We kicked off the UTASxYLL AMSEP, with Plant Sunday. What better way to bond then spend a day appreciating some beautiful plants? We had a lovely afternoon “plant appreciating” at Gardens by the Bay, (although honestly, we didn’t know much about the plants). We then proceeded for local fare at Lau Pa Sat, where we stuffed ourselves silly with Hokkien Mee, Satay, Carrot Cake and all the goodness Singaporean cuisine has to offer.
It really is a true privilege and great blessing to be part of this exchange. It is simply amazing how one can meet a complete stranger from the other side of the globe, share life stories, fall into deep lengthy conversations and forge friendships, all within a day.
“Day 1 was really fun!! We went to Gardens by the Bay and it was an extremely enlightening experience that was made by the fostering of good friendships and good food ;) Thanks for hosting us UTAS students in Singapore!” – Urna Rahman, Year 1 Medical Student, UTAS.
Overall, it was a good day of plants, incredible food and lovely table conversations.
