Mid-Autumn festival is a traditional event where we aim to to gather with our families and loved ones. But this year, given we were away from home, struggling with our Nanyang MBA assignments – we took the chance to celebrate with our cohort through a night of moon cakes and some drinks. The planning team aimed to purchase the tastiest moon cakes possible, given the price budget and subsequently Created coupons to make sure everyone would be able to consumer four drinks.

That night will forever be etched in my memory with the moon being covered by clouds but everyone’s shining smile more than making up for it. There were mooncakes, lanterns, sparkle sticks with a special appearance made by a student guitarist who serenaded us with his lovely songs – joined ceremoniously by all our classmates.

As an intensive week has just come to a close and with another just around the corner, we thoroughly enjoyed the time together and indulged ourselves in food, friendship and the overall atmosphere. Although there was a rather short preparation time for the event, we were taken aback by how eager our classmates were to help. Thanks to them, the preparation and execution of the event went along untroubled and effortless. It was truly lovely chapter of trimester 1 and we cannot wait to prepare another unforgettable event for our friends.
