We had a great time catching up with old friends and making new acquaintances. In fact, we had so much fun and there was so much to talk about that although the party was meant to end by 11pm, some of my guests stayed on and left only as ‘early’ as 3am.

My dear friends, I would like to thank you all once again for your friendship and support. I wish you all prosperity, health and happiness …
