Mensa Singapore 1st Quarterly Lunch - WS

Lunch with fellow Mensans

Christopher and I got to catch up with fellow Mensans at our 1st Quarterly Mensa Singapore Lunch at NYDC cafe and restaurant, Bugic Junction branch.

At this event, we welcome new members to the society and hope they will mingle with existing members. Members are encouraged to bring their family or friends.

Our two adorable Junior Mensans

The owner of NYDC is a Mensa member, so we got a good deal. :D

Diners can choose from 3 main dishes. One of the main dishes was its Mushroom Madness Pizza. Named “Best Pizza in Singapore” by a local paper, it came with lots of fresh mushrooms, garlic sauce and mozzarella.

famous Ally’s New York Cheesecake

Dessert was another famous item on its menu, Ally's New York Cheesecake. yum yum...

We will be having our Monthly Boardgame Meet next Sunday. :)

Our 20th Anniversary Gala Dinner will be held on 5th June. We hope to raise funds for the meal coupons, transport allowance and school uniform of NorthLight School's needy students.

The students have put up some of their art pieces for sale.


Mensa Singapore conducts the Mensa Singapore Admissions Test for persons aged 14 and above. The MSAT is interesting and challenging as it involves only symbols and pictorial representations, and does not require knowledge of any particular language or mathematics. It costs S$55 per person.

Register for the Mensa Singapore Admissions Test to be held on Saturday, 20 June 2009 at Suntec City NUSS Guild House.

  10. I was a MENSA member for some years back in the 90s. Still remember being whacked at board games during meetups with kids half my age. :-p

    Glad to see it's still going strong.

    You have some nice blogs going, ECL. I really enjoy browsing through them, be it the brush-ins with the authorities or the sights and sounds around this island we call home.

    I'm gonna try the mushroom pizza next week. :-)

    May the coming better the going.

  23. Hi Paperman,
    In the 90s, there were many active members in Mensa Singapore. My hubby and I attended many Mensa events. I met many Mensans and made many friends.

    Now I wonder where are they. Some have emigrated.

    I hope you would come back to join us in our activities.

    The older Mensans still get whacked by kids half or even one-third our age at the board games! haha....

    We need reinforcements. hahaha....

    Thanks for your kind comments. Hope to meet you at one of our Mensa functions.

    Mensa Singapore is working with NorthLight School to raise funds for its needy students. We hope to bring in some money at our gala dinner. The project needs the support of the community.

  26. tigerfish,
    You, normal being? Your IQ is probably higher than me!

    The only way to join Mensa Singapore is to take the Mensa Test. :P

    You can lah!

  27. Lina,
    I think I should put up the Mushroom Pizza. :)

    I was afraid it would slow down the page load.

    ReplyDelete
  28. heidi,
    Oh, come on! I'm sure your IQ would be higher than mine.

    We welcome non-Mensans at our events too. They are guests of our members.

  29. Hi The Explorer,
    Thanks for stopping by.

    The art is by students of NorthLight School. They have talent, don't they?

  30. Ebie,
    Every family gathering is precious to me as the elders are getting on in age.

    Making more friends is a bonus. With my kid all grown up, I need to have more friends to plan for my retirement years. :P

  38. Hi Race,
    I have been busy the past few years and have missed lots of gatherings. It's always nice to see people whom I have not met for a long time and meeting new members.

    The cheesecake is popular at NYDC.

    Applicants for the post of Air stewardess need to sit for an IQ test? I pass liao! haha....

    Wah! So many readers are attracted to the cheesecake, don't blame me if you put on weight. :D

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hey! you haven't got back to me about my question haha XD

    I asked whether there is anyway I can practise for the MENSA test?

    Do you know about International High IQ Society?
    I actually took their online test and I was qualified to join their society - meaning top 5%. I don't know how reliable the test is, it's the first time I see an "official" IQ test that is taken online. :/

    Cheers!
