Ambassadors show off their talent for charity

Once again, the Spouses Head of Mission (Shom) group organized a very successful event at Pardon My French restaurant where several ambassadors displayed their talent all for a good cause. Bravos, among others, go to Singapore Ambassador Gerard Ho who belted several popular ditties, Thai Ambassador Tull Traisorat who sang songs from ‘Notting Hill,’ Argentinian Ambassador Ricardo Bocalandro — together with his guitar — who sang several fast numbers, and the wife of Brazilian Ambassador with her danceable Brazilian songs like “The Girl from Ipanema.”
