"Drop everything! Go get people to sing when the judges come. If we want to win this, we must do something extra, inject more raya (Eid festival) spirit." A senior manager was asking a junior geologist to round up as many people in the office as possible, to sing a festive tune to impress the judges for the office Eid festival decoration competition.
I couldn't believe what I heard. Drop everything! Now, talk about priority.
Perhaps he was trying to make this drab and cold office a wee bit more cheerful and fun.
I know, I'm such a buzzkill.
