NOTE OF APPRECIATION

The biggest show of the year for the Alumni is over! We can all take a rest now and heal our tired bodies and mind before continuing to soldier on for other good causes.

As the dinner advisor for this year, I would like to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to all that had made our event last night an outstanding one (only to be matched by the much-hyped AIM awards).
We are in a class of our own now when it comes to organizing events. From the initial feedback that I gather, we did a marvelous job.

There were many firsts for the Alumni that night:

  • It is the first time that we had so many people attending the dinner. Tickets sold were in excess of 630 but the number that turned up last night were about 560. We are still tallying up the numbers by batches and will give all of you an update later.
  • It was the first time that the Alumni dinner was held with a majority of the sponsorships and funding coming from Alumni members. Look at the souvenir program book and you will notice that almost all sponsorships came from the alumni.
  • It was also the first time that we had given away so many awards from the Alumni. Someone commented that we should re-name the event: THE SMSS ALUMNI DINNER & AWARDS NIGHT" similar along the lines of the AIM or Academy awards.
  • It was also the first time that the dinner has so many performers from the Alumni. Something I think should continue as it really saved us a lot of money from paying professional artistes or musicians and it was also more enjoyable as we can all relate to the performers. Jay Jay - I think we are about to serve you notice!

We did not have any Datuks or ministerial VIPs, nevertheless, we had good coverage from the papers and from NTV 7. Thank you, Che' Na and Azura. And check out the papers in the nest few days to see the coverage of our dinner.
In future, we may just make do with our own VIPs from the Alumni. Mind you, our Alumni consist of some very important & famous people too. En Johari Dasri, too bad you cannot make it, but there is always next year.

To all the award winners- you deserve it! We recognize your effort and contribution to the alumni and to the dinner.
