MORE than 400 people turned up for Kampung Tunku assemblyman Lau Weng San’s Deepavali open house.
In his speech, Lau said he hoped the celebration would promote unity and help foster better ties among Malaysians.
“We celebrate all festivals as we are a multicultural society. However, we must also think about the poor and needy,” he said.
The guests were also entertained by traditional Indian dancers.
Later, Lau gave out Deepavali angpau to the children.
According to Kampung Baru Seri Setia village head Ding Eow Chai, this is the first Deepavali open house in years.
“This is a good opportunity for the villagers to come together and have a good time.”
