Monash Ball 2006:

Generate Your Own Glitter Graphics @ - Image hosted by

Could still smell the hair spray in my hair as i killed myself in Fitness First on Saturday. In front of me was N, the main organizer of the ball. Further in front was K, my classmate who the instructor of Bodypump. Just another day at the gym, the day after the ball. The magic is lost.

So distant... yet so fresh in my mind! =)

The narcissist side of me emerges! 3 and a half hours getting ready for the ball. Whoa. Did i really take that long? Mom took the pix, she loves me! Too bad i'm too shy to pose when i'm with her. Unlike bro...

Ohhh, love this hairstylist! Been doing hair with her for the past 3 proms/balls. Simple, fast and cheap, my do cost only RM21. Shortly after date arrived! With some foreign student friends who needed a ride. 4 guys and i'm the only girl in the car! Hahah. Weird.

Even with bad traffic, we got there real early. Chilled at the cafe, 5 of us. Date asked, want a drink? "No", i replied, assuming i had to pay, what to do i'm a modern girl! =P

Only when he said, "My treat", i said "ok!!!". Hahaha. He noted the sudden change of mind! I just laughed la. Nice iced cappucino! Hehehe, should have taken a pic

Wait wait wait, cuz DL, who has our tix checked into a room n was still getting ready. Saw my secondary bestfriend at the ball, either she pretended not to see me or she didnt see me or my make-up made me unrecognizable. She didn't so much as look in my direction me. In fact, she looked away. And her date is someone she swears she has no feelings for for about 2 years now. He didn't say hie to me either. But he probably didn't recognise me, he looked damned blur.

Who cares!?

Went to DL's room. Was expecting some student rate dump, but guess again! Total utter coolness, damn it, the picture is Date's cam n not in mine. DL and 4 other guys were dressed in suits and ties and they were at this long table playing cards ala casino!

Told us to take a look around the suite. So Date and i did. Camwhored too! Wahaahah, check it out.

Look at our smiles, just look at it! Being on the couch automatically makes u smile that way!

So soooo much fun!

Hehehe, he sat there and i pointed the camera and said "Pretend to be some bigshot business man!".

Look at this!
His n hers toilets! And there is a jacuzzi too! But didnt get a pic of that.

Soon after the girls were ready and we left the room and to the grand ballrooml! No goodie bags for us fashionably late superstars!

My Date requested swapping dates for this picture. So he's with DL's girlfriend, the very stunning JL from TAR College and i'm next to the 'head of the casino table', DL.

Pictures of the others at our table for ten is not in my camera... and i'm really upset to learn that the picture of the Monash Cheer Team captain YM, her boyfriend M, DLYS and her date J did not turn out! =(

But this one turned out really well! =)

SC and i. I'm so glad she pulled me to the ice sculpture for our photo. The ice is of the Monash University Student Association (MUSA)'s logo! Super cool. Loving the night.

Next. Bloggers!
Blogger JT and i! =) Super sweet and nice girl, she booked my airline ticket for me and we're flying off together on the 12February! Future Monash University Peninsula Campus girls.

When hunting for people to snap pictures with i caught sight of another blogger, MUSA's Publicity Officer, i called out "J! Take photo" and he said "Ahhh, Sue Lin, my childhood friend!"

Photo is from his cam, mine turned out bad. But this one is soooo good, since we were looking at my camera and not at his, this picture has the 'we're-superstars-and-everyone-is-taking-photos-of-us effect!' Hahahaha

Aiyoh, soooo sooo sad that i didn't see Miss Publicity Head of Monash Business Club or her boyfriend that night! So sad. She's a blogger too =(

The whole night is about taking photos! Regret not taking a photo with the Monash King, his nickname is King, cuz he claims to be "the king of the world" and we call him King, thinking that his name really is King... know that fella from the Cheer Club! Hahah. He performed the talent part well, he danced and striped, and when he striped, he even took off a bra! Funny

The next photo is of three Cheer Club members: Me (who can't dance), HM who doesn't have the body of an anorexic but can dance really shit well, she performed for the ball but i must have missed her performance =( and my beloved Monash bestfriend DLSY. B, if u are reading this your lil sister is a shit good, hot dancer!!!
That's me, me Date and an intruder in purple! Hahaha, just kidding, R's a friend to the both of us so took a picture together. Her boyfriend took the photo, poor guy, kena bulllied again! Haha

Top left: Sort of study partner KH, really scary guy... cuz he's so hardworking! Been meeting him in university every Sunday for the past two weeks to do assignments!
Top right: Tiny and cute ST, one of the few Ausmats left in Monash. She eats like mad but she's forever slim!
Bottom left: Head of security for the ball, ex-president for CPA Accounting Club, CM. Love this guy! HW, if u are reading this, ur boyfriend is sooooo kind hearted and generous with knowledge! Love him!
Bottom right: My Date again, ignore him! Haha, the guy sitting down is crappy crappy L, President of the Christian Fellowship. Used to hang out quite a bit in the first year.

In the picture below, my Date and i, and H,this super friendly Malaysian who is from Singapore! He's funny and REALLY good at remembering names and faces!
DLYS again, K and i! Ever so polite K. Going to miss seeing u every Saturday at Fitness First next year!

My Date had to leave at around midnight. Dun laugh at Mr Cinderella, he has a trip to Melacca the next day! Haha. A picture of us together.

Love the lights, makes us look like movie stars! Before leaving he gave me a handshake (cuz he's friends with E). And then he kneeled down and kissed my hand!

Malunya, but DLYS said "Wah so nice!" and she wanted it too so he did it for her, and i feel less stupid! Hahaha. My Date's a gentleman! Haha, i find it weird, in this modern world.

During dinner, when we were eating, the was a slow song playing n he asked me if i could dance. Eh... i've taken classes 3 years ago but threw it all out the window, but u know your Blogger, she likes adventure, so she said "Simply dance la".

Then he asked me to dance! A bit shocked la, as much as i love adventure, normally they open the dance floor only at the end of the ball (trust me, it's my 4th Ball... actually it's my fifth), so i conveyed my concern since i dun wanna be a dungu dancing there.

So he went up to ask! Too bad, i was right, dance floor ain't open.

The dance floor opened RIGHT after he left. DLYS was the one who coaxed me into staying longer, she offered me a ride so that i wouldn't have to depend on my Date. The first song was a slow song and she danced with her date.

I felt shit out of place man! So lonely. I missed E terribly. And i wanted to call my Date to bring me home- he probably hasn't reached his car... i called once. Twice. Three times. Line busy. =( I sat down at the closest chair i could find. And started to sms E loh... Hahaha.

Thank God, for me, that they only played one slow song! Hehehehe, then just butt into DLYS and her date. She welcomes me wan. But try to leave them alone a bit and went to CM's group. And then back to DLYS... and then onto the stage, danced in a circle with some of the new cheerleaders... =)

The crowd started to thin down... and my feet started to KILL... and then they announced that it was the last song...

Ah. It was wonderful relieving the night writing this post. I blog as if i were writing in my Diary, engraving my memories on paper, i mean online. Though it's a night i wouldn't forget, i wouldn't remember everything in minute detail. Love Blogging =)

Free gifts! From Forever 21. They allowed us to take a few so i got one for myself.
One for my bestest study partner L who wasn't there that night.
One for WS who helped me put on my make-up (DL told me i looked chun and YM said i looked so preeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeety).
One for DLYY who skipped class and accompanied me shopping for the ball, she also dressed up my Date for me, she lent him a coat and a vest =).
One for C, her bday is coming soon. Hahaha =P She's been a great friend for about 5 years now.
My Date helped me get a J for my lil baby sister!

Last but not least, me! Un-photoshopped, nothing.

Ok a little photoshop but just cleared the background... don't want the photoframes of uncles and aunties in this pic!

Hope u had as much fun reading this as i did writing it! =)

Ahhhhhhhh such good response .... dam good

jMs said...

wat an amazing trip down the room... keep those pict rollin... say cheeezz

sue lin said...

Mas, some of them commented twice. And i commented many times!

Hey Jms! Thanks for the visit and the comment!

Hard for me to keep the pix rolling cuz i'm more of a descriptive person than a camwhore. Besides not like i go out clubbing or to such places that warrant lots of dressing up and make up. I'm more of a simple gal.

Unlikely that u'd read this but i feel like typing it out anyway!

Daniel Tan said...
