Halloween Bash 2016


What are the key ingredients for an unforgettable Halloween party?- Food, Folks and Fun! Yes, we have them all!

img_0404We start the fun with “senses guessing games”. Each team member is blindfolded and taking turn to taste and feel the mysterious item in a brown bag.  They only get one chance to guess its name! What are in the brown bags? Aha~! Longan jello, cauliflower, pumpkin seeds, baby food etc. Durian and stinky tofu were removed from the list because….we won’t make it so easy!

Next, it’s about teamwork! Each team has to convert a gingerbread house to a haunted house with anything they can find in the office. Rules? Be a creative builder and a storyteller!

Tadaaa….we have a winning team! Each person gets a set of movie ticket! And the best costume goes to Xueting, $100 Amazon gift card!

Special thanks to Cheryl, Vicki, Leon, Jie, Xueni, etc. for preparing, great teamwork!

Hope everyone had fun as much as I do! Happy Halloween cool beans 🙂

November’s Team Building Event-Hunger Games in Thanksgiving


The most exciting and difficult Thanksgiving feast happened in Suning’s November’s team building event, host by business operation team. Imagine a peaceful Thanksgiving feast in the company? Oh, you are too naive! It’s not that simple.

Business Operation team is so smart that they made it a fierce competition for every team in the company to win the food. Only those who answered the tricky questions correctly could get the delicious dishes.

Tasty food with good smell was placed on the table. Everyone was hungry and staring at the food. Now it’s time to use your brain and put up your hands immediately to answer those tricky but interesting questions!




Hunger games begin!

The first round is about multiple-choice questions related to Thanksgiving. For example, what food were not served at the first Thanksgiving? Everyone was trying their best to get attention by the host.

The team that answered correctly was really excited, because they could get a big dish!


The second round included questions about the company. For example, how many parking spaces does our company have? Oh, there is a new rule! Winer of the first round will have the privilege to choose a team to answer this question including themselves.  Competition became fiercer!


The third round is called “would rather” questions. Each team randomly picked one member in the company and answer the “would rather” question about that person. For example,  win a trip to Hawaii or a free laptop?


In the end, some teams got several dishes, including the most popular dish-lobster pasta, but some teams just got a salad. Fortunately, all employees in Suning are so kind that all team agreed to share their dishes with everyone! What a perfect Thanksgiving!
