Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

A few weeks back, a few days after the Groove in Motion gig, I attended the official launch of AXE. Ryan from ANK told us about it. He said his friend was one of the organizers, and that there'd be free flow of beer! Plus a lot of hot chicks. Free flow of beer and plenty of chicks? How can you say no? Lol... Joseph and Kai, surprisingly. Joseph headbanged himself to an MC, and Kai didn't come, even though he bragged he would bring 10 Russian girls in. A group of 5 girls get a bottle of either Absolut Vodka, Chivas, gin and tonic or tequila.
Invitation was done through Facebook, where you just registered, and just hoped that they'd send you an invite. Luckily, even though I signed up really late, I got my invite. And joining me were Ryan and his girlfriend, their friend Aaron, Radius and I. I also bumped into my cousin Terry there. Long time no see!
The event was held in Euphoria aka Ministry of Sound KL. And I'm in this picture! Although I'm tiny. I'm the guy directly below the centre of the disco ball. I think you can tell its me.
Free flow of Carlsberg beer. I only managed to drink 6 glasses in 2 hours, 'cause the bar was so crowded. It ran out after that. Geez. So fast.
A few of the AXE girls. AXE is a type of deodorant that brands itself as a scent that's irresistable to women. They launched 5 scents that night. My favourite was perhaps the chocolate scent. The girls would go around spraying the scent on some paper, to let people sniff it. I was approached by 4 different scent girls (all with different scents), and yeah, chocolate was the nicest.
A few more of the AXE girls. One girl sprayed some scent for me. Normally they'd walk away after a brief comment or what, but this particular girl hung around my table. I was curious, so I brought up some small talk. I said "So you'll be spraying all night?" Very poor choice of words.
Throughout the event, Serena C would emcee for a while, and then a group of dancers would pick out one guy and drag him in the midst of him, dancing around him, lap dancing and kissing his chest. All to bring across the image of AXE as irresistable to women. 5 scents meant 5 themes and 5 groups of girls. And 5 very lucky guys.
The first one! I mentioned lap dancing and stuff right? I don't know what you call this. Head dancing? Lucky guy, that girl in red was the prettiest and hottest girl out of all the dancers the entire night. And the most risque.
Nurse theme. Their costumes were probably the sexiest, although the girls weren't the hottest. This guy got a kiss on his chest. Yeah, that's real lipstick from one of the nurses lips.
And I mentioned Ryan's friend was one of the organizers right? Well, he set up Ryan to be one of the lucky victims as well!
Don't forget that Ryan's girlfriend was there too! She was cool with it though. Pretty awesome of her to be alright seeing all the chicks dance around her boyfriend.
Did I mention that she approved it to Ryan's friend beforehand?
They even poured chocolate syrup on him. The only one to get that privilege.
I had to help him clean up afterward -.-.
I nearly ended up being a victim. For an African themed dance, me and Radius were watching behind an Italian Iranian who just happened to walk in front of me. Then as the girls were getting nearer, they grabbed the Italian just as he stopped in front of me! LOL! I don't know whether that was a waste, or a relief. Tempting on one side, embarassment from the other.
Afterward some guys in uniforms came out and start shouting and yelling. They gathered up all the Malays (or people that would typically look like Muslims) and the music stopped. The lights stopped flashing, and a lone man stood in the middle shouting to everybody. A raid?! I was like "Wow, what a way to spoil a launch event". Then later on I found out it was a prank. Although pulled off pretty well.
These girls came up on stage afterward. That's why I knew it was a prank. Lmao. Police chicks!
Towards the end of the night, they announced that an iPod Touch was up for grabs. However, the only people eligible were the guys who were the girl's victims. Turns out that they recorded every victim, and played it out on the screen. The winner would be the one with the best crowd reaction, depending on the victim's expressions and reactions during the dance. At this point, I wanted to be victimized! An iPod Touch!
Ryan left early with his girlfriend and friends, leaving only Radius and I. So unluckily for Ryan, he didn't get to compete for the iPod. Worst thing is, he had the best crowd reaction! Dang! I told him and he was like so regretful! LOL!
So since he wasn't there, the remaining guys were determined by crowd reactions. It ended up being a draw between two guys. The nurse victim, and another guy. To determine the winner, both had to do a striptease on the stage.
I don't need to tell you that this guy won.
The night was your everyday clubbing night interspersed with the emcee-ing of Serena C and the themed dances. So while there wasn't any lucky victim or emcee-ing, it was the girls who used the stage.
And this particular group got my attention. Especially the one in the middle.
I actually never got a good look at her face that night itself. When I googled the event to see the feedback and pictures, I realized I wasn't the only one who took notice of this group. They were perhaps the highlight of the general public.
Well. Hot, but not as pretty as I imagined. She did seem prettier in person. I guess the lights made it harder to see.
And the finale of the AXE dancers. One girl from each theme.
I like the teacher-theme dancer here the best. I don't know why. And no, it's got nothing to do with Ms Koeh being a teacher -.-.
A final look at my thought-was-prettier-but-still-hot-body girl.
