Parties, Uncategorized, Wedding WEDDING: the hens night 19 December 2009

So, before the wedding, my Shanghai hens night was planned 🙂

It was fairly chill, actually. Or at least, not as wild as a hens night could get 😉 “No strippers please” was the only rule, because let’s face it, guy strippers are really not very attractive to watch! So instead, we had a deeeeeelicious Spanish tapas dinner @ Bonito to kick off the night. Man their food was good. I loved every dish – great quality, substantial serving sizes, and a delightful waiter… who was in glee at a whole table of girls in the middle of his restaurant 😉 He was too cute! I love tapas with friends – you get to share food, drink lots of wine, and try out so many dishes. What could be better?


Peter Alexander pajamas (worn as a dress, haha)

Taken with my phone – Super cute lace and silk ribbons!

Bonito for Spanish tapas

Cherry tomato, fresh mozzarella and pesto

Creamy prawns

Delicious fried calamari

Stewed beef

Fried potatoes in chili oil and sour cream. OMG. Amazing.

Croquettes

Veggies

Lamb chops

Omelette thing

Squid ink paella!

Amazing warm chocolate cakes

Afterwards we hit M1NT – one of Shanghai’s hottest nightclubs. A colleague of mine is a stakeholder there, hence we got the surrounded-by-glass-walls table, offering spectacular views of Shanghai’s night lights. So pretty. It’s a great club, with lots of beautiful people. Great for people watching, not-so-great on the ego 😛 But it was fab to be able to lounge on the sofas since the majority of clubbers there don’t get a table and so have to stand around with their stuff stashed away somewhere.

Not many photos of the whole night cos after awhile I put my camera away. Other girls took photos but I haven’t gotten ’em off their cameras, oops!


At M1NT nightclub – we scored the VIP table at the corner glass windows 😀

Sexy girls!

Looking a bit smashed (we’re not)

Massive aquarium with sharks

Gorgeous!

Dunno how this happened, but it looks cool 😛
