Remember remember the end of Movember

It seemed they wanted us to forget. The G&Ts were four for $20 and the bar was free-flow for the mo-ed from 10:30. Here in the cold light of the morning after, however, the evidence persists:

…and even managed to pull together a fine Safari Dance, featuring moves such as Hunt The Tiger, Hike The Jungle, and my personal favourite: Is That A Long Snake? Yes It Is.

But of course the real winner in Movember is Men’s Health. Movember funds programs for Prostate and Testicular Cancer and Men’s Mental Health. Their slogan says, “Knowledge is power, prevention is everything, early detection is key!” and a letter recently posted on the Movember Singapore Facebook Page certainly drives the point home:

Thanks to those who donated this Movember – either to us or elsewhere.

And stay healthy. As long as you can.
