Last week I had the utmost privilege to attend the Emirates Menu Tasting with hubby, Jess and Sarah. An Irish theme is taking place at Flemington Racecourse this year inside the Emirates Birdcage marquee. Irish food, music and stars will be the highlight, so to give us a glimpse of what is to come, a fleet of Christine Ayres Irish Dancers tapped the night away, giving the mahogany floorboards of the Town Hall a decent workout, and a memorable live performance from international Irish singer Brian McFadden. Mischa Barton couldn’t make it , but she will be the Guest of Honour at this year’s Emirates Melbourne Cup. In the meantime, you’ll just have to settle for our humble recording of Brian McFadden’s acoustic rendition of U2’s “All I Want Is You‘, a dedication to his stunning new bride, DJ Vogue Williams, perhaps?
[spoiler title=”中文版”] 上星期我, 丈夫，Jess 和Sarah非常荣幸参加了Emirates（跑马节）菜单品尝会。 今年Flemington赛马场的重要帐篷的主题将会是爱尔兰。因此嘉宾会欣赏爱尔兰美食，音乐和明星的表演。那晚我们很荣幸看到了一队爱尔兰舞者跳了他们民族的舞蹈，声音惊天动地；国际爱尔兰歌手Brian McFadden也为大家献上令人难忘的现场表演。影星Mischa Barton不能来，但她会是今年跑马节的嘉宾。在此， 我们为你录像了Brian McFadden的歌曲，U2的”All I Want Is You’ （译“我要的只是你”），会不会是为了献给他的新娘Vogue Williams?

I had about 10 meetings during the day and didn’t even have time to decide on what to wear (I must admit, long gone are the days when I used to ‘plan’ my outfits). But thankfully, my prayer was answered when the wonderful Pamela Usanto came to the rescue with this white lace dress! The velvet ribbon was added to help me avoid looking like a bridesmaid, and once again the dress beckoned me to go free-range…
Happy Monday lovelies!
