Socials this week

Good morning ladies,

Just a gentle reminder of the 2 social events we have lined up for you this week:
Thursday 25th September:
Walk from Parkview via the reservoirs to Stanley, a gentle, mainly flat, walk with the option of a cuppa or lunch at the end in Stanley.
Karen and Lynn are going to do this walk anyway, we have Sharon and (maybe) Davina confirmed too – if anyone else would like to join us, please email back here so we know who to wait for!
We will meet at 9.30 at the top of Parkview, by the gates to Tai Tam, the walk should take a couple of hours.
The weather forecast at the moment is cloudy, obviously if it’s raining we will have a rethink and advise those who have said they are coming.
Friday 26th September:
The Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning – is being held at Jenny Dev’s place in Mid Levels (address to be forwarded soon), from 10am to noon(ish).
Please come along to help raise money for this worthwhile Cancer charity in the UK, tell your friends, bring some cakes, eat some cakes, drink tea/coffee/juice, have a catch up with old friends and meet some new ones, have a go at the fund raising games Macmillan have given to each coffee morning – and we can put Hong Kong on the map too!
Hope to see many of you at either of this weeks events!

Macmillan Worlds Largest Coffee Morning

Ladies,

It’s only 2 and a half weeks away… that time of year where we can all ‘legitamately’ sit and drink coffee/tea, eat cakes and have a good old natter, and still raise lots of dollars for a worthwhile charity!
Yes, the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is nearly here.
What do we need you to do to help make this as successful as last year???
Spread the word, bake some cakes (or shop bought!) and be there to be part of a great morning of fun. Macmillan have provided a couple of ‘games’, which will cost a couple of dollars to have a go – remember it all goes to a great charity.
Jenny Dev has once again agreed to host – thank you Jenny. We will email Jenny’s address nearer the time.
Please take the time to ask your friends to pop in – maybe there are some budding Ladies Circler’s out there?
We look forward to seeing you there!

September meeting details

Our September dinner meeting will be held on Thursday the 4th September at The Harbour Room at Aberdeen Boat Club (ABC), 20 Shum Wan Road, Aberdeen , starting at 7.30 pm.
We have a fantastic line up for this first meeting after the Summer break.

  • Maggie will be joining us from Small Group Homes, bringing one of the older children from the homes to meet us.  We will be presenting Maggie with a cheque with our annual donation.
  • Gorden Marsden will deliver a brief overview about Pedal Kart, what it’s all about and how we can help support the event – in the run up to the November event – something Ladies Circle supports each year.
  • Finally, our after dinner speaker is Susanne Schutz of Suzhong Consulting who will give us a brief talk on The top 10 exterior and interior features to look for when searching for a new home (or possibly office): This will be more like an illustrated checklist of very basic things to look for and I’ll give a few simple remedies on how to fix “bad’ interior features – keeping in mind that not everything is “fixable”. There will be a Q & A section so feel free to come with questions!

Members will have received their invite earlier this week from our Secretary.  I do hope you are able to join us – please RSVP to secretary@ladiescirclehk.com by Saturday 30th August.

Don’t forget you are always welcome to bring your friends along to the dinners and talks as well – we are very keen to widen the membership and introduce new and fresh ideas.

Yours in Friendship,


		

Welcome Back from Summer Holidays…


We hope you have all had a fantastic summer, wherever you have been, or just ‘enjoying’ the heat in HK? We are all slowly returning to normality, with most children back to school next week, and time for LCHK to start back again after a couple of months off!
As you are aware, we have our Welcome Back drinks on the 27th in Iberico, we are looking forward to seeing many of you there – those who have replied as a yes are Sharon H, Emma and Lisa (+1). If you are intending to come, please can you let us know as we will be booking a table in the next few days (Iberico is very popular) – thanks. Also, if you have met anyone new to HK over the summer and would like her to come along as a potential new member, to see what we’re all about, that’d be great, can I just ask that you let us know, from a numbers perspective.
Also, please remember our Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on 26th September, more details to follow, but in the meantime, please save the date in your diaries/calendars etc as we’d love lots of people to come throughout the morning, to make it even more successful.
There are a couple more social events coming up in September which we will advise about in due course.
Yours in friendship
Karen and Caroline

Social walk around The Peak

A small group of us had a little stroll (although a couple came dressed for a power walk!) around Lugard Road at The Peak, Hong Kong Island’s highest point. The sun shone for us on Thursday, the views were lovely and the lunch at Cafe Deco after was fab.

 

 

Thank you Lisa for the photos, did we sign up the stick insect???

June Socials

Hi Ladies,
Here are the details of the social events we have lined up for you in June. It will be the last chance for most of us to get together before people head off for the Summer, so we hope as many of you as possible will be able to come along.
On Thursday 12th June, we are planning to head to the Peak and meet at around 11 am to do the circular walk, before having lunch at 12.30 pm at Cafe Deco in the Peak Galleria.
On Thursday 19th June, we are off to DROP nightclub (Basement, On Lok Mansion, 39-43 Hollywood Road) for a ‘Martini and Manicure’ evening which will run from 7.30 to 10.30 pm.The cost is $220 per head, and this includes a manicure, and either two martinis of your choice, 2 standard drinks (which are: house pouring spirit, wine, juices, and some cocktails and beers) or one glass of Moet & Chandon champagne (sorry champagne drinkers!).
We need to mention that the club’s cancellation policy, is that any cancellation made less than one week in advance of the night will be charged in full, so please be aware that if you say you will come and then need to cancel, you must let us know by 12th June or you will still have to pay for your place if we can’t find someone else to take it. Understandably, they need to make arrangements for staff and manicurists for the number we book for.
For those of you who have not been to one of these nights, we can assure you that they are good fun, and of course we can buy more drinks when we have used up our inclusive ones! A provisional booking has been made to secure the venue, but please let us know as soon as possible if you can come so we can firm up the numbers, which may be limited if they get other bookings for the night.
Please e-mail if you would like to join us on either (or both!) of these events.
Caroline and Karen

		

Joyful Rice Dumpling Tuen Ng Festival Home Visit

Thanks to all ladies from Ladies Circle HK who came to support the project of HK Family Welfare Society – Joyful Rice Dumpling Tuen Ng Festival Home Visit today.

We had the briefing session by social workers, Yvonne and Ms Yip from HKFWS and then we visited the elderly families in Sai Ying Pun and Kennedy town.   It was lovely to deliver the goody bags, dumplings, care and love to them.

Mahjong evening

Recent Mahjong night at Laura’s

A wonderful night of fun, learning and chatting as we pong’d, sheung’d and chow’d at Laura’s place. Experienced ladies showed those new to the game how to play and we all had a laugh as we tried to outthink one another’s moves, and also managed to raise $500 for charity.

Thursdays Heritage Walk

Thank you once again Sharon for guiding us on our Heritage Walk yesterday through Wong Tai Sing and Kowloon Walled City.
