Going GOLD...

It was midnight. MBB and I were at the Goldclass Lounge. It was our first time. We were Goldclass virgins... hehehe.... As we sat down, a lady properly dressed in black and white with a bow to boot, approached us and asked if we were interested in ordering anything from the menu. A scan of the menu set off alarms in my brains.... the prices were exorbitant!! But in our vain attempt to camouflage our Goldclass virginity, I went ahead and ordered.

"Your order will be sent in to you later m'am... the theatre is ready for you... you may enter anytime you want m'am...,"

What on earth am I babbling about you ask?

Last saturday, MBB and I indulged a little.... We decided that after all the fighting we had done earlier in the week, we'd do good to spend some time out together. We went to Border's that evening. I bought Dave Pelzer's trilogy and more Torey Hayden. We were also on the hunt for Nov's issue of the UNITED mag. It is a mystery that the usual mag havens did not have stock of it.

Talking about my fix, I just remembered that I have a considerable number of mags courtesy of my soon-to-be emancipated new mum in confinement friend..... Hmmmm.... when shall i get started on that?

Then we met up with my BIL and his family and had dinner at HabourFront. After that my BIL dropped us off at Great World City. To our Goldclass Lounge. We went to catch Goblet of fire again. That, to begin with is already an indulgence.... but this?


We decided to go GOLDclass!!!! Before going into the theatre, we were ushered into a lounge area where we could sit while waiting for our seats to be ready. There, we could order snacks and drinks. Mind you, they were not your typical popcorn and nachos kind of snack, though those were on the menu too, but they had prawn fritters and jalapeno cheese nibblets and potato wedges. These were served on a glass plate!! We also got cokes and these were served with glass, not cup, but a glass of ice.... and our snacks were served to us. We did not have to carry it ourselves.... Then....

It was like we were in another place. It was sooo ostentatious. But the seats were recliners covered in blue velvet with gold embroidery spelling the words CITIBANK GOLD Class.... Goodness gracious.... Could they possibly be any more gaudy? Each seat even had a blanket! Imagine that.... I felt like I was on a plane..... Of course yours truly quickly whipped out her camera and became shutter happy..... The following is yours truly being completely idiotic.... at the risk of her camera being confiscated....

These pictures are taken as a precautionary measure, just in case I never go Gold again. Seriously, the price was just exorbitant. I mean at $30 a pop? Yupp... that's why the pictures.... All that said, however, it was an experience and it was fun. A form of escapism, you might say. Even my MBB who was vehemently against going Gold enjoyed himself... just look at the picture below..... though one might argue that he looks more constipated than happy.... heheh....


I must say though, the place, the ambience, the comfortable seats, the fantastic service, the yummy jalapeno munchies and not forgetting the blanket, was worth it.... But worthy enough for me to indulge in this again? Hmmm......
