Early Year-End Office Parties

Year-end office parties started early this year at my office considering many will be away towards the last weeks of this month. Plenty of invitations and some organised by me, making me run around like a headless chicken these past few days. Not to mention running around to find gifts for exchange gifts at parties too.
What year-end cum xmas party would be complete without a turkey? I even managed to "bully" the hotel's FC (we got the turkey from Cititel Hotel, BTW) to carve the turkey for us. LOL
I did minimal decoration for the office party, emphasisng more on food. That's more important, right? XD And I sure was glad the food I ordered were all cleaned-up by my department's people.

I opted for all things western this time, and I realized that it is not easy to get affordable catering for such a menu! Most of my caterer friends don't do all out western menu. Well, not the type of food that I wanted anyway. What did we had for the party apart from the turkey? Nothing much:
Some BBQ beef ribs ordered from Tony Roma's
This delicious chicken pie from a friend
Pizza and chicken wings from Domino's Pizza
Not healthy without some vege, so some fruits too. For hygiene and convenience purpose, we had it put in individual tubs. I'm too lazy to think how to arrange those fruits, anyway.
And the finale was a birthday cake for December babies in my department.

Had your office parties yet? How was it?

    Are you on xmas break already? Or going to, soon?

    I like that chicken pie too. Most of those who ate it also rave about it. It was yummy!

    Have fun with your office party! Post up the photos too. As I recall, you promised to post up photos of your office once you finished decorating it, right? ;)

  6. @HappySurfer,
    No Hindus, but there are a few Buddhists that doesn't eat beef, hence the option of chicken wings, turkey, pies...
    The pizza with beef are also notified to those who don't take them.
