Happy New Year

Our New Year started with a Bang (yes, with a capital B) because we were honored to host a Lucky Draw at the New Year’s reception of the Dutch Embassy, DutchCham and ADB. We made almost S$ 2,000 so that was a really magnificent start of the year. But we did have some awesome prizes: […]
