Yet another year has come to an end. I hope you and your loved ones have had a fun and memorable time with your year-end celebrations and festivities.
I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you at our recent demonstrations and am pleased to announce that our most recent Christmas Workshop was a sold-out event! I am excited that the philosophy of Ikebana has continued to inspire you, your mood and the ambiance of your living spaces these past months. May the appreciation of ikebana continue to inspire everyone in new ways every day in 2018!
It was delightful to see many of you with us at our Christmas Lunch, an event dedicated to the Chapter Past Presidents who are ever supportive, and devoted to their duties during their tenure.
At the moment, the committee is busy working on the activities for the approaching Chinese New Year, to welcome the Year of the Earth Dog 2018.
We have two upcoming events to share with you, Riji Toshiko Saito from Sogetsu School will be flying in from Fukuoka to join us as our demonstrator on 31 Jan at the “Ikebana Spring” Lunch and as facilitator on 1 Feb for the Ikebana Valentine Workshop.
So don’t miss this opportunity for more festive good time. Seats are limited so wait no more! RSVP today to avoid disappointment!
In April, we have our much-anticipated Asian Regional Conference in Hong Kong. I will be attending this conference along with a few committee and our Chapter members. If you are unable to attend, do make sure to follow our Facebook page as we will upload some updates for you after the event.
Singapore being a busy city, it is quite normal that most of us are filled with activities for work and family in our everyday life. Let us commit to filling in the next 365 pages of our lives with laughter, peace, love and happiness!
May the Year of the Earth Dog 2018 bring you good health and lasting prosperity! Here’s also wishing all those who will be celebrating Easter a very Happy, Extraordinary and Joyful Easter!
In Friendship through flowers
