The morning was made perfect with the magnificent sun in all its glory over the island of Sentosa.
On 29 October, the boisterous beach hunks and babes of City Harvest’s YK, KS and VIC zones thronged to the sunbathed island to take a break from their busy schedules. They were in for a day of exhilaration, twists and surprises.
The day began at 10 in the morning, with the cell group and connect group leaders streaming towards Siloso Beach, chatting nineteen to a dozen in anticipation of a time of friendship and fun. Classic games like Dog-and-Bone and Captain’s Ball created the mood, but the creative organizers of the event, namely the YK leaders had much more in store.
Pig’s tongues and ears, raw chicken meat, and other peculiar objects, were used as props for the games; the women were apprehensive but determined to triumph, while color just ran from the faces of the men.
The sportsmanship of Goh Yock Kiang, Kenneth Sim, and Victor Wong (the heads of the three respective zones) was evident through a series of sun-and-sea sports. Relentless attacks, tireless diving into the sand and soaking in the sea — all was endured in the name of victory under the blazing sun.

At midday, a sumptuous beach buffet spread of savories and desserts was laid out on a picnic mat. Everyone ate to their hearts’ content, as chatter and laughter resonated. “I had a great time getting to know the other leaders on a more personal level,” said Angel Teh, a cell group leader of YK Zone.
As the day came to a close, charred and exhausted bodies made their way home, genuinely grateful for a day well spent away from their hectic schedules. Indeed, the three zones, consisting of more than 70 leaders, forged inextricable, close-knit ties this crazy, fun-filled day.
In the words of cell group leader Howard Kuay, “There was great food, fun games, great weather and the wonderful company of friends! What more could one ask for?”
