NDP “Appreciation” 2013

I remember enjoying NDP 2011‘s appreciation event, which was also my first, very much. But ever since last year, there is an obvious downgrade in the events – from hotel to hall. I wouldn’t have minded so much if we really feel appreciated, that’s all that matters, but I really don’t and which is why I decided to skip last year’s event all in all.

I wanted to do so this year as well because watching a 2/5 stars kiddy movie as appreciation event is just *roll eyes*, but since everyone’s going I figured that it would be a nice reunion and I can just go there to eat and skip the stupid show.

Went Chinatown to choose my qipao for the shoot first before meeting June for shopping at PS, because she wanted to get shoes AGAINNNNNN! -_-” But 15 minutes into the shopping, she suggested settling down somewhere for coffee instead so that she can eat our favourite Tong Heng egg tarts that I got her…hahaha! Super tam jiak!

Left for the appreciation event, which was held at Lido Shaw; slightly better than last year’s hall idea, but still mediocre. To me, it’s still the true appreciation that matters, not all these shows being put up.

Anyhow, I managed to “smuggled” June in, with advance notification and permission of course (:
So glad that she’s there with me, if not it would have been real boring. I think all the aunties were happy to see her again too, especially after her “makeover“! Hehe!

So our real motive was just to eat and show face (and go), but it turned out that even the food choices were disappointing -.- Yea you see many trays of food, but if you realised, they are all repeated. I can even count what I ate – 1 stick of Toriyaki chicken, 1 square piece of pizza, 1 sausage, and 1 apple strudel.

I was secretly hoping that they catered some macarons from the Canelé beside, but sadly, all we had was lots and lots of the same apple strudels x.x

Although it wasn’t a formal event, all the cute aunties took the chance to dress up and they were like, “Take photos, take photos! I had not worn a dress for 20 years!” LOL.

Catching up with old pal! (:
This auntie was wearing some slimming pants that she claimed helped her to lose a few inches! But sadly, it costs more than a K =OOOOO

I guess the only thing that we enjoyed was the instant print service where everyone was chasing the poor photographer around to get their pictures taken! Haha!

I stood on the sofa because Yu Sheng is wayyy too tall but it turned out that I look like Sadako climbing out from TV D:

Last shot!

Continued our shopping at Far East and after bringing June to almost all the shoe shops in level 1 and 2, she finally found her desired pair! 😀 Time to head to Wings for some food and drinks~!

Eric’s Pimm’s something, June’s Mai Tai & my Mojito!

And as usual when June’s around, we ordered so much foodddddddd!!!
I think the big plate of salad was cleared by me =/

Saved a little bit of each dish for Lyn, who joined us later, and we formed a platter for her! xD

The stubborn little girl finished her glass of Mojito like it was some mineral water and ended up having a face like a big red tomato -_- I don’t know which is worse, someone who can’t drink or someone who can’t drink but insist on drinking.
