TELL US ABOUT A MO­MENT WHERE YOU FELT A GREAT CEL­E­BRA­TION WAS IN OR­DER. When my fam­ily and I moved into our new house. We’d spent more than two years de­sign­ing it and over­see­ing its con­struc­tion. It also marked a new chap­ter in my life as I was pre­par­ing to leave the cor­po­rate world soon af­ter. KEY EL­E­MENTS FOR A GREAT PARTY? Fun-lov­ing peo­ple with a com­mon in­ter­est. Qual­ity F&B with a good va­ri­ety of al­co­hol. And, re­lax­ing back­ground mu­sic. BEST PARTY YOU’VE BEEN TO? My 60th birth­day party. We had lots of fun with peo­ple who just let their in­hi­bi­tions go and had fun with one an­other. And of course, there was plenty of al­co­hol! YOU EN­JOY DANC­ING? I started danc­ing in the early 1990s. The plea­sur­able feel­ing of har­mony com­bined with the flow of body move­ment and mu­sic led me to take up danc­ing. I would pick Fas­ci­na­tion as my favourite piece of mu­sic. It not only pulls me onto the dance floor but also makes me feel like go­ing back to dance school to do bet­ter. WHAT IS THE GEN­TLE­MAN’S SE­CRET TO SUC­CESS? When in your prime, never be afraid to change or take risks to achieve your goals as long as you have as­sessed and be pre­pared for the down­side. I had made nu­mer­ous such de­ci­sions in my younger days. YOUR EV­ERY­DAY WINS? Wak­ing up healthy. En­joy­ing a cup of nice Hong Kong milk tea pre­pared by my wife ev­ery morn­ing
