Genesys Lo-Hei Lunch with Partners

I did not attend the Genesys Chinese New Year (CNY) lunch on February 3. I did nurture apprehensions of me being dubbed anti-social, but it was a staff event, most of whom I meet almost every day.

I made up for it today by attending the Genesys Lo-Hei lunch with our Singapore business partners at Grand Mandarina, a fine-dining restaurant.

This being the first Friday after Ash Wednesday (Feb. 10), I wanted to avoid meat. Also, I am not accustomed to going beyond my comfort zone.

It was a good experience – I got to meet a few of my former colleagues with the companies they represent being Genesys partners.
