Have traditionally always had a house party and a club party every birthday. Once i celebrated for a week.
In ’07, the club party at Velvet was for a small group of friends – about a dozen. We had 16 jugs of Long Island. Insane.
In ’08, decided to try sumtin different. I had heard of this place called The Zon. It’s some sort of paradise in dat boring state in the south. The one on d way to Singapore.
In The Zon, there’s a hotel, shopping mall, restaurants, bars and clubs (including Modesto’s). All within a square. Near the ocean. The cool part is that it’s completely duty free! So u can go clubbing n buy bottles like shit n still have money to blow. At one of the clubs, two bottles of Jack Daniel’s was $500. These are one-liter babies.
A bucket of five Hoegaardens is like $50. Of course u can buy them retail at the mall too – a bottle is $5, a crate of Hoegaarden is only 80 bucks! Same with Corona.
We had three days in a suite in The Zon. Obviously we went nuts. Suite party, bar party, club party, hotel lounge party, back-of-moving-pick-up-truck party. Big-pimpin, over three superb days. Thanks to my good buddy Paulie that set it up (who’s currently M.I.A.).
There’s actually no need to leave the place for a couple of days – u can just remain in ‘da zone’.
On the final nite, Paulie popped a bottle of champagne in one of the clubs. I actually did a runner. Dat never happens. Was really zoned, so scooted back to d suite before i got killed.
My birthday gift from my bro Khang was a really cool painting of Commander Che. And d rest of d housemates in it, including Homey.
Khang’s got skills. He’s done a painting for everyone in da house for their birthdays. Homey too!
Khang is a graphic artist. Actually was. Just resigned from Bates and a psychotic boss to take up a better job as an art director elsewhere. He’s a freelance painter. If u’d like him to paint u sum shit for yourself or a gift, u can mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org. There’re better views of d pictures here.
