February 2014 - Guinness Record Break: The biggest blind date
For once in my life, I can say I broke a Guinness record for participating to the biggest blind date organised in the world (with 700 other people too!). And I have to admit, there is a valid reason why Sydney is renown to have a shortage of suitable men because the event was sold out for the ladies… But not the men! I attended the event with two other friends at the Sydney Opera House, and the rule was that you had to stick to your allocated date in a dedicated area for a minimum of one hour (Duh! That’s long). So how did go? Drumroll…… My 1st friend came to her zone and texted us ‘Too many ugly people. I’m out of here’ (Well true, I have to admit that 90% of the Sydney Opera staff was more attractive than 75% of the attendance). My 2nd friend got matched to one of her exes (What are the chances?? Or are we already going all circle in this city?). And me? … I got stood up ! No date at all !! At a staggering $98 the ticket, including an all-you-can-drink bar and limited supplies of two-hats canapés from Aria, it really confirms the myth that Sydney has too many single women, and it can now brag about breaking not only the record of the biggest blind date, but also the record of the highest number of single drunk women in one place.
