The holy water was also splashed on to the offices to welcome good fortune and good health. The event also welcomed honorable guests including former FGS' deans led by Acting President of Mahidol University Prof. Banchong Mahaisavariya, M.D. The event was a success, and the guests enjoyed the luncheon party, with fun activities, such as "2019: The Year in Review" video presentation, fancy dress competition under the theme "cowboys", and entertaining games and lucky draw with prizes. It was such a memorable occasion indeed.
