An 81st Birthday Celebration

At about 7.30pm onwards, we had the flow of guests arriving and walking straight to granny's table. Most people were confused as to which of the two granny's were celebrating the event. It was the lady on the right. Warm birthday greetings and gifts in the forms of "angpaos", nice wrapped items and flowers were presented to her.

My sister and I took turns in going around the entire restaurant, taking random pictures of people or group photos.

There is our very suave emcee who welcomed and thanked the guests, getting the evening of family bonding started.

Like all birthday occasions, the moment of the event came; the cake cutting.

And, there is the great woman who brought up her many grandchildren to become strong individuals. She has shared with me some of the most interesting life stories which I value and respect with much awe.
