The Dinner

You guys must be bored to death already with my Ruby Anniversary postings. Hey! One for the road guys!

My brother reached Muar at about 5pm to fetch my parents and it was raining cats and dogs along the way! When he arrived dad was cleaning up the porch and driveway because there was a flash flood. Mybrother was sooo hungry that he had his meal first and when he finished, my parents were still not ready yet. When they were finally ready..he was pressed for time to reach Langat 8.30 pm that he had to drive like an F1 driver all the way!

Menwhile, we in Langat had a series of black outs...The resort is powered by a private generator and they were heavily overloaded that night because they had 5 events running at the same time which they admitted (only after our event) that the generator could not cope! Luckily they have a back up generator and power was restored just before my parents arrived. Otherwise I would have sued them personally...Nah...just kidding!

Well the dinner turned out fine. I shall let the pictures below do the talking!

Swarmed with emotions - hugging dear sister.

Hiding actual emotions - that's dad for you!

Looking perplexed and feeling surreal.

Speech by the couple - didn't know my father can be sooo eloquent and witty!
