Platinum-haired party girl Michelle Lamb (aka art director for IComm) organized a sensational Car Rally to roar in her 40th birthday recently. More like the Amazing Race than a rally, teamsters who participated were given sets of clues to find their way from south to central and north Bali on a promise of a party and lavish prizes.
Teams who rallied together included The Flintsonesâ€™ Nigel and Jackie Ames with Jo McFarlane, who won the overall rally and a stay at the Ã¼ber-exclusive Batu Karang resort on Lembongan island; Show No Mercyâ€™s Louise Beaty; Cyberboy Shane Peterson; and Carol Taylor and Mitchell Booth, who crossed the finishing line with a bronze pig and hilarious photo-documentation to win Most Creative Team.
Afterwards a swish affair was held in the Joglo at the stunning Ubud Botanical Gardens, where an assorted array of Bali and visiting international guests enjoyed divine Chitty Chitty Bang Bang canapÃ©s and imbibed specially blended cocktails for the event, including black vodka Spare Tyres and Led Foot Lychee Martinis. Looking fabulous of course was the guest of honor, who blew out 40 flames on an appropriately created Michelin Man cake to some serious cheers and well wishes.
Seen revved up and roaring were Dee Mytton and Pablo Gentile; Zenergyâ€™s Bonnie and Jennifer; the gorgeous Tina Ardie and Josh; Dr. Ian Gregory; Como Shambala Resortâ€™s exec chef Chris Miller; Wendy Thomas; Jill Gosher; DJ Emon; Kevin Jackson; and Sita James.
