Raya With The CEO

It's been a week since I last blogged. Been busy... busy... busy...! I thought of updating something over the long weekend, but with the little boy hovering around me all the time, I just couldn't find the time.

Two main events happened last week. One was our hari raya open house at the office, and two was meeting up with Mdm Tai Tai.

I guess by know you should know where I work already, so there's no need to hide. Just don't let my boss know what I've been doing behind my PC when work is not loaded. Hee.. hee.. I don't want to lose my job!

Beginning last year, it has been our company’s practice to do raya open house, department by department. So, for the past two weeks, we’ve had at least one open house each day and that means free lunch.

Personally, I think it’s a waste of money. The company could very well organize one big open house for everyone instead of having more than 10 over two weeks. The invitees are the same, makanan pun almost the same, cuma the concept maybe different. Hence, every time we go to the different department’s open house, we are bound to meet the same people, floor by floor.

This year, our raya concept is Ghazal Spa. What?? Well, it’s Balinese concept with Ghazal playing in the background. Kinda weird, isn’t it? But it’s our CEO’s request, so buat je lah. My office is sharing the same floor as the CEO’s office, so every raya, our open house will be the most attended.

It was quite fun this year, very meriah. There were lots of food and lots of people. The Ghazal made it more happening. At first, the CEO’s secretary wanted to invite Jamal Abdillah to sing with the ghazal (oh my! I’d surely die!), but since it was a very last minute decision, Aziz Bakar said, he could not make it. If not, memang I akan pengsan kat situ! I’m a very big fan! Elok pun dia tak datang..

We also had 4 masseurs from Samsara Spa attending to those who wanted a shoulder rub. Mana nak dapat free massage at people's open house, kan? Only at Celcom (so, port at Celcom people, come on!) There were also lucky draw prizes which include free holiday for two and RM500 cash voucher. I, of course, did not win anything.

Here are some photos from our raya open house. So, nak datang tak next year?

Madam Tai Tai said...

BJ, wah so happening one your office's open house! Got massages by professional masseurs (lelaki pun dapat massage ke?) and kugiran ghazal... I'm sure kalau ada pertandingan 'The Best Open House in Celcom', your floor punya depts pasti menang.

Btw, you know when I first saw the pic of your boss (not Dato' but the tall gelap guy) I terpikir Mr. B!! Hee..hee..

MrsNordin said...


Nasib baik I tak tersedak! Hee... hee... I was sipping tea when I read your comment! Ada ke teringat Mr B... tch... tch... tch... tidak!!

MrsNordin said...

Hi Ezza,

Sorry, kena reply Mdm Tai Tai punya komen dulu sebab dia telah mengimbas kisah cinta lama I dulu.... hee.. hee..!

Terima kasih! Tu lah, siapa suruh berenti... eh, tapi Mdm Tai Tai pun tak kerja, tapi masih mantain!

And I hope your ke'boringan' dah terubat and Astro u dah ok! Bye!

Insyaallah... we'll meet up one of these days and then we'll know for sure! Take care!

U ada facebook?

MrsNordin said...


Kerja kosong? Jadi penyanyi ghazal, nak? :)

MrsNordin said...


Ooohhh.... ya ke? Kisahnya.... Tak sangka, kan? What a small world!

Have you been to our office before? If you have, then perhaps I've bumped into you at the waiting area! Hee... hee... tapi tak kenal!

MrsNordin said...


Our CEO pun buat kat office je... tak pernah pulak dia jemput kita datang ke rumah dia. I guess, at home, is his private function.

Itulah, dah lama tak blog sebab sibuk dengan macam2 hal. I pun tak sempat nak baca your blog. Will do so later when I'm more free.

Btw, Norita called me last week, asking about the free Blackberry from Celcom. It was nice talking to her...

Take care, Busymum!

MrsNordin said...

Auntie Yan,

Our CEO boleh tahan hansome. Silap2 tengok, macam Dato' Shake. Suara pun lebih kurang sama. Garau gitu!

He's into music, and is a good drummer. That's why dia panggil ghazal to our open house.

Manis? Hee.. hee... thanks! Kata orang, I "makan gambar". In real life, tak de lah manis mana... biasa je...

MrsNordin said...

My stf junior,

I understand... we all pun ada banyak open house kat office ni. Today is the last day.

Facebook? Ada, tapi tak update. You can contact me using my e-mail: noorhaya@celcom.com.my.


kay_leeda said...


Wahh...1st time jumpa open house ader urut-urut. Not bad of an idea. Boleh diusulkan ker top management in my office.

So, you are with Celcom? Huummppp, got some friends working there too. One of them was my tution mate. I was told she's there. Her name is Azwan Ambrose. Masih ada ka??

MrsNordin said...


Azwan has left quite a while ago. Dispute with her boss. She's now on her own, I think, taking care of her family's business. And she's doing well, I heard.
