Dinner + Karaoke

Eating and karaoke are pastimes of many of our execs and members, so what fun it is when you put them together on the same night!

If you plan to go karaoke-ing again, remember that Echo Point has been kind enough to offer discounts to WASABI members – check out our “Sponsors” tab for more info.

Origami

To spice up our weekly Snacks and Chill event, Wasabi execs decided to teach its members some Origami! We were very pleased with the amount of people in attendance and throughout the event it looked as though everyone were enjoying themselves immensely! We made more than just a crane or two as my clever execs made shuriken, flowers and even a kirigami bow!

I was so happy with how quickly people picked up the steps!! Definitely one of my favourite events of the semester!

Sushi Night

The origin of our club name “WASABI” is actually a mystery, even for our execs. But what we do know is that we would be letting you guys if we didn’t have a SUSHI NIGHT for you to experience the famous Japanese dish (plus some wasabi).

Yesterday, WASABI collaborated with Calligraphy Society for a Write and Roll event, where members of both societies could experience calligraphy and sushi-making at the same time!

Special thanks to Daruma for catering our sushi rice.

Nausicaä Film Screening Event

Yesterday,  we had our first collaboration event with USYD Enviro Collective,  screening the renowned Ghibli film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. It was a great chance for everyone from Wasabi and Enviro Collective to reflect upon the impact our society can have on the environment and the detrimental impacts it may present to future generations.
