Its good to have great friends!

I would like so say a big thank you to all those who wished me happy birthday, for all the gifts, cakes and parties. Evidently enough, I'm a huge fan of parties. Traditionally i would throw 2 parties for me birthday. The 1st one would be a mega clubbing session (normally combined with Andrew) and the 2nd one would be a chill out session at my house.

This year I wasnt really in the mood to party since I had so many things on my mind. However, I must say that I am extremely lucky to have the wealth of friends.

Since 29 June till last weekend, friends have celebrated my birthday by way of dinners, lunches, booze ups, etc, etc... I think i had a total of 4 cakes this year, my favourite being the one Joanne and Bree got me. Not many gifts as people enjoy giving me food treats and alcohol... Not like i'm complaining la.

However, on the 9th of July, I couldnt resist the temptation of having a party. *chuckles*. Since it was gonna be at Somo on my birthday itself, i might as well make a few invitations instead of my regular kakis. So I invited about 20 people... out of which, 10 didnt make it due to super last minute invite as i only sent out the sms like a day or 2 before the 9th. Irrespective, i had about 45 guests! surprise surprise...

Obviously i had to have the party at Somo right. I mean, its like my favourite hang out now, so there's no reason why i shouldnt have my little celebration there.

A big thank you to Andrew and Ken the co-owners of Somo for their warm hospitality, service and drinks. I think from now forth, whenever i wanna have a nice simple function, i'll have it at Somo. It truly makes sense! In fact, Ken was nice enough to provide us with some free booze and chocolates, etc.

Here's a picture of Ken and Andrew with Joanne and Bree during more sober times.

Anyhow, i just wanna say that i had a great birthday celebration and would love to share some of the many cam whoring pictures for all.

I thought having a party on a Monday would deter many from coming... but what do you know... it was another succesful party...

I have no regrets of having my birthday party on a Monday and at Somo.... I think everyone had fun, considering the fact that we started at about 7pm and ended at 4am....

Thanks Joanne and Bree for the lovely cake.....

Here's the Tokyo Rush that Ken made for me, courtesy of the good ol' broadwalk guys... i believe it was Victor who bought me my first one...

Tokyo Rush is a Ken creation made up of 4 different types of potent alcohol. I was suppose to bottoms it all up. Well obviously its me... I finished it and enjoyed a couple more!!

My favourite 2 meals @ Somo... the Yakatori and Sake Ikura Don

They seriously thought graveyards and more yakatoris were gonna take me down... How foolish!

And the Cam whoring begins!

We even did some Salsa dancing.... woo hoo!

Ok ok ok... i know i'm such a camwhore.... i'll upload all the other pics and videos onto my photo blog soon k... just bear with me....

yoo hoo!!!! I'm back! I flew in last night from Kuching where I had 5 days of ogasmic fun! The food, the drinking, the dancing, the people, the music, the everything was so so so fantastic. Joe, it is the RAINFOREST WORLD MUSIC FESTIVAL (RWMF), not the Raintree festival (as per your earlier post.)

I can't wait to blog on my experiences in RWMF. I have so many topics, that i dont know where to start. Anyhow, all that has to wait as i need to prepare for my trip to JB for work.

However, the moment i find the time, i will and must blog about the numerous fun sessions i've had in the past 2 weeks!

Boogie Wonderland

Last Saturday, we had one of em boys nite out. It was originally meant to celebrate both Andrew's and my birthday. However, this year we didnt feel like having a party like we normally do, so we just wanted a few guys out for some drinks. We didnt plan anything, just wanted to keep it impromptu.

Anyhow, it was just the 4 of us, Andrew, Soon Hoe, Chris and myself. We were having dinner at some kopitiam in Cheras wondering where to go and came up with a few suggestions. The funniest suggestion was going to Neway Cheras for karaoke. The thought of it was damn GAY man. Four 29 year old boys going to a karaoke just to SING SONGS! WTF? As much as i enjoy karaokes, i'm not going to go karaoke with boys. Furthermore to celebrate my birthday? No way are they gonna Gay up my birthday man!

But the funny incident that ensued was during a moment of silence in the car, Soon Hoe started singing some Karaoke tunes. So what did we do? we started karaoke-ing in the CAR of course. No way are we gonna karaoke at NEWAY. not 4 dudes!

We finally decided to go over to Samantha's for some pool. We thought having some happy hour beers would be a good way to start the night. We chose the place coz we know the owners and also their sister pub '80s Dream' (located just above Samantha's) does have a single karaoke set that we have been known to conquer during one of our many drunken stupor nites. So we did plan to Gay up our nite after all!

After having some drinks and pool, we finally said lets head down to a club and check out some chicks. So i suggested this new club called Sunshine on heritage row. I've been there once, but only briefly. Was there the 2 Fridays ago to meet up with Kheng Lin from Penang. She was down for the weekend and I so badly wanted to see her, even if it was just for a bit. Anyhow, what led me to suggest Sunshine was the fact that they played retro music.

FINALLY a club that plays RETRO music on weekends! WOO HOO! It was so boogie wonderland man!

The place is pretty nice. Well air-conditioned. The crowd a bit odd though. But the music and prices was worth the trip down to town. There's something magical about retro music. I don't know what it is, but whenever i hear it, i get happy feet.

Most of you would know that i'm not a big fan of clubbing yet people call me to go clubbing virtually every weekend (and weekdays). Furthermore, i'm not the dancing type. Unless its salsa of course! I only go clubbing if its with my crazy clubbing mates. The problem is, i have way too many crazy clubbing mates!

Anyhow, the point i'm trying to get at is, whenever retro music plays, i'll start to DANCE. It was so weird man coz way before the drinks arrived, i was already dancing. It was a pretty gay sight if you were to think of it la, but i dont care man. Retro music rawks!

I still find mambo's original DJ to play the best selection of retro and the DJs at MOS' studio 54 never disappoints! But this DJ, though not too experienced, played a decent mix.

I think i'll go to Sunshine every now and then. Infact, am thinking of heading down there this weekend!

Me and 80s music and Sunshine is just like that Jackson 5 hit'

Don't blame it on sunshine,
Don't blame it on moonlight,
Don't blame it on good times,
Blame it on the boogie!
