Auld Lang Syne Devils' Bar

It came to an end for one of the top nightspots in Singapore on 31st March. I suppose it was in the plan to close down DEVILS' BAR when St. James was opened. When we learned of the news, Miko got to work immediately and messaged all the regulars to meet up on Friday (day before the closing) in Devils' Bar.
The response was amazing and suddenly we were transported back to what it was like 3 years ago. The same old faces were there and we did all the stuffs that we used to do before - Simon with his supply of chewing gum, dance on the bartop, stripping Ken (hee~), and ............ TABLE, TABLE! All of us partied and drank like there was no tomorrow (at least I did ;p).
You know how it is like with the friends that you got acquainted at nightspots; it's usually just hi and bye or probably the closest you'll get is sharing the same toilet bowl as you puke. But guess I got lucky. That's because I found true friends and true love all in the same place. The most unlikely of places.
As the night progresses, we started reminiscing and getting sentimental. It may sound really strange but we (DBBs) actually started tearing. Not due to the effects of alcohol of course (I can't speak for the open crying at the end of the night though :p) but we were just very grateful that we found each other. It was totally overwhelming for me (I'm known for being overly emotional) and all that was in my mind then, was how much I cherish this bunch of friends and the love that I have. Without a doubt, I know we are going to be friends forever till the end of time.
From drinking kakis, we became kopi kakis. That's how much our lives have evolved. Gone were the nights of weekly partying. Now partying is just done on a 'when necessary basis'. So naturally, having been out of touch for so long, I was an embarrassment by the end of the night. I felt like an imbecile that I had a hard time keeping a straight face when I had to face Ken and his friends the next day. Not to mention the terrible hangover. Sheesh.......

Our fav bar stools. Erm..... & we've fought with people over them many times before. *hangs head guiltily* I'll always remember the episode where Marilyn & I became best of pals after that. (Our mutual respect went up a notch each.)
And this is the grill that we hang onto for dear life as we dance on the stoolsI kinda overdid it with the colour contrast thinggy on photoshop........
Here's a much better pic with Noelle's camera
DittoMy beloved DBBs
Noelle flaunts her back while I flaunt my tummy (albeit a fairly flabby one :p)Only after uploading, did I realise I didn't take single shots with Ju & Kelly. So sorry darlings.
Peishan was there too
I wanted to take a candid shot as I caught these 2 talking animatedly while deep in conversation. But they're so well trained that the instant I whip out my camera, they went into auto-pilot posing mode -_-"'
Friends forever
Jasper, the bar manager
And the dancing begins - check out the empty dance floor.
On the platform dancing with Miko. The girls were pleasantly surprised to see me decked out in my partying gear. They haven't seen me in this get-up for a long time. This used to be my party dressing in Devils' Bar and I thought to dress up one last time for old time's sake. And for the benefit of those who hates me and will be tagging me to dress my age. Don't worry, I know my figure is not what it's used to be. I do know how to dress appropriately.
Ken finally arrived & as I happily posed for a pic with him, the girls (as always) will rush into the frame. See... they're so expert that they look like they were meant to be in the pic in the 1st place. *kow tow*
Good ol' dependable Zijian who always got arrowed to drive us home so that we can drink as much as we want. Hee~Hee~ The hunks
I really admire Simon for his energy
And to oblige us, the DJ played our song. "The book is on the table". The moment we hear it, we were up on the stools and shouting away. Very cheena (Haha.... but who cares)
We even managed to cajole Jolene to get up. Hmmm..... actually I think you have a big part to play in the drunkard mess I was in :p
Met a new friend, Joey (Hope I spelled your name right) I'm very flattered to know tat you are an avid reader of my blog. Forgot to get your number that night. Do email me so that we can maintain contact =D
Just like old times
Took a pic of them while I was dancing on the DJ console
Things kinda went blurry from this point onwards
Haha....... I'll leave it to your imagination
And if I haven't said so lately ...... I love you
And at this point, I have absolutely no recollection whatsoever!
