TESL Night 2011: An Avenue of Icons' First Look

TESL Night 2011: An Avenue of Icons is now confirmed! I can’t wait for it. It’s the grand night [and dinner] for all TESLians of IPGK Gaya. Can’t wait for it!


Venue: Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

[That’s the best place that we could find, and by saying best, I mean that it is the best of the best! No other TESL Nights were ever held here before. One thing: securing a place is a hard job.]

Date: 15th of April 2011

[Previous Nights were usually organised in March, but this time we need to stick to April since a number of issues had arisen. Securing time is even harder job]

Time: 6.30pm-11.00pm

[Guests are expected to come at 6.30pm. what more can you say about time? Oh yeah: don’t be fashionably late because nothing is fashionable about being late.]

Theme/Dress Code: An Avenue of Icons (you may portray yourselves as an icon or imitate an icon by giving the maximum decent appearance)

[Icons can mean anything. It’s up to you. For girls, it might be easier. Just look around you. The guys though… I don’t think they want to wear tux, or do they? One more: MAXIMUM. DECENT. APPEARANCE. Give your dress the best shot, and just as an emphasis, please avoid too many ogling eyes, or for that matter, the culture shock(s) of the century, by wearing something that is not too revealing, sexy, or inappropriate. In other words, decent… or bring a shawl]

Price: RM 65 per pax

[Don’t argue with the price. No pay, no paaar-tay!]

Highlights of the night: Variety of performances by different groups, lucky draws and ‘Icons of The Night’ (male and female), and some surprise activities.

[The main reason for one to go to an annual dinner [besides the feast] is or course to enjoy the performances, or to get lucky [by winning the lucky draw]. Enjoy!]


Chinese Menu Set

Three hot & cold combinations

Sweet corn and chicken soup

Stir fried chicken with chilli and cashew nuts

Sweet & Sour snapper slices

Stewed Black Mushroom with Tau Kan & Vegetables

Special fried rice

Honeydew Sago in Coconut Milk

[The food is without a doubt the main attraction of the night. It’s halal, and according to the testers [or tasters, if you prefer], AWESOME! I have been dreaming about the dessert all this while. It will be served straight to your table by waiters and waitresses. No buffet. Talk about style!]
