Jewels of society out to add shine to Piaget Cup
THE glitterati showed good form at Sha Tin for the Piaget Cup when Yves and Helga Piaget of the owning family were on hand to host them in the tastefully decorated grandstand box.
The guests were looking to spend their money in two ways - the men at the betting counters and the women at the showcase opposite, which exhibited desirable baubles form the French jeweller.
Among the guests were Major-General Guy Watkins, Gulu and Semaramis Lalvani, Peter Edwards, Peggy Liu, Nouhad and Chantal Slim, and Pascale and Laurent Aublin.
Top man Harilela WHEN Bharat Ratna, the in-house magazine for the Indian community feted Hari Harilela as its man of the year, its gossip columnist ''Noseyparker'' (under the clever guise of a junior member of the Harilela clan) was on hand to give quite a racy and humorous account of the life and times of the awardee.
Among the guests present was last year's winner, Dubai businessman Ram Buxani, who flew into town especially for the occasion.
