On Aug 30th, 4 days after Chinese Traditional Valentine’s day, a singles’ party is hosted by ACSSS, at studio 5&6 lodge room.
This party is designed and organized by two ACSSS members, Peng and Ruo. 10 boys and 10 girls are randomly chosen to attend the party. At the beginning, each participant wears fancy masks on face so that the participants can not watch the appearances of each other. After some ice-break talk, there is a matching process. And later, more cooperation-based games are carried out, including a word-guess, a ear-to-ear translate a sentence, and eating water melons. After three matching process, finally three pairs are successfully matched and awarded fancy prizes.
The party is a great success and full of fun because of the organizers’ exceptional entertainment talents and careful preparation. Let us applaud for their ingenious creativity, and their great contributions of improving the life and social quality of Chinese students/scholars community!
