On 8th December 2008, 32 members of Island Taekwon-Do Centre (ITC) gathered at Quality Café for a buffet lunch.
The spread was sumptuous with much variety ranging from Indonesian cuisine to popular local delights like the chicken rice.
It was a perfect event for the members of ITC to get to know one another out of the dojang, as well as for ITC members from different training schedules to meet up.
The ITC members also got to catch up with Matthew, an ITC member who had recently returned from his studies in Adelaide for a vacation in Singapore.
I later found out that the Get Together was also a surprise farewell event for myself, who will be leaving for Melbourne in early February 2009 for my studies. Shaun, who’s also the organizer for this event, presented me with a nice brown ColdWear Jacket as well as a farewell card which all of the present ITC Members(as well as Mr. Martin) had chipped in for.
It is indeed heartening to know that I had forged many friendships during my stay in ITC. I would like to give thanks to Master Daniel Sng Sir, and all of the ITC members for including me in the ITC family.
I would also like to thank Master Daniel Sng Sir, Shaun and everyone else who have made this event possible, and a memorable one for myself.
