Dear Richard,

    Wonderful! Thank you for sharing. Please pass on warm regards to Kelvin (YT), Inn Bok, and Johnson Tan. If I've met the others, please do so to them as well (I don't remember them, but do remember Johnson Tan from a previous convention (HK in 2014? Chicago in 2015?), and of course I consider YT and Inn Bok 'old friends' by now.
Best,
Joey

Dear Richard,

     Yes, you are right! I don't know why I have the reputation for a great memory; yours is much better than mine.
Please pass my regards on to JK Foo, as well.

   I hope to visit Singapore in 2018, a few weeks before Chinese New Year, and will aim to be able to attend a meeting, G-D Willing.  I also owe YT another visit, and want to see all of you there, including Pin and his family of course, and also Dr. Kai Sang Wong. He was also very hospitable (as you ALL were!) when I visited in Singapore in 2014 after meeting him at the Hong Kong convention that year.
Best,
Joey

Hi all

Apart from our regular monthly gathering on 1 Oct this month, the group members were also invited for a special treat on 15 Oct, a trip to Kelvin's Eco Resort at Sentosa!

We were treated to a delicious lunch whereby we savour the famous freshwater Sultan Fish. These were reared in Kelvin's resort and caught live for the meal. This fish was a delicacy and previously was only offer to the royal families in Malaysia, and hence it's named the Sultan Fish!

After dessert and coffee, we were taken a guided tour by Kelvin to explore the resort. We visited the farm where the Sultan Fish and other fishes were reared followed by a visit to the garden whereby Kelvin cultivated his earthworm compost.

After which is bottle viewing time!

We have a fruitful session in exchanging experience and viewing each other's bottles before we call it a day!

It was a wonderful session and the group would like to thank Kelvin for making this event possible!

Here are some of the photos taken at the event:

1. 7 members were present at the event, namely: Dominic, Daniel, Dr Lam, JK Foo, me, Kelvin and Inn Bok (from left to right)
2. Dr Lam with the Sultan Fish
3. Dominic and Daniel enjoying the lunch

Enjoy!

Dear Richard and Inn Bok,

I'm really envious! As if the fish and the cake weren't enough, there were bottles to handle as well.

Thanks for sharing.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh  !

Wish  I was  there  too ! Sultan  fish.....  Mmmmmmmmmmmmm

My wife  and I  once  stayed  at Kevin's  Eco  resort  hotel for a  few nights  -  wonderful  swimming  pool !

But beware  of the   home-grown  chillies in  the  roof  garden  (ask  Kevin about  it  !)

Will  anyone  from S'Pore   be  at the  ICSBS  London  convention ?

I will be  in London at that  time with my wife from  1 - 8  Nov ,  sharing  an  airbnb  apartment  with  Jill  and  Li Hui.  But  we  will not  attend the  convention

My UK  mobile  number  is   0 - 740- 431- 2121  if anyone  wants  to  contact  me  for a  lunch  or  dinner  when there  is a  free  slot  in the  Convention  program

Cheers

Peter

Hi Peter

Nice to hear from you and thanks for your kind invitation.

Unfortunately, I will not be attending the London Convention this year due to some family matters.

As far as I know, Mr JK Foo and Mr Johnson Tan will be attending but I was told that they will be there for only the first 2 days.

Regards.
