Reunion dinner in March ?
No, we are not fashionably late for our traditional CNY reunion dinner. Rather we were invited to experience 'The Real Reunion ' dinner. Hosted by 4 enterprising NTU youth who made their project a national call for families to have their meals together, it is a reunion that aims to strengthen family bonds through meals.
To quote the organizers
'By redefining the notion of "reunion dinner", we hope that families can have meals together much more often and not limiting reunion dinner to any culture or special festivities.'
|Look who joined us!|

THE IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY MEALS
The fabric of family is woven by shared experiences and time spent together. Having meals together as a family can help family members leave behind their individual pursuits and foster better parent-child relationship. It is one of the simplest yet most effective ways for parents to be engaged with their child’s lives.
From the Chinese, to the Malay and Indian families, we all value the Asian values of collectivism and hold ideals of family unity and harmony. This is why our campaign aims to spread the idea that reunion dinner does not need to be a yearly affair, it can be a daily affair.
