SHC LOHEI AT ALOHA LOYANG
On behalf of the STAMP team, thank you, Lohei participants for coming to support and joining us at the fun at Aloha Loyang just last Saturday. And it was a good opportunity for SHC members to meet there for a Reunion and to celebrate the festivity of Chinese New Year. Thanks also for your compliments and good feedback which you gave through our watsapp groupchat.
First of all, I must say how proud I am to have a wonderful cohesive STAMP team – Susan, Teresa, Ann, May and Peri. Yes, SHC got Talent and I want to highlight the talent from each of my team members that left everybody with a nice surprise:
Peri – for her special preparation of the Lohei dish and for sponsoring the generous add-ons of abalone and pacific clam. What a surprise she gave everybody with this delicious dish, topped with pomelo and jelly fish, which was happily tucked in after the mega toss that left little room in the stomach for dinner!
Teresa – for her signature muah chee, the highlight of the Tea spread. And if you take a look at the photos of her artistic creation of the dog, this is as good as the dog design done professionally by caterers in the preparation of the yusheng tray crafted from the julienned vegetables.
Ann – for ordering the caishenye outfit – what’s a lohei party without the Caishenye to make it complete? Ann is the one who took care of the “traditions” in line with the CNY theme – angbaos, the gold coins and what great lengths she did with some members in the team to do a lot of legwork to source for all the things. Let’s hope somebody will win a Toto prize this coming Friday!
May Woo – besides helping with the securing of the Aloha Loyang bungalow she took sole charge of the order for the afternoon tea, coffee, drinks, cakes and all.
Together we have good teamwork and supported each other to complete each individual task. And hiccups will surely happen but it was quickly solved with quick thinking on our feet and that’s how we are always doing things cheerfully and supporting each other when challenges come in the way.
Special mention also to Sam for his great sport to don the caishenye outfit – Sam has always been a good sport to do anything good for everybody.
And now meet the offshoot born from our working group, BELLE – Bessie, Esther, Lillian, Lina and Evon, the support team working quietly behind the scenes. The party would not be able to take off so successfully without your help, thank you, BELLE.
Not to forget also to thank our generous sponsors for the prizes and tableful of door gifts:
Ronald, Thomas, Bessie and May
I hope that it was fun the way the door gifts were handed out.
To the line dance leaders, Yatsing and Lily, thank you for being part of the line dance group as seasoned line dancers. Hope that our line dancers have got their share of the fun in this segment of the programme, though it could not be finished due to lack of time.
And of course, to the photographers who sent the photos and videos, Richard Wong and the many others, thank you for sacrificing your time away from your enjoyment and food to take those nice photos and videos and sharing with us.
Last but not least, kindly excuse me if there is any inadvertent omission of names of people helping out at the event. It was very gratifying to see everyone approaching us to ask what can they do to start up the event as quickly as possible. This is very typical of the wonderful spirit of SHC members at events like this.
Now, let’s enjoy the photos of the whole event.
