High in the Sky

Yesterday HOFWs joined a soft launch party thrown by the AAMA (Asia America Multi-technology Association).  Founded in 1979, formerly known as Asian American Manufacturers Association, it is Silicon Valley’s largest and most established non-profit organization dedicated to the Asia American high-tech community.

We were lucky enough to be asked to sponsor a wine tasting during the two hour shindig.  We presented our wine and our lovely foods to very interesting and important people, such as the chairman of the MTR!!! We were all well dressed. Lauren and I had our heels, and Sean even wore a tie.

It was a very trendy and fancy event on the 27th floor of the Club Lusitano in Central.  There were very nice foods such as melon and parma, salmon canapĂ©, veggie spicy samosas, and egg tarts! Lauren bestilled her love of the tarts from my first day here, and I’m hooked.

For the drinks, people tasted our wines (of course!) and were each allowed one courtesy drink upon arrival (not ours).
