Jessy Lai awarded Excellent Chinese Contribution from IAC

After attending the cheque handover ceremony hosted by Regeneration Society yesterday, I didn’t return to Malaysia. That’s because I have a meeting today with Ms. Liu, chairperson of The Investment Association of China (IAC).

Last year, I was appointed as chairperson of the Foreign Investments Committee of the IAC. This year, they once again honoured me with the Excellent Chinese Contribution Award, in recognition of my efforts in the IAC. I am very thankful for this honour.

Today is also the last day of Chinese New Year, and the Spring Lantern Festival. It is apt that Ms. Liu and I will be meeting at a Chinese restaurant and enjoying “Poon Choi”, a traditional Chinese festive dish.

At the dinner, we discussed about future collaborations, and followed up with casual chats about life. It was a wonderful meeting. I am deeply grateful to have met Ms. Liu at this meeting. It makes me feel at home in a foreign country!

昨天我出席了由再生慈善基金主办的支票移交活动后,并没有飞回马,因为今天我与中国投资协会海外投资联合会会长刘雄英有有一个聚餐。

去年,很荣幸中国投资协会海外投资联合会委任了我为海外投资联盟主席。今年,中国投资协会海外投资联合会再次颁发了“海外侨领情系中华杰出贡献奖”于我,非常感谢。刘雄英会长专程从中国来香港与我相见,亲自将这份荣誉送到我手上,对此,我深表感恩与感激。

恰逢今天是农历新春最后一个节日,是中国人最注重的元宵节,我与刘雄英会长也很应景,相约到香港上水一个地道的围村餐厅,享用了传统的节庆菜肴——盆菜。

在餐聚上,我们深入的探讨接下来我与中国投资协会的合作计划。聊完公事后,我们很自然的就聊到彼此的生活的趣事,气氛十分愉悦。非常感动能在元宵节这天与刘雄英会长团聚,让我在异乡亦能感受到很大很大的温暖!
