In the beginning...

*Edit* for pictures from official photographer

This year's KPMG ball was held at Sheraton Perth, which brings back memories... as it was this same place where darling and I shared our first dance at the Curtin ISC Ball two years ago, and I got charmed since... ;)

Li-Ann tried out some sophisticated hair curlers. This is the work-in-progress...

And this is the stunning result!

I think I have lost weight again, my suit somehow felt bigger compared to last year. Sigh... the effects of Ironman training...

The theme was Welcome to the Circus... we had an opening act, consisting of a stilt walker, some clowns and a pretty talented young lady who hula hooped a ring of fire!

But not many people were dressed according to theme unlike previous years. I supposed circus wear is not very flattering.

Alan, one of my senior managers and his partner, Sharon were in our table. And the four troublemakers, Pete, Ed, Shree and Dale. Daniel was meant to come with his wife, Elle but they didn't turn up. Good thing Sharon was around to keep Li-Ann company.

Entree was bread rolls and cateloni. Mains were either rib eye beef or barramundi fillet. You can pretty much guess what Li-Ann and myself chose, two very different tastes. For dessert, we had this mini fruit basket with ice cream.

Apart from the opening act, there wasn't much on the agenda. People just socialised and danced throughout, until midnight. But we had fun nonetheless. Seeing our managers and partners winding down, being able to meet their significant other. And watching my division partner-in-charge doing (or rather attempting to do) ballroom dancing and spinning twirlies... priceless!

Daylight savings started today, more sunlight! Yippee!
