Night Safari staff upset over abrupt cancellation of Halloween event

Yahoo! Singapore News, 19 Sep 2011 The decision to cancel the popular Night Safari event “Halloween Horrors” had divided Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) staff. When new chief executive of WRS Isabella Loh cancelled the event last Tuesday -- two weeks before its launch on 30 September -- some of them tried to convince her that it would not make sense as close to $1 million had been spent on themed food supplies, retail items and decorations for it. Anonymous sources said that, initially, Loh, who replaced Fanny Lai as WRS chief in July, had wanted to cancel the event next year, and that it was unclear why the decision was made to can it this year instead. On top of the cancellation, some staff were also unhappy at the way Loh handled the issue and the comments she made over the past week.
