One of the ladies who works for the hospital group I volunteer with invited a bunch of us (staff and volunteers) to her place so we could meet her mom who is visiting from India.
That's Neelam behind me and her mom is to the right.
We started with salad, snacks and appetizers while waiting for everyone to arrive.
And then to my surprise, we played games.
First up was the bangle game where you had to find as many pairs as you could in 45 seconds.
Not as easy as it sounds since there were teeny little golden designs on some of them.
Next we played Bingo and I won twice, by being the first to get 5 numbers and then with a full house.
Since there were prizes involved, that meant I got two gifts.
And the final game was to see how many matchsticks you could stack on top of a bottle opening in 45 seconds. Again, not as easy as it looks.
This time I tied for the most with two other ladies -- we all got 22, so then it was time for the playoff, but this time we had only 20 seconds and had to stack them using only one hand, picking the matchsticks up one by one.
I managed to win with 10 matchsticks and received two gifts which I promptly handed over to my two opponents. :) A win-win for everyone.
Lunch and dessert was then served before we wound down the afternoon and all started to head home. It was such a lovely time, lots of good food, meeting some new folks along with Neelam's sweet mom, as well as playing fun and challenging games.
Hope you are having a fun weekend.
