The stage was set. The ambience was cosy and casual. The guests were relaxed and elegantly attired.
On a warm, sunny afternoon of January 26, 2010 and within the cool interiors of theCafe of Royal Selangor Show Factory, more than 70 handsome an
d beautiful guests showed up, to join in the celebration of the successful fruition of my second book, “YES, YOU CAN LOOK SLIMMER – Size Doesn’t Matter, Shape Does”.
The afternoon started with the arrival of guests. Old friends getting together. New friends getting to know one another. Exchanging news, exchanging information, exchanging stories.
The charming and charismatic emcee, Angelene, help the audience captive with her wits and antics.
Then came the highlight – the CHRISTIANING of “YES, YOU CAN LOOK SLIMMER”. The huge mock-up book was beautifully encased with huge gold ribbons. At the tug of a little string, the ribbons came apart and exposed the full view of the book cover. It was an enchanting moment!
After which, we had a short “couch session” on how to use the book and a quick diagnosis of the body shape of a couple of volunteers.
Fellowship and refreshments followed after the launch. The guests stayed on for a tete-a-tete session.
It was a joyful and touching day for me.
My family is all back from Melbourne, to celebrate this event with me. My beautiful SWET team came out in full force, to organize, coordinate, oversee, etc (in short, they did everything for me). The team spirit and the willingness to go the extra mile, is something every leader would love to have in his/her team. I am filled with gratitude that I am blessed with such a team.
I am touched by the presence of my guests, especially friends and clients who took time off their work to grace the afternoon’s event. That meant a lot to me.
Thank you to all, who have supported in one way or another, contributed in one way or another, those who came and those who wanted to come but not able to make it, my smart & sharp editor, Kenneth Shee, my lovely family, my valued team members, my lovely AICI and Toastmasters friends, my respected clients – THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
