Ciliqueen meets the Pharaoh of Egypt

Attending a gala night means you get to dress-to-kill in beautiful outifts and accessories, especially when it is a themed event. Women obviously have a harder time than men finding what gala dress to wear.

Last Saturday night, the International Women's Club (IWC) celebrated their 22nd anniversary at the Jerudong Polo Club. Besides dinner and show, there was an auction of items (sponsored by various companies) of which all proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Brunei Breast Cancer Support Group (BBCSG).

Themed "Movie Icons', I was invited to the wonderful and fun evening. Guess what? I bumped into the Pharaoh of Egypt - alive! and kicking good.. hahaha .. and ohh, he had brought along the last Queen of Egypt - Cleopatra. Among other Hollywood and Bollywood movie icons who came to grace the wonderful evening were James Bond, Brad Pitt, Christine and Don .. who? I was stunned when Angelina Jolie came with her partner - P. Ramlee?? Quite an odd match.. hehe

Committee members rendered some great songs and dances from the movies and one 14-year-old girl named Pei Pei caught my full attention when she sang a Bollywood number with her powerful voice! I wished I could have the courage to dance with her .. hehe. Not forgetting a funny Aunty May injected guests with laughters and smiles while performing her unexpected funny antics.

Hmmm .. did you know that I got a lift home from the Pharaoh himself? LOL
