It was almost 6:30pm when al and I reached the lobby of the Grand Continental Hotel, looking all smart, cool and ready for the night ahead. Kheng leng’s gang greeted us right there and we went up after them to the 2nd floor where the Rafflesia Room is, and incidently is the venue of this year’s Prefects’ Night, oh yeah!
The Rafflesia Room slowly filled up as ladies and gentlemen in masquerades poured in, the ladies donned magnificent gowns and boys in formal wear. There was plenty of chitchat and joking around as we moved from table to table. But alas, only a deafening applause was heard when Mdm. Mary John arrived.
Andd.. The night starts. Well, I would recall Eddie giving his speech, ending it splendidly with a “Hasta la vista, baby!” followed by Seng Siang.
Yup, blur but yummy. The food was pretty good I must say, but sadly my appetite wasn’t that good that night, or else I would be going for second and third rounds.. Ah, pity. There was sotong in dried chilli, fish fillets, roasted chicken, mixed veggie and er..beef. Yum.
And oh boy, the confectionary! The cakes were splendid! Especially the chocolate ones, they look so yummy that I gobbled them up before I remembered to take pictures of them. I went back for a second helping but ouch, they ran out of chocolate cakes, bummer. So I took these two pandan flavoured pieces back to my table and snapped pics of them before swallowing them into the cave of doom. Double yum. XD The cakes, as it turned out, to be the best stuff that night, at least that was what I thought.
Well, the games hosted by Pn Dora was, well, OK. Didn’t reaally had much excitement in that. Although chasing Eddie and later, Pn Indira around the floor for their straws (part of the game which I would be lazy to ellaborate on) was pretty fun.
The best part of the night would be the dance. Me, Eddie, Kong Ming and Al went literally crazy as four of us danced together in sync. We had sooo much fun. Damn! What a great chance to let go all that stress of studying hours endlessly for the exams. Woohoo! Man, I wasn’t myself that night. Then Kong Ming got the idea of us forming a train, so four us ran around the hall in the train formation laughing our asses off and then everyone followed! The next second, everyone, I mean every-one was running around in the train formation led by us! Oh boy! The insanity!
When it was time for the I-would-die-if-I-dont-go-up-the-stage-singing dudes to er..sing, we sneaked out of the Room for some pictures together.
Me and kong ming.
Me, Eddie and Kong ming.
And when we all got bored of taking pictures, Eddie wandered over the the Ladies’ and started picking those specially installed locks they have. (Hey, why dont we have those over in the Gents’?) As if..lol.
Eddie caught red handed!
When the craze outside the ladies’ died down, Ing thian spotted Brintey Spears making her way into it and..
Ing thian playing the peeping tom
The ‘news’ leaked and we all came into the picture. Wuahaha!
*GAH! havent got time to finish this post, check back later dudes.
Edit: Damn. I swear I had already finish writing this post at a later date. Now the 2nd part seems to be gone. Grr. That sucks really. But i guess we’ll just have to live with it. The post ends here, unfortunately.
