Yoga, Neon Lights & Karaoke: Scenes from Shopee Singapore’s 9.9 Celebration

9.9 may have become a campaign season common to the eCommerce industry, but there’s no one who does it like we do. Apart from flash deals for our consumers, we’ve had a splendid LinkedIn giveaway and positive energy from various offline events.

View them here: Thailand, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam. 

With 9.9 (9th September) falling on a Sunday this year, we had a line-up of activities to encourage and appreciate employees who returned to work on the weekends. Scroll down for snapshots at Shopee’s headquarters in Singapore!

The more the merrier: What’s the fun without the big group of people you see everyday?
We know this is going on Instagram! #lifeatshopee #Shopee99
Our Regional Finance team strikes a pose in front of the crowd-favorite neon lights backdrop. Shoutout to the Offline Marketing team for bringing the party over!
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Our team here is heeding the advice of an old Chinese adage, “休息是为了走更长的路” (resting is necessary if we want to make progress)
Our Employee Engagement team giving out 9.9 T-shirts and mascot-themed eye masks
Cafeteria or yoga studio? Our common meeting place often doubles up as both

All smiles for the best team photo ever!
Meanwhile, fun and games are going well underway in the cafeteria, which has, again, been transformed. This time, it’s a casual entertainment arena
We’re almost down to the last man (or woman) standing!
There may be only one winner for this game, but everyone wins with their million dollar smiles!
Shopee’s Mr. Popular Lim Xian You from the Software Engineering team croons a tune that sends the crowd swooning
Steven from the Regional Finance team shows off his impressive vocals, much to the delight of his colleagues!
There’s no party without food!

 

Three cheers for Shopee and three cheers for 9.9! See you next year!
