Dance of May

This book by the late Dato Sri (Dr) Lau Hui Kang, Recalling the Past at Parkview, was launched this morning at Civic Centre. Some 1000 guests attended the Memorial Service held in honour of my late uncle exactly 60 days after he passed on.

The book was completed in September 2005. But, the late Dato Sri (Dr) Lau was then too sick to launch the book.

I have read the book earlier before its launching today. Parkview was the place where the author stayed in the later years of his life. At Parkview, the author looked back at his life and shared his life journey with his family members, relatives, friends and the society at large. It was written while he was fighting the cancer cells in his body. In the words of his friend, also the author of the first book about him, Lau Hui Kang KTS,

At first, I received his script in handwriting, clear and strong stokes, later, the handwriting showed weaker strokes, and towards the end, Dato Sri (Dr) Lau sent him recorded voices. He was too weak to write anymore.

The author shared his journey in the hope that many would be encouraged and his journey could be used as a reference. If I am allow to add in, it’s Labour of Love.

The Second Finance Minister and Miniser of Urban Development and Tourism Dato Sri Wong Soon Koh described the journey that the author took was a journey of peace, love, clear conscience, beauty and giving spirit.

The author dedicated a section each of the book in honour of his parents, wife, children, teachers and friends. The book also relates how he was involved in the social services, his unflagging support for independent Chinese school which he credits with shaping his attitude. A section of it was his battle with cancer and his faith in God.

The author was born on 5th of May which inspired his grandchildren to present scenes of his colourful and meaningful life in a video clip entitled “Dance of May”. The video clip started with a complete silence with words on screen, "Lovingly, a husband, father, grandfather, greatgrandfather .....

At the launch of the book, the song You Raise Me Up was played.

Yes, for many, Dato Sri (Dr) Lau had certainly raised them up –

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up; To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up; to More than I can be.

There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up; To more than I can be.
