Re-Visit: Guinness' St. Patrick

Okay, so my exams are finally over. What a relieve. I was disappointed with todays paper though, I was prepared for it. I knew how to do 90% of the paper but I  was careless in pressing the calculator buttons for one super tedious working. I did not have the time to re-check and re-do, I panicked, and started scribbling my answers and that is the root of my disappointment. I really could get a solid A. It is very very unfortunate that I was careless. high...

Anyway, since I have some free time I want to re-visit a past event I attended. Not to mention an AWESOME one. The Guinness' St.Patrick's Day celebration in 1U. It was special in a certain kind of way.

There were a lot of green and black balloons put together into shapes of a shamrock, and some abstract design I have no idea what it is. Never the less, it was pretty cool like this one. (psst.. thats me)

  They even have this HUGE black and white balloons forming a pint of Guinness Draught.

Loads of stuff were going on. There were games, food, tattoo painting and even mimes. Lots of mimes =) 
I love mimes XD don't you? 

Another one of my favorites was the fire-eaters. There were 2 of them but this one guy was totally awesome XD

This is one hell of an awesome picture if you ask me. Partly is because I took it =P but mostly, it was the fire. I even took a video of it .

My ultimate destination in this celebration was here...

It was my first time ever attending a stand up comedy event. There were two comedians. One was Douglas Lim, the other... can't remember >.< It was insanely packed and I had to stand the whole time. Nevertheless, I feel it's worth it =D

They were awesome.. REALLY AWESOME!!! 
The night ended pretty early; 11.30pm. Pffffttt... I was hoping to stay on and drink till like 2~3am but they started to pack up and left me hanging. Somehow it felt that way.

Now just as I was leaving, I saw some food stalls lelong'ing foods. I walked up to one stall and suddenly this 'ang mo' (I think he's Irish) smiled at me like I was his long lost friend and asked me if I wanted an oyster. 

I said sure. He pass one to me and OMG!!! It was really good. Let me try explain it in words as best I can. 

It is  salt'ish' with a little lime flavor. When you suck it from the shell, you get that 'sluurp' feel and suddenly, everything is in my mouth. It's chewy and at the same time.. juicy. Very JUICY. 

The best part is when I asked him "How much?" he said, "Don't bother the money". So OMFG!!! It's free too. hahaha 

It's definately something worth experiencing =)
