Hello everyone! Just an update about our communication channels revamp/restructuring.

TPJCG currently has 5 communication channels – Email, website (tpjcg.org), forums, Facebook group, Twitter.

This does not include all the sub-sites/ channels used by our subcomms and project teams in the social media. Furthermore there was occasions whereby news were only updated in this subsites, missing out the official channels (GUILTY AS CHARGED). As a result, it makes it hard for newcomers to know the latest news and happenings in JCG.

While FB group has served us well most of the times for updates/announcements, the posts may “disappear” due to lack of activity and users often had to scroll and search to look for it. In addition being a group, discussions are inevitable and restricting it only for announcements, basic Q&A will reduce the chances of our members interacting with one another.
======================================

Under the new structure, there will be 6 TPJCG communications channels -
FB (2 – one group + one page), Twitter, Email, website, forums.

**All information about JCG main communication channels and sub-sites will be displayed in:

TPJCG website
TPJCG Facebook Page

**All JCG announcements will be posted via

TPJCG Facebook Page
Facebook group (in the form of Events)
Website
Twitter

**Members will be able to socialise and mingle arond with others to talk about TPJCG, Japanese culture-related topics, after-event chat (such as thoughts and comments about TPJCG/other related external events) through:

Facebook group
Forums

=========================================
The above changes will be taking places gradually and is projected to be completed by Dec 2012. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and welcome any feedback related to this issue. For feedback, please do send them to peifen@tpjcg.org

Have you ever seen Japanese sweets and desserts on television and thought “I want to make this!” but never had a chance to?
Or have you been curious about how to make those delicious sweets and desserts that made you salivate?

Well, fret not, the wait is over!
TPJCG will be holding a wagashi-making workshop for ‘Dorayaki’ and ‘Hanami dango’ in the month of July
“Wagashi,” traditional Japanese confections, incorporate the illusions of flowers into some varieties of sweets.
The term derives from “wa,” meaning Japanese, and “gashi,” meaning confections or sweets.

Dorayaki is a sweet pancake sandwiches filled with sweet bean paste.
The name comes from the Japanese word for the percussion instrument (the gong), which they resemble.

Hanami dango literally means “flower viewing dango” and is traditionally made during the sakura season, giving rise to its name “hanami”.

So what are you waiting for? Come on down and join us for the event! You can even make some of these dishes for your family and friends.
