EastCoastLife Framed - PH

PhotoHunt theme : Framed


This framed article in my living room has always attracted the attention of visitors.

One of my cousins cut out the article, had it framed and presented it to me. My family and I were interviewed for a Mother's Day Special by a local newspaper last year.

Interview conducted at our optical shop

All 3 members in our family have taken a standardized, supervised IQ test organised by Mensa Singapore at different times and scored at the 98th percentile or higher, a requirement for membership.

Mensa is the largest and oldest high-IQ society in the world. Mensa's constitution lists three purposes: 1.  to identify and to foster human intelligence for the benefit of humanity;
2.  to encourage research into the nature, characteristics, and uses of intelligence;
3.  and to provide a stimulating intellectual and social environment for its members.

Mensa Singapore Admission Test is conducted regularly at the NUSS Suntec City Guild House.


Interested members of the public should register with Mensa Singapore for the test. Alternatively,you may email me for details. I'm the Marketing Director for Mensa Singapore.

  2. Wow, a family of intelligent people!
    More importantly, a family whose members have used their intelligence to serve humanity and the beings on Earth better. :)

    I am a bit uncertain whether to register for the Admission Test. What would the Marketing Director say? (Though I think I know the answers.)

    it's great that all your family members have achieved that magical 98th percentile score on the IQ test. it's even cool to be a part of one of the most exclusive organizations in the world.

  15. Long time no see. Welcome back to the Hunt! It's a long time since I was the subject of a news article.. mercifully it was not a "Have you seen this man?" one!

    I was a member of MENSA too. I didn't maintain my membership beyond a year though

  17. oceanskies,
    Most people are intelligent and they will easily pass the IQ test.

    To score at the 98th percentile or higher, a requirement for membership to Mensa, is also not difficult.

    I'm certain you have no problem. Take the challenge.

    Register for the test. I'll tutor you. :)

    Hello!

    Good to know when one has a high IQ so we are more confident of taking on tasks and create a stimulating intellectual environment for our younger generation.

  25. Hi Colin!
    Fewer people are having family photos framed and displayed in their homes or offices. They are all hidden in virtual albums.
