Monash Business Club's (MBC) Networking Party was held on August 4, 2006. **The author was a participant in this event.
Was it an event to remember? Well of course at least for this semester's theme - 'Flower Power'. The event began at around 7.00pm with the usual registration of participants. Guess what? All participants had to show something with flowers - attire or any belongings with flowers/flowery pattern on it.
Before dinner was served, we had an ice-breaker game. Cannot really remember how the game started, but my friend, Hiresh Tan was somewhat the most sporting guy on stage. He helped another friend of mine to finish a can of Coke in less than 30 seconds? Maybe not. By the way, just two days ago another senior managed to finish 3 cans (uncarbonated drink) in a record breaking time of 21 seconds in front of Red.FM deejays at Monash. >>Can you believe it?

Bill Them All
Back to the story. During dinner, MBC's business clubbers had a chance to mingle around with old and new members alike. We continued with a classic ice-breaker right after our pleasant meal. We were divided into groups, mine was called the "Swift", named after the sporty Suzuki compact car.
We encountered a 15-minutes delay in the first game, not too sure what actually happened though. Still, we waited patiently and listened intently to the game organizers. Finally, the game started and we had to guess the actions presented by the organizers. The actions may come from famous movies, music videos or simply referring to a proverb or phrase. To cut short, my group finished second and it looks like we're going to be the overall champion!
Two Blind Mice
Well, the second game was about blind-folding. Two representatives from each group were blind-folded. The fist rep had to walk from one end to another and choose his/her partner sitting at the other end, and bring his/her partner back to the first rep's starting point. The first group to have two reps at the starting point wins. Thinking that it was an easy task? The organizers put barriers along the path, imagine someone blind-folded and had to overcome these barriers.
Next was a skit presentation. We had to play a scene based on the selected movie. Astonishingly my group had chosen a movie called "Broketanic". What movie is that? It is a combination of Brokeback Mountain and Titanic. Gosh...all group members had to perform some acts that depict romance and homosexuality between the same sexes, not just between males onboard the sinking ship Titanic.
In the end, my goup was proclaimed the overall champion. MBC President, Sher Leen handed out hampers to the winners (in fact every group got one, but in different sizes). We all mellowed down and rejoiced as we unwrapped our prizes.
And that was the meaningful end to the night's festivities.
