Frame Moooi Award Gala Party at Milan

Following on from the earlier entry, me and Yoshi took the opportunity to visit Milan and joined the Frame Moooi Award Gala Party.
Another reason is to visit the annual Milan Salone, which I will cover in tomorrow's entry.

So the Gala Party took place at Milan's entertainment venue, Magazzini Generali (which apparently is one of the most famous night club at Milan. On our way there the taxi driver asked us if we were good dancers..).

Although we were top 10 in the 891 submissions, unfortunately we did not take the award home.. hey, there is always next year!
