CM Chow exudes new year vibe at Chowrasta market

WITH just two more weeks to go before all of us welcome year 2019 with its newly revived expectations and great tidings, Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow together with his team from the Tanjong and Padang Kota service centre distributed new year calendars to the traders and market-goers at Chowrasta market today.

From youngsters to elders, everyone was brimming with smiles while receiving the calendars from our very approachable chief minister who was warmly greeted by members of the public and some even seized the moment to take memorable photos with him.

During the walkabout which took place within the vicinity of the buzzing market, about 2,000 pieces of such calendars were distributed.
