Benefits of an Engineering Job!


They throw some crazy parties... We were invited to the Ruby Jubilee (Singapore Salvage Engineers is a Vendor to Blake's company and they were celebrating their 40th Anniversary) to sit at one of the three NOBLE (where Blake works) tables. There were about 800 people at the party and it was in the Grand Ballroom of a hotel here in Singapore... Very nice and man did we have a good time.


As we entered we were assigned seats and handed some local beer... Tiger.

Also as we entered I saw rows and rows of "funeral flowers" leading us to the main entrance... except these flowers said Congratulations... different and interesting.

These guys (plus their wives) work with Blake and I enjoyed getting to know this group... they are so much fun and we got to sit at their table. Rory, Helen, Kevin and Kerry (left to right).

Here is a picture of our MC for the night... forgot her name but she came with back up dancers. She could sing and tell jokes... but she had lots of fun games to play. She asked for a guy dancer in the audience (of 800 people) that would come and join her on stage... and I should have known that I would sit at the table with the one guy that wanted to be on stage... Go Kevin... more to come from his show.

Here is Kevin's show:



Good job on the splits.

This was his gift after the show... a present and some kisses.



There were some dancers...

And then they picked people from the audience... and once again the guy in the white shirt was from Noble... this is the Project Manager for one of the rigs.

Then an entertainer from India came on stage and asked trivia questions and did impersonations... I got an answer right about THE KING and got a "stress hard hat"... see the yellow thing on my head.



One of the last games of the night they asked for single men to come up... the guy in the blue with the black plants is Stephen (another Noble guy) and they had to race horses between their legs... Hilarious. More to come on Stephen's show.

Ready... Set... Go! I forgot to tell you but the audience (of 800 people) were given the option to bet on winning horse... of course we all bet on Stephen.

Here is Stephen's Show:



Way to go dude.

And the grand prize winner for the race was our dear friend... noble wife... Tracy... She won over $300 dollars... you go girl (remember out of 800 people).


There was alot to eat but it all kind of looked like this... Not So Sure... but I do have to admit that I ate a big plate of Jelly Fish... but at first I thought it was noodles.

For desert we had Yam Paste... I will let you decide.



All in all... this is what our table looked like all night... we were having so much fun. And we did win a table prize (I guess for being the craziest).

And this is what the table next to us looked like... watching people have so much fun.

Until next time.
