9 Speech 



Chanyeol then went on to speak about his plans for the company, which were all good. He then invited Mrs Choi to say a few words, which she did. That was an emotional moment; giving twenty-five years of her life, she had single-handedly grown, Ace Advertising Agency from her living room into an organisation, of over two hundred employees. At the end, she received a prolonged, thunderous applause.


Chanyeol again took over. ‘I would request the department heads to stay back. Everyone else can kindly resume his or her work. One more thing – next week, we will start a cafeteria for the  employees. Food and beverages will be provided to the employees at no cost to them.’


That announcement got loud hoots. Free food is the best – like free from any threats of pregnancy, STDs and HIV. Within minutes, the numbers dwindled to a handful.
