Yes, we did have a Costume Party. The catch is you don’t get to see a lot of us in our costumes. maklumlah.. cantik. Huahuahua.
My best attempt at photoshope-ing after having erased my face and coloured it blue a couple of times.
Happy 23rd birthday to Miyaki. Sorry we had to celebrate it a few hours early since you’re off to see your beloved today. More pictures after the jump.
Miyaki’s costume reminded me of Mrs Morticia Addams, Za and Yooni were goth-like with their smoky eyes look, Jet was the Corpse Bride with a sweet black garland on her
big small head. As for myself, the look was supposed to be ‘pucat’ but I ended up looking like a vampire in drag with my purple top and punk-like hair! Everyone else was in black.
As the celebrated one, Miyaki gets to wear a witch-hat (the one I pinched in the picture above) whereas the rest of us have a vampire cape and a glow-in-the-dark-fang each.
We had 2 very talented party decorators at hand – Za and Yooni. This was what they came up with. (Most pictures were taken before the lights were switched off)
Creepy crawlies hanging by the thread from the ceiling, skull balloons and rambu-ramba.
A skeleton scene-setter on the wall. Fan-like folding of napkins on the table.
Meet our pumpkin. Carving by Yours Truly
Vampire Minci Lestat went up to Miyaki’s lair to pick her up. There were no posh broomsticks or pumpkin coach. Just our swift legs running down the steps of the stairs. Arriving at the party, we were greeted by the ‘chanting’ of the birthday spell.
Happy birthday to you
Happy bithday to you
Happy birthday to Miyaki
Happy birthday to you
Plain Chocolate & Vanilla fairy cakes decorated with Philadelphia cheese icing. Mixed red and yellow coloring to make it orange. The spiders on top were plastic accessories. Created by again.. Yours Truly.
Miyaki blew the candle and we started devouring the food while watching our party movie. When the clock struck midnight, we gave Miyaki her presents.
To prepare a meal fit for The King or in this case.. us, we had the best of the chefs a.k.a. Jet to do this. It was a scrumptious meal of Beef and Pumpkin curry. According to ASDA.. ‘A Wonderfully rich curry packed with aromatic flavours of Thailand’. The original dish was to use lamb. Recipe is available for download here. [Minci Scribd]
For drinks, the initial idea was to have eyeballs lychee drink. To get that effect, we were to stuff the lychee in the middle with grapes. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any tinned lychee. Thus, Jet The MasterChef suggested we have Ice Cream Soda with Raspberry fruit in it. Boy it was delicious!
The curry dish, our funky straws & the foam of our drink.

Spongebob Halloween Special.
It was a party to be remembered.
