When it’s time for lunch – ya either come to the age old question,
and 15 whole minutes (if not more) will be spent throwing that question back and forth to each other and eventually coming to a decision.
But thanks to Shirley Soo, the Deputy President of the Malaysian Association of Professional Secretaries & Administrators (MAPSA), I was extended an invitation to join a Power Lunch session at Hilton PJ.
Just a lil introduction, MAPSA was established in 1968, previously known as Secretaries’ Society Malaysia (SSM) & is a member of the Association of Secretaries and Administrative Professionals, Asia Pacific (ASAAP) which includes members from Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Malaysia, Taiwan, Pakistan, Japan, Sri Lanka, Brunei, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Bangladesh. Now that’s international, yo!
I noticed that the attendees of this Power Lunch were all members of the corporate ladder. This includes personal assistants, executive secretaries, administrators and office managers of large Multi National Corporations (MNC) from Public Bank, Motorola, International School KL (ISKL) together with their bosses.
Appreciating all the bosses around the world
Congrats yo 🙂
He also introduced us the latest model of HP printers
Whilst lunch was served and more mingling was rapidly ongoing at all tables, we were also entertained by a exotic fusion dance by the students of Adithya Tamil School. They concocted a rather dope combination of Bollywood and Modern dances! 🙂
The finale came and goshhh we were astonished by the enormous portion of the Hong Kong style fried rice which was served! Ohmy. Even the guys at my table raised their eyebrows
Pictures never do things justice – my aforementioned description
of ‘enormous portion’ would pass off as hyperbolic
but ya gotta see it for real to believe me!
and rubbing our bellies with glee.
A very good effort by MAPSA to tighten the bond between bosses and their secretaries/PAs/assistants alike!
Seated opposite me were these 3 ladies above, Ching Ai from Public Bank, Liane Lim from AIA and Daisy Fernandez from Salcon Engineering Bhd.
Lady Luck must’ve been on TC Mok’s side as this Business Development Consultant for United BC Team Pvt. Ltd went home proudly with that box!
Martin & I kinda blocked one of the sponsors
so Shirley was kind enough to send me a photo
which I’ve put below
Thanks for the lovely afternoon!
