D4 and I attended a friend's 65th birthday bash at the Manila Shangrila. It was a simple yet extravagant affair! Okay, the description is not quite right. The birthday party was simple in terms of the guest list and it was extravagant because it was held as the "Shang". The dinner was scrumptious though I did not eat. I took particular notice of the roast lamb though. The birthday celebrant requested the guests to donate cash to her home church instead of buying her gifts. As a token of her appreciation, she raffled off a digital camera, DVD players and 3 L.E.D. TVs! Wow! Of course I did not win. If I did I would have trooped to the local appliance store and got an L.E.D stand much like the flat screen stand at standsandmounts. Fun party. D4 and I even sang a duet.
