Mensa Singapore Monthly Board Games - WS

Junior Mensans and their parents

As my kids have finished their mid-year exams, I brought them to Mensa Singapore's monthly board games event. We made some new friends and had 4 hours of fun and laughter.

Great turnout ...... Full House!

There was a huge turnout this time. No worries. With over 100 fun board games and many players to choose from, everyone had a good time.


Be prepared to be thrashed by youngsters half your age though. haha.....

************** ooooo OOO ooooo **************

National Family Celebrations '09, an annual national campaign to celebrate the importance of the family, runs from 30th May to 28 June 2009. Singaporeans are encouraged to take time off their busy schedules to enjoy a day out with their familes.

  10. Kero,
    I'm glad that more members are participating in our activities.

    Parents in Singapore are spending too much time on their work, the campaign is to encourage them to spend more time with their family.

  16. Singaporeans should make it a habit to take time off everyday lah! ;p

    P.S Hey, I was just nearby, so just popped by your shop lah. It's ok. At least, I entered the trading shop near yours, that sells a lot of cake tools and moulds and realized it is so expensive!!!!
