Office End-of-Year Makan (X’mas Pud, Part II)

Remember the Bread and butter pud, two posts ago?

Well, this is its story, or of the actual event in which it starred. That would be our office’s end-of-year do, with a seasonal feel to it somewhat. Can’t tell you exactly where I work but here’s a clue:

Two magnificent erections at the entrance to the workplace.

Here’s the deal-  everyone who’s still around at this time of the year brings something, a drink, a dish, whatever, just a little bit.

We’d eventually end up with a lunch buffet spread to enjoy with a few friends from other departments.  These are  what we managed to collect in the end.

There were also Bee Hoon Goreng, courtesy of the Boss, and Egg and Tuna Sandwich made by our Lady of the Office, Hjh Noor. But sweets were the order of the day it seemed.

And of course there was a lot of  tuneless and nonsensical yelps, grunts and screams in the guise of singing and merry-making too… a release of pent-up stress… let’s call it therapy, maybe.

That’s the office –  we celebrate Raya, Divali, Xmas, Chinese New Year, Birthdays… heck, we even celebrate a pen dropping on the floor… any excuse really…

Kullu ‘aamin wa antum bikhair. Selamat Menyambut Awal Muharram 1403 Hijriah. You know what’s gonna happen tomorrow then…
