Work Hard. Play Hard.

Last night I was at a party with my colleagues. It was fun.

Everyone who’s anyone in our account was there, from our DVP to a selection of agents. For some reason, I wasn’t in a photo-taking mood hence the grabbed IG photo. The venue was full, the booze was consumed, and we partied until 5AM (I think). Most of them were there since 11PM, but I only arrived at 130AM, knowing that most would already be drunk by then. :)

Partying all night long has never been my thing. I never do body shots! Never! And it was the theme all night long. There are probably some compromising photos of some people out there, but there’d be none of me. I was (as I always am) behaved. :) I didn’t think I would, but I actually enjoyed this, I guess that’s inevitable when you’re with people you actually liked to be around with. I did grab the mic to sing Gabrielle’s Out of Reach though. That’s totally uncharacteristic of myself because that was no videoke. I swear I wasn’t drunk, although beer was never really my alcohol of choice…

We should have more parties like this for the team. Builds a relationship outside of just work. More fun events make for a livelier workplace too.  This week was event week, as it seems. Just the other day we also had our monthly recognition program where the management team dressed up for the awards!

It was fun seeing the boys in formal jackets and with ties too. Even the boss, who even as he usually came in in jeans already was a certified heartthrob, was all dressed up. Some agents also were in corporate attire, those who didn’t know wished they came in prepared too. So we’re looking forward to doing this monthly. Which means I need more clothes! In the photo you’ll see me wearing my black Forever21 dress under a b/w floral cover up from My Curves bought through ZaloraPH. I’m glad my first online purchase of clothing wasn’t a bad decision. Hehe. That’s another thing I love bout Zalora – Plus sizes! If you still haven’t signed up and shopped at ZaloraPH, do so now and use my code ZBAPMzr for a good discount. :)

The mood at work has been fun and lively lately, which balances with all the hard work it takes to get our numbers moving (and it has significantly moved this month). We’re surely in for a lot more challenges, but things are generally looking positive. Here’s hoping it stays so. :)
