Hurray guys! I’m blogging frequently now! Yes, I’m sad, but I can’t stay sad forever right? I’m gonna talk about Saturday’s church event I had, American Party!!! It really cheered me up a lot. The event started in the afternoon and it lasted till about 7pm. American Party was held at Loading Bay Café, for you guys who didn’t know where it is, its near Kembangan.
Here’s an overview of the place and the pictures they took when part of the committee went down to see the venue before the event:
Its a Christian café that has a enchanting ambience in it, and very chill! By chill I mean its very chilly + its a good place to chill out too haha. There’s even like memory verses on the walls, and the café owner is so nice to me! I didn’t have lunch, and Florence didn’t wanna order Mac’s for me (boohoo) and everybody seems so busy so I’d just thought I have to survive on a mere piece of cake from the café but the shop owner was so nice, he made my day hahah.
So….if you’re wondering why the event is called american party, it’s because we’re inviting The American band, CTI(carpenter’s tool international) came to Singapore for this event 🙂 they flew all the way from America and yes, they’re REAL Americans, not just Americans who live in Singapore. They simply wish to be here to let people know more about Jesus through music 😉
I’m really glad to go because recently there’s this cafe hopping culture–and buffet +free flow of drinks are served too! The food was so GOOD that night,Vans and wenxin went for 3 rounds I think. Wenxin says she feels like a pig hahahhaa. Oh and there’s even ice cream and yummy handmade desserts served after that. Basically I think everyone at my table ate a lot HAHAHHAHA.
My table is no. 12 and it’s one of the biggest tables in the cafe, so honored right :’) then there’s Michelle, vans, nachi, Su min, Cynthia and wenxin sharing the same table as me.
And this is like the prayer cards we have to make for the rest of the church members to pray for the event 🙂
LET THE PREPARATIONS BEGIN:
Running on a treadmill on high heels because swag 😉 and no I didn’t fall
They had this really big and gigantic storybook in the cafe and vans tried to be funny 😉 I really miss the good old days when I still had my childhood bedtime stories from my dad.
Preparations lookin’ good! Everything was just strewn all over the table and they’re pumping/blowing balloons. Of course there were people doing sound check and cutting streamers and using chalk to draw on the blackboard…I just love the messy state of the cafe before the event, it has the party-gonna-begin kinda feel. Until the moved all the bags and everything to another room! But it’s okay, they soon started blasting music, guests started arriving and let the fun begin!
Alwin and Ariela singing 🙂
PHOTOTAKING AFTER THE EVENT:
This photo was taken because everyone kept commenting how Florence looked like Su min, and none of them really agreed, and wenxin insisted their nose looks alike (LOL!) so we took this down to show them. So, do you think they look alike?
It’s amazing how close vans and nachi is; I can’t believe I have just witnessed a friendship blossom to such a best-friend-extent in such a short period of six months. Maybe it’s because how close she is to him that enables me to be able to refer to him so casually like this even though I have only met him for one day, but there’s nothing to be awkward of.
Managed to take one with Marcus, a really energetic guy and his vocals are really good.
And Michelle! Her parents are from hongkong but she’s born in Canada, before she moved to America. Going international! The fascinating thing is, she still knows how to speak Cantonese!!
And this is just Tricia and Florence fooling around with my phone after the event. As usual when I pass my phone to anybody I’ll end up finding a bunch of repeated photo spams in my phone. So let’s create a gif! Because I can’t decide which one is the nicest.
fooling around again…
NO words are express our lameness. Deciding a decent pose for a picture at the staircase? They captured it all down instead 😉
Now let’s give a bit of attention to the decor! It was really nicely done and drawn.
Ok then I don’t need to explain much further, as you can see people one by one just came to join me in this balloon adventure HAHA.
A few FORMAL shots:
We all love the painting by Van Gogh!
This is so crazy, Su min and I just found some pillows on the couch that are so nice and started playing with it. I think I was so high that day that I could literally play with anything haha. But Su min, if you’re reading this I’m just so thankful that you could come and god brought you here. Remember, you don’t have to thank me for inviting you, but I thank you for coming and I feel so honored. I believe all along you are a chosen child of god. I hope I can continue growing in The Lord with you and be sisters in Christ!
It was a great great evening spent with great great friends and company.
