Here’s a sincere word of advice: DO NOT LOOK AT THE ABOVE PICTURE.
Last weekend MANZA put on a drinks night with the theme of ‘bad taste’. It was a good opportunity to drop some inhibitions and meet some new people. This, surprisingly, wasn’t too difficult, even for someone looking like a porn director and trainee pedophile :(
In point form, my attire consisted of:
- Slick hair with fluffed up back-end (Mafia at the front, old skool Mel Gibson at the back)
- Salmon shirt with two or three too many buttons undone
- Light blue jeans, cuffed
- My yellow belt
- 1991 Nike Air Trainer Max 1s
Kelly simply wore every pattern she had all at once, including baby blue striped anklet socks with pink pumps. It looked worse than it sounds.
The event was held at The Hilton in KL, with buffet dinner and drinks covered in the ticket price. What wasn’t covered however was my eyes being subjected to some… err, interesting costumes and behaviour. Nothing too out there, unless you think Tampon Man might be too out there? Or middle-aged women sporting teenage g-strings (Kath & Kim style) is too out there?2
As well as meeting some new folks, it was the perfect excuse to (finally) take my 580exII flash unit out to play. I’ve had it for a while but never used it out in the real world. I quite enjoyed it. I got some impressive exposure results on the 100% auto setting, and tried a few other tricks and settings throughout the night.
I quite enjoyed
the beer the night — shouting at new friends over the 80s pop tunes, and testing out my camera gear while dancing!3. Look forward to the next one.
PS. To anyone reading this that was at the event, I knew my fly was open all night long — it was a bad taste party…
