First Time

There are many first time on a nite.

This is my first outing with my colleagues. My first time to Dempsey Hill. My first time tasting Cosmopolitan. Its a good outing and chill out session.

Dempsey Hill is also a nice place to chill out. thou its a little inconvenient.

We went to one of the outlet and ordered our very first Cosmopolitan. My colleagues wanted to try this drink as she always see the actress ordered this in a show. She has been practicing ordering so it will sound more natural.

When the drinks arrived, we toasted to each other and take a slip. Hmm... its very nice and very lady.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

A Cosmopolitan is a cocktail made with vodka, Triple Sec, cranberry juice, and fresh-squeezed lime juice or sweetened lime juice. Informally, it is referred to as a Cosmo.

My colleague had urged me to try Lychee Martini too. Its nice but too sweet for my taste. We toasted, cheered and bitched about the office. After a few round we decided to call it a day.

Its a good few First Time in a day.

Oktoberfest at One Rochestor

Let me update someting about my Company's recent event, thou its 2 months ago.

On 31st August 2007, our decided to celebrate 3oth Anniversary in conjunction with Customers' Appreciation Nite. Since we are the German Company, we decided to do alittle different this year, we are holding our very first Oktoberfest.

As part of the committee, I am a little excited plus a little worry as this is my very first event in this company. I am having sleepless nites worrying about the weather, if everything will go smoothly, if everything is taken care of etc.

Thou there are little hiccups during planning, and during the show, overall, its quite successful, most of the guests enjoyed themselves.

We hold our Oktoberfest at One Rochestor.
Its a very nice cosy place. If you want a relax and nice place to chill down, this is very good choice.

I arrived before 6.30pm and get the reception ready and make sure everyting is in place. Slowly our staffs and customers arrived. They are first served with specially made Mocktail which is blue colour which is the colour of our theme.
The colour of Oktoberfest is normally Blue and White, which is the colour of the Bavaria Flag. If you wana know more of Oktoberfest refer to

After our MD speech, the food and drinks are served. The guests get to eat Authentic German food and free flow of Beers. Everyone start to relax in a corner and enjoy the band.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

The event is supposed to end at 10pm, but many of the staffs had enjoyed themselves and continue to drink on. Some even got drunk and vomited, most of them are half sober. After all the guests had left, I quickly sneak off around 12am because some of the colleagues planned to sabo me.

Its a tiring nite but a good one. My spirit is still high even after a shower and on my bed. After so many sleepless nite, I finally can have a good nite sleep.
