The Canadian Ball
The other night I was invited to attend a "Red and White Ball" at the Canadian Embassy with a lady from work. This may have been the Canadian event of the season, and I had failed to grasp exactly how formal the event would be. Think Oscars in Saudi minus the awards. People were dolled up and glamed out. It was a really great evening with delicious food including pumpkin pie and nanaimo bars, great music (mostly Canadian), and Canada flags galore. As cheesy as it sounds it made me so proud to be amongst my fellow people even if we were partying in a desert on the other side of the world. Amazing, amazing night that I am so thankful I got to attend!!
