Christmas dinner at Mac

I accompany Rick to his company's Christmas dinner at Mac's Brewery last night. I still remember before Mac's Brewery came to life, it used to be an abandoned old building standing tall by the waterfront with broken glasses all over. It was a sight that you just couldn't miss strolling along the waterfront.

Anyway, prior to the dinner, we mingled around over some drinks on the deck, overlooking the beautiful harbour. The weather was calm and warm. It was a perfect evening. I finally met the people whom I heard a lot of, either from Rick or from my colleagues. Rick and I are in the same industry you see, so we have a lot of mutual colleagues/ex-colleagues. It is a small industry afterall.

The dinner started at 7pm sharp. We got ourselves settling down comfortably at one of the tables. We were served with beautiful luscious salmon entree followed by a buffet dinner and then scrumptious chocalate cake and Christmas pudding. The food was good, ambience was pleasant and it was a lovely night.

i missed my company's xams party few days ago :( Wanted to go but don't want to spend money to buy a costume that fits the theme (which was flapper, ganster/charleston dance). Stupid theme right...sounds more like halloween. Anyway, i love your dress!!!

l b:
Thanks! It's an pretty old piece. Hehehe

liwan:
Oh, that's quite an unusual theme for Christmas. Most of the theme parties/functions that require me to spend money on the dressing, I'll pass. Hehehe

xmas is big here comparing to Malaysia, but not as big as in Europe loh. People here celebrate as normal lah, you know, xmas trees, xmas rush hour, xmas pressies, carols, church activities and all companies will have their own xmas dinner/function to celebrate too. In short, it is very busy prior to xmas, all restaurants booked out and lots of dinners to attend lah. Then hor, on the xmas day, it is dead quiet. Nothing open, nothing at all except cinemas.
