Have been really busy and totally had no time for Christmas shopping! I mean I had been staying in the office till like 8 plus or 9 for the moving and packing, where to find time to shop???
So I planned to bake some cupcakes for my colleagues instead! (:
It’s sweeter anyway!
Only had enough mixture to make like 9 and only 3 out of the first 6 look presentable -.- I just needed 1 more and I was hoping that 1 of the remaining 3 can turn out well enough…
Unfortunately, they all turned into “dark chocolate cupcakes” because yours truly was too busy with the laptop and totally forgot about the kitchen!!! Argh. So it was a fail, end of story.
Decided to try another route to work by changing bus but I missed the stop! Zzzz! But I know I can survive as long as I have a 3G phone…hoho~
Took bus to Commonwealth area and walked a long distance before I finally reached the station~ But I walked straight into the pasar malam there! HAHA! Hopeless!!!
Luckily there is a supermarket there and I decided to get something for my boss and colleagues there! (:
Finally reached office with gifts stacking up to my face cause the glam queen refused to use the ugly plastic bag! Oops~ Take it as I’m saving the earth ya!
We were stuck outside along with the people from Singapore Power because Wilson latched the back door and we only have key for that! So boss rushed back to open the front door instead =/
Electricity check done in a few minutes and our power supply resumed! We have electricity for our party now~! 😀
Cleared a bit of stuff before heading to town for grocery shopping~! We gonna have our Christmas dinner in the new office! Hehe. ❤ ❤ ❤ grocery shopping!!!
Bought so much sashimi and sushi! *exciteddddd!*
Then dropped by Regent Hotel to collect our cake! (:
Initially, boss told us to just wait in the car~ Then he rushed back and insisted that we go in and take a look at the pretty Christmas decorations! Haha!
Back to office and we started tidying up the office a little more~ Then boss also started putting up Christmas decoration excitedly xD
The photo of the year...hahahaha!
And he decided to make some frosty effect -____-|||
This year’s Christmas dinner was a little different; not only are we not celebrating in a restaurant but our cozy new office instead, boss’s wife would be joining as well!!! It’s the first time she’s joining us for company dinner! (((:
Waiting for boss to be back from fetching his wife (and the chicken)! (:
But it turned out to be quite a long wait and Wilson and I were both famished =/
He even opened up the present from me to eat! Hahahaha!
A little gift from me (:
So boss was finally back with his family at around 8pm and we officially commenced on our Christmas party! Boss’s wife – Auntie J is really cute and she prepared so many Christmas-themed stuff! Look at the cute table cloth!!!
Even the serviette is Christmas theme! Haha!
So is the cup! 😀
Snowman plate with Miss Santa serviette…hehe.
I heard from Reiko that she had been quite excited about the party and I can totally see it! She was busy preparing and decorating the table, unconsciously mumbling to herself in Japanese as she was doing…haha! So cute! xD
Helping out with his “specialty” – the lighter!
Pretty, isn’t it!!! 😀
And she even brought these cute wine glass charms for us to identity our glasses!!!
Mine is an angel! 😀
Our glasses with individual charms!
And my glass of champagne with my angel charm! (:
Really love these candles decoration! It has a feel of those Christmas dinner that I have always been dreaming of having! Hehe.
Our first course meal is the roast chicken! But none of us managed to take a picture of it before boss tore them into pieces =/
Ready to dig in!
First main course~
Chit-chatting and laughing over the food and drinks, while enjoying the coziness of our new place (:
Done with chicken! Moving on to the long-awaited sashimi 😀
My favourite salmon sashimi!!! ❤
This is highly raved by Reiko! I know it looks disgusting for non-sashimi lovers, especially with the fish staring at you…haha!
Last time I would probably retch if I see this, let alone eating it. But after joining this company and under the influence of Japanese culture, I have learnt to appreciate sashimi and am loving them! xD
1 of the many sushi!
And Japanese glutinous rice!
Not only are my boss and colleagues fans of sashimi, they are also pretty alcoholic! So as expected, I am not spared from the Sake after we finished the bottle of champagne! Haha!
Reiko was giving Wilson some “sashimi tutorial” and teaching him how to appreciate certain kinds of sashimi xD
Then end it with a sip of sake~
“Dope!” He said! Hahaha!
Cheers to our sashimi-appreciation lecturer~! xD
We were super full somehow before we even finished the sashimi and sushi nor the chicken! And it was already close to midnight!
Auntie J was worried that we might have curfews or such (LOL) and on the other hand, boss was soooohappy and he kept saying it’s Christmas, so it’s okay to stay out a little late…hahaha!
Pressie from Reiko! 😀
Thank goodness I got them something in the end! Hehe.
Love Christmas! Love receiving so many gifts! (((((:
Ended the night with the log cake~!
What’s Christmas without log cake right? 😀
And they insisted that we must have red wine with the log cake because they compliment each other~ So after the bottle of champagne and then sake, it’s time for red wine! =O
Boss cutting the log cake~
Very seriously~~~ Hahaha!
Auntie J giving her advice~
They are really such a loving couple by the way! Once Auntie J said she’s cold, boss stood up immediately to switch off one air-con. He totally treats her like a princess even at this age, taking drinks and this and that for her~
Reminds me of Donnie Yen’s quote in Ip Man – 世界上没有怕老婆的男人，只有尊重老婆的男人! Where to find such husband?! Haha! And now I know why boss has always been so protective towards Reiko and I, as in the girls (:
Super filling cake! It’s soooo chocolaty and even has got fruits and biscuit bits inside! Cho~ nice!!!
May everything goes well in the coming 2012 and may we have a prosperous new year! (:
Finally ended the party at 1+ am and boss insisted on sending us home even though we said we can just take cab~ Mad tireddddd and sleepy, but it was a great night and bonding session! (((((:
