"Bistro Pub in Penang"
and attached to it were pictures of girls dancing and going wild in clubs like this
She then asked whether these pics really were from a club in Penang, so to all the readers I have that are from Penang, take a good look at the pictures in the post and tell me if you think it is?
I personally don't think any of them are from Penang except maybe these few
Because at Glo in Penang, as part of a contest, girls sometimes pour water on themselves when dancing on stage and that's the only club in which I've seen that happen.
But the MC behind the girl in this picture doesn't look like the one we're familiar to in Glo.
So why do I not believe that these pictures are from Penang?
Well... okay let me tell you a bit about the clubbing experiences I've had.
In London, we walk into a club with a group of friends and go straight for the bar to down a couple of Tequila Shots.
Then straight to the huge dance floor to dance until the alcohol wears off then we go back to the bar to have another couple of shots (not necessarily Tequila again)... and then back to the dance floor again. So most of the time we have is spent on the dance floor.
In Penang, most of the clubs have most of their space used up for tables and stools and they reserve only a tiny space for the dance floor.
So what happens?
We walk into the crowded club, get a bottle of whiskey and sit on the table.
Then we hold our whiskey glass in our hand and pretend to dance when all we're really doing is wiggling.
That goes the same for almost everyone else in the club. Only few people really dance and those who do dance at the tiny crowded dance floors that we have do the "worm dance"... meaning they wiggle (since that's all they can really do given the space we have).
Which is why in Penang, you'll seldom see things like this
And even more seldom that you see things like this
And almost NEVER do you see things like this
As for this last picture... I'm a little confused at what the woman on the left was doing.
I can't tell if she was high on something... or trying to launch herself into space.
Or maybe it was a combination of both. Maybe she was high enough to suddenly think that
"Hey! Why don't I try to launch myself into space? I've never been to space before".
