Yumcha networking, Sabah dinner, & Incoming missions 

Dear Members and Friends,

A few quick notices on upcoming events that might interest you.  Today marks the first day of the Lunar New Year, one of the biggest occasions in the Asian social calendar.  It is also an important time to build business relationships for the year ahead.  Here are several events in February that facilitate this.
 
Yumcha Networking!

We're just a week away from our networking lunch on Monday, February 15th.  Come celebrate the Lunar New Year with AMBC members and friends - it will be a delicious affair at the Shanghai Dynasty (Chinatown), with plenty of good cheer.  Book online by clicking on this link.

Sabah Tour Dinner Briefing

This August, AMBC Victoria, in conjunction with the Australia Asian Association, will be embarking on a Friendship Tour to Sabah, Malaysia.

This bespoke tour offers a range of interesting experiences and sights - from reviving the deep historical connection between the peoples of Australia and Malaysia, to exploring Sabah's natural beauty, and experiencing the rich culture and warm hospitality of its people.  Also planned are several welcome events by local and state government, as well as local business interests and Sabah Tourism.

This tour promises to be a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get to know Sabah and its peoples at an intimate level.  If you are interested to know more, please join us in a dinner briefing on February 22nd where Sabah Tourism, AMBC and AAA representatives will present our planned itinerary and be available to answer any questions we may have regarding the trip. Details of the dinner briefing can be found on our website or by clicking on this link.
