On 21 September 2011, Australian High Commissioner HE Mr Doug Chester hosted a dinner for AAS Management Committee (MC) Members at his residence. HE Mr Doug Chester is one of two Patrons of AAS. Dinner guests also included the Second Secretary (Political & Economic) Mr Tony Walter and Austrade’s Senior Education Manager ASEAN, Ms Janice Aw.
It was an opportunity for younger MC members to interact with AAS Patron in a warm and an informal setting over a scrumptious meal. Besides catching up with alumni news, guests enjoyed light conversations and interesting discussions on a variety of topics ranging from personal experiences during their studies in Australia to future plans, as well as current affairs.
I felt that there was never a dull moment; there was always something interesting that madeus go ‘ah!’ and I particularly enjoyed the 4-course dinner so painstakingly prepared by the Resident Chef. The dinner ended at 9.30pm but we stayedon for coffee and more chit-chat. We thanked our Patron for his kind hospitality and a pleasant evening before finally departing at 10 pm.
