The Guest-of-Honour was Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed. When he was invited to give a 'speech', he said jokingly 'still want speech, so late'. Then he greeted the audience with "Da Jia Hao" in Cantonese and received a warm applause. People always find it endearing when a non-Chinese VIP or celebrity greets a Chinese audience in a Chinese dialect.

He was late and apologized. He explained that he had to attend the reception for Obama at the APEC meeting. Then he said a few words to encourage the troupe. It took just about 2 minutes. It was considerate of him.
After that he gave out some souvenirs.
