The Famous Amos Tragedy

My ball was the night before.

And I lost a pack of Famous Amos. :(

And warning, this post has so many pictures I can't keep count. :P


It was actually the Monash University Malaysian Student Union (MUMSU) ball, and it cost me a whopping AUD69.

It was held in Sophitel hotel in the city, in which Lionel and Jaclyn kindly gave us a ride. :)

Speaking of Sophitel, doesn't it sound like a cheap motel??? After the Cornel Hotel inident, I have developed a phobia of Aussie hotels.

But everyone said that it is a really, really, really nice hotel...

Behold, Sophitel...

The entrance to our 'ballroom'.

Our ballroom was actually called the Terrace room, which is a large open-aired space (within the hotel-lah), in the second floor, with a balconey overlooking the hotel's lobby. Nice. :)

The Incredible Jac who did up her own hair all by herself!! *in awe*

Speaking of hair, I was so depressed that I had to settle for a measly half-ponytail. :( I wanted to curl my hair, but it will cost AUD50. However vain I am, it IS a little crazy to fork out so much money for a hairdo that will only last one night. This is the fate that you suffer when you have thick hair. *holds fire torch near hair*

But at least I had a pretty white flower in my hair, loaned by Jaclyn. *muah*

Oh my goodness, this guys are so talented!! I have never been a big fan of breakdancing, but they can really make you gasp in amazement!!

It didn't hurt that they were quite cute, hee. ;)

Oh, and we had salmon as our main course!! But it was cooked in such a healthy way though, steamed, with vegetables heaped on it.

A girl needs her cream sauce k.

Halfway through the function, the emcees started a 'game', whereby they will draw out table numbers, and the table that gets chosen must send a representative to sing a song on stage (A song list is provided, and lyrics are shown on the TV screen ala karaoke style).

Some tables that got picked were really unsporting, whereby everyone just refused to go upstage.

Our table decided to show them how it is done.

Haha, I went to the Vice President of the society, and told him that our table wants to perform.

And, presenting to you, table 17....

We all went up, and did YMCA!!! :P

Y...M...C, A!!! I think we were at "A" here. :P

Super liberating k!! We could see alot of tables doing the "Y, M, C, A" hand motions along with us!! ;)

And tiramisu for dessert :)

Tiramisu with Cafe Machiatto ice cream.

Hehe, pardon my excitement, I seldom get desserts in Aussie. :(

And we got pretty and yummy cookies for coffee and tea! :)

Running on a sugar high, I was fueled up for picture-taking! ;)

I messed up the boys...

(Sorry la, my sexy pose damn fail, and apparently Lenz thinks garang is the new sexy. -_-)

Messed-up boy 3: JJ vs Who has the longest tongue pose.
(JJ, you win. :P)

Messed-up boy 4: Woo Hsian vs Miang Betul pose.
Woo Hsian is of the first few names that I remember in Melbourne, 'cause he bet me that I couldn't.
Now it looks like I can't forget this expression on his face, ever. o_O

Oh, and there were quite a bundle of vouchers and discount coupons as part of our goodie bag. And the favourite being a teeny weeny packet of Famous Amos cookies!!!


Everyone polished off their packets before the main meal has arrived, but not me. Me, who lovingly pats my cookie packet in the goodie bag, with the notion that I'll savor my cookies s-l-o-w-l-y back in my room.

While chatting to Smalls, I found out that we both love the No Nut Chocolate Chip cookies of Famous Amos!!! Do you know I havn't never found someone who loves the same type of Famous Amos cookies as I do???!!!! Most girls seem to like butterscotch or macademia. *sticks out tongue*

Being Famous Amos buddies, we decided to take a No Nut picture.

No Nut, means cannot smile/laugh, must be damn stern and fierce, geddit?

Fine, it was my lame idea.*sheepish*

Take 1: FAIL. 'Cause *someone* can't contain her nuttiness.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Take 2: SUCCESS! Woo, my cookie buddy here looked so hot!!! Smothering! ;)

Then hor, that Kit Mey damn bising, want to join in also, but I told her, cannot, it's strictly No Nut fans only. But she being an Arnott fan, and me being a TimTam lover ('cause like Arnott is Tim Tam's manufacturer, duh), we became Arnott buddies!!! ;)

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
We aren't odd (Arnott), we just love Arnott!!

Wahahahhahaahhahahha. My lameness has a reached another level.

More pictures....

Rion (Ryon?) who had long hair before this! ;)

Oh oh oh, and we had lucky draws throughout the night!!! The guys at our table, who have been to MUMSU's ball for three consecutive years, told us that they have never won anything before... -_-

But then, the wheel of luck took a spin when Kit Mey won a 10 dollar food voucher.

During the 2nd round of lucky draw, Randy won a printer!!! :)

Don't ever separate us...

But Lady Luck really threw a luck grenade at our table when Jaclyn won the grand prize of night-- the newest 2G Ipod Nano!!!

Why I never get luck like this one. :(

Dear Jac, since you already have an Ipod, why not give it to your poor sweet and nice friend?? *hopeful smile*
No need to give to Lionel la, he wears dragon ties...

Hehe. :P

The woman made of luck, and the man who wants her prize as his own. ;)

(Oh, she got a certification letter of some sort for the meantime, and will receive the actual Ipod later! :P)

Ooooh, and our table got even luckier!! Kit Mey got nominated as Queen!! :)

Sorry Mey, I couldn't capture a good picture. :(

But in the end, some lame unsporting chick won instead. Boo. =(

But Kit Mey, you were the bomb among all the other contenders k! :)

Narcissm twofold.

And it was in the bathroom that I left my goodie bag. :(
A bagful of useful food vouchers, a coupon for a free pair of earrings, my ticket, ALL GONE.
And the worst thing was, MY BAG OF FAMOUS AMOS COOKIES!! :( :( :(
The one that I saved so carefully.
Along with a 40% off discount coupon for Famous Amos cookies.

I am so scarred. :(

Outside PI (heh, I don't know how to show the mathematical symbol in blogs ler :P), the club where the afterparty was...

Girls just wanna have fun!!! :D

The dancing was just so great!! Alot of people that we knew, and the music was good. I danced till my legs hurt like hell.

And Jaclyn and Smalls got drunk on 151 (Bacardi 151), which apparently has 80% alcohol!!!
Wtf, damn lethal.
All of us took turns throughout the night to take care of them
And Jaclyn becomes damn manja when she's drunk. ;)
And Smalls is just so super entertaining. Oh, and she has lesbo tendencies too. o_O

Nopes, I will not post those pics up. :P

We only left the club at about 4 something, to grab some way, way way overpriced mamak food.

And we only reached home about 6 plus.
If my dad could see me then. o_O

But staying out the whole night killed my immune system.I am so freaking sick now.
Bad flu, fever, and a case of the bright yellow phlegm. :(

And there are actually SO SO SO SO many more pictures, but I shall refrain from posting just in case broadband explodes on you. ;)

Fine lah, I admit, I didn't post, 'cause I didn't look good enough. ;)

Thank you, everyone, who had a part in making the night filled with fun. :)

PS: And I would be even more grateful if ANYONE could offer me their Famous Amos cookies!! Or the discount voucher!!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, with sprinkles on top? :)
