Eating, speaking with handsome guys, and party

It was our inter-alumni party night and it was an eye opening event. Around 50 seniors came from around the country and some from overseas to share their professional experiences with us. I was a little bit timid and stayed in my corner, nonetheless I managed to speak with some nice people, including those handsome guys. :-) The organizer prepared a slide show about us in the class and how we behave during discussion, presentation... The party ended...where do you think? It has to be a nightclub with alcohol and smoke and dance.

In the dancing floor, I look at those people, crazily drinking, smoking and dancing, and couldn't associate them with their professional life. I remember one of my managers in US was so drunk at one company function that he become the laughing target for several weeks. And here I was looking at the bright and energetic talents, and wondering why everyone in this country just need to end up in a place doing this kind of stuff. Is there no better thing to do in life than drinking and smoking? I'm not judging anyone, but I have tried to put myself in their shoes and just couldn't see why a party has to be associated with alcohol.

Another remark, if this party was held in Malaysia, most of the budget will be spent on food. In this party, cost covered hard liquor like whiskey and vodka. It won't surprise you if I tell you that I was hungry and went for a kebab at the end right?

    I think everyone will be hungry after clubbing .. :) I do that too. Like straight after all that hoo haa in the dance club, we hit the stalls! Dim sum perhaps ...

    wah so happy seeing your photos..hehehe..

  3. I feel the same way, Bee Ean. Can't understand the lifestyle of partying by drinking, talking crap when intoxicated and then waking up the next morning with a hangover and not remembering much of what happened. Just weird.

    Luckily for me, my husband did that in his bachelor days and didn't like. He still drinks but knows his limit. :)

  4. Every one there is young, Bee Ean, and most young people do that. Hopefully once they start working, they won't do as much.
