day 2201 – picture wall

i learned some new today, that my twinning photo from last halloween hangs outside the human resources office. i don’t visit downstairs often, but i was bored after lunch and decided to take a trip down. the wall features past office culture events like halloween, christmas party, summer barbecue, and other hd community events. things have changed a lot since that picture, some good and some bad

day 1967 – yankee swap

another year pass by and it comes time for our design christmas lunch and yankee swap in the boardroom. lunch was served with a combination of pasta, salad, cake and sparkling juice. we work hard all year round so it’s good to end the year off by getting the whole department together where we don’t talk about work issues. i got to know a few design people a little better over the last little while. i took home a gift very suitable for me – an organic back wrap microwaveable for both cold and heat aromatherapy. now this is a ticket to continue to go wild with my sports and activities

day 1964 – after party shenanigans

the design team carried the christmas party tradition of hosting the after party. just like every year, this is where the real party begins and wild things happen. one of the few occasions i would let loose and be downing vodka, makgeolli and soju. i had a few rounds and was somehow involved in wrestling activities. the drunken people were hilarious and made many lasting scenes. it was a really fun night chilling and drinking with this group. it wasn’t until 3am that i returned back to my own room. so many good memories but whatever happens in harrison stays in harrison

day 1963 – gr8 party

rushed out of work to attend my second company christmas party at harrison. one of the few occasions i will dress up plus wear heels and accessories. same as last year, there it was buffet style with open bar, dance floor, speeches, photo booth and door prizes. i wad happy with my door prize and a gift card from the trivia. what i least expected was an award for receiving the most teamwork star performers of 2018. all i was worried about was tripping as i go up on stage to retrieve it. went back up to my hotel room and laid on my bed expecting to be called to the party room

day 1585 – christmas with company

it’s not often, but sometimes i try and could look quite classy too. it’s that time of the year to dress up for the annual harrison hotsprings company christmas party. the party was catered buffet with an open bar. came out having enjoyed good food, lots of photos and a nice big door prize. the dinner party was just the beginning; the after party was where the main event was at. perfect time to put on the party hat to join in on the games and the shots of soju that came with. it was a good night of partying that didn’t settle down until 3am. i’ll be tired and maybe even hungover, but i’ll enjoy myself to the fullest

attending my┬ásecond christmas party in as many days. walking into a larger crowd only knowing one person, but didn’t feel the awkwardness because everyone was welcoming. mo and i got there just in time for the start of dinner and a┬ácounter top was already filled with food. there was a large selection to choose from including of veggies, meats and desserts to choose from. i didn’t have the stomach room to try all the dishes, but of all the dishes i tried, salmon was my favourite

day 859 – exec christmas

vdl playoffs didn’t exactly go the way i wanted. i was very disappointed with one of the mistakes i made and really wished i could take back. bottom line is i didn’t come up with that clutch play that quite possible could have rewritten the series. in the end the team that made the clutch plays deserved the win a little more. it was a great season nonetheless and we will come back stronger next season to fight for the title that’s eluded us twice. post playoffs christmas party for the execs to close out season 20. tonight, i learned that i am a terrible blind drawer, but i am okay with it as long as i can still draw with my eyes open
