This morning at 7.30AM I was at Bandar Utama with my luggage bags next to me waiting in the early morning for a bus that was about to take me somewhere. I wasn't going alone, some of our Nuffies in the KL office were coming with me and I waited patiently as they arrived one by one.
Verneece was the first to arrive after me.Then Pinky, with her glam sunglasses.
And just when I thought she was looking glam and all that, Robb strolled in looking like a Hong Kong Movie Star. It almost looked as if he was walking in slow motion as he walked towards us.
Robb makes us other guys look bad.
It's the end of the year and at the end of each year we try to pull the Nuffnang team from all our offices in the region to hang out. Throughout the year, the Nuffies in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Penang, Melbourne and Manila offices correspond with each other a lot via phone or e-mails but because of the distance we don't often get to meet.
Hence this year end, we got all the Nuffies from the Penang and KL office to make a trip down together to meet up with the Nuffies in Singapore (all except some of our other Nuffies who had to stay in KL and Penang to man the fort while the rest of us are away). We thought of getting the Nuffies in Manila and Melbourne to meet up with us too but I guess the timing was a bit tough this time.
The Singaporean Nuffies planned an entire packed day for us. Shortly after we arrived, the Nuffies from the Penang office flew in and we all met up at the new Nuffnang office in Singapore. It was my first time in the new office of Nuffnang Singapore and it turned out to be a really cosy place.The Singapore office has something that none of our other offices have. They have a patio area where they have nice seats for people to chill and talk and even eat their lunch or something. I still prefer our KL office though but maybe it's because I'm just used to it.
When I asked some of our KL Nuffies if they prefered the Singapore office to the KL office they all said that they prefered the KL office. But when I asked the Singaporean Nuffies though they all said they thought the KL office was nice but they all still prefered the Singapore office.
So I guess everyone prefers the office they work out of.
Still... I could imagine myself working in the Singapore office though busying away on my own.
Heck, the Nuffies in Singapore look like they have as much fun as we do in Malaysia. Look at Clara for example, always smiling away at work!
Anyway after the quick visit to the Nuffnang Singapore office all of us went bowling at the Singapore Island Country Club. We booked four lanes for two hours which was just about enough time for me to realize how much I hate bowling.
Dammit I just totally suck at it.. like really really bad. Only on rare occassions do I even pass 100 points!
I wasn't alone though.
Little Miss Naughty here sucked as bad as I did.... haha!
So rather than focusing on my poor bowling skills I spent time taking pictures with some people in the team. The first one of course had to be with Ming.
Then while everyone was in a picture-taking mood, Firdauz managed to get a picture with some of the ladies in our team.
But alas, after two hours of camwhoring and throwing bowling balls into the longkang, we finally got out and took a walk around the club.
Then prepped ourselves to take an outdoor group photo. A group photo that I don't have yet but one of the Singapore Nuffies PROMISED he will send to us all. You know who you are! Don't forget ah!
Tomorrow the Singaporean Nuffies have another long day planned out for us. From visiting the Singapore Zoo in the morning, to paintballing in the afternoon and then off to watch a musical at night.
I guess I better get some sleep now. I'm gonna need it. I shall end with a photo we took this afternoon with some of the gents!
While the Nuffnang team has grown so much lately to include many many great and wonderful colleagues, these few men you see in this picture were among the earliest in the team. Each of them like brothers to me and Nuffnang would not have been the same without them.
PS: To the Nuffies in our KL office and Penang office that couldn't make it this trip: Raff, Wenny, Mellissa, Yat, Kelvin, Chee Ching and Wendy, we're missing you guys already! And to the Nuffies in Melbourne and Manila, next year we shall do a meet up ok?
