This was such a bitter sweet show. I felt so honoured to be chosen to be the Singapore emcee, the Master of ceremonies to host this event. So, why is it bitter sweet? Because Carrefour became a household name in Singapore, but unfortunately, the pendulum swung in the opposite direction, & this was to be their last event in Singapore, as they were closing down. So sad, but, I couldn’t dwell on that! This was their last event, & I wanted to let them know how much we loved them, how much we valued them & how lucky we were to have them here.
I dug in my heels – we were going to bring it!. The organising committee already told us – this was the highest amount they had ever spent on their event – ever! They were going to let rip & have a spectacular time. They insisted – insisted, that this was to be a night of celebration. Of fun. Of gratitude.
The theme was just that. Thank you. In all the different languages – as a Singapore emcee, we need to speak a bit of Chinese, Malay, Indian, & in this case – French! Which I did. We said ‘Thank you’ to them in every way we could, & in every language we could.
They were so excitable, I could barely believe the company was closing shop. We never had to ask for participants for games more than once, &, in fact, we had so many people coming on stage to participate – I was a bit worried the stage would hold the weight.
The audience were out to have fun, Carrefour were out to celebrate their time in Singapore, & as the Singapore emcee, I was lucky to be a small part of their last party in Singapore.
Even one of my friends who saw the pictures of this event remarked “I can’t believe these people are losing their jobs – they’re so happy!”
I think this shows that Carrefour must have treated their staff well, & we can only wish them the best, wherever they go, & hope that we see them soon back in Singapore.
