Hi! I wanted to write about the Japanese Games event I went for today. It was organised by the Japanese University Graduates Association of Singapore (JUGAS) and held at the Japanese Association 🙂 I signed up together with Janelle, RachTang and Weilin, but only Janelle was in my team! 大西先生 was also present at the event 🙂
Basically, we moved around in teams to play at the four game stations, each set up by one of the Japanese schools in Singapore.
This game was our first station and was organised by MOELC. I didn’t really understand the game at first and it was really more of a game of luck 😛 Our team lost this round by 30 points haha.
I didn’t manage to get a picture of the second game, but basically we had to form words using the Hiragana characters 🙂 Janelle and I liked this one because we learnt the words in our Year 1 MOELC syllabus 😀
This is part two of the third game we played 🙂 In part one we had to describe animals in Japanese to our teammates till they guessed it so that was tough for me. Part two was much easier! The facilitator read out a sentence and players had to identify the first word in the sentence and retrieve the placard before the other team.
This last game was the worst for me because they played soundtracks and we had to guess which J-pop band or Anime it was from, both of which I know absolutely nothing about. Even so, my team members knew quite a lot about them (but we still lost haha).
In the end, our team didn’t win 1st, 2nd or 3rd overall but it doesn’t really matter anyway 🙂
Here is a picture we took with 大西先生 at the end! (Notice the fancy paper bags.)
Haha these were the contents of the paper bag (not including all the brochures). So each participant got two cheesecakes and either a squid-cuttlefish-like-thing or red bean milk powder (I got the red bean milk). Haven’t eaten any of them yet but they should be pretty good since they were imported specially from JAPAN 😀
Shall post more tomorrow yay 🙂
