ALP Moon Cake Dice Game Prizes
ALP President was the first to
roll the dice to start the ball rolling for the dice
game. Good luck everyone!
Sandra Torita throws the dice
into the bowl to check her number combination while
ALPers look on.

table prizes to run out first as she rolls a good
dice combination to bag the Chong Guan (1st Prize) !
At the end of the game,
ALPer Rich Pijuan proudly shows off her
Chong Guan prize! Congratulations Mam Rich!
Thank you Lord for letting me
get the top prize!
Participants draw their number to
determine who goes first to roll the dice and ALP
director Rich Pijuan was so lucky that day that on her
first roll of dice, he got the first prize combination
already with a combination of 4-11 (4pcs of dice with 4
and 1 pc each of 5 and 6) which is to be honest a hard
number combination to beat unless someone rolls a 5pcs
of 4s or other numbers! But since it was just the
start of the game, Rich has to wait till all the prizes
on the table are taken before another last round of
players will try their luck to beat Rich's number
But in the end after all the
prizes are taken, Rich still comes out the winner of the
Chong-Guan (first prize) with a beautiful 7" Generic
Android Tablet! Other big winners of the 2nd prize
are ALP director Edgar Ang with a pair of binoculars and
ALPer Berenice Chan taking the other 2nd prize with a
green laser pointer! Congratulations to this
year's winners! For the rest of the participants,
better luck next year for all of them :)
After a short socializations after
the game, the members called it a day and go home with a
happy hear as the event was very fruitful and nice group
bonding for the members of ALP!
