Working in Perth

Last month in October, I had the chance to work out of the Perth office for 2 weeks! It was really nice experiencing the work life there and this post will be about my company's office in Perth!

The office is very near the famous London Court.

There are cafes along the street and it is so nice to sit there and have a cup of coffee.

The office is in Calibre House on St George's Street which is sort of like the Orchard Road of Singapore. Super atas and much nicer than my office in Singapore. So sad. 
Why isn't our office here as nice as the one in Perth... WHY!!!! (; ̄Д ̄)

There is a nice reception area which is huge.

This cubicle was where I sat for 2 weeks!

The pantry is huge. A few times bigger than the one in Singapore.

The other side of the pantry..

There is a reading corner where people exchange their books!

Also a 'shop' where you can browse through and place a order on the order chit. They not scared people steal the items one ah!!

Balloons along the corridor cos it's Halloween week!

There was a Rugby World Cup match one day and a lot of the staff came in the office wearing their favourite team's jersey!

They also brought lots of food to party in the pantry! Wah!

Every Friday is TGIF in the office! At around 3pm, the manager will bring out the alcohol and they will all gather around and chit-chat, chillax... The manager is very friendly and he always come by to ask me not to stress myself and not work too hard because I always got my 'work face' on. Hahaha! He also asked me to take pictures of their alcohol and show it to my colleagues in Singapore to make them jealous.

It is a racing day and everyone was watching the race on TV! Before noon!!

There's alcohol, more alcohol.. Party time!

There's also cheese platters! So happening lah!

One day I went to the park which is just across the road for lunch with my colleague Ann! She usually work from home too but she came in the office to say hi to me and have lunch with me one day. Her husband is my ex-colleague from my previous job and she was the one who introduced me this job in CWT! She moved to Perth with her husband and they are both living and working there now. So relaxing lah.. the weather is nice and people are just relaxing on the grass having lunch. 

On other days during lunch I will just walk around and see what's good. Most of the days I buy sushi cos it's convenient and really yummy. And I mostly eat Asian food during lunch. Hahahahaha!

 There's a food stall called Newton Circle. Hahahahaha!

 Every Thursday night is late night shopping!

 There is also a food bazaar every Thursday night!

I enjoyed my 2 weeks stay in Perth and it was fun working out of the Perth office! Tabby kept asking me to move to Perth permanently to stay with her.. very tempting!!!! (≧∇≦*)
