EDITOR’S NOTE It is only through tears, stress, sleepless nights, sacrifices, and learning though — Popular Malaysia’s Norzuriena Binti Merawi, “The POPULAR Heartbeat” winner Dear POPULAR family members, As the world continues to open up, many events have made a comeback in 2022, including the Hong Kong Book Fair. The impact of the persisting pandemic continues to be felt, with the drastic drop in visiting students as their summer holiday was brought forward this year. However, Popular Hong Kong managed to perform even better than in the year before. Read all about Popular Hong Kong’s achievements in this issue’s special features, beginning with a note of appreciation from Mr Ponch Poon, POPULAR’s CEO of Greater China and Canada (p.4). We then travel to Malaysia, with Popular Malaysia picking up from where they had left off after the pandemic struck, continuing POPULAR’s expansion and reaching more people. We join Popular Malaysia as they go about setting up their latest outlets in three of Malaysia’s premier shopping malls in Sarawak, Kuala Lumpur, and Penang (p.12). Just like POPULAR’s corporate logo, people have always been at the centre of everything we do. This does not just refer to our customers, but every POPULAR staff as well. Teamwork is the glue that binds our staff from all over the world together, and is the theme of this issue of Popular News. In the bumper stories of “Popular Personality”, we learn about how Popular Beijing’s General Manager Han Liang took on the challenges of the pandemic shortly after joining POPULAR, and how he rallied his team along the way (p.18). We then return to Malaysia and go on a ride with Popular Malaysia’s dispatch assistant Shahrizal Bin Muhammad, as he goes about keeping his team’s daily operations running smoothly by making sure that all documents and correspondence are delivered swiftly (p.20). Later, we join the two “The POPULAR Heartbeat” winners as they share their joy and appreciation of working in POPULAR. As 2022 comes to a close, here’s wishing the new year will bring more fulfilment and wonderful experiences to all POPULAR staff!
