Total Defence Symposium 2013

Just a quick post here before I continue on with my work. I have been busy lately but rest assured that I will be back soon with more pictures of food. And I appeared in the news,on CNA! They did not mention me specifically but they took a photo of me talking to the minister anyway.

"SINGAPORE: Ten employers and civil resource owners were recognised on Friday for their contributions to Singapore's Total Defence. The individuals and organisations received awards for exemplary support to National Service.

This was part of this year's Total Defence Symposium, where a dialogue between employers and Senior Minister of State for Defence Chan Chun Sing was also held.

The dialogue focused on how stakeholders can best come together to support National Service.

Mr Chan thanked businesses and acknowledged the challenges they faced in supporting defence efforts.

He said: "Many other countries have tried it and many countries also found that it's not easy. For Singapore today, especially in a time of peace and prosperity, all the more it's difficult to convince people that we need to maintain an operationally-ready force." "- CNA/ac

I was being called up last minute to attend the Total Defence Symposium 2013 at Ritz Carlton. I felt so nervous after knowing my responsibility of tending my booth and being told that I will be speaking to the minister! Sheesh,and here I am in the photo. Haha. I just wanna say that I did not manage to tie my bun properly and it is really,a less flattering side profile that was being taken. Regardless,I am thankful for the opportunity to speak with the minister. The school had given me plenty of opportunities and I look forward to more of such sessions, one more coming up next month! In fact,I will be rather busy for the next two months.

I love my dress! I seldom wear it out but it's very lovely. It was a gift from L as a Christmas present and one of the dresses that I really like. Anyways,my school had organized a trip to Munich and I will be going next month end. The only issue right now is to wait for approval so that we can make payment and I should like to go a day or two earlier,I have made up my mind to rent a car and drive on the famous no-limits highway -- Autobahn!

Till then.
