I’m sure those of you who have access to my FB account have seen the photos of our company Annual Dinner end of last month.
Since it was my first time attending this event as a staff (I have attended their previous annual dinner events, but as VIP, heh..) I didn’t really know what to expect, and what to wear.
I was just too lazy to go shop around and buy a new dress, so in the end, I just wore one of my old dresses (which I have only worn it once: during my engagement party, ha!) and thought I was too overdressed. I didn’t even have any fancy hairdo; I just let down naturally.
But whoa.. I was so shocked to see some of the other ladies’ dresses that night! Some even wore wedding evening gowns or lela rose bridesmaid dresses-type, complete with full-on make-up and salon-styled hair! And mind you, all the dresses were bought, not rented okay! It’s crazy!!
I mean, where did they have the time to go to the salon and did all this?? We all had to work that morning until 3pm, and needed to be at the event by 5pm what! @_@
This year they had a different theme, whereby our seating is determined by our bracelet colours, which was given when we registered at the door. So yeah, WC and I didn’t get to sit together; he at the VIP table, and me way at the back at the Green table.
The outlets performances were also great that night. I guess lucky them because most of the staffs were youngsters, and youngsters mostly could dance, or at least move to the music.
Whereas my outlet.. we only managed to practice for 3 days, thanks to me, haha.
We all chose this song:
Let’s Twist Again by Chubby Checker, and I wanted to insert some intermediate moves in our performance, but I was scared the colleagues would not be able to learn the steps in time. So basically all the moves were simple to follow.
What I wore during the performance, hehe
With only 3 days of practice, and with colleagues who claimed they all have 2 left feet, not to mention that the dj kept messing up our music, we were surprised that we got 4th out of 6 places altogether. So who knew? Haha..
I’m sure you all are curious to see the video right? According to WC, he only took a video of our performance, thus not much performance photos.
I have yet to view the video though. Will upload it soon for you all to see and laugh! :p
