Endeavour Australia Cheung Kong Awards Scholars at the Governor House Adelaide

The Hong Kong Australian Business Association SA Chapter participated in a reception to celebrate the achievements of the Endeavour Australia Cheung Kong Awards Scholars at the Governor House Adelaide, on Thursday 14th August 2014. Around 150 people were invited. HKABA-SA Committee members Frank Bueti, Ivy Xu, Jenny Che, Jim Stylianopoulos, Andrew Faulkner, John McLachlan, Chris Vounasis, Tai Nguyen and Victor Moo were in attendance as was HKABA National VP Ian Mathison. 

His Excellency the Governor Rear Admiral the Honourable Kevin Scarce made an inspiring speech. Special guest from Hong Kong Mr H.L.Kam was invited to present the awards to all the winners. The reception was followed by a cocktail networking function, with finger food provided. All guests were allowed access to walk through the ground floor of the house.

It was a great experience and everyone felt honoured and content. The networking opportunity among quality people was also a highlight of the night.

HKABA SA Temptation Cruise Report

We sailed out on the Temptation Cruise on a balmy night on the 17th April 2014.

The seas was calm and there was little breeze to speak off. This year’s Temptation Cruise was held mid-week and provided a great opportunity for guests to network in beautiful surroundings. Those who attended had a great time. We were also fortunate enough to see a group of dolphins that followed us for a short while around the Holdfast Beach and Grange vicinity. Closer to the end of our cruise, we witnessed a spectacular view of the sunset along the Adelaide coastline. The Temptation Cruise is a pleasant way to spend the evening networking  with members and friends of HKABA SA Chapter.

We look forward to seeing you all again next year!.
