Well, as many of you may know, this is my last semester on exchange in the University of Melbourne. I was very fortunate to be able to be a part of 2009's production, Maelstrom.
I made many new friends doing that, I am sure that Flare will bring joy to its new members as it did to me.

Sadly, I won't be able to be part of Flare this semester (Even as I type, I have 5 pile of A4 papers lined up on my desk).

Nonetheless, the partay in the park was great! It was an afternoon welcome session for all the new members and for the other members to have some fun. The 60 odd people were divided into four groups and were tasked to do some silly things.


When I arrived at University Square, there was this bunch of people doing a serious group hug!
Anyway, when I got there, the groups were tasked with doing funny things like make a human bicycle...

The handle bar..
You can be the pedals...
You know what, bicycles have very uncomfortable seats, not this one!
Head lamps, just in case it gets dark...
Watch the competition on iPhone!

After that, round 2 was a plane competition! The goal was to crash into the other plane and who remained intact wins!

This mini jumbo jet with cock pit and pilot!
This Boeing comes with cushion seats and bow maiden! 8 horse power engines are free too. See the video planes crashing into each other!
