Fabulously Peranakan

From colorful kebayas to exciting jogets, NUS Libraries’ staff got a taste of being fabulously Peranakan for an afternoon. On 8 Jan, the library had our annual hi-tea at the Hotel InterContinental and many staff took the opportunity to doll up like nyonyas!

With games, good food and lucky draws, it was a wonderful opportunity for staff to let loose and enjoy each other’s company. We not only saw a very different side to our colleagues but to our bosses too! These candid moments are indeed hard to come by and should be treasured.

During this event, the library also took the opportunity to recognize staff who have been serving with us for many years as well as those who have exhibited exemplary behavior at work. Good job, dear colleagues!

We are certainly looking forward to the next annual event, which I believe, will be an extra special one. More on that, in a later posting!
