First day of work in the Niu year

I started work on Tuesday, the 9th day in the Year of the Ox. Coincidentally, my company’s Sports & Recreational Club chose the same day for the office CNY celebration. At about 9.30am, the distinct sound of clashing cymbals and Chinese drum was heard at the reception area. The lion dance troupe had arrived

The two lions danced and pranced around the reception area before splitting up – with one going into the sales area, and the other going into the marketing area

After completing their rounds on our floor, these two lions proceeded to the upper floor where the rest of the departments (finance, corporate affairs, HR, IS, medical) is located.

This was then followed by a scrumptious brunch for everyone.

Jazz - that's the convenience of a compact. I always bring it along in my handbag, for just in case.
