Christmas Party

I seriously think this will be the only Christmas party I attend this year. Just as well, I haven't really felt any sort of "Christmas spirit" or "Christmas cheer" this year so far. Other than the fact that I was reminded by the red cups from Starbucks at the beginning of November, and the increasing number of people on the streets doing their Christmas shopping. This is the first Christmas party at this company, and I must say that it was a bit of a disappointment. The food was quite sub-par (come on, you could do better than a cold tuna salad and a stir-fry veg dish with pieces of beef stuck in between), and the alcohol was lacking. Sure I was supposed to meet more people from work, but I'm still recovering from my stupid flu so I literally stayed for 30 minutes before calling it quits. Speaking of which, I'm still suffering from that flu I got last week before heading back to HK and it seems to be getting worse. It's not even that I'm not taking care of myself, I'm wearing so many layers I break a sweat just walking to work from the tube station. I just think that the stress and the work hours are having a serious effect on my immune system.. oh well, it's more flu medicine for me before going to bed!
