“I have no regrets. I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There’s nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up? My life.” – Mr Lee Kuan Yew, Hard Truths
We would like to invite you to a Memorial Service to honour Mr Lee Kuan Yew and his innumerable contributions to shaping Singapore to what she is today. During the Service, tributes and a minute of silence will be observed for the late former Premier. A condolence book will be available for you to pen your messages. The Memorial Service will be held on 14 April 2015 at 6:30pm. The Service will be held at Lecture Theatre 7, Hicks Building and formal attire (black and white) is mandatory. Being thousands of miles away from the island we are proud to call home, it was especially saddening to hear of Mr Lee’s passing. The Committee at Sheffield Singapore Society would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to the Lee Family.
UPDATED WITH PICTURES:
The Service started off with our Society’s President and Vice-President, Alexander and Sharmaine’s tribute to Mr Lee before a couple of our members took to the microphone to express their thoughts.
A minute of silence was then observed before the pledge was recited. After the service, a condolence book was at the front of the LT for Singsoc members to pen their condolences and well wishes to the Lee Family.
The condolence book will be handed over to the Singapore Embassy in London to be given to Mr Lee’s family.
Besides our AGM which will take place this Friday, 6th March, the CNY dinner was the very last event organised by the current committee.
Going with the theme of CNY, we had hotpot to fill our tummies. Not forgetting, the Yu Sheng which we were extremely sure everyone will definitely miss it. Therefore, we had the restaurant serve Yu Sheng for every table. P.s, it was a generous amount of Salmon! (:
In any case anyone felt bored during the dinner, we prepared a bingo game as well as a lucky draw!
Here’s presenting our Bingo and lucky Draw winners!
The usual protocol-
A big thank you to the 70 who came and made this event such a success! We hope you guys enjoyed as much as you did and thank you for supporting us the past year! (:
This year’s Christmas Dinner is back and we held it way before Christmas so that those who are going back during the break will be able to join us too! (YAY!)
For this festive season, we fed our tummies full at Crosspool Tavern where we had the choice of turkey, gammon, beef or chicken (some even tried all types!). We had lots of sides to choose from as well, ranging from chips, baked beans, mushy peas, cheesy cauliflower, stuffings, mash potatoes and more! Did I mention, they were free flow as well! What’s a good meal without desserts? We finished it off with our choice of desserts where we could choose from bottomless ice-cream, raspberry trifle sundae, apple and blackberry pie or banana split. Someone bring me back, I’m drooling already!
This year’s Christmas dinner was a little different. Since it was the season of joy and giving, we decided to include a mini gift exchange! For those who participated in the gift exchange, we had to get a gift with a minimum value of £3 and I’m pretty sure some walked away loving their exchanged gifts, while some got really cool and quirky stuff!
We played some lovely festive games as well and the winners walked away with additional gifts from us (:
Thank you to those who came down. You guys are the best, making every event such a memorable and lovely one, as always! (:
