The very first Singles Night edition of Thirsty Thursdays on 6 December 2018 saw an overwhelming response from alumni. Rocku Yakiniku was packed to capacity with 110 alumni eager to meet new friends, and have an evening of fun over drinks, food and an open mic session.
Organised by NUS Alumni Relations and supported by Spark Connections, this special edition was dedicated to young alumni looking for someone special. The evening included a speed-dating segment with the ladies sitting at one row of the table and the gentlemen sitting at the opposite row. Every five minutes, the gentlemen moved a seat to their right so that everyone changed their partner at regular, short intervals.
Alumni Relations Executive from Faculty of Science Ms Lim Jia Jia (Science ’14) and her husband Mr Lin Xin (Engineering ’14) attended the event, and candidly shared their love story, and how he proposed with a giant-sized ‘Snorlax’ plushy. Chairperson of NUS Campus Couples Alumni Ms Sarah Ong (Nursing ’12) also encouraged alumni to join the Group if they do meet their special someone who is a fellow alumnus.
