The soju summer party

When the Fabcasters throw a party, they really know how to throw a party! And it was at the Fabcasters’ summer party that my friend and I found ourselves last Saturday night. Although there had only been two previous Fabcasters’ parties with soju—the Beginnings New Year’s party and Migs’ despidida party—these events have become quite legendary online, all thanks to soju, the famed Korean rice liquor.

Was it fun? Oh yes! Given the choice of partying in Bed or attending a Fabcasters’ Party, I’d definitely choose the latter! I’d love to tell all of the details of last Saturday’s revelry that my drunken mind could remember, but as someone on Twitter said, “what happens in a Fabcasters’ party, stays in a Fabcasters’ Party.” Hehehe. That said, you can get an idea of what transpired from McVie’s post or follow the post-party tweets from the usual suspects on Twitter.

While I know or have met some of the Fabcasters, it was really nice getting to meet all of them. It was also great to finally put a face to several of the blogs I’m following. So, thank you to Migs and AJ for inviting me, thanks to Tony for sort of accompanying me, to CC for not forgetting me, and to McVie for being a gracious host and playing nanny to a bunch of raucous kids. :-)

Good lord, I lost all my grace and poise when I threw up, ahahaha!

I know you and your friend were introduced to me, but in my semi-stupor state of somewhat stressed, with everything in a soju-induced semi-haze, I really don't remember na what you and your friend look like. Which I guess works well with you being Discreet Manila. =)

Thanks for coming! And join us next time.

Most likely I wasn't able to see you at the party. I went out early but it was interesting to have finally met the Discreet Manila in an all-gay party.

Oh yeah, those guys? They're pros at throwing parties. Ask Joel.

When he's already sober.

@john stanley, I think we were introduced. But I'm not sure. hehe

@Ming Meows, you were there? Or maybe I wasn't paying attention. :-p

@McVie, sa uulitin!

@Dhon, very.

@AJ, oo nga. Wa poise talaga; I really can't hold my alcohol. :-P

@Guyrony, I came relatively early so we most likely have seen each other. Hehehe

I left about 10pm. Were you present by then?

Interesting, interesting.

Definitely a great party! Hope there's another one soon.

@Guyrony, I was definitely there before 10. Hmmm, Jamie and Datu left at around that time. Were you the guy who was passing around the shot glass filled with soju? :-)

@Anon, ayon sa Wikipedia, tradisyonal na ginagawa ang soju mula sa bigas. Pamalit lamang ang ibang mga starch tulad ng kamote o patatas. :-)

@JL, well, let's hope Migs comes home again soon since these parties seem to only happen when he's around. :-P
