Anniversary Party in Singapore

Anniversary Party in SingaporeI just hope I can still remember the details of the anniversary party. Anyway, the Anniversary party of my recruitment agency was last December 20. It was held in Amara Hotel near Tanjong Pagar MRT. I went with my Indonesian office mate, which of the same agency. My Filipino officemates from the same agency was already vacationing in the Philippines so I was the only Filipino guy in that party.

The invitation said that the program will start at 12 noon and will end by 3:30 P.M. We came in late almost 1 P.M. and the CEO of the agency was already having his speech. Since the room was already full, we just sat on the table near the buffet. By 1 P.M., we started feasting on the buffet. The buffet was very impressive. They served many variations from Muslim food, vegetarian, Chinese and some that I don't know. There's this other room where they the deserts, seafood, salad and sushi are placed. I just love the look of the cakes and fruits. That was heaven! I tried to eat everything but my stomach cannot accommodate that much.

By 2 P.M., the much awaited raffle draw started. I honestly wasn't in the mood for the raffle since I usually don't win. There are 17 prizes by the way and I was surprised my name was called on the 14th prize. It was an envelope and you can see through the paper that it is $10. I was honestly dismayed to just receive $10 (320 pesos) so I just folded it and placed it in my pocket. They also have this give away containing green tea and a chocolate coated cookies from Marks & Spencers.

Two days after, I was intrigued by the envelope and opened it up. My eyes were beaming with joy that there are actually 3 pieces of $10 in the envelope. That $30 (960 pesos) saved me from the $12 Christmas food contribution in our house and the $15 Christmas exchange gift in our office. The saying, "Do not judge a book by its cover" is so applicable for me.

If you like this post, buy me a cup of coffee.
