HCK staff didn’t need to dream of a white Christmas anymore, as it became a reality at the lounge of Wisma HCK decorated with faux snow and white bells. Some of the staff who joined the Christmas party stayed true to the theme by turning up in their best white shirts and lovely white dresses.
Executive Chairman Tan Sri Clement Hii kicked off the evening with a short, thought-provoking speech to close 2018 and to begin 2019. The next line-up was the presentation of Long Service Awards to Mr Mak Ngan Hoe, Ms Cheng Sweet Chiang, Ms Dona Margaret and Ms Chan Yoke Lin.
To give the evening a more light-hearted feel, some casual and fun awards were also given out. They were the HCK Joker Award, Male Fashionista Award, Female Fashionista Award, Most Cheerful Award and Best Dressed Award. A few HCK staff went all out to vie for the last one resulting in Mr Lum Wykit as the fortunate winner.
Jamaica Blue was the official caterer. As usual, they did not disappoint: the dishes were delectably apt for Christmas and their buffet line décor was spot on. A roast lamb was in order too as a Western celebratory meal would not have been complete without it.
The most anticipated part of the Christmas party was, of course, the lucky draw. A whole range of interesting prizes were lined up from as humble as scented candles up to the grand prize RM1000 cash cheques. The draw would not have been possible without the generous contributions from the many suppliers and vendors who maintained close business relations with our various business divisions and departments.
Since not all of the 150-odd invitees turned up, there were more than enough lucky draw gifts to go around. At the end of the celebration, everyone returned home with arm-fulls of gifts and wide-eyed with joy.
