This weekend has been a particularly entertaining one. Mell had landed on Thursday, and the gang decided to head to MOS for Chivas Global Underground Party.
The sound system at MOS must be the best of any clubs I’ve been, you can literally feel the bass on the floor. The place was also properly air conditioned, and with indoor smoking disallowed, it was very pleasant even when the crowd came in.
Kim said the bass is very sleep inducing?
Mell, Horng, Gareth, Kim, Suan, Selina, and I had an awesome time, with Mell maybe having a bit of a too awesome night (can’t walk and all), and Kim also took the liberty to have a nice one hour nap in the club. It was a while since we had such a fun time.
Saturday we went to Digital Mall to grab a Wii console complete with 2 guitars, Wii Fit board, a couple controllers with nunchuk, and over a dozen games. I had also bought over Gareth’s PS2 since Mell transported her set of mics & SingStar discs.
Guitar Hero and SingStar Party (notice Horng’s Air Guitar Hero?)
Guitar Hero is the bestest shit since sliced Gardenia Butterscotch bread, the game made a fake musician out of anyone with some decent hand-eye coordination (just maybe not Suan, she refused to play it). I like how the game says “REAL GUITAR HERO PLAYS REAL GUITAR” too.
Well, I guess we’re not playing air guitar hero like how Horng’s doing in the picture above.
When our fingers were all tired from too much guitar playing, it was time for some vocal challenge with SingStar. It is basically like karaoke with a scoreline attached to it. I have to say that now it is confirmed scientifically (at least by PS2), that Horng’s vocal sucked the most, followed by myself, and Gareth. Suan was very good, as with Rachel, Mell, and Kim.
The game also has player vs player and team vs team modes, super fun! Then Gareth had to point out that Meat Loaf’s “I Will Do Anything For Love” always reminded him of anal sex… teruk.
Oh, and lastly, the OSIM uSqueez is not for everyone, especially if you’re super ticklish.
Tuesday Suan, Horng, and I are going heading to Krabi to watch the UEFA Champions League final on the beach. We had won this trip playing flash games at a Heineken event last year, woohoo!
First of all, I want to thank everyone for coming and made the fifth installment of our annual Xmas Eve Party a blasting success. There were some 40 people who turned up, quite a few bottles of liquors and wines brought by you, and again, Tuborg sponsored loads of free beer with their beer girl Siao Ling joining the party as well. It was awesome.
Due to the hectic schedule a week (including a trip to Singapore) prior to the party, my housemates and I only managed to put up some minor decoration and set up the place in the last 2 hours. I bought some x’mas lights for my two x’mas trees, reuse the deco, got some snacks, mixers, a Coleman huge ice box filled with ice from 7-11 and we were good to go.
free Tuborg beer, and lotsa socializing
The party got started at around 9pm with Terence, Chris, and Anthony arriving first. Sheryl, Cindy, and Simon arrived there after, and joined by Eiling, who managed to fetch Huai Bin to my place despite being already 3/4 drunk before the party even got started.
Suan, Alan, and Wei Yi were around when our favorite Tuborg girl Siao Ling showed up with all those beer just as my new ice box was yearning for some attention. We quickly set things up and the party really got started right after that.
As the resident alcohol pusher, Terence was doing a fine job ensuring everyone a fair chance to get royally drunk by mixing 2 huge glasses of alcohol laden concoction named Life and Death. Erna was very fortunate to have a few gulps and ended up missing half the party by passionately hugging my gate with a really stoned facial expression. Elfie was embarassed that her fellow Sabahan can’t hold her drinks.
There were some new faces in this year’s party, Shamsul, AC, Faye, Chris, Anthony, Rebecca, Jenson, Aireen, Daniel, and Debra are friends of friends or people whom I got to know via the blog but never met prior to this party.
Cindy, Selina, Siao Ling, Tock, Yee Hou, Firdy, Huai Bin, Elfie, Michael, Eiling, Erna, and Zoe are certainly are friends who attended the party for the first time. I got to know some of them via blog, random events, and via other friends.
There are also those who are no stranger to our little yearly celebration, Reta, Naufal, Nicholas, Alan, Adrian, Rachel, Kelvin, and Mohan all came to the party at least once before.
Then there is the group of my closest friends who were here since the get go. My housemate Horng, Suanie, Gareth, Kim, Huey Fang and Chan, and Terence. I am glad that my exgf Sheryl was able to make it after being away in Europe for post graduate studies for the past two years.
some of the more embarassing gift exchange moments
We didn’t actually have a dress theme this year. Instead, the legendary gift exchange has a little twist in it: It has to be something you can wear, and you must wear it after opening. This idea came from Horng, blame him if you were one of the victims.
Some of the more messed up gifts include a purple bra (I hope the size fits you, Elfie), disposable undearwear, a few boxes of condoms (Huai Bin wore one in public, scaring off all the girls), numerous underwear, socks & stockings, headgear, and lipsticks. The gift exchange was pretty intense, very dangerous.
the Heineken hat exchanged hands 5 times, stupid Michael!
The most saught after gift item was this Heineken hat brought by Michael. The hat was snatched up 5 times and ended up back to Michael just because Elfie wanted it (that’s wh4, stupid Michael). I think we should make it a rule that you can’t pick your own gift next year onwards.
some of the things people do when they are slightly influenced
Things got a little wilder after the gift exchange session as the blood alcohol mixture gets a bit out of hand for a few people. There’s this particular “Patrick” who can’t seem to walk properly and ended up passed out all over the place. The best thing was he kept saying “careful! careful! the earth is moving” and “are you guys ok?” everytime right before he passed out. Patrick is seen sleeping in two places with “James” sitting in both places in the collage above.
There were also some toe licking actions by Faye and Huai Bin, Siao Ling was, tragically, being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The party was great, and it was only appropriate that we had to end it after the cops came at 3:30am saying we were a bit too loud. Some of us then headed to Ming Tien for an early morning breakfast where Rachel promptly vomit out the wan tan mee after consumption. I think she was eager to join Patrick and James as the third person to throw up.
Again, thanks for coming, Merry Christmas and see you guys next year!
