Ipoh Chin Woo Parents Day

While I may have attended quite a number of Parent’s Day functions over these past couple of weeks, the one that stood out for me was this by Ipoh Chinese Chinwoo Athletic Association, or more popularly known as just Ipoh Chin Woo.

The reason being that apart from celebrating Parent’s Day, the association also decided to celebrate filial piety-cum-appreciation to our elders, and wushu masters at Ipoh Chin Woo. A most meaningful tea ceremony was held to mark the occasion. The event was held for the second year.

In his opening address, Mr. Looi Kim Hoo, PJK, the Vice President of Ipoh Chin Woo as Chairman of the Organising Committee, stressed the importance of filial piety, which has been practised in China some five thousand years ago, and which should be emulated even in modern times.

It is the responsibility of parents to educate children in this aspect of life. Children, in turn, show respect to elders and lead the Tao way of life. This results in family harmony.

Ipoh Chin Woo President, Dato’ Ooi Foh Sing, added that children should not be pampered, but ought to be taught right from a young age. This would certainly mould them to become useful members of our society.
