Lunch was a yummy Chinese style dishes served by individual tables. I observed that most of the other performers in the 2 hour plus programme were there just as performers. They were not involved in the lunch. So, I must thank the organisers for being invited as guests for Lunch too!

Chee cheong fun heh chee cheong fun
That song went down very well with the crowd.
Our 2nd number was that one time popular " Down By The Sea"..a campfire round, again almost half a century ago. I have been invited to many campfires over the last 40 odd years and in not a single one had I heard this song being sung. The scouts have "lost" it completely over the years.
To show we were capable of playing and singing different kinds of music, I included a calypso
After that first 5 songs, I announced that we'd be doing our final 2 songs as a medley.
As both these songs have been incorporated into our Sing Singapore segments over the years, many of those present could sing along with us.
Table 4 - had 2 special guests, Unk Dicko and Darren Goh
SM Goh and his fellow MPs singing one last song
Unk Dicko was privileged to have helped Marine Parade GRC and 800 seniors make Grandparents Day celebrations an especially enjoyable and memorable one.
