Before the party ended, the boss called to draw the raffle. My honey kept on telling me he is lucky with raffle. I told him I am not. So we were eager, waiting for the host to announce the winning ticket numbers. Then the winning ticket number for the first minor prize was called. The winner was Chinese guy. Next, the winning ticket number for the second minor prize was called. One of the wives got it, but it was not me. Then it was time to draw the winner for the major prize, a Nokia GPS. Everyone at the party wanted to win it, I know. The host called his girlfriend to draw the winning ticket number. At first she was stammering reading the numbers and read them incorrectly. My honey and I knew the last two digits of our tickets so he checked his first. He doubted the woman read the wrong numbers, he approached her to double check it. And he was lucky indeed! It was his ticket numbers and he got the prize, a Nokia GPS.
We had a free buffet dinner at Cozymel Restaurant. After we had our bellies full, we head to the party venue by a shuttle van. The place was simply decorated but full of surprises. I met my honey’s boss, colleagues, and his officemates’ wives too. The food was good and the drinks were awesome. The theme was “Las Vegas” party. What is the first thing you have in mind when you think of Las Vegas? Casino! Right. There are plenty of casino games at the party-Bingo, Craps, Rollet and others. I played Bingo. My honey won it twice. I was a bit frustrated because I bought three cards and he had only one. But I continued playing. Finally I won the last game (the fifth game)! There was no money involved in the games at the Christmas party. Everybody was given free chips. Then all the remaining and winning chips were changed to coupons for the raffle draw.
Employees who attended the party got their souvenirs. It was the first Christmas party I attended here and I tell you I had so much fun. Oh I love attending parties!
