Foon Ying (Welcome) and Kung Hei Fat Choi (Happy New Year)!

We are delighted to extend a warm invitation to all new and existing members to attend our upcoming Foon Ying event. Foon Ying which translates to “welcome” in Cantonese, is a three-day event spread over three weeks that is designed to provide a general introduction to living in Hong Kong while fostering a sense of friendship & community. Whether you have recently relocated or have been here for some time, Foon Ying promises to be an enriching experience that will help you navigate the nuances of this vibrant city. 

During the event, you can expect: 

Day 1. Informative Session: Gain insights into various aspects of life in Hong Kong, including cultural etiquette, navigating transportation, healthcare, and shopping.

Day 2 & 3. Exploring our City: Connect with like-minded women from different backgrounds and cultures. Foon Ying is an excellent platform to expand your social circle, forge new friendships, and find support within our diverse community while exploring areas of Hong Kong you might not have ventured to - yet. 

We look forward to your participation and warmly welcome you to join us for Foon Ying. Should you have any questions or need further information, please contact our event coordinator, Jennifer Kabana @ 6014 0537
