on the boat ready to party

Cant believe what just happened, got invited by the team to watch UNLEASHED live in concert in one of the little island just 25 mins by boat from our resort.  My mind drifted to the years where I spend all my allowances watching concerts and getting pissed while dancing out of tune crazy wet with booze on top of your head... hmmm.. I thought for a moment..wow being in the Maldives, stranded in a tiny paradise island...did I miss anything? let's see!

We have arranged a boat that will take us to Male and from there apparently there were transfers to Kuda Bandos. At 8pm I was getting ready, I didnt know what to expect, this is the first time I'm going with the team on a party like this.

cheers the TANG welcome drinks
  Considering that Maldives is a 100% Muslim country, I knew that there will be no booze., although I must admit that I was hopeful...We head off to Male at 8.30pm, everyone was really excited.  Vivek, Dhaks, Sugi and Me were a bit apprehensive of whats its gonna be like, whether its the same as what we define concerts to be from our past experiences???? Is a big curiosity for all 4 of us. 

When we reached Male, we can already tell that its a huge event, a lot of people at the jetty were in groups.  Some, you can really tell that they are on a party attire, some casual and some looks like they are just lounging in their balcony...As I look around, there is no sort of party attire. I didnt know if i was over dressed or just appropriate, but never mind.  We took another speed boat that took us to Kuda Bandos (little Bandos), it took another 20 mins boat ride to reach.  When we arrived, we saw Junaid who was one of the Security, so he helped us out way pass the line for tickets. Hehehe. Then we went straight to the welcome drink counter - Vivek, Dhaks, Sugi and myself giggled as we head of to get the first drink of the night. Before we sipped we took some photos with the guys and held up our drinks.  All smiles, after the first sip - the smiles fade away! Puta! it was just tang orange on the drinks! I cant believe I am partying with a TANG orange....
