrated Father's 71st birthday. In Miri, Henry married Elley. We stayed at the Royal Rihga Hotel, now J.M. Marriot.
Ten years ago Wayne Kalang married Rosemary, and Father turned 81. We stayed at Kingwood Hotel in Sibu.
Last weekend, Katie married Matt, Charles turned 61. Some of us stayed at the Penthouses at Surfers Paradise.

These were wonderful times.
