Model Answer:
Social events create the opportunities to get familiarity and interact with unfamiliar people and also the best way to taste traditional foods. I, recently, went to a marriage anniversary celebration of my colleague living in Islamabad and enjoyed greatly.

Mr. Abdur Rahman Khan, my senior colleague, invited few of his intimate companions to the celebration. It was his 9th year of togetherness with his wife, two cute kids and other members of the family. The event was set after the evening and ended with a dinner hosted by Mr. Khan and his adorable wife. I was feeling lucky for being invited to the event. There were many other guests present at the event and most of them were the relatives of Mr. Khan. Besides, the traditional biryani and other associated foods were great too.

Mr. Khan invited the CEO of our office with three other officials including me. Though it was a formal event, he invited us in an informal manner as if it is nothing to him, but we were surprised appearing at his residence. The CEO of our office was late for the event and reached after a few minutes later of us. After reaching, Mr. Khan offered us a warm welcome to his home. The interior of his apartment was stunningly decorated with expensive and pleasant furniture and show pieces and the guests were busy in chatting.  He introduced us to all and then, I with the other colleagues started discussing different issues with the present guests till the food was served.

In fact, we were strangers among the relatives of Mr. Khan. Therefore, it was an awkward situation for us. But our CEO is an interesting man and he managed the environment and started telling jokes over different issues. The jokes were helpful to melt down the ice among the guests and us. The CEO, then, started a competition and announced for a small prize for the winner. Since there were kids present at the event, he requested all to avoid inappropriate jokes before the kids. The joke telling competition continued for half an hour and I was the winner for my smallest and funniest joke.

I have really enjoyed the event and especially the foods were delicious. Mr. Khan’s wife arranged for chicken biryani and I think I have taken the best ever cooked biryani there. Despite being an Indian dish, biryani is highly popular in Pakistan and the rice and meats were so soft that they melted on mouth instantly. Some other mouth-watering foods were also present but I took biryani more than any other food items. The ceremony was wonderful and turned more enjoyable for the spontaneous participation of the guests in the joke competition. The event is a memorable one for me.
