Christmas is finally here!!! (Well, sort of.) At this time of the year, everyone is busy giving and receiving out blessings and gifts to their friends and loved ones, and this joyful atmosphere of the Christmas season came to HALL IV too and this calls for a warm gathering and bonding session, immersing everyone in this season of caring and sharing in the midst of the IHG and IHRG.
And this year, HALL IV welcomes a special guest to celebrate Christmas with us – and that’s HOLLY!!! (HOLLY is the IHG mascot initiated by the joint hall publicity heads and he (she) will be circulating around all 16 Halls in school (and stay around in the hall for a couple of days before moving on to the next hall – during this period of time, residents can stay tune to the locations of HOLLY and grab a chance to take pictures with him (her)) and we are very lucky to be the first hall to start the ball rolling and coincidentally, we can celebrate Christmas with HOLLY!!!)
Coming back to the event, everyone brought a small gift for the Christmas gifts exchange and boy, there were such a variety of gifts and the most special gift of all (in my opinion) there was a bag of two pineapples, that were nicely tied up in ribbons(?!)!! Then as the crowd kept coming in while the gifts were being coordinated, everyone was invited to start enjoy the pot-luck prepared by the block coms from respective blocks - there was so much food! We have roasted chicken, baked macaroni, mee goreng and many more food that were simply delicious. One thing that could not be missed during Christmas – Christmas caroling – There was Christmas caroling performed by a group of guys during dinner and everyone had a sing-along session and a good laugh when the guys sang the Christmas songs like the songs from army. But I have to say, this is a good thing because through this, the atmosphere was livelier and well, isn’t Christmas supposed to have this special tingling feel of joy and cheer with lots of laughter? :)
Just then, we have the games session lead by our emcees and all of us have a good laugh again while we enjoyed the food and music.
Just as we were enjoying ourselves, there was another special guest appearance and guess who is it? Yes! It’s Santa! Santa Claus came along with a big bag of gifts for everyone – which is a big bag filled with yummy chocolates and candies… After he had distributed his small gifts to us, it was time for one of the “main” items for the event – THE CHRISTMAS GIFT EXCHANGE!!! After which, it was time for LUCKY DRAW!!! Then there was a special item for the event – writing wishes on balloons, which were hung around (well… technically, above) the entrance of canteen 4. Wishes were made and mostly, (as can be seen) WE WANT GOOD GPAs!!!! Well wishes and blessings were expressed on the balloons, but no matter how big or small our wishes are, it’s all about the hope that it will all come true. :) Then before this Christmas event comes to an end, it was MOVIE TIME!!! Everyone enjoyed the movie with the accompany of one another, with friends and well, OUR HALL FAMILY. Of course, we would like to thank all residents for their support and for coming down to join us and not forgetting all the event planning committee and helpers in making this Christmas event a success. This Christmas event is another job well done again by our social secretaries, bringing everyone closer to one another in this season of caring and sharing. A big THANK YOU again to those who came and we hoped to see you again in our next hall event. :)

Viva La Musica
It was the end of October. The time of the semester again where the constant flurry of activities in Hall 4 subsides as residents start their examination preparation. Stress piles up. Bodies and mind becomes weary. A break was needed.
Meanwhile at the podium, the JCRC had gathered in the afternoon, spending hours preparing for an event which was to serve as a getaway from studies for the residents. The venue was set, those involved were ready. It was time to start. It was time for Viva La Musica.
Dressed up for the occasion
Viva La Musica consistered 2 components: Hall Idol and Exam Supper.
Hall Idol served to recognise the various talents of Hall 4 and pit them against each other as to who will emerge the winner of the title and trophy of Hall 4’s Hall Idol.
Trophies for 2012 Hall Idol and runner-up
Amongst our contestants were none other than our Hall Prince this year, Quek Wei Jie and Jam Band Head Jonathan. Some took it a step further to accompany singing with instrumental like Bernadette’s and Jonathan’s piano and Joanna’s and Horace’s guitar performance.
Presenting to you...our Hall 4 Hall Prince!
Should you feel inspired and want to hear more of the songs they sang, here’s a full list of contestants and their performances:
1. Wei Jie – I’m Not Sad by Stephanie Sun
2. Wei Siang - Dandelion's Promise by Jay Chou
3. Joanna – Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars
4. Jia Jun - I Heard That Love Had Return by Sandy Lam
5. Bernadette – Skinny Love by Bon Iver
6. Horace Lee – No Such Things by John Mayer
7. Jonathan – Make You Feel My Love by Bob Marley
8. Xin Kai – Letting Go by Sam Lee
Though competition was fierce and many of the contestants almost matched up to each other, there could only be one idol and a runner-up. Jia Jun with his rendition of I Heard That Love Had Return by Sandy Lam took home the first place followed by Xin Kai with Letting Go by Sam Lee.
Hall Idol - Jia Jun
First Runner Up - Xin Kai
While enjoying good music, residents were also invited to feast on good food of the exam supper consisting of sumptuous Egg Tarts, Curry Puffs and Apple Strudel from Polar Puff & Cakes and Jelly, Yoghurt and Drinks from Marigold. Staffs from Red Bull were also giving away cans of red bull energy drink to the residents.
Because we always instagram our food before eating

Soon it was the end of the event, but the residents who came down did not just leave empty handed. Each was also given an exam package consisting of various goodies and useful items for their examination preparation such as audible heart notebooks, KOKA instant noodles and Indocafe coffee.
Free goodie bags awaiting collection
Such an extensive event could not have been possible without the help of the various sponsors’ help and the 26th JCRC for organising and planning. Even more so would it not have been successful if not all the residents that came down to participate. Exam might have come to a close, but the activities in Hall 4 will never stop. Look forward to seeing you in the next one! :)
MID AUTUMN FESTIVAL AND HALL BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
After the Round Island Supper that was held not long ago in August, it is time to have another annual event which is none other than the celebration of the Mid-Autumn Festival. It is also the day where Hall 4 was established! With our well known peace-loving and unique ‘Hokkien’ culture, this night had truly brought lots of laughter and enjoyment to the residents.
The theme for this event was “Relive the Hall 4 Culture as we turn 26!” which gave us an opportunity to introduce the unique culture of Hall 4 to the new residents. It was also a night where new ties were nourished as hall fellows, alumni and residents interact and mingle around with each other while having dinner together without forgetting the traditional festival.
Before the “concert” begins, residents were encouraged to participate in the “Best Photo” competition whereby they poses with creative poses which incorporate lanterns, sparkles and candles in it. The “concert” officially starts with the walking in of JCRC Junior Portfolios and an opening speech by our Senior Hall Fellow, Professor Yap. Everyone were then invited to grab the buffet dinner provided and watched the performances happening concurrently.
First up was the Hokkien singing performance by Xian Yang, Horace, Xin Kai, Weijie and Bernadette who sang several popular Hokkien songs which include songs by Andy Lau and Chris Hung. It was followed by a moon cake commercial game which involved a few residents and they indeed came out with several innovative ways to advertise the moon cakes. The next performance was performed by Timothy Chan, who showcased his talent in Wushu which reminded everyone about the exciting martial art that is now rarely seen. After which, it was KPOP dance session for the 15 junior portfolios of the JCRC, displaying a medley of the famous dances from various KPOP groups like Brown Eye Girls, T-ara, Girls Generation and Psy. The moon cake eating competition was up next and several residents were up against each other to finish as many moon cakes as possible! The last performance was by our very own Hall 4 Jam Band and this marked the end of the “concert”.
Not forgetting our hall birthday, a birthday cake was brought forward and everyone sang a birthday song to Hall 4 before Professor Yap was invited to cut the cake. While the cake was being distributed, a prize ceremony was held. The winners for the games won 2 Bengawan Solo snow skin moon cakes each and winner for the “Best Photo” competition won a bottle of wine. To conclude this event, residents were encouraged to join in the lantern tour at Yunnan Garden.
We would like to thank all residents for their support and all event planning committee and helpers in making this event a success. Last but not least, we would also like to extend our gratitude to Advisors Alliance Group, who sponsored us the delicious moon cakes. Once again, thank you everyone for participating and we hope to see you again in the next upcoming event!
