CODE FRIDAY: In Control with Pernod Ricard.

Monday, October 10, 2011

So last week, I got my supercar office lady tush down to KL after work to support something I believe in.

So much so I even pledged to it..

Photobucket

Gotta put your money where your mouth is!
And in my case, it's my name.

Photobucket

It takes effort to be part of a cause bigger than yourself...

Photobucket

...to get people to watch and say,'Hey, why aren't we doing this already?'

Photobucket

And if that isn't worth sitting in KL jam after work hours, I don't know what is :)

So exactly what is this sudden pledging about at the first CODE FRIDAY event?
Well, I'd start after offering you something to drink..

Photobucket

But only if you promise not to drink and drive!!

Photobucket

LOL.
I was at PERNOD RICARD Malaysia 'Be In Control. If You Drink Don't Drive' campaign launched as part of their global Responsible Drinking movement.

And I get it, people tend to underplay drinking and driving because most people drink to forget responsibilities. However, you wouldn't believe to stress the point at this launch, they were NOT serving alcohol
:(((((((((((((
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
Well, to teach hard core drinkers like me a lesson *pouts*

On the bright side, there was lots of nips from La Bodega to soften the blow.

Photobucket

It even came with personal waiters.

Photobucket

Or otherwise known as Sam-Insanity which is self explanatory ;)

So be in control when you drink!
Responsibility sure doesn't sound sexy but you know what's even unsexier?
Losing lives.

It's only a party till somebody gets hurt.
And I know I am not one to say, since I'm known for fish-drinking on weekends.
But remember I NEVER drive and NEVER sit in the car with a drunk driver.

To get us to spread support for this consumer safety campaign, PERNOD RICARD had...

Photobucket

...a booth to get customized pledge shirts!

Photobucket

Inked on the spot by...

Photobucket

PAINTLUST.NET.
Check them out, they are amazingly talented.

Photobucket

Not to mention, aesthetically pleasing ;)
The art and female artists.
Tech blogger/My supposed PEPPERMINT TEA Kaki Vernon Chan seemed to agree!

Photobucket

Paint Lust quickly churned out a piece for me too!

Photobucket

But it just didn't seem right.
I consider myself a mildly hypocritical person at best and even though I was in control then, I generally am not come Friday.
So, I didn't wear it and guess what it got me?

Photobucket
My first MUG SHOT :((
Well, apparently I'm 16 so I blame lack of education on drinking responsibility and youth!


Photobucket

Speaking of 16, I found someone who definitely fits the bill.
But no worries, everyone there was old enough to tip back some shots but it's good to be reminded we best plan our nights ahead in terms of transport.

Or we might just end up here.

Photobucket

Isabelle, Michelle and I rockin' a mock lock up!
Remember kids, lock up ain't the after party.
And I'm pretty sure it doesn't look this glamorous either ;P

So I got Paint Luster Haze to alter my shirt to suit my level of honesty.

Photobucket

I can wear that :)

Photobucket

 I may not be in control after 15 shots but I am responsible enough to plan to have a designated driver date to ferry me home SAFELY. (I know a keeper when I see one)

On sober side note, all of us left after being well entertained by model cum dj Patricia Knudsen! 
Tried to get a good picture of her for U but the DJ console was so highhhhhhhh :(

Photobucket

Which is perfect if you are a club that is centered around live band and great DJ-s.
The event was hosted at new club NEVERLAND which is on Jalan Kia Peng in KL.

Photobucket

Left feeling high on goodwill :)
So if you do drink, make sure you get driven home!

Photobucket

PERNOD RICARD'S 'Code Friday'event aims to promote just that with their global stance to promote 5 I-can't-believe-you-aren't-doing-this-already
