The Singapore Club Cambodia (SCC) serves as a bridge to all Singaporeans living in the Kingdom to network and connect with one another. Its objective has always been to keep the community in the country intact.
SCC’s President Albert Tan believes in fostering relationships between Singaporean families residing here, thus, the club hosts major events throughout the year. These events allow the Singaporean families to stay in touch and meet one another, be it a familiar face or a new one who has just made the move to Cambodia.
Major events include Lunar Chinese New Year Event, Family Event, National Day Event, Mid-Autumn Festival Event and Christmas Event. These religious and cultural events help to maintain a similar feeling for those who are unable to return home for the holidays, offering a joyous celebration often met with a dinner hosted by the club which sees a big number of its members joining.
Phillip Bank, a member of Phillip Capital Singapore, had also hosted a Lunar New Year event to network with the Singapore community at the Singapore Club Cambodia event in February this year.
There are also plenty of other networking events hosted by the club.
The club hosted the SCC Family Day at the Prince Manor Resort. The event was joined by both members and associate members. Singapore ambassador’s H.E. Michael Tan also graced the event along with his officers and embassy staff.
Lots of fun indoor and outdoor games and prizes were prepared for both kids and adults to have fun with.
SCC is also not just all about fun; they have also hosted an array of informative programmes for members. The Kelvin Chia Partnership organised a seminar on the “Law and Doing Business in Cambodia” earlier this month to speak about investments and business laws in the Kingdom and how these regulations and jurisdiction have an effect on the business conducted within the country.
The seminar had discussed on a wide range of topics ranging from business establishments, cross-border structures, banking and employment. It serves as a precursor for those planning to start something new by addresses the opportunities, challenges and difficulties of establishing a business in the country.
SCC has also collaborated with the Cambodia Chamber of Commerce to host a business networking and sharing event. With guest speakers from Singapore invited, they touched on the subject matter of “How to Improve Workplace Productivity and Digitisation”.
The event also had other business owners in Cambodia attend for them to gain valuable network as well as to exchange insights and thoughts with one another.
The club’s Shiok Night sees a monthly gathering of members in different settings and agendas. For instance, the club had hosted a Shiok Night in association with Collin’s in early March. In April, members of the club gathered in Himawari when the club held their monthly Shiok Night in collaboration with AusCham Cambodia.
The upcoming Shiok Night will see the clubs collaborating with Himawari Brewery to host another night out for networking and socialising for its members to join. In the spirit of Christmas last year, SCC held its “Joy of Giving” Christmas party at Himawari Hotel Apartments in December.
Aside from the bountiful supply of food and fun, SCC showed through Christmas spirit through announcement of scholarship grants and donations of rice and school supplies.
During their 53rd National Day celebration, the club had hosted up to 50 booths which saw the likes of Singapore-linked companies operating in Cambodia from the airline, service, education, banking, food and beverage as well as committed members of other sectors. Attendees had the opportunity to explore more about these companies and sample the well-known Singaporean cuisine which can be found here in the capital as well. Furthermore attendees were treated to a broadcast of the 53rd Singapore National Day parade and a showcase to the launch of SCC’s “Shiok, Lah!” magazine.
In addition to the entertainment onstage, those attending the event were treated to Lucky Draw segments throughout the day where attractive prizes, including tickets for a round trip to Singapore were there for attendees to win. Kids were also treated a kids’ corner featuring a Singapore-themed face painting station, and a Bouncy Castle.
The height of the celebrations showcases the commitment of the club in providing a similar level of celebrations for those who are used to one back home.
All these events hosted by SCC prove their dedication in serving to continuously build relationships between Singaporeans in the Kingdom while being the bridge to learning more about Cambodia itself.
