Welcome & Going away party
I threw a costume party, themed ‘traditional Asian.’ The purpose of the theme was more to have an excuse to wear fancy Chinese clothes Kana and I bought to attend a friend’s wedding at the end of last year, however it turned out really nicely. Almost everyone came in costume. We had a very nice turn out, lots of talking and drinking and sharing company.
The purpose of the party was a bit more serious. A friend of ours arrived in Brisbane this morning and what better way to catch up with all the friends she hasn’t seen in 9 months than throw a party. Kana and I are due to leave Brisbane on Thursday, as such we wanted to say good bye to everyone, what better way than to throw a party. :p
We even decorated the house, stark black Chinese characters on large white butchers paper, proclaiming to those who can read bad Japanese calligraphy (mine :p) ‘welcome’, ‘see you soon and good luck’ (it’s a lot shorter and only one word in Japanese) and our names. Strung up gold and red shiny ribbon (very Chinese) made some dim sims, spring rolls and anything else that came in the frozen ‘asian banquet’ pack at coles. A massive amount of pizzas were ordered.
There were some awesome looking costumes. I suppose the standout was one of our friends who came as a female or transsexual Thailand hooker. He was very convincing. Everyone looked awesome, soooo many pictures were taken, I will put some on here at a later date.
The sad part of the occasion was that some of the people we were saying goodbye to, we might not get to see again, or at least if we do see them again, it might be years down the track.
See you all soon,
To those we are leaving behind, we will miss you
To those we are about to see, we can’t wait!
To those we haven’t met yet, we can’t imagine :p
