9 Nov 2014 – SIN Ireland Fund Emerald Ball
Fri: finally done with the outfit after nearly a week of mess in my living space! This has cost me less than S$30 for all the materials. But if one includes time, then that is priceless.
The only snag is that the eyes are not good enough with threading a needle without the help of this wonderful little gadget and another bigger eye 🙂
Thank you Carmel & Soon for an enchanted evening at the St Regis. Appreciations to HongSze for driving us there.
A fun evening with Irish dancing and other dancing…
Good and food and wines…
