The #TrixhasHipster Party!

Cannot believe that girl is 21.

I was saying hello to this one friend of hers at the party and asked how she got to know Trixha, to which she replied they met in high school. Naturally, I responded with a "wah that's quite a while ago.." but she was like, "mmm not really" and then I remembered Trixha's 21 wtf which meant high school really wasn't that long ago, compared to my relatively advanced aged. Sigh.

Anyways regardless of age, a party is a party and I've been looking forward to this! 。(⌒∇⌒。)

When she first confirmed the theme, Fresh Anne and I were discussing about outfits and gifts and instantly agreed on the one place where we can shop for presents - Publika, the ultimate (mainstream) hipster place hahaha! Once we got that sorted other things just fell into place. On that beautiful Saturday, I successfully made my way to LOKL Coffee Co  @ Jalan Tun HS Lee without getting lost. The rest of the group were going to be late so I proceeded with a solo selfie shoot at the carpark hahahaha just to show off my hipster outfit complete with random temp tattooes teehee that's two acorns, a reindeer with a star and a butterfly. 


Got these beauties from my indie designer friend Smanya, super hipster stuff!




This is the exact moment that I realized how beanies are so awesome to dress up messy hair. Anyways no point hanging around so I went over to the coffee place and my goodness all the hipsters in there! LOKL looks like the perfect place for this party too, definitely a pleasant atmosphere and level up hipster when Trixha brings in some of her personal decorations. Let's take a look around, shall we?


Hipster posters, checked.


Hipster chalkboard, checked.


Hipster coffee labels, checked.


Hipster brick wall, checked.


Hipster old school candy and photo props, checked.


Hipster galaxy cupcakes, checked!


Homemade by Trixha and her friend, no less. 

Never seen a birthday girl so hardworking, and damn that girl OCD. You know she allocated seats for every guest and properly labelled them so things don't get mixed up! Or maybe it's just a system she came up with to put #OffensiveAnne in a corner so nobody's feelings get hurt wtf plus Colleen Fresh and I to serve as a buffer for all the offensive things she could potentially say on that day hahahahah either way, we were seated next to the cupcakes so no complains there. Trixha gave us a load of souvenirs as well! She went to the US for a bit recently and came back with all these goodies for us. Looks, real Harry Potter stamps! The Japanese snacks are extra treats from her transit in Japan because she knows how crazy we get over Kit Kat and Jagabee! Too kind, too kind  ❣◕ ‿ ◕❣ 


There were still people arriving at the time so while waiting for lunch we wrecked havoc at the photo corner for some OOTD shots with the super fun props Trixha have prepared. Special thanks for Colleen for all the great pictures! Clearly most of the pictures here are taken with Anne's camera haha the not-so-nice pictures are from my phone. I'll let you figure out which is which. Pfft. 

Let's enjoy the hipsters overload!

The #Hapsters (sans birthday girl) 




Look damn haps kan ahahaha the behind-the-scenes were hilarious. We knew we wanted this exact effect so we had to exaggerate our actions and laugh ridiculously while making it all look candid. Lots of hardwork there, no joke. People were totally judging lol enough abs-xercise, time to dig in because it's meal time! The one and only reason we put in all effort to get off our beds on a Saturday noon for! 

The calm before the (food) storm


Part of the spread. FOOD IS MAD DELICIOUS.


Two types of desserts served. Now that's my kind of party! 

 

Seriously though. The food was fucking excellent. Either that or we were borderline starving. The salad, as pictured above, were fresh and crisp with chunks of mandarin oranges, cranberries and honey-coated almond slices dressed in a vinaigrette that wasn't too overpowering. In the menu it's called Beautiful Salad hahaha I had two (possibly three, but I'm not confirming this) servings, it was THAT great. The baked/roasted chicken too was tasty and super tender, while the soup...don't know what soup that was but it was close to a minestrone with lots of capsicum and other vegetables thrown in there and by golly that soup was the star of the day #dramatic we had three full bowls wtf yeah, three bowls, loud and proud. The pulled beef mini burgers and pasta were good too. The desserts though - chocolate mousse and creme brulee. Beyond expectations, I particularly enjoyed the creme brulee. The best I've had so far! 

My plate so clean.


Hi Sherlock 


BFF #waitwhat


aaaaaaand it was time to wreck havoc again,  this time with birthday girl Trixha! ♡♡♡ 

 

 

It gets more ridiculous, no thanks to Colleen's encouragement.

 

She even have a customized guestbook complete with stickers for us to write little notes and messages.


and then they made me do this, because I dressed like a hobo wtf

 

Seriously guys!


Nevertheless, homeless people or no homeless people, we had real fun times at the party! It's been AGES since I've been to a birthday party of any kind so that was really really nice plus there were door gifts given out! Candies cupcakes chocolate and all (ノ≧∀≦)ノ It was so fun that the after-party lasted until midnight hahahaha no lah actually everyone had left so Fresh Anne Colleen and I just stayed back at LOKL to chill and complain for the 28523947th time how our stomachs were going to explode. After that we went for yakiniku at Jaya One and coffee plus desserts at The Bee until late into the night with Chee Ching. HAPS BETUL KAN. 

That's why we're the #Hapsters. Good times, good times.


Thanks again Trixha for inviting us to your party. Happy birthday! ♡
