20 Jun 2014 – honoris causa
Thu: congratulations to Les for receiving an NUI Honorary Degree of Doctor of Medicine/honoris causa. So proud of Les and blessed to have such a bro. Does not seemed that long ago he graduated in 1967 from Med School! A short and sweet speech where he expressed that his wife Ivy is the most important person in his life and as the saying goes…
Behind every great/successful man there stands a woman
Such a prestige to be the 6th (over 100yrs) to receive this. Also to have the Chancellor (NUI), President (UCD), Registrar (NUI) and other distinguished guests from SIN and others from to fly into SIN to present the award.
Honoured to be among the guests for a such an occasion. Thank you to Les&Ivy for turning their lovely house to an elegant celebration for a night. Delicious food catered by Four Seasons**** Surrounded by profession photographers and thus not too focus on my own pix…
Wed: an evening of fine dining at Tower Club***** where Les was awarded a life member for UCD.
An early afternoon at Gardens by the Bay’s Spring in France, which concludes my SIN guiding for Sue&Niall. Safe journeys back to the UK to them and thank you for being here to attend Les’s conferring. To rest for a few days before cousin Dave and his HI group arrives next week in addition to houseguest from HKG!
