On 8 February 2014, NUS Economics Alumni ushered in the Year of the Horse with its annual Chinese New Year lunch held at Beng Hiang restaurant. It was certainly a rousing reunion with four tables full of Economics undergraduates as well as Economics, Business and Engineering alumni tossing Yu Sheng into the air while catching up with one another.
Mr Daniel Lo, President of the Economics alumni took the opportunity to express his gratitude for the support given to the Economics Alumni over the year. He presented tokens of appreciation to the committee members of the Economics alumni and undergraduate society as well as a hamper to the Office of Alumni Relations. The winners of the Economics department tennis tournament also received the challenge trophy from Daniel at the lunch.
It was an afternoon which passed all too quickly with the sumptuous 9-course lunch and great conversations. Many did not even realise they had been in the restaurant for more than three hours when they left and were already looking forward to the next reunion lunch!
