Ah.. attended Rain Bistro's openning last night 11th Nov 2008 with special invitations from no other than our good friend Mr. Marvin.
Anyway these are some of the pictures taken of that night. As I mentioned earlier, I'm not the official photographer for this event hence am a bit more cavalier in taking these shots.. Not much of group shots of other people as its already been taken by the 2 official photographers on site, no need to have 2 of the same pics if you get what I mean.. it'll just be a total waste of my time to begin with.
On first reaching there, little did I know there were food! damn it.. and I already ate..
Ahh.. the registration counter..
Since the two other photographers are flashing here and there, I've decided to go with more natural shots that brings out more of the mood of the place.
There were no shortage of pretty lass trying to push you one step closer into retirement in bankruptsville… tho personally whomever picked their outfit has good taste as it .. well.. made the guys go ga ga over the gals at the same time doesn't look like a slut.. more like a beach outfit..
That night Ardent met up with friends from Embershoppe, Vincent & Chris.. of course the gal below isn't Chris..
And then we met up with some of our entertainer friends.. below is Ibrahim showing his various tricks..
That's Vincent's RM50.. serious dude, I could do magic as well, give me that and I'll transform it to a jug of beer! walla.. now to get myself a top hat, coat and a wand. I'm all set..
Now this was an interesting shot.. I didn't bring my tripod hence I relied quite heavily on the VR of the 18-200mm lens.. the round lights below? those are flashing randomly and only a slow shutter speed can bring it out and bring it out I did.. even manage to get one of the promotion gals as well..
Now the guru in action.. fork bending.. Mamak shops beware, better count your forks when you see this dude at your shop.. or it'll end up as a decorative art like the preceeding photo will illustrate..
See? mamak utensil sculptures..
Decided to head out to see what's going on..
Food.. foood… its obvious that the caterer isn't a photographer since that chef statue is illuminated from down to up, making it as if its possessed.. other than freaky chef statue, its all good..
Another view of the people outside enjoying the buffet..
Ok the next series of shots are of a competition to see who'll win the prize of RM 200.. good fun and games..
Until you get your picture taken by me while doing this..
or this fella..
the same.. but with creative lighting from the top..
and the two finalists.. get to do.. what I'm sure what most boys would have gotten in primary school for misbehaving..
and the winner is..
Ok .. the picture of Chris and Vincent on our way back to our cars..
If you are around that area, Rain Bistro is a nice place to hang out especially after work.. do drop by and say Hi to Marvin the Bar Manager if you get the chance..
Thanks dude for inviting us over..
