It was a gathering of new and old alumni together with members of the Department of Economics at the Economics Alumni Trishaw Fund-raising event. 30 trishaws were sponsored by our alumni members as part of fund raising for the NUS Economics Bursary Fund. Each trishaw was sponsored for $500. On 30 November 2012, 60 alumni, family members and relatives gathered at the Albert Mall Trishaw Park for a one-hour trishaw ride around Little India, City Hall and the Bugis area.
Donned in the NUS Department of Economics T-shirt and honoured by the presence of the Department Head, Prof Julian Wright, participants were treated to night scenes in Little India, passing by the all famous shop-houses specializing in Indian traditional produce as well as the Besar Food Centre and classic landmarks like the Raffles Hotel. The sights and sounds of night time city Singapore was a sight to behold and many enjoyed themselves in this event. Friends were made and old friends reunited in this event.
Overall the event raised $15,000 for the NUS Economics Alumni Bursary Fund with support from the NUS Department of Economics. The Economics Alumni thank Chan Kok Hoe, Daniel Lo, Monica Chang, Tang Wee Lip and Dr Lee Soo Ann for their effort in putting this event together.
