I may not like res very much most of the time but I have to say formal season is always my favourite time of the year. Girls dress up in their finest dos while the gentlemen get all suave and handsome. My first two years at UCT, I always just assumed that self-catering residences don't have formals. As a result, I was widely surprised when I heard that my res was going to host one. I wasn't going to go initially but so many of my friends were going so I decided that I might as well.
We went to Suikerbossie where we were treated to a three-course meal and a later lively atmosphere filled with laughter, dance and socializing. I can't wait to go to my next res formal next year!
