Once again, our Chinese new year party was a fun filled success! First of all, thanks to everyone for joining: threep, kassz, mattie, reacher, mathilya, hegg, insane, henf, vill3m, doozle, and special guests bear and iliquidator.
This time, we assembled at my shiny colorful Eclipse Towers penthouse. While waiting on the guests to arrive, we enjoyed Tracy’s antics in Fame or Shame on the telly. Once all arrived, I showed off my cross dresser’s dressing room. Because of recent renovations, we also measured the size of my shower. However, we then discovered that someone had stolen the crew teddy. Therefore, to drown our sorrow, wine and whiskey came to the rescue. Consequently, an outfit vote followed, brilliantly won by our cutest couple, hegg and mathilya! As usual, this earns them a swag of the week title. But to match the occasion, we renamed it to cutest couple of the week.
Then, we headed off to the pier for a ride in the roller coaster. Unsurprisingly, loving scenes from our couple ensued in the back. Whilst reacher checked for oil leaks on the underside, insane tried to be superman. So, due to numerous violations of the health and safety code (a ticket has been posted with rockstar about this, with video evidence), we had to move on to the playlist.
First, we had a super car race in downtown, where yours truly forgetfully left traffic enabled. Consequently, hilarious crashes ensued. Throughout, insane took an impressive lead, and won the race! To continue, we performed a few rounds of our traditional sumo derby. And, to celebrate, we blasted each other into oblivion in mattie’s rocket massacre at the Maze Bank.
Next, a game of football followed, where doozle managed to perform the best goal of the century. Unfortunately, in the wrong goal. Nevertheless, epic shot! Following next, we did a traditional game of electrified baseball battering. There, with a great performance, reacher took his team to the win. Next, a fun race in lawn mowers created by mathilya followed, impressively won by vill3m! Finally, after an exciting round of bowling, hegg won the playlist, with vill3m in very close 2nd place. Naturally, this earns hegg his first player of the week title! However, we felt that vill3m also deserved something. So, we awared him a recruit of the week title.
As usual, the livestream is on twitch, and you can also enjoy some pictures below. This time, extra thanks go to hegg and insane for providing a few additional snaps.
Once more, thanks again everyone for joining the Chinese new year party. As always, it was really fun, and I look forward to our next event!
Nice shots and we had great fun as always. 😀
Hehe, yup. And again thanks as always for helping out with the pictures, always greatly appreciated!
Dang, I have missed such a great event!
Ay. I hope you can make the next one. Don’t forget to complete the doodle! 🙂
Looks great 🙂 but why is the picture slideshow thingy not working anymore? every picture loads a new page…
There were some issues with jetpack plugin which provided that functionality (and a lot more stuff, most of it bloatware however), so I’ve had to disable it, so the issues are gone and the website is also a bit faster. Sadly the old picture galleries are gone with it too… If you know of a good lightweight gallery plugin for wordpress however, I’d be happy to give it a go.
Aawh that’s a bummer. I might look into it, I’ll get back to you if I find anything.
Yeah, I’ve just reactivated jetpack for now (there were some recent wordpress updates so hopefully the issues have been fixed). I’ve looked around really hard, and sadly there’s no plugin to provide the really good looking carousel that jetpack provided. It’s really the only feature of jetpack that is being used but it still seems to do stuff in the background to slow things down slightly. We’ll see…
