GEORGE TOWN: The infectious Cyndi Lauper 1980s mega hit, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, set the mood for a day of revelry and footloose dancing.

Lovely ladies dressed in pink filled up the ballroom at the E&O Hotel at brunch time for an event themed "Luscious Ladies Day in Shades of Pink".

Organised by the Penang Irish Association (Pia) for the third year running, the get-together of more than 200 members and expatriates was a "feel-good day" for the ladies to take time out among themselves.

Sub-themed "Fun in the Sun", the women also raised funds for a good cause.

October is a breast cancer awareness month.

So, the ladies were out in full force to collect much-needed funds for Mount Miriam Cancer Hospital and Rumah Hospice Penang.

Pia teamed up with FoodFriends and the hotel to ensure guests had a day of pampering, makeovers and lots of fun.

Besides the generous spread of breakfast fare, there were demonstrations by the hotel's Chef Bob on how to decorate a gingerbread man with flair.

There were also a makeover demonstration, beauty, wellness and shopping zones, a silent auction and a raffles draw.

The highlight of the day was the Catwalk Show.

The fashion parade had international models sashaying down the catwalk to showcase the season's new look.

The collection, from beach wear to cocktail dresses, was from three top Penang designers and five exclusive boutiques.

The models also displayed various kinds of accessories.

For thirst-quenchers, the Cosmo Bar served champagne and Fun in the Sun cocktails.

Among those present were Pia president Maggie Territt, who was commended in holding the event.
