PCF Eunos Teachers' Day Dinner 2009

9 September 2009

Blk 616 PAP Community Foundation (PCF) Eunos Kindergarten Centre Principal Regina Chia is the Organising Chairperson for this year's Teachers' Day Dinner. I felt very honoured to be the emcee for this special occasion.

After finishing school, I rushed back to do some final preparations and then met Regina, Mdm Tay and Hock Rong in the cab towards Hilton Hotel. It must have been ages since I toured Orchard. The "newly" built Ion Orchard is fascinating aesthetically.

The room that we were using happened to be called the Malaysia Room. Probably they wanted to make us feel comfortable knowing that we had travelled to another "country" without chopping our passports.

Organising Committee Adviser Mr Yahya Zakaria Attia, BBM delivered the opening address and announced for the dinner to commence.

Our Guest-of-Honour, Mr Zainul Abidin Rasheed, Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs & Chairman of PCF Eunos, surprised us when he strolled in the room without informing us. In his address, he shared some changes that would be in store for PCF teachers.

We played several games throughout the entire dinner session. First, we kicked off with a "Who Wants to be a PCF Eunos Expert?", a mini quiz session for everyone to learn more about PCF. The second game was a cheeky one for couples called the Exciting Grooving Game (EGG), a brainchild of PCF Eunos Secretary Mr Stephen Chia PBM. It involved the lady having to transport an egg from the collar of the man to the bottom of the trousers.

Next, we had "So You Think You Can Dance?". Each table nominated a pair of "volunteers" to participate without first knowing what is in store for them. The first pair to dance was Mr Zainul and Mr Yahya! Everyone had a good laugh seeing how both of them sportingly danced to the tune of the Korean hit song "Nobody". We finished the dinner with charades.

Tokens of appreciation were given to long service award recipients. Gifts were presented by the GOH to the teachers as well. Outgoing PCF Eunos Management Committee members were also appreciated.

Happy Teachers Day!
