This has been quite a year for Chan Mo Lin, as she welcomed turning 70 with a grand affair at the Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur. The lively and high-spirited lady welcomed hundreds of friends and family during the cocktail reception at the ballroom foyer, before everyone moved to the lavish banquet setting within the ballroom. 

The emcee of the night, Dato' Yasmin Yusoff, invited the birthday girl to give her welcoming speech, who then delighted guests with her rendition of 'Can't Take My Eyes Off You', undoubtedly the highlight of the evening. 

In between dinner and band performances, many guests and friends were invited on stage to perform their own song dedications to Mo Lin, namely Jeff Toh, Christina Ong, Dr Andreas Teoh, Dato' Sufian Majid, Dato' Johari Abbas, Chan Ming Lye and Donne Ray Radford.

 Mo Lin cut her birthday cake with Dr Ann Chan and Puan Sri Mae Cheng, as they all shared the same birthday. Guests later took to the floor and danced the night away.
