Pics from the Standard Charted Bank’s Chinese New Year dinner which took place last night at the Manggis Ballroom at Hua Ho Manggis Mall. Guest of Honour was YB Pehin Lim, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade II. The turnout was fantastic with many familiar faces coming all the way from KB.

There was a surprise performance by key team members of the Bank who presented their rendition of a funny Hokkien song entitled, “Na si wa uu chee pa ban” which roughly translated means “If I had a million bucks!”

Only one word for the photography – Excellent!

Was good to see you (and the rest of the crew) there last night. It was a long drive for us but well worth it.

Al: hehe and the same to you buddy!

ivfdad: Thank you, the lighting at the venue was wreaking havoc on my camera’s white balance which resulted in probably a less than 50% keepers rate πŸ™
Yeah, it was great seeing you and missus too! Twice in a month too! heheh!

Eleanor: that she is E… that she is… πŸ˜‰
