I travelled to Stellenbosch today for few meetings. Lunchtime I spent frantically finalising some materials in the street side restaurant – but it sure beats being cooped up in the office.

One weekend with 250 friends is not enough – but then again 1 year with 500 was not enough either. New memories were made.
- Friday house party – which proved NOTHING has changed in 5 years – we still live on champagne, pizza and laughter
- Doing another case in class – which proved something has changed, as the entire class actually read the case before the discussion
- Celebrating in style in Fontainebleau chateau – which was definitely a change from all the nights spent in fliplops and shorts in Singapore
- Hanging out in the lawn and cafeteria – which proved that even through many of us have moved, changed jobs, married and multiplied, nothing really has changed.
Let’s do many more mini-reunions before the next full-blown party 5 years from now.

Day 62 – Networking in INSEAD
The year in INSEAD was one of the best experiences of my life – so I definitely did not want to miss the reunion. About 250 classmates showed up – and some others were greatly missed! Another 5 years to the next one.
Day 59 – Woman in the metro
Paris is amazing for people watching. This lady sat opposite to me, wet from the rain outside and tired from the long day at work. Few minutes of closing your eyes can be relaxing. When she got off, she smiled.
