A New Year

After sometime of hibernation from blogging, I think its time to start again. This year, Danish House has a list of activities lined-up. In fact, the promotional banners should be out after Chinese New Year but I will enclose a teaser here…

Green Prize

Last year, we received feedback from some of you on the high electricity charges encountered. Therefore, to encourage “team spirit” in energy saving for individual houses, we have come up with a Green Prize competition. This will be held from February to April’10…so, watch out for that space and start saving electricity to win prizes!

Basketball Tournament

Due to the overwhelming response in our previous Sports Carnival in October 2009, we will also be organizing some tournaments this year with the first one being Basketball Competition in collaboration with Maybank. Therefore, do drop by at our Customer Service Counter to register (for free) so that we can prepare for the Big Day! If you are interested to be part of the organizing committee, please sign up soon before the spaces are taken up!

Improved Van Service

We are in the midst of increasing and improving our van service. Soon, our free van service will not only bring you to the nearby shops but also to selected venues in the Old Town and Train Station. If there is a place that you would like to patronize in the Old Town, do let our Customer Service Staff know, so that they can start compiling the popular drop off & pick up points there.

Launching of Residents Committee

This year, we will be launching a residence committee, comprising of students who stay with us. Your roles will be to initiate and organize students’ activities in Westlake such as sports competitions, health talks and financial planning seminars. Danish House will be working alongside with a number of corporations to sponsor and provide the necessary infrastructure to ensure the success of each activity. If you are interested to be part of this “busy body” residents committee, please enquire at our Customer Service counter.

Change of Guards

We noted the poor performance of our security guards station at our guard houses over the past year. As we have signed a two-year contract with them, we were unable to terminate their service last year. However, after numerous negotiations, we are able to reach an agreement with them and they have agreed to terminate by this month. Therefore, there will be a new team of security guards manning the guard houses starting in mid-February 2010. We would like to thank you all for your patience and tolerance of the previous company. Hopefully, this new team could bring forth better services to the residents at Westlake Home.

Wow, with so many activities in the pipeline, I foresee that we will have a busy but fun 2010 year. Meantime, Danish House would like to wish all of you a blessed Chinese New Year. To all of you who are travelling, please drive safely.
