Dr Ong Chit Chung Memorial Exhibition is a month’s long exhibition, officially opened on 14 July 2018 in memory of the late Dr Ong Chit Chung. This exhibition is held at the Bukit Batok Community Club Hall and was officiated by MP for Bukit Batok SMC Mr Murali Pillai and Special Advisor to Chairman of People’s Association Board Mr Lim Boon Heng. MP Mr Chai Chong Yii, Dr S. Vasoo, who was the late Dr. Ong’s parliamentary colleague was also present during the launch.
Dr. Ong was a well-known Member of Parliament of the Jurong GRC (Group Representation Constituency) and NUS Alumnus (1972), who studied and taught at the Department of History. He had cared for and contributed much to the cause of education.
Dr Ong was described by those who know him as an MPwho was always on the ground. His tenure in Bukit Batok town has seen the development of a bus interchange, swimming pool, polyclinic and West Mall Shopping Centre.
Dr. Ong was also known to spearhead fundraising efforts to build the Bukit Batok Community Club on two separate occassion.His compassion also led him to launch support schemes to help the underprivileged. The Share-A-Meal program is one such example that he pioneered and has since evolved to the present day Food and Groceries voucher schemes. Dr. Ong has also helped build a social safety network in Bukit Batok through setting up of voluntary welfare organizations.
As part of HDB’s effort to welcome residents into their new home, a welcome party was organized for the newly moved in residents. It was a day of music, games and food and friendships were forged as neighbours took part in the various activities.
As there were many young kids in the neighbourhood, Emcee Jim Koh also played many of their favourite games and every kid who took part in the game were given a present!
The event was also graced by grassroots adviser, Mr Heng Chee How.
The annual Chinese New Year Lo-Hei was held at Orchard Hotel. This year, many guests came dressed in this best Chinese New Year outfit and the festive mood was evident.
As there is a Chinese say that goes: It’s better to give than to receive, this short luncheon has a total of 3 lucky draw segments. Emcee Jim Koh was also present to hype the crowd and to play games with the guests! It was an afternoon of fun seeing guests bonding with one another.
The organizers also invited an esteemed fortune teller master to predict the fortune for the various zodiac signs for the guests!
This is a small gathering as the staff of CAFHI has to be on standby 24/7. However, the staff who were able to make it for the dinner and dance forged ahead and made the night memorable!
This year’s theme is Sports Day. Emcee Jim Koh was dressed in an eye catching sumo wrestle costume. Also, the guests took part in many sports related games! It was indeed a night of fun filled laughter!
This is a 700 strong crowd with a mixture of locals and expat guests. The night started strong with an opening number by two dancers dressed to Madonna and Lady Gaga.
This was followed by a fashion parade by the organizing committee before Emcee Jim Koh took the stage to welcome the guests. This event would not have been so perfect without the guest’s effort to dress up!
