Citi will always have a special place in my heart because of the friendships formed with my officemates. Work hard, play hard was the motto. There were the looong lunches, Top of the Citi drinks, out of town trips, beach escapades, IO karaoke nights and tequila sessions. In fact, when Miles and I got married, we did a quick change after the reception then joined the Corfin gang at IO for a song and lechon kawali. We may have gone our separate ways -- Ginger to Boston, Arnie to Singapore, Lee to Tao, Brij to Indonesia, Rajiv to the Middle East and the Castros to Sydney, but the ties are still there.
It was great to meet up again with Dawn and Ed. Sydney has been good to this family. Dawn is blooming and Ed is well.... expanding. It came as a bit of a shock to hear that he and Joel have kicked the smoking habit but at least he still has the same passion for healthy food such as crispy pata. =)
