Vad du kommer att göra

I will invite you into my home in a typical housing estate, where an average Singaporean lives. I will teach you the basics of Mahjong (the game seen on Crazy Rich Asians!), and you will then learn by experiencing and playing on your own, with guidance. Do not worry if you do not know how to read Chinese characters, the mahjong tiles are very pictorial and I will provide a guide sheet for you to use as reference in identifying the tiles. You will also get to recognise some Chinese characters (especially the numbers) along the way! At the end of the session, you will understand the scene from Crazy Rich Asians like a pro.

My parents or friends might join in so you can look forward to a good chat and good time together. Also included: bonus tour of a typical public housing home!

If you are really keen and there is no availability at the moment, write in to me and we can see how we can make it happen! Write in to me too if you would like to make a private or corporate booking. View more pictures @mahjonglah on Instagram, and follow us too!

As featured on the largest Singapore-based Chinese-language newspaper, LianHe ZaoBao, Channel 8 news, Mothership, Hype & Stuff and other online platforms.

I am an educator and I love teaching! It excites me to be able to share this beloved past time with you, for you to be able to experience this very local activity. Mahjong is a nostalgic part of my teenage years and early 20s, it represents a certain carefree lifestyle for me and my friends. Friends would come over and play till the middle of the night before we adjourn to supper, for more conversations and laughter. Now, it is a great way for me to get to meet people from all over the world and exchange culture and stories. Anything can happen over a mahjong table, let's create some memories!

Var ni kommer att vara

The session will be in my home in a typical housing estate. On your way here from the train station (NS14 Khatib), you have the opportunity to wander through local stores and experience the hustle bustle of a neighbourhood. From the train station, there is a shuttle service every 10-20 minutes to the Singapore Zoo/ Night Safari, so you can plan to visit them on the same day as this experience.

An amazing experience. Our hosts clearly and easily explained all the rules and we had lots of time to practice and play a few rounds with them. A great introduction to mahjong for complete beginners!

My friends and I loved this experience! The teaching was so well thought-out and clearly presented. Sabrina was not available, but we played with her parents, and they were patient, gracious, and invested in our learning. We left with handouts and big smiles. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to play mahjong or just get a taste of this great part of Singapore's culture.

What a fabulous evening! I feel like we were at a family friend’s house. Sabrina, her dad and her sister were so patient with us while we learned to play Mahjong. I need three more lessons as there is still so much to learn. Thank you all for a fantastic experience. I highly recommend meeting this beautiful family and learning how to play a new game.

Great and very local experience! Always wanted to learn mahjong (since inspired by watching Phua Chu Kang) and Sabrina's family made it an absolutely lovely experience! One step closer to becoming a mahjong master :-)

So much fun for my group of 3 friends to finally learn this game I've heard so much about. I feel like if someone invites me to play, I can easily step into a game with some knowledge now. Sabrina is a great teacher and made us feel very welcome in her home.
