‘Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.’ – Margaret Mead

Born on October 23, 1983, Leonard Allan Bayot or LA as we called him came to work in Singapore back in 2006 at the fresh age of 23, after 1 year work experience in the Philippines this young stud managed to score a job in a Swiss bank where I used to work. I remember his first day, he was conscious, awfully quiet and reserved. He treated us a box of pizza because we bullied him to pay for it as initiation for newly hired first day employees. Later on, he found out he was the only one who did that.

But karma’s a bitch and so was LA because we found out that he was not quiet nor reserved after all…

We worked on the same project. Like a typical overseas worker who hadn’t had enough of working in Manila but had an opportunity of working abroad at an early age. He always whines about going home, missing his friends and family etc. As per his dialogue “Screw the opportunity! I don’t care about the 10 folds salary” I want to go home! – But guess what! LA still roams Singapore and is now on his 3rd year and counting… (And yeah…still with the same company.)LA_girls

LA’s after party

 

We always celebrate his birthday party parallel to Halloween so this way we can dress up and go to Clark Quay to mingle or enter the bars for free because were wearing costumes. We are not used to this culture but we are getting the hang of it. Just so you know, people dress up as ghosts, witches, goblins, and other scary things for Halloween due to the belief that it will ward off harmful spirits. The purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus the real spirit will leave to avoid harm.

The event was Ghouls Night out at Clark Quay -The whole of Clarke quay is like a big club. It was as crowded and most people are

costumes. The outside was better than inside…the bars are crowded so we just hanged at an outdoor bar where we can see people passing by. Our groups (composed of 24 people) holler at passers by wearing their costumes… most of them responded approvingly except for Edward Scissorhands…hmp! Indeed, the time you enjoy wasting is not wasted because we holler at everyone wearing their costumes until 3am.

Notes:

Clarke Quay is a historical riverside quay in Singapore, located within the Singapore River Planning Area. The quay is situated upstream

    Correction, according to LA, he appeared in a baby “soap” commercial. Ok, so that one’s gotten straight out.. Nice collection of trivia you have there.. Surprisingly, you remembered so much about LA from 3 years ago!

    LA’s party was a blast. The whole group had so much fun at the after party. I laughed my heart out when the group sang “Nobody, Nobody, but you!” while 3 girls in wonder girls costume passed by. And thanks to them as they smiled back at us.

    Great party!

I also enjoyed the 2 american girls – we were about to leave they came back dancing infront of us and we cant just ignored them so we sang along to the music low, low, low, low….the 2 of them just danced and all the passers by sang low, low, low, low as well …priceless!
