Melissa, Organiser:

About a month ago I was asked to help with organizing a Bridging Activity. I was really excited, but because this was the first time I’ve ever organised anything for RBKD, I felt really pressured as well.

I was so stressed out because I wanted everyone to have a really good time, and I didn’t want anyone to get hurt or injured. Luckily I had a really nice mentor who listened to and subdued my worries.

So after planning and with quite a few hiccups along the way, it was finally D-DAY. The day of the Bowling Bridging Activity.

It was really fun. I love the playing method whereby it wasn’t the usual one person to a 10 frame game. We played, in all essence of the word, randomly. We took turns to throw once each and in the end it was more of having fun together as a team instead of gunning for an individual final score. It’s really difficult to explain (see! if you joined us you’d know! :p). I guess the best way to describe it is organized chaos. This really paved the way for natural interaction. We talked and laughed a lot. It was definitely not as awkward as I thought it might be. Props to whoever came up with this idea! I love that the Teamwork that RBKD is all about was brought out so clearly.

I enjoyed myself thoroughly and all the preparation work was well worth it!

Jaslin, Participant:

At first, it was a bit awkward as I did not know anyone from the group but Melissa started giving us sweets so it somehow made me feel that I was part of the group.

During the first game, we did not dare to participate but it got better as it went on. I felt welcomed by the members as they initiated conversations and were very supportive! Yan Ling was very enthusiastic and encouraging, making the activity fun and lively.

This is my first time joining such an activity, it was a meaningful event I would say, meeting people with the same interest. Hope to join more activities with RBKD and be part of it soon! Thanks for the effort of the organization committee!
