Have been wanting to try out The Dainty Squid‘s Photo an hour but didn’t really have a good opportunity until yesterday. I wasn’t really keeping track of time, which is a good thing since I won’t feel forced, but being busy for a couple of hours had made me bummed about it. Better try next time!
8am // Bun-ed up, ready get the house chores rolling.
9am // Cleaned up Xiao Bai’s cage. He was preying outside the kitchen patiently, came running back home to ask for food the moment I’m done cleaning. Clever boy.
10am // Rushed with the printing of props for the photo booth while expressing my excitement for the surprise over WhatsApp with Emily.
11am // Outfit of the day. Top (from SIXTIES) Bottom (from Bugis Street) Pink-Navy Bag (from Riot).
12pm // Ended up taking a cab to the airport. Spent too much time at Popular when I didn’t have to in the first place.
1pm // Got too excited upon meeting Emily and was overwhelmed by both of our nervous feeling towards the surprised. No snapshot.
2pm // Got engrossed into lunch, especially Satay Bee Hoon which turned out to be disappointing, and over Gong Cha. Still feeling hyped up and nervous about the surprise. No snapshot.
3pm // Settled down after the surprise with some cutting for props on hand.
4pm // Last to go and I’m done!
5pm // Carrots are my favourite. These mini ones just make me so happy!
6pm // Personalising our styrofoam cup. Creativity at its best.
7pm // Only five bothered made an effort to doodle for recognisition.
8pm // Too much catch up and making fun session over dinner. Oh, and the dirty topics too. I don’t even. No snapshots.
9pm // Cupcakes from Twelve Cupcakes to end the day.
Le Haus Partayye bubbled up from the spontaneous and rebellious (Intan‘s parents were abroad) part of us. The other reason is all of us get to gather since donkey years.
During a random conversation on Wednesday, Emily and I somehow came up with the idea of her coming over to the party. We thought it would be more fun to keep it a secret, so I hid the fact from the other 7 guests, that included the host and my boy. *gives an angelic smile*
When I picked her up from the airport, we thought about how their reactions will be like and start panicking. We can only imagine how Intan‘s reaction will be like but not the others! “What if the surprise fail?!” Yah, that kind of idea got stuck with us for the whole early afternoon.
It was really nice to watch as their eyes went big and exclaim “OH MY GOD!!! Why are you here!?!” Although I felt REALLY bad for not keeping my promise to be there earlier to help in the grocery shopping and decoration.
Despite getting teeny tiny over the budget, the party went well with damn great food (in my opinion). What matters (to me) the most is that the rest are happy with Emily’s existence and the special guest is happy that the surprise went better as planned.
With a crazy weekend like that, I’m pretty sure Monday will be blue-st than ever. Good to Intan with all the crazy photos (Yes, that means I’m waiting LOL) editing and scanning. Now it’s time to get ready and hop to town!
