Panjabi day at work :)

We had a panjabi day at work today. It was our sprint planning day. Peter and me attened our planning meeting wearing panjabi and we were wearing it until the end of the day. Let me tell you the whole story.

While coming back from Dhaka this time, I brought a panjabi for Peter and a fotua for his wife, Nicken. I gave those to him on last Sunday. Looks like they liked the dress. On that night he sent me a mail telling that how about two of us wearing this dress in office to surprise everybody. I agreed and we selected the sprint planning day to be blessed which was today :)

We arrived at work in normal outfit like jeans and shirt. Our daily scrum meeting is at 10 O'clock. At 9:55 our product owner and our scrum master came to our team space. Peter and me left the team space, found some quiet place in terrace, put on the panjabi over our shirt and came back. Everybody was looking at us with a strange look. Our product owner and scrum master were smiling. Aila screamed what it is. Peter answered it is our sprint planning uniform :P Everybody laughed :D

After the daily we discussed about our upcoming user stories and then we tried to spit the work in many stickers. We finished around 11 O'clock and I proposed to have lunch somewhere outside. Everybody agreed to go to a chinese restaurant. I wanted to take my panjabi off but Peter said "hey it's for the entire day", so we went to lunch in that dress :) When we reached at the restaurant people were looking at Peter mostly, not me becuase I look like asian but he doesn't. We finished our lunch and came back at 01:30 PM. Peter went to some shop to buy some of his building stuffs. I went to the sprint planning meeting with other teams straight and I was the only one there in this unusual dress among 15 people. Everybody was looking at me. Feeling a bit embarrassed I sent a text to Peter telling "Don't you dare change your dress before coming to the meeting room". Well, he came 15 miinutes later and I got relief because he didn't change. Now people are smiling looking at him and me again and again. It was fun :)

The good thing is I didn't forget to take picture of us in this dress. I am sharing two pictures here for you to see how did we look in the office today :P

The reason why Peter put his hands like that is he wanted to look spiritual in the picture :P
