First Sundowner 2009

>> Thursday, August 27, 2009

Time: 5:30p.m. - 9:30p.m.
Venue: Company's west wing lobby & Business Center
Occasion: Employees Appreciation Sundowner 2009

5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Pre-dinner Cocktail at West Wing Lobby

7:30 p.m. onwards – DHL Band at West Wing Lobby (and more drinks)

Every year, the organization will organize several Sundowners/get-together dinners. This time, it was slightly grander than the past Sundowners. I reckon it was intended as a mini annual dinner since we don't have any annual dinners now.

The event was pretty nicely planned. There was free-flow of fizzy drinks & beer, plus cracker sticks for cocktail, & a sit-down table dinner as well.

Drinks & bread/cracker-sticks

The crowd at the cocktail

We opened up our largest meeting room for the event & it could house 50 tables :) I was quite surprised to see waiters & waitresses at the dinner. By the looks of it, it seems like the waiters for the night were from the Equatorial Hotel - even the menu's from the hotel...oooo...

Menu for the night's dinner

Each table was nicely decorated & all the dishes were actually served already. Quite disappointing...hahaha...I was wishing for some hot, served food! :P

The dinner table


We were served creamy & quite delicious mushroom soup as starters. I kinda enjoyed the soup (and I really love this photo as well!!)

Thick & creamy mushroom soup

All the dishes were served in a 'tray'. I thought that the dishes were VERY Malaysian...mostly Malay/Indian-style. It really makes me wonder how the 'mat sallehs' actually enjoy the dinner *shrugs* Erm, taste-wise, it was fantastic, but oh well, it's free food after all...

The dishes
Clockwise from top right: Lamb Kurma with Potatoes, Malay BBQ Chicken (Ayam Percik), Sauteed French Beans with Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Beef Goulash, Fried Fish Fillet with Spice Sweet Sauce, Vegetable Dalcha

Dessert was actually quite good :) It was served warm, & the pastry was just nice. The apple filling was tasty as well, with cinnamon in the right measurement to taste.

The interesting decoration

After the dinner, we moved on outside for a time of fellowship & music by the band :) They're pretty good....I left the company around 9:30pm for home. Oh, it was not too bad for a start of the weekend ;)
