So tired since the company’s anniversary on Saturday. It was surprisingly quite enjoyable. I am not very good with crowds so I try to avoid crowds as much as I can.
Started the day early at 6 am. Need time to apply make up. I have not touched make up for ages!
I was glad I bought a dress even though it was so last minute. Was roped in to do reception and ushering at eleventh hour so.. dress, make up…is a must.
As we got to the event, there were already so many people. Hustling and bustling of activities and fun. Honestly the event organizer did a splendid job.
Registration was as per alphabetical order. Each person was given a ticket with removable stubs for lucky draw and door gift redemption.
Self conscious for wearing a long jubah or traditional robe, I was pleasantly surprised with compliments paid by so many colleagues and business associates. They never seen me in a skirt before. Lol
At least the purchase of the jubah is justified! The best part is they thought I must have spent a fortune on the jubah. Some asked if it’s from Jovian Mandagie’s collection. I said no. It only costs me Rm64. And they were all in shock. Lol.
I should not be telling them where I got my jubah.. otherwise I worry I might wear the same clothes with half of the fatties from office in our next company’s event!! Lol
Then funny thing happened. I was actually shocked that there were people didn’t even bother to wear make up to such grandiose event 😑.
Am not a big fan of make up but I think it’s a basic courtesy and manners to make yourself presentable when there’s a need.
Saw one HR girl wearing a long black dress without make up… and her usual red hoodie at work. If you are cold.. probably get a shawl la. If you hate make up, at least put some lipstick on.
Best part is.. the group comm manager herself didn’t even put on lipstick. She looked like she just got out from the hospital in a haste and just don on a baju kurung. Lol
Then there’s one butch in office.. instead of wearing jackets.. she wore cowboy boots, hats and all the cowboy get up. Hello? It’s glitz and glam theme.. not Wild, Wild West!
I came to realize how important it is to treat company’s event with respect even if you loathe attending one.
I guess I will make more effort for such events in future. I looked back to my rebellious younger days of wearing jeans to weddings and kinda regretted it.
