hello everyone, this is pertaining to the chalet. PLEASE READ THIS AS THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
as you all know (hopefully), the price each person has to pay for the chalet has increased to 18$ per person from 15$. this is because Aranda does not allow us to consult public catering, and instead, they provide their own catering services, which is, of course, more expensive. we do not really have a choice because if we are caught with public catering, we will be fined 300$. so that's why we have decided to go for Aranda's catering for the first day of the chalet only, and this is due to several reasons:
1. Main comms of respective schools have leadership training camp and will only be able to come on the first day of the chalet. 2. on the second day, it has come to our attention that several people will be going clubbing, so it will be useless to have catering when so many people will be gone when they have paid for the catering.
also, the reason why we chose not to have a barbeque is because of the problems we have faced during our Rinku GL chalet, where there was insufficient and expensive food and we do not want to face this problem again, so please understand our decision. also, there were some conflicts during the barbeque, as it is very difficult to appease so many hungry people when only a few who wish to volunteer to cook, plus, there's only one BBQ pit.
that said, we shall go into more details about the chalet and it's cost. the chalet itself costs $513.60, because it is during peak period. besides this, the catering costs 516$, which amounts to approximately 1030$. first and foremost, you guys should really be grateful and thank dolyce for coming up with the cost of everything all by herself, as we do not think that anyone would be willing to come up with such a big amount first. with that said, some of you have not made things easy by: asking if you can pay less if you do not eat the catered food/do not stay in the chalet. confirmed that you're coming and cancel in the end. keep nagging for BBQ.
if you actually think about it, just by paying ONLY 3$ extra, you are confirmed being fed for the first night of the chalet, which is cheaper than eating out. we know some of you really have plans that clash with the chalet that you cannot cancel, but since you have confirmed your presence in the chalet at an earlier date, we think it's only right you pay the same amount as the rest, because if you don't, dolyce will be the one covering the cost for you. for this, we will give leeway here and there AFTER the chalet (after discussion between the organisers).
c'mon guys we really need your cooperation in this, as we are working very hard to make this chalet as fun as possible for you guys. please spread the word about this post to other Rinkus, and this would be greatly appreciated. thank you very much, and we look forward to seeing you on Monday :)
anyway people! because there's a high high high chance of food shortage. cause we have alot of big eaters. do you guys mind bring food to the chalet? like cook fried rice, or mee or something. then we can smuggle into the chalet! so there will be sufficient food for everybody to fill their stomach! :)
don't wait for each other to bring food kay. or else nobody will bring =/
thank you allllll! :DD
and very sorry for the trouble caused bout $$ and food.
first of all, i'm very sorry but i think there's a need to collect more money for the chalet. $18 each person! isit okay? cause catering a bit expensive arh =/
okayyy. i'll explain everything here okay.
the chalet is $514. +- 60 people going. (that is if 60 people do turn up) $18 * 60pax = $1080 $1080 - $514 = $566
the catering is $12++ per person. (+- $14?) $566 / $14 = 40pax food.
so it's 40pax food for 60people. i don't think you guys wanna pay above $18 right. so is 40pax food okay?
cause i really don't wanna order more then got money that cannot be settled. and in the end do last min collection at the chalet which is really not ideal.
really sorry for the last min update k! if there's not huge responses from you all, i'm gonna take it as it's okay? so if you have any comments, just spam the blog.
catering will be on the first day of the chalet, 8th june. as the main comms will not be able to make it on the 2nd day. and people wanna go clubbing on the 2nd day.
DETAILS. Aranda Country Club. Mon - Wed. 8th to 10th June 09. room 2316 (2nd floor). $18 for chalet! come bout +- 3.30pm. bring sleeping bag.
for the person who really wants the bbq. i hope you understand that bbq require cooking and not everybody wants to bbq the food. and it's not fair for the people who volunteered to bbq but get remarks like "why so long", "the chicken not cook", "you all cook not nice", "why the chicken cold one", etc. so i hope you'll understand why we chose to do catering instead of bbq. unless you offer to bbq food for everyone the whole night and not grumble when people make remarks.

there's no changes to the details of the chalet. everything's still the same. 8th to 10th june. aranda country club chalet. there will be catering of food for one of the nights. then we'll prolly buy some food to stock up in the chalet if there's excess money.
everybody prepare bout $15 for the chalet & catering okay. excluding $ for outside expenses.
pay when you come for the chalet on the day itself (8thjune). if you can't pay then sorry, please go borrow from someone or withdraw or something. cause you all have 1 week plus to prepare $15.

I need a very serious help from all of you. It is concerning the long awaited CHALET you guys been waiing for! Okay, currently, i have not come across of any chalet that is not booked during the month of June. So i need you right now, to ask your father mother sister brother, WHOEVER OKAY, if they can help us book a chalet. Or if anyone of you knows. Because if you don't do it, we'll prolly have no chalet. I'm serious. This is as serious as the swine flu. Some pics from our previous Rinku chalet to get you excited! HAHA. we are happening kids.
Jeremy, Mengchou & Myself are overseeing this event, and we welcome extra help! we would need people to help us out for 1. FOOD SUPPLY & BARBEQUE NIGHT. 2. PROGRAMME. 3. NIGHTWALK ( GLS ). 4. LOGISTIC.
send a text to 98273052 and state your name and what would you like to help out with okay. Or MSN me @ email@example.com
Its gonna be as fun as the effort we put in to organize this so i hope everyone will help spread the word and volunteer for the various departments!
hey everyone, brendon here! first off, i'd like to apologise on the failure of what we call 'sports day' today, mainly cos there was no proper planning, and honestly i can say i kinda thought more for myself than for the whole rinku as to what activities to do and stuff :/ so after some thinking i've made sports day more 'structured' in a sense that there's a proper meeting place, time, etc. so here's the new, and hopefully improved Rinku sports day:
1) MEETING TIME 6PM @ ASTROTURF 2) ACTIVITES SHOULD STOP BY 8:15PM 3) DAY OF 'SPORTS DAY' FOR THE WEEK TO BE STATED IN BLOG ON SATURDAY (by me, hopefully)
this is what i've come up with so far. as for activities, im thinking if i should make it a fixed activity per week OR free & easy. note: if it's free and easy, please make plans and co-ordinate with others as to who's bringing the balls, etc. having the mindset that others will definitely bring something may cause you to end up with nothing to do at all! do give me feedback and suggestions on what else i can improve on, and many apologies to those who felt bored/hungry at the later stages of today due to having nothing to do/waiting for others to finish up :/ ciaoozzzz
Designed by Emily. The front of the shirt means Rinku is in our heart! Or can be interpreted as Rinku is love too. A pair of wings at the back. [Note that the position of the heart is NOT at where our real hearts are (" the heart is located below our left lung which is somewhere in the middle of the lower ribcage" )! ] -edited by Jeremy.
Ni hao, can someone change the blogskin and add some stuffs up like pics with our freshies? and the song is highly irritating can we change it. HAHAHA.
anyways, some shirt designs while i'm in sports complex stoning away. please do not stone me if it's way out of your expectations. chankeubs. :D simple designs, just play with the fonts.
DESIGN 1. it's called, the sex. corny not. front view.
back view- the first sentence is " we sing, we dance, we steal things" and the one below is, "and we don't get caught" HAHA.
DESIGN 2. FRONT VIEW. if you try typing those number in a text message, it'll become RINKU. COOL NOT. i smart hor. the small words is "figure me out if you're smart." cos there will prolly be not so intelligent people around. LOL
BACK VIEW- ni hao, zai jian. in english- hello, goodbye. and the small words is " stop asking already." since everyone loves to ask us NI KAI XIN MA.
OKAY GOODBYE, the tuesday pompoms (BRENDON DOLYCE LYNETTE ) are obligated to like my design btw. HAH
