Yeah, it's that time of the year again. Our SPH Marketing Year-End Party which was held last Thursday, where we had to dress according to the theme determined by the party commitee which in this case was - Wild Wild West!! Our big boss, James was the 'senior consultant' on the commitee and my boss, Danny was one of the head honchos i/c of the running of the party. One of the event company that we worked closely with lent us most of the props including the swinging bar door you see above..I think they did a fab job transforming the auditorium into a bar saloon! Everyone was feeling rather festive this year probably because Christmas had just passed and New Year's coming but more importantly, this year's bonus was reported to be much better!! It will be given out next week so everyone's waiting in anticipation :)
This is the 3rd SPH marketing party I've attended (the first was the Back to School Party and we had the Rock Party last year) which also meant that I've been in SPH for 3 years already! How time flies! I still enjoy my job and the pay is decent (could be better though :P). My colleagues are great and it helps too that the company has pretty good perks. Can't complain much~
I went as a cowgirl (how original right :P)..was shopping around and found this gorgeous brown skirt and lacey top and thought it was the perfect attire for me. Loved the straw cowboy hat too because of its material (not the usual suede type) coz I can also wear it to the beach. Paired it all with a brown pair of boots (ikepod - I got it from River Island hor - NOT CHEAP!!) My colleagues were saying that I look so much younger in the outfit and I can't help but agree. Look like little girl leh :P And everyone looked so cool in their outfits..Most of us were either cowboy/girls or Red Indians!
PBP stands for Product Branding & Promotion.
That's James on the far right..He's the big boss I was referring to earlier on so he determines how much bonus we get :P
Huey Jiuan, who I've been working with closely together all these years is next to be on my left and Ruth is on my right.
That's Ching right in front. Ruth & Ching are in the branding team.

Niccolle (in the middle) is a new addition to our team..
She used to be in display sales and transferred over to join us after Grace left.
Leslie Fong, our EVP in Marketing (our big big big boss) - probably the only time we'll get to see him in jeans at work.
'Kills Cowboys in Jeans'
Yeah, there's a rule set by him, that marketing folks aren't allowed to wear jeans in office which explains the copy..
'Notorious outlaw for the past 21 years. Thousands of slaves have suffered.

And a mechanical bull for the daring. I only lasted 14 seconds hehe..
The best dressed group contest ended up being a 'highest entertainment value' contest. Our creative folks from PBP really went all out and impressed the judges winning us the title! Most of the costumes & props were hand-made! Really impressive!
Check out their winning performance..
With the belle of the night!! Miss Dollah!
Oops, forgot to take off price tag off my boots :P

The end of the year is drawing near soon! It has been quite a year I must say especially with me having to go to the hospital so many times! I just hope next year would be a peaceful one for us and that my family and loved ones to be healthy and happy!
