Wowwwwwza, last night was fun! Best party yet, not that the 18th I went to last week was BAD, because it wasn’t, it’s just… this time I was with mostly girls that ENJOYED dancing! I had more fun this time because we were on the dancefloor more AND they had no shame, which meant I could dance like I do back in Singapore! It was so nice to get to about 60% same as Singapore dancing. I miss dancing. I would go to 100%, I know they won’t judge- in fact they’re better dancers than I am… it’s just I 1) don’t know the girls well enough yet and 2) didn’t really want to dance like that in front of the boys.
Anyway, I’ll start at the very beginning (a very good place to start)… I showed up and all the girls were in dresses and heels- as opposed to my jeans and flats. Oh dear. Oh well, whatever, I felt good and most of the girls were halfway to drunk so they didn’t care. The birthday girl got me a drink the second I walked in- the party at her place consisted of about 15 people… ish? It was a really cool atmosphere, loud music, guys laughing and DJ-ing the loudest rap music they could find and the girls just going wild in the 3x3m space on the patio.
I only had 3 drinks there and discovered my new poison: Raspberry Vodka. Tastes so good with sprite! So yeah… I’m excited to see where this new discovery will take me. I didn’t even get tipsy before we left, which was perfectly fine by me, the group I was with was more than drunk enough for all of us 😛
When we hit the Valley we headed to this club called “Oh Hello”, I’d never been before and my-oh-my I loved it! It’s gorgeous on the inside, it reminded me of the party in “Across the Universe” where Bono sings “I Am the Walrus”. We didn’t stay long though, before I knew it we’d been whisked back to “Lemur”… I think I’m spelling it wrong… oh well… anyway, I’ve been there everytime I’ve gone out. It’s always free entry and I’m beginning to wonder how they stay open if they’re not charging entry fees??
Hummm, we spent most of the night in there before heading to “Our Place”. It was quite late by then (around 1-ish maybe? I knowww, that’s nothing compared to home, but here it’s deemed late- I guess when clubs lock you out at 3am would be considered “getting late”….). “Our Place” was pumping when we got there, it seems to get better and better everytime I go. They were blasting old school classics like “Mambo No. 5” and “S-Club” *wipes away tear of joy*
It’s good to know there are clubs with good music 😀
I can’t wait for Randers to come home and for Chimmercharlie to visit, we’re going to have a blast visiting these places- means I have to get to know the Valley really well by January… a challenge I gladly accept :3
Sooooo yeah. After “Our Place” the girls decided their feet hurt too much to go on and so we started the arduous task of tracking down a taxi at nearly 2am.
We tried calling, we tried hailing, we tried walking further down the road… all to no avail.
So what did these nowhere-near-sober girls decide to do next? Oh, well, you know, hitch hike.
Not even kidding. There was 4 of us and the drunker two were ahead of me waving at taxis and I was chatting to the girl with me when we heard them hollering for us to hurry up because we had a ride and so I ran… only to discover the shadiest looking black car with 2 guys in the front. No-one seemed to have a problem cramming into this car and short of being left by myself in the Valley… I had to get in. My heart was racing the entire way home. The girls were shrieking and laughing and being fun, which did lighten the tension in my body by a smidge, but not enough to make me forget that most of them were drunk and in a stranger’s car at 2 in the morning. If they had tried anything I doubt we would have been able to do much. I mean, 4 against 2 seems like alright odds… but with them drunk? Nah. Nope. We were easy targets.
THANKFULLY they weren’t serial killers/rapists.
Sure, they took the wrong turn twice and I was CONVINCED they were going to take us to some remote field and kill us all… but then they corrected their mistakes and we wound up a few houses down from the birthday girl’s house. Thank god I wasn’t the only one sober (well, she wasn’t SOBER, but she was nearly there), the birthday girl nearly directed them STRAIGHT TO HER DOOR, but this other girl stepped in and said oh no it’s a few more down.
So yeah. That was eventful.
Once we were inside we peeled off our clothes and pulled out the cold left over pizzas and pigged out. I really got along with these girls! Sure, I wasn’t my Singapore-self with them, I was still a bit too nervous to really talk much, but for the most part we all got on like a house on fire. They kept telling me how much they liked me, which is good right? 😀
If I said anything, it would be the right thing to say according to them, so I’m glad I’m finally fitting in with some girls here…
So yeah! We all crashed out after that. BUT HERE IS WHERE IT GETS FRUSTRATING!
PEOPLE HERE GO CLUBBING AND GET HAMMERED AND THEN WAKE UP BEFORE 10AM THE NEXT DAY! In fact, most of them are awake by 9!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY?? You’re supposed to sleep in until noon! Not be up with the crack of dawn!! Every single time I’ve slept over- with the exception of the boys- the host has been up before 9am. I wanted to cry when I became semi-conscious of the girls chatting at 8:35…
I didn’t have work this morning so I didn’t have to worry about that, thankfully. I did wake up with a friend though- the birthday girl has a lot of pets and I woke up to a ginger kitty curling up behind my knees:
Instead the girls invited me to come out to morning tea with them. It felt so surreal, standing in that coffee shop with 6 other girls (2 of them had gone back before we did- caused a lot of drama, I really can’t be bothered to go into it…), I felt like a teenager off a movie. It was that sense of things being too cliche to function, you know? We were all there, sunglasses, buying coffees (well, chocolate thickshake in my case) and waiting in the cafe gossiping about the night before. I felt as much a part of it as I felt like an outsider. These girls had accepted me for the night, but then were talking about people I didn’t know… I just took it for what it was and smiled along with them.
After we’d half finished our drinks we decided to split. Seeing as I was only 2 seconds away from the market I usually work at, I decided to head over and get my regular Sunday Crepes for breakfast, so I said goodbye and headed off.
I bought a cupcake for later and my crepes. The guy knows me personally now. He knows my name, knows my order and we’ve progressed to talking about our lives with each other. He’s such a lovely guy! I finally got the guts up to admit my embarrassment over not knowing his name- so now I know his name too. I STILL CAN’T PUT MY FINGER ON WHO HE REMINDS ME OF!! I swear he looks just like a BBC actor, but I can’t figure out who!
Maybe I’ll take a sneaky pic with him next weekend and see if anyone can recognise him for me 😛
While I was at the market I decided to do some recon- I wasn’t working this morning because my employer was bringing in her brother to help run the stall and she was showing him the ropes. If I had been there it would have been over-kill, 4 people manning a stall that only really needs 2? So yeah, I walked through the hall I work in and sped past the table.
I’m looking forwards to Sunday. He looked pretty cute to me! He’s probably going to be too old for me, but from the sneaky glimpse I got on Sunday he ain’t too shabby- naturally though my mum disagrees. She’d had the same idea as me, but she’d been to the markets earlier so I wasn’t with her.
Mum offered to pick me up from the markets so I waited by one of the buskers. She was amazing. I just stood there smiling at her stupidly and when I had to go I pretty much tipped my wallet upside down into her guitar box. Well, not really, but I did give her money (and desperately wanted to give her more… but I’m too poor :P).
When mum picked me up it was like everything from the past 2 days had disappeared, the air was clear again. Yay! We didn’t head home straight away though, my sister is having friends over tonight and she wanted to make Jell-O shots and so we swung by the local BWS and bought her some vodka, I begged mum to buy the Raspberry one but she didn’t .
When we eventually made it home I met one of my sister’s new friends and she’s absolutely lovely, very funny. We got on well. So well that Mei let me stay and hang out with them, which was sweet of her. Mum left pretty soon after that to meet up with one of her friends… so I took that as my que to walk back to the BWS and buy Mei some shot glasses and myself a bottle of Raspberry Vodka :3
So pleased with myself, hurhurhur.
Anyway, after getting back the three of us watched “Tangled” and I cried (ughhhhh, I can’t help it!! In “I See the Lights” you literally watCH HIM FALL IN LOVE WITH HER AND I CAN’T HALP THE FEELS!… *cough* sorry, I’m fine. Really. I’m just really, REALLY passionate about Disney :3).
Then my sister FINALLY convinced me to go and see the neighbour’s kittens. They just had a litter 2 monts ago and they are the CUTEST THINGS IMAGINABLE! There were 6 of them, but one’s been given away already. Yes, you heard correctly. They are GIVING THEM AWAY FOR FREE! My sister knew the second I saw them I’d be a gonner. So there you go. I want a kitten.
So we both started texting mum about them, we wanted one, wanted one, wanted one… but she said no. We ignored her and started looking up “Badass Metal names” for the kitten. Teehee.
We want to name the kitten Slasher or Doom or Lucifer, or- my personal favourite- Crowley :3
(Yes, after Supernatural, can you blame me? He’s so sassy and fabulous!)
After that another of Mei’s friends showed up and the 4 of us had dinner together and watched X-Factor (Dami, you rock gal). Now I’m writing this but we’re about to crack open my Vodka (well that’s a lie, I had a double shot with sprite with dinner- I’m about to get my second one when I finish this post) and start the drinking games!
First up: “Mean Girls” game. I’m looking forwards to it, I haven’t seen that movie in AGES and I’ve really wanted to recently. SO yeah! I’m going to go and be a cool kid and drink with my sister and her friends how :3
