The Masquerade Party Exclusive Review
The Holiday Lodge Masquerade Party hosted for all soon-to-be graduating Upper Sixth students in Brunei two nights ago was overall an okay event for me. To be honest, I wasn't quite impressed.
The first thing that came to my mind when I heard about the Party is of course the masks. And masks we wore on that night. But masks didn't make up the party. In fact, it was almost useless.
As far as I know (I went home 30 minutes earlier), there were no awards like Best Dressed or Prom King and Prom Queen, given. Also, everyone seemed to recognize everyone without much difficulty. I even impressed REnzo for being able to recognize him at a glance (who wouldn't? =p).As a prom night event, dancing was the highlight. However, it wasn't what I expected. As I entered the banquet hall, fully expecting it to be somewhat classy, I was totally wrong. The place was quite dim and electronic music were being put to full blast by the DJs, instead of what I thought to be peaceful scenery with classical music in the background. All the songs were shuffle-able, and non were waltz-able.
The place was too small to fit everyone. There were lotta people standing up for the whole night. Luckily I found myself a not so comfortable seat. Directly behind me was a huge mind-BLASTing speaker. I am officially part deaf after the party.
On a positive note, the organizers were wise enough to invite DJ Izan from Pilihan FM to host the party!
Yup, that's her alright ;)Also, there were 3 local bands performing; A Band Once, 4th of August and 4 Seconds. Don't ask me why the last 2 bands got the number 4 in their name. Maybe it's a sign that the world is gonna end in 2012 (4 means die in Chinese. So seeing two 4s in one night means double kill). Anyone here know that Jimbo's brother is the guitarist of the band 4th of August? Cool.
Have you ever seen a 6 and a half feet tall level 99 giant stomped the yard? Correction, a giant stomping the yard while having both hands on the shoulder of another guy. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to Mr. Davis Yap, a man who has been tagging DENcorp as "bigfoot".
Yea, he made everyone's day I tell ya ;)
So anyway, I hereby announce my absence as DENcorp blogger for 3 weeks, beginning tonight up to the 26th of December. I will be flying off to Malaysia to visit my families over there. That said, I hope Edison will relieve my post during my absence =p
Finally, have a happy holiday everyone!
