I don’t even remember how we ended up deciding to go to Cirque le Soir our second night, but we did. As usual, I took a backseat in planning our itinerary- I’m usually happy to tag along in experiencing whatever Ade and Puey (the chronic planners in this group) put on the table for our trips, whether it be inhaling the expensive air of branded shops (which is really all I can afford), or visiting circus-themed nightclubs on a spur of the moment. Just as long as I get to see new sights and possibly take pictures for my ailing memory.
Once we got back to our hotel after a day’s worth of exploring, we found ourselves rummaging through our luggages in an effort to put together club-appropriate attire. It’s quite boggling that none of us even planned for the clubbing scene for our trip, yet we already went to clubs the first two nights in Shanghai. I had packed sparingly, so it was pure luck that I brought this black neoprene dress from Forever 21 along. The alternative was my temple dress, which was absolutely out of the question- I went to a club in Bangkok wearing that a month later and Ottie said that it looked like a nun had gone crazy. Haha!
At the lobby of the shopping mall where Cirque le Soir was located… the chilly night air was blowing right at us because the automated doors opened when I stretched my arm out for a shot, so this photo actually accounts for that moment right before our reactions. XD
Cute bartender making our drinks. Ade and Puey expressed their shock at my whiskey because it was the strongest of the bunch (they had ordered mixes), and it didn’t help that I’d ordered mine neat because I didn’t want my drink to be diluted. I guess it was the first time they had seen me displaying the influence of living in places where alcohol is a quadrillion times cheaper than in Singapore.
It was a great night. :)
