An Exciting Collaboration with YMCA Singapore and Sony Pictures: Hosting The Garfield Movie Premiere for a Great Cause

On May 18th, YMCA of Singapore joined forces with Sony Pictures to host the exclusive premiere of the eagerly awaited The Garfield Movie, with the support from Nunchi Marine. This special event went beyond entertainment, serving as a platform to support a noble cause—the YMCA Vocational and Soft Skills Programme (VaSSP).

We were particularly pleased to be part of this remarkable event by donating to the YMCA VaSSP. This initiative is close to our hearts as it plays a crucial role in empowering individuals by equipping them with essential skills needed for their personal and professional growth. The VaSSP focuses on providing vocational training and soft skills development, helping participants to enhance their employability and gain confidence in their abilities.

The atmosphere was electric as families, friends, and supporters of the YMCA gathered to watch the hilarious antics of everyone’s favorite lasagna-loving cat, Garfield. During the event, we were deeply honored to receive a token of appreciation from Mr. Kenneth Tan, Vice President of YMCA Singapore.

We hope that our contribution to the VaSSP can help make a positive impact on the lives of those involved in the programme. It is our firm belief that through education and skill development, individuals can unlock their full potential and create better futures for themselves.

Building Bonds and Impact: Exploring the Social Dimension of ESG at Our Company Retreat

Throwback to our company retreat to Taipei on 28 March – an incredible experience filled with memorable teambonding activities. Over the course of five days, we engaged in various activities including food-making competition, pulling out the biggest radish, and participating in the local aboriginal song and dance.

One of the highlights was the Amazing Race-like treasure hunt where we worked together to solve clues and discover hidden gems in the heart of the city. Each clue unravelled a new layer of excitement and pushed us to think creatively. We navigated through narrow alleys, bustling markets, and historical landmarks, all while immersing ourselves in the vibrant atmosphere of Taipei.

The experience not only allowed us to view Taipei through a different lens, but it also brought our team closer, as we celebrated our collective successes.

Celebrating World Water Day with Kayak Waterways Cleanup

In commemoration of World Water Day, our team embarked on a waterways cleanup along the Kallang Basin route last Friday. Despite being a small group, we managed to collect 40 kg worth of trash, contributing to the preservation of our waterways. Singapore’s history with water is fascinating, transforming from a water-deprived nation to a global leader in water management.

Two fun facts about Singapore’s water:
1.     Two-thirds of Singapore’s land surface is used for water catchment.
2.     Singapore has implemented the Four National Taps strategy. These taps represent different sources of water: local catchment water, imported water, reclaimed water (NEWater), and desalinated water. This diversified approach reduces the country’s reliance on any single source and ensures a stable water supply even during periods of drought or disruption. This innovative strategy has been pivotal in ensuring Singapore’s water resilience.

Empowering Youth Through Inclusive Initiatives: Our Support for YMCA of Singapore

At our recent event, we had the honor of presenting a donation to the YMCA of Singapore in support of its inspiring “Inclusivity through the Heart of Food” campaign. This contribution resonates deeply with our commitment to promoting equal opportunities and fostering positive societal change.

During the cheque presentation ceremony, we were honored to be joined by Mr. Tony Soh, President of YMCA, in conjunction with the formal welcome of President Tharman Shanmugaratnam as YMCA’s Patron in-chief, marking a commemorative occasion.

One of the primary reasons we chose to support YMCA is their dedication to programs like the Vocational and Soft Skills Programme (VaSSP). This initiative plays a crucial role in empowering youths from diverse backgrounds, equipping them with the skills and confidence needed to succeed in today’s world.

By investing in YMCA’s initiatives, we believe that we are contributing to the transformation of lives and the empowerment of youths to realize their full potential. We are proud to be part of such a meaningful cause and look forward to witnessing the positive impact it will continue to have on our community.  Together, we unite in advocating for inclusivity and strive towards a brighter future for all.

Nourishing Communities: Our Commitment to Advocate for an Inspiring & Affordable Hawker Delights Stall

Amid our fast-paced lives, it is truly heartwarming to come across individuals who go beyond the ordinary. One such inspiring person is Ms Hani Isnin-Racine. She has been serving affordably priced food at $2.50 from her Jalan Kukoh stall, despite rising costs. Her unwavering commitment to serving the lower-income community in her estate has surely warmed the hearts of those in need of a nourishing meal.

So moved and inspired by her selflessness, that we have pledged to support her by alleviating one of her major burdens – the cost of rental and utilities. By covering one year’s rental expenses, we hope to provide some relief and enable her to continue serving the community. It is our small way of expressing appreciation for her kindness.

If you happen to be in the area, do go and support Ms Hani if you can. Let us stand together as a community, reach out or contribute in any way you can.

PS. We are thrilled to learn that she has been nominated Singaporean of the Year 2023 Finalist by The Straits Times. Truly deserving.
