The guests were treated to
a 10-course Chinese dinner and bowls of tang
yuan (glutinous rice balls in syrup).
There was also a competition to see who could
make the most tang yuan.
Division chief Ong Chong Swen said the winter
solstice was an important event for the Chinese
community and families should get together to
eat tang yuan.
"We have been celebrating the festival with
local leaders for four years," said Ong, who is
also the Kelana Jaya parliament coordinator.
"I want to express my gratitude to all for
working as a team this whole year," she said.
The community leaders were from a line dance
group, SJ Alert committee, residents'
associations and a parent-teacher association.
