Addressing his staff, Chief Executive Officer Mr. Lee Chee Ming believed that despite the tough past year, there were still many things to be thankful for. He said, “No doubt, we have made progress but there is still a long way to go before breaking even. There are many challenges ahead and the task is not getting easier, especially when other hotels are dropping their selling prices even in the face of rising costs.
