It was my honor to be invited by Tan Seri Richard Cham (Chairman of Selangor Turf club (STC) to attend his luncheon at STC Chairman Lounge on 25 January 2014.
Currently Tan Seri Richard Cham is also the Chairman of Lembaga Totalisator Malaysia (TOTE BOARD), President of STC Equestrian and Sports Centre and Committee Member of Malayan Racing Association (M.R.A.)
We had interesting and meaningful dialogue about horses during the luncheon.
I met a lovely Australian couple, John Penrose and Annetta at the next-door-lounge of STC before attending Tan Seri Cham’s luncheon. This couple who were first time visiting to Malaysia expressed their compliments on Selangor Turf Club, especially the greenery racecourse. I told Tan Seri Cham about the story. He was very happy with the foreigners’ comments.
Tan Seri Cham showed his admiration for my horse painting. And he would like to commission me to conduct a live art show ( 3 feet x 23 feet usual length horse painting) which was going to be grandly broad casted to overseas during the STC race day on 1 February 2014 in conjunction with Chinese New Year Celebration. And I accepted his offer.
Another guest of honor from Malaysia Royal Family attending the luncheon that day was YAM Tunku Dato’ Seri Shahabuddin, Immediate Past Chairman of Selangor Turf Club and Honorary Life Chairman of Malaysia Australia Business Council.
Also present were Puan Seri Louise Cham (wife of Tan Seri Richard Cham), Dato’ Lee Su Ha (Managing Director, BJ Homes Development Sdn Bhd), Dato’ Thomas Liew (Managing Director, One Best Development Sdn Bhd), Dato’ Arthur Lim (Deputy President, Pertubuhan Persahabatan Luar Wilayah ZheJiang China dan Malaysia), Senator Chiew Lian Keng and some other prominent figures in society.
