Reaching for the Stars: a night to remember
Wednesday, May 16, 2007
The night started to come to life when Tonky broke the ice with his reknown performance, which invited laughs and claps. As a matter of fact, Tonky and his assistant dominated the fun and game part. I like the way they get people to come to the stage.
It was a night of white shirts, tie, and black gown. And as befit a reception for champions, buffet dinner with a nice cooling fruit punch as appetizer and freeflow of beer plus a bonus of several bottles red wine were served with style. It was a good selection of food, a combination of Indonesian and western cuisine. I didn't bother with the ikan asam pedas, gado-gado and stir-fried vegetables, but focused primarily on the tender steak and cheese cake. Other cakes were also nicely made. The standard fruit platter was also available for those who were on a diet (which I failed to see that evening!). The quantity was enough for everybody to eat overfluously. And all were smiling. I didn't notice tonnes of leftovers, but such is expected from a four-star resort operator.
Reaching for the Stars: care for detail
The Committee of the executive bonding was really reaching for stars. I have mentioned the beautiful invitation they created. From it you can already tell that the theme of the event was black, gold, and the stars. And these were reflected that evening, with flying balloons in black and gold, with the stars hanging under them. In case you didn't know, they brought a balloon filler from Tanjung Pinang just for this occasion.On each table there was a programme card. The programme card was well written, with ornaments following the theme.All over the four walls and the main door, golden stars will greet you. They even had the name tags to indicate our sitting arrangement on each table on a star. And if you didn't notice it, in-between the buffet, at the base of the flower vases, again a star was shining.
Decoration wise, thumb's up up for you guys. It looked professional, it felt professional. And it should be, as you have started the preparation as far back as February, when I met you all.

Reaching for the Stars: a prelude to perfection
