PRESIDENT’S

MESSAGE

Dear Members

It is the time of year that we are reminded of giving with love and

thanksgiving. I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to all fellow

members for their unceasing support in 2010. The Management Committee

waits in great anticipation to make the Club even better as we embark on

the next phase of redevelopment for the Recreation Complex.

We have finally commenced the renovation work for Three Bars to be

relocated to the Recreation Complex. This will be followed by a total

revamp of Man Zhu Café in mid November. Do keep a look out for all the

exciting offerings and upcoming events upon the re-opening of our Food &

Beverage outlets. A new Beer Kiosk will also be launched by the pool side at

the Sports Complex. Please refer to the Bulletin on page 7 for more details.

The Club has been receiving feedback with regards to the complimentary

food and drinks provided in the Jackpot Room. As you may be aware, the

complimentary food and drinks provided in the Jackpot Room are actually

meant for the Jackpot players’ consumption only. However, in past years

when jackpot revenue was healthy, this bye-law was not strictly enforced. The two integrated resorts have

cannibalized 40% of the Club’s jackpot revenue recently and in order for the Club to maintain its competitiveness

by providing better service to jackpot players, the existing jackpot room bye-law has to be strictly enforced. This

measure is also taken to prevent the further erosion of the dwindling revenue margins. In this respect, we would

like to seek members’ understanding. I would also like to seek members’ co-operation when using the facilities

in the Club. Considerate gestures like not removing reading materials from the Reading Room and refraining

from sleeping on the seats at the Lobby will help make our Club not only premier in terms of facilities, but also in

character as well.

As we approach year 2011, we have planned a myriad of activities for the members, young and old. Be overwhelmed

as you watch the accredited chefs whip up some tantalizing Tempura, mouthwatering Teochew Kuehs, rich Nonya

fares and palatable Christmas log cake or Tiramisu in our culinary classes. Do mark your calendar for some workouts

or leisure events in the midst of the yummy indulgence and feastings. You can maintain a stress free and healthy

lifestyle with activities such as Power Yoga, Rhumbarobics, Social Dance and MTV Dance. The little ones can also

have their fair share of fun this school holidays with the Sorcerer’s Magic and Tom Raiderz Brainy Challenge.

Last but not least, on behalf of the Management Committee and all the staff, I wish you Love this Christmas and

that the joy of the coming of our Lord Jesus touch your lives and bring peace to your hearts. Have a Blessed

Christmas and a Spirit filled year ahead.

Shalom and God Bless,

Edwin Lee

President

13th CSC-SIA Group Sports Club Annual

Bilateral Games

It was the time of the year again, when two clubs with rich sporting histories

came together to spar in friendship. It was also a opportunity for members of

both clubs to catch up with old friends and establish new friendships.

The first to start the games was golf. A total of 36 golfers from both sides woke

up in the wee hours of 18 September to make the drive up North, heading

towards the Tanjong Puteri Golf Resort for an early morning tee-off. With a total

of 429 Stableford points, CSC took the lead in the overall tally, winning narrowly

by a margin of 9 Stableford points.

Another contest taking place off the host’s premises was bowling, with the

keglers convening at SAFRA Tampines’ Orchid Bowl. With the ever tough SIA

team as our opponent, it was an uphill task for our bowlers to get one over their

counterparts on their home turf. Results of the game turned out to be a great

upset with CSC scoring a landslide 23-7 win over SIA.

Five other sports namely the Badminton, Billiards & Snooker, Squash, Table

Tennis and Tennis, faced off simultaneously at the SIA Group Sports Club’s

excellent facilities. CSC managed to exert its sporting authority with another

four wins out of the five, achieving an overall 6-1 win.

In the evening, members of both clubs had a delightful time of interaction over a lavishly served meal by the host. Even though

this game had come to a closure, all athletes would certainly be raring to go again with great anticipation, enthusiasm and

passion for the 14th Games.

Hong Kong Open Swimming Championships

Six CSC swimmers were selected to represent the nation in this meet along with Coach Fan Yu Bo who also happened to be one

of the appointed coaches. The swimmers were Richard Chng, Lionel Khoo, Arren Quek, Koh Hui Yu, Tiffany Koh and Cheryl Lim.

Lionel Khoo continued his unrelenting siege on Breaststroke records by re-writing the National U17 50M record twice, in the heats

and then again in the finals. The record now stands at 0:28.93. Another record owned by him, the 100M, was also re-established

(1:04.06) and Lionel now holds the 50M, 100M and 200M National U17 Breaststroke records.

Chinese Swimming Club – Kason Age

Group Badminton (Invitational)

Tournament 2010

It was the biggest ever turnout for the competition that was

into its sixth year, perhaps even in Singapore. A grand total

of 1433 participants took part in 16 categories held from

6 to 12 September. The Badminton Hall was bustling with

joie de vivre from as early as 7.30am till 10.30pm daily.

Coinciding with the one- week tournament period was the

Hari Raya Puasa. Nevertheless, thoughtful arrangements

were made specially for Muslim participants to minimize

disruption to their celebration.

There was a turn-up of more than 400 spectators for the

finals on 12 September. Among them was the Guestof-Honour

Mr Lee Yi Shyan, Minister of State for Trade

& Industry and Manpower and President of Singapore

Badminton Association. Mr Lee was accompanied by

our Club President Mr Edwin Lee, the Club Captain Mr

Nicholas Lim, Li-Ning Sports Singapore Pte Ltd General Manager Ms Vivien Lim, and General Manager ASEAN, Fuji Xerox

Printer Channel Mr Vincent Sim. Press representatives from several news agencies were also present to cover the signing of

Memorandum of Understanding for the Chinese Swimming Club Li-Ning Badminton Academy.

With participants from Malaysia, Indonesia and China, our very own local youths had to pit their wits and skills against the

very best. The atmosphere at the Finals was indeed electrifying as every point was greeted with loud cheers. Our trainees

Chan Min Anne and Kaitlyn Hong as well as Ngiam Jin Hao and Chan Chen Hoong did the Club proud by finishing Joint 2nd

Runners-up in the Girls Doubles 9 & Under, and the Boys Doubles 17 & Under respectively.

We would like to thank our main sponsor Li-Ning Sports Singapore Pte Ltd and co-sponsor Fuji Xerox for their generous

contribution. We would also like to thank Singapore Badminton Association, C&T Trade Services, 100 Plus, Food Empire

Holding Pte Ltd, Pilot Pen (S) Pte Ltd and Freshening Industries Pte Ltd, as well as all supporters and participants for their

continuous support.

Alexander Popov & Dr Rania Elwani Swim Clinic

CSC had the opportunity to host the Swim Clinic conducted by Russian

swimming legend, Alexander Popov, alongside one of Egypt’s greatest

athlete’s ever, Dr Rania Elwani. Popov is widely regarded, as one of the

best sprint swimmers in history and Dr Elwani probably being the most

successful female African swimmers of all time. Both were in Singapore

to promote the inaugural Youth Olympics as International Olympic

Council members.

The young elite swimmers of the various swimming clubs were invited

to attend this fruitful and entertaining sharing session with the two

swimming icons. Also in attendance were dignitaries such as Dr Tan Eng

Liang, Vice President of the Singapore National Olympic Council and Mr

Jeffrey Leow, President of the Singapore Swimming Association.

Besides precious advice and tips, the young talents also got up close and

personal with their idols during the autograph and photography session

as the clinic comes to a closure.

16th SSC Open Invitational Midget Meet 2010

40 handpicked pocket dynamos were given a big task on their little shoulders – to retain the Open Midget title. 14 other clubs

from around the region also had their sights on the coveted title and they would take some beating. Not to worry though, as

our boys and girls had their entourage of daddies, mummies and other family members out in full support.

While the outlook before the competition was rosy and expectant, the results were stunning to say the least. CSC defended the

title by a margin of 161 points, fending off the host Singapore Swimming Club 606.5 to 445.5. Of the 28 Gold medals, 14 were

meet records – 6 individuals and 8 relays. Three swimmers – Maximus Liew, Natalie Ho and Zachary Ian Tan were also named

Top Performers for their respective age groups.

Much credit goes to the coaches – Yang Wei Jia, Yi Fan, Jeffrey Ng & Chng Kiam Choon and Team Manager Melvyn Ang

for their diligent preparation. The future certainly looks bright for this team and greater success beckons!

Single Age Group Swimming Meet 2010

A bumper turnout of 165 swimmers made this year’s Single Age Group one of the best-participated meets in recent years!

Various successes enjoyed by CSC in the past two to three years in the interclub meets has certainly attracted new members

to join the Club for the swimming program and also motivated the younger swimmers to emulate their seniors. Once again,

parent volunteers who had painstakingly contributed to the successful running of the meet ended it in good time despite

the large number of entries.

FINA / Arena Swimming World Cup 2010 Series

Two of CSC’s most promising young swimmers made the long journey to Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro for the world’s short course meet,

donning Singapore colours. Although the going was tough pitting themselves against the world’s elite, the duo established several

personal bests.

Jeremy set new best times for all his four events – 100M Back, 200M Back, 400M Free and 1,500M Free. Marina took part in the

200M Individual Medley, 400M Individual Medley, 100M Fly and 400M Free, attaining three best times out of the four events.

The meet was an excellent exposure and would certainly contribute greatly to their future development as representatives of

both the Club and for Singapore.

The replay of the 2nd Game which was postponed since 2 July due to the rain was held at Keppel Club on 13 August.

A total of 131 golfers from seven Clubs took part in the event, including 26 golfers from our Club.

The enthusiastic golfers reported as early as 11.30am for the 1pm shotgun tee-off. The weather this time round was splendid

as members from Changi Beach Club, Chinese Swimming Club, Serangoon Gardens Country Club, Singapore Cricket Club,

Singapore Recreation Club, Singapore Swimming Club and Tanglin Club basked in their newfound friendships.

Dinner was held at the Keppel Hall with good food and of course, ice-cold beer! Medals for the top two players from each

Club were presented by their respective Convenor. The winner’s trophy was then presented to Singapore Cricket Club who

won the leg with 292 Stableford points, 2 points ahead of Singapore Recreation Club. Singapore Cricket Club was also

the winner for the 1st leg and the hot favourite at the challenge trophy. As the replay heads to an end, we look forward

Hua Hin Golf Tour

The simple trip organized for Golf section members to “Golf in Hua Hin” turned out to be one of the most successful golfing trips

in recent years with 48 participants. Two coaches were required to ferry the golfers everyday to breath-taking courses around the

quaint seaside town from 18 to 21 August.

Everyone gathered at Changi Airport from as early as 5.30am to check-in and upon touchdown at Suvarnabhumi Airport, the

golfers were whisked away for a four-hour ride to Black Mountain Golf Club. Fluffy clouds cast dark shadows on the surrounding

mountains, thus giving the Club its name and all jet lag dissipated upon seeing the lush greeneries. After the game, the golfers

traveled to Hua Hin Residences, a cluster of villas hidden 20 minutes from the town.

The destination next morning was the Banyan Golf and Resort and it was even bigger and more challenging than the first. Despite

the rolling hills, no one was complaining, and there was even a hole overlooking the ocean! As it was a morning game, there was

time to trawl through the town proper and to taste local delicacies. We even made a visit to factory outlet to grab bargain items!

On the third day, we went to Springfield Royal Country Club which was designed by Jack Nicklaus. The course was well-maintained

and even featured the 18th hole on a small island in the middle of the lake. During the final night, we were served a lavishly

prepared seafood buffet dinner by the renowned hotel chef. Despite the heavy evening downpour, it did not deter our members

from dancing through the night.

The last course before we bade goodbye to the land of smiles was the Palm Hill Golf Club. It took another four hours journey back

to the airport and was past mid-night by the time we had landed back in Singapore. Though the four-day trip was arduous, the

smiles, memories and friendships brought back by the golfers were undeniably priceless.

ENZYME NUTRITION HEALTH TALK Daphne Phoa

What are enzymes and what do they do We are honoured to have Ms Charlene Hui, a certified Enzyme Therapist from

the Transformation Enzyme Corporation, USA, Texas, to share with us on the benefits of this little element and how it can

affect our health. Approximately 50 registered members turned up for the session on 10 Jul 2010 to find out more.

Enzymes are proteins essential to life. The human immune system depends on the proper amount of enzymes in order to

function properly. Each of us is born with a fixed amount of enzymes, however our body requires additional and frequent

intake of enzymes in the form of fresh foods.

Food enzymes are present in raw foods and are usually just sufficient to help the body digest that particular food.

Unfortunately, enzymes are usually destroyed during cooking which goes beyond 118°C. This is the reason why we need

to consume more fresh fruits and vegetables. Another wonderful

suggested enzymes booster is the good old traditional “Yu Sheng”

(raw fish). For all other salad enthusiasts, do remember to go easy on

the salad dressings as too much can be unhealthy. It would be best

if salads are consumed without any dressing.

Towards the end of the session, members were treated to a free blood

analysis and consultation by Ms Hui to identify conditions within the

blood that could adversely affect or improve their general health.

As a gentle reminder to you our beloved members, include more fresh

fruits and vegetables as well as “Yu Sheng” into your diet.

CHOICE OF PORK CUTS Wendy Tan

Choosing the right pork cuts can affect the taste of that special dish you

are preparing. We were privileged to have Chef Roy who shared with us this

wonderful tip and four yummy recipes to our 21 earnest participants present on

22 August 2010. Samples of the pork cuts were shown and explained, following

which Chef Roy demonstrated the first yummy recipe using the most expensive

of all pork cuts - Pork Fillet with Apples and Prune. As we were eagerly anticipating

for the pork fillet to simmer, Chef took no time to waste and proceeded with the

next recipe, a slow-cooking oven-baked dish which requires an hour’s worth of

marination - Baked Pork Rib with Barbecued Sauce.

Coming up next is a simple yet refreshingly mouthwatering number - Pork

Steak Pineapple Salsa. Sliced pork steak was seasoned with just salt and pepper

before being pan seared to and completed with some refreshingly made

tropical Pineapple Salsa.

Alas, how can we forget our ever so popular Sweet and Sour Pork! Seasoned

Cubed cut pork were deep-fried till golden brown before a special made

sauce was drizzled over. Much

to everyone’s delight, this was a

successful workshop with all those wonderful tips, great recipes, last

but not least, a yummy and hearty time of food tasting!

PREVENTING & BEATING OSTEOPOROSIS Wendy Tan

Osteoporosis is a bone disease that leads to an increased risk of fracture,

affecting life expectancy and quality of life. A total of 16 participants turned

up for the informative and interactive workshop conducted by Omigreen

Wellness on 29 August 2010. A panel of health professionals made up of

a doctor, dietitian, nutritionist and consultants, were present to educate

and answer queries raised. The topics presented were on the signs and

symptoms of osteoporosis, prevention methods and also diet planning.

A hip replacement video including early detection and prevention of the

disease was also shared during the workshop. In the midst of the sharing,

the group participated in some on-the-spot

simple stretching exercises and enjoyable

quizzes as well. The session was indeed an

eye opener and we were delighted to bring

home a goodie bag with compliments from
