Mid-Autumn Festival at HomeTeamNS was filled with delectable mooncakes and colourful lanterns. As the traditional festival is also known as the “Reunion Festival”, HomeTeamNS members and guests were treated to a mix of fun online and onsite bonding activities.
RELEASE A SKY LANTERN AT HOMETEAMNS KHATIB
For the first time at HomeTeamNS, families gathered to release sky lanterns during the Mid-Autumn Festival. Some 50 participants had a blast crafting and lighting their own lanterns before taking part in a Digital Scavenger Hunt at HomeTeamNS Khatib Clubhouse.
With lanterns in hand, participants ventured through the Clubhouse – visiting Fitness Workz Premium, Mancaves and T-Play – while competing in different challenges. They scanned QR codes placed around the Clubhouse to download questions and receive helpful hints. Challenges included taking a family wefie at the Identity Corridor and Headgear display at the lobby. A total of S$300 worth of food hampers and Do-It-Yourself (D-I-Y) Minion Snowskin Mooncake kits were up for grabs.
The evening ended on an enchanting note, with families writing their wishes on their lanterns and witnessing the release of a sky lantern at the clubhouse’s roof garden.
“My children and family had a very good time. The event was very well planned and very safe for kids,” shared participant Michel Lam.
HEALTHY MOONCAKES GIVEAWAY AT HOMETEAMNS-JOM FACEBOOK PAGE
In partnership with Chocoelf, an award-winning chocolate brand established in Singapore, HomeTeamNS-JOM organised two contests for members that garnered a total of 132 entries.
Four winners brought home S$288 worth of Sugar-Free Snowskin Mooncakes. The giveaway boxes each contained some of Chocoelf’s best-selling flavours, such as Pure Lotus, Intense Dark Nibs, Osmanthus Green Tea and Strawberry Chia Seeds.
“I find this contest engaging; it reminds me of my younger days when I was told of the story of Chang Er. The prize was awesome too and I like the taste of the mooncakes,” shared HomeTeamNS member, James Goh Ming Sia.
KIDS COLOURING FOR MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL AT HOMETEAMNS BUKIT BATOK
Some 100 children showcased their artistic skills at HomeTeamNS Bukit Batok‘s Colouring contest. Held on-site at the Clubhouse over the course of a week, the young talents coloured various designs like images of mooncakes and lanterns.
Participants with the highest number of votes for their uploaded artworks on the Clubhouse’s Facebook Page stood to win attractive prizes. The winner received a HomeTeamNS Bukit Batok goodie bag, which included a Sketchers bag, shoe bag, tumbler and portable charger.
LANTERN PAINTING COMPETITION AT T-PLAY KHATIB AND BUKIT BATOK
Over at T-Play at HomeTeamNS Bukit Batok and HomeTeamNS Khatib, Junior HomeTeamNS members and their families bonded over a Lantern Painting Competition. The competition attracted 50 participants, who showed off their creativity while learning about the Mid-Autumn Festival with their parents and siblings.
Their works of art were posted on HomeTeamNS T-Play’s Facebook Page. Three winners were picked from each T-Play facility and they each received a Premium Art Pack consisting of home craft activity booklets, The Intan’s Peranakan tiles, T-Play stickers, and other art paraphernalia.
