Should not have bothered


So disappointed.

What's up , u may ask? Well,  a couple of weeks back , I received an invitation from a friend for her bday party yesterday. The theme was cartoon / fairytale character and we were expected to dress up for it .

Now, I always get excited for themed / costume party and would definitely put in the effort to dress up. However, it had been really busy the past few weeks and what to wear to the party was the last thing on my mind.

But my friend kept reminding me every few days or so , that I MUST dress up ! Because she said that her guests had always been the 'sporting' ones. I just obliged each time she talked to me ... again , just pushing the thought to the back of my mind.

However, on Friday , the husby and I managed to end work slightly earlier we thought that we should just go to a costume shop and get something from there.

Thus, we ended up at Masquerade at Arab St ... I got excited naturally. Haha! There were so many costumes to choose from that I forgot that my main aim was just to grab and go .

After a few tries and discussion , it was down to two - Peter Pan and Tinkerbell or Shrek and Princess Fiona. CUte, ain't it? I've always have a slight inclination to want to be different ; I guessed Tinkerbell would not be anything new. Therefore, we decided to go with the Anti-Hero and his fair lady. .. :P ...Super excited , I tell you! Because I got to wear a wig (orange hair, pigtailed) and tiara... and husby's Shrek costume was just outrageous! LOL...

Yesterday evening came and we were on the way to the party when we decided we should take a quiet peep and see if others dressed up. I mean , I wouldn't want to be in the limelight , ALL by ourselves, in case others did  not . We kept the costumes in the car and proceeded to the function room. our disappointment , I only saw a Pocahontas ( she was pretty in the whole outfit ..but is that according to the theme?) and a few bunny / Shrek/ Mickey Mouse headbands. That was it.

Oh man... we have bloody wasted our time and money , renting those costumes. I was rather bored too at the party although the host tried her best , I guess. We decided to go off earlier and headed for my grandpa's place.

Oh well.... lessons learnt:

1) Not everyone is as fun and 'game' like my mum's family.
2) Next time , seriously , DON'T BOTHER at all!

I am still sad about not being able to be Princess Fiona but I shall end my post with happy thoughts and fun pictures at niece's birthday party last year :)


Back to work tomorrow! Definitely not looking forward to it!
