Year End Get Together

As the year ending, plenty of get-togethers arranged by colleagues and friends. A couple of get-togethers that I managed to snap photos. I organised one, for 50 people at the office and was so busy running around making sure everything was in order, egging people to eat more, mingle and not left out, I totally forgotten to take any photos! Pity.

It was a week of indulgence for me, with 3 year-end lunches to attend and I actually missed out one. Thank you for inviting and including me!
A next door department lunch that I attended. Yummy food all around.
A gift exchange session with my "makan kaki". We went for lunch at Flying Chilli's earlier. I'll post some photos about the lunch session later. The second photo there, we were busy picking up the ballot numbers for the gifts.
Two gift exchange gifts for me. It was a funny coincidence that those two gifts were of/from Japan. The first one was one IOU note from a friend who is going away for a vacation to Hokkaido next week. I wonder what she'll get me? The second one was a small hold-all. If anyone wonders why it is so funny to me, hop on to my other blog; Urutora No Hi for an insight.


It'll be a quieter week from next week onwards with plenty of people going away for their year-end vacation. It sure is nice that we won't need to work on any Fridays at all until next year! I love having public holidays on Fridays!


What's your plans for the Christmas and New Year break this year?

  3. @wenn,
    It was kinda hectic. It'll be much quieter next week onwards as plenty of people already go off for their vacation.

  4. @Evan's Mom,
    It was great getting the presents but I somehow feel that somebody else should get lucky and get the presents from Japan as me & my family literally went to that country very year. :D

    Kinda hard to get a good deal now, everything is so expensive being a peak season and all. :(

  7. I'm planning to stay back in PJ/KL and not go anywhere as it would be peak travel times, so maybe I'll meet up with friends, go movies, karaoke, dining, shopping, just basically have a relaxing time! I hope the next two weeks will pass by very, very slowly : )

  8. @foong,
    I've started feeling that it's Christmas Eve everyday now! LOL
    Definitely food takes centrestage. That and the "kakis" second. :D
    Just before you know it, your two seeks will be passing by. Oh God! Just two more weeks before school starts and back to the old routine.

  18. @Auntie E,
    Time with family during the holiday season is the best (although it may sometimes come with a little bit of bickering with them). :)
    And thank you for dropping by too.

  19. we just attended hubs office xmas dinner last friday and it was great, no photos though. Hubs is the shy type so i obliged not bringing camera. I bet he'll be shy with me snapping around and it's in his boss' home. I had to prepare spring rolls as requested and all 80pcs were gone before dinner started!

  20. @Ayie,
    Wow! You made 80pcs of spring rolls! I love spring rolls. Can I have some? :)

    I wouldn't be comfortable snapping photos at certain places too, more so at somebody else's house.

    Many more xmas parties to attend?

    ReplyDelete
  21. no more xmas parties, not so lively here like I said. Waiting for my baby showerS! haha!
