Taipei Year End Banquet

January 14, 2016

While I was away at home I got a message asking if I wanted to go to the Taipei Year End Banquet to receive my award for Employee of the Year. I was unsure at first because I knew it would eat up my whole Saturday, but in the end I agreed.

I got all dressed up and headed to the HSR station to meet the group of facility that were going to go to Taipei together. When we arrived in Taipei we hopped on a bus and went to the World Trade Center. We walked into this huge auditorium and were there for three hours watching people receive their awards and perform. Amanda was in one of them and it was so cute. She did an excellent job!

By the time the awards ceremony was over I was soooo hungry. We went into a banquet hall and spent the rest of the time eating and drinking. That part of the event was great. It was fun, we could chat, and people were winning prizes. It felt like one giant party.

Sometime after 8 we left and went back to the HSR station. I made my way to the local train, and at 11:10pm I was finally heading home.

It was a longggg day, but I am glad I went. I represented myself and got an award I had worked hard to earn. When my head finally hit the pillow I fell fast asleep.
