Date: 22 May 2014 (Thursday)
Venue: Actors the Jam Bar, *SCAPE Mall
Organiser: NUS Business School Alumni Association
It was a heady night of music, fun and laughter as members gathered for the NUS Business School Alumni (BSA) Association Members’ Night on 22 May 2014, and the last one Simon Phua (BBA Hons 1976) would be attending as the association’s president.
Held at the Actors the Jam Bar, *SCAPE Mall, the event was a chance for alumni members to not only network and build connections, but ultimately unwind and have a good time among familiar faces and music. The bar is especially designed to hold jamming sessions, with electric and bass guitars, drums and even a resident keyboard player supplied. This allowed our musically inclined alumni to pick up their instrument of choice and jam the night away to a world of songs, with all lyrics provided onscreen.
The night revealed some talented alumni, with Lee Jun Xian (BBA 2008) on guitar and Lee Ming Hui (BBA 2008) on drums while other alumni showed off their dancing chops with a smooth rendition of the Cha Cha at one point. Many joined in the fun, letting their hair down as they sang and danced to favourite tunes. Others preferred the quiet ambience of the night as they took to the tables outdoors. Even an engineering alumni member joined in the festivities, fostering new relationships with business graduates.
The evening culminated in a karaoke competition with prizes sponsored by CapitaLand up for grabs. After much deliberation from the judging panel, duet partners Angela Sim (BBA 1998) and Yong Ching Lian (BAcc 1987) walked away with the first prize with Yeo Keng Joon (MBA 1985) and the duet team of Kelly from GANO and Julianti Ng (BBA 2011) receiving the second and third prizes respectively.
