With the generous sponsorship of JUGAS and Prima Taste, SSAJ hosted a Chinese New Year Hotpot event where we had laksa as our soup base! It was a delightful time of networking and sharing stories as we savoured the nostalgic taste of laksa and experienced the warmth of gathering around the dinner table during the festive season. There were even pineapple tarts and other CNY goodies! Everyone was also pleasantly surprised by the event venue, which was roomy with a well-equipped kitchen that will make you feel like a Masterchef (thank you Shu for finding the place). Can't wait for the next gathering with good food (as Singaporeans often are) and a big thank you to JUGAS and Prima Taste for making this event possible! …
On the 25th November, SSAJ held a Momiji-gari (Autumn leaves viewing) at a nice quaint spot in Hanno, Saitama. The place was inspired by popular fictional character, Moomin, and it sure did warm our hearts for the limited time we were there. From picnicking amongst the families and locals here with their really adorable dogs, to exploring the really intricate architecture inspired by the well-loved Moomin series, time sure passed in a blink of an eye. Thanks to those who came down! Here’s to the success of our next event!
A big thank you to DISCO for their informative seminar on job hunting in Japan! Our members were able to gain insights on the job hunting system in Japan that will no doubt aid them in their own job hunting process. For those who missed this session, be sure to keep a look out for any subsequent seminars!
Some members of the SSAJ participated in the 2017 ASEAN Cultural Festival, an annual event put up by the different ASEAN student organisations in Japan. This year we sold Kaya toasts to guests who visited, and put up a performance, which was a wonderful rendition of the NDP song ‘Home’. Getting to interact with students from the other ASEAN countries was also an added bonus!
Don't Merlion Party Part 4 was a good time spent catching up with fellow Singaporeans as we ate Okonomiyaki and Monjyayaki. Everyone had fun cooking up their own okonomiyaki/monjyayaki and some interesting designs were made! Thank you to everyone who attended and we look forward to next year's Don't Merlion Party!
