It was a joyous occasion as old friends gathered to celebrate Tan Sri Jeyaratnam’s 90th birthday. Tan Sri was in a jocular mood as he cut his birthday cake surrounded by old friends, daughter Jeyamalar and son Jeyarajah.
Dato’ Yap Lim Sen who hosted the party in his magnificent home, and who has known Tan Sri Jeya for more than 60 years, in his speech, gave guests an insight into Tan Sri’s almost legendary achievements in his illustrious career. As the longest serving Chairman of the Perak Turf Club, Tan Sri has broken a world record of sorts when he took over the helm in 1983. Dato’ Yap lauded him for his indefatigable energy on all his charitable causes and shared instances of his brilliance as a lawyer during the period when he was practising.
Guests sang and danced the night away and a good time was had by all.
