Cafe Del Mar Relaunch Party 2010

July has been a very electrifying month.

First I have my new Mac (yes!) and I have also successfully converted Sis and Dad to a Mac user too. Heh.

Secondly, I managed to sell away my pair of extra Jay Chou concert tickets and am looking forward to his show this coming weekend! I bet fans in Singapore will be bowled over by just his mere presence.

Thirdly, I'm back to working part-time (hate the hours but at least it's paying for my meals) and sold my PSP too.

Then there's also my Bintan trip which I enjoyed tremendously, looking forward to travelling again.

It's also a month of parties, only that it began last month with Cafe Del Mar's (CDM) Relaunch Party 2010! Love the ice sculpture by the buffet table for us VIPs. :D

CDM advertised at Catalog magazine for this event and I'm thrilled to have won VIP invites + a $50 F&B to spend on the actual day! A pity Green Man couldn't join in the fun because he has to work (sigh).

The last time I visited CDM was about the year back, frolicking by their pool and having shooters. I still love the bar-by-the-pool concept by the way, still uber cool.

I had the company of female friends instead, and because Mei Jun also won VIP invites, we could bring in more friends!

Upon arrival, we registered in exchange for wristbands and goodie bags. Yes she looks so happy because the goodies in the bag was pretty awesome - we each have a pair of sunshades, a notebook, tag necklace, bracelet and vouchers.

Check out the shades with the word "Cafe Del Mar" carved on it.

We had used the voucher on their Mixed basket.Because the weather was terribly humid, we had found a quiet spot by the corner to while away 6 hours. Hur.

I was the only one who had an alcoholic drink, and although it was recommended on the menu, this concoction of Tequila and redbull tastes horrible! It should have been "Must Not Try!", yikes.

Since it was a party, there were activities lined up and we decided to explore the vicinity. We were a little early, the flea market wasn't even set up! Haha.

Free ice-cream was available in four funky flavours. I had mine in Guinness and white chocolate. These were provided by Seventh Heaven, and apparently you can customize your own flavours too! Awesome.

We went on to visit Lyndia at her Tarot Card reading booth, where question reading was available. The girls wanted to ask on Relationships, so I followed suit and Hui Tian even recorded a video of my reading!

I got to say all her readings about us were pretty accurate, we might even consider doing a full reading with her! Don't know about you, but I kinda believe in Tarot Card Reading and Palm Reading and the likes. Hur.

The airbrush tattoo booth is probably the most popular amongst the scantily-clad bikini girls. We only went to do ours after they left (for obvious reasons!). Heh. Mine's a batman right at the back. I'm even more convinced to get my real one done. Hmm.

Paul & Joe had a booth by the entrance with two of their Princesses providing free makeover using their cosmetic products from its  new Summer collection.

Oh we had plenty of fun at this booth, it's also where the girls urged us to join their search for Miss Sahara 2010 in one of their upcoming event.

All we had to do was to upload a picture of ourselves with a P&J product on their Facebook page.

Here's what we took:
Mei Jun

Yong Lin

Hui Tian


In the end, I was the only one who sent my photo in and called for support in terms of voting on FB! -,-

Even the moisturizing  mist smells so nice, but more importantly helps to moisturise the skin and get rid of the icky sticky feeling on the face.

I found Claresta very familiar on the day I met her, yet we couldn't pinpoint how we'd met before. Hehe, but we became friends anyway! :D

By then it was 4pm and we had more time to kill, so we strolled along the beach, past Wavehouse...

... And began a string of beach camwhoring. 

Most of the time, I was helping the girls to capture glamourous pictures like that to replicate the feeling of a paparazzi shot. I must admit though I really do like some of the pictures I took of them. :p

Yong Lin insists on having emo shots instead. Just kidding!

Mei Jun have more than one of these stylish shots. The sky's so blue!

The lighting was ideal for camwhoring.

Hui Tian tried VERY hard to mimic after Mei Jun. Haha.

"Quick! Take a picture of me now! Very natural! Got wind! Hide my teeth!"
Then my camera died on me, and we depended on theirs for the rest of the night. The night scene was much more happening, with a lot of people streaming in enjoying the new food selection prepared by Cafe Del Mar, wine, booze, babes and photographers.

Special performers like fire-eating men entertained the crowd by the pool and outdoor daybeds.

Had a dip by the pool alone and talked chatted with a young English man (guy on left), quite a charmer, but Green Man is on the way! I think he was bored because his couple friend keep making out in the open and nobody talked to him. Haha.

We left soon after Green Man came to start the second part of the night.

Thank you Cafe Del Mar and Catalog for the outdoor fun!

 Love the goodies, keep it up! :)

P.S. Will be updating on Paul & Joe Miss Sahara contest next! :)
