SINGSOC X MASSOC BBQ 2018

Say hello to the glorious sunshine because spring is finally upon us! ☼

Post-Easter break may mean hitting the books for most of us but it’s a shame to stay indoors when you’ve got such a rare opportunity to bask in the warmth.

So, what better way to spend the day out than with an outdoor cooking session?

All smiles and laughter, the event proved to be a success as we were blessed with nothing but sunshine — save for the slight shower in the beginning (that some tried to ‘rain dance’ away).

This was certainly a great opportunity for fellow society members to get to know one another and bond through the love of barbecued grub and field games!

Till the next one. ☺

WELCOME DINNER 2016

YO FRIENDS! We present to you our first event of the new term, our Welcome Dinner!! This year is slightly different as we held it at a new location, Hui Wei restaurant!

Not only do we have a super wide filled dinner prepared for you guys (9 course by the way), we managed to include some games for everyone. We want everyone to bond with the people at the same table which is why we had a special dedicated seat for you! 🙂

The games included some general knowledge of Singapore & Sheffield and ending off with a PPAP challenge which was definitely one of the highlights for the night!

It was indeed fun for both freshers and members!

Thank you for coming down to this event as everyone (mainly for the freshers) has started settling down and get busy with Uni life, such event makes a great opportunity for everyone to mingle with all the Singaporeans once again! (when there is food, there will be Singaporeans :p)

Great poses you’ve got there my friends :p

It was definitely the time for all of us to take a break from school, as well as getting our Chinese food fixed. Well, food and happy tummies aside, we were definitely happy for the time given to catch up with the rest of the members, as well as take the opportunity to meet the seniors/freshers/new members. I say, it was definitely one of the best bonding time! Happy faces (:

CNY Dinner 2016

 

Happy Lunar New Year!

Being miles away from home (again) this year, we had a hearty reunion dinner with the Sheffield family at China Red.

Joined by two of our new friends on exchange from back home, we indulged in yusheng and of course, hotpot!

Everyone played a Chinese idiom game where they had to find the person who had the other half of their idiom as well as the person with the literal translation of it.

The game had everyone trying to decipher their idiom/literal translation before running around trying to find their partners.

In the end, the “losers” had to perform an impromptu lion dance in front of everyone!

Congrats to the lucky draw winners!


Thanks to everyone for making our first event of the year a successful one! 🙂

Notts Winter Games ’15

The struggle was real.

Meeting at 6:30am, that is.

The weather was cold and terribly rainy for most of the day (what’s new?) but we made it through!

This year, we sent in teams/players for football, captains ball, frisbee, badminton (singles & doubles) and for the first time, a netball team!

Winning wasn’t our priority but more importantly, having fun with our fellow Singapore Society members and Singaporean friends from other unis!

After all, as Mary Lou Retton once said, “A trophy carries dust. Memories last forever.” But I guess we get to keep both then 😉

For more photos of our teams/players in action, click here!

This year, we decided to do a little something for Guy Fawkes Day! Despite having to postpone the event once, we finally had it a week later at a ~secret location~.

It must have been the /warmest/ night of the autumnal season but there were more people joining us than I expected!

 

So glad the skies decided to hold up until we finished setting off all the fireworks! Thanks for joining us and we hope you had fun 🙂 More pictures here!

Cycling at the Peaks!

P1040384

Last Saturday, we headed out of Sheffield to the nearby Peak District for some riding fun with our members and their friends from other UK universities!

Despite the heavy rain, we cycled along the Upper Derwent Valley and even did a bit of hiking before stopping for a picnic lunch.

Amidst the beautiful scenery, we couldn’t help but stop for numerous photo shots along the way! More photos are on our Facebook page so go ahead and check that out.

Patriotism at its best 😉

Thanks for cycling and getting muddy with us! We couldn’t have had a successful event without you.

With love,

Sheffield Singapore Society 🙂
