One of the most delightful moments at this year’s Holiday Bazaar was when Sook Hee and Bappin’s* son Navin spent some time with Ed Rec participant, Mike Roth, who is 101 years old. Check out these 2 photos, they’re sure to make you smile! Descriptions are below.
Photo 1: A huge smile stretches across an elderly gentleman’s wrinkled face, as his cheek touches the smooth, pink cheek of a young baby who’s eyes are wide and lips are pursed. The elderly gentleman’s eyes are gleaming with an expression of pure joy.
Photo 2: A young baby with a smile on his face puts his hand into the mouth of an elderly gentleman with white hair. The gentleman is holding his mouth open, and his eyes are happy. Perhaps it was a smirk on little Navin’s face?
Mike’s jolly laughter when playing with Navin surely added to the wonderful spirit at the event.
