Starting the year on a celebratory note was the recent Reunion Dinner at the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple that was filled with prayer, gratitude, beautifully laid out food as well as entertainment.

The seamlessly-orchestrated annual event had the venerable Abbess Manshin share the message of ‘each one cultivating a heart that blossoms in all seasons’.

An army of young and enthusiastic volunteers worked behind-the-scenes with clockwork precision to make sure that the 200 guests were well looked after.

Special guests that included councillor Sharon Stewart, MPs Chris Luxon and Simeon Brown, Howick Local Board chair Adele White, Inspector Rakesh Naidoo, Principal of Baverstock Oaks School Genee Crowley – amongst others – were first treated to the Magnificence in Embroidery exhibition at the Fo Guang Art Gallery followed by dinner.

The picture-perfect embroidery exhibition which is on until April 11 (entry free, open to the public) had guests use a magnifying glass to see the fine stitches in the stunning works of art.
