My Hosting Script for The National Day Event

I just managed to work out the draft hosting script for the National Day Event I am hosting. I am thankful for all the comments that I have received from my fellow RC members and friends.
Just feel that sometimes, no matter whatever you do, some people, no matter for what reasons, will not be happy with the arrangements. I just wish to say that I am already trying my best to try to get this event going, considering the fact, that this is the 1st time I am organising an RC event. I have also tried my best, despite the fact that I would like to have a free hand to organise the event, just like what I usually do for the KTV events I have on Facebook, I accommodated to the requests that I should somehow follow the past years’ format to do the event. I know that I am not very familiar with how things are run at the RC, therefore in the end, my organising committee only made some changes to the event as we had a limited budget to work on. I even volunteered myself to do the hosting for the event as the members feedbacked to me that our budget for the lucky draw would not be enough if we were to hire a host for 2 hours.
Anyway, I will continue to do my best, and hope that everything turns out well on Tuesday.
Below is a draft of my hosting script. Please feel free to give your comments.
Good morning to all RC members, residents, friends, ladies & gentlemen,
My name is Paul, and I will be your emcee for the 2nd half of this event, which will include the quiz segment, the prize presentation ceremony for the art competition, the lucky draw, followed by lunch.
For those of you who are more attracted by the snake & ladders game that we are having at the other corner, you can do so. Not to worry, there will be prizes for the kids who are participating in the snake & ladders game as well. =)
Let’s start off with the quiz segment. If you know the answers to the questions, please make your way up on stage. The one with the correct answer gets a prize. =) I am a little nervous here as this is my 1st time hosting an event for all of you. =)
Emcee to start asking questions, which will include these 6 questions at the end, before the conduct of the prize presentation for the art competition & the conduct of the lucky draw.

The Pledge in English

The moment that everyone has been waiting for has arrived. I would like to invite our Jalan Kayu RC Zone 4 chairman, Mr. James Soh on stage to distribute the lucky draw prizes.

An Update To The Walking Bus Guide

I decided to clear my mind of the work troubles that I decided to take the bus and update my bus routes knowledge with the recent amendments to some of the bus services in the area that I am staying in and the transition to the Bus Contracting Model, where LTA is now the central route planner of the bus routes.
Here are the list of updated bus routes that I have known since my last post about this in 2014.

Pantang- Meaning Things Not To Do In Hokkien

There are certain things which some Chinese are pretty particular with:- Happy and sad events can't clash together within 100 days to a year. If a relative or loved one were to pass away, the immediate family member can't attend a happy event, like wedding & housewarming.The Teochews treat their eldest male grandchild as their youngest son. If you are getting married & your friend who is getting married invites you to his wedding, u are not allowed to attend. The old people say happy events clash.The red packet can't be given twice for a happy event. Likewise for the condolence packet.One should not give shoes or lamp to a birthday boy or gal, as it is believed that you may bring the person to his deathbed.These are some interesting stuff to share, especially to some blog readers who are not living in a place filled with Chinese.
