CNY Eve Pictures

Finally I have time to upload the pictures. These were pictures taken on CNY eve.

That day we had to work half day. While the other teams were doing sales, I got my team to do spring cleaning as I know sales won't be fantastic that day. After spring cleaning, we proceeded to the conference room as Paul and I organized a BINGO game for all the agents. We gave out cash ranging from $2 to $50, hampers, off days, etc.

This is our BINGO machine


A BINGO Card


One of the grand prizes of this BINGO game, a hamper


Paul giving a brief on the game


Everyone is attentive while we call out the numbers





This is my tracking sheet to prevent cheating


And the two hamper winners both belong to my team. So lucky! After about one hour of number calling, the BINGO finally ended with a quarter of the participants feeling happy as they got their ang pows and their off days. It was 12 and we let the agents off for the day.


Me and my agents decided to hang out a bit, so they brought me to Lucky Plaza to eat authentic Filipino food. I thought why not since they always compromise and eat Chinese food with me. Haha.


This is the restaurant, simply named Asian Restaurant


The interior. Very simply layout, I feel like I am in Philippines itself.


Ordered famous Filipino beer. St Miguel.


The not-so-nice soup which we argued whether it was lamb or beef as it tasted like both. The waiter confirmed its beef.


Ronald playing PSP before the food arrived.


Amy


This vegetables is really delicious. When it first arrived, I thought it would be bland and tasteless, but I was totally wrong, its full of flavour. I think its even better than some Chinese "Chap Chye"


Ths next dish is this. Roasted Pork fried in their special sauce. DELICIOUS!!! I was praising this dish throughout the entire meal!


This is roasted pork again. Apparently Pinoys like to eat pork a lot.


This is hotdog popiah. Salty, just right for my taste. Better than vegetables popiah which is so common outside.


Fried Beef


This chicken was a flop. Totally not fit for consumption. Very tough meat, hard to bite and doesn't taste good at all!


After the entire meal, this was how much left. Thats how bad it was!


Pau smsing her darling


This is Pau's spare phone and I told her its really ancient. I don't see anyone using such a phone anymore nowadays.


After eating lunch, Pau, Ronald and I went shopping. Wanted to do some last minute shopping for clothes. In the end, couln't get anything as most shops are left with XL or L sizes only, due to CNY shopping. I only managed to get a Harley Davidson T-Shirt.


I like the slogan of this shop. "Everyone is Beautiful". Indeed.



Time flies. I had to rush off to Jie's house for reunion dinner with her family and Jay. After a very sumptious dinner with Shark's Fins, Abalone, Lobster, etc, we went out of the house and chit chat. Wallace (her son) suggested playing "fireworks" so we started.

This is Wallace. We asked him to sing a CNY song for us. (Video)

After he sang ths CNY song, we were on the topic of National Anthem and we asked him to sing for us. He readily did it! (Video)

At around 9.30pm, we made our way to Ice for Ktv.




Ice had to close at like 1.30am and we didn't enjoy ourselves enough so me and Jason proceeded to Clarke Quay. We met up with Pau, Burns, Ash and some other friends. The rest of them like yun, Esther and Paul went to Paul's house and played mahjong.

This is not where we went. I saw a huge crowd outside Lunar so decided to take a pic.


We went to Gotham Penthouse. My fave hangout last year, have not been here for months so decided to re-visit this place.

The girls having a lot of fun.



Cool Tan. I told Pau he is cute with his new hairstyle.


All the pictures.













We partied all the way till close to 5am. I had a very long but fulfilling day. 5 places in one day. Phew. A very jammed packed CNY's eve. I hope that this new year will be great for me, in wealth and career!
