Citibank - To Russia with Love

A farewell gift to the boss from Citibank staff.
The boss is being transfered to Citibank in Russia, and hence the Russia theme.
This is the brief from them:-

Ong Lay Choo - she wants to be a winged fairy with a magic wand in one hand. Also
by the side, a large calculator. (Why? She always makes things happen when push
comes to shove and she is always calculating numbers, costs, profitability, etc...)

Paul Hode - He warts to be drawn up in a kimono. Just as in the pidura.

Dennis Tan ~ he wants to be a juggler- He wants to Juggle 4 things - a small building,
$$$$, Dunan, Shit. (Because he is always juggling between getting in Revenues,
branch expansion projects, thorny issues and all kinds of shit that comes in the way.)

Paul Nah - he wants to have a body of a durian. (because Joel hates durians and he
made him eat one )

Roy Phua - he wants to be a Jedi Knight Gust like in star wars). (Why, he is the one (g)
always protecting the budget and expenses and ensuring the good of everyone)

Marco Low - dream as Elvis holding on to a mic.

-Sunny Quek - he wants to have a body of a sexy fat cat. (Why? Because Joel's
favourite are his cats at home and he loves them to death)

Frances Cheng - She wants to be a judge. Why? Because she is the compliance head
in our division. She ensures things go as they are and spot t he discrepancies. The
beholder of truth.

The Main Back ground, could we have sketches of Singapore (Meriion) on one side &
Russia landmarks on the other side.

Joel Komreich —
To be dressed in Russian Outfit. Because he is going there to be the Country Business
Manager of Russia. To Russia with Love.

Aruna Raghavan - She wants her face on a Mona Lisa painting. The edges of the
painting make it have the ridges of a postage stamp. So this looks like it is a stamp withher face on it. She loves the arts

Pl^oSshu - always carrying a big bag and Tons of papers in one hand , shuffling between Esplanade branch office and MilleniaTower Head office. She will be carrying a lot of papers and in Mrs incredible suite.
