2009 Christmas Celebration in Singapore

Labels: , ,
Posted on Thursday, January 7, 2010

Me and Karla at FusionpolisThis is my second Christmas in Singapore.  Maybe in two years time if I am a Permanent Resident alreadt, I might consider going home every Christmas.  It's just so expensive to go home during Christmas.

Anyway, December 24 was half-day in our office.  A day before that I went to the grocery to buy the ingredients for my macaroni salad.  Speaking of macaroni salad, I would be posting tomorrow my recipe for that.  I spent around 30 SGD for all the ingredients for the 1kg macaroni.  When I got home, I boiled the chicken while I was having my dinner.  After dinner, I started chopping onions and carrots.  That was tough.  Would you believe that I finished by 12mn?  That macaroni salad was hard labour.  Thank God everybody liked it and should I say it was yummy.

December 24 morning, our company had our Christmas party at Fusionpolis.  This is my second Christmas party in the company and this time I had fun.  We had lots of games and one incident that annoyed me was the Treasure Hunt game.  We need to find some items within the building and since we don't have most of the items, my team mates went to the Drugstore to buy.  I already contributed my hanky, nail clipper and a picture of Hello Kitty so I felt that I don't need to find some of the items.  Me and other Pinay team mate wasn't that into the Treasure Hunt and was just taking photos.  After a while, we have decided to go to the Drugstore to somehow cooperate.  We then saw our two Indian team mates and other teams.  I was shocked that I was asked by one of them if I have money.  I only have 10 dollars in my wallet and I replied "10" to her.  I didn't get any items from the store by the way.

My Pinay team mate got a curler which I was supposed to pay since she doesn't have cash as well.  We we're on queue when my other Indian team mate suddenly harrassed me to pay for the items she's buying.  I was in shock that I replied her sarcastically.  But she kept on forcing me to pay.  That was really humiliating since my other officemates are in queue.  I ended up giving my ATM to the cashier to pay for the items.  She then said that I don't have to worry that she will pay.  Until this morning she hasn't paid me a cent.  I'm thinking of talking to my Supervisor or our Agent if she will still ignore paying me.  In the first place, what are they doing in the Drugstore if they don't have money?

After all the games, our team won the first place.  We all got 20 SGD vouchers from Fair Price.  My Christmas eve and the Clown theme party story tomorrow!

Hi Koi! I'm really happy to know that you're back in your blogosphere.

I missed the macaroni salad knowing that you have a special talent in food preparation. Hope to taste that unique recipe when you get back here in the Philippines. :P

Anyways, with regards to your Indian friend. How about if you remind her first to pay the money you lent her before bringing up the matter with your superiors? She might have just unintentionally forgotten it. Reminding might help her recall her obligation. Also, she would feel bit abash considering that both of you were receiving wages, that is if she has a conscience.

Anyways, with regards to your Indian friend, I hope she would settle the money she borrowed from you soonest. How about if you remind her first to pay the money you lent her before bringing up the matter with your superiors? She might have just unintentionally forgotten it.
