An excuse to celebrate...
The day began with a light drizzle and moderate wind, very much in keeping with the weather this time of year. Good for the plant but not desirable for a party.
The party went on with no mishap except on a few occasions in which a couple of guests went astray and ended up somewhere else. No matter, I finally managed to round them up and lead them right to my doorstep.
Once everybody is present and accounted for, can the party truly begin.
You see, I subscribe to the US Army Special Forces motto of "No One Left Behind" not the TUDM's motto of "Sentiasa di AngkasaRaya" (lit. trans. "Always in the Airspace") though I have been known to be a bit of an airhead at times!
Anyways, back to the lunch....
At this point, the table was still half empty, awaiting to be fill up to the brim with offerings from the other guests.
