It was wonderful to see 226 Singaporeans, their families and friends gather together to usher in the lunar new year. The evening began auspiciously with an energetic lion dance which featured our very own Monkey King. This was followed by the ‘properity lohei yusheng’ where tables did their best to out do each other in tossing their salads as high as they could to enjoy good fortune and luck. Then everyone sat down to a sumptuous dinner catered by the Gold Leaf Chinese restaurant in Docklands. Guests were then treated to cultural and musical performances and the night ended with a lucky raffle draw with the top prize of a $1500 luxury men’s watch.

The club would also like to thank all the volunteers and committee members who worked hard to ensure everything went smoothly during the entire evening. That this was an ‘All Singaporean’ affair made everyone who attended extremely proud of the talents in our community.
