1. Saturday, 18 Oct, 2014 09:00am – 12:00pm – Walking Tour of Historic Tanjong Pagar and the Telok Ayer Coastline

King’s College London Alumni Society Singapore cordially invite you to a historic walking tour of Tanjong Pagar and the Telok Ayer coastline. The tour begins at Keramat Habib Noh and end at UOB Plaza. Today’s Tanjong Pagar was where Tanjong Malang, Mount Palmer, Mount Wallich and Cursetjee Hill were once located. This particular area was home to many different groups, as illustrated by the diversity of the architecture, e.g. a Hakka Taoist temple, a Yemeni mausoleum, a Parsi graveyard, and Keramat Habib Noh (where a local Sufi saint is buried). The next part of the tour will follow the original Telok Ayer coastline and includes the former Mount Erskine, Nezha temple, Datuk-Kong, a holy Hokkien shrine, the former Oei Tiong Ham office, Mazu and City God temple, and an underground mosque by Boat Quay. Prof. Widodo will explain details of the sites as we walk along the route. After the tour, we plan to lunch at at a venue to be confirmed.

3. Saturday, 25 Oct, 2014 02:00pm – 04:30pm – Nanyang Business School Alumni Affairs’ Weekend Focus Point Series – Preparing for the Next Phase in the Monetary Cycle

Rates in the US are poised to rise. We have had unprecedented levels of interest rates, held low for an unprecedented period of time. Whilst this has led to the healing of the US economy, unfortunately it has also led to unintended consequences leading to the coining of the term “financial repression”.

Venue: Room 903 (Level 9), NTUC Centre, 1 Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018989
Cost: $30 for DUAL Members
RSVP: Please register here
As the United States scales down economic stimulus, how will other countries, especially significant Asian economies like Japan and China prepare for this next phase of the U.S. monetary cycle? In particular, will China which has recently injected liquidity into her banking system, be a global game-changer? Looking at China’s actions in light of changes in the US monetary cycle, how will a smaller economy such as Singapore be affected? What global and local implications will there be for asset allocation, real estate financing and the outlook of the property market? To find out, join us for our NBS Alumni Affairs’ Weekend Focus Point Series on ‘Preparing for the next phase in the monetary cycle’, with our speaker Mr Vincent Kok. Mr Vincent Kok is an NBS Alumnus from the Accountancy Class of 1991, and is currently the Chief Investment Officer of Delphi Capital Management (New York, USA).
