9 February 2018. We were privileged to share this festive occasion with more than 60 seafarers from China, Philippines, Myanmar, India and Singapore. It was well attended by Chairman, Capt. Rob Walker, who opened the celebration with an opening speech, together with members of the Mission to Seafarers’ management committee (Mr SC Lim, Mr Victor Tan and Mr Vitalii Chaika) and our corporate partner from SMOU (Singapore Maritime Officer’s Union).
SMOU very kindly provided a wide spread of local delicacies with the highlight being a”Lohei” (Tossing of Raw fish salad) as a symbol of abundance for the rest of year. For many of the visiting seafarers this was a unique experience.
Goody bags were also given to seafarers who were thankful to MtSS and SMOU for organising the Lunar New Year celebration.
