blood on the dance floor
2005-10-30 07:41:04 ET

Yesterday I a pub called Party Room, they were having a Halloween party, our digital music club's president Spykee is one of the DJs over there. It was my virgin trip to a ¡§dancing¡¨ club, cause I've only been to music lounges before, if music lounges were clubs.....

The trip to there was kind of confusing. I checked the internet for bus routes and figured that I was to take a bus to Ximen elementary school and change buses to my destination, Xing Hua Chung. The party was at 10:30 so I figured that I could leave the house at 9:30 ¡V wrong decision. When I got to Ximen elementary school it was already after ten, and when I checked for the bus sign I found out that the bus I wanted to take had already stopped at ten. So I had to take another bus to the subway station and use the subway to get to that place. But the subway exit is still far from Xing Hua Chung so I had to walk a long way. Mean while my friend Poe called me and told me to take the taxi, cause she's already ahead in line and was about to take the elevator. So I took the taxi and when I got there I saw a very long line, almost circling the mall, and I was pretty glad that I was able to cut in front and didn't have to wait. But when we got to the 12th floor there was another long line, we felt pretty annoyed. Fortunately Poe found a boy she met in school pretty upfront and we were able to cut across the line again. Funny thing is that she hasn't even spoke to the boy before, it takes a lot of courage to ask a semi-stranger for that kind of offer. After the expenses on taxi money and club entrance, I was flat broke.

Anyways we got in the party room and it was as if I've just arrived in hell. Cause the lighting and furnishing was all in devilish red and the waiters and some of the customers were dressed in all kinds of demonic costumes. It's Halloween, of course. The music was pulsing so loud it pierced through my body and made the floors vibrate. I moved towards the bar and ordered a melon flavored cocktail from the cat girl with a cleavage. It tasted far too sweet, like it was trying too hard to cover up the bitterness of alcohol. Our club sat in a booth and for a while we just sipped our drinks and moved within the rhythm. Then Poe and I went down to dance, I felt kind of uneasy at first, but soon I was skanking and stomping down the dance floor, ecstatic joy. After that it was rituals of beer drinking and dancing. It's interesting cause when you drink alcohol and stay put, you feel the blood rising to your cheeks and you get all the symptoms of a typical drunkster, but if you drink beer and dance, the beer doesn't do much to you, cause usually I¡¦m a person who gets drunk within a bottle of smirn of ice (5%), but that night I drank cocktail and lots of beers but still stayed sober, I was amazed myself. Poe got so drunk she started dancing around the booth and eventually collapsed on the sofa. We wanted to stay till it was Spykee's turn at the table but it wasn't till 2:40 did he started and by then we were all sleepy and drunk and tired. So at three me and some club mates that were all heading for Xing Drong left. We took a friend¡¦s car and listened to cantonese pop songs and the rantings about the corruptive law system in Taiwan from a boy in the law department. The driver insisted to send me straight to my apartment, even though it's in a dark alley hard for cars to enter. I went home and managed to avoid bumping into anything, took a shower, massaged my sour feet and went to bed. I thought I'd feel uneasy since I've never been out so late and with so many people I don't know well, so I expected to feel lonely and out of place. But it turned out that when you're dancing and having a good time you rarely notice the time, and people were very friendly so I felt right at home. So instead of a ¡§what am I doing here?¡¨ feeling, it left a warm sensation in me, and I slept with a smile on my face.

Yes, money was the issue when we returned latter
$10 a piece or $30 between three poor people was too much to ask

2005-10-30 18:34:40 ET

yeah, it's the type of place you might want to go just once a month or something.....
