The 15th birthday party which I was able to attend and felt that I should, turned out to be the social event of the year!
The father of the birthday girl is a local business owner. Louis spent sometime in the states many years ago and when he returned home he opened the only mini super in the village.He also owns a smaller place on the other side of the village. His wife is a taileress and sews amazing costumes for the celebrations and parades held in St Elena. She is very artistic
Next to their mini super, his wife also has a clothing business and haberdashery .Upstairs Louise likes to work out and has installed quite a few workout machines. You sometimes see him running in the evenings.Now his wife has started an arobics class three time a week ……………. i just may pop over to participate one of these days!
They used to have a cyber café too but then the cost of running it was just too much and the service was not always reliable. I can understand this situation as I have the same problem here too.
Nothing was spared for this event even to the extent of remodeling and painting their home.
As aforementioned, I was able to sneak out of the restaurant/hotel around 10.30 in the evening to attend. I only stayed a couple of hours but was served with piña coladas which had been added a blue colouring to match the décor of the place and Arleias dress
It was all thought out beautifully and expertly done even down to the stage setting and dance routines to entertain the guests
I,m sure it was a great success and a proud moment for the parents .
