EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS😊😊😊
On the 4th of October, twenty three of the Class of 64, some along with their spouses,👩❤️💋👩👨👩👦👦👩👩👦👦👨👨👦👦👩👦👦 gathered at Eden Hotel Beruwala to celebrate another year of entering the hallowed gates of the Medical Faculty in the year 1964.
In the evening we had a great Singalong 🎤 🎵 🎶 in the Function Room with our greatly talented own DJ Faizal who never fails to entertain us with his beautiful voice and great choice of songs . While some took to the dance floor, l myself had to sit and watch them dance💃🏼🕺🏽💃🏼🕺🏽💃🏼🕺🏽as I could not take part because of back problems. due to recently diagnosed scoliosis.
As expected the food provided 🥘🥘🥘🥘 was of a high standard and we ate drank and enjoyed ourselves far away right into the night.🌚🌑
My grateful thanks 🙏🙏 go to Sam who introduced us to Hotel Eden. Without him we would have never chosen this as the venue which for the third time has provided us with wonderful hospitality.
The following morning we had a lovely “chit chat “ with all of us gathered around the swimming pool and it was lovely to see such a great comraderie.This was possible because of the small number and we all felt like members of one great family. 👨👩👧👧👨👩👧👧👨👩👧👧👨👩👧👧👨👩👧👧👨👩👧👧👨👩👧👧 ,
The afternoon was spent sailing down the Maddu river followed by a visit to a moon stone mine where we learnt how men toiled in the deep mines digging for moonstones.
On our return from this trip we had the most fantastic and enjoyable time of our lives reminiscing the past and many of us narrating funny incidents at medical college where we were students aspiring to be great doctors of the future….it was hilarious and some skeletons in our cupboards too were exposed which made us end in stitches of laughter. This evening was a great one and as the clock struck midnight 🕕🕕 it was time for us to return to our comfortable beds. We did feel the absence of Dharma who would have contributed to the fun in a great way with his witty jokes. We wish him a speedy tecovery💐💐
Sunday morning we had to depart after breakfast but with very heavy hearts .
As we hugged each other and wished “good bye” we all agreed again that this was a great joyful reunion and an unforgettable one, and that we should do this again next year same time at the same venue.
All good things had to come to an end and on Sunday we bade farewell to Eden and to our friends promising each other to “keep in touch”
May the good Lord bless and keep you till we meet again.
Herewith I am posting photos of our great gathering.
