The “Last” Poem

Filed under: DEETEE, Poem, Revenue — delephant @ 7:48 am

I guess Cheah must have been tired of waiting for another hotel to host lunch! So he says his good byes thru this poem. 🙂  As usual enjoy his unique sense of humor.


With so much happening,
And a few people leaving,
The TIME is coming,
Perhaps we should disband this thing,
Known to all as “The Gathering”

Interest has waned,
Some people treat with disdain,
You can feel the pain,
Nothing much to gain,
It has become very plain.

The idea is to form a society,
To celebrate our work monthly,
To share our success story,
To establish a common strategy,
To communicate fairly,
And to find JOY in our routine daily.

But this is not to be,
Even with poems it’s easy to see,
No one seems to be free,
So there is no activity,
C’est La Vie,
Whatever will be will be.

The poems require some planning,
Words require highlighting,
“The Last” will have that meaning,
As with every beginning,
There must be an ending,
So it looks like I’ll be writing,
More for my GM reporting.

Furthermore, my evening,
Will be reserved for other outing,
That will give my Life meaning,
As Religion ain’t my kinda thing,
Hope you guys will be understanding.

For what is Life without passion,
Day after day, session after session,
We have yet to learn our lesson,
Feels like a life of retribution,
All words but no action.

So this will be “The Last”,
To all the remaining Revenue cast.
Whatever we’ve done in the past,
I will treasure and hold fast.

* This final poem dedicated to all those going off or are gone(in the literal sense, not physical sense ! )

Poem : ‘The Gathering’

Filed under: Daren, DEETEE, Poem, Revenue — delephant @ 8:35 am

We’ve got an awesome poet in the Revenue Gang … its none other than Cheah from Shang! 🙂

Each time prior the Revenue Gathering … he would come up with a superb poem! Its so good that i am gonna start archiving it on this blog (will have to search my deleted files for his older poems)

This poem … we’re figuiring out where we’re gonna have our next lunchies? say our goodbye to Jonathan Low, and the upcoming F1 season.

Read on ….  

The Gathering 

The time has come,
Known as ‘The Gathering’ to some,
To others, it may be bothersome,
To us, it’s usually Lunch F1.

Speaking of which,
I’m opening this sales pitch,
On the next destination hitch,
As Jonathan has left us in the ditch.

It’s suppose to be ParkRoyal Hotel,
And it’s easy to tell,
It’s alphabetical,
However, he’s now set sail.

So, we propose a new destination,
Perhaps a place of fascination,
With sounds like detonation,
An event that wakes up the Nation.

Yan said Picnic at the circuit,
Will be of much benefit,
It won’t be a tight fit,
The only problem will be the ticket.

Do they give away tickets for free?
Can someone check and see?
Or perhaps there is a group fee,
then organising it will be easy.

I can bring cheese that shine,
Yan will bring 3 bottles of wine,
Together we will all dine,
F1 Saturday, weather should be fine.

For we always do the same,
GOD says this is not the game,
Don’t let the self get blame,
Let’s change and ignite the flame.

So, what say you my friend?
Should we follow the normal trend?
And gather at hotels again?
For a ‘quickie’ bite as planned?
Or for once, ‘kick the sand’,
And shout “Let’s go to the F1, man !!”
Dude, this goes hand in hand,
When someone asked you again,
At the hotel, you plan and you plan
But didn’t see you at the F1 stand
Let’s go while we can
And listen to the F1 band !!

Poem : MO’s Biba

Filed under: DEETEE, MandarinOriental, Poem, Revenue — delephant @ 10:58 am

This is another Classic Poem by Cheah when we were meeting at Mandarin Oriental’s Biba’s Cafe for our Revenue Manager’s Lunch.

Read on ….

Hey, hey, careful with the innuendos,
The world is full of weirdos,
This is as far as it goes,
I’ve got a ring that shows,
And fresh from honeymoon, your face still glows.

Otherwise, people will say “Cor Blimey”,
Those two must be good matey,
Wonder if there is something fishy,
or perhaps more to the story.

So…… a simple lunch gathering it is,
no bigger story than this,
And stop all the rumours please,
Just want a steak slap with grease,
And other food I don’t wanna miss,
Let MO’s Biba do the tease,
And we will all feel at ease.

For those expecting an Ang Pow,
Don’t think I’m a cash cow,

I give my red packets with a bow,
But the stuff don’t go out now,
The first 3 days of CNY is my vow,
You must catch me before I “ciao”,
That’s the only way to get my Ang Pow,
If not, then how ?

Poem : Waiting for Lunch

Filed under: DEETEE, Poem, Revenue — delephant @ 12:16 pm

This poem construed by Cheah resulted after a long lapse of no Revenue Manager’s Lunch! 🙂

We also said our Good Byes to Nayan who has moved on to a Regional role in UK.

Waiting for Lunch

As the month goes by,
And the weeks seemed to fly,
Waiting for Lunch made me sigh,
Even the Heavens seemed to cry.

12 times a year, now reduced to 4,
It can’t be that gatherings are a bore,
In fact I wanted more,
Perhaps next time even a dance floor.

Let’s do something, I said
A call to Yan I made,
He was previously excited although late,
Now the world waits,
For him to fix a date

Feb 3rd will be his 3rd month arrival anniversary,
Let’s help him celebrate and be merry,
Yan, make sure there are also some Irish Whisky
or at worst, a Bloody Mary

Guys, my parents are not millionaire,
And I don’t invest in equity share,
But I have to live my life with dare
For nobody else will care
Once I have re-located somewhere,
and have no friends there.

So as “Parisa Hilton” once said
before she got laid
Live life great
Live until your dues are paid
Get Yan to commit a date…….

“Printed with reference to our re-located friend, having a ball of time in London now.”
