The above is our annual dinner's theme. Many of us had mixed feelings when the theme was announced to us late last year. What we did wrong is that we as a SOD team should have gone to the costume shop and rent a costume each. Last minutely we decided to wear watever we wanted to wear.
I was freaking out when last minutely i heard that everyone are encouraged to wear according to the theme. Initially i wanted to wear a simple black pants with a black blouse. And then i scouted for a red necklace with a red bangle to suit the attire. After buying all the stuff, there was another announcement from he annual dinner n dance committe that we have to wear according to theme or worst come to worst, buy a t-shirt with a superhero logo on it. I would not wanna buy those t-shirt cos i oredi bought the blouse.
I asked a few people for some ideas, including from dearest sweettooth, she did contributed some good ideas. I oso had to thank bee who patiently took me to places where i needed to find my blouse and accessories.....i can never find a patient and obliging bee like u, thanks a million bee.
Then it just strucked me. Since i'm wearing black, i thot why not i become the 'Black Widow'. She's also a superhero figure in the Marvel comic. She's one of The Avenger's team. Since a black widow is also a name for a spider/tarantula, i thot why not i find a spider toy and wear it as a necklace and put in a 'gothic' make-up and be something scarry or villianish, hehe.
And so begin another quest, finding a toy-spider. I'm telling you it was damn hard. Bee took me everywhere, from Tesco, Carrefour, Giant, Parkson, Jusco, Metrojaya, from Subang Jaya to Puchong to KL area, gosh...no luck!! We always think that when you want something so desperately, you will not find it but when you least want it, you'll seen it everywhere. We hunt to all the toy's shops that we could tink of and entered all the toy's section in all hypermarkets and supermarkets but just no luck!! What is so difficult to find a rubber toy spider??
I was in a verge of giving up when i finally found a 'Superman' logo necklace at Sunway Pyramid. Dah purchase pun, then frens told me, try and don't give up. One day before the annual dinner and before having dinner at Tony Roma's, i just browse around the ground floor of the mall when suddenly i saw a pet shop......and suddently there was this lightbulb flashing right in front of my eyes. Straight away enter the shop and asked the shop-assistant, "do you have a toy spider?". He smiled and pointed to a section.....i can tell u dat i was so bloddy happy. It's just what i'm looking for!!! I can't believe it myself but it's there!! It was a fridge magnet and it is the only tarantula left!! Apa lagi cepat-cepatlah grab!! I was so happy i called bee to inform him. Kesian cos in the afternoon he was so tired going to some shops to hunt for it!! Once i reached home, i improvised the fridge magnet spider and made a necklace out of it, wallah, its done!
As usual i and some colleagues have to be in charged of registration again. Bee sent me to Sunway Resort hotel at 5pm. I did my own hair and make-up. Yup, i think i looked wicked! Maybe too gothic-scarry kot. Hmm....memang dah lama teringin nak jadi gothic for one day, hehe.
