Night of movie stars


Parties of the music-food-and-drink type are boring. A theme brings in originality to a party and offers a new experience for the participants besides creating lasting memories. 

Five days after the NST (New Straits Times) Annual Awards Night, employees are still talking about the party. The theme was Movie Mania and many went to great lengths to dress up as their favourite movie characters.

Three strong women journalists came dressed as Cleopatra; it was the moment to bring out their inner diva qualities. Others came as Darth Vader, The Thing and Shrek, among others. The seemingly harmless and quiet Ahmad Kushairi let his proverbial hair down and channelled the ghost of P. Ramlee's Abdul Wahub from the famous Malay movie Tiga Abdul.

June is the month for weddings and invitations in my letter box prove this. The popularity of June weddings is a global phenomenon. According to Lesley-Ann Graham, author of WeddingTrix.com, June weddings trace their roots to ancient Rome "when couples would marry in June in observance of Juno, the goddess of marriage". It was thought that the goddess would give her blessing to each married pair. But there are also "practical reasons for getting married in June" such as nice weather and school breaks. June weddings are also fashionable in Malaysia where schools take a short break in June and the half-term holiday allows Malaysian parents to plan for their older children's weddings with a lot less hassle than holding them during non-vacation time. Wedding invitations inundated my mail box this month but I could only attend one. Most painfully, I could not be present at Koh Soo Ling's wedding reception. Soo Ling, if you recall, writes for New Sunda
