i mentioned something about winning the most crap-tastic prize during the "lucky" draw at my ex-company's christmas party held last Wednesday.
well, let's start from the beginning.
i used to be part of this amazing little studio located in the east of Singapore, also known as IFS, full of quirky talented (and sometimes crazy) artists, designers and project managers :) and the parties we hold are beyond the norm, i think only design studios and creative companies can appreciate this kind of madness.
the christmas tree is a wonderful illustration of this strange quirkiness.
freaky halloween mask in place of the usual decorative star,
rubber boob (lolll dont expect much from a studio full of guys) as tree ornament,
and a rock band (or is it guitar hero?) guitar strapped to the tree.
i used to have this school girl figurine on my office desk, and came into office one fine morning to find my figurine a tranny with a ginormous **** complete with balls modelled with sculpey (something like plasticine) and stuck onto her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -___- such an insult to my $80 expensive sexy school girl figurine.
so WIW for the party, a very festive shade of red!
shoulder-padded dress in red from ,
paired it with ivory clutch from and my black heels from !
i totally want to get a new camera :((( i think my appetite for a good camera has grown, 4 months ago when i got the lx-3, i told myself that i'm "investing in a good camera so that i can use it for a long time" and now my heart is swayed after looking at the new micro 4/3rd camera systems like GF1 and EP1, they produce DSLR-esque images but without the bulk! it's still big but manageably so. hoooowwww. i wants it so bad -_-
two of my ex-colleagues both own one of the above-mentioned cameras and omg i didnt even feel like touching my LX3 at the party after i got to play with theirs and take pictures with them! sad sad.
images from the party taken with Ave's GF1. Ave, if you're reading this beware, i'm so gonna sneak up behind you one day and clobber your over the head before stealing your GF1 away... (or i might do that to Stan but he's way too tall...)
there was an awesome looking buffet spread!
and ave made these chock-full-of-icing-goodness christmas cookies, i was ambitious and took the gigantic snowflake one and almost couldnt stomach the whole of it...
two of my ex-colleagues just became parents not long ago, and their adorable babies were the centre of attention at the party :)
damn cute TTM! meet keinan and jaedon. heehee. they're both carbon copies of their daddies!
because we're an art studio, we have all kinds of privileges... like Wii/Xbox/PS3/arcade machines in the office and all
woa check out Mad's fingers go blur. must have been spamming those buttons! by the way Mad (on the left) is Jaedon's mummy. such a gorgeous pretty and young mother right?!
checking out stuff on Kendrick's PC.
keinan and mummy, and that's Chris playing with Keinan.
chit-chatting with the arty farts! designers Ben and Jasmine.
playing with Jaedon!
anyway. the evil people were trying to corrupt young Jaedon's mind! omg lor so terrible these people.
but Jaedon likes it!!!! tsk tsk. poor young soul getting tainted by the bad people around :(
this is Jaedon's daddy, the famous Artgerm also known as Stanley Lau. and he's holding the camera of my dreams wtf. EP1 i waaant youuuuuuu.
the camera takes such chio pictures la! dammit! i want one! say hello to Ave who owns this camera. pffttt.
Dot and i. and that 29 there? my blardi unlucky number :(
the DMD girls :))
random picture i tried to self-take. hey not bad! everyone's in the frame!
girl power! (which is totally rare in the studio.. it used to be just like, two girls, me and the admin.... thank God our numbers grew)
every year's christmas party has a traditional UN-lucky draw. it's called an UN-lucky draw because everyone gets a "prize" but in between all the coolsome prizes are slotted in really crappy prizes.. i remember last year, i was fighting to the end to draw for the top two prizes, one of which was an ipod shuffle (!!!) and i ended up with a winnie the pooh photo album instead, they're cruel like that..... i swear i almost cried omg! i was so near..... yet so far.....
this year's amazing prizes. a toy weapon set, a light sabre, cute little sketchbooks, 320gb HDDs, cool watches, pretty headphones, lomo cameras, a bag of toy plastic dinosaurs etc and etc....
i thought i was suay enough last year to get my winnie the pooh photo album.
make a guess what my lucky number got me this year.
bet you'd never guess it.
but the boys all had a good laugh over it...
cos i was the proud recipient of...
THE TOY WEAPONS/ARMOUR SET.
srsly how can i be so suay twice in a row?! two years leh!! let me win a good prize for once can?????
ok but i wasnt the only suay ones
LY got the bag of plastic dinosaurs... (good for learning dino anatomy they claimed)
and CO2 got a box of cotton buds and a nail clipper *slaps forehead* poor bugger attempts to slit his wrist with the edge of the cardboard packaging, lol.
my art directors are so cruel right :( every year they have a good laugh giving out all these prizes. wtf.
but not everyone is as suay as me lor... this JK won the top prizes for two years already! wtf last last year he won the nintendoDS and this year he got the pretty tokyo flash watch! why do some people have all the luck...
hai. sad :(
if next year i'm gonna get like a nose pick or something, i swear i'm not going to take part in the lucky draw anymore. i am so NOT lucky. boohoo.
people happy happy with their nice prizes. while i'm sulking there holding my toy armour set. FML FML FML.
and i REALLY wanna get an EP1/GF1.
SO NICE CAN. SO CHIO. I WANT X 100000000000.
ok other than the ridiculous prize i 'won', i had an awesome time catching up with all my colleagues whom i havent seen in so long :) totally miss all of them. i miss my studio life!!!!!! :( damn depressing.
on Christmas Day itself,
i had a movie date with the bf followed by our two-person steamboat dinner <3
lipsy v dress from , paired with clutch again (this is one versatile clutch!)
threw on my Dorothy Perkins shimmery shrug when i was cold in the cinema, but it looks kinda tai tai paired up like that huh.
i look damn fair in the picture man love it. IF ONLY I AM FAIR LIKE THIS.
as for AVATAR, if you haven't watched it, where have you been? 'nuff said. go watch it already.
the boy bought me the studded fringe bag i was lusting for the day before as a Christmas present :>
mmmm i love the studs and the grey and the fringe and everything, but but i still feel abit unsure about it cos it's hard to match? maybe i shoulda gotten the black one but grey's more special... whaddyall think?
thanks baby <3
