I actually got this voucher (in a last night a party hosted by TSB at Bangsar, one of the outlets owned by Gastrodome (also own La Bodega, ring a bell?) Anyway I realize that I am way too old for crowded parties. But then again, half the people at the 'upstairs' party area were way older than me… so it's probably not age alone but more of a 'refining' and 'mellowing' of the senses. Besides, it was loud, hot, stuffy and people were just jostling for a bit of air. I can smell every body scent and feel everyone's damp skin as we squeeze past each other. This violates my personal space and I'm not sure if that's my idea of fun. Free booze and finger food galore does not appeal to me, unfortunately. But the party was a success from the overwhelming response, so kudos to Gastrodome.
So I now admit and confess that I am no longer a party animal. Sigh I think my idea of a party is a quiet dinner in a nice place with good friends and delectable eatables. Heck, at that moment I could actually think of a thousand things that I would rather be doing instead of partying …. Some of these would be ….
- Watching DVDs in the comfort of my own home
- Doing laundry
- Reading and re-reading books
- Washing car
- Playing taboo at Champs
Don't get me wrong, I do like partying, but I'm really fussy when it comes to the crowd and music and 'space'. One of the best and most memorable parties I been too was the Salem Recharge (open-air of course) at Genting around 4 to 5 years back. That was what I call a real party. Cool air, plenty of space, great music and we had a nice sized group.
