My Latest VC (&A!)

Dear Fellow Loungers,

It is with immense pleasure that I can announce to my fellow Loungers my engagement to Miss Ruby Chan!

In Taiwanese tradition, the man also gets a ring!  Lucky me!  We chose to celebrate our love with VC of course - but with the extra &A!

My Latest VC (&A!)

Best regards, and Happy Chinese New Year for 2010! 
Prosperity and good health to all,
JAMES & RUBY

Who's that ugly guy standing next to such a gorgeous woman??
02/14/2010 - 05:19
Just kidding of course! (about you...not her) Congratulations to both of you. Long life and much happiness! Happy New Year! Best Wishes, Joseph PS: Nice camera BTW Is that Tiger balm Gardes in the background?
Re: Who's that ugly guy standing next to such a gorgeous woman??
02/15/2010 - 05:57
Hi Joseph! Haha! Yap, I am a lucky guy alright to find such a lovely lady! Thaks for the compliment about my camera.  It is now a discontinued model...unfortunately someone at the company decided that it was not worthwhile moving forward with a 35mm SLR format, but instead going for a medium format SLR system...making all my lenses etc. obsolete in one fell swoop!  Hopefully what I have will last me many more years to come, or else I will be forced to save up for the upgrade! As for the background, the photo was taken in Nantou, Taiwan.  The statue represents long life and happiness for lovers. BTW, did you get the iphone in the end?  What do you think of the ipad? Best wishes to you for 2010! JAMES

02/16/2010 - 16:32
Hi James, First, I can't think of a more appropriate statue to stand in front of! Long life and happiness to you both!! I di get the phone and many thanks once again for your help. I had it with me at the SIHH and in Paris and it worked flawlessly with a French sim chip. I'm not sure what to think about the iPad. It loos like a lot of glitz and basically a larger iPhone. Once they become available, I'll check it out. But a new iPhone (4.0) is coming this spring! All the Best, Joseph
Congratulations to the happy couple

Dear Hourglass, Thank you for your kind wishes!  We are having a wonderful time in Taiwan! Best regards to you, JAMES
Congrats James and Ruby!!!

This is really great news - you must be in 7th heaven!!! As great as the news are, I must admit that I am not that surprised: I saw "the writting on the wall" when I learned that Ruby had travelled across the world to take photos of the London HL dinner, because you couldn't make it... I don't think -  sorry, I know! - my wife (who loves me very much -  I think!) would have shown such commitment. YOu are a lucky man James, and I wish you both the best of luck and all the happiness in the world!  It was very nice to meet Ruby - hopefully next time I'll get to see both of you! PS: I do like very much the VC"&A" touch Cheers,  Francois
Re: Congrats James and Ruby!!!
02/16/2010 - 05:32
Hi Francois, Thanks for your kind message!  Yes, I must admit that Ruby was very much new to things Vacheron Constantin before the HL dinner in London last year.  I had to educate her with many introductions to the Maison - (the Goodies section of the website was very useful in this regard!).  I look forward to meeting with you at a future VC event... Kind regards and best wishes for 2010! JAMES
