ST Telemedia brings lunar new year cheers to St John''s Home  
On 16 January, about 80 residents at the St John''s Home for the Elderly were treated to an early Lunar New Year celebration with luncheon and entertainment by ST Telemedia staff. The fun-filled afternoon, including sing-along session certainly lifted the spirits of the residents with a number of them even joining in the singing and dancing. For many of them, the songs brought back fond memories of their younger days.
