A Digital Good Time
29 Nov 2017

At DSTA’s gala dinner held on 24 November 2017, staff and invited guests had a night full of fun!

Themed ‘Digital Night’, the event saw staff bonding with their colleagues over dinner, laughter and conversations. Some came dressed as their favourite character from Star Wars while others made their own innovative costumes. Long queues were spotted at the two photo booths set up that night to capture these memorable moments.

The night ended on a high note with everyone gathering around the stage, clapping along to the music and posing for a shot by a flying drone.

First time attending DSTA’s gala dinner, Engineer (C4I Development) Lim Ying shared: “It was a fun and enjoyable night and a good time to catch up with my colleagues in other departments!”
