Chieftain’s Chatter – June 2016

The summer break is upon us and this is a quiet time for the Society as we will not stage any events during July or August. But there is considerable work going on behind the scenes in regard to the planning for various activities.

We have two major events towards the latter part of the year. The first is the Great British Ball which will be held on Saturday 22nd November 2016 at the Shangri-La Hotel. The event promises to be something rather special as it is themed to Her Majesty, The Queen’s 90th birthday celebration. Tickets are now on sale and since this event involves five participating organisations, it is likely to be over-subscribed.

There is already considerable interest and to be sure of a table or indeed a ticket for the ball, please book and pay early to avoid disappointment. On that point it is worth noting that the Joint Organising Committee will not confirm table/ticket reservations unless payment is received. It is very much a “first come – first served” basis for table and ticket sales. You can make reservations on-line at:

Planning for the annual St. Andrew’s Ball is also underway. It will be at the Hilton Doubletree Hotel in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday 26th November 2016. Again this event has proved to be very popular over the years and tickets will go on sale during September 2016.

Lastly, but by no means least, I would like to pay tribute to some of our Committee Members who have recently left Malaysia or who have left due to work commitments.

Many thanks go to Kenny Ross, Lisa Alkhalil, Marina Cawley and Libby Mackay Menzie. They have served on the committee of the Society and during their time in KL have given their time, energy and skills to make many of our events and activities a success. On behalf of the whole Society I would like to thank them for their respective contributions and to wish them, and their families,
“ae fond fareweel”.

Yours Aye,
Ali King, Chieftain
