SECRETARY OF THE NEW CLUB - MR. K. SUBRAMANIAM The Hon. Secretary, Mr. K. Subramaniam, in welcoming the members, called the meeting to order and then invited Mr. President to make his address. AGENDA 1 - PRESIDENT’S ADDRESS – MR. TANG YUET MUN Thank you, Mr. K. Subramaniam, our dreadnought Hon. Secretary who walks through life instead of being dragged through it like a focused and condensed sunbeam that burns through the various claptraps of the day. Keeps us in the straight and narrow. I take it that we have a quorum and only qualified members and/or employees of the club are at this AGM. Please join me in a minute of silence as a token of respect to the late Messrs Kenneth Koay and Loh Chow Khuan who passed away in May this year. Both these gentlemen enriched the lives of those who know them personally. Our minute of silence is also to remember the millions who died due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Thank you. Good evening, “vanakam”, “sastrika”, “selamat petang”, “dã jiã wãn shãng hão” and welcome to the 126th Annual General Meeting of our Club. This AGM is somewhat special in that we have had to change the ways we used to do things brought on by the Covid 19 pandemic. Where it is positive when we are tested negative, where we show our love and care by keeping our physical distance, where banks insist each of us to wear a mask in order to gain entry, where security guards measure the body temperature of doctors. All these as measures to contain the spread of the virus. Yet there are stupid, inconsiderate and callous people who flout the SOPs when they should be quarantined. May God look after and protect us from these idiotic types.Thus, we curtailed or shut down the various facilities at the Club during the Movement Control Order period and subsequent Orders as announced by both the State and Federal Government. Together we will overcome this new normal in the spirit of Club camaraderie because life goes on. During the MCO, we took the opportunity to refurbish the swimming pool, repair/replace the associated equipment that is constantly affected by the usage of chlorine in our pool. The billiard table was also refurbished, it looks and feel like new. The kitchen also had a mini face lift. The slot machine rooms in our annex at Ipoh were also closed and reopened upon the green light given by the authorities. This resulted in reduced takings from the slot machine room from 18th March 2020. We retained all our employees without any reduction of wages but had to curtail overtime. 4

On the tax matter with the LHDN, we have retained the same lawyer Mr. Saravana Kumar to handle our appeal at the High Court and was informed that on 21st August, we filed to have our case stated. The hearing date has been fixed for 9 December and the Court directed all parties to file submissions simultaneously by 18th November to which we, as appellant may file a reply (if any) by 2nd December 2020. With our level-headed Honorary Treasurer, Mr. K. Rama Krishnan who understands that those who believe without a reason, cannot be convinced by reason except by money and therein lies his commitment that has kept us liquid despite the setback brought on by our differences with the LHDN, we continue to fund the many subsections that are run effectively by the various section sub-committee members. On behalf of the General Committee, I would like to thank the various Chairmen and subcommittee members for their contribution and dedication. Without you, there is no Club, for it is the people, the software that runs the place and that which keeps the warmth and fellowship within these walls of bricks and mortar and give it life, bring out the colour, give it the sound and music creating memories for young and old. Of late there have been a few fishing lines thrown in to test the waters on complete ban of the sale of alcoholic beverages by certain quarters based on dubious reasons lacking in facts and statistics. As a Club, if required, we will make representations to the status quo. We must be vigilant and not let curtailment of our freedom creep upon us. What to wear, or what to drink, to the whims and fancies of the tunnel vision zealots who know little about trade and commerce and what keeps the economy going, being more concerned about what awaits yonder when we leave our mortal coil wherein none has ever returned. I would like to thank all the members of the General Committee for a job well done, Vice President Dr. Michael Wong who waltzes from line dance section to the vapours at the Darts Section and watching balls sink at the billiard table, our high flying Golf Captain Mr. K. Mohanachandran, armed with the knowledge that all beginnings and endings are untidy wherein he capitalizes on the time in between and breathes every moment wisely taking the golfers to more holes than they would have ever ventured. Dr. S. Gunaseelan, our long suffering and evergreen Chairman of the Swimming, Gymnasium and Sauna sections has kept up the heat in the sauna room, the crystal clear water in the swimming pool and the well-oiled treadmills. Mr. Chia Bun Weng with his usual understated style of quiet and winsome leadership in the Karaoke and Tennis sections continues to contribute, captivating the members like the sweet vapours of Malt whisky from the Highlands. Mr. Lim Sweet Chin, Mr. Silverhair, where humility in service is his middle name, typically hijacks those who come in contact with him, be it at the TaiChi section or the Slot Machine Room making them willing and happy permanent hostages. With Dato Balraaj, he is that breath of fresh air, seductive sweet scent of a ripening cempedak on heat enticing his team with fresh ideas to improve the section and facilities. Social and Entertainment Chairman, Mr. Jerry Tan had his portfolio prorogued due to the Covid 19 Pandemic denying him the chance to showcase his commitment and proven leadership that pervades at meetings where his non-compromising inquisitiveness keep us all in check and consider alternative views. 5

Under the auspices of Mr. Goh Chee Aik, we continue to enjoy the culinary dishes from William and team who are always on the lookout to introduce more variety and special dishes to entice return visits. There are whispers that our Bar can be more competitive compared to some of the local outlets in town and it is something to be considered by the F&B Chairman. Club Adviser, Dato Seri Kamarulbahrain bin Zainuddin, honorary legal advisers, Messrs Manjit Subra Associates, Mr. T. Selvadoray, Medical Adviser Dr. Quah Ban Hoe, members of our staff led by, our ever-alert Club Manager Mr. Barry Teoh and last but not least, members for your support, encouragement and constructive feedback. AGENDA 2 - To approve and confirm the minutes of the 125th Annual General Meeting held on 26th July 2019. Agenda 2 was confirmed passed as there was no objection from the floor. Proposer: Dato Dr. V. Jeganathan (J23) Seconder: Mr. Laurence David (L17) AGENDA 3 - To receive the report of General Committee for the preceding year on the affairs of the Club.

Proposer : Mr. Bala Subramaniam (B71) Seconder : Mr. Man Mohan Singh (M222) AGENDA 4 - To receive the audited financial statements for year ended 31st March 2020. The Hon. Secretary, Mr. K. Subramaniam said that no questions were received from members on the financial statements during the last seven days prior to the meeting, he asked for a proposer to pass the financial statements. Proposer : Mr. V. Raman (R88) Seconder : Mr. N. S. Kanapadathi (K164) It was so passed with no objection from the floor. AGENDA 5 - To appoint auditors for the Club for the year 2020/2021. The present auditors, Chi-LLTC Chartered Accountants, have offered themselves for re-appointment. The General Committee recommended they be retained at a fee to be agreed between the General Committee and the auditors. Proposer : Mr. Low Fatt Lum (L150) Seconder : Mr. P. Jayarajan (J48) As there was no objection, Chi-LLTC was re-elected as auditors for the following year. AGENDA 6 - To transact to any other business which due notice in accordance with rule 7.3(a) is given as follows; The Hon. Secretary, Mr. K. Subramaniam announced that there was no motion received and therefore no business to discuss. 6

AGENDA 7 - General matters. Dato’ Dr. V. Jeganathan (J23) requested to know our chamber’s occupancy rate at the moment and why the wooden flooring was painted. He felt the flooring was sticky and had caused an allergy to his guests. He suggested that if the Management can consider carpeting the whole flooring. Mr. President replied that we have been getting good response for both our chambers until the recent pandemic situation which caused a lot of cancellations lately. He urged Dato Dr. Jeganathan to view the chamber occupancy statistics made available at our noticeboard throughout the years. As for his second question on the floor painting, he was informed by the Club Manager that they had to varnish and apply epoxy paint to maintain the plywood flooring, which has been infested by termites. On his suggestion to cover the flooring with carpet, he would leave it to the Administration to consider the suggestion. AGENDA 8 - Adjournment Speech. Mr. President thanked all members for their attendance and participation in the meeting. He appreciated members who came forward to give their suggestions and observations to help improve the Club. He hoped that members would also play a part to help upkeep and care of the equipment when using the facilities. Being selfish or inconsiderate can only hasten impairment of the equipment and create unnecessary expenditure and temporary closure of the facility. There being no further matters, the meeting was adjourned at 8:25p.m. with a vote of thanks to the Chair. ………………………………… …………………………………….. HON. SECRETARY PRESIDENT 7

GOLF - Golf Captain - Vice Captain Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 - Secretary Mr. K. Mohanachandran - Treasurer Mr. Ong Hong Kong, AMN - Tournament Director Dr. Gurbachan Singh, KMN, BSK, AMP - Food & Beverage Mr. Laurence David, AMP - Committee Member Mr. Low Fatt Lam - Committee Member Mr. Lim Sweet Chin - Ex-officio Mr. Lip Kwai Yin Mr. Benny Cheah Yal Beng Mr. K. Subramaniam The year 2020/2021 has been indeed a very challenging year for the Golf Section. Due to the closure of the BJG&CC Taiping, in July 2019, the golfers have been deprived of a local course to play and compelled to play golf in other golf courses causing immense inconvenience. Nevertheless the Golf Section has organized regular monthly medal games at golf courses in other districts and states. However, during some months the organised competitions were disrupted due to the MCO enforcement as a result of Covid 19. Notwithstanding, the monthly medal games held received good response from the section members and the Golf Section will continue to organise the competitions when the MCO is lifted by the authorities. We managed to organise the November monthly medal at Damai Laut Golf & Country Club in conjunction with Deepavali, cash prizes for which were sponsored by the Indian golfers. For the first time we had to forgo organizing the President’s Cup and Captain’s Cup due to the enforcement of the MCO. However, we were able to organize the Dato Lee Aik Kheow Trophy in conjunction with CNY on 18/4/21, which was held at the Kinta Golf Club in Batu Gajah. It was well attended. Mr. Lim Ka Huat emerged as the Champion. This was followed with a SOP compliant dinner held on 24/4/21 at Flemington Hotel, Taiping. Participating golfers were treated to a sumptuous dinner with free flowing beer and whisky. For the first time the golf section could not carry out our usual main event of the year, the Golfers Nite, a much look forward event by golfers. It was called off due to the enforcement of the MCO and has been postponed to March 2022, subject to the MCO being lifted. The Golf Section is currently working on establishing a driving range close to the Club premises with the assistance of the District Office. We will endeavour to encourage ladies and youngsters to take up golf and become our section members. We will continue to organize outstation monthly medal games in the coming year subject to the lifting of the MCO and hope all golfers will participate and support the efforts. We are also very saddened by the sudden demise of our able and very reliable Sub-Committee member Mr. Benny Cheah Yal Beng in April 2021. We convey our heartfelt condolences to his family and MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE. We also want to put on record our appreciation and thanks to the President and the General Committee for their understanding and support and sincerely hope they will continue to do so in the future. We also like to record our appreciation and thanks to the Golf Sub-Committee members for their dedication and commitment in carrying out their entrusted duties. 9

Lastly, we look forward to better times in 2021/2022 and we will continue organising the golfing activities for the pleasure of all our section members.

We hope the situation would soon be over and for our members to return to their normal activities like before. DISCIPLINARY & MEMBERSHIP Mr. K.

Celine Wong - Committee Member Mdm. Janet Looi - Committee Member 12

Our Squash Section continues to be active with around 153 members in the Section, where 50 are junior members. Due to the pandemic situation, we were not encouraged to organize events that may create large groups hence, this has crippled our plans to organize several tournaments like before. However, in the month of April 2021, we managed to pull through an In-House tournament and held the prize-giving at our Karaoke room on 28th April 2021. Even though the response was not as encouraging, we are happy to have at least one event before the end of this fiscal year. We are happy to announce that currently we have two coaches available, due to the increased number of junior members in the Section. Both trainers have their respective coaching hours and offered different levels of playing skills. They can be reached at the numbers below; 1. Mr. R. Subramaniam @ 016-475 4011 2. Mr. Kong Kai Yuen @ 012-425 6693 Last but not least, we hope this pandemic would soon be over and allow our members to return to the courts and enjoy the fun and camaraderie. DARTS - Chairman - Darts Captain Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 - Secretary Dr. Mike Wong Hean Kwai, PMP, AMP, PJM - Committee Member Mr. Balasubramaniam - Committee Member Mr. N. Moganarajan - Committee Member Mr. B. Pubalechandran Mr. V. Jayaseelan Mr. Sunny Chee Leong San Due to the pandemic situation, our Section members has not been able to gather in big groups like before, likewise with the new SOPs in place, members are still trying to get used to the ‘new norms’ such as limiting the number of players in the Darts room, avoiding handshakes after each game and keeping a safe distance at all times. However, during the month of March 2021, we managed to organize one important tournament, Club Annual Championship for the Section members. It was held on 14th March 2021 with more than 20 members participating in the event. Our old timer, En. Fahmy Abdullah emerged as Champion of the Tournament, followed by Mr. V. Jayaseelan and Mr. P. Jayarajan as 1st and 2nd Runner-Up respectively. We take this opportunity to thank the General Committee, Sponsors, Club staff and all members for their continuous support towards the Section. AMUSEMENT MACHINES Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 Mr. Lim Sweet Chin - Chairman Mr. Barry Teoh - Coordinator In the earlier fiscal year, our Annexe Club was not allowed to operate due to implementation of Movement Control Order. The strict SOPs have slightly affected the patronization of our members and cancellations of monthly theme event. The Club has stopped organizing group trips to the outlet since then. 13

FOOD & BEVERAGE Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 Mr. Goh Chee Aik - Chairman Mr. Teh Beng Soon - Secretary Mr. N. Moganarajan - Committee Member Mr. Eddie Kuang - Committee Member As pointed out in our last fiscal report, we should expect a very poor fiscal year due to the covid-19 pandemic and the various Movement Control Orders beginning on March 18, 2020. Twelve months onward and the situation had actually worsened despite the vaccine rollout. At the moment of writing, our nation has gone into another lockdown under MCO 3.0. To get down to business (no irony intended), for fiscal year 2020-2021, Bar sales dropped 26.6% from RM616,596 to RM452,595 while Restaurant sales dived 43.5% from RM476,094 to RM269,002. The figures can only say so much. The truth is out there. Not to depress our readers further, let us dwell on something that we are now very familiar with although not exactly heartwarming. A gentle reminder to all our members that following the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) set by the Majlis Keselamatan Negara Malaysia (MKN), all members and their guests have to abide by the simple regulations such as registering their presence, be of normal temperature, sanitizing their hands and maintaining social distancing. The Chairman of the F&B section and his sub-committee will welcome the return of members and their guests in due course and seek your cooperation in observing Governmental requirements and regulations for your personal wellbeing and of your loved ones. In the meantime, please register for your vaccination and help our nation achieve the World Health Organisation’s recommended herd immunity to break the chain of infection and allow us to go back to some normalcy. Good luck and God bless. DIGITAL MEDIA & LIBRARY Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 Mr. Goh Chee Aik - Chairman Mr. Wong Ah Woh - Secretary Mr. Calvin Peh Kim Hock - Editor Mr. Chan Sooi Sam - Librarian Mdm. Suzanne McKinney - Coordinator Mdm. Sumithra Amalourde - Coordinator Mdm. Sharimala a/p Gunasargan - Website & Library Administrator It should be stated that the newsletter would be cancelled and thus the name Bulletin And Library should now be Digital Media And Library. Those members who are interested in the Club affairs should go to the library website i.e., to get further information about the happenings in the Club. Although many activities have been planned for members’ children, they have to be cancelled due to poor response. The activities planned were Water Colouring Contest, A Day Camp at the club premises for members’ children and Traditional Games for members’ children. The only activity that was carried out was the Children’s Crayon Colouring Contest which was held on 9th November 2019. Category A comprised of 11 children and category B, (which was for older children) comprised of 7 children. 14

Unfortunately, the emergence of the Pandemic, Covid 19, all activities had to be stopped. However, new books (8 books per month in total) were added to the Library Section except for March and April of 2021because of the MCO. The house rule says that a member, his spouse or their children can borrow a maximum of 4 books per family for a duration of 14 days, after which they can extend for another 14 days on request. GYMNASIUM Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 Dr. S. Gunaseelan, AMP - Chairman Secretary Mr. Patrick Morten - Committee Member Committee Member Mr. Robin Lim Chin Lake - Committee Member Mr. N. Moganarajan - Mr. Chong Jia Jien - The Gymnasium continues to operate with strict SOPs, limiting the number of users per allocated session. It has now become a normal routine for members to make reservations to use the facility. We also wish to thank the General Committee for their approval to replace the old treadmill even during this pandemic period. Let’s hope the situation in the country will further improve for our Club to return to normalcy soon, with everyone doing their part to break the chain of infection. Take care and stay safe! TOMBOLA Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 Mr. Goh Chee Aik - Chairman Mr. Wong Ah Woh - Secretary Ms. Ong Paik Yoong - Treasurer Mdm. Nyana Morrison - Coordinator/Public Relations Mdm. Sharimala a/p Gunasargan - Book Keeping/Checker Ms. Kumuthavalli a/p Thangaraju - Book Keeping/Checker Currently there are 59 tombola section members. The tombola sessions had to be called off because of the emergence of the pandemic Covid 19. Mr. Goh Chee Aik has called for the annual fees to be waived for the fiscal year 2021/2022. Now it is on everybody’s minds as to when the next tombola session is going to be held. Anyhow the current situation does not permit the sessions to be held soon. One point to be taken is Mdm. Nyana Morrison has resigned from the tombola sub-committee and also the tombola section. TAI CHI Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 Mr. Lim Sweet Chin - Chairman Mr. Lim Ka Chong - Secretary Mr. Chai Sang Ter - Treasurer Mdm. Ang Yan Tin - Committee Member Mdm.

Taiji practice was disrupted by the first Movement Control Order (MCO 1.0) which took effect from 18th March 2020 onwards. We only managed to resume on 6th July, 2020, following strict SOP guidelines until 22nd January 2021, before the next MCO 2.0 was implemented. This time our practice session was halted for a month. Unfortunately, the country has to face another spike of this pandemic from 22nd May 2021 onwards under MCO 3.0. Despite all the above disruptions, we still have members diligently attending our scheduled sessions to keep themselves fit. Last but not least, the Taiji Sub-Committee would like to thank and express it’s appreciation to the General Committee and staff for their support towards this Section thorough out the year. BILLIARDS - Chairman - Captain Sub-Committee Members 2020/2021 - Secretary Dr. Mike Wong Hean Kwai, PMP, AMP, PJM - Treasurer Mr. H’ng Gek Yeow - Committee Member Mr. Leong Sweet Han - Committee Member Mr. Ong Hong Hooi - Committee Member Mr. Chuah Ching Chin - Committee Member Mr. Leong Swee Cheat Mr. Yew Wen Jye Mr. Wong Yew Keong Billiard has been around in this Club for many years but it came to a halt when members lost interest of this game for other sports facilities. Until recently, several members had shown interest to revive the game and pleaded to the General Committee to help repair the table. Thanks to the General Committee, we now have an excellent table with all new Billiard equipment like table cushions, surface cloth, pocket nets, snooker balls, spider rest, chalks, cues and individual cue cabinets for members to rent. Nevertheless, we have setup a new Billiards Sub-Committee and made effort to meet up for a few games during weekends. Under the new Section Bye-laws, the Billiards room will be reserved for its Section members from 2:00pm to 8:00pm every Sunday. Children below the age of 18 years would not be permitted to use the facility unless permission is granted by the Sub-Committee. Members using the Billiards facilities are reminded to adhere to the ‘dress code’ rules after 8:00pm. Due to current pandemic situation, the Section is not able to organise any event for the members and hope it would improve for us to plan some activities in the coming year. 16
