Wow, I can’t believe it’s been three years since I last posted about SAMA/MCAC!
For those who didn’t follow me back when I posted more frequently (heh), I used to post a lot about this wonderful club that I was a part of during my Uni years. I loved it so much that I was even on the committee in 2011-12.
So why am I suddenly posting about SAMA now in 2016?!
Well, September 2016 marked ‘Society for Anime and Manga’, previously known as “Monash Clayton Anime Club’ TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY, and to celebrate this joyous occasion, ten years worth of committee members came together!
It was such a magnificent sight to see ten years worth of generations that all played a part in building what the club is today. We had some of the oldies mingling with the youngins; and it was so awesome to see that despite the huge age difference that some of us had, we still had enough in common to hang like old friends ♥
Being on committee not too long ago meant that I was fortunate enough to already know many of the committee peeps and it really got me thinking how lucky I am to be part of something so special that about 80% of my actual friends were made through this group. I mean, you can even see Ash in the above picture which is saying a lot hahaha!!
Do we look the same? Hahah! It’s baffling to think that the bottom two photos were 4/5 years ago now.
Apart from taking a bunch of photos with one another and reminiscing over old times, we gathered at Burwood Teppanyaki for a pretty fun and interactive dinner experience! For those who have been to teppanyaki before, you would know that it always involves catching food/bowls that a chef throws at you. In our case, some special few people attempted to catch their bowls of rice from across the main road of Burwood Hwy. Pretty freakin’ intense hahaha.
The night ended when we were kicked out of Pancake Parlour, after being previously kicked out of Burwood Teppanyaki.
(Not because we were rowdy or anything, but because we stayed and chatted until both of them closed!)
♥ What an amazing club to be a part of! ♥
