It was an evening of food, fun, laughter and celebration as alumni gathered for the NUS Business School Alumni (BSA) Association Members’ Night on 19 May 2016. Held at LEVEL 2 Kitchen & Bar, the event marked the first anniversary of the NUSBSA Women’s Wing and the culmination of the outgoing alumni committee’s two-year term.
The joyous sounds of camaraderie filled the air as attendees caught up and chatted with each other over a sumptuous buffet spread. Monica Tung (MBA, 1994), who was attending the event for the first time, was thrilled to spot several familiar faces, many of whom she had not seen since her graduation. “I came with the intention of networking with other alumni and meeting old friends and I was not disappointed.” Fellow alumni and first-time attendee Tan Meng Cheng (MBA, 2000) shared similar sentiments, adding that she had a very enjoyable time.
Other than networking and mingling around, some of the alumni such as Sylvia Lim (BBA, 1993) were also present to show their support for the Women’s Wing. “I always wanted to attend an event by the Women’s Wing but never had the chance to. Tonight, I finally had the opportunity and I’m glad I came.”
But the highlight of the evening was the presentation by invited speaker Ms Sandy Blandin. Titled ‘The smell of memories’, the light-hearted, interactive talk saw participants having a scent-sational good time as they sniffed on perfumed blotters and learnt how to keep Alzheimer’s away using their sense of smell. Jay Khilani (BBA, 1988), a familiar face at Members’ Night events, found the topic extremely interesting and refreshing. “I really enjoy attending these events as I’m always keen to learn something new,” he said. “The best part is the topics are never repeated and often on subjects that I would never be able to experience otherwise.” His thoughts were echoed by Lek Lee Hiah (BAcc, 1984), who was intrigued by the night’s topic and had attended the event with her friends.
Too soon, the evening wound to a close with Ms Joey Gan, Chairlady of the Women’s Wing, delivering the closing address. Ending the event on a poignant note, the emcee thanked the outgoing alumni committee to thunderous applause.
Congratulations to the Women’s Wing on their first-year anniversary once again!
And thank you to the outgoing alumni committee for all your sacrifices, contributions and hard work in making every Members’ Night an unforgettable one!
