Benchmark Broadcast Singapore staff go out for lunch together

It happens every now and then. Some of us bring lunch, some of us eat out at nearby food courts. On occasions, we all go out together and have a lunch in a nice restaurant. That was what happened on 23rd October 2017. It was a Monday. We began the week with a nice lunch in a restaurant in Race Course Road, Singapore. The food was good, the ambience relaxed, and the conversation was great!

Here's a group pic of us at lunch.

Benchmark Broadcast Singapore celebrates CNY

Benchmark Broadcast celebrated Chinese New Year at their Singapore office by tossing the Yusheng.

Tossing the Yusheng (a Teochew style raw fish salad) is a typically South East Asian (Nanyang) custom popularised by the ethnic Chinese migrants. Not really the norm in mainland China.

Yusheng consists of strips of raw fish mixed with shredded vegetables and a mix of sauces and other condiments. Yusheng literally means raw fish but Yusheng also is interpreted by its sound as an increase in abundance or prosperity.

Here are a few photos of the Yusheng being tossed up in the air!

Benchmark Delhi Reunion Lunch

When the Benchmark Delhi boys and girls organized a Potluck Lunch on 20th December, they thought "more" was definitely merrier. So they decided to invite some ex-Benchmarkers too! And they made it a Reunion Lunch!.

Several ex-Benchmarkers joined. It was time for catching up, batting the breeze and tasting all the treats. All the participants got a "Reunion" sweat shirt.

In order to limber up the appetite, they decided to have a musical chair too! Boy, was there a lot of running and scrambling for seats! After the good fun and the amazing lunch, they gathered on the open terrace to catch up on some winter sunshine! It was a great time with a great crowd!

Enjoy the photos!

Benchmark Singapore Potluck Lunch

The Benchmark Singapore staff organized a Potluck Lunch on 17th Nov, 2016. Several ex-benchmarkers were also invited. We eventually had a gathering of about 25 people including our own staff, ex-staff and some families.

About 15 people delivered their culinary creations which included multiple starters such as vadai and pakoras, chicken dhum biryani, pasta, steamed fish, several curries, salads, pappadoms, yoghurt rice and a whole array of mouth watering desserts inclding cup cakes, gulab jamoon, custard cakes, Kulfa and assorted chocolates!

It was a great gathering! Lots of banter, catching up and photo taking happened. Of course we stuffed our faces too! Special thanks go to the organizers of the Potluck Lunch! We now have to spend several hours in the gym to shed the kilos we put on with just one lunch!

Enjoy the photos!
