Delectable buffet spread, classy music and awesome friends from near and far set the tone for the early birthday celebration of Mr. Peter Chan. On the guest list of The Haven Chief Executive Officer included close friends, unit owners, business partners and associates as well as staff members.
The evening was also a time to give thanks for all the wonderful blessings in life. In his brief opening speech, Mr. Peter said, “Let’s give thanks to the many great miracles of the universe! We give thanks to our precious life, to the nature that surrounds us and last but not least, to our relationships.
“Life is a difficult journey full of sufferings but these challenges only make us stronger, to be better. Overcoming hardships gives meaning to life.
“Let us give thanks to this blessed development, The Haven. It is a 5-star hybrid property of a resort hotel and residences. Over the years, it has unfortunately received over two hundred accusations, which I can say, are all false. And today, you are here to see for yourself what a fine property The Haven is and I can assure you that we are here to stay.”
In his speech, Mr. Peter also announced the good news that The Haven has bagged another international award: World Luxury Restaurant Award for categories of Luxury Wedding Venue (Global) and Luxury Hotel Restaurant (Country). The awards ceremony will be held in Switzerland later this year.
The event was an opportunity for Mr. Peter to unveil his Bintan (Indonesia) project to his guests. The development, named The Haven Bintan Resort, is a S$1 billion integrated hospitality project, located on Bintan Island, 40km from Singapore. Bintan has been dubbed the Hawaii of Southeast Asia.
This outstanding environmentally-friendly development of The Haven Bintan Resort sits on a 60-acre site at Lagoi Bay, along the northern shore of the island, and will comprise eight 26-storey towers of both serviced condominiums and condotels.
The development, boasting the tallest, largest and most exclusive towers in the entire Riau Islands Province, will consist of a convention centre, condotels, villas, a hotel, and commercial retail lots.
Similar to The Haven Ipoh, The Haven Bintan Resort is surrounded by natural environment. The site boasts three idyllic water bodies of sea, river and lake.
A couple of surprises were sprung over the evening. First, it was Mr. Peter’s talent as a lyricist, followed by the talent of staff as dancers, singers and even rappers!
We were all having a whale of our time until a piercing scream broke out in the ballroom. Two gigantic gorillas invaded the party and attempted to kidnap the birthday boy!
The Haven’s Tyrannosaurus Rex came to life and barged in to save the day. What a memorable birthday celebration-cum-thanksgiving it was! And I dare speak on behalf of all the guests that we really enjoyed ourselves!
