Visit to priest 拜访神父
With guilt, we went to visit Fr. Anthony Chan this afternoon at the Church of St. Theresa, Pandamaran, Port Kelang. With the GPS, finding the church was easy.
Feeling guilty because this was the first time in many years that we visited him at his parish. I met him many times at church functions but it was always a "Hi" and "Bye".
Fr. Chan was surprised but happy to see us. He looked trim and was his usual jovial self. He looked much younger than a 83 years old priest.
I learned Catechism under Fr. Chan and baptised by him at the Holy Rosary Church more than 33 years ago.
He has retired but still active teaching Catechism to adults, celebrating Masses at St. Theresa Church and other parishes of Kelang District whenever he is needed. He still leads a busy life.
It was almost six in the evening after saying goodbye to Fr. Chan, so we went to Pandamaran market place to look for food. From far we noticed a crowded stall and thought it must be a popular place.
It was a Bak Kut Teh stall.
We have not eaten the famous Kelang Bak Kut Teh for many years. We joined the crowd. It was delicious.......yamyam!
Fat Fat Thursday... lean lean tomorrow - It is Friday ! just eat lah...
