It’s Dependents’ Day again!
It is an annual (at least if the budget allows it) company activity. The main purpose of which is to let the employees’ dependents or family have a look and feel of where their family member works at, and of course give them a great memory and a sense of being home and being a family in our organization.
Here’s a quick look back last year : Dependents’ Day 2011
After the usual stressful hoopla/turmoil/pandemonium on the registration guidelines, all were set for October 31 Trick or Treat highlight.
This year, more and more departments are getting into the spirit.
There were roughly 5 coffins that I saw. Here’s one with a twist.
While the decorating brings out the child in us and builds the excitement we feel for the annual event, what is still most joyful to watch, are the faces of the children having the time of their lives.
What was most memorable for me this year was the “Seats” guys’ antics. They scared the bejeezus out of some kids. They wore scary masks and made really spooky noises and crawled on the floor when the kids got to their place. There were four groups of kids touring the building and every time a group got to their area, the shrieking, screaming voices can surely be heard. It was all good fun. So far, we did not receive any complaints from outraged parents.
See the kid on white shirt? Yep! Terrified! Good thing she got over it pretty quick. I was telling them it was all play-acting.
Can’t resist to include this cute baby bug.
And of course, here’s my two girls and their friend.
It was a satisfying feel good event as usual. Till next year!
P.S. Some more pics. 🙂
