Company farewell dinner

Posted by Dawn at Friday, January 06, 2006
Tonight, there was a company farewell dinner for the next batch of engineers going back to Singapore which includes US. We would be leaving soon and so, there was a get together at a seafood restaurant with all the technicians, engineers and their families. There were about 40 of us.

We were in a room where it was buffet.The food was not as nice because it was not individual order, it was mass cooking. The pasta was soggy and the crabs and prawns were over cooked. It tasted ok but it was just disappointing as we expected better. But I still try to enjoy whatever I had.

Salynn, Anthony's girlfriend was there. I met her once when we were in Knoxville, Tennessee. Now, she is here again for a longer time till Feb when Anthony goes back. Salynn is a very bubbly and humourous person to be with. There were kids in the room and they were running around and making loud noises. I found it cute while some colleagues found them irritating. I can understand...

We left right after we finished eating.

The amazing thing that happened during dinner was that CT's boss, Bill Skelding said grace before everyone started the buffet. I was pleasantly surprised as Cathy, Bill's wife told me before that he never does professes his faith as a Christian and for him to say grace in front of all the colleagues and Muslim technicians, I was happy for him.
