So I attended another INTI Ball, organized by INTI International University’s 14th INTIMA Student Council, for the 5th time consecutively.
It was held at the Crowne Plaza Mutiara, Kuala Lumpur. Quite nearby to the Pavilion.
Take note, I’m no longer a student in INTI alright?
This is the lobby, by the way.
On the way to the ballroom, we were requested to pick a card from a box, and the info on it determines our “blind date” for the night! Cool…
But you all know lah, I’m a very shy person. So I didn’t go look for the mysterious girl. Damn, sure wasted if she was a hot chick!
Okay enough with the mysterious girl. Let’s move on.
The theme for this year’s INTI Ball is “The Venetian Masquerade”. Sounds so classy and sophisticated huh?
Anyway, my table was Table 18. Nice number right? But unfortunately it was situated at the side of the hall.
The nice thing about the table is that everyone gets a glass of orange juice and plain water. Although orange is my favourite but I never drank even a sip that night.
My blind date card on the left and the ticket on the right.
The event started off with some dances by the committee members.
Even though we were seated quite behind, we didn’t miss out any activities happening in front. Thanks to the screens.
The booklet for the night. Unfortunately each table only has 2 of it. Back then, we used to give each participant one.
Oh yeah, in case you were wondering – I went with some of my Student Council comrades from the 12th INTIMA term.
Here’s a picture of us with some of the INTI’s top management personnel.
It was fun as we get to catch up, make fun of each other, talk nonsense and share gossips, as always.
There were challenges for the Beau Monsieur and Belle Madame titles (or simply known as Prom King and Prom Queen) but it wasn’t that interesting.
After a while, dinner was served – buffet style.
The set of food looks really good. But very, very cheesy.
Just look at the thick sauces. One plate was pretty filling for me.
Then some light desserts to end the dinner session.
After that, the performance session for the night commenced.
Firstly was the INTI All Stars – a small choir group.
After that, it was No House Rules. Their performance was the entertaining one. The vocalist, Calvin Chung, was pretty good in moving the crowd.
He got some to shake their bodies on the dance floor.
And when the band sang their singles, Kuala Lumpur Blues…
More people came out to dance.
I didn’t dance though. Shy lah!
Then the last performance was a song sang by Miss Claudine Egbert.
Right before the closing ceremony, the dance floor was opened for anyone to dance.
Sorry for the blur photo, but it seems that the dance floor has become a railway station – everyone was doing the “choo-choo train” move. =/
Oh yeah, did you realize that the participants must wear a proper themed mask throughout the event?
To be honest, I didn’t get any mask for the event. I went there mask-less! I’m so rebellious right? =P
But I tried some of the masks owned by my friends.
The Phantom of the kenwooi.com? Not nice lah.
The peacock mask. Do I look beautiful with it?
But the most uncomfortable thing about wearing a mask is that I can’t wear my spectacles and therefore I won’t be able to see things clearly.
Even if I do, I’ll look like a weirdo!
So I got an idea! The next time I attend such an event, I’ll certainly get my secret mask that will improve my vision without glasses.
The truth is…
I am Iron Man.
Overall, it was a simple INTI Ball. Quick performances, smaller crowd, simple agenda and no freebies. We all went off pretty much empty-handed.
But definitely got well-dressed ladies. *cough!*
Anyway, thanks to this group of people for making the night interesting.
But, now I regret for not showing up as Iron Man, or else I would have gotten myself lots of blind dates with the ladies!
