November Event 2018: Momijigari

2018 Events
Salutations, fellow Singaporeans~ It has been getting colder recently so please keep warm to avoid catching a cold!   Earlier this month, we held a mini Momijigari at Shiodome's beautiful Hamarikyu gardens to celebrate the arrival of autumn, as well as that of new Singaporean students who enrolled this fall semester~ It was a chilly day but we kept ourselves warm by filling our bellies with lots of yummy hot food. We also went for a kushikatsu tabehoudai afterwards! The deep-fried castella cake with maple syrup was unexpectedly delicious and a hit with everyone.                                    Thank you to everyone who came down to Momijigari, and we hope to see you at our next event!

February Event 2018: CNY Hotpot Dinner

2018 Events
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!          …
