MBS Auckland Alumni CNY Gathering 9 February 2008


MBS Auckland Alumni CNY Gathering

It was indeed the event that everyone was looking forward to – the CNY pot-luck gathering of MBS Auckland alumni on 9 February 2008 held at the 7-acre Olivale Grove at Pukekohe located at south Auckland hosted by Michael & Jamie Fu. The air was thick with excitement and festivities. Contrary to the weather forecast, the warm summer evening was clear with only slightly overcast skies. The perfect setting for an awesome affair outdoors.

Guests started arriving shortly after 5 pm. The early birds were taken around the olive trees and given an in-depth briefing by Michael on the health benefits of freshly pressed olives as well as answering the many questions about running a farm. By 6.30 pm all guests have arrived and the wives were seen busy at the kitchen putting the finishing touches to their masterpieces. The guys on the other hand were preoccupied catching up with one another over glasses of wine. Children were playing at the hay bales, frolicking with Michael’s dogs or just running around the vast and beautiful property.

There were about 40 people in all including spouses, relatives, friends and children who were at the very enjoyable and scrumptious pot-luck gathering.
