Free Lunch

I bet not many companies in Singapore provide free lunch for its employees. My company is just one of the very rare.

This ‘free meals’ program started about three to four years ago, I cannot remember the exact year. At the start, three meals were provided free-of-charge to all employees on weekdays that include breakfast, lunch and dinner.

However, this benefit was terminated last year due to the economic downturn. Two months ago, the management has decided to offer free lunch again when economy showed signs of picking-up. It’s only free lunch for now, no breakfast and dinner yet.

By taking free lunch in the office canteen, I save at least $100 a month. For two months, I saved $200. I decided to spend this $200 to get myself a Kate Spade wallet. Sounds good?

Now, let’s meet this babe! Kate Spade Classic Noel Sander wallet in chocolate brown. Love it to bits!

Hi Claire,
Nice to see u here. Yes, it’s wonderful. Besides the $$$, its time-savings and convenience too. I don’t have to go out under the hot sun to eat my lunch. I hate hawker centers without air-con cos I will melt there. I can get another Kate Spade bag three months later. Muahaha!

Hi Mico,
Thanks. I bought it from blogshop love-d-store. I found this blogshop via SMH bulk purchase. The blogshop owner’s name is Carol, a very nice lady. She personally delivers the wallet to me.
