Must say that the organizers did a fine job in getting all the arrangement done with the cake specially made for her. The poem on the cake was written by Jacque himself for this special occasion. Now, what went on that night?
Stephanie and I along with Val went into Salsa Havana around 9.30pm to a quiet place, with only Derek and his ladies as well as Greg around to keep us entertained. Now, as the weekend is also the weekend of the Latin Congress in Port Dickson, 90% of the Salseras and Salseros of the Klang Valley is out of town so leaving Salsa Havana for us to be utilized to the max. With the congress being held elsewhere, one of the thing that went along with Martin (the owner of Salsa Havana) is his huge collection of Latin songs. After doing a quick check on the CDs that is left, I told Greg that, "We better get more CDs in as there’s not enough songs to go around or the crowd’s going to start hearing repeats of songs over and over again throughout the night."
One thing to note, Deejay Xavier and Martin wasn’t around, so Greg as well as some of the staff who knew me told me to take to the Decks and do what I can with the CDs I got. So this is one of the rare nights in Salsa Havana that I didn’t dance a lot as I spend 70% of the time behind the Deejay console getting the songs cued and played depending on the crowd’s mood. To the people who was there that night and didn’t like some of the song selection I came up with, all I can say is … I’m sorry, I can only play with songs that is available to me at that time, if I knew in advance that there’s no deejays and not songs to play, I’d have brought more of my collection to be played there.
Around 11ish, in walks Mr. and Mrs. Lebosse and the guys start to reel Zai to the center of the dance floor with her not knowing what is going on. So with a loud Happy Birthday and a song, she finally realized that we were all there to celebrate her birthday. During her speech, she mentioned that she thought she was there for someone else’s birthday! So Jacque, you did well to pull it off. Up til the final minute she still didn’t know it was her birthday party. So with the cake cutting done with, the Must Have dance with the birthday girl was next, with Jacque having the first dance with her and all the other
hungry wolves guys lining up to have a dance with her as well. 12min 34sec was the time it took Zai to dance with all the men in the club with the final dance being a show-piece of showmanship between JamesQ and Jacque battling it out to get be the last man dancing with Zai.
The dance floor opens up again after that with people dancing the night away until 2am and one by one, couple by couple, the crowd start to thin as people with tired legs start to head on home. I played the last song at 2pm and had my last dance of the night with Zai before packing up and heading home. Tired, legs aching but I had fun. For the people who has not seen me spin before, I hope you guys enjoyed the songs and yes, I don’t like to speak on the mic when I’m deejaying. I rather let the music speak to the crowd and watch people dance to the music I play.
