I never thought i’d do it but here i am, making an update on a working day. I hate to say this but working really does drain the energy out of you. God, i sound like such an old fart. And this is not even my real job!
I dare not imagine how my blog will end up once i start working for real. But come to think of it, i don’t think it’ll be as bad as working in retail. I mean, at least you get the weekends off if you’re working an office job. When you’re in retail, you have to work almost everyday including weekends, even more so if it’s in a mall.
So anyway, i made a decision to go catch Showtek at Zouk last Friday. It’s been a while since i stepped into a club and even more so since i started working retail.
And since i’m a fan of quick updates, well…
Artistic blur, ha!
Mario x Luigi!
So get this.
I spent the whole day at work, standing and serving customers, for 8 hours. Then, i leave work at around 10.30pm and reach home by 11 to super slut up real quick and head to the club. By the time the night was over and all, i was in bed at 5.30am.
The next day, i had to wake up at 10.30am to get ready for my afternoon shift. IT WAS HARD.
But do i regret it?
Nope. Sometimes we gotta decide whether some things are worth the squeeze. Sacrificing my precious resting time for a night out like that was definitely worth it cause i had so much fun.
Hey, better abuse your youth while you still have it, right!
Here are some party pictures from last month. It was a Friday and we had Dada Life down all the way from Sweden.
Dada Life is known for their high energy live sets and they’re known for giving out inflatables shaped as bananas and champagne bottles. One of their philosophies includes the saying:
Always kick out the epic motherfucker. Always.
Ningku was making fun of Charmander bout being “preggers” haha!

Arriving beautiful. Leaving ugly.
New year’s eve 2011. Now that’s something worth sharing.
You know, i was really looking forward to Chinese New Year this year. Only because i thought it would be something interesting to blog about. It’s the whole idea of wearing pretty new clothes, visiting friends and relatives, angpaus and whatnots.
Sounded like something this blog needs, right?
Well obviously it didn’t work out. I was practically sick for the whole month of January, which includes Chinese New Year. I didn’t have the liberty to consume whatever i want. From Chinese New Year cookies and snacks to alcohol. Not to mention that i was weak and tired most of the time.
You know what, come to think of it.. screw that. Even if i wasn’t sick, my Chinese New Year would still be boring anyways. LOL! /yaoming
So anyway, i figured that my new year’s eve was a lot more interesting compared to Chinese New Year. Mainly because it was a special date that my sister’s boyfriend chose to propose to her. The proposal took about a month to plan. And it wasn’t easy one since we were communicating solely through Whatsapp.
The plan was complicated and constantly changing. The month of December was filled with mental stress coming from all directions. Up until the actual proposal was done.
To sum things up, i booked a suite at Hotel Maya and lead my sister to think that it was for our family to stay for the weekend. The truth is, the suite is for the both of them instead. She had no idea that her boyfriend will be coming from Singapore to surprise her with a proposal.
My job was to keep her occupied the whole day. It would’ve been relatively easy to do if it wasn’t for that massive hangover i woke up with that Saturday and my sister causing me mental stress early in the morning.
But the hangover eventually eased up when we checked into the suite that Saturday afternoon. The suite was beautiful. An instant mood lifter.

Best view anyone can ask for on new year’s eve
The suite is perfect for couples. There’s a great view and mirrors at the right places, if you know what i mean. I owe it to Kel Li for hooking me up with such a sweet suite ;)
I tried to keep the room as clean as possible by not throwing my things around. After all my stay there was only temporary until Albert shows up.
Nonetheless, i had one of the most laid back Saturdays ever.
And what would a stay at a hotel be if you didn’t go to the pool.
As the evening approaches, we both returned to our room and got ready for our family dinner.
When it was almost dinner time, i left our room to secretly meet up with Albert at the lobby. I gave him the room key and then it was all up to him.
Let’s just say that after that, everyone was already seated at the dinner table with champagne as the two walked in Maya Brasserie. One of which was my sister with a big shiny rock on her finger :)
While we toasted to the engagement, we also toasted to Pepsi for her birthday. New year’s even will always equals to mummy’s birthday. It’s tradition :)
And we all know what comes after a new year’s eve dinner..

I still can’t believe my sister is getting married this year! So happy for the both of them! I can’t wait to plan my sister’s hen’s night. I’ll make sure it has everything she would want :)
I must say, this year’s Halloween was a lot better compared to the other Halloween celebrations that i’ve been to in the past couple of years. Maybe it’s because i finally got to dress up in my all time “fantasy” costume – THE SAILOR!
But of course, other factors contributed as well.
My memory of Halloween is quite a bad one. My Halloweens often involve being squished in a tight place with loads of strangers. It just drains out all the fun factor. Thankfully this year was a decent one! :)
Friday, 29th October
We had a Halloween party at Bakita and i went as a captain. And uh.. my idea on my outfit was some what Girls’ Generation inspired. Hurhurhurhurhur
Mr Nasty and GuruGuru
Stutu / Francis
Simone the candy piratess
Charmander the soldier
Allan and friend
Hoong is dressed as Alex DeLarge from Clockwork Orange. Only cool people would know that.
Don’t look at me, i had to google it too haha!
Bakita that night was pretty stuffy. I was kinda sweating my makeup off. It’s probably because the place was filled with people and the ventilation was a little off. But everything was all decent fun until..
Jovin showed up with Britney
We hit off instantly
Le FooLu babysitting Britney
BabyGiap’s new found love?
Jovin’s “costume” is a life jacket that he stole from an airplane. Don’t be like him, kids!
Now doesn’t this look like a scene from a particular movie?
Me as the captain of my Titanic and Jovin as one of the passengers who jumped off the ship with his life float, Britney. LOL!
Haha don’t mind me.
And le Mario with her “cat” ears
Britney was certainly the highlight of the night
Oh and i think i got pretty drunk that night. We always go overboard at Bakita. It’s like one of the best places to get drunk cause of all the drink promos that they have.
Saturday, 30th October
The usual main event at Zouk.
Zouk is always crowded with people so i didn’t take much pictures. I was pretty much laying off the alcohol too after getting jacked up on the previous night.
Mario fixing her Hitler mustache
My costume for that night was actually an impulse buy from Vanity Dreams. I just bought the slutty sailor school girl uniform without thinking bout whether would i actually wear it out or not.
Oh well, no turning back since i already paid for it right. The moment i placed my order, i already devised a plan on how to turn the stereotype slutty school girl around.
I decided to do.. Babydoll from Suckerpunch! I even had the samurai sword goin’ on. I’m glad that some people are able to recognize who i was trying to dress up as, phew!
Here’s a couple more pictures from Charmander.
I’m not really creative when it comes to Halloween. And since i finally achieved my sailor fantasy, who knows what’s next for next year?
Oh my, it’s amazing how time flies!
It’s the first day of December and i’m presenting you with something that’s dated back in.. OCTOBER! ヾ(＠ ゜▽ ゜＠) ﾉ
Sigh.. i guess i really am losing my touch. I kinda wish that i would blog more efficiently but this illness that i’m having is seriously getting to me.
And this illness is called.. laziness.
Anyway, remember i told you guys that there was more to Hoongmao’s birthday? Well, there’s two reasons why we only went for dinner on the day of his actual birthday:
1. It was a weekday
2. He had to work after :(
And besides, we were gonna have a couple of ang mohs down to party with over the weekend!
On Friday 14.10.11, we had a BAXX x PHD party over at Milk Club featuring Thilo & Evanti and Soul-T. I’m guessing that most of you guys probably won’t be familiar with these names unless you’re into the hard dance scene.
But it’s okay, you guys don’t need to know them too well either（＾ｖ＾）
Anyway, this party was one of the crazier ones that i’ve been to. It was the perfect combination of alcohol, energy and music. Mix them all up together and you get one hell of a night.

Baby’s got it goin’ on with that fab hairstyle, don’t you think?
Ganjaguru. Or as how i’d like to call him, Ningku Chia
Charmander! I choose you!
Thilo & Evanti from Netherlands
Well i’m not gonna pretend that i know all about them and what they do, but what i do know is that they’ve played at DefQon 1 back in Netherlands. DefQon 1 is a massive hard dance festival organized by Q-dance. Many would consider it an honour to play at such an event. So that makes Thilo & Evanti.. pretty damn good, right?
Know what, i would really love to experience a true hardstyle rave. A real massive one straight up in the Netherlands. The one like.. QLIMAX! Which is also organized by Q-dance.
Ughhh thinking bout it makes my adrenaline pump. I want it bad enough to be wishing for it on my birthday.
Sei guai lou! (￣▽￣)
But let me tell you this – they’re both real fun to have around.
Thilo is pretty much the hamsap party animal while Evanti (his real name is Vincent) is more of a Good Guy Greg. They both know how to party and they really can drink.
Which reminds me.. i never got to ask Vincent why is his stage name Evanti instead of.. well, Vincent.
Soul-T is the founder and father of the legendary Pure Hard Dance (PHD) in Melbourne. Enough said.
Oh, and he farts a lot.
I see what you did there..
Don’t you guys just love freebiesss?!
Ah Ben vs. Kok “Niekon” Wing
It’s almost tradition to end the night with Ben and Kok Wing in a game of chai wui.
It was a crazy crazy night indeed. Good thing i was in my Converse. We then had our usual nasi lemak for supper next to BV2. Ah.. cherry on top.
FAST FORWARD TO THE NEXT DAY!
It’s somewhat tradition to bring our guests out to Zouk on a Saturday night. Also, everyone seems to be out to get Hoongmao cause of his birthday.
Legend has it, that once upon a time he was able to take down eight flamings and who knows how many bottles of hard liquor, and still emerge from those who have fallen.
Legend has it.
Apparently, Thilo and Vincent LOVE flamings. They kept buying flamings for themselves and
we i kept giving them dirty looks cause they loco.
Most wanted for the night
Brendan / KenFoo / Vincent / Ningku / Thilo
And that concludes our party times with our ang moh guests!
I also took the liberty of including a video of Qlimax 2010 just in case any of you are curious on what Qlimax is like. Wouldn’t want you to miss out on the awesomeness anyways :)
Drives me nuts.
