"Our" Night out

Both Lydia and I had our "night out" last Friday at this place in the middle of town called "Passion" with our best, best church friends.

Before I go further, I just want to thank everyone who showed up for taking the time and effort to make it. I know we had to sit through a long and irritating jam all the way to Jalan P.Ramlee, but it was worth it.

So, back to the story. We were supposed to meet there at 9:00 p.m., then later 9:30 p.m., but by the time most of us arrived, it was 10:00 p.m. Randy called me at about 9:30 p.m. asking me where everyone was - he was the first and most punctual guy waiting in front of the place like a... (insert own expressive). That's a good thing, Randy Khoo!

Anyway, to cut the long story short - pictures paint a thousand words so here's one of the crowd who were there (spot any familiar faces):

The guys pinned me down and made me tell old girlfriend stories, and dared me to get some girl in the bar to dance. Okay, so I admit, this was my first time approaching two Malay girls to get on the dance floor with me. The worst part - I totally don't know how to dance.

I guess everyone gets this once in their lifestime, so after some 30 minutes of meandering, I actually got off my bottom and asked. And one of them accepted. I don't have any pictures of that dance, but someone has, I'm sure (can someone send it to me?).

Anyway, other highlights of the night was:

5. Yuke Bin demonstrating that the lame can dance! Despite his heavily bandaged leg, our friend was nicely snaking his way across the dancefloor.

4. Kee Leong, hands up high and shaking and waving like tomorrow is never gonna come.

3. Yvonne! Never knew you were so strong. It took four women to hold you down.

2. Co-ed bathrooms. There's a freaky feeling when you see girls preening outside and taking photos of themselves just before you get into the cubicle to peel.

1. Everyone attended! This was a very meaningful night, not just coz we're gonna get married, but because you all came.

I have a more images loaded up on my Flickr photostream. Click on them to the right if you wanna browse through.

we got the message at 8pm that we were invited to PASSION at 10pm. out of respect to the organisers and the guests of honor, we took off at 9.15pm, reaching there at about 9.45pm.
called up people, everyone was passing the buck. just leaving church, "on the way", you know the drill.
cut the StarWars saga short, it seems PASSION only opens at 11pm..
so tell me, Mr. Lian..
according to you:
"We were supposed to meet there at 9:00 p.m., but by the time most of us arrived, it was 10:00 p.m. Randy called me at about 9:30 p.m."
does he (or we) deserve:
"waiting in front of the place like a... (insert own expletive). That's a good thing, Randy Khoo!"
the way i see it, if everyone (including you) were punctual for your wedding, i'd be surprised..

Indeed, we were all late. Which is why it was a good thing that Randy Khoo arrived early and punctual!

point taken.
but ask anyone who reads it without the 'mind of David Lian' and see if what is written is what i interpreted it to be.
and the phrase:
"apparently he was the first and most punctual guy waiting in front of the place like a... (insert own expletive)."
is really uncalled for...
before we close this chapter to enjoy the festivities of your impending matrimony, i'd like to say that waiting for an hour for a last minute invitation is gross disrespect for any person worth his salt..
