Ms. Sudan joined our Housekeeping Department on 15 June 1999 (wow, more than 13 years ago!) and she will be retiring at the end of this month. A farewell dinner was hosted at All Seasons Restaurant last night to honour her for her contributions to Traders Inn. The dinner was attended by Heads of Departments and colleagues from the Housekeeping Department. Nowadays, it's very difficult to find such a loyal and dedicated staff and she will be missed! Officially, she is the first colleague to retire and we hope she will be the last! For more photos, click here.

We attended Chloe and Lance's wedding at the Manggis Mall Ballroom last night and ironically there were no pictures of me as I was busy taking pictures of my colleagues! Edgar, the Master of Ceremony, did a great job with his humour and wits and Pei Pei, Brunei's very own singer, as usual was fantastic! Anyway, congratulations to the newlyweds and we enjoyed the programmes that was prepared for the guests last night.
