PAM has organized a Members Night 2010 held at CEO Lounge, Star City, Kota Kinabalu on Friday, 29th October 2010 started at 7.00pm and ended at 11.30pm.
The function was well attended with a nice mix of corporate and graduate architects. As the architects were streaming in, a powerpoint presentation of the recent PAM – IPDM visit to Shanghai Expo was shown.
The evening was started off with a speech by PAM Sabah Chairman, Ar Ho Ja Lit and emceed by Ar Rizal Ahmad Banjar. The mic was passed around so members could introduce themselves. There were food and drinks abound, with music and pool games enlivening the evening.
As everybody was enjoying the food, Ar Rizal took the mic and got some of the architects to join him for some oldies tunes accompanied by the in-house pianist. PAM Sabah theme song composer, Mr. Cheong Kok Ann, after satisfying his huge appetite took over the mic and piano and belted out evergreen songs to the delight of the members. It was a nice surprise to hear for the first time some of the senior architects like Ar David Kwan, Ar. Lam Choi Sing and Ar Lim Koi Hoe singing, and boy could they really sing!
Meanwhile, Ar Jebb Liew took the cue (put intended) to challenge everybody for pool game. There were 16 participants comprising of corporate and graduate architects, and of both genders. Ar Jebb Liew showed his prowess by beating Ar Victor Wong in the final and thus “sapu” all the pooled bet money.
All in all, it was great to see the members, mingled around exchanging views, updating each other and of course, telling latest gossips among others.
After rounds of healthy meal and drinks, sang to the top of their lungs and fellowship, the members left with Great Spirit and huge smiles with everybody looking forward for the next gathering.
