Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:

The advantage of having a huge spread is that people can choose what they like. This is what exactly the situation was like, at today’s Christmas brunch at Olive beach.

The Chefs at the live counters were very interactive & I enjoyed little chats with few of them.
