Attending Australia Day 2006 cocktail party

Last evening, I attended the Australia Day 2006 cocktail party at the High Commission in Kuala Lumpur. I also met up friends like MCA's Tan Chai Ho, DAP's Ronnie Liu, PAS's Kamarudin Jaffar as well as KeADILan's Tian Chua and Dr. Xavier Jayakumar.

Since about 10 years ago, attending Australia Day cocktail party has been my pre-Chinese New Year 'ritual'. As a matter of fact, I spent 5 Chinese New Years in Melbourne from 1982 to 1986.
