I didn't exactly go into prom with high expectations for it to be an amazing night where I would dance like a wild person. I also didn't go in expecting myself to win prizes such as "Prom Queen" or "Best Dressed".
All I wanted was a simple evening where I can eat something good and take some nice pictures with my friends. I got... none of that, reeeally.
Basically, prom happened at The Venetian Banquet Hall & Hospitality Centre.
For me, the best part of the evening was taking booth pictures with my friends. At prom, they had a little booth where people can go in and take a slip of 4 photos. I'm sure everyone's seen those type of machines before. I took 4 slips of photos, but I feel like it just wasn't enough! I am so sure that some people over-abused the machine and took so many slips that they had to shut down the machine early on in the evening.
Other than that, I didn't really take much photos with anyone. I think in total, I took about 20 pictures? Boo.
Another good thing was the fact that the hall was decorated really nicely.

If you can't already tell by the Eiffel Towers on the tables, the theme of Prom was "Midnight in Paris" which I also thought was really classy and beautiful.
In terms of food? It was kind of meh. The first thing they served was salad.
I don't know if this is some sort of procedure where all meals have to start with salads, but oh dear...
I hate salads. Unless there's a whole lot of good dressing, I'm probably not gonna be eating it.
Taken from fishandchip's point of view (I lost my photo of the food):
|Salad - First dish (I rate it a 1/10)|
|Pasta - Second dish (I rate it a 6/10)|
Next, came chicken stuffed with cheese and spinach with broccoli, cauliflower, red pepper, and two small ass pieces of potato.
|Chicken - Third dish (I rate it a 7.5/10)|
|Ice cream crepe - Dessert (I rate it a 8.5/10)|
That was about it. They ended up also having waffles, but since I would have had to move my lazy ass to get it, I decided I was safer just sitting down and watching people dance.
Overall, I don't regret going to prom. I definitely do agree that it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and people should definitely not miss out on it!
Although I wish I was able to have more fun, prom was still okay. Maybe I'll have more fun at graduation! :)
