searching the extrodinary in something ordinary

Saturday, September 23, 2006

When you get down to it, balls (the dance kind mind u) are really superficial things. You dress up to mingle around and have food which u don't get to choose and maybe watch a few nice performances if any and take loads of pictures. If you are lucky, the performace may be something actually entertaining and the food might just turn out to be something nice. That is the main agenda for the singles. Well as i have mentioned b4, i don't claimed that i wasn't superficial. And then there are the couples which get to dress up and be in a world of their own. So basically when you come down to it, its the company that makes the difference both ways.

Honestly i wasn't planning to go this yr around since i alr did the dress up, mingle, watch not too bad performance and eat so-so food last year. But then again this time around was the one and last time that the mechatron gang was to attend a ball minus a few ppl la ;). So with some urging from some fellas ma go lo. Like i say, the company is a deciding factor. This time around it was at the palace of the golden horses. Sounds wow but i think i rather prefer last yr's venue. All in all i think IOI marriot had a nicer setting, better food. And non related, but last yr's performance was better too. This yr's lucky draw prizes were way better. But oh well, no one in our group won anything. Some examples of the prizes ..... sony digi cam, mp4 player, mp3 player and some other prices that were so-so la. I would have loved to have gotten the cam though. Oh well :P.

So anyways as usual with the girls the whole 'event' starts of with the whole make up-dress up ordeal. Yeah guys will go "so ma fan" coz they just need to put on their nice suits spray some cologne if they want and grab the car keys and drive off. Ah forget about argueing whether there is a point to putting on makeup there is for every person saying yay there will be another saying nay. So to everyone their own. So yeah esther and shiaw pei went to this place in summit to get their make up and hair done and shih mun went to adonis in pyramid for makeup and snips? for hair. The package for the first 2 girls were rm 75 while shih mun had makeup done for rm 55 and hair for rm 55 as well. As for me, i was scrimping so i just did my hair for RM 35. I decided that if i were to look terrible at least i didnt have to pay for it ;) ha ha ha. Which according to shiaw pei was a wise choice since she hated her do. But i think she looked alright. Just that the lady was such a bussiness minded person she really kept to the minimum for a RM 75 package which she claimed was a special offer for students what was usually a rm 120 package. But honestly how much does it cost for some makeup and a glitter spray on the hair which she wanted to charge an extra RM 2 for. And as for me i did my makeup at home, thanks to michelle's improptu makeup lessons. I think it turned out alright. Judge for urself in the pics below, although my face got kinda oily with all the hurrying around! And the salon i went to was pretty good. I got what i want and they actually put some beads on my hair and glitter as well with no extra charge. Funny thing was the guy that started on my hair disappeared just after blowing dry my hair. Was wondering why he disappeared. Turns out he had stomachache. And once again the hairdresser commented on how thick was my hair although my mom complains i have very little. Go figure.

Anyways we were done at 450, reached uni at 515 and were on our way. Don't ask me why so early, not my choice. But i guess partly to avoid the jam as it is. I think they should just have it in Sunway, saves the trouble of traveling so far. That or have it in KL anyways else defeats the purpose. Spent forever waiting and waiting. As u know, no malaysian functions starts on time. So was time for pictures since got time. I dont have the group pics of the whole gang though. That has got to wait. Got to meet some of the guy's gfs. They are all quite sweet girls. And two of them were high school sweet hearts. While the other one just got together. Can see the diff ;). Some one suggested kajang satay after the ball but that was scrapped. Everyone was poofed. So it was home we went after a little more photo taking. All in all not too bad a night. Pics below.



On the way to uni after hair do.

On the way to palace of the golden horses. And since Seng Kiat was driving Esther who drove us from summit got to sit at the back and take a pic with me! Shiaw Pei was still sulking about her make up so she didnt want to take a pic. But later oblidged to Seng Kiat's request. The pic is with him though.
