Hello Singapore Gooners,

Anyone experiencing cabin fever yet? I hope you and your families are well, safe and healthy. Latest news from UK is EPL football can only be resumed after 1st June. Let’s see if lives or money is more important to the decision makers, eh?

If you haven’t watched it yet, AFC released 2 new videos. I’ve watched them both and truly loved them.

Thierry Henry: https://www.facebook.com/Arsenal/videos/807903266404050/A

Dennis Bergkamp: https://www.facebook.com/Arsenal/videos/711318509678508/

Two quick updates for you.

1. Children’s Aid Society
As our members know, our adopted charity is Children’s Aid Society. During this challenging COVID-19 pandemic, they are facing a difficult financial year with donations on a significant decline. We hope to appeal to the generosity of our Arsenal Singapore community to donate if you can. The donations would greatly help them to tide through this trying period and signify support for their residents and families.

They are trying to raise $100,000 within the next 4 months. As of today, they have only raised $26K. With a donation of $10 & above, you’ll be entitled to a 250% tax deduction.

2. Closure of Modesto’s Restaurant
Modesto’s Elizabeth has closed down for good after 17 years. And this morning news came in by end June, Modesto’s Orchard outlet will also shut its doors for good after 23 years.

Here is the message from Ashok, owner of Modesto’s.

“If you have enjoyed our food and service through the years, please enjoy our offerings at least one more time for a good cause. Thank you very much”.

He also launched a mini-fundraising campaign, setting aside 40% of takeaway sales proceeds to help former employees who are in between jobs.

Please call 62357808 to place your orders. View the menu at www.modestos.com.sg

Modesto’s Orchard Rendezvous Hotel is located at 1 Tanglin Road #01-09 Singapore 247905. Food pick-up/takeaway is available at this location only.

I know some Gooners have already enjoyed their delicious food in the past 2 weeks. You guys are just awesome and generous!!
Give anything that you can for both causes above, Gooners.

Thank you and please stay safe.

Hello Singapore Gooners,

I hope you and your families are well, safe and healthy. Try to make the best of this long weekend and watch Arsenal Reloaded online too. No other footy update for this week but I’d like to share 2 other news with you.

1. Closure of Modesto’s – Elizabeth Hotel
Ashok, the owner of Modesto’s, informed me yesterday that he has closed down the restaurant at Eliz. As you know this was our First and Best home for Arsenal Singapore. Home is where the heart is and our hearts were there every weekend from 2004 to 2013.

I’ve posted this on our FB page as well: https://www.facebook.com/ArsenalSingapore/posts/2919524708085232
Please share your Arsenal memories there too. I’m sure everyone has fond memories of our glorious home.

Here is the message from Ashok.

“Thank you for support and patronage for all these years. We have taken the difficult decision to close down our branch at the Elizabeth Hotel with immediate effect, and consequently had to retrench many of our staff.

Instead of the discount that we are always extending to our friends and regulars, we are going to put a part of your purchases into a fund to help our retrenched staff, especially for the foreign workers who face very poor job prospects either here or when they go home.

A full 40% of your net spend will be set aside to a fund to help our ex-staff who are between jobs.

NB – if you have enjoyed our food and service through the years, we will admit that we may not be around much longer. So please enjoy our offerings at least one more time in May for a good cause. Thank you very much”.

Please call us at 62357808 to place your orders. Their menu can be found at www.modestos.com.sg

Modesto’s Orchard Rendezvous Hotel is located at 1 Tanglin Road #01-09 Singapore 247905. Food pick-up is available at this location only. Please support the retrenched staff and order for pickup at their Orchard location.

2. Children’s Aid Society
As our members know, our adopted charity is Children’s Aid Society. During this challenging COVID-19 pandemic, they are facing a difficult financial year with donations on a significant decline. We hope to appeal to the generosity of our Arsenal Singapore community to donate if you can. The donations would greatly help them to tide through this trying period and signify support for their residents and families.

Give anything that you can for the two causes above, Gooners. Thank you and stay safe.

Hello Singapore Gooners,

How’s everyone doing during this unusual period in Singapore? Can you still even remember those Arsenal songs we used to sing? Hang in there, Gooners.

Here’s your latest update for this week.

1. Our club President, Ian Lim, unfortunately has decided to step down and leave the Exco for personal reasons. We thank him for his contributions in the past 8 months. I will take over as interim President with immediate effect. During the next AGM in August, the club will vote for a new President.

2. As our members know, our adopted charity is Children’s Aid Society. During this challenging COVID-19 pandemic, they are facing a difficult financial year with donations on a significant decline. We hope to appeal to the generosity of our Arsenal Singapore community to donate if you can. The donations would greatly help them to tide through this trying period and signify support for their residents and families. With a donation of $10 & above, you’ll be entitled to a 250% tax deduction.

As this cause is very dear to my heart, I have already made my personal donation. Click on this link to help: https://bit.ly/cassolidarity

3. Finally, a huge thanks to the winner of our Jack Wilshere charity auction – Yisheng Ang. He donated $335 in total to Muscular Dystrophy Association (Singapore). You’re a Top Gooner, Yisheng! That’s him in the pic attached.

Please stay safe and wear your mask, Gooners! Talk to you again soon.
