If you were lucky to get a ticket to last nights Susu Mama’s charity ball then you would have had a great night, and if you didn’t, you missed out on a wonderful event.
This years theme was 1920’s Prohibition, so we all got “locked in” to the Crowne Plaza’s Ballroom, for a 3 course meal, entertainment (dancers and a magician) and a band to dance the night away. I wish I had some real deal Hokonui Moonshine for the night, but not even the local brew “Steam” made it – truth be told, Steam is nasty!
There was the normal door prize, a whole lot of raffles, charity auction, and the beau and belle of the ball prize. I think I was setup, as I won the beau prize for best dressed male – and I just grabbed some clothes out of the closet…! Not sure if that makes me an OG (Original Gangster (read: You got nothin coming)), but it was certainly a little embarrassing as people had put some massive effort into dressing up for the night. In fact I think it really was the best dressed ball 🙂
When they publish some photos I will get them up..
So, one of the must thing you must bring with you to Moresby is clothing for black tie events, guys a bow tie makes you look damn sharp 😉
I think the next major ball (aside from the K50,000 a ticket charity event tonight – yes, K50,000 A TICKET! ). Is the Kiwi Club ball – which is sure to be a sellout again.
Get your dancin shoes on!
