Loof and Potluck at Ben’s

June 4, 2012  |  Friends, Life

Loof, loof? Roof?

We went out last Thursday night to the Loof for one of their Underground Party events – this particular one was spinning songs from the 80s/90s. Charles really loves his Mambo nights and music from that era that he gathered a group of us to go together. The entourage was made up of myself, Sanjay, Yu Ting, Samantha, Rling, Geeling, Skybear, Hubert, Hanyong and Edwin.

We had a lot of fun laughing, fooling around and taking pictures. The music wasn’t exactly familiar to me. I thought given that I was an 80s baby, I would have recognised at least 1 song. Unforch, that was not the case! Lol. Other than the absolutely snail-movin’ service at Loof (which a couple of people at the table exclaimed that Loof was well known for that), we had an enjoyable night entertaining ourselves.

Check out some of our pictures. We hung out till 1.30am on a Thursday night and boy was I zombie-fied the next day. Gone are the days where I could push 4am nights and still be up and running at 8am. :x

Potluck at Ben’s

Come Saturday night was potluck at Ben’s place. Ben is my friend who co-founded the Chan Hampe Galleries which I blogged about in my previous post. He was having a potluck and invited myself, Yu Ting and Charles along to join the party. Yu Ting made her legendary Lontong, Charles made his awesome homemade fish Otah and I …

When they asked me what did I “make”, my answer was, “I BROUGHT Tandoori Chicken!”. Haha, a good way to circumvent a difficult situation ;)

Clockwise from top left: Me, Ben + I, YT + Ben + Charles, Dirk + Douglas + Wan + Eaton + Charles, Food!

Food was wonderful, company was even better. Beautiful Saturday night well spent. I often prefer cosy gatherings much more to large parties where I hardly get to converse with anybody at all. You know how you seem to be saying a lot to somebody, but you’re really not saying anything at all? Happens too often at huge parties but Saturday night was just comfortable and nice. :)

Can’t wait for the next Potluck party at Charles’! What should I make ….

Dionis, signing off.
