Dark Light

Jeezz, never ate so much in such a short lapse of time. It was Nivine’s birthday yesterday, 25th. So we had to make things big. We booked a table at Shangri-La’s for the evening Buffet which is amazing. That is where we went 4 months ago for our graduation party dinner and boy it was nice… grilled chicken skewers, sushi by the dozen, marshmellows with melted milk chocolate running down a heated fountain….. ahhhhhhhhh. We were joined by fellow batch mates Zane from South Africa, Sil, Nivine’s flatmate and the usual suspects, namely : Ben, Gregory, Matt, Richard & Jupiter. Down at the restaurant we also caught up with another gang of francophone (Raphael, Nadia…).Very good start to the night. We managed to get our hands on much appreciated food anf then decided it was time for some drinks down at Long’s Bar which happens to be 20 metres away from my flat… Then by 1 o’ clock we trotted our way down to Zinc for some moves. The usual night really. Really fun night. Check out the picture below.

Also on todays agenda was the monthly adrenaline rush in the build up to the publication of our rosters for the month of August. Not disappointed, but I still have Bombay, Doha and Tehran turnarounds (sic) which I’m having an overdose of lately. The highlight is defo the JFK (New York ladies and gentlemen) with the one and only Melanie and also my not one, not two but threeeeeee HKGs (Hong Kong)… She was the wild bacthmate and we haven’t flown together at all. Actually I haven’t flown with anyone since the start apart from Alicia on one of my suppy… So August roster goes like this :

Thinking of the layout of this month, I’m thinking of swaping one of my HKGs for something else… Does anyone want my turnarounds ??
