I think I was in a lucky team "E" who won the first prize of the group game!
We were the first team finishing the stacking cups games. 10 of us, Gene Tan from NLB, Dianne, Esther and from NTU, Mustafa from TP, etc are quite fast in completing the task, even though most of us play the game first time last night.
For the guessing game that is for individual, Rajen from SMU library who was partnering with me, was quite fast in geting the answer right! The Tag "Wonder Woman" was pasted at the back of his shirt, and he can only ask question with lead to Yes and No answer.
He is logical, and with some clues here and there, he have the right answer within 15 question. Maybe both of us were reference librarians in our library roles before, we have references linked together, hence, he was able to connect and come out with the answer before the other half of the participants!
What I like best is the gift exchange programme.
We were asked to form a big circle, and have our left hand hold on to our own present, and the right hand empty.
When the music start, we passed our own present to our neighbours at our left end and received new present from the one on our right. We are so engrossed in our present passing game, and did not notice the music had stop. Hence, some who were quick enough may had no present in both hands, those who are slow, will hold on to two presents in both hands.
We have the passing game play with two round of music, and those who are holding onto one present will get the present in their hand and allowed to sit down.
Those who are holding on to two presents or without any present were asked to re-do the game till all of them are able to get one present.
I like the efficiency of present exchange this way:
* All the gift are passed through your hands and you get to touch and feel the individual gift personally!
* Whether you like the gift or not, you have no time to think and hold on to it until the music stop.
* Save a lot of time tagging the present, calling names, collection items. The logistic is great!
As all the game and eating was done so efficiently, we have the event and party ended around 8.30pm, half an hour before the scheduled time!
I still like to have some more fun, yet all the participants were rushing home... So, I just have to leave with them and feel a bit "half full" in my joyful mood of NEW Year Party!
Maybe, Friday night is a bit too long for most librarians who started the day early in the morning. Maybe, if we have it on a non working day, we will have more time and in better mood to make the programme last longer!
