Italian Nite @ Cova
Paragon Shopping Centre, Unit #01-20A

It has been some time since you have last heard from us. Your committee reckoned that with the recent festivities, majority of our members would have attended more than their fair share of lunches and dinners and therefore, would appreciate a rest for the poor stomachs. As such, no events have been planned in February 2009.

However, we believe that it is time to rekindle the fellowship that we hold so dear to our hearts and therefore, allow us to kick off this year with a modest Italian event, which we intend to keep it small.

For this event, we will be featuring a relatively new kid on the block, a small restaurant called COVA Pasticceria Confetteria, located on the ground floor at the back of Paragon Shopping Centre. The antique Cova Pastisserie, was founded in 1817 by Antonio Cova, a soldier in Napoleon’s army, and situated in front of the Scala theatre in Milan. It soon became a meeting place where the most famous artists, writers and musicians used to meet after theatre to talk about performances and plays, or simply to discuss about history and politics, drinking a cup of coffee and tasting delicious pastries.

In 1943, during the Second World War, Cova was bombed together with the Scala theatre. Two years later, Cova was re-built and in 1950 it moved to Via Montenapoleone, where it is now. Located in the beating heart of the historical centre, in a city of fashion and business, Cova has always been a milestone, a meeting place not only for Milanese, but also for international clients. In the last 10 years, Cova has expanded its brand name and tradition throughout different countries and cultures and landed in Asia. In 1993, Cova opened in Hong Kong a nice Café and several boutiques and quickly captured the most refined palates with all its traditional sweets and a wide choice of elegant products. For some years now, Cova has taken the sea aboard “Celebrity Cruises” ships, sailing the tropical seas of the Caribbean, Mexico, South America up to the Far North, among Alaskan iced mountains, to sweeten and cherish their passengers’ moments and become one of their most pleasant souvenirs.

In June 2008, Cova arrived in Singapore and the Society proudly
