Former bank staff recall old times

ABOUT 220 former employees of United Asian Bank gathered for the 10th UAB Fellowship Dinner at the Royal Lake Club in Kuala Lumpur.

Organising chairman V. Ganesan said the number of ex-staff attending these events increased every year.

“Last year, we had about 150 but this year, there were people from Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Alor Setar, Johor Baru, Seremban, Melaka, Singapore and Sweden,” he said.

Some of the guests included former Malaysian hockey captain Datuk N. Sri Shanmuganathan and former Malaysian footballers who worked with the bank.

Ganesan said he still had good memories of his working days and was happy to see such a big gathering.

Guests reminisced with their ex-colleagues, some of whom they had not met for many years.

Ganesan said the highlight of this year’s event was the launch of the UAB coffee-table book titled The Journey with pictures and narrative reflection of nostalgic memories from the time of United Asian Bank’s inauguration in 1973 until its merger with Bank of Commerce Bhd in 1991.

The theme of the event was Caribbean.

Donations were also made to three homes – Stepping Stones Living Centre Sdn Bhd, Pusat Kebajikan Anak Anak Yatim & Tahfiz Al Habbah and Siva Sakthi Samaj.

Ganesan said this was the third year that they had donated to charities.
