I was in the ‘jungle’ near Bakun and the mobile coverage was really bad but I called him up anyway. First time talking to the man. Excerpt of our painfully transmitted over the sucky mobile coverage went something like this..
Me: “Hello, Josh? Bong here.”
Josh: “Oh, yes. Bongkersz. Bong Chan Siong.”
LOL! No need for the full name man! I lost count how many times we asked each other “Hello… can you hear me?” or repeated “Yes I can hear you fine.” during the short conversation. HAHA!
He asked me whether I would be available in Kuching on Friday night for a project. I told him maybe, because I wasn’t sure I would be back on Friday. Anyway he said he would provide me with the details the next day. I was invited to partay Xpax Xplay Party at Paragon, Travillion, Kuching!
I wasn’t overly excited at that time because I wasn’t sure I would be back in Kuching on Friday night.
Then on Friday morning, I have decided to go on a road trip with my colleague, driving back from Simpang Bakun to Kuching. He dropped me at Betong around 4pm and I then continued driving to Kuching with @Emi_Mel. We started around 5.30pm and reached Kuching around 8.30pm and we were ready to partay!! *chanting* Partay people partay people partay people….
Checking with Mr. Josh if I am already in the list.. (click image for full size)
We went to Paragon, Travillion around 10pm and I was surprised that my name was not in the list. I asked them to double, triple check and showed them the tweets from Josh but they still couldn’t find my name. To cut the story short, I managed to get in the club after contacting Josh on phone and he directed me to a lady called Rosemary. But, too bad I didn’t get the ‘VIP tag’ and thus had no access to the ‘VIPs area’ and of course, no free flow drinks for me…
The VIP tag, cheekily named ‘VXP’. This is Fahriee‘s tag… (photo stolen from him as well)
I managed to sneak up to the VIPs area for a while and stole a shot with my Crackberreh!
Anyway I had so much fun at the party. DJ Monkey and DJ Funkzu iz teh shitz! Love the beats churned out by the both DJs, really nothing short of awesomeness. I kinda ‘duh!’ when some club Djs playing the same old shits, repetitively cos I rather listen to the radio for that. Keyword here is ‘repetitively’.
This is DJ Monkey. Nice inks man! (photo stolen from Fahriee again)
There were other performances as well, by Soul Higher and Shawn Lee.
Sorry for the poor quality picture hahaha!
Shawn Lee the beatbox machine! Fahriee was not doing him justice when he’s busy tweeting there lol…. or was he tweeting about how awesome Shawn Lee was? Hmm… I recorded the part where Shawn Lee was beatboxing but the sound quality is so crappy for me to put it up. Sigh. One word for Shawn Lee, madness!
Put your hands up in the air partay people! (photo stolen from Xpax’s FB Page)
With Fahriee and Rosemary. (photo stolen from Fahriee)
Huarghhhh! (photo stolen from Fahriee)
Kuching definitely need more of such event to cater for the crazy party revelers here. Looking forward for the upcoming edition of Xpax Xplay party! (They were partying at Opera, Sunway on Saturday night and from the photos.. damn it sure looked like a blast!)
ps: A short hiatus from this blog (last post was a month and a half back…) and the first post after the break is about partying.. 😀 Now, Rainforest World Music Festival (RWMF) is just around the corner…
pss: I no longer look pink after few sips of alcoholic beverages because I am few shades darker after many days slaving in the jungle..
psss: I think the tagline “..when blogging is a constipated affair.” fits this blog real nice now…
