PBM and BBM Dinner at SG country club.

Last night, Sunday 26th Oct '08, I was at the Serangoon Gardens Country Club for this Dinner function. It was hosted by Edward Chye and D2, the 2 popular,likeable and hardworking grassroot leaders of SG constituency who were awarded the PBM and the BBM respectively by the President of Singapore in this years' National Day Awards. This Dinner function was their way of thanking their fellow grassroot volunteers and others for the friendship and support they have received through the all areas of their voluntary work. It was held at the Heliconia Room of the club. Above: Edward speaking.

Mrs Lim Hwee Hua, Senior Minister of State ( Finance ) and (Transport)and MP for S Gardens was the Guest-of-Honour. She spoke off the cuff..that these 2 awardees truly deserved their awards for the way they have managed to gel the people in the various committees in their effort to foster a better community for all.

A sumptious buffet spread was laid out for all the guests . As they dined, music was provided by the Professional duo of musicians....the Bistro. On guitar was Paul while Wan played the Double bass.
They were very competent entertainers and easily put the diners into a nice, relaxed mood with their smooth singing and music.
Having a good "feel" of the crowd is very important and they played with that uppermost in their mind.
In such a setting as described here, can a good ukulele player fit in and some more spice to the music?
To find out...must see my next post!
