Post-Event Update (April 27th, 2009)

The event went smoothly and it was an absolutely fun and memorable night. There were 80+ attendees, and everybody blended into a pleasant atmosphere of joy and laughter.

I'd like to express my sincerest thanks to everyone present that made this event a success, and a big thanks to all the generous sponsors, as well as friends and colleagues that have helped out (especially Joyce at the reception).

Below is our dinner's itinerary:
- Arrival Of Noblemen
- Drawing The Red Curtain (Ezer's Speech)
- Prologue (Andy's Speech)
- Medals of Honour
- It's.. Party Time (Song Performance by Michael & Andy)
- Dinner Time (and absolutely romantic Only You song rendition by Michael)
- Play Time! (Musical chairs, balloon mania, and trivia quiz with attractive prizes)
- Lottery Of Fortune (5 Lucky Draw winners selected!)
- Freezing The Moment
- Au Revoir

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves - I certainly did! I was absolutely exhausted, but I was still wide awake late into the night with my mind playing back all the scenes from this wonderful party

Here are some photos of the event, enjoy! A big thanks to Chee Yew and Harris for the photos.

Thanks Chelly, please check with them as well to see if they supply the chairs & tables - if not, I'll need to rent them from the caterer as well. I estimate we'll need to accomodate about 50 people.

Once you have booked, please ask them for a receipt and the management contact number, so we can call them for follow enquiries.

Thanks!

Bell,

I might be revising the date to April 25th instead - will you be able to make it on that day?

I'll be making the announcement in a day or two once I get confirmation from the updated venue.
