Taste Asia 2: I Went for the Free Booze

I never really go to offline blogger events or “parties”, save for TMB celebraganzas, for the sole reason that I’m antisocial (what? Lololol). So anyway, having nothing better to do on a Thursday night (I lie: I actually filed a leave for that night for this “party”), I, with the awesome TMB monkeys + my “date” made my way to Taste Asia 2. Honestly, I had no clue what the event was all about; I just wanted to, like, be there.

The majority of the night was spent not socializing and just downing bottle after bottle of booze at The TMB Table. And several trips to the washroom which was three meters behind our table. WHAT A FANTASTIC PARTEEEEH, HUH? Too bad I was too lazy to go around and look for people I know/wanted to meet IRL (read: just one: Shari).

I did see Benj which was awesomecakes as I haven’t seen the guy since 2001, and I finally got to meet the sexy nomad Jen Mordo. I missed Liz, though, boo. Highlight of the evening was seeing Bim and Mikey fighting over Penny.

Mikey: Kunyari Bim and I are the last two guys on earth.
Bim: Tapos may goat.

Penny chooses Bim, huzzah!

Bim and Steel are gangstahs.

Me, looking like a moron. Chubby AZN cheeks explosion!

Photos swiped from Ade.

All in all, and like any night spent with the TMB kids, I had loads of fun. And now I seriously need to de-tox; no drinking until September.

    More incriminating pics for upload later. Wahehihohu. We should have free-booze parties like this every other week or as often. As if I drink. But I like taking the photos.

    Wait. What happened to the goat?!

    • Reply Helga August 25, 2007 at 12:19 pm

      They were both losing to it, so they took it out of the running.

  • Reply alohapenny August 25, 2007 at 7:02 am

    I’d choose the goat but they removed it from the options!! Nice meeting you Helga and your cheeks are cute! I enjoyed the night with you guys.

    • Reply Helga August 25, 2007 at 12:22 pm

      My cheeks were too pink! Even on the elevator ride from the carpark, lover was telling me I went overboard with the blush.

    yes the goat! Penny should have chosen the goat, no offense to Bim, er..and mike for that matter hehe. At least with the goat she’d feel better about herself in the morning. =p

    Wait, Im not THAT fat in real life am I? You choose the most unflattering pics. You suck.

    • Reply alohapenny August 25, 2007 at 11:03 am

      the camera adds ten pounds Mikey, you should have chosen a dark shirt, notice how Bim appears to be just a head with hands therefore not fat :)

        …but but but I’m not fat!

    • Reply Helga August 25, 2007 at 12:13 pm

    I wanted to be there, but I was too busy… (Read: I forgot.) Oh well. I have to meet you the next time this happens. I’ll be there for the free food, and maybe grab myself a bottle of vodka since I don’t drink beer. lol

Doc Tess, Eric, and LA completed the “intimate” circle. I didn’t see Helga, who surprisingly wanted to meet me (I would’ve challenged her to a “who has the bigger beer belly now, bitch?” match). It was Joe’s first blogger event, huzzah! […]
