That was the theme of my office's 1st annual dinner.
4 weeks ago, when the committee made the announcement about the dinner, everyone (mostly the ladies) have been planning what to wear and who to wear. sebab kita bukan hollywood, 'who to wear' tu applies to butik pengantin, kedai costume dan kedai jual dresses...which the tukang jahit tidak tersohor langsung. ;)
to make sure the success of the event, our managing director has handpicked the committee. i am one of the chosen one. oh, april was such a whirlwind for me. i have to prepare myself for the dinner and also i have to arrange staff performance. i used my solid power (kau!) and select kawan-kawan sebulu masuk performance. so kurang lah rasa terpaksa sebab, ala kita kan geng.
gedebak-gedebuk, 1 week down to annual dinner.
dress. got my kaftan dress. red, with bling empire waist.
make up. at first i decided to do my own make up (which im not good at), BUT...when i heard the clerks are hiring professional make up artist, mak tak boleh biarkan clerks lagi glamer daripada mak. hehe. jadi kita masuk geng mekap sekali, walaupun last minit. zass.
|gembira mekap tak gomak|
tudung. thank god for youtube, some minah arab ajar to style hijab. i lost count how many times i poked my head and ear during hijab styling trial session =_='
|suka amek gambar sendiri|
clutch. bukan takda, tapi yang ada tak glamour. so on the day of the event, i went to sg wang to get some cheap yet blingy clutch. i have to be at the venue as early as 1pm..so might as well kill 2 birds with one stone. hah siap peribahasa.
shoes. pasrah aje dengan kasut yang ada.
finally...the night is here. dinner starts at 8pm. the show opened by AC Mizal, follwed by gong ceremony and makan. i missed the magic show, because i have to be backstage to standby (ehem) for the staff's performance. menyerlahkan bakat terperam. we sang 5 medley, and some joget-joget also.

|2nd medley, dangdut. barulah ramlah ram.|
overall, i think the dinner went well. MD seems pleased...staffs seems to have a good time...that is most important for us the committee. and..i won the lucky draw!! i never got lucky when it comes to lucky draw. i didn't win the grand prize, but still LUCKY enough to win shopping voucher. kalau menang tv susah pulak..tv kat rumah ni ada 9 bijik dah..mana nak letak kan mama? 40inch pulak tu.
i (secretly) wish that there will be another round of annual dinner next year. jyeah
oh, introducing...my ladies at work. we somehow bond tanpa paksaan i swear. haha
