I'm a Nervous Wreck...

It's exactly midnight here in Malaysia... It's now Thursday, 21st Jan 2010.

By 7pm on this day, I will be accompanying hubby to a dinner function.

I am so nervous now as it has been some time since I attended a dinner function (other than those held by my previous companies). My last formal dinner function was in December 2008 when I was still at my previous company, and I was about 6 mths pregnant with Ben... and I don't have to worry about getting costumes (they are kinda lenient towards pregnant women I guess...)

I don't do well in socialising... seriously...

I am very very shy when it comes to meeting strangers and people.

I don't mingle around much and I don't drink and I don't smoke. So, what else could I do other than stick close to hubby and close friends / colleagues??

And this year's theme is 'Back to School'...

Grrrrrrr..... reat... I've already managed to borrow a school uniform from hubby's cousin who has just finished her high school. Thank God with this theme I don't have to worry about getting make up and stuff, since, well... yes, I don't do make up as well... I am such a low maintenance woman come to think of it!!!

Anyway, school uniform - check... sling bag (which is actually Ben's old diaper/travel bag) - check... shoes - hmmm... just going to wear my sandals... so shoes - check, books... maybe I should bring some stuff to read... meal plans for Ben - check... hope I didn't miss out anything...

Hmmmm... I hope I get through this dinner smoothly...

Well, I never had a formal dinner, but my fingers are crossed for you and I'm sure you'll be just fine :)

A themed dinner function? That actually sounds like fun and it takes the guess work out of "What am I going to wear?" Have a great time. Please be sure to tell us all about it tomorrow!

Relax, relax...

All ordinary folks. Just prepare yourself for a good laugh, looking at all the old uncle and aunty in school uniforms, haha!

A formal dinner function where people dress up in school uniforms? Sounds more like a clubbing theme! =-P

You never struck me as shy, always touting your poo pictures. ;)
