How’s the semester going for you? Are you overloaded with work? Feeling stressed? Or simply just nailing everything that’s coming your way? One way or another, everyone deserves a break! That’s why we’re bringing you our first Potluck of the year!
So what is Potluck? Is it a pot? Is it luck? Its neither (maybe pot :p), Potluck is a social event where everyone brings a dish to be shared. This is a great opportunity for everyone to just gather around, make some friends, grab some food and have some fun! Also, for those who love to cook, feel free to do so and bring along your best dishes (note that all dishes must be vegetarian). For those who are a little shy to show off your cooking skills (for now), you’re still more than welcome to join us for the night, but we do encourage everyone to bring a pot (well in this case, food), because what is a potluck without pots (food)? Besides food and games, we will also be introducing our upcoming Amazing Race (spoiler alert!). Sounds interesting? Come along to find out more!
As usual, we’re aiming to have a variety of food for everyone to enjoy, so do let us know what you are planning to bring and share with everyone. We hope to see all of you there, and bring your friends along too, because the more the merrier!

UNIBUDS WEEKLY Meditation
What are the benefits of meditation? Meditation helps to relax and settle our minds from our busy daily life. It also allows us to bring awareness to the present moment and to focus on the tasks at hand.
Why not spend a small part of our day to enjoy a little bit of peace and serenity. Take this excellent opportunity to practice, breathe and look within ourselves. For further enquiries, feel free to contact me! Hope to see you there!
