New Updates on The Sticker Monster!
It says a lot now that for a simple outing involving a stay over and a night out on the dance floor had to be planned out so many months in advance!Â
For years, the girls, otherwise affectionately known as The Dahlings have wanted to go away somewhere together. What was supposed to be Mel’s hen’s night dwindled down to a night full of girly fun because she said it was too early for a hen’s night. So maybe round 2 in 2011! From overseas trips, we cut down the plan to local holidays to fit budget and schedules and to further fit schedules, we just thought, “Haiyah, have a sleep over at one of the hotels in KL only lah!”Â
I’m still looking forward to the day where we can truly go on a holiday, just us girls! Â
The day started off with some famous wan tan mee at a coffee shop in SS14 but I opted for pan mee instead. Pan mee is my latest craze! Have you heard of Jojo Pan Mee in SS15? It’s the best! I think there are other branches but I am not sure where.
Sush and her wantan mee kon lou.
With Min Dee whom I have not seen in eons! (but who I have seen quite a few times since as she is finally done with her course in Australia but will be heading to Hong Kong to work in a few months’ time)
Mun Teng enjoying her wan tan mee without bothering to strike a pose for me.
With a slightly opened mouth (damn fake lo) trying to pretend that this is a fun girl day out. I mean it was, but it was still the beginning and it wasn’t like I was in mid-squeal or something. Oh well, but it does paint a picture of fun!
Alright, I managed to get everyone to hold still.Â
back l-r: Min Dee, Esther, Mel, Sush
Front l-r: Mun Teng, MeÂ
Oh look!! Chee Wen and Jimmy on the AIMST billboard. The billboard is all over the North South highway as well!Â
We stayed at the Concorde and here I was, soaking up the christmas decoration and the sunlight while Mel checks in.
Gigantic beautiful christmas tree!Â
I think we found a mistletoe on the tree or something.
Couldn’t leave Min Dee out as well!
Esther welcomes you to the Dahlings Headquarter (our room).
Mel was freaked out by the amount of accessories I bought. Hey, I couldn’t decide, alright?
Mun Teng and I took to the bathroom to check out the bathtub.
And did a little more than that.
Later Mun Teng’s eyes grow pustule.Â
Min Dee comes out of the closet. Hehe.
We have a nice little spot in the huge bathroom where we congregated for a make-up session that night before heading out to Zouk, which was just a 10 minutes walk away!
Sush makes the best afternoon snacks.
We were trying to replicate the Langkawi Bed Photos! I’d put up a link but I’m too lazy to find the post. It was back in 2004 where we went to Langkawi for the last time.
Our supposedly wild and sexy poses. I was in the midst of swishing my hair.
At the end of a broadway musical pose.
At the end of a Las Vegas show pose.
The crumpled bed. Tim and Aud once came into Chee Kiang and my hotel room during the Nuffnang Vpost Christmas party thing, saw the crumpled sheets and giggled and whispered to each other, “They all also.” Where got, we all so innocent one okay!
Hahaha Josama Bin Laiden.
We then changed into something more comfortable before heading down to the pool! Oh! And Abby has arrived as well.
Only Mun Teng can muster that pout.
Such a pro.
Mun Teng’s perfect pink water bottle, Esther’s present to me – a tiny tampon canister and a long slender glass with I don’t know what kind of flowers.Â
Our token future tai tai at practice again.lÂ
A cute photo of Abby adjusting the cameras with the girls behindÂ stiflingÂ their yawns.
Nice pyramid shape!
All of us had sunnies to wear except for Liss who made do with her hands.
We all had the masquerade look going on while Mel has the batman face she remembers from her kindergarten days.
A kooky one.
Just one more – at least an organized one.Â
One last slutty one before we decided that enough was enough and went down to the pool.
All eight girls crammed into the elevator, saw a mirror and proved to be true camwhore professional.
Like we’re in a reality tv show or something.
Mel’s got the rising from the water pose down pat.
No obvious full frontal monokini shot of me coz quite shy and indecent. But not like you want also right! Haha. Later your eyes burn ah.Â
Thankfully it wasn’t that big a splash or not shy only.
Abby and Liss.
Getting some underwater hugs from Mun Teng.
Where there is a camera the girlsl will flock to it! Sort of like those carps application on phones which follow your finger pressure.
Mun Teng and I in a very very wrong angle.
Esther’s artistic shot of us girls and our heads. It was damn tiring as we were practically doing chin-ups while trying to lift ourselves out of the water.
One of her with our hotel.
This is what happens when you leave your camera with Esther.
Like I said.. carps. 😛
I had to have one too! I think I don’t have photos of myself these days. Mojo dying and all that.Â
The girls spelling out LOVE from the water.
And when you do alphabets with your hands, you’ll definitely do YMCA as well.
I know I look kind of bald in this picture.
Mun Teng’s aqua pancute.
While waiting for six other girls to get ready, Min Dee and I camwhored with our ‘light make up’. Dinner was simple, only KFC at KLCC.
HAHAHAHHA funniest picture. Min Dee and Sush are so professional until they can fit themselves into our camwhoring picture.
Mel and her fish lips.
Them working ladies.. girls’ night out also must use their blackberries.
Esther and I with our movie still moment. 🙂
This picture was to disgust Chien out. She’s all the way in Australia missing out on all this. Along with Amanda and She Dee who were also not in the country. 🙁
Damn salah photo. I hope nobody clicks “Save As” and looks at this picture from time to time.Â
Only Mun Teng is capable of the super cute and super kesian face.
Still trying to get in on the action but I was actually trying to snap Mel and Min Dee’s finger lickin’ good moment.
After dinner, it was time for a more elaborate make up session.
Sush and Mel looking gorgeous!
Oh and Min Dee too!
Esther and I making full use of my 120 colours palette.Â
Nothing more fun than having a good ol’ bonding session with your besties and sharing make up. (don’t scream, Chien, we didn’t share everything)
Mun Teng the life saver with her Baby Liss curler.Â
I have not dared take the plunge yet. This was when my hair was still damn long. I had it cut in late January and it feels SO light now! When it gets long again, then I’ll go get it curled.
Mel starts the in-house jiggy session.
Love love love this picture of Min Dee perfecting her bob!Â
A bimbo pose to set the mood. We brought our own bottles to get a little head start so as you can see, I was coated in nice tint of red already. Or was it my blush? Who knows.
Mel’s awesome red leopard print satin dress.
Min Dee and her sly smile..
Mel and her seductive smile..
The girls in white! Min Dee had only just bought that dress about an hour ago from Top Shop.Â
Poor Esther had to be the photographer.Â
Apparently one of their dance moves. Heh.
If you think Mun Teng has a wide range of pan cute expressions, Mel’s got her own set too.
I’m giving the “Such is life” pose. It’s sort of our “wtf” or “fml” which basically means “So what can you do?” This is Mel poking my cleavage and me going such is life.Â
Abby dear and me and my distracting purple hair tie.
Liss, Abby and myself in a chokehold.
Abby and Mel trying out all new poses.
Another bed photo when we are all glammed up!Â
Copying each other’s dance moves!
You can see I was really into it.
My idea of a provocative pose. May differ from society’s.Â
Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance was blasting from the room’s stereo we were surprised that the hotel management did not kick us out.Â
We had our own little dance floor before taking on the real thing.
The girls calmed down for awhile for another photo.
Showcasing what each and everyone of us was wearing to the club that night. Mel’s leopard print dress.
My slinky trival motive dress and a bracelet which I have already lost. 🙁
Esther in her chic black outfit.
Min Dee in her aforementioned new white dress from top shop. With her height and the length of that dress, it was such a great combination.
Sush in a sweet soft cotton top and a light pink skirt.
Abby’s little black dress.
Liss and her bright blue top!
Oh no! I realize I didn’t take a picture of Mun Teng’s outfit. 🙁 Sorry MT!Â
One obligatory one with the room mirror.
Sigh, the visibility of a double chin is my sacrifice for my friends so that they look good and can all fit into the picture. Liss proved her blurness once again when she didn’t know who did the far left profile belonged to. It was her own face.Â
We were there rather early, as you can see.
Sush and Min Dee getting our drinks for us.Â
Mel was getting a little pink too. I like the slight redness on my own face. If only I knew how to apply blusher like that.Â
My head is life half the size of their bodies.Â
Mel showing off her gorgeous bag she bought from a Barbie flagship store in Shanghai.
Me staring at my RM19 bling bling bag from Sg. Wang.
With Sush and Min Dee.Â
“Let’s go to Velvet now!”Â
Esther’s turn to get a little pink.
Kissy pic from Sush and me.
At this point I was a little bit too happy. Some random guy took this photo for us and while he was still holding on to my camera I turned to the girls and said loudly, “He is really cute!”
Liss and I. More like restraining me from dancing alone on the dancefloor, which was empty.
With all our busy schedules, it is indeed rare to just come together and have tremendous fun. I’m the only one still in uni save for that future Dr. Ang Su-Chien dwelling in Australia, so you can imagine lah. Trying to organize a short holiday is pretty much a nightmare as there is no such thing as school holidays anymore.
As the night wore on, almost everyone was trying to swat me away.
Totally getting the pan cute expression wrong.
Mel and Mun Teng adoring each other.
I seriously don’t know why I took this photo.
Pretty disco balls hanging from the ceiling!Â
Everyone was in the mood already.
Mun Teng and her abuchak pose.
Right then, so I wasn’t the only one dancing anymore.
Camwhoring while walking over to Velvet.Â
Bumped into David who was there with…. I’m thinking Amber Chia, Alex Yoong et all? 😛 I think lah. Can’t remember (anything). Haha.Â
The rest of the gang were celebrating Marcus’ 23rd birthday at Velvet.
Myself and the birthday boy.Â
Sparklers on top of the Moet case.
Hello Hui Shan!
It was quite a big crowd that night!
I’ve always heard of Moet but have never seen it, and not in this size too!
Liss getting some love from Mun Teng. MT seems to have a lot of love to give out.
The birthday boy told me something really funny a few weeks after that. I have this problem where after a certain amount of alcohol, I become a crybaby drunk. Simple things can trigger the tears. Very very very simple. Too embarrassing to say but at that point in time it seemed as if it was the saddest thing on Â ever. So there I was sitting on one of the sofas alone sobbing my heart out (thank god the make-up was still intact!) thinking no one saw me since it was so dark. But little did I know that everyone saw me and you know la guys damn scared one when they see a crying girl.Â
So Marcus came with his champagne glass wanting to clink glasses, “Heyyyyy – *sees me crying and immediately U-turns*” Â The boys told Mel and Esther, “Uh, Jolene’s crying” and they were like, “Haiya always like that one. No need to care.” Yeah really no need to care one. Hahaha. Just my stupid weird self.
Me and a Moet.
Yum seng to the birthday boy!Â
Another photo that I love so much!!Â
Customary forcing drinks into the birthday boy.
The birthday boy gets the girls.
Can see my eyes a little bit swollen? Haha, luckily the mascara, eyeliner etc were still intact.Â
Seriously don’t know what I was doing. Hahaha. -__-
Another one with E-Guy.
I think this was after we sang a birthday song for Marcus and he felt shy.
Mun Teng was sad because the club closed at 3am.
Making Marcus finish the remnant of the drinks.
Was happy after that.
Walking back to our hotel.
Mastering the damn sad face together.
Buffet breakfast the next morning with a bunch of really fresh looking girls.
Wish I could say the same about myself.
We decided to end the awesome weekend with a trip to Zouk Spa (go Zouk Club then go Zouk Spa) for a massage. Was about RM50 for an hour, full body. Not too bad! I think the skills of the masseuses there are pretty good.
All five of us had a room to ourselves! The missing ones were downstairs having a leg massage instead.Â
One happy photo before we left.Â
I look like a monkey here, but don’t agree lah okay.Â
Till the next girly weekend getaway! 🙂
