Black is the new Black .. a bit of food pOrn!

Swanky events hall @ client's office

Joe, Jose and I went a-vroom in the trusty ol” slug mobile to an all-black party this evening.. It was hosted by some friendly folks from a well-known creative firm , and was set in their very swanky office/events hall  in a 2-storey shophouse. Think crushed velvet, chandeliers and gothic candle stands.

Ok, we have to admit that we were soo caught up in the food and service grind that we forgot to take pics! We only remembered to take snaps of the salad and the dessert.. boohoo.

Operation Dessert Storm!

The battalion of sweets, all lined up and ready for Jose to pickup! Erm, Operation Dessert-Storm? ** call the corn police!**

It’s almost 1am…. gotta go tango with my pillow soon. We’ve got another busy day ahead! Tmrw, we’ll be turning a corner of the garden slug into a “living room dining area“.. Some happy folks will be having their dinner home-style, complete with leafy potted plants, cushy sofas and huggable cushions. Gdnite y’all !
