A lot of guests dressed to the nine turned up and the media was there too. Saw Grace the editor from Nuyou magazine. We got to know Danny the stage designer for the event from Pico. Nice meeting you Danny. Also met a new found friend from Germany. It was nice meeting you too.
We were served cocktails and canapes. I drank a glass of red wine, a glass of champagne and a glass of fruit punch. Of course also ate lots of canapes. Cheers. Each invited guests also received a goodie bag.

The gala opening started with Kean Ng, the Chairman of SJF, giving an opening speech to the invited guests, followed by the Jewel runway show by the beautiful models. I enjoyed it. The theme for 2008 is "The Nature of Beauty". This is also the first time that the events are divided into 2 showcase - Spring/Summer - showing Pearls and Gem and Autumn Winter - showing Diamonds and Gold.
