Farewell Dinner for Caroline Ang

James (PWM President) presenting a momento to Caroline
Last night, James Lee, the President of PWM, organized a farewell dinner for Caroline, one of PWM's committee members who had served PWM for the past five years. However, as this is not an "official" function, all those who attended, except for the "guest of honour" chipped in to pay for the dinner. Caroline will be leaving Brunei for good as she will be making Kuala Lumpur her base and this function was held in honour of her invaluable contributions to PWM. The venue was the Luna Lounge located on the fourth floor of a newly renovated boutique hotel in the Brunei capital. This is the first time I attended a function at Luna Lounge which is very cosy and suitable for small gatherings of up to 30 people. All the best, Caroline and keep us updated on your Facebook profile!
