needless to say, prom was the least bit disappointing.
firstly, i am extremely thankful that fate prevented me from buying the lovely black and white puffy dress from daniel yam, because i saw one girl with the exact same dress, and even more people wearing black and white dresses.
anw i still had to work half day in the morning, before i rushed off for my hair appointment at hollywood secrets with cassy. hollywood secrets was filled with so many AC people that it was a miracle we managed to get out of there in 40 minutes.
the hairdresser was being super anal by telling me that it was impossible to pin all my hair up. but i insisted that she did so anyway. and before she did, she asked me whether it was okay if i didnt want to hide my ears. wth just cos my ears are sticky-out doesnt mean they have to be hidden right. and in the end she managed to pin 99.9% of my hair up.
later, i made an ardous journey to amara hotel, where mel had a free overnight stay. we had a twin room with 3 beds and extremely comfy sheets. so thanks mel!!
then we booked a hugeass cab that cost us 20 bucks of cab fare total (wtf) to get to shangrila. the taxi uncle curiously asked mat, ‘wah you all wear so nice. going married ah?’ lol wtf
red really does stand out in pictures.
with shaun. zomg i still cant believe he spent $99 on having his eye brows plucked and putting on makeup. and theres the additional cost of his suit and ring and what else. i only spent at most $50 on hair and makeup wth
anyway there was this lucky draw segment halfway through dinner. i think they gave out 10 prizes. the 9th prize was 10 free movie passes and the first number they drew didnt turn up. so when they said they were going to have a redraw, i was like YES! -for the mere sake of saying it of course. i had been more interested in my cracker chicken dish than the lucky draw. lol but then they called my number and i was like OMG.
i think it was supposed to be an individual prize but since there were 10 tickets i decided to be very nice and shared it with the rest of the table. now all they have to do for me is to turn up when shaun organises a movie outing.
while everyone dispersed to post prom, we headed back to our hotel room to sleep until 2.50 am, and then walked all the way to crab shack to watch the man utd vs fulham match. you wont believe how much persuading it took to get me (a non football watcher) out of the nice amara bed. but i managed to drag my lazy ass out and went to disturb melinda (big time man utd fan) until she woke up too haha.
the walk was pretty fun, with the help of the gps. its an awesome feeling to jaywalk across huge widths of road at 3am in the morning without a care in the world. then we ordered nice calamari at crab shack and sat down to watch the match with a bunch of other guys who cussed at everything and anything.
when the match ended at 6, we went back and slept till 12, before checking out.
and omg im too tired to blog anymore. stupid facebook takes ages to upload pictures i am going to give up soon. oh well, its back to work tml. ive been spending more than i am earning. this is badd..
