With friends and fun, who needs sleep?

We were asked to write about our most momentous day of 2008 for this week’s Star Blog.

My immediate thought was, “That’s the party I just had which I just blogged about.”

I tried to think of something else. But nothing really came close. Truly, my most cherished memories are those when I’m gaming. Haha. Especially gaming with friends.

So the party is what I wrote for Star Blog, although I tried to write it differently, plus I threw in a new video.

Wii Mario Party 8 for a party of eight

Morte and Wang Wang just bought a plasma TV so we all invited ourselves over to play Wii on their lovely new TV.

Nanny Wen made dumplings for our dinner. (Even though the Dumpling Festival is already over.) You can count on Nanny Wen to do stuff like that.

Quite appropriately, she wore her Little Miss Late t-shirt.

In reponse, I wore my Emily t-shirt.

We decided that it was damn cool, so we camwhored a good while before leaving for Morte’s place.

When we got there, the boys played Bleach on the Wii while the girls heated the dumplings.

The fruits of Nanny Wen’s 4.5-hour labour!

Wang Wang dug out her stylo teapot for us.

Nanny Wen’s dumplings rock! Yum! And then, it was time for Wii!

Mario Party 8 is currently THE best party game because up to eight players can play at one time. Provided, of course, that you actually have eight wiimotes.

We only have four wiimotes collectively, so we had to take turns.

[Edit: I got mixed up with another game. MP8 can only accomodate 4 players at a time. Thanks to Mince Pye for the correction!]

It’s a cute game!

But I’m not going to talk about it because I’ve put it on video.

We spent like three hours playing it because it’s a progressive competitive game that takes quite a while to get to the end, plus we had to do it twice so everyone got a chance to play. But it was so fun I wouldn’t have minded playing again.

But the boys wanted to play Project Gotham Racing 3 on the Xbox 360.

How could that be???

Super zzz.

After MP8, PGR3 is like watching water boil.
