Monash ‘Arabian Nights’ Law Ball


Hello hello! If you follow me on Instagram, you would’ve seen that Ashley and I attended the Law Ball last week.
This was the first time either of us had gone to a such a large ball and we were a little excited but overall, not really sure what to expect from it. I was quite nervous as I didn’t know any of Ashley’s JD Law friends and all the friends I knew who studied Law weren’t attending. I am not ashamed to admit that I followed Ashley around like a little puppy all night!


Unfortunately, we didn’t manage to see any photographers so you can just get my crappy phone photos.
I was pretty disappointed that I couldn’t bring my camera, but my little purse could only hold so much and had to hold something very important!! My emergency flats ahah (which are amazing omg why didn’t I get these earlier)

To be honest though, both of us agreed that this isn’t something we’ll be doing again.
The tickets were $135 per person and really just not worth it. The entire thing felt like a glamorized clubbing event that probably suited first years more? Our apparent ‘two course’ meal was really one course that came about 2 hours after the event started (I was starving lol). And the ‘unlimited drinks’ included champagne, white wine, red wine and carlton draught…. really?? Oh, they also made Sunrises with champagne ..which btw doesn’t taste that great.



My Main – some sort of chicken with mash under? The chicken was incredibly dry but everything tasted okay despite that.


This is a super shit photo but this is literally what they gave for our ‘second course’ dessert. Super wtf. It wasn’t even like I got to keep that entire plate – it was for everyone to share :|

They had two performances, Fire Twirling and Belly Dancers, which probably were entertaining if you could manage to see over the sea of heads. Not gonna lie – I would’ve just preferred a real dessert over this.

Anyway, at about 11.30pm, we all board the party bus which took us to the after party at The Emerson.
Just to clarify – we went from an all dancing club event, to a party bus, to the after party where there was more dancing. Maybe we’re getting too old but we didn’t stay too long at the after party, but rather just went back to Ashley’s to nap!

1At least I managed to get these photobooth pictures haha. Please ignore that there should be a third picture, but we weren’t ready for it so we looked incredibly derpy lolol :D

    Woahhh $135 per person?! Sounds more like the price of a ticket to a concert than a uni ball (where additional costs are needed to be all dressed up and lookin’ fancy) :S I haven’t been to any uni balls ’cause I reckon that it’s going to be like you said, a glamourised clubbing event which isn’t something for me. Based on the Instagram and Snapchat pics I saw, it seemed as though you guys were having a good time :O So if it weren’t for this post, I wouldn’t have known about how it really was for you!! Sorry to hear that you had to wait so long for your food :/

    Your pics look lovely by the way :)
