SAMA 15th Annual Party & SBT11 Awards

#mitsamasg  |  2016.12.03

SAMA 15th Annual Party

The Association of Mapua Alumni, Singapore (SAMA) held it’s 15th Annual Gathering and SAMA Bowling Tournament Season 11 Awards Night last 3rd December at Jag Wine LLP located along East Coast Road. We were joined by our SAMA members, Mapua alumni, their families and friends. The party was co-hosted by our own Ms. Joy and Ms. Rochelle.

Team team responsible for receiving our guests were at the front door to give out sweets and raffle coupons for a fun raffle draw later in the evening.

We started off our event with the buffet dinner! Everyone was excited with the buffet lined up for tonight. The food was prepared and served by the excellent cooks of Jag Wine. We had big servings of spaghetti bolognese (not too sour, not too sweet… just right), crispy pork belly (marinated overnight in their mixture of sauces and spices with a dash of wine), barbequed chicken (hot and just enough spice to tingle every bite), mixed vegetables with quail eggs (special mention of the quail eggs as this concoction reminded me of the chop suey that we normally cook at home…), and fried rice (buttered and sprinkled with veggie bits). The dessert was dark chocolate brownies (uhmmmm it was the first dish that was wiped out in the buffet line). The buffet trays were kept filled with sumptuous food all throughout the evening.

The guests were also given an option to order free-flow of the wine bar’s house wine (red or white) and for the ladies, if they prefer, was a bottle or two of moscato wine courtesy of Ms. Bang.

After we got our fill of dinner, the program started with a 5 minute (more or less) look back at the 15 years since SAMA started in Singapore. Prepared and presented by our President, Mr. Edwin and a short welcome to everybody in the event.

We then welcomed our special guest from the Philippine Embassy, Consul Mers Mellejor, who gave us an inspiring talk and shared the latest new from both our homes, the Philippines and Singapore.
