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 planningÂ our itinerary- I’m usuallyÂ happy to tag along inÂ experiencingÂ whatever Ade and Puey (the chronic planners in this group) putÂ on the table for our trips, whether it beÂ inhalingÂ the expensive air of branded shops (which is really all I can afford), or visitingÂ 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 ourselvesÂ rummaging through our luggages in an effort to put togetherÂ club-appropriate attire. It’s quiteÂ boggling that none of us even planned for the clubbing scene for our trip, yetÂ we already went to clubs the first two nights in Shanghai.Â 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 lobbyÂ 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 whiskeyÂ 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 seenÂ me displaying the influenceÂ of living in places where alcohol is a quadrillion timesÂ cheaper than in Singapore.
It wasÂ a great night. :)
