Ladies' Nights

We, four of ABF's Indonesian employees - Weny, Netty, Shirley and I, have been hanging out together for three consecutive nights right after work. We have lunch together and go home together half of the time.

After 6, the usual practice would be either Shirley or I swing by to Weny and/or Netty's desks, check them out and just chit chat till both of them finally turn off their computers. If I am the one who happens to be busy, then Shirley and Weny would come by and ask me to call it a day.

These past three days have been amazing. Everyone is already in holiday mood. We are living weekdays as if weekends. Couldn't care less about work. We meet up again after work, have dinner somewhere, do a little bit window shopping (and some impulse buying) and then have a long good girls' talk.

All of these things may sound rubbish and boring to all of you who did not join our panel discussions. But, here we are - 4 working Indonesian ladies in ABF from different hometowns and upbringings. When we talk, our topics range from modes of transportation to Mascaras and Hello Kitty. We just talk a lot about everything and anything we can think of and forget about time.

Not that long knowing these beautiful, fun and smart ladies, but I enjoy my every minute with them. We stop chatting only when we start yawning and cannot stand our sleepy eyes anymore.

Lucky to have best friends!
