A sneak peek at the Nuffnang Pajama Party

Here’s a quick peek at the happenings of the Nuffnang Pajama Party on March 15, held at Borneo Baruk Club in KL.

I don’t think there’s any blogger as hardworking as me today, waking up at 7 am on a holiday to blog!

Ok, here are some of the highlights of the party, in no particular order.

  1. Pajamas galore! Sexy, cute, innovative, elegant, stylish, weird, crazy, boring, ugly, questionable! All kinds of pajamas to be seen! Here’s mine:

  2. Party games and prizes! The Nuffnang staff came up with really crazy and fun games that had people scrambling around the club all night, creating all sorts of chaos and madness.

  3. Special appearances by celebrity bloggers Xiaxue and Kenny Sia!
  4. Dawn Yang kisses a lucky blogger! (Don’t you want to find out who? Heheh.)

  5. A sexy quad of a nurse, a French maid, a Japanese schoolgirl and a policewoman hosting us all night!

  6. A showcase of birthday videos made by prominent Nuffnang bloggers!
  7. The Chipster man (who won a Wii for quirkiest post)!

  8. Nuffnang founders Ming and Timothy got sabo’ed!

  9. Malaysian Dreamgirls!

  10. Free flow of Chipsters and Twisties (and drinks)! There was this nice lady that went around the club all nght offering us packets of Chipsters and Twisties nonstop! Cool, huh?

There’s more, but 10’s the magic number so I’m gonna stop here.

That took longer than I expected. I’m not used to working on a laptop and editing photos on lousy Microsoft Office Picture Manager. (But I suppose I have to be thankful that I even have that to use.)

Actually, I wasn’t even planning to blog today (since my time in KL is short and I want to get in as much shopping and eating as I can).

But I went to bed at 1:30 am and woke up at 5:30 am and then couldn’t sleep anymore! Even though the hotel bed and pillows are so so so soft and fluffy and comfy that you would want to die in your sleep in them if you were forced to die in your sleep!

I tried to go back to sleep but it just wasn’t working, so, after lying awake for 1.5 hours, I finally got up at 7 am. I decided to write this preliminary party report since I had nothing better to do while waiting for the Goonfather to wake up.

I had to disturb his sleep earlier because he didn’t log off the laptop properly last night, so when I powered it up, the laptop wouldn’t recognise my fingerprint and insisted that the computer was going to stay locked until I swiped the correct finger.

So I unplugged all the cables and took the laptop to the bed and tried to steal the sleeping Goonfather’s index finger to swipe. Hahahahaha. It was damn hilarious lah!

But it kept failing because I think maybe the angle was wrong. Then the Goonfather woke up and the WTF look on his face was just priceless.

He was, like, why the f*** is my laptop here???

I said, “The laptop is locked and I need your fingerprint lah!”

Then he mumbled something incoherent and proceeded to groggily click a few buttons. Then, suddenly, the screen went back to the main menu where I could now swipe my finger legitimately to log in.

So I didn’t need his stupid finger after all. Wah lau waste my time and effort to plug and unplug cables and lug the laptop to and fro! Not that the laptop is very heavy and the hotel room is very big, but I just want to complain, can?

I feel like a noob. Ok, fine, I’m a noob! This is only the second time I’ve used a laptop at length, the first time being yesterday when I wrote yesterday’s blog. I miss my PC at home! But I must admit that having a laptop is pretty handy.

Ok, more Nuffnang party reports when I get home!

But you’ll probably be flooded with party posts by the 200-300 other bloggers that attended the party, by then.

Happy Sunday!

The Goonfather talks nonsense

I decided very last minute to attend the Nuffnang Pajama Party (happening tonight in KL), so after dinner last night, I got the Goonfather to drive me out to buy some pajamas.

At first, I thought to seek his opinion.

“This one nice?”

“Too transparent.”

“What about this one?”

“Too transparent.”

“This one???

“Too transparent.”

I chased him out of the store.

And then I bought the most transparent one on my shortlist. Hawhawhawhaw!!

Actually, none of them are transparent lor. Men are so exaggerating.

After getting my PJs, we bought two cups of fresh fruit juice before getting into the car, ready to go home.

In the car, he handed me his cup.

“Wei!” I complained. “Why I become cup holder?!”

(It’s not that I generally mind holding his drinks for him while he’s driving, but we do have a drink holder in the car. In fact, we have four drink holders in the car, two for the front seats and two for the back seats. But he’s always throwing junk (receipts, pens, coins, cards, used batteries, unwanted phones, cables, even metal brackets) in the holders instead of leaving them empty to hold drinks, so why must I suffer for that?)

The Goonfather said, “I’ll finish the drink and find a dark lane where I can throw it out the window.”

“What dark lane? Singapore roads where got dark lane one?” I continued complaining.

“Got. It’s where the dark cross the lane,” he whispered conspiratorially.

“The dark cross the lane?? What the hell are you talking about?

“Later you will see.”

“See what?”

“The little duckies crossing the lane. That’s the duck lane.”

WTF.

TOTALLY LAME CAN??!

(Note to foreign readers: In Singapore, we pronounce “dark” and “duck” the same way. Totally unacceptable, I know, but what can anyone do about it?)

Anyway, when we got home, I went to my computer (which is always the first thing I do when I get home).

On my screen, I saw an MSN message tab flashing on my task bar. It was from the Goonfather, which was very strange because he was with me all the while.

I opened the chat window and read:

    The Goonfather says (9:16 PM):
    Why you try pajamas so long?

    The Goonfather says (9:18 PM):
    Me stand outside waiting until falling asleep!

Dotdotdot.

I completely forgot that he was fooling around with my LS KS20 while I was trying on PJs.

It’s really hard to stay annoyed with someone like that!

Anyway, I’m in KL now. I’m so freaking sleepy because we left home at 5:45 am and I hardly slept. But there’s no time to sleep! There are luxurious baths to take, yummy food to eat and shopping to do before the party tonight!

We’re staying at the Shangri-La this time. It’s not as luxurious as Maya Hotel but it’s not too shabby. We got complimentary mangoes!! I’ve never had complimentary hotel mangoes before. They’re always giving out gimpy fruits in hotels.

And we got a shock just now when men suddenly walked past the outside of our wall window. There’s no balcony and we’re on the 17th floor. I can see one of the twin towers from our window. I don’t know where the other tower is hiding.

It turns out that some kind of renovation or cleaning work is in progress and the men were riding outside the windows from floor to floor to do… I dunno what, actually. They walked to and fro the length of our window a few times and then disappeared downstairs. We couldn’t see very clearly because we had the translucent curtains drawn.

Oh, I can’t take photos now because I left the camera in the car. I suppose I could use the laptop camera but I don’t want to. Plus this laptop doesn’t have Photoshop! Photos of free mangoes and skimpy transparent PJs will have to wait. Heheh.

Ok, enough of blogging! I need to go enjoy my weekend!

Stay tuned for my Nuffnang Pajama Party report!
