Mensa 61st Anniversary Dinner

Tonight, at the Peninsula Residence Hotel, 59 Mensans and friends gathered to celebrate the 61st Anniversary of Mensa and it is also the 23rd Anniversary of Malaysian Mensa.

We had the honor of Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon, CEO of Royal Selangor Pewter attending the event. Tan Sri Yong is also the founder and first chairman of Malaysian Mensa. It definitely brought back deep memories of many Mensans who have been around for a long time. Another founder member, Lee Loy Fatt was there too, as well as many other Mensans.

Our Chairman, Low Keng Lok was giving his speech to fellow Malaysian Mensans. Keng Lok has been instrumental in getting many Mensa members to attend the dinner~!

It is definitely heartening to see other Mensans there and see how everyone catch up with others. It is a great way for Mensans to keep in touch with one another.

As usual, Yee Dian brought out his mind games. Those are definitely fun. This time around, he brought around 10 objects, which he collected from around the world, and all of them do look very wierd. And fellow Mensans' job is to guess what its use is for.

Eventually, it is won by the pair consisting 2 of our ex-chairman, Tan Sri Yong Poh Kon and Mr. Lawrence Hie. They got 7 out of 10 correct. It really brought out the best out of Mensans! And more importantly, have fun!

As a personal reflection, since I joined Malaysian Mensa Society 11 years ago, it has brought me a lot of fun. This time around, managed to see a number of new Mensans attending. A couple of my friends, David Khaw Teik Keong and Alex Chia went and they really had a good time!
