1st time to………..Shanghai Dolly!

And Joy & me love it!!

I believe it will be our new clubbing ground, NOT that we always go clubbing though.

Due to our own different commitments, actually we dont meet up very often. But whenever we meet, we always have loads to catch up and not to mention, have loads of fun!

As usual, Joy and me hanged around BQ area for beer as warm up and catching up, as it’s more conducive for chatting. Also, the free ktv dont hurt. =P And usually, after few jugs of beer, Joy will want to change venue, mostly to club. Haha. We were actually both pretty sian of the usuals….like St James etc. Frankly speaking, our favourite still remained as the old Madam Wong. But it had already closed down. The old double-o was not too bad until the crowd got younger and younger. Joy detests young crowd. Hahaha. She finds them(the young dandies) not very…appealing! Lol.

And I suddenly thought of Shanghai Dolly which is located at Clarke Quay. I saw it before when I took cab from Clarke Quay before but has never went in. So I asked Joy whether wanna give it a try and she said go ahead. Surprisingly, there was no cover charge on a PH eve and we simply strode in.

Once inside, we simply love the disco music which they were playing. =D One look around, we saw mixture of different age groups. I’m not that particular with the crowd(unless they come ka-jiao me) because I love dancing to the music more. So music’s more important to me. But I’m relieved that the crowd were mostly not very young, which is more of Joy’s preference. 😛

So I told her, “You always complained crowd too young. Now here many aunties and uncles, you happy liao la?”

Then she “Yayaya!” Lol.

I dont really care lah but I added, “Good also lah, among the aunties, we’re considered young. Muahahahahaha!” and she agreed. Lol.

So we stayed and ordered a jug of beer. Holy shit, coming S$50 for 1 jug of tiger. No difference from having a cover charge. Oh well, at least it’s fun. Every 1 hour interval(I think), there were band performance. Something like dragonfly’s style. But their songs were more ancient. Lol. I kinda enjoyed them. Haha. *paiseh* Well, I’m semi-ancient, can or not?! =P I like the band too! I think the guitar/drum/keyboard players all played very well.

I think many people were inside because of the free entry but few bought drinks. Hence, we’re even able to get a table with a mere jug of tiger. Lol. Made some new friends and shifted to an even bigger table with sofa seats. The girls were pretty friendly and not snobbish at all. It’s really a pleasant surprise, considering…considering most girls are not friendly with strangers bought to their table in a club. Haha. I talked to one and her name is Tiffany. When I asked about her age, I almost fainted.

22

So “fresh”. I mean, YOUNG, was the first thought that came to mind.

When Tiff saw my exaggerated action of flopping back into the cushions, she promptly asked for our ages which…….of course I’m not willing to say lah! Embarrassing k?!

However, I whispered to Joy, “Oei, she’s 22 you know.”

Joy’s expression was like “Wtf?” HAHAHA

Anyway, I asked Tiff, “Eh….are you the youngest in the group or you’re all the same age?”

“Oh…..She’s(pointing to another girl) 1 year older than me, 23. ”

ZzzzZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

“Then that guy is the OLDEST. 24 years old.”

(=.=)”””””””””””””””””

Me: “Erm, okie.”

Joy and me were feeling pretty ridiculous because there’s so many people closer to our age in the club and yet we still end up in a group which was SO MUCH younger than us. MeH~!

Anyway, the young chit kept pressed for our age and when we finally told her, she said things like, “Oh really dont look like…bla bla” those kinda things.

She should have seen me in broad daylight and without makeup manz. Bah~

Drinks were plentiful but we were real full so we didnt drink much with them too. Before we knew it, it was already 4am! Oh my god!

Great times flies fast!

Alright, here’s a galore of pictures. Of course they’re from my Lumix LX5.

I love my camera!! No more dark, blur and grainy pictures please! =D

Again, slideshow lah huh~ =P Hover on pics for captions.

Joy has so many coolz(hip hop style) and cute expressions! =)

I’m so freaking tired.

(Applied “off” days from blog for 1 week. =P)

Booze~~

I’m so lazy. Gonna jam few outings into 1 post again. Muahahaha. Nahz, not as if many people are reading. Merely for my own “recording” else what’s life without memories?

It was a friday out with Rain again, together with Pearl. Dearie was always teasing me, so this coming fri or sat meeting your dear Rain? Oh yes, I’m like so used to meeting her every weekend for a drink until it’s weird if I dont! Haha. Actually we’re usually out on Sat because we can have a longer night when Rain wasnt too tired after her work. But this time round, it was Pearl who jio Rain to club, who in turn jio me. Pearl is more of a clubbing person while Rain and me are more of pubbing. We both promised we can only club after enough booze.

And so, we ended up at “that bar” again. It was seriously crowded everytime we go so I guess there’s no need to promote it excessively. So, as usual, we ordered towers and drank ourselves silly. I’m really really not used to Pearl who dont drink at all, despite her looking every inch a pro drinker. So much so, we cant even play games with her because we cant think of a penalty for her! We enjoyed ourselves alot until Pearl got hungry. Instead of ordering, she said she’s going tout to tabao some food back to the bar.

I almost doubted my eye sight when she strode back and revealed what she bought.

ROTI PRATA!!

Wah lau eh!!

Damn mouth watering lor.

Looking at her eager face just made me feel like laughing. But her enthu face mirrored a disappointed and troubled expression when she voiced, “How am I going to contain the curry?”, holding up a big, plump juicy pack.

“No problem!” I cooed.

I strode back with a rock glass and put on the table.

“There you are!”

And she poured the curry into the glass and began to munch her prata happily. Yes Rain, it’s me who came up with this absurd idea! Hahaha. Rain even blogged, “Okie, if you ever drank from a glass which reeked of curry flavour, it’s the same glass.” Muahahaha!

Somehow, Rain got alittle emo and finally Pearl relented by drinking to cheer her up. And when she did, she threw out all her prata. Poor thing. Soon, she surrendered and said she had to leave. =(

1 happy thing was we saw Kelis which Rain and me havent saw in ages. Since my wedding! However, I had little to talk as I “cannot-make-it” liao. Simply wasnt very sober for any conversation. =( Rain too, as she happily fled. I really cant recall how and when she left actually. =X I only managed to stay awhile…and soon I surrendered too. After bidding Kelis good-bye, I walked to the spot where dearie was waiting for me to send me home.

I got damn “hot” when I realised I cant find him. And while waiting for him alone, I was constantly pestered by bo-liao people. That was like adding oil to fire and I snapped like a rubberband after I finally found dearie. Arghh!! It’s no fun waiting alone especially when I’m not sober.

Lesson learnt. Pre-set a meeting point for pick-up(if any) before you drink.

Oh I dont have pictures of this outing but I had 2 from our past outing which Rain tagged me in facebook. Haha.


With sexy babe Pearl


With the 2 gorgeous babes

Wow, didnt realise I lo-soh so much. Shall blog about our picnic on the next entry then.

Sat drinks nite cum Post Bday Dimsum Brunch

Sat was out with my fave drinking kakki Rain. As much as I enjoyed my night out with the girls at Coffee Bar K for cocktails last Sat, it suddenly dawned on me that it’s extremely illogical when I spent a much higher amount on much lesser and lighter drinks. Doesnt makes sense loh, I told Rain. =P Yes, that experience was nice but still, I guess I’m not a “cocktail” person. =P Wine, beer, liquor, spirits, yes. But not cocktails.

So back to BQ we went. And we tried a new bar. It was awesome. Beside from the pure white modern tables and deco with lovely blue lights, every table has their individual touch-screen LCD to select their ktv songs. Fantastic or what? Hee. No more struggling of writing chinese song titles on papers and the trouble of submitting to the waitresses. We just “touch touch touch” and wait for our songs to come. What’s more, they serve San Miguel. It’s my first time trying out the beer and I love it! It was very smooth, not too sweet, not too light nor heavy.

I always find Heineken too light(no beer taste) while Tiger too bitter. Carlsberg is not bad and of course Hoegarden is the best. But BQ dont sell it. And I seriously prefer San Miguel to Hoegarden. I just love the taste. Somemore, they’re selling a tower(2.5jugs) at only $45(after happy hr). We had 2 towers….and guess what…they made a mistake and only billed us 1 tower. =P

I really enjoyed myself that night and got to know a new friend, Pearl. She is Rain’s friend and is really easy to talk to. She struck me as a very candid and confident person who’s not afraid to say what she wants. I really admire that alot because I’m so sick of hypocrites around me. We had alot of fun and I think we would have MORE fun if she drinks! She only drinks plain water. *faints*. Nevertheless, we had an awesome time. Erm…we even adjourned to Clarke Quay….went 2 clubs before heading home. Was is Zirca? Geez…I’m so…”forgetful”. =P I only remembered we didnt pay for any cover and had loads of dancing. =D

Great Night. Looking forward to the next session!

Reached home at 5am…………..and woke up at 11+am to get ready for Sunday Brunch!

********************************************************************
Lovely couple KS and Lin are so nice to treat me to a post bday sunday brunch!

So sweet and thoughtful right? Actually I’m pretty chin-chai one, as I 100% respect the boss who’s paying. Haha Lin said KS meant to treat me long ago as I’m their 红娘 , a.k.a, I’m the one who introduced them. Lol. It’s certainly my pleasure and I’m so very happy for them now that they’re blissful and stable together.

So far they’re the only couple whom I’ve successfully pull the red strings. =S Hope to get more lovely people together. =D

Oh ya if you ask me which cuisine I prefer for a sunday brunch, I’ll definitely choose piping hot dim-sum as I have been craving it for the longest time. =D And the more important reason is, they’re easier on the stomach for someone who woke up late, had alot of drinks the previous night and probably cant eat much. =P

So we end up at Taste Paradise as highly raved by ladyironchef. Erm…I found the review grossly overrated…highly suspected it’s a paid review=P

The deco was indeed impressive but I didnt take alot of pics because I was so damn famished after Lin and I reached. Mr KS caught up with us much later. I hate my camera. The shots with flash are not nice as they make the colours dull. And shots without flash are usually blur. We took many shots but only the ones I took of the couple and 1 group shot managed to be decently clear.

Though the dim-sum brunch was not the best I’ve tasted, but I really really appreciate Mr KS and Lin for the post bday treat! =D Oh they also gave me Isetan vouchers too(forgot to take picture)! Thank you very much! Next time we can try elsewhere for good dim-sum! =) The Asia grand restaurant at Odeon Tower….Slurps!

Joyous Events

Last weekend was a whirlwind of events.

Argghhh….still having slight muscular cramp in my left hand as I’m typing now. Dont ask me why I always pain here pain there! I also dont wish too. =( Perhaps didnt sleep properly and weigh too much on my left hand while sleeping. I have phobia of sleeping on my back due to previous 被鬼压 experiences. Hence, I always sleep on my side. Bought pain-relieving cream yesterday. This is pretty good, highly recommended. Non-greasy at all, it did, however, has a mobiko-smell.


Bengay

Okok, back to topic. On Sat, Beauty Credit has yet another high-tea session with many discounts. See how attractive is the poster in the email.

I’m of course looking at the FOOD! Korean dim-sum!

Alas, but it was major disappointment for they tasted worse than overnight sushi and I dont quite remember any of those in the picture being served. =P

Anyway, it was a pretty bad experience because there were hoards of aunties pushing one another inside the tiny shop. This time round, the goodies bag was nothing nothing to rave about. The previous one was pretty good though.

So well, erm, I also dont quite remember what I bought….oh ya…I bought the Q10 shower foam, Q10 body salt and a milk peeling toner(60% off). Total came up to around a hundred after different discounts. The Q10 products(20-30% off) work especially well, you know, for my aging skin. And it really leaves the skin smooth.

I do understand I need to diligently apply lotion la…..but really getting super lazy lately. Shriveling into a prune soon. =P

After the high-tea, we went down to Boss’s house for her daughter’s full month celebration. Baby is cute with lots of hair. Dearie and me were super envious. Muahahahaha. As usual, the gambling addicts were all there playing blackjack. I played half round of mahjiong and left with dearie. No choice, the piggie was fast asleep on the couch and I dont wish to look like the heartless gambling wife. My “reputaion” is bad enough in the agency, thanks to my darling hubby loh. He always act “innocent victim”…. =P

Come Sunday night, it was Christine’s & Ivan’s wedding! Met many long-time-no-see friends and it was a joy to witness Chris’s big day. I’m so so so happy for her! She looked exceptionally lovely in her petite frame with her intricately-designed gowns. Her photoshoot pictures are also stunning, very whimsical and gothic-style. I like!

The big event was being held at Furama Riverfront Hotel, Mercury ballroom. Yeah, it was the same hotel where I held my ROM. The stage set-up was really beautiful, my favourite among all the weddings which I’ve attended. It’s very whimsical and fairytale-liked with pure white satins, icy frosted branches topped with crystals and blue roses! As my table was at the far end, I was paiseh to go up to the front to snap pictures. However, I did snapped a picture of the floating(ornaments along the aisle). Pretty good food. Beautiful bride, handsome groom, lovely friends. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

After the wedding, a couple of us(total 5) went Boat Quay to catch up on some drinks. It has really been forever since we pub, drink and sing together. We would have stayed longer till 2 or 3 am if Karen and me dont have morning events the next day. Nevermind, meet up soon!

(P/S Too bad Cel and Sean didnt came for the wedding as well as join for drinks because Cel wasnt feeling well due to her pregnancy. Hope she recover soon! Kudos to all preggie mummies!)

Dragonfly’s anniversary

Few days ago was that insect-clubbing place’s anniversary. Dragonfly, I meant. 😛 Iv was kind enough to extend the invitation to me. I seldom join the gang for clubbing unless there are occasions. On anniversaries, there will be be performances and free flow so I went.

Seriously, until now I’m still not sure which is which club as they’re so many clubs in St James. I roughly know which is Movida and Dragonfly(and now, Powerhouse) but sometimes I dont even know where I am because they kept move around, especially when I’m SUCH a direction idiot. =.= We were queuing for drinks when I asked Ce where were we so that I can messaged WY. I think the person behind me must have fainted. 😛

Anyway, the freeflow was, serious manz, as in, pretty thick with alcohol, the real thing. I think I’ve never tasted freeflows as thick as the ones for this occasion. The martell green tea and burbon coke. Damn. Even the smell can make me faint. Double-o is a close second in terms of quality for their freeflows. Speaking of which, I haven go there in ages. Reminiscence anyone? Ha.

There were varieties too, as in the different housepours and wines. But as we’re closer to the counter which serves housepour(wines at different counter), we did not have wine for the night. Which was lucky…else I think more people will K.O and some might K.O even earlier. Haha. For the music wise, I was struck dumb when the 1st song cruised into my ears was 被爱的女人 by Coco. Love her, AND her songs. Despite it’s weird listening to sentimental songs in a club, I did enjoy a few classics such as 值得 by Sammi etc. As the night progress, the songs became more retro, like 失恋无罪 etc.

Most of us were merely playing fist games and drinking, or else having girl’s talk since..I dont know…kinda weird dancing to chinese songs. And the highlight of the night would be in the midst of our chat(between me and WY), we suddenly saw a FAT spider-man-like creature hanging in the air on some spider cobweb thingy. Before I can make out WTF is that UFO, that “spider-man” creature suddenly spread his “wings” and starts to FLUTTER them! *pengz* So is he a spider or a butterfly? Or dragonfly? And BEFORE I can come to a conclusion, glittery snowflakes starts to fall like Christmas, machiam 演唱会 like that. Hahaha.

WY and I were laughing so hard that I dont even remember what was the song which was playing. Anyway, when that fat “spider-man” finally “alighted”, he began to strip to his..only…glittery underwear of red and blue. Okie that reminded me of “SUPER MAN” again. This year’s themes is about super heroes eh? Albeit fat ones. He started to sing super super retro songs which I’ll be embarrassed to even admit that I recognized them.

After which, we adjourned to Plush at Boat Quay for more drinks. WY went home as she’s tired and cant drink much as she drove. I was like, “of all days, you choose to drive on a free-flow night?” =.= Ce and Se surrendered and went off too, heard Ce puked few times in the toilet already. I cant believe that because she’s our QUEEN! I’ve never seen her puke before. Okie perhaps because I’m lousy and always passed out before her. HAHA.

I wont say I have ALOT to drink there but the few different types sure makes me high. And I didnt even realised at all….until WY asked out loud when we’re outside the club, infront of soOooo many people, “why are you behaving like a small girl?” OMG, I’m so embarrassed. We hardly club together and she has never seen this side of me…so she was surprised, and I’m of course, embarrassed. I know myself, I will become…kinda…hmm…you know….like a little girl lah..whiny and stuff when I’m high. Wahahaha. Definitely more likable than the usual cool and poised lady. LOL. But I think it’s certified…guys TRULY like whiny girls more. DUhz!

We had beer at Plush. Few more rounds of games and I remembered playing a game of pool. I think I won. Hmm ya. Hahaha Anyway…sigh…I thought I can return home in great condition but….haiz…I puked. 4 times. Thank god dearie not angry with me. =P Oh I tried taking pictures with my phone but they’re either too dark or over-exposed. *shrugged*

And you know the funniest thing was, Ter called me while we were in Plush. When he said he’s still in St James, I was shocked because all of us thought he went home! Obviously he passed out SOMEWHERE at the club and only just awaken! Guess what, he still took a cab down and joined us at Plush. Haha.

Eventually we took cab back together since he stayed Jurong. So long again, till the next club, which wont be coming soon. 🙂

No more drinks..

Sigh. Cant sleep so came here to blog. Dont understand why I can sleep like a log last time after drinking but nowadays I cant, because stomach always feel uncomfortable. Did not drank alot but I wished I drank lesser. What can I do when I have 2 sisters, where Jy always dupe my drinks whenever I went ladies while the other Kel always make me drink when playing group 5-10? Hmmm….what a long sentence. Haha. Haiz..Jy wanted to finish her bottle of Chivas…so keep pour. =.=

And I’m dreading my hen’s night…they say will “give me a good time”. =( Then then Kel said she must throw me into the water too like how she was thrown last time at Cafe Del Mar. =( But but that time is Jy asked the angmor to throw one leh! Not me leh….yuan you tou…zhai you zhu….boowoo…But Jy kept deny. Dont know she really forgot or act one. Kns! Anyway that time I also kanna thrown into the water hor…in fact only Liz and G didnt. That G, hid in the toilet for 30minutes then dare to come out. Booooo! Jy said we will get our dues on G’s hen’s night. Haha.

Anyway, I’m sure it was an unforgettable hen’s night for Kel. It was the perfect excuse, or reason for Jy to ask the angmors to throw Kel into the water, I remembered vividly. Unforgettable mah. =P

Important lesson learnt.

Hen’s night venue must be NO WHERE NEAR WATER.

AND ALCOHOL.

*nods*

Haiz. Central kopitiam also got beer. Maybe have to hen’s night at my house liao. Haha. But doubt they allow it. =S

We took some pictures at the pub just now but not convenient to post now as it’s difficult to grope in the dark. Damn funny. You guys see a giant lobster before? I’ll show you next time.

Dearie has been lemming to go back Intercontinental Hotel again, or a short break in whichever style. So do I. =( But it’s difficult…… Actually I have a simpler wish, which is to stay home and rest for the weekend. For both weekends. I’m lately glued to old movies and have been watching them online. Despite the technology might have been a tad old, the action moves are still pretty outstanding. And comedies, they wont be out of style. I’ve also realised most old movies are less heavy in storyline. However, the “thrill” factor is there, especially for horror vampires shows. And still funny.

Vickki is feeling better and more or less back to her old self. But she still sleeps more than she usually does. Hmmm….good thing is she can jump and run liao.
