Nice to see all the known faces getting together in one place. Specially faces of my bro, sis-in-law and neice after a very long time and of course, Phillip my classmate, Tejju and others. Keep the spirit of getting together alive. The more you know each other the more you grow in love and affection. The joy of sharing with others is truly great. Well done. Keep it up.
