STC Special Countdown Event STC 跨年特別活動

It's been our privilege to have thousands of friends and family from the community come and join us on the day of counting down to 2013.  We have had some great memories, and now we would like to share them with you.

STC 很高興在2012年的最後一天,與近千位社區的朋友們度過了歡樂的一天,迎接嶄新的2013年的到來。下面請與我們一同回顧發大財、抽大獎、充滿活力與希望的2012最後一天。



儘管是首次舉辦麻將大賽,我們仍然驚喜地看到許多的麻將愛好者踴躍參加。當天一早大排長龍,大家辛苦了!
