CS's Farewell Bash @Le Meridien

This is the first official farewell bash throw to CS Tan (GM for Maxis ISD dept) on 2 days before. CS has been working in Maxis for about 15 years and in end of 2009, he made a decision to leave the company to catch up with some other things which he thinks more important to him. Well, CS has been a very good mentor to me since I joined Maxis even though now in IBM. I admiring his capability in handling works and pressures, as well as his superb communication skills.

Oh well, back to the farewell bash, it was held @Le Meridien hotel organized by a team of Maxis/IBM staffs which specially formed for this event. Thanks to the team, without them, I don't think the party will be ON; and the run-down of the event was just smooth, nice and touch.
