Time flies. Its been half a year since the appointment of the current EXCO. The EXCO tirelessly works to make sure the association runs smooth and will continuously review for improvements. As you might already be aware all EXCO are volunteers helping the association on a part-time basis. I always find volunteers to be such a passionate bunch and thank them for their help.
You must be wondering about the title "Missing home...".
After the National Day celebrations, I just stumbled onto a recent copy of the Singapore Tourism Promotion Board (STPB) quarterly magazine, so I casually flipped the magazine. I then realized that I missed home, seeing those images of Singapore, and also realized there were some many new places I myself have not been. Maybe STPB should treat some of us as their target market. :)
On volunteering, the association is planning to increase activities helping the less fortunate in Hong Kong. We hope that volunteering becomes a bigger part for our members, and to take time to help those needy.
I have met both current and new members, and hope to meet more members. Do join us at the coming events, and bring your friends.
Enjoy the warm weather whilst it lasts.

Our Founding Members
Welcome to The Singapore Association Hong Kong
The Singapore Association Hong Kong (SAHK) dates back to 1974 and was formed by a group of forward-looking Singaporeans who worked and resided in Hong Kong. With the support and blessings from the Singapore Commissioner, the Association was officially set up. By 1976, The Singapore Association held its first annual Dinner & Dance. Forty years and something later, the Association continues its work. The Singapore Association Hong Kong (SAHK) would not have come this far without its dedicated members. The EXCO is also very fortunate to have a panel of experienced and knowledgeable Advisors to help steer the Association ahead.
Serving the global citizens in Hong Kong
SAHK’s mandate is to help Singaporeans in Hong Kong, to promote and celebrate Singaporean culture amongst the international communities in Hong Kong and also to contribute to the local community through social events and charitable activities.
