Dinner with the Bosses

Two weeks into the year and everyone was yearning for a break and a break we got, courtesy of Gary Webster and Gerywn Williams. We had a wonderful dinner at Chokolat Royal, a fancy dining place in Victoria Island, or was it Lekki, who knows? Just look at the walk way within the restaurant.

Some of us early birds started with some cool drinks at the balcony of the restaurant.

Below are some pictures of the night. We had the choice of a steak, prawn or spicy chicken. I had the steak but those who had the prawn said there were huge and absolutely mouth watering. But unfortunately I was too busy eating to take any picture except for my desert, the Mexican Cigar (chocolate ice cream and bananas).

The thinker James, Tim and Daniel. James always thinks hard before every meal. Tim is the one who provides all the laughter in any room he’s in – a good sport. Daniel the brain.

It was a fun night. 5 hours of good food, drinks and more importantly, good company. Gary made a comment about the team spirit in the team – a bunch of people gathered quite quickly from all over the world, working in Lagos for 4 months now, under some tough conditions and yet we’re doing well.

Thanks Gary for a wonderful night out. Hopefully we can have this every week ;)
