Great idea, let's have all future TORONTO GTGs in Montreal. What's next US Elections in Dubai and British knightings in China?


You missed a hell of a night Patrick, it was definately a night to remember.

Food pictures:

Laurance's fried calamari

The soup... Forgot what it was called.

Getting very hungry..... Maybe we should eat the watches?

Seafood Linguine

Angus Steak

Red Snapper fillet (I had this, it was excellent)

I forgot pictures of dessert, it was so good I dived right into it before I could get my camera.

Now the watches:









Roger shots:




And that's all folks.

OK, so I'm going to be somewhat redundant, but here are the best of my pics:


A quartet of Sport Rolexes

[IMG]
A quintet of Sport Rolexes

Does anyone notice the common denominator here?


Steineart's homage to the GMT.


Table 1: someone will have to fill in the first two on the left; from the back end on the left: Launch Mini (John); Avalon (Al) and Jacqui; Atomic (Johnny)


Table 2: from the left: Chris; Joel; Ed Wu; wonghunchong (Thomas); Lawrence Yap; Mrs. Chris


Paneristi table (Carlos is on the right)


Table 5: Pete; roadcarver (Vernon); Roger


Our host, Nesam and Ed Wu. The restaurant was The Liberty; the food was first rate and the service was outstanding.


The collection - anyone care to guess the $$ sitting on the table?


The Roger shot


Beautiful swimmers

A great time was had by all.

Yep. Landed about 12:45 PM and got home by 1:15 PM. Now I'm just staying home nursing this cold I picked this weekend. Probably from following after Roger as he tried to track down every AP ROO in the damned city.

BTW, Roger and I went out for breakfast this morning on the way to the airport. First time I've ever had bacon and eggs and dim sum at the same time. But the funny thing is, it was quite good.

I love dim sum, so I'm glad I got to have some up there. I did enjoy Toronto and would like to get back there again sometime. If it is SARS, maybe it'' give me an excuse to stay home from work tomorrow.

I know it's a lot, the PAM 233 ($10,700), GP ww.tc ($12,500), Rolex Daydate ($23,000), Rolex Daytona ($10,000), Roger Dubuis Easy Diver ($14,000), AP Royal Oak($10,000), IWC Ingenieur ($8,000), UN Maxi Marine Diver ($6,000), IWC Chrono ($6,000), JLC Master Moon ($8,000) and the Glashutte ($10,000?)already add up to $120,000 US or so retail value.

I don't know, I'm guessing $250,000 US? Let's average the retail of each Panerai and Rolex in there to be worth $4,000 or $5,000.
