Sunday World - - Shwashwi -

OH, but one can never get enough of this life of fab­u­los­ity and op­u­lence. Though it s tem­po­rary, how

’ else do you ex­plain moi s pres­ence at the Bel­la­gio Flag­ship Bou­tique in Sandton City?

Moi went to learn about the in­no­va­tion and pre­ci­sion of the Ulysse Nardin tech­ni­cal mas­ter­pieces.

For those of you in the dark, that s a shock­ingly

’ pricey brand of watches. So high are the fig­ures I d run

’ outta ink if I noted them down.

Enough free ad­ver­tis­ing let s

– ’ get to the guests...

There was less than a hand­ful of celebs, which was some­how re­fresh­ing. See­ing the same faces and fake smiles can be some­what de­press­ing any­ways.

Ran­dall Abra­hams was MC for the night and he read his speech well.

Must say it was both shock­ing and amaz­ing to see him smile.

Such a gen­uine grin!

Clearly those big shots had a pos­i­tive ef­fect on him. The brand s

’ pres­i­dent Mr Pa­trik Hoffman flew in all the way from Switzer­land to give a brief speech, brag­ging about the brand. Didn t hear the

’ words though cos I

‘ was so in awe of the ac­cent. Sooo sexy.

Then there was Gerry and hubby Kerry Els­don who were all over the place tak­ing pics with ev­ery­one, specif­i­cally the guests with deep pock­ets.

Ac­tu­ally, it was Mrs Els­don who kept drag­ging her poor hubby around.

That woman just lu­uur ves the spot­light.

Hot as you are Gerry, you were start­ing to make moi dizzy.

So­cial but­ter­flies Linda Moeketsi and Shakes Mok­gotsi looked so bored they were short of burst­ing into tears.

Linda was the epit­ome of anti-so­cial as he spent the en­tire evening ro­manc­ing his phone.

While eye­ing Linda, Sh­washwi overheard Shakes moan­ing... some­thing about the Halaal food with it s vir

’ gin cock­tails.

In case you are ig­no­rant like my side­kick, a vir­gin cock­tail has no al­co­hol in it. You should ve seen

’ his face. You won t guess

’ who else was there? Tshepo De­sando, who looked yum in a dark grey suit. One would ve

’ mis­taken him for one of the Bel­la­gio ex­ecs.

Just one ques­tion though: why did you leave your wife Rami Chuene be­hind?

The flaw­less evening was al­most ru­ined by some tan­nie who re­fused to give some of the guests their gift bags. Ter­ri­bly taste­less.

Apart from that, it was one hel­luva classy event. Thanks, guys.
