This event was a Southeast Asian collaboration between MSO, SSA (Singapore Students’ Association), VSA (Vietnamese Students’ Association), and ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), which aimed to provide members a platform to relax while getting to know various people from different cultures. With a great turn-out rate, the bar was filled with endless chatter and laughter. Different types of finger food were served at each table, encouraging attendees to move around and engage in conversations with people they might not have been familiar with. Throughout the night, there were also two trivia sessions; the questions of which were centered around different countries in Southeast Asia. Attendees separated themselves into groups of 5 to compete, and the friendly competition was further boosted when attendees were informed there was prize at stake – one jug of beer for the winning group of each session. Although there were some technical difficulties during the trivia sessions, the attendees were very cooperative and participated enthusiastically. It was particularly heartwarming to see members of various cultures coming together to relate to the similarities and share about the differences between their countries. Overall, despite some hiccups along the way, a lively atmosphere was maintained throughout the night, signifying a successful event.
