  • Lunchtime Photography Workshop and Self-Defense



  • Lunchtime Photography Workshop and Self-Defense (07th 2010f July 2010)

    Light, Camera, Action! No, IHPC is not turning into Hollywood! But we did get a lot of action and thrills during IHPC lunchtime talks this year. From learning some cool moves during a basic self-defense course to getting that perfect shot on any digital camera in our photography workshop, the entertaining lunchtime talks allowed IHPC staff to have tons of fun filling up with good food – while picking up new knowledge and skills to enrich our lives.

  • IHPC Teambuilding at Sentosa

  • Lunchtime talks & Festival Celebration



  • IHPC Teambuilding at Sentosa (31st 2009f July 2009)

    The resort island of Sentosa became IHPC’s playground during our teambuilding event in July. It started with a fun-filled morning of games and activities at Siloso beach, where staff were divided into their respective groups to take on different challenges. Each team had to build their own Go-Kart out of plastic pipes -- and race against each other in our very own Formula One Grand Prix. The teams also had plenty of fun competing in an Amazing Race around Sentosa. After a hard fight, it was team ‘Hard Rock’ that emerged victorious – although when it came to learning to be better teammates, everyone at IHPC was a winner!

    Lunchtime talks & Festival Celebration (01st 2009f January 2009)

    “Self-development“ best describes the whole spectrum of social activities which were organized for IHPC staff during their lunchtime. The diverse range of topics included talks on eating healthy and personal grooming – and even extended to festive celebrations. Through these activities, the multi-cultural IHPC staff were able to have fun interacting with colleagues from different departments, whilst learning about each community’s unique cultural practices.
