Last Friday we had the End of Year Party of the company I work for.
I really have to say, I have seen very nice parties of this kind over the years, but this one did beat them all.
For those that didn’t want to use own means of transportation we were taken we buses from Hoofddorp, where the company is located, tot the Jade Kade in Amsterdam. There the very luxury boat Ocean Diva Futura was waiting for us (just aside the Rainbow Warrior of Greenpeace…. Darn, I didn’t take a picture of that!).
The Limousine parked in front of the Ocean Future Diva gave the opportunity to make some very nice pictures.
When everyone was aboard the boat did take off to sail us around the IJ. The subject of the evening the Oscar Nominations. The atmosphere was right from the start good, The music played by a rather good band surely added to that.
One could drink whatever one wanted. And when I heard my colleague Mark order Cola Vieux I was thinking by myself that it was very long ago I had that, so I switched for the rest of the evening to that.
All evening very tasteful snacks were served around. Apart from the snacks there was also possible to get some very tasteful Asian food, which I really loved.
There were many ways to enjoy your time. One could gamble a bit by playing Black Jack and games alike. And the “hairdressers” to do a complete makeover and turn someone in a complete film personality.
People was dancing, chatting and having fun. I really enjoyed it, but yet there were so many faces unknown to me.
Not only the smokers were happy with the open deck where they could go to. I also enjoy the fresh air there and some of the great views to be seen there. Harbor areas by night are awesome
End of the evening Oscars were giving to a number of people is a diversity of categories… as the one looking most as film personality… the biggest flirt and so on .
One thing…. This year I was rather casual dressed (blazer on jeans), next year it will be more fitting to the event.
