    You need to fill out the form if you want to attend as we only have so many spaces available (due to the size of the room). If you didn’t confirm, then we also can’t confirm that there will be space/room for you to attend.

    Hi Erik,

    Why do you guys always have to put your activities during the working days? I feel weekends for most working youths is always more more convenient. After most of us guys (the youths) are not the managers and therefore we cannot ALWAYS create execuses to our employers why we have to attend unoficial activity during a working day.

    Kindly reschedule most of the iHUB activities to weekends…..Me and other working youths wouldn’t want to miss any iHUB activity!
