The Singapore version of Welcome To Your City – a HAA global event aimed primarily at Harvard alumni who graduated in the past ten years. Held September 27 at Paulaner Brauhaus, with reps from HCS, the HBS Club of Singapore and Harvard Alumni Entrepreneurs Singapore.
Thank you everyone who came down to paint and meet new alums last Sunday! Some pictures of what went down:
In an office conference room surrounded by a fantastic view of the National Gallery, Parliament House and the Padang, Harvard Professor Eugene Wang guided us through the evolution of Buddhist art from the 1920s to modern era, which he concisely did by explaining how various schools of thought and significant historical personalities apply art and science to shape Buddhist art into what it is now. He also shared an interesting video created by Harvard FAS CAMLab that applies virtual reality and cutting-edge media technology to engage and transport participants beyond the here and now, across the continuum of time and space to showcase some aspects of Buddhist art.
Last but not least, Professor Eugene Wang concluded his talk with an engaging Q&A session, in which he generously gave more than 30mins of his time to our alumni present. We wish Professor Eugene Wang a safe trip back to Boston during Singapore’s National Day and look forward to hosting him again in the near future.

Many thanks for gathering to see “Return to Seoul” (2022) at The Projector Golden Mile Tower – really enjoyable chat before and after the movie
A big thank you to everyone who came down for our evening yoga flow in conjunction with Jyan studio! Great to see new and old faces, along with friends from partner university LBS 🙂
We conducted our annual AGM on 20th March at the One Farrer hotel. The AGM was well attended, during which we introduced the newly elected committee members as well as passed several resolutions.
A cozy group of alumni had a lovely evening with Vice Provost Mark Eliot and Prof James Robson that started as a discussion which morphed into cocktails and then finally a chicken rice dinner. Mark Eliot likened his role at times as Harvard’s “Chief International Officer”; and clearly both these senior faculty members were on a mission to engage and connect with the international alumni and specifically those of us in Southeast Asia. As the Director for the Asia Centre, James Robson spoke very specifically of that intention.
That rounds out our events for 2022 – Happy Holidays everyone!
On 1 December we held a joint drinks gathering with the HBS Club of Singapore at Bar.Celona on Battery Road. The hardy crew came despite a lot of rain to kick off the holiday season.
