At the New Year Party

Water to Forget Love by Hao Song, Flowers by Hongyi Yao and Girl of South Sea by Miss Jing Liu were well-received by ITCS members. And a song to present wishes by John in the video, who was in France at that time received enthusiastic applause. And that the glass of water was given to Hao Song in time when he sang the line “Please give me a glass of water to forget love” made everyone burst into laughter.

Games at the Party brought forth a lot of fun, among which “Dominoes Game” was a great hit. People on the stage failed to copy the right poses while audience could not help laughing. Everyone had a great fun when one could hardly recognize himself in a distorted photo. And in the game “To Tell the Right Titles of Songs”, foreign postdocs Anke and Frans joined Chinese students to present a cross-cultural performance, which showed that music could transcend the boundaries between nations.
