All sorts of catching up to do

Monday, May 18, 2009

I realize it's six in the morning but seeing as my arms don't hurt anymore (muscle relaxants finally kicked in, woohoo!) and for some peculiar reason I'm WIDE awake... I thought it'd be a shameful waste to not blog the past two weeks of debauchery for the world to see.

Okay. Fine. I'm lying. I'm actually being mercilessly hounded for the pictures from the Google Maps Malaysia launch last week... and then some.

Nothing like motivation than the evil eye en masse.

As for why my arms make it feel like I'm listening to a banshee shriek every time I try to straighten them... here's a pro tip: don't invert for a full hour if you haven't actually been seriously pole-ing for two months or so. You will hate yourself bitterly come the next morning all the way through the next few days.

Laborious


We worked really, really hard during the weekend of Labor's Day. No rest for the wicked!

Thursday night--

Lola is not drunk--yet, hehe.

Credits to Lola and her cam for the pictures.

I obviously don't remember what happened on Friday seeing as I probably slept through. But anyhow...

Playing dress up


Saturday morning--

Vee came back home to check on her bridesmaids--only to find out they've yet to get their dresses (I'm so sorry lol)! She cracked the whip and soon Chris, Mei (another blushing bride-to-be) and I found our way to Vee's seamstress.

The brides discus about how demure cream looks better than sickly, cheap white. Vee looking absolutely serious.

After much fuss and gushing, Chris and I finally decided on our dresses (with Vee's blessing) and we should be in for fittings sometime mid June. So begins the losing war of a month long diet to look nothing less than spectacular in our bridesmaids dresses come July/August.

Happy Birthday Mei!


Saturday night--

Dinner was supposed to be at a Thai place called "My Elephant." Between Chris and Cina, the name of the restaurant got lost in translation some time during the morning and we all thought we were going to eat at "My Pink Elephant" at the Mansion of Happiness.

There were so many things that went wrong in my imagination.

Drinks and dessert at Leonardo's:

Malaysian Dance Carnival 2009


Sunday--

On that same weekend, the Malaysian Dance Carnival 2009 as hosted at MidValley. Naturally, Viva Vertical had a short demo and KL Swing! had their first public performance!

Watch the pole performance here on YouTube.

I believe there was one picture of the KL Swing! team that is unfortunately on some unknown camera that has yet to show up on Facebook. Mama Ming has banned any of the videos from going up (our shim sham was that uncoordinated, yes it was lol). In defense of the boys and girls, it was our first time and dancing on carpet did not help matters the least bit.

Google Maps Malaysia launch


Let's just say, the launch epitomized Murphy's law of perversion where anything that can go wrong, will bloody indeed go wrong. There was no internet connectivity throughout the event, so much of the demos were seen with our imaginations. Hopefully, none of us were too far off.

I also have to point out that it's such a small world as I bumped into Ivan:

Assaulting Ivan
... whom I assaulted right off the bat <3 Pardon the shakiness, there was no standing still for this one.

The boys: Arzumy, guy I didn't manage to get name (apologies!), Ditesh, Colin and Yoon Kit.

I like how Andrew is casually not posing for the camera :)

If you were expecting Cliff notes of the launch... tough! :p The full video is with Surianee (I think, or Aizat). Feel free to hound them for it :D

And of course, no Google event would be complete without a glorifying tee:

I am here. The Google tee.
