On February 20, 2019, the Singapore chapter celebrated the Chinese New Year at Madame Fan in the J.W. Marriott hotel.
On May 12, the Singapore chapter celebrated the 90th anniversary of CHS at the Coriander Leaf Grill & Screening Room where 20 alumni and their families enjoyed an Asian-fusion lunch buffet in a traditional picturesque Singapore shop house on Ang Siang Road, a quiet enclave of shops and restaurants within walking distance from the city’s bustling CBD. Following lunch, alumni enjoyed a game of trivia, consisting of questions related to CHS, Singapore and the hotel industry followed by a lucky draw for the grand prize – a three-night stay at the newly opened Fairmont Sirru Fen Fushi in the Maldives.
The annual HICAP Update conference in Singapore always presents a great opportunity to connect with fellow Hotelies from near and far. This year was no exception as a number of regional alumns were in Singapore for the three-day long event. Leveraging JW Marriott South Beach’s close proximity to the HICAP’s venue, the CHS Singapore family gathered for a casual reception at the Court Martial Bar, which also served as a launching point for property tours throughout the night. With approximately 35-40 members in attendance, the event proved to be another roaring success for the Singapore chapter and we already look forward to next year’s reception.
