Kampung Tunku state assemblyman (ADUN) YB Lau Weng San was welcomed with open arms during his walkabout at the commercial areas of Section 21 SEA Park in Petaling Jaya on Sunday morning 23rd January 2011.
Many among the traders, business owners, customers and residents recognised Lau when he approached to shake hands and wish them “Gong Xi Fa Cai” (Wishing You A Properous New Year).
Lau Weng San went on a stall-to-stall visit at the SEA Park wet market and visited the shops in the commercial areas handing out Chinese New Year lanterns and angpow packets to traders and business owners in conjunction with the upcoming Lunar New Year.
The people were smiling and greeting their YB (Yang Berhormat). They were excited and happy in the interaction with their “wakil rakyat” (elected representative). Many enthusiastically posed for photos with their YB.
During the walkabout, the people spoke to him and some of them used the opportunity to highlight their problems and concerns.
Assisting Lau in the two-hour-long walkabout were Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) councillor Jeyaseelen Anthony, supporters and volunteers who completed the occassion at 10.30 am with light meal and drinks at Khoong Restaurant in Jalan 21/17.
