The BIGGEST Party is Back.... Hennessy Artistry '09


The whole KL was there, were you???

It was one of the most anticipated party of the year, having been to the last few (@Aloha, @Orange, @Bkt Kiara'08), when I heard over the grapevine that @Bkt Kiara'09 is coming, I know I'll not miss it for anything!

Danny, Jill, Me, Ziling

Many pictures ahead, and I'll let them do the storytelling. Sorry to waste your bandwidth for once!

Recession times calls for recession size glasses....

Of course not! For all the Artistries I've been to, good times or bad, the organizers never scrimp on the size of their free flows! These shots are only meant to tempt you for more drinks inside! But really nice touch though- the welcome drinks and the cute glasses. Wasn't drunk enough to steal a few of 'em home.

The very awesome DJ Decks

Following are pictures of my fellow colleagues (who are all very hip&haps).

Eric, Me, Jessie, Stef

Fellow MTs- Me, Stef, Danny, Jill

Aaron, Laurence, Me

Stef, Rachel, Me

Ziling sesat in the 'colleague' crowd

Some LED dancers and DJ spinnin' in the background

Fatman Scoop in da house!

I thought the only act worth listening to was only One Buck Short (yoohoo to our own homeband!) and the DJs spinning in the beginning and end. Nobody really paid attention to the rest in between as we were either, 1) Busy drinking 2) Merry-making 3) Don't know what they singing 4) All of the abovementioned.

For the Very Important Party People

... and the Super Important Party People

The VIP areas were segregated into 4 sections- V.S.O.P. All 4 VIP areas had their own bars, sitting lounges and great view of the stage.

Moving on to pictures of collegemates, long lost friends, family dan lain-lain!

Shoniya & Me- long lost&found high school classmates!

Jill is everything in between- colleague, collegemate, friend dan lain-lain!

Jill & Co

Jill, Suet Li, Me- long lost&found collegemate

Calvin, Jill, Jen, David, Me

Me, Citygal, Eiling- Ipoh girls reunited!

David, Jen, Calvin- Two photographers and one red chiq

Greg, Eiling, Me- The usual Artistry gang

Jen and Calvin- Spongebob's greatest fans!

... last but not least, some sisterly love!

Overall, I must admit the party's better than last year's but the drinks (mixers) were abit disappointing this time. I still prefer the Hennessy Miami (with lime juice and mint leaves). Full credits must be given to the organizer and event management co for the great set up of the event (from the breeze registration, photography sessions- where's ze polaroids?, security, entertainment, bartenders, design and set up of venue...). Hopefully the powers-to-be will stop being an ass and restrict this&that! Grrrrr.

Other than that, well I had a great night!

Did you?

Last but not least... Krispy Kreme

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

I know I may be the last to blog about this, but I guess it's better late than never! Anyone and everyone who has had a Krispy Kreme will say the same thing, "It's ze best! So fluffy, melts in your mouth blablabla... I wish KK is in M'sia!"

Berjaya Group heard your wishes and saw the opportunity in bringin' KK to our Malaysian shore... and *tadah* it's here now, currently at Mid Valley and Times Square and many more stores soon, I believe you'll soon be able to find all three popular doughnut stores- KK, JCo and Big Apple together in the same mall soon, just like where there's a Tesco, you'll find a Giant.

New York Cheesecake

Chocolate Glazed Cake

Cappucino Kreme

Glazed Cruller

Green Tea Twist

Hershey's Cookies & Cream

Hershey's Dark Chocolate

Powdered Strawberry Filled

Almond All Over

Original Glazed

We bought the Combo Deal 2 which consist of a dozen of original glazed and a dozen of assorted at RM37.90. If you want to get less than a dozen, each sells at RM2.50.

While this is not my first experience with KK, I would say I am less than impressed actually. I had my first bite when E brought 2 original glazed back all the way from Dubai (yes, travelled the miles by air, through immigration and customs, taxi ride.....) and they still tasted better than the supposingly fresh ones from Mid Valley. The assortment is nothing to boast about, then again I prefer my doughnuts original- no fancy toppings pls. However, I find the original glazed here overly sweet.

Pop-8 secs-Enjoy!

It was an impossible mission to finish 24 doughnuts in a day, so it's best that you pop them in the microwave for 8 secs to enjoy a warm piece of sweet dough.

Carnivore @ Chijmes, Singapore

Sorry for the long spell of silence, been way too busy to even go to the loo.

Pardon the jakun in me, but I have never heard of and been to Chijmes @ Singapore, so during my latest trip to the neighboring country, my colleague suggested we have dinner there, I was blur for a moment......... until I found out that Chijmes is NOT a restaurant but rather the name of the place that houses a few restaurants, bars and shops.

Chijmes sits on the old Catholic convent building. What is truly amazing about this place is, where else can you dine, watch football and have abit of happy hour drinking on a holy ground? The night scene is amazing too.

We had dinner at Carnivore which is a Brazilian Churrascaria. What is so attractive about Carnivore, as you may tell from the name itself, is the meat buffet! Meat, meat and meat galore! Definitely not very vegan friendly hehehe. I hope you read the ALL YOU CAN EAT header :-)

Supposingly condiments to go with your food- bell pepper, cheese (which looks like peanut biscuits/tau sar peah), and some salt-like thing.

Vegans can eat this buffet spread, real carnivores wait for the meat in skewers!

Before "carnivorous" mode was on.....

... And after! There's lamb, ham steak, chicken, beef, sausages, and fish. Be a caveman, we don't care.

The passadors (knife-wielding chefs) move from one table to another bearing a sharp knife and skewers of meat. They will carve you your meat, all you gotta do is....

Indicate Yes! or No! to more meat! Besides meat, there is also grilled pineapples (warm and sweet- yum yum!)

Finish the meal by balancing the (un)healthy diet of protein with some vitamins :-)

The corridor of Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus (CHIJ). Now what do you think does CHIJMES means?? Hmmm...

Carnivore @ Chijmes
30, Victoria Street,
Chijmes, Singapore 187996.
