It’s Friday night and I’m heading to the Shangri-La Hotel for a very special evening.
The Singapore Council of Women’s Organization (SCWO) has organised an inspiring festive gala evening in honor of International Women’s Day. They have carried out some impressive research and found 108 extraordinary ladies who have done (and still do) incredible work in Singapore and the region.
Guests of honor are President Tony Tan and Mrs. Mary Tan. I was privileged to be among the excited crowd and to ‘wash’ myself in their glowing light and energy. Whilst sitting in the beautiful hall, looking at them and listening to their achievements and visions being fulfilled, I couldn’t resist smiling and feel happy being a woman. I believe we, the women, have outstanding abilities and energy, to dream, to dare, to visualize our life and achieving the best. And most of the time, our best suits so many others best as well… Being a woman defines our ability to enjoy various elements common to our basic personalities, among which are our advanced emotional intelligence and our multi-tasking abilities.
I was looking at those women, leaders in many fields, some of the ladies have been here for almost a decade. One of my conclusions was that we should all keep thinking, planning and executing our dreams and desires since it is probably the optimal way to keep ourselves in good shape. Our brains continuously functioning and ‘pulling’ our bodies along with them.
The senior ladies here this evening are living proof of this. “Singapore Women’s Hall Of Fame” they called the evening, I couldn’t think of a better name for it. Best wishes to all you dear people.
