"Love and Destiny" at the Botanic Garden

Finally over! Phew...
I'm sure you'd have notice that it was pouring on Saturday. Most everyone there thought it was probably gonna get postponed. Was still drizzling by 5.45pm but the amazing thing was people starting streaming to the spectators area holding umbrellas and wearing raincoats. We were surprised at the turn out, even the Minister didn't mind sitting in the rain to watch. At that moment something stirred and I won't deny we all felt good to be part of this creative ensemble cast. It was a good show.
***Applause applause***
