The women dressed in traditional Songkran flowered shirts and showed off traditional customs, such as gently pouring water over the hands of senior citizens.

They also played games, such as Roshambo – commonly known as Rock, Paper, Scissors – and Rere Khaosan, a Thai version of London Bridges.

In the game, two players make an arch with their arms and sing while other players walk underneath. Randomly, the singers stop and drop their arms to catch a player, who must switch with one of the arch-makers.

The club also showed off other cultural arts to highlight the traditions of Songkran during the April 12-20 festival.
