I attended the Hermès Games event during Thanksgiving at the former International American School, and it was easily one of the most fun events I went to this year. And – I got a mini work-out in the process :) Trivia: Evidence of Hermès’ attention to detail – the entire ceiling was done up just for this event – because the original ceiling looked too worn-down.
Welcome to the Hermès Games! All the sporting games which you are about to experience are familiar activities, done with an interesting twist.
Hula Hoops wrapped in the patterns of Hermès famed scarves
Glam Snakes & Ladders
Everyone got a bit of the action
Fancy a hopscotch on Hermès scarves? Your mother would probably kill you if you did this at home with her scarves.
Another use for your scarves – as an exercise equipment! Ingenious.
Luxe tag team action How I wish I could cart so many boxes from the boutique…that would be a happy Christmas :)
Claiming the champion pedestal
A Threesome Game…of badminton This must be the most high-class game of badminton I have ever seen – with a glass of champagne in hand lol
Fancy a double Dutch? The girls were really cute and good, and I felt like Humpty Dumpty skipping with them
Tug of War
Julian (he’s my elementary schoolmate!) & I did some horse-racing – with horses made up of broomsticks
After all the body work-out, it was time to work-out our mouths – food!
Very interesting stalls offering a varied menu
This was Julian’s favourite – char siew bao (BBQ pork bun) with a twist
Flattened char siew bao toast with a layer of cheese added I like the crispy texture
Even the beverages were so interesting…gotta try making them at home
Very artistic-looking dessert, couldn’t bear to put them in my mouth
Moving on to the indoor games area…
Victory! Can you sense the girls’ elation? :)
Throw the Hermes ball into the wastepaper basket Not as easy as it looks. I kept throwing at the cute guy standing behind instead. Poor thing.
Throw the rings into the sticks I totally sucked at this. I only managed to get 1 ring in out of TEN.
A luxe version of pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey
Topple the Hermès boxes! In other instances, I would say you are crrrazzzy
You have played ping pong, now be introduced to zing zong – played in stye with Hermès bats!
Fancy some Hermès boxing gloves? I think I would be too scared of spoiling the gloves to hit.
Everyone got to try out a scarf and take a photo with it
I’m a medallion winner at the Hermès Games!
It was a awesome end to the fab night, I enjoyed every bit of the event!
