Hey guys and gals!
How's everyone doing? Hope 09 has been treating you with goodies ya! We @ Ardent ended March with the launching of 'Flight of Green Fairy'.. Abstinthe babeh! @ Werner's On Changkat.. located along Jalan Changkat Bukit Bintang.. TWE Enterprise did all Malaysians a favour in bringing in Absinthe.. until yesterday I thought it was still banned in the UK but it got lifted a few years back.. wheee!
Originated in Switzerland.. I guess when the whole world was so into starting wars and such, our good swiss friends just went the happy booze way.. which wasn't all that bad.. with an alcohol content ranging from 45% - 75%.. yeah 75% babeh.. the only legal alcohol drink that has a warning, do not consume more than 3 shots of any one time.. hhhmm.. don't drink and drive ya!
We were guests of Ben Ng ... that mixologist dude who's hell bent in making me a bankrupt, one shot at a time.. anyway we were there early at 5.30pm to take some pre-event shots of the place..
Anyway, to cut a long story short, we got to meet a few familiar faces such as Sugu from Zeta Bar KL.. We got to meet Vincent and Michelle Loh.. really fun, friendly and down to earth.. Eva.. the boyfriend gal who made that lovely gift (a collection of informative and creatively designed cards, tied with a string along with a tiny bottle containing .. you guessed it.. Absinthe..) , Felicia.. the gal whom initially performed a 'tarik harga' routine... 'aiya a lot of photographers to choose.. I get back to you...' then later.. she's like in every other picture.. aiya headache la to photoshop.. hehhe
Of course, not forgetting Timothy as well as Keith.. what can I say.. not much especially after Kieth started the conversation with 'I got this back room' which probably didn't mean anything but after Absinthe, it just felt so wrong.. in the end, we got to know that the room is white.. mostly thanks to Kieth.. all we ended up was informing Kieth that he might have missed a spot on the ceiling.. keep trying dude! winners aren't quitters ya! hahahhaa (I've a feeling I'll so get poisoned by my next drink from this dude!)
Andreas.. of course.. the charming dude from Werner.. thanks for welcoming and making us feel at home.. you got an amazing place!
Finally, congratulations to TWE's team in making this event a success.. maybe next time Ardent can be an official part of it as well You guys and gals conducted your roles professionally, payed close attention to the finer details, passionate and above all, Jacky and I left the place feeling deeply honored to have met all of you.. whom if I maybe so bold, to call my friends..
I hope to see all of you in the near future.. In the mean time, as a snippet of what went down that night, here are some of the pictures.. the rest can be viewed at our profile gallery located here ..
