Hehehe happy Monday!!!
Ok Mondays are generally not awesome... but work wasn’t so intensive today, so all’s good. Find little joys in each day, heh.
Can you believe that I got this romper from Miss Selfridge 3 years ago 😂 got it on sale in UK back then. Don’t wear it very often but whenever I do, it just feels so flowy and ethereal hahaah.
Also, last night’s steamboat date happened!!! HAHAHA. Super happy.
Nomsssss. Homemade steamboat is really much cheaper! Can’t go to HDL - bringing the HDL back to me 😂 I think the soup base is like $3-4++.
Ok but the main point of today’s entry is to share about..
Party games and activities!!!
Aka ways to make housewarming / cny gatherings even more fun 😂😂😂
Did a poll on IG recently and gathered all these ideas... thought it’s quite timely since cny festive season is upon us again soon! And especially if you’re having different groups of relatives/friends over at once - things can get awkward. The last thing we want is to have everyone sit and stare at one another hahaha.
Please do a QC and Google to see if the games are suitable for your guests (age group / personality etc) ok!!
1) Card Games
Soooo many people recommended this!
Another successful Kickstarter product, this game is apparently “a strategic card game that will destroy your friendships... but in a good way”
Ohhhh loving it already 😈😂
How cute are the unicorns too?!
Saboeteur!’ There’s even expansion packs/Saboteur 2 now, I believe.
Used to play this in Uni so often...in hall especially 😂
This requires some patience to teach and for everyone to get the hang of it - but after that it’s good fun! Good for large groups too.
The Singaporean Dream
Gotta be proud of our roots and national identity all...
Hahaha. this would be a great cny game!! I can imagine middle-aged relatives getting tickled by it too.
Ok it’s mixed reviews for this - don’t be fooled by the ‘cute kitties’ haha but this one received many votes too!
Said cute kitties 😂
2) Console Games
Nintendo Switch is really the best. Next best would be the PS4!
Get overcooked 2 instead of the original!!! I find that the difficulty level for overcooked 2 is much more manageable (hence good for beginners too) and there’s the new function where you can ‘Throw’ food 😂
But really this is a great investment haah. Now all my friends just keep requesting to come over and play this.
For our housewarmings we split our guests into teams / let them split and in some cases those who didn’t know each other well became friends via teaming! Heh.
Super Mario Party
Please don’t buy this full price! Just get it off Carousell or something. Full price is $70-80 which isn’t really worth it imho.
Nonetheless this is a good game to keep you occupied for awhile... or if you need a break from Overcooked 😆
These has various mini games in it. Some of them are like Bishi-bashi arcade style. Those are the best parts of this Super Mario Party.
Another classic - this is an all-round fun game good for all ages and friendly for beginner-gamers 😁
WHAT IS A PARTY WITHOUT FOOD? Gonna share some fave caterers/food here
a) Melvados - for cakes/brownies etc perfect for sharing and it’s halal too!! So all your guests can enjoy it :D
b) On&On Diners #onandon i think the owner is a dayrean too! Food quality is always consistent and good!! :)
c) Rich and Good Cake Shop
Business is brisk! Sometimes the queues can be erratically long or there’s none at all. Hidden away in the Arab Street area. Pop by one of the nearby yoga studios for the class before you indulge in one of these cakes! So damn good. :p
Here’s their pricelist from their Facebook, dated 2017.
One box of the roll/cake can feed 3 people easily... it’s really addictive ahah.
It’s past dinnertime now.. if I post the pics of the Swiss rolls you’ll be tempted :p
d) Grain Catering
This is the bomb.
Their setup is instaworthy😂 and the food is really delicious. Everytime they cater for our work events, our day is made. Haha.
It’s also supposedly more healthy and sustainable! The serving plates are small, I believe it is intentional to ensure that you don’t overeat. But it’s so yummy...I always go for seconds 😆
Pic from Grain.
Their customer service is great too!!! I highly recommend this caterer to wow your guests and yourself 😌
e) Popiah Party at..home?!
Photo from Fortune Food!
Just Google them. One of the more well priced popiah party sets!
This would be great for big groups - everyone gets to make their own popiah 🤗🤗
Memorable and yummy activity, why not? 😌
Anddd that’s all for the post! ✨ Hopefully it’s useful! Recording all these lists down is useful for me too because sometimes I forget certain things.. and I do scroll back on my Dayre to check! Benefits of journaling regularly. Anyone else does this too? 😅
Happy hosting! ⭐️
