Back in Singapore and my head is still swimming with the awesome week we've had in London! There were so many highlights... where should I start?

Ahh, London. Good do be back again.

After settling down for a couple of days doing touristy things, it was time to get things kickstarted proper! And what a start it was. An awesome Indian restaurant with incredible food.

Man, if that was the start, I can't wait for what came next!

Meeting up for the coach to Warwick, and meeting more Ristis for the first time!

It was great to get out into the country, and what a glorious sight awaited.

Just chilling and chatting in the sun.

Hmm, rather apt.

On to the evening's proceedings.

This would become a very important piece of equipment.

Speaking with this man on the left was one of the highlights for me!!!

As was meeting this man on the right.

Jassies holding court.

And on to dinner at the Union Club.

Nice to meet this man on the left.

And the first time seeing a Brother's new baby.

Simply beautiful.

Lunch at 32 Great Queen Street - what amazing British food!!!

And on to the event itself! What an awesome venue!!! A perfect choice in my mind (more on this later).

Pre-dinner drinks.

The queen made a guest appearance. "One prefers ammo..." I hear ya!

Now about the venue... WOW!

St Martin-in-the-Fields is one of the most famous non-cathedral churches in London, with a history dating back to the year 1222. The Crypt at St Martin-in-the-Fields features beautiful 18th century architecture brick-vaulted ceilings and historic tombstones beneath your feet. Can you beat that???! I think not.

It is one of those venues that only London can provide. Quintessential, unique and memorable. It is one of those places which I have walked past countless times when I lived in London, and have heard of, but never been into. WOW! What a privilege to be back and on P-DAY!!!

Gush stepping up for charity - well done!!!

Jassies handing over the P-Day mantle to the Montreal crew.

And I walked away with something nice!

What's a mother-of-all GTGs without the mother-of-all table shots?
[linked image]

What a night! What a week!!! An incredible job done by the orgnanising team - you have made everything perfect. Words cannot say what a meaningful and memorable time I had. Thank you. Thank you so much..
