So the annual dinner has passed. I was in all white, only the shoes were black. How was it? It was ok.Surprisingly I didn’t feel scared at all. The last time I had to handle such event was when I was in secondary school, for the Form 5 farewell dinner. That was more than 10 years ago. Time flies.
The crowd was great. My jokes were spot-on. There was once when I embarassed myself when I tried to perform a magic trick, but I covered it all up by saying “I just wanted to teach you guys how to do it so that you can entertain other people in the future! Haha”. They were very supportive. I had to rearrange a few programs on my own because of the time factor. I really hate it when some people just add in changes for their personal satisfaction without informing the committee. Time people! Time is of the essence!
Our COO, CEO, HoDs were pleased. The games were fun. The live band was great. They played musics which in my opinion went really well with the mood of the night. I still remember when I said these words on the mic after one session, “Sedap kan lagu-lagu yang diorang main? Saya rasa la kan lagu-lagu tadi, kalau anda datang dengan isteri, rasa nak peluk cium isteri tu, kalau datang dengan suami, nak tengok mata dia lama-lama, kalau single…hmmm..nyesal!” The CEO’s wife, laughed and amongst the crowd some were saying , “Eleh emcee ni, cakap lebih..*laughter*!”. It was all in good fun. No personal attacks.
The night ended as planned, on time, the committee seemed pleased with how I handled myself, the crowd. To top it all off, I was given the King of the Night title. I know of the program but I didn’t expect that the emcee would be choose-able too. No wonder when I asked one of the committee members where were the results for the king and queen of the night so I could announce it, and everybody could go home, they said somebody else would handle that part. In a way I was happy. But to be honest, these past few days I don’t know how and what to feel. In front of people I was putting on a different mask. But I would save that for a different entry. This entry was supposed to be fun. *slaps myself*
p/s: I’ll update this very same entry when I find any pictures which I consider as bearable. LOL.
Enjoy, one of the songs which prompted me to come up with the “Sedap kan lagu-lagu yang diorang main? Saya rasa la kan lagu-lagu tadi, kalau anda datang dengan isteri, rasa nak peluk cium isteri tu, kalau datang dengan suami, nak tengok mata dia lama-lama, kalau single…hmmm..nyesal!”
Also, I just realised that I am tired as heck whilst typing this.
