Planning a 200-pax D&D

[Meditrina 6th Clients Appreciation Dinner]

Planning & executing a Clients Appreciation Dinner of more than 200 pax is NO EASY job! Especially when the pre-planning and executing is a very much one-man show.

It also didn’t help that I had only attended ONE D&D in my entire life, and I didn’t even have to work but sat there and enjoy instead. Thankfully my colleagues helped me out with the powerpoint slides and logistics packing. That 5 months were no doubt stressful; it was also enriching & I realized my multi-tasking power is really superb haha!

That being said, I was glad that everything went on smoothly and I think my guests (the bloggers) enjoyed? Of course it can be done better, because apparently some clients think it wasn’t grand enough.. in terms of prizes.

I wish people can understand I was working on the entire program with a minimum budget! We ain’t some big company neh… ;-p

Some photos of that night’s program….

floral photobooth-01Tracy, Juliet & Keith were the earlier ones so we managed to get a few photos taken at the photobooth! I love the floral backdrop to match our “Floral & Nature” theme! Initially while choosing, I was still worried if it turns out too girly… but never mind cos it’s so beautiful!

Fabfoto Booth is one of the service providers with the LOWEST PRICE!

 photo 0353_zpsujooavgt.jpgThat’s me trying my best to be as chillax as I can on-stage! I borrowed this short short-skirt aka skorts from Celine because I didn’t want to wear the longer skirt I bought in the end. Then hor, got shorts inside I still damn scared i gao-geng (expose)! #conservative
