Urban Party High Tea @ Atrium Cafe, Sunway Pyramid (7 November 2009)

by Julie Yee

From the usual annual buffet dinner held over the last 20 odd years, it was time for a change. It was not easy finding a big place and a conducive environment without comprising on the quality of food to host more than 400 employees to a Hi Tea party. Finally we opted for the Atrium Cafe inside the Sunway Pyramid, with many awards to its name. No wonder the crowd swelled to over 430 AARSC members and their families all clad in their best suites with the theme colors: Red & Black.

Besides the usual Initiative, Innovative and Dedication awards to deserving employees, there were also the Academic awards to children of AAR employees. There were games like Kotak Beracun, Quiz, Lumba makan, Treasure Hunt, guessed the number of peanuts and selections of the best dressed male and female. With more than a hundred of tempting and delicious dishes and desserts, it was difficult to control the crowd. Before the Sports Club president, Mr. Sim and Advisor, Dr. Kee could deliver their well-planned speech, hungry and excited members made a beeline to the sumptuous spread of food. It was all hell broke loose!. The speech can wait…

By 4.00 pm. the happy crowd had quickly disappeared into the shopping mall to look for bargains, watch ice-skating while the younger ones headed to the karaoke outlet to sing their hearts out.
