DEAR FELLOW MEMBERS,
Gong hei fat choy, Happy Lunar New Year! For those following the Chinese zodiac calendar, you may already be aware that 2019 is the year of the Pig, which is associated with good fortune, wealth, honesty, general prosperity, and hard work. Individuals born in the year of the Pig are said to be happy, easygoing, honest, educated, sincere, and brave. With these auspicious signs at hand, I wish prosperity and good health to you and your family and friends in the year ahead.
I recently had the privilege to be invited to our annual staff party. I thoroughly enjoyed that evening and valued the opportunity to interact with all the staff there. The theme of the evening was Oscar Night, and everyone dressed accordingly. I was very impressed by the gaiety and energy of the evening. Naturally I took the opportunity, on behalf of all members, to thank our staff for their dedication and hard work that turned our everyday club visits and special occasions into great experiences. Chef de Partie Alveen Prasad, a member of our Culinary team, was voted the Terminal City Club 2018 Employee of the Year. Congratulations to Alveen, as well as those who were nominated. Each and every individual nominated is worthy of distinction. I found it incredible to learn that our ten longest serving employees have more than 318 combined years of service!
Over the past month I have been travelling. I was lucky to visit a few of our reciprocal clubs in Asia. Before your next trip, stop by the Member Services desk (or text the team at 604 200 2279) for a letter of introduction to one of our 300+ reciprocal clubs worldwide. Whether it’s accommodation for yourself, or a distinctive location to host a meeting, lunch, or dinner, your membership has benefits.
The Board of Directors recognizes that we must balance a wish to stay current with trends of dress and our responsibility to adhere to our House Rules, which exist to provide a consistent environment and to respect the comfort of all our members. As fashion is always evolving, please remember that denim with rips or tears, hoodies, and clothing with slogans or commercial messages are not permitted in the Club’s private restaurants. Our staff have been asked to remind members of the dress code as needed, and to ensure that both members and their guests conform to these rules.
To the 88 members who are taking on Terminal City Club’s annual 45-Day Fitness Challenge, well done! If you need a change from your regular routine to help you keep momentum, please check out the new fitness class schedule on page 14. With so many first-timers taking on the challenge of 45 workouts in January and February, I commend you on this positive and habit-forming initiative. I hope you stick with it for 2019 and beyond!
There is never a shortage of interesting things to do here at the Club. Don’t miss the Valentine’s Pop-Up Dinner in 1892 on February 14, and of course, the memory-making annual Father/Daughter Gala is scheduled this year for February 16. Finally, please remember that it’s always the perfect season to share your Terminal City Club member experience with your colleagues and clients. Book a Club meeting space for a refreshing change of scene, and let our culinary team inspire your group’s creativity. Our catering team is always available to work with you to ensure that your event reflects your unique style.
As always, I look forward to seeing you around the Club in the weeks ahead.
Dr. Ignatius Cheung
Terminal City Club President
