SeniorsAloud's major social event of the year "Celebrating the 60s" on 31 May, 2014, turned out way beyond our expectations. The ballroom at the Royal Selangor Club was filled to capacity with seniors (and juniors) all eager to enjoy a fun-filled evening of good food, good music and good company. Awesome might be a better word.
Everyone received a generous goody bag filled with 15 packets of Indocafe coffee mix, plus a red coffee mug, also samples of Oat B22 and a complimentary copy of the latest edition of The Heat newsmagazine.
Some came dressed in the fashion trends of the 60s, complete with A-Go-Go boots and beehive hair styles. Others were more formally attired in coats and ties. We had an on-the-spot contest for the best 60s look. The two eventual winners won bouquets of flowers donated by Kats Florist.
Dinner was a feast of 25 dishes, including one table for vegetarians. Live music was provided by Alfred Ho and The Small Stones. Alfred also took song requests for charity. His music was so infectious he had the dance floor packed to capacity with happy feet and happy voices singing along to hit songs from our teenage years.
Everyone waited eagerly for the lucky draw to see who would win one of the 40 attractive prizes. The top three prizes were two return tickets to Bali, a beautifully hand-crafted didgeridoo flown in all the way from Melbourne, and a ukulele that some folks were hoping to win for their ukulele class.
