Memo to Boss. Re: Secretaries Week 2018 Singapore

Dear Boss, a gentle reminder that Secretaries Week 2018 Singapore is just around the corner. I do not know how they compute the dates each year, but it seems that Secretaries Week 2018 Singapore will be celebrated from 23 April 2018 to 27 April 2018.  Unlike last year when you rushed around and informed us at the last minute, I trust that you will have more time to plan this year.  Some people thought you did it on purpose so that some secretaries could not attend. Of course I told them it was not true. Anyway, I think your generosity will be more appreciated if you send the invitations at least one day in advance. To help you make up your mind I have put together a few Secretaries Day lunch suggestions for your kind consideration.

And one more thing.  You might want to know that Secretaries Week used to be a time for bosses to celebrate with their secretaries only. I noticed that things have changed. The occasion is sometimes referred to as Administrative Professionals Week.  I am not sure if this is just another label for secretaries or is meant to include other office colleagues as well. I am in favour of the latter. You might want to extend your invitation this year to our co-workers in Accounts, IT and HR as well. Perhaps our printers will be replaced this year and our taxi fare claims will be processed faster.

I believe a reservation needs to be made quickly. Please also note the terms and conditions of each restaurant as they vary from place to place. Oh and don’t forget to file your income tax return.
