Employees of Bayview Hotel Melaka let their hair down as they celebrated their 20th anniversary with a staff party here recently.
Themed “Ladies in Black, Men in Red”, there were more ladies present, judging from the blacks dominating the reds.
The night started with the inaugural Bayview Idol competition where five finalists from various departments gave an inspiring performance.
Natasha Ng of the sales and marketing department walked away with a trophy, holiday voucher and RM300 as the winner while the food and beverage department’s Mohd Firdaus Zainal and Afendi Nahrawi came in second and third respectively.
General manager Tan Hui Teng, in his speech, urged the staff to improve their service and go the extra mile to assist guests.
“The tourism industry is becoming very competitive and we have to do more to achieve the hotel’s mission of becoming a premier conference and business class hotel,” he said.
He also presented long service awards to 27 employees while 39 others received perfect attendance awards.
Jenny Tan of the Kitchen Department had the distinction of perfect attendance over 14 consecutive years.
Tan and two others, Evonne Yap and Jenny Tan, who had been with the hotel for 20 years, received loyalty awards.
There was a surprise when three men carried in a big box for the general manager to open for his 57th birthday.
A girl dressed in Bollywood attire popped out of the box and danced with Tan, to applause from the staff.
After this, there were dangdut, bollywood and rolling 60’s dances, sketches which left everyone in stitches, and games and lucky draws.
The maintenance department’s Back To School sketch won the first prize of RM300 followed by the Sales and Marketing Department’s Grease Lightning and Housekeeping Department’s traditional dance.
