Tipsy Krissy

07 May 2010

I'll share with you a not-so-secret: one of the things in my Bucket List is to get super drunk. What a thing to aspire for, right? Before you shake your heads in disgust, please know that I do not really drink. During get-togethers with friends, while they were gulping shots after shots of alcohol, I would be in a corner, sipping my Coke or fruit juice while still contributing stories. And then after a few hours, while they were in the toilet, retching out that day's dinner and what-have-you, I will be patting their backs, offering words of comfort and moral support, all the while shaking my head and vowing that will never happen to me.

Never say never. Now that I am in my 20s, I realized I would want to experience what it's like, just once. I want to see for myself what it feels like, just to know why other people want to experience it all the time. I have to make sure that I will be doing it when I am with people I trust though. It almost happened last year when we had a team building at my previous apartment, using one of my teammate's heartbreak as a reason for drinking. I amused them with my drunken state, but I did not get the exact effect I was hoping for as I fell asleep after the 7th glass. 

Last Tuesday we had a team building at Sasha's house. It was actually planned spontaneously unlike the previous team buildings we had. The reason? Well you see, when awesome people are in a team, sometimes one's awesomeness clashes with another person's. Issues arise, some feelings get hurt, and some intentions get misinterpreted. For my team, one of the best ways to sort it out is over some drinks.

(Please note that I am not glorifying alcohol in any way, I am just sharing an experience.) Since I am not a big fan of beer, I suggested that we drink orange laced with vodka since that concoction did not affect me very much when Dane mixed it on our Tranche's anniversary

I'll let the pictures do much of the talking :)

The culprit: orange juice laced with vodka. At times it can also be vodka laced with orange juice :D
Our own version of Screwdriver.

I am so happy that all of us - eleven team members and our Team Leader - was able to come.
Not everyone can be seen in the photo though.

Me and one of my favorite teammates, Frank :)

Still sober :D

TL Jimmy passing me my drink :D

Who the heck applies lipstick while drinking?

Apparently I do so I can smile like this XD

Yeah, I'm already tipsy here. TL Jimmy is taking "blackmail photos" but I couldn't care less. I actually cannot, for the life of me, remember what I was doing here XD

Dane feeds me ice cream because I was already too drunk to feed myself x_x

It was time for Mich to go home. I slept over at Sasha's house and went home in the morning :)

I remember feeling very giddy, and was super giggly that night. I looked like an insanely flirt woman, batting my eyelashes behind my eyeglasses :D No hang-overs though, I even woke up at 5:30am the next day. I'm awesome! :D I was not able to cross off that one item in my Bucket List, but I'm still happy since we were able to iron out the kinks in the team. After all, this might be our last team building together as some people are thinking of transferring to another department. Personally I would not want that to happen, but I cannot stop them from pursuing what they really want. As an awesome teammate, I guess I would just have to support them. :)

Hmm, I wonder when I can cross this item off? :D

*1st, 2nd, 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th photos are from Frank :)


  1. Haha! I love your tipsy picture when you smile like a lunatic, so pretty! Hahaha... (and is looking tipsy, bwahaha)

    I never drunk myself out, lol. I do drink but not to the level I got so drunk I passed out or have a heavy hungover morning after. (lol, it feels funny, I wrote it in my newest blog post, too!), even in the club when my friends had already been too drunk from whatever they drank I still can stand straight and dance dully conscious.

    Wait, even when I'm not drunk my friends always think I do, though, due to my crazy dancing movement, haha...

  2. tell you what? its on my bucket list too. i always have a sip and im like bleurrrrrrggghhhh but one day im getting mad crazy drunk, just for the heck of it.

  3. Fun times! :D I wasnt able to experience "real drunk" way back with my high school friends (maybe because we were all-girls haha!)...that's why i love my Basagan people in college! :D Best to be drunk with people you trust!
    I love the funny pics, so cute sis to apply lipstick pa in the middle of drinking teeeheee!!!!! :D

  4. Slap me a high 5! I get SUPER giggly when drunk. teehee!

  5. LOL ahh you're amazing, love your applying lipstick photo and then your flirtatious smile ;) This is on my bucket list too, not going to lie - I've been a little drunk about twice, thankfully never to throw up level - and I've been much of a drinker, either. Sometimes it's fun to just let loose (but responsibly of course). I think you deserve a little but of that kind of fun, and I'm glad your teammates were there with ya even if you couldn't fully cross that item off your list. Hope you have a great weekend, lady!

  6. If ever you really want to do that thing in your bucket list, do it in familiar territories like your home with your family or really close friends so that if ever you do something that you'll regret, you're safe with the thought that you will preserve your dignity. And with that, you'll know your capacity to drink. I don't drink beyond my limit when I go out. It's always important to behave and act like a real lady even when slightly drunk.

    Have a great weekend! xoxo

  7. woweeee are you sure those are the only photos taken that night?? :p hehehehe. one day you will. perhaps when we go for asian bloggers meet up in bali or something!

  8. Ditto what Leah wrote!

    Plus, if you've had a stomach flu with a terrible headache, then you already know what a hangover feels like.

  9. It's not a nice feeling to get super lush! I know. God, I haven't had a hangover for almost 2 years now. The last time I got drunk, I almost puked my guts out. It was horrible. That episode turned me into a sipper. Never again will I let go of my senses over alcohol. No friggin' way.

    However, I understand your desire to experience it at least once. Before you do, make sure you look up instant remedies for hangovers! ;p

  10. I hate hang-overs! grrr! hahaha...:D

  11. If you ever have a case of bad hang over, Berocca proves to be a great remedy :) Always worked for me!

  12. @ Tiara: I don't think I look pretty in those, but thank you haha :D

    @ Manju: Yeah, just for the heck of it! :D

    @ Anagon: Your Basagan pics always look a lot of fun!

    @ Nashe: High five! :D

    @ Nikolett: I feel a LOT better knowing that you guys also have this in your Bucket Lists! :)

    @ Leah: I make sure I am with people I trust when I drink, thank you for the concern :)

    @ Ejannz: Uhh, there may be more photos... Mwahahahaha :D

    @ Rick: Oh, I've never had stomach flu, I hope I never will :)

    @ Johana: Ouch, your description is very graphic, I am now afraid to have a hangover :D

    @ Mich: My lips are sealed :D

    @ Teeyah: Wow, thank you! :)

  13. That smile on the 7th photo is gorgeous. You're really so cute, no wonder people want to be around you all the time, hehe. I know I would, if I lived nearby :P


Comments brighten up my day! Thank you for leaving kind words!
