PhotoHunt theme : Gathering/End

Appetizer - Chinese Cold Dish in restaurant during our year-end company lunch

As year 2012 is coming to an end, I received several invitations to year end gatherings organised by companies, associations and non-profit organizations.

Potluck @ Mountbatten
After a busy day at work, I rushed home to prepare a dessert for a Potluck Party organised by a voluntary organization. I was delighted at the vast array of food the other volunteers prepared. For years,  these kind souls have generously dedicated their time and money for the less privileged in our community.  
 
I am looking forward to my last celebration party in year 2012 at the Marina Bay Countdown. :)
