The School of Hard Knocks is in session!
Posted on December 28th, 2011 by admin
Strangers or even our NSTP colleagues must have thought something fishy was going on at eMedia last Thursday (December 22, 2011).
The place was overrun with ‘international students and teachers’ dressed in various uniforms. We must have looked like a gathering of misfits, geeks, jocks, school hooligans and uniformed ‘students’.
You see this was the legendary Back to School party for the cool people from eMedia and Alt Media.
Eager schoolkids arriving right on time.
Stay away from this teacher!
True to the school theme, teachers and students were divided into sporting houses or rumah sukan for the games. Members from the pink, orange, yellow and green teams competed ferociously in the Human Bingo, Gingerbread Eating Contest, Frame Game and Chinese Drawing games in the bid to win themselves delicious cookie medals and shopping vouchers.

The highlight of the party was seeing the Best Dressed finalists battle it out for the title. The six who made the cut were three very geeky students, a Scout, one preppy cheerleader and a sizzling saree-clad teacher.

All six were required to strut up and down a makeshift runaway and strike their best pose too.
In the end, it boiled down to the Scout and the scrawny Geek. The Geek would have won with his impromptu planking…until the moment the Scout decided to pull a ‘smackdown’ on him! The crowd went wild cheering him on as he received the iPad 2 as the winner for Best Dressed.
And the winner is….
The Back to School party was a fun gathering with many who walked away with fabulous prizes from the games, lucky draw and gift exchange.
Now, I wonder what next year’s theme will be……..
Until then, happy new year!
