Happy Easter !
14 Rotarians and one visiting Rtn IPP Sammy Chung from RC Tettenhall UK joined Thurs meeting to hear the story of Tesla Electric Vehicle ( market described as iPad on 4-wheels) and its launch in Macau. Speaker Kenneth Lui , who was also charter member of RC Lan Kwai Fong, brought us down to their soon-to-open service center at Venetian carpark and introduced their model-S car. Everyone was excited and awed by the unique design and features of ‘ autopilot’, ‘ autoparking’ and, of course, its carbon-free driving . Kenneth shared with us that currently , out of the 90 million cars sold in a year, only 0.2 % is electric vehicle but market is projecting that within 20 years, 80% will be electric vehicles.
Along this line, I am happy to advise that District has just approved our ‘ Green Club’ status for this year again! Thanks to all of you who supported our eco-friendly actions !
Next Thursday Apr 31 meeting will be a social night . Thanks to PP Choi for finding us a new restaurant to have a fun western buffet fellowship dinner at Café AZURE, Crowne Plaza Hotel, The Residencia, Tower 7, Rua Da Perola Oriental. I think PP Stella has received sign-up from some of you, but please let her know soonest if you are free to join. Bring your families and friends too as understand the view from the restaurant is very beautiful. Complimentary parking is available in the hotel.
