To all our Chinese readers and everyone else enjoying Chinese New Year, best wishes for the Year of the Monkey! May you prosper in the important things of life, and enjoy much happiness, good health, and fruitfulness in your many endeavours.

Allow me to refer you to a link to a Chinese New Year video production by Petronas, Malaysia’s fully integrated oil and gas multinational ranked among the largest corporations in the Fortune Global 500 listing of the world’s largest corporations:

This video explores what makes a blessed life. Anyone not moved after watching the video would have missed a special blessing for this festive season – it is a timely reminder to honour the sacrifices others have made for us, and count the blessings in our lives.

As the tagline accompanying the video goes: “Count the blessings we have, rather than the fortunes we don’t”.

We would like to inform all who are interested in Honour (Singapore) that two new directors have joined our Board: Mrs Fang Ai Lian and Ambassador Mohamad Alami Musa.

Mrs Fang is a well-known business personality, and is active on the boards of many companies and non-profits. She was previously Chairman of Ernst & Young Singapore.

Ambassador Alami is another well-known personality: he is Singapore’s Ambassador to Algeria, the Head of Studies in Inter-Religious Relations in Plural Societies at the S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University, and the President of Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS), the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore.

Honour (Singapore) is very pleased to welcome Mrs Fang and Ambassador Alami to its board, and at the same time announces the resignation of Mr Khoo Oon Theam, Mr Georgie Lee and Mr Jason Wong, all of whom were instrumental in getting Honour (Singapore) on its feet since its founding two years ago. We thank Mr Khoo, Mr Lee, and Mr Wong very much for their past counsel and contributions.

Have a wonderful Chinese New Year!
