Comments

  1. Hi Grace, Thank you very much for your positive and encouraging words. Your words of wisdom are much appreciated. I am not aware of this award until now. In fact, few of my friends and family members congratulated me by surprise, but I have not actually got formal notification nor attended any presentation of medal etc. etc. You must be in a better position to brief me what had happened or what need to be done. Your response to this note would be greatly appreciated.
    Kind regards
    Violet
