You all remember Groove blogging about his pal’s passing. Well this past weekend, seeing that he was in town, Groove and I and a couple of friends went to his memorial which was being held in London.
A gathering of family and friends in a London flat by the river, was a good way of remembering and celebrating his life. It was nice to see people come together to remember their friend and family member. After prayers, reading of his Eulogy and a few stories about Groove’s pal, we had something to eat and drink as we mingled amongst each other. I saw a few faces I already knew there.
Later on that night, we decided to head on the Central London. Word of advice, never drive into London, esp. the tourist hotspots like Leicester Square and expect to find parking at midnight. UTASHANGAA!!! Those traffics wardens work round the clock. There is nothing as bad as leaving the club only to find your means of getting home has a YELLOW BOOT. Anyway, we managed to get a parking spot ten minutes walk to the venue. Where did we end up? Moonlighting Nightclub in London’s Soho Area.
I have to say, my first experience in this joint was not at all pleasant, but since I was already there and after the parking incident…….I had to make the most of it and enjoy what was left of the night.
Being a basement joint meant it was going to be stuffy and hot(unbearable). Now it made sense when chics are dressed scantly. Here I was in jeans, boots and a long sleeved shirt. Was I feeling hot…..NO!!! I was really having the time of my life *rolling eyes*! And to think that celebs have rolled in this joint…..TSK TSK TSK!!
Ok….I am sure that most nights are not as bad as my first experience with the joint, but when it comes to recommending it to someone……lets just say I won’t be in a hurry to do so.
Did I mention that at one point when we were dancing, the ceiling was dripping on us?
Anywhoo……at around half past four, we were ready to leave. All sweated out, two bottles of water later and a cool breeze when we reached outside the club, madam was feeling hungry. Now this is where the disadvange of being a teetotaller kicks in……food vendors at that time of the night are basically a no-no. Just in case your are friends with the porcelain furniture at home…..you will have a clear reminder of where you got the food from. Luckily, there were bananas in the car from earlier in the day. Better than nothing I convinced myself as we headed home. As we hit the motorway, there was fog that was so thick that we decided to take a rest in one of the services stations thinking it would have cleared by dawn. We had not choice but to continue our journey in the thickness of it and I was glad that we all got home in one piece.
Sunday, I spent the whole day recovering from a busy Saturday by catching up with my sleep.
I just love this track…..RAH RAH RAH!!!
