CFAL 2018: Beach Party

CFAL 2018 Day 1 Beach

TH exceeded his reputation as the host with the most by putting together a beach party for more than fifty people on Saturday evening.

The ball started rolling with a coach ride from the Tien Hotel to Tanjung Tokong.

The back of the coach was reserved for Millenials.  One uncle didn’t get the message.

This uncle is lucky he was at the beach party at all.

Ralf slept through the 4.15pm coach departure time.  Which was bad enough.  Worse was that none of us realized that Ralf wasn’t in the coach until we were almost at Tanjung Tokong.  Serrena saved Ralf’s evening by getting him from the hotel and driving him to the party.

When we got to the beach the whole roast lamb still needed a few more turns on the spit.  So we took group photographs. and got stuck into the beers and soft drinks.

Some of us couldn’t resist pinching food that was already on the buffet table before the dinner bell rang.  Which we got told off for.  Oh well.  We were starving!

Once that dinner bell did ring, the food kept coming and coming.  The aforementioned spit-roasted lamb, fried meehoon, battered squid, fried fish, steamed prawns, crabs, salad, wedge-cut fries, a variety of local cakes, curry puffs and fruit skewers.  We weren’t starving anymore.

Some of the R@SKLs passed the time waiting for dinner by opening up a gambling table.  The action was serious enough that some of the players didn’t bother with dinner.  The fewer distractions the better apparently.

The PKKT crew were invited.  It was nice to see them enjoying themselves after working so hard for us on the roads.

Only one of these guys can sing.

Bring on the music at any party and the dancing starts.

Thank you TH and Serrena for putting together a wonderful evening.  I wonder how you will top this next year?  Hint hint!!

The beach party wound down at 9.00pm or so.  Some R@SKLs went to bed.  And some R@SKLs went out for durians.

Guess which R@SKL didn’t wake up in time for the CFAL Round Island ride?
