Dinner and Dance

Last Saturday, I attended the Malaysian and Singaporean Society's annual Dinner and Dance at the Holiday Inn.

I wore this red dress I got from an eBay seller, my favourite pair of silver sparkly heels and ekiLove's earrings. I kept my jewellery to a minimum because my dress already had a fairly large floral corsage, so I didn't want to look overwhelmed. I also curled my hair so wearing a necklace around my neck would have looked a bit too much, I think.

I had such an amazing time with my friends! Our table was the loudest, as usual. That's the thing about my friends and I; we aren't afraid of acting silly and we'd laugh the hardest at the slightest joke. Even when we're all decked out smartly in our suits and looking pretty in our frocks, we would still be ourselves and just have fun.

Fancy, sit-down dinners like these can be quite a bore so it's entirely up to us to make it a memorable night, in my opinion. Oh, and I took tons of photos that night. I always tell myself that I'm only young once, so I had better capture all these moments on camera because when I'm old and senile, hopefully these pictures will jolt back some memories :)









P/S: Everybody say hi to the boyfriend? :)

  2. How exciting to get all-dressed up :) You and your friends all look so dapper! One of the things I miss from college are formal events. There just aren't many other opportunities to get all dolled up. I sometimes dress up for dinner at nice restaurants with John, but even then we tend to be overdressed compared to other diners.

    You're right that fancy dinners can be stuffy, though. I'm glad that you and your friends were still able to make it fun :) I hope you're having a good week!

  16. Joey, I love this!! I love that dress, it's so distinctive! And sparkly heels are YES.

    Next time, take me to your parties. LOL.

    PS. As a fellow Southeast Asian... how do you feel about Arissa Cheo? I think I'm in love with her lately... I can't help it.

    IRYC: (in response to your comment at my site):
    DUDE, I totally ALWAYS flash the peace signs. I think it's me trying to be "more Asian". AHAHAHA! Every photo, practically!

    I use the Lumix (leica) DMC-LX5. The LX3 has silver trim. The LX5 is the newest model right now, and it's getting more and more affordable by the month! I got mine on Amazon, and it takes amazing photos. Less good on faces, though. (The facial recognition for auto focus on faces is not as good technology as I would have hoped! But it's still arguably a better camera than the Canon G12--so they say.)
