On 8th February, we ushered in the Year of the Rat trying to escape from an escape boat followed by a scrumptious spread at Lee Kee Chinese Restaurant in Dublin.
We had our Annual Trip on the 1st and 2nd November where we visited Cork city for an adventure-filled weekend!

It's time of our annual Chinese New Year gathering in Dublin again! This year, we had a Paintball session followed by a really scrumptious dinner.
Every year, the Irish Graduates Association of Singapore (IGAS) organises a specialties talk for all current Singaporean students studying in Ireland. This year, we had the privilege of having Dr Low Teck Boon, Dr Kevin Chua, Dr Peter Loke and Dr David Carmody to share with us a little on their journeys from medical students to where they are today.
Heading home to Singapore and starting out as a houseman has always been a daunting task for any medical student and even more so for the ones who have studied overseas. After receiving many requests to organise an information session on "How life is like working back in Singapore", SMSI finally had the chance to organise a session in conjunction with our seniors who have graduated from Ireland and started work in Singapore.
As mentioned in the APSN volunteer post, SMSI has been trying to liaise with organisations for more volunteer activities for our members to understand the community in Singapore. Down Syndrome Association (DSA) is one of the organisations which has also very kindly opened their doors to give us this opportunity.
