HOT ON THE HEELS of Bob and Sushi Harilela's golden wedding anniversary came patriarch Hari Harilela's 80th-birthday bash at the family-owned Holiday Inn Golden Mile in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Top-level government types such as the Hong Kong Trade Development Council's Dennis Yau Tat-wang and Anna Lai and Invest Hong Kong's Mike Rowse made the cross-harbour trek to congratulate the sprightly Hari. Social stalwarts Kai-bong and Brenda Chau, accompanied by son Brandon, were also spotted nibbling on the full spread of food. Among the event's distinguished guests were Macanese couple Roger and Margaret Lobo and former home affairs secretary Dennis Bray, with his wife Marjorie. The Harilela grandchildren were also out in force, including the well-heeled and smartly turned out Parmanand siblings Nisha, Jay and Sashim.
