Marine Ball 2012


It Ball Season again here in Manila and the city has the traffic to prove it!  We braved it last night and headed out to the 2012 Marine Ball all glammed up.  Mega salon treatment, hair and make up’ed later, here are the results of Team Caroline’s valiant efforts.

For those that didn’t read this blog’s report last year, the Marine Ball is the annual celebration of all things Marine, and parties are held worldwide in November.  There’s lots of pageantry, formal dress uniforms,a few speeches, and a very big cake cut with a sword.  And, of course, dancing and the chance to see friends and colleagues all dressed up.

It was fun, but one ball a year is definitely enough for me.  I don’t know how the socialite crowd do it!  Happy 237th birthday Marines!
