Why come?

Come join hundreds of fellow Singaporeans in Silicon Valley at the inaugural Singapore SAF Day 2017! It’s your chance to come out with your family and friends and bond with other Singaporeans over some fun, food and friendly rivalry. This family-friendly event promises something for everyone young and old, from team games and relays for the little ones, team ‘telematches’, to soccer, captain’s ball and ultimate frisbee for our college students and adults.

What's special?

As this year marks NS50 (50 years of National Service in Singapore), we’re also giving you and your children a chance to set an IPPT record in sit-ups and push-ups, with prizes awaiting the fittest among us.

Also come cheer on your favourite team as the Singapore Students Associations of Stanford and UC Berkeley face-off in a Captain’s Ball finale challenge. 

There’ll be goodie bags for everyone, thanks to the kind sponsorship of Khong Guan, Yeo’s, The Golden Duck Co. and the Overseas Singaporean Unit.

There are also attractive prizes to be won for sporting excellence and in the Raffle draw! We’re delighted to acknowledge the corporate support of United Airlines, Orchard Hotel, Razer, All-Outdoors California Whitewater Rafting, OOWA by DynaOptics, KopiTiam Café, Shiok, Crystal Jade and Aina.

SG Cares

Why your registration isn’t “just for fun” but for a more meaningful purpose?

The Singapore SAF Day is not just a day for “fun”, but our way to be part of Singapore Cares (SG Cares) - a national movement to build a more caring and inclusive society. Your donations will be channeled 100% (excluding the service fees which we have kept to the minimum) to the Community Chest of Singapore. The Community Chest of Singapore was established in 1983 with a vital mission of raising funds to support about 80 social service organisations in Singapore. Be pleased that 100% of your event registration fee (excluding the token service fee) will go towards helping the following groups in Singapore: 

  • Adults with disabilities to integrate into society
  • Children with special needs and youth-at-risk to reach their full potential
  • Families in difficulty to stay resilient
  • Persons with mental health issues to integrate into society
  • Seniors in need to age gracefully in the community

Why pay?

Your registration fee is in fact the amount that you will be donating to charity. The suggested minimum registration/donation amount is $10 for adults and college students, but you are encouraged to donate more ($20, $50 and $99) where you feel adequate and moved to do so with. There’s also a bonus to donating more because you have a higher chance of winning attractive prizes in the Raffle draw! The registration/donation amount is $5 for children and students from 6 to 18 years old. There is no charge for children five and below.

Let's Play and Share!

So let’s come together as the larger Singaporean family here in Northern California to show that overseas Singaporeans care for our fellow Singaporeans in need back home.

SIF Connects! Event on 9/27/17

Dear Members,

Saw this email from SIF regarding a special event they are holding in Washington DC. Singaporean cuisine will be served!

You’re invited

SIF Connects! Washington DC 2017


7 September 2017


Dear Friends,

We have the pleasure of inviting you, your friends and colleagues to SIF Connects! Washington DC on Wednesday, 27 September 2017, from 4.30pm on Capitol Hill. SIF Connects! is our way of keeping in touch, and where we bring together Singaporeans and Friends of Singapore (FOS) in the United States to meet, rekindle ties and deepen friendships.

For the second year in a row, the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) and the US-Asia Institute are jointly organising a panel discussion to build cultural understanding and nurture stronger friendships between Singapore and global communities. This year’s dialogue is dedicated to the special occasions of ASEAN’s 50th anniversary as well as 40 years of US-ASEAN relations. This dialogue moves away from the hard policy and economic perspectives that frequently dominate discourse on ASEAN, and hopes to take a look at the softer but no less important aspects of people relations between the United States and ASEAN. Themed “Strengthening meaningful connections between the US and ASEAN”, the dialogue will delve into what our communities can initiate at the people-to-people level to uplift communities and bring peoples closer.

Key questions that will be asked of the panel include:

•             How should ASEAN’s strategy evolve to build capacity at the people/community level?
•             What kind of initiatives can deepen integration and cultivate shared values among US and ASEANcommunities?

Current panellists include SIF Chairman Ambassador Ong Keng Yong, a representative from the US-Asia Institute (TBC), former United States Ambassador to Singapore David Adelman and Singapore Institute of International Affairs Chairman Associate Professor Simon Tay.

We warmly invite you to join us in conversation at SIF Connects! Washington DC on 27 September, as Singaporean and American panellists exchange insights and share ideas on how we may build more inclusive and resilient societies, for a better world.

Survey of Overseas Singaporeans from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy

E-mail sent by Singapore, Wednesday, June 14th, 2017 @ 4:42pm

Dear Singaporean Members,

Please find attached an invitation from the Institute of Policy Studies at NUS to participate in their study on overseas Singaporeans.

____________

 
Take part in the IPS Social Lab’s Survey on Overseas Singaporeans!

For every 15 Singaporeans in Singapore, one more citizen lives abroad. The IPS Social Lab, a survey research unit at the National University of Singapore, wants to understand the motivations and experiences of Overseas Singaporeans. We are currently conducting an online survey till 30 September 2017.

If you are a Singapore citizen aged between 18 and 64 (both ages inclusive), have been living overseas for at least six months as of 12 May 2017, and are not currently a government employee or on a government scholarship, please sign up to take part in the survey here:

https://mysurvey.nus.edu.sg/EFM/se/543BE5C245666F9C

Once we receive your details, we will send you a unique weblink to complete the survey questionnaire, which should take you no more than 30 minutes. Upon successful completion of the questionnaire, we will send you a specially-designed EZ-link card with $10 stored value (more details here http://lkyspp.nus.edu.sg/ips/uncategorized/state-of-the-overseas-singaporeans-study) as a token of our appreciation.

This project is supported by the Overseas Singaporean Unit, a division of the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. Your responses are important as survey findings will provide policymakers with relevant and useful insights about our growing Singaporean diaspora. We intend to share the main conclusions of our findings publicly as well and hope that this will contribute to discourse on how Singapore can better support our overseas Singaporeans and maintain our links with them even while they’re away. Read more about our survey in a Straits Times article from 16/5/17: http://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/study-to-find-out-mindsets-of-overseas-singaporeans

Know other overseas Singaporeans? Please do forward this e-mail to them.

Thank you very much for your time!

Warm regards,
LEONG Chan-Hoong (Dr.)

Invitation by the OSU to Sunday Tea for Singaporean business owners/entrepreneurs (23 Apr 2017)

We have a rich, vibrant and growing pool of Singaporean business owners here in the San Francisco Bay Area. It goes without saying that Silicon Valley births many tech start-ups, but you’d be surprised that we also have Singaporeans among us who aren’t in the pure tech space. Some own cafes/restaurants or businesses centred on food, some work professionally with lenses (both in front of and behind), a couple run legal practices, one owns and operates a commercial farm, some are more artistic and others altruistic. And there are many more businesses owned by Singaporeans here that we don’t know about!

Time to bring Singaporean business owners and entrepreneurs together for tea! There is incredible value in Singaporeans businessowners/entrepreneurs from across industries/sectors coming together to discuss the potential and capacities such a collective might bring to not just yourselves and your businesses, but the Singaporean community here, as well as fellow Singaporeans with aspirations of setting up business here in Silicon Valley.

The afternoon tea event organised by the Overseas Singaporean Unit (OSU) will be held at Singaporean-operated café, Drip Line Coffee. The menu is designed by Singaporean chef Nora Haron and will feature Singaporean flavours with Californian produce. 

This event is strictly for Singaporean business owners/entrepreneurs in the SF Bay Area. If you’re a Singaporean business owners, don’t miss this get-together and RSVP early to avoid disappointment.

Date: 23 April 2017 (Sun)
Time: 3pm – 5pm (registration starts @ 2.45pm)
Venue: Drip Line Coffee (1940 Union Street, #21, Oakland, CA 94607)

2017 Lunar New Year Banquet Update

E-mail sent by Singapore, Saturday, January 14th, 2017 @ 1:03pm

Hi,

The SingaporeConnect 2017 Lunar New Year Banquet is off to a good start. With just slightly less than a month to go, we have over 120 registered to go!



There are only 78 seats left, which we would love to fill, so please if you haven't, do consider joining your friends or family, or come and make new ones! The registration page is: http://sgccny2017.eventbrite.com

We are using the Group feature in Eventbrite which lets you specify which group (aka table) you'll like to be in, so you can automatically group yourself with friends, family, or colleagues. This feature is very helpful for us too, and we encourage you to use Eventbrite's interface to add this instead of emailing us directly, especially since we actually can't add you to a group! (yes, Eventbrite support told us we can't, you have to do it).

What we can do is show the groups that have been created:

Here are some useful Eventbrite links:

  • To find and join an existing group (before you've registered)
  • To find and join an existing group (after you've registered)
  • To invite others to join your group (if you're the group captain)
  • To ask those on your group to change to another group (What? You're kicking them out of your table?)
  • To update ticket registration (i.e. name or email address) especially if you did not use individual names and email addresses for each person (required for Singaporeans and PR)
  • To edit and manage your group page

We are also keen to get volunteers, who will receive a gift card in appreciation. Sign up at:
