Cheryl's Hen's Party - 25 Sept 2010

*this was written before the wedding
when there's a wedding coming up, there's always a Hen's night (or Bachelor's nite - if it's a guy) to be planned and organised. and my cousin was to get married on 10th of Oct. so her maid of honour started to plan a Hen's night for her. here's what we did.
we all met up at E&O for a very traditional English high tea. tea and scones and sandwiches and cakes and tarts were served to you. it was my first time there and i enjoyed the food and the place.. makes you think u're somewhat related to Queen Elizabeth! lol

the scones were quite lovely!! :) and for Cheryl not being a tea drinker, she did quite like the fruity (or was it orange) tea she choose. and i never had cucumber sandwiches before ( i thought it would be bland) but it did actually taste nice! good to catch up with the girls, had a few laughs and talk about the wedding...

she had no idea what was up next ! hahahah.... what was it? it was a ride around town in a trishaw! it's fun yet scary as the trishaw man tend to go against traffic and cars kept driving to close to it. unfortunately seats were small so we all had to "adjust" to fit 2-in-1.

they took us from E&O pass through Convent Light Street, the court house, esplanade, Fort Cornwallis, and down to Market Street. of course we had to make a few stops as the trishaw men were kinda out of breath and tired. when we stopped at Market Street, we got Cheryl a flower crown for her and she looked more sweeter! fits the occasion! good idea Becks! and then she had it on everywhere she went :)

when we reached back to E&O we drove to our next destination, dinner at That Little Wine Bar. i haven't been there before and was excited to see what they had. it was mostly a French Restaurant run by Europeans that also had other western food.

Cheryl having her first champagne! she said she never tried it before. and for starters, we ordered her fav dish - CHEESE PLATTER! as you can see from the plate, loads of different cheese. some were nice, some were not so nice. another of Cheryl's friend (who is also our mutual friend) arrived and then we ordered our mains and salads. we had something called Duck Pasty. it was duck stew wrapped in pastry like a package (quite big)... it was kinda burnt but the inside was nice... something new and different.

don't think the night ended just like that! we then headed to Hard Rock Hotel to try to catch some live-band-lounge music and maybe a drink. and when we got there, surprise! they had a cancer campaign thingy going on where Ray Rozells and his band were playing. entrance was just RM30 with a drink. so since it was a good cause, why not! right? :D

Cheryl ROCK ON!!!
there were canopy's with "stages" in the middle of the pool so that you can sit on bean bags and cusions while enjoying the music. love the concept! we were just chilling till the event ended! i thought it was a good way to end the night! and someone was kinda tipsy that night! ;) heheheh... hope you had a good time Cheryl!
