Today’s the Yebber 1st Anniversary Party which was held at Mint Museum at 26 Seah Street, located just across the road from Raffles Hotel. There are 5 storeys and a roof top at the Mint Museum, which hosts a collection of old toys and games from way back. At the basement is the restaurant while the 2nd floor hosts the collectibles.

When I arrived at the party, the Yebber team were still preparing their stuffs and there was nothing I could do except to take photos! Haha… enjoy the photos! There will be more later =)

If you couldn’t find the place, you couldn’t possibly miss the Yebber sign! Thanks Yebber for making my life much more easier! =)

And in the background is a projector rotating the photos from past Yebber outings. Did you see yourself there?

The Yebber counter and the program sheet for the evening. Did you drop your name card for the lucky draw? I hope you won something 😉

I didn’t know that the mint museum is an official place! Apparently it’s officially opened by Mr George Yeo, the then Foreign Affairs Minister

If you look down once you are inside, you’d see the restaurant; else you can just make your way to the lift inside. So cool right? =)

And while you are inside, do observe the no outside food, no pets, no smoking and no photography rules. Oops! NO PHOTOGRAPHY?! Yikes! No wonder they had been staring at me!

There’s even a mint shop that you can get some souvenirs from! Too bad, by the time I was back to the counter, it was closed. =( There was also a shelve of stuffs (I didn’t catch what it was) but again, by the time I returned, the shelf was cleared. =( Sigh.

Feeling lost at where to go? No worries! There’s even a directory with HUGE FONTS! For the Yebber’s Party, we are heading to the 3rd floor! Yeah! Childhood favourites!

At the 3rd floor, you’d be welcomed by exhibits of soft toys and games from the early 1900s. Wow! It was really relic! I won’t have known any of these existed! It was on display at the door as well as the back of the room, where our food was. Argh… the food made my stomach growl…

Took a nice photo at the party? Don’t worry, there’s a Canon Selphy which was brought by the team for you to print out that Kodak or Canon moment. So  thoughtful right? Too bad it doesn’t take in MS Duo Pro. If you have a Sony camera, you are "in luck". =P

At the back of the room is where the speeches and prizes are going to be. Hey, what are the guys looking at?!

The floor is made of glass!!! If you are wearing a skirt (for the girls… if you are a guy and you wear a skirt… you may also want to observe this too), then here’s where you will not want to go to. People from downstairs can see what you are wearing underneath!

We were supposed to take a look at the roof top. However, the staff realised that the door was locked and we were all trapped at the lift landing! It was so stuffy! However, when he finally got his key, we were introduced to a nice area for roof top parties and dining! And oh, we even got to "look down" at the "rich" at Raffles Hotel which was just across the road. =)

It was a nice short tour of the place. The rest of the building was left for us to explore on our own. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go to the second floor, where the collectibles are. Shucks! I’ll be back soon! =)
