Monotonous work, dreaded deadlines. They’re inevitable but with the right people, they’ll turn that boring day tasks into motivation! Here at Qourier, we work hard but we have to admit, we’re sure to play harder! We’re not just colleagues; we’re friends, we’re that close-knitted family made up of fun, energetic and inclusive individuals regardless of age, race or religion!
This month, as our Muslim friends celebrate Hari Raya, we knew we had to join in the festive vibes as one family. Needless to say, we had a Hari Raya gathering with good food and drinks. I mean, what’s a Hari Raya party without good food and matching outfits, right?
Unanimously, we voted to have Arnold’s Fried Chicken (and a Subway sandwich for our vegetarian friend) for our celebratory lunch. In our fully air-conditioned, two-story office, we placed our feast right in the middle where the savory aroma of fried chicken and buns flood our work-spaces.
Engaging in short banters with our co-founders, conversations on future hiking trips and jokes echoed around our office as we devoured our lunch. It was a comforting and cozy environment where you’d almost forget that you’re still at work as you feel the personal bond to everyone, much like a family.

At Qourier, we’re a balance of both. This is our culture and this is how we roll. As with the diversity in race and religion, we aim to experience and learn from other cultures, to garner a deeper understanding of our teammates. In turn, the team grows more aligned and in-sync.
Pretty sure we’d all had a blast together this Hari Raya and we hope you guys will too! Here’s wishing Eid Mubarak to all our Muslim friends!
