I love parties. Especially if decent free booze is provided.
Costume parties could be fun too.
Especially if they provide decent free booze.
There's some party happening tonight and I'm supposed to dress up according to my assigned alphabet.
But being the poor corporate slave that I am, I have nothing to wear and no money to spend!!!
How ah. How to come up with a costume with NO BUDGET?
Had the initial idea of going as a Starbucks Barrista. So went to an actual Starbucks outlet to ask if I could borrow an apron for the night. "no" they said. "company policy". Fine, stingy pokers. Give you free marketing at a blogger party where there will definitely be tonnes of free exposure because every other blogger has a camera, and every single blogger has a blog, also you don't want. What to do? I will not five up! I will try to go through proper channels the next time, should there be a next time. I would even volunteer to take up classes if they needed me to. Oops. I shouldn't have blogged this out loud. Now other smart alecs are going to try and steal my idea. I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN IF YOU DO.
So, a little dissapointed, Plan B had me running around Orchard Road for an hour to acquire props for my costume.
Wanna try guessing what I'm going as?
See you there. :)
Answer: I went as a Shopaholic (assigned alphabet was S- that's why the Starbucks barrista), but the shopping bags were empty. I wished they weren't though. :(
