About Last Night...

~Well... let me tell you what happened*
As part of the job description, I have to wine-dine-entertain
our business clients...(no...I'm not a real geisha!)
So I decided to treat them to one of
the finest French dining experience in Singapore.
.
Picked the perfect outfit to wear that night...and
.
yup, even had my hair & manicure done
in a salon~ to look cuter!
.
wooops~ had no time to steam-iron the dress though!
...too busy doing last minute eye-brow plucking!
~But still looking cute no?!
.
of course nail color must match the bag!
...not only cute but
you know...I'm dangerous like that!
anywayyy...
to make the long story short,
the dinner went well and the food was deliciousss...
but then...
.
When it was time to pay for the the dinner,,,
It went something like this!!!
.
.geekthegirl:   caitlicious:  (via lumos-maxima) bahaha  WHAT? WHAT? How did I miss this earlier?
" ket-ching$ !!! "
.
Thankfully, my clients & I did not
have to wash any dirty dishes in the back of
the restaurant-kitchen that night!
well-well-well...
All I know is that when I get back to my office,
I certainly have some explaining to do
with the account department!
errr-errr...burp*
.
~XOXO*

Sabine said...

But Lenore, aren't happy clients PRICELESS? And with the help of your nearly geishaesque charms they will be faithful to your company forever, I'm sure!!

abigail said...

so funny!

Frau said...

Dishpan hands would have ruined those nails! Good luck with the accounting...maybe bring home something special for them.

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Thank you Sabine,
I shall copy your line when I have to explain to the office back home!
;)

Sarah said...

LOL! Too funny. But you're in Singapore, you're allowed to live it up a little right? Surely they'll understand?

Melanie's Randomness said...

Yikes!!! I've had that happen with a luncheon. Cute dress!! Ooo hope all goes well!!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

haha so funny always! you look gorgeous Lenore! at least the little peek we could take... xo

katztales said...

Saw you at Photojoy's blog. Hey, fun post!

Tia said...

True, true Sabine!
I'm sure they were so smitten with your purse-matching-nails that they will forever be indebted to that company of yours!

Auburn Not Red said...

hehe Always price-check before going out to dinner.

Brandi said...

Oh, dear. Giant bills are always scary, but they say that sharing food with others helps create long-lasting relationships and many deals are made over the dinner table. Bring that reasoning to the accounting department. (And your dress -- it's stunning!)

photojoy said...

Yeah, don't worry. You are such a superwoman! You will make anything possible! "Mission possible"
Love your funny post tonight. You know, you make me sooo happy.

Susan said...

But dahling, you're on business... Singapore can get so hot and steamy, suggest you send your dress to the hotel's laundry for daily pressing and take plenty of ice cool cocktails to prevent melt down (at least pre-accounts).

Phoenix said...

LOL it IS a business expense. Hope you kept the receipt in a safe place!

amy @ switz~art said...

Love it! And loving that LV clutch...swishy!
Did that panda poop himself? 'Cause I can just imagine what the bill was worth and I certainly would!
Your trip looks amazing!

Rolley said...

HAHA that's so funny, my brother in law did the exact same thing in Sydney last year, and had the old "please explain!" haha.

Kwana said...

Funny! And you look fab. Love the dress and the bag.

Kristin said...

OOPS. Well, at least you looked fabulous while spending all that dough! ah ha ha

Tracie said...

Look how gorgeous you are! Even when you don't show your face.

stephanie said...

hahahaha!! this cracked me up! i've definitely felt like that when taking folks out on the organizations card...whoops!

and yes that looks like the perfect little outfit...cute!

Sam said...

Oooooh! Another tantalising glimpse of the lovely Lenore - so pretty! Lucky clients to be wined and dined by you sweetie! Poor Panda!! Hehehe!

The Cottage Cheese said...

Aw, you look so lovely! I can't get enough of the sneezing baby panda video, and this adaptation is too clever!

designerman said...

that make me laugh out loud!

Sher said...

I'm laughing because I know exactly what you mean. But it's my brother who is doing the big spending LOL!

BTW You look gorgeous dear. And all linen dresses have a crease or two. It's what makes them perfectly individual :)
