" Une fois n'est pas coutume" the adage says but twice... I received a call from Mr. Philip Guibert for an invitation to an impromptu party that he was having Friday July 10th, 2009. Needless to say, I immediately checked my Blackberry and luckily I had no plans for that evening.
That night, I learned quite a few things about this lovely couple, Philip and Carole. They are well known as far as throwing fabulous soirees at a minute notice. I must tell you everything was impeccable, from the flowers in the yard to the bouquets on the dining room table.
There was a bar with all sort of drinks: red & white wines,vodka, rum, gin, tequila, cognac, brandy etc. For me, it was a fresh virgin pina - colada. I had quite a few of it but no one noticed "qu' a chaque fois je fesais le plein ", I loaded it discretely with rum. By 11:00 PM, I was high "like a kite".
The food: there was plenty: from hors d' oeuvres (too many to mention), cheeses, fresh fruits. People were gulping down the "Morue, harensor bien piké" to the point seriously Philip had to intervene and beg people to leave space because a "Tiaka" is coming shortly. I will not say a word about this this dish "Tiaka". This is the best food I think all the guests had in their entire life. I DARE ANYONE TO CONTRADICT THAT STATEMENT".
As far as the guests themselves, there were a lot of celebrities. Among them Philip Dupont and his lovely wife Monique, Gaby St. Louis, Adi Desir from " sonenpibien.com" and his darling wife Nadège, F. Adrien & wife Jessie, Joe Lacasse, Fréro Léon & Mario Nelson. I must stop right here. Those 2 last celebrities are considered to be EXTREMELY dangerous. If one suffers from heart ailment, please stay away. These 2 guys can cause someone to have a heart attack " a force qu' ils savent donner des blagues.They kept us laughing for an hour plus.
Finally, there were 4 musicians that need to be mentioned: with their guitars, they played all the popular songs you can imagine. Every one sang along with them also. It was great soiree and every one had a lovely time. Enjoy the pictures.
