Hey hey!

Congratulations to CK & Jane from The Embershoppe @ The Curve in Mutiara Damansara on their 1st year anniversary! which was held last night.. it was a packed event with people both in and outside.. all busy enjoying themselves awaiting some of the competitions such as rolling ciggs competition to be held later that night..

Jacky and myself was unfortunately too tired and didn't want to over extend outselves and had to leave.. the good thing is there were others willing to take pictures of the event..

We @ Ardent are pretty easy going, not meaning that we are professionals we MUST stamp our territory (unless if its a paid event then of course we'll do what is necessary to get the job done).. neh.. frankly our behavior also reflects that of our host CK.. and besides.. do we really need so many pictures of the same thing? don't want people to get flash induced 'star gazed' looks going back home..

So these are the only pictures taken by me that night.. as requested by Mardi.. That's Ardent's good friend Ben Ng who's covering his face in sheer shame of being linked to Mardi who's allegedly gay.. kekeke Cool

Tho hide as much as you can, its just a matter of time before Mardi gets his day.. luckly bro, you ain't bending over to pick up that bar of soap.. Wink 

There was another event on last Friday, 12th of Dec 2008.. those pictures will be posted either in the work section or on this blog once our lovely client gives the green light..

Till then,

Seriously, the 2nd hand smoke from every participant in a small room at a time when The Curve air conditioning is on the fritz, really gave me a dizzing headache... and have yet to recover completely.. potent stuff..

        Initially I wanted to post all 69 (nice number) pictures here but realize most of you would just end up scrolling like mad through the pics.. So I took the liberty to port it into Ardent's work section under Events. Now all you need is just to sit back, relax and enjoy the jazz music and let the scandalous pictures rolling by.. Just click HERE

        If any of you guys and gals wants prints or the softcopy version just drop me an email : and give me the picture number. Or just say the secret password and thau shall receive the 'rest' of the pictures.. ahem ahem..  

p.s. No its not Abracadabra.. Only Mardi gets to be Aladdin.. Tongue out

Hey guys and gals.. yesterday was one helluva pot luck.. lasting from 6 to about 12.30am.. 

All I can say is that last night's Halal Noodle Research paid off.. and paid of it did! with interest.. everyone loved it..  unfortunately the credit can't go to Ardent as our calling isn't about being the best Mee Goreng 'Cookeder' (the name I heard while watching 'Mind Your Language' looong time ago).. rather its about capturing scandalous pictures for sale.. Cool

Everyone had a great time.. tho one thing was missing.. there were unfortunately no Indians around to seal the 'Deepa' part of the celebration.. So I guessed ultimately it was Raya Pot Luck kinda..

The food was amazing.. we had green chilli chicken rendang which was fantabulous (so good until its worth my time to check on the spelling on that word).. Chicken curry was nice.. but what was interesting was Soya Bean Jelly in a tube! I got to say, Jones is a genius to come up with that packaging.. by the way he offers 'sex' as well.. Nothing is what it seems @ the Embershoppe!  Francis did a great job in preparing the soya bean.. and Vincent who made it look like... white stuff in a plastic tube.. that looks like.. No! there isn't any picture.. use your imagination..

After Vincent's stunt, it was no surprising that Jones came up with the idea.. of packaging white soya bean in a plastic tube..

All in all it was a fun night.. 

I'll be checking with CK to see if he wants the photos printed.. as much as people say about digital photographs.. nothing beats printed photographs.. it just feels more authentic and just engages the crowd rather than flashing images onto a monitor.. just doesn't have the same feel..

Anyway I'll see how the pics will be handled.. some of the pics may or may not be posted here or in face book  ... Erm.. is this the time to give a certain group of people that night ardent's bank account number? Cool

It was so scandalous that some gal wanted to give me a kungfu panda death pinky move.. I'm printing that picture in 8R.. 

Met up with a gal Esther.. who's really sweet and had really good taste.. she's the only one who wanted a picture with me! lucky gal.. and ok fine.. lucky me as well.. would have wished to have more time.. Sorry baby, got work to do.. next time ya!

Last night was a real weird night.. never in my wildest dream that I would have thought to have ended my Friday with.....

Halal Noodle Research!

For the sole purpose of getting fat.. :P well I can't since my clothing will start to strike on me..  Its for a good cause.. for a Deepa Raya (Deepavali and Hari Raya Combo) celebration ala pot luck style @ The Embershoppe which starts around 6pm today Saturday 25th October 2008.

We headed down to Uptown to search for the best Halal Noodles.. Can you imagine going up to a shop and asking for Kueh Teow Goreng, Mee Hoon Goreng  and Mee Goreng and having to sample each ala American Idol Judges style.. minus the high pay, large Coke cup and Simon Cowell.. :P

In the end, this is what we summarized..

Chinese cooking style serves better Mee Hoon Goreng and Kueh Teow Goreng while Malay styles serves a kick ass Mee Goreng. It was the best among all 3 hence we ordered for 30pax of Mee Goreng for tonight.. Yum! 

We @ Ardent would like to wish Selamat Hari Raya to all our Muslim friends and Happy Deepavali for our Indian friends.. and Happy Holidays.. for the 'dan lain lain' / 'others' .. Cool Drive Safe! 


Adrian & Jacky
