Man, I went through yesterday like a fucking zombie. That is the last time I go out with Rodney… On a weekday at least. The man refused to go home and I can not just leave a brother hanging in the state that he was in. So instead I decided to meet him in his state. I think I am pissing pure JD now. Once I got there (to his state) we proceeded to bounce to quite few clubs before calling it a morning.
Thursday night was really poppin for some reason. The clubs seemed packed but just as we got to Retro at the Holiday Inn Crown Plaza, there was a police raid. The sons of bitches were making everybody take piss tests! Luckily we were not in the club so we did not get tagged. I had no ID on me and they would have harassed my life. They did detain a few people but the situation was pretty civil. Apart from that the cops also hit Dragon Fly, which is a posh new club also on Jl. Gatot Subroto. There were some people detained there including some Indonesian actress, Ria Irawan. I do not believe any one was busted for possession, just because their piss was tainted. Those people will have to report to a police station 4 times a week for a piss test. How fucking humiliating to have to take a piss test at a night club.
I went to Dragon Fly for the first time last Wednesday. The line to get in was pretty long but thanks to Mashal, we just strolled right in. I found the atmosphere and the crowd to be very pretentious. The place was full of extremely wealthy 30 something’s that really did not interest me. I could smell bullshit in the air. But I am not gonna talk about shit like that cause it is just judgmental and petty. But I find it surprising that the police would actually raid a place like this. Some very influential people frequent this joint and usually money talks out here. Could the police actually not be taking bribes or did Dragon Fly not pay enough? It seems that the new President is actually turning things up a notch, and he is pretty serious about the drugs. Well that’s fine by me as long as he leaves the booze alone.
They have also started to implement some 2am club closing rule. Now this is absolute bull shit. I hate it when the government has to play the parent. For god’s sake, I only ever get to a club at midnight! Bangkok has this rule as well and it really sucks. But where there is a will there is always a way. The whole scene is going to go underground which might result in some really cool clubs. I recall scoping some after hour’s clubs in Bangkok. From out side they look like some deserted house and inside they were just going off with a really hip crowd. An all mixed too like no issues about VIP area’s and class consciousness. It was phat.
So this weekend the plan is to just lay low but who knows. I am always open to interesting options.
