Etihad Airways Sports & Social Special Dinner

18 January 2016

I am seldom appreciated at work. It’s not that I crave recognition but it feels nice to be appreciated once in a while. My love language is words of affirmation and I haven’t received a lot of that at work.

So when I get emails like this, even my anti-social self can’t resist the invitation.

I enjoy being part of our company’s sports & social team, especially our football events. It’s a world I completely feel comfortable in – no high heels, no make-up, no stingy people.

Last December, I was given the privilege to host Etihad’s 2nd World Aviation Football Cup. I worked the microphone tirelessly from morning ’till evening for 2 days in a row. I love football so much, I didn’t mind losing my voice afterwards.

Our “thank you” dinner was held at the pool area of the Abu Dhabi City Golf Club.


Fancy eh.


I arrived early so I get to pick the most anti-social table. Yey!


Shared my table with friends from the Etihad Men’s Football Team. Most of them couldn’t make it 😦


I couldn’t get a proper photo of the full buffet, but here’s the dessert section…


It was a short night of acknowledgements and tributes. Thank you Etihad Sports & Social for re-affirming our worth as players and volunteers.


“Everyone wants to be appreciated, so if you appreciate someone, don’t keep it a secret.”
