    There is a vast world of work out there in this country, where at least 111 million people are employed in this country alone--many of whom are bored out of their minds. All day long.

    TGIF...emphasizes on the works, tension and hard workings done during the week days (week days activities). And simply summarizes it as weekend period, hour for recreations and merriment with family and friends/love ones.

    It simply means Thank God it's Friday and part of our work/life balance activities. We normally organize merry-making programs to enable the employees move away from work tension to a central place where they meet with colleagues just to have fun. The atmosphere allows employees to unwind, share jokes, dance, eat and just banter at each other.
