The exclusive boutique where you can find rare and valuable jewels; my PDG companions.

Phew! This was more grueling than I envisaged. Sweated a lot and grumbled a bit at the fate of us-Newbies! But, before I scare away any prospective new members, let me hasten to add that I also had loads of fun. We have a group of excellent mentors who have this uncanny knack to identify the best for their flock. I hope they all have fulltime careers in the corporate world; they certainly have the attributes of making outstanding and successful managers. *Thumbsup*

This challenge forced me to know my classmates. Honestly, beside Morgan who is my buddy, I didn’t feel any affinity for them before. Overnight, that has changed. Till yesterday, names which were mere competitors to be reckoned with have today become a bunch of smiling, loving, caring and multi-talented personalities. I feel much closer to them now than ever before. I wish this group the very best.
