Scene 1

There were actually 2 gatherings I went to and I was overdressed for both :) Both were Eye Ball Parties for groups I recently joined.

The gathering place for the 1st one was a Starbucks cafe inside a local mall. Unlike in the US, Starbucks outlets here are usually places where fashionistas (and wannabees) hang out instead of just a simple place to drink coffee. People actually think that being seen at a Starbucks cafe would make them look 'cool' and trendy.

I knew it wouldn't be a good idea to meet up there - I was right. I don't really understand why people think it's cool to act snobbish and indifferent.

I tried a new approach though - i smiled (a lot), shook hands (instead of just nodding) when introduced, and made physical (appropriately) and eye contact.

i don't think they knew what to make of me.

It wasn't exactly a great party. Most were trying to appear 'cool' by being distant and uninterested. It was really dragging and I was relieved to leave by 11:30pm.

Things I noticed:

  1. The anorexic look was "in"
  2. I was a lot more mature and confident
  3. I like Madonna's songs :)
  4. I can pretend that i'm having a great time

On to Scene 2...
