D&D 29th August 2007 at Raffles Town Club
It was quite a grand dinner which involved outside school teachers, top scorers, parents, notable members of the public etc. Last year was A LOT more fun. I would very much prefer a smaller scale affair when everyone would feel at ease with one other. I dare say many of my colleagues did not behave like themselves too as we each had an image to uphold in front of “outsiders”.
I was also quite bored during dinner as I was seated with the outside pri school teachers and the pri curriculum colleagues whom I'm not very acquainted with and. All my same room kakis were at another table as they are from sec curriculum. Hmmph… If not for the magic show segments by our very own colleague, I would have been bored to tears and stifling from cough. I was still not feeling too good that day and was trying to remain as energetic as much as possible.
Let the photos do the talking for now.
The animals went in two by two, hurrah hurrah!
with viv my next table, cab sharing, same sch and everything kaki
So glad that she decided to come to her senses and do her hair. Haha... It took quite some time to persuade her to doll up once in a blue moon.
with joy my vegetarian suaning kaki
with apr my bimbotic same wavelength kaki
2nd boss' daughter kept posing on the stairs when me and apr were taking loads of ugly shots. Just when we stoop to her level to take a shot with her, she walked away!
I always think that she is Ms NICE coz she is just soooo nice.
She was a great help to me since she came in about 3 months ago. You see me blogging more? That's coz of her. Haha... she helped me ease my workload by quite a fair bit. No more marking till 6am.
ju and xp were my "food picker" that evening. I didn't wanna spread my very contagious URI germs and they were so nice and helpful to use their utensils to pick food for me.
The menu... [Click to enlarge]
I like the cold dish best. The rest were pretty much like wedding dinner dishes. I still can't understand why they have to put shark's fins in the si chuan suan la tang. Poor sharks!
One of the magic segments involved apr going up on stage, putting her ring into a box on the table and then having the table float right in front of her! apr was trying so hard to find strings but no strings. The way the table floated was quite magical. Reminded me of those fantasy Disney cartoons.
The floating table...
The ugly amateurish writing on the photos is a result of trying to blot out the co's name without the use of photoshop.
with mich & apr
Our ex IT guy. In the past, whenever we had any prob with the comp, we'll just holler for him. Hope he's doing well at his new co.
a bevy of ladies
Sean is such a Mr Nice Guy. He can be really professional and serious and yet do very siao siao funny things at times.
And of coz with our very own magician, fran!
I must say I was really impressed by his performance. It's one thing when you watch magic on tv. It's another when you catch magic live and the magician is someone you know.
The theme was "Masquerade" so of coz we must have photos of us behind the masks la.
Don't we look like super heroes instead of looking mysterious and coy?
Fooling around with viv's scarf...
Haha joy looked weird coz she had changed out
Oh I won 13th prize for lucky draw!
$100 Best Denki vouchers! Better than last year's $20 Taka vouchers. You will always win something when you least expect it. =)
"Glamour" shots developed straight on the spot.
I think I look anything but glamorous here...
Horrible bo skills photographer.
But I love this photo of the 4 of us!
This year was really a little sian. Nobody went clubbing after that. If I were not so sick, I sure go cheong wan. And then dear evan had to sms me saying she misses cheonging with me, the music is good etc etc and make me so gian. Wahaha...
For those who have been asking... Here are photos of my dress before I changed out.
It's really quite tough to capture the details. Photos don't do justice to the dress. Really love the design a lot! The short "pong pong" tiered skirt, the flattering cut, the tulled straps that criss cross at the back, the large ribbon with sparkling rhinestones... all of these make it such a unique little black dress. I forsee myself donning this for xmas party, new year's party, yada yada...
That's all for D&D. I've still got other stuff to blog about but kh is coming to pick me up for supper in about 5 minutes time. Watch out for more updates later when I return!
me lovin my LBD
