SUM 41 CONCERT 2012!

I must blog about this before I forget because this concert was one of the best concert experiences that I have ever been to!!! I lost hope when I found out it was too late to get the early birds tickets hence, it was pretty expensive and Emily and I were running out of time to even get the tickets before Saturday which was the 14th of April. Suddenly, I saw that my phone had 3 missed calls from Emily so I immediately called her back cause I assumed she had something urgent to tell me but it turned that her sister managed to get us FREE VIP TICKETS TO SUM 41!!! My heart stopped beating for a few seconds then I started getting excited and start imagining the wonderful things that could happen during the concert. XD

I never ever been to any VIP section in concerts, let alone for free! So I am EXTREMELY GRATEFUL to Emily’s sister and her boyfriend for being so kind to us and giving us their tickets! I nearly cried for joy! Another good thing is that food and beverages were provided for the people who has the VIP tickets! FOOD!!! XD
I was already in KLCC around the afternoon because I went to redeem my prize from Tongue In Chic which was a complimentary makeover from Burberry and a special prize! I think I have fallen in love with their products! The products didn’t trigger any sensitivity issues to my skin which was awesome! The guy who did the makeup for me was really nice and informative and the products he used to put on my face so thank you so much to whoever you are, I wish I have gotten your name.

Can’t really see the make-up here but I can tell you that he gave me a natural smokey eye look using brown tones instead of black because he asked me if I would like a natural look or smokey look. I told him I was going to a rock concert but I want something not too over the top so he managed to achieve that for me. 🙂 Really love the lipstick which was called Tea Rose, a very common name for lipsticks cause NYX has a lipstick with the same name, I wonder if the colors are the same? Maybe I can do a comparison someday.

These are the special prizes. Which are samples from their new summer collection. Me like! XD

He applied this makeup base on my face and I can honestly say this is a really good product because it actually gives you a dewy look and it can also be used for highlighting!

 

This is the foundation he used on me which matched my skin tone perfectly .

 

Have not tried out the lip shades yet and the other two are darker toned foundations which they suggested to me to use as a contour.

After getting my makeover, I went to check out the new japanese magazines in Kinokuniya and went to have tea with my family at Starbucks. There was this lady and her daughter in front of me and they were taking their sweet time asking stupid questions about the tumbler when there was already a long queue behind me! Some people are just so inconsiderate. Anyway, after that I went to Pavillion using the newly built bridge which connects from there to KLCC. It was air conditioned and shaded so it was nice but its quite a walk too and a bit confusing cause the signs are not specific enough but I made it there and met Emily there too. Then, we walked to KL Live while using Emily’s recently bought RM10 umbrella cause she said it was too cute to not buy it. LOL

So when we arrived there,there was already a big crowd waiting in line and we couldn’t wait in line because we have to wait for Emily’s sister’s friend to pass us the tickets. Jason, Emily’s sister’s friends came and he was really nice and funny but Emily and I were were beforehand to not stare at him because his girlfriend will kill us but the thing is how can we talk to a person and not look at that person? -_-lll

Well, we actually felt like a VIP because we got the privilege to enter the venue without queuing and since we were early, we picked the best spot which let’s us have the best view of the stage!

 

The spaghetti was so horrible, it was cold and hard and as much as I hate to waste food, I couldn’t finish this but the other finger foods were nice, like the brownies! Too bad I forgotten to take pictures of those.

 

Bunkface! The lead singer’s hair is so ugly omg please change your hair style but I have to admit that he looks better now than before! He gained some weight and muscles so VERY NICE!!!

 

 

Emily and Sabrina who does not own a Facebook account,haha but she’s so nice  and  she also got free tickets from Jason. Yes, they serve booze during the concert which is kinda unexpected! I thought Malaysia would have banned booze in concerts,haha! It was nice to enjoy some Guinness during the concert.

 

OBS also known as One Buck Shot, we were trying to guess who OBS is cause  they wrote that in the brochure instead of the full name so we had like a big ‘OH!!!’ moment there.

 

Waiting for Sum 41.

 

Still waiting after more than 30 minutes.

 

AHHHH!!!!SUM 41!!!!!XD

My love for Sum 41 has grew stronger because they are so friendly to their fans and Derek was so funny on stage because he kept doing those funny poses and he even brought a few fans on stage! Someone even threw a mineral bottle on stage and he didn’t even get angry cause he threw one back to them! XD They played so many of their hit songs, omg I swear I was going to lose my voice from screaming along and I was still coughing!

I feel so nostalgic listening to the songs which I used to sing to when I was still a teen!

Sabrina, Emily, Sabrina’s brother behind there with the tongue haha , Jason, me and  Sabrina’s friend.  Emily and I were like “All hail, Jason!” the entire night cause he was so nice to give us the VIP tickets and he even dropped us back.
Sum 41, even if you came out late (Probably cause they had Sambal Petai a day before which means they probably had diarrhea and they visited Batu Caves that morning too.) WE STILL LOVE YOU!!! PLEASE COME BACK TO MALAYSIA!

Big thanks to Jason because if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have made so many new friends and get a really nice view of Sum 41 and experience the VIP side during a concert too!!! 🙂

Day 1 as one of the Top 20 Roxy Girls

Before we go to that, I was having a night class on last Tuesday when I received an email from a Roxy representative which stated that I was chosen as one of the Top 20 finalist for the Roxy Girl competition (Malaysia leg). I was having a bad day plus I was super exhausted so the email really made my day and I couldn’t stop smiling the entire day! 😀

I was very surprised that I even made it cause there was so many beautiful girls competing and my picture was not the best that I could do and I didn’t get a lot of Facebook ‘Like’ too. I feel so bad for giving so much trouble to the photographer that day cause I was not very good in my poses but she managed to take a good picture of me so kudos to her!:)

So we had a Meet & Greet session on the 15th last Sunday in the Roxy, Pavillion store so that we get to meet the other finalists. We had our hair and make-up done at Snips Academy in BB Plaza plus, were taught on how to catwalk by a professional and lastly we had a photo shoot and video shoot at Zebra Square.

Most of the pictures are taken by Dustyhawk (The minute I saw his business card, I knew he photographs cosplayers cause he has Hatsune Miku on the card and also because I saw his username in the Comic Fiesta forums.) and the Roxy Malaysia photographer who came with us. 🙂

Since I was one of the earliest to arrive, I got a chance to choose the outfit which I was gonna wear for the shoots later so lucky me! XD

The finalist getting briefed about the activities that we will be doing together and also what makes us a Roxy Girl. Spot me in the back.

Catherine is our leader and she’s so nice and caring to all of us!

The turquoise girls! Yasyka, Pui Cheng, Sher Lynn and I.

Group shot with the girls!XD

After our briefing and some pictures, Catherine got us a bus and it brought us to Times Square to visit U-Mobile because U-Mobile is one of our sponsors. On the way there, I spotted a man carrying a bunch of heart-shaped balloons and he was running towards a girl so the first thing that came into my head was “HE’S GOING TO PROPOSE TO HER!!!” so I was like screaming in the bus, “A MAN IS PROPOSING TO HIS GIRLFRIEND OUTSIDE OMG!!!XD” so all the girls saw it too and we all went like “AWWW~~~!!!”. I wish the couple to have a happy life together! 🙂

Nice shot!

Fun shot! XD I bet everyone is curious of what’s inside the goodie bag, so they gave us a cute dragon pendrive which is 8Gigabytes and a diary. After taking pictures at the store, they brought us to Papa John’s for lunch so thank you very much U-Mobile and Roxy!

After lunch,they brought us to BB Plaza to get our hair and make-up done for the photo shoot and video shoot later.

I love Ashley’s hair cause she dip-dyed the ends of her hair red and it looks super nice!

Found out Pottermore was open for registration so I Whatsapp my friends and all of us started playing it.

Catwalk lessons from the pros.

Then they brought us to Zebra Square. We did the video shoot first and it is an individual one so I was the last one to do it and you don’t wanna know what the heck did I do, I didn’t even get to see it so I don’t know if its bad or good.

Man, I look ridiculous here.HAHAHA!

We then got our pictures taken individually so that we can use the nicest picture and make it into an invitation, hence,  my previous blog post.

The outfit that I chose. 🙂
Group shot!

From left: Natasha, Cheryll, Johanna, Fitrah, Cherie, Ashley, Sher Lynn, Yasyka, me, Pui Cheng, Isabelle, Syafinaz, Samantha, Janaliese, Elyna, Cherry and Vian.

I don’t know what on earth was I doing.
Failed jump shot. LOL

Getting ready to go back to Pavillion!

I can’t wait for the fashion show this Sunday! If you all are eager to see us in the flesh then come and support us! 🙂

Nature Republic Liquid Eyeliner

So I am on a hunt to find the best eyeliner that are less then RM50 and which comes from those Korean Beauty Stores like Nature Republic, The Face Shop, and many more. I couldn’t find much reviews of products from those shops online so I thought maybe I should start one. So I did some testing on my hands and this one passed so I got it. Tried the pencil and it was not concentrated or smooth so it’s out.

Goo Hara from Kara.

What made me buy this eyeliner from Nature Republic was because Kara was one of the ambassadors for this brand (Goo Hara was wearing this eyeliner and she looked so glam and I was hoping that it would be good.) and I was running out of liquid eyeliner. They had a 10% discount too and I tested it by rubbing it and by washing my hands so I can conclude that it’s does come off easily when you rub it but it is Waterproof after it’s dried like it claimed to be. It’s RM36 something after the discount.

 

 

It’s not a felt tip but a brush and it glides on really smoothly.

 

 

Notice the difference on my lips? It’s because in the before picture, I was not wearing the Revlon Lip Butter. In this picture, I was wearing it and the color is Peach Parfait, the one Emma Roberts was wearing in the advertisement. 🙂

 

Still have not master the art of applying liquid eyeliner, it took me more than 10 minutes and I had to use an eye make-up remover to make the lines neater. It sort of irritated my eyes too when I tried lining the inner corners of my eyes.

Rating:
Price- 4/10, kind of pricey in my opinion.
Packaging- 6/10, I find it very easy to hold the brush with the handle.
Quality- 7/10, It’s really pigmented black with no glitter and if I compare it to the Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black, this one wins hands down!
Removal- 8/10, If you ran out of eye make-up remover, you could always rub it off or wash it off with warm water.
Staying Power- 8/10, I wore it since 9a.m until 8p.m and it stayed on really well, just that they were a few dropouts throughout the day. Could be from my mascara though?
Will I buy it again- No.

One day, I shall try Hara’s look! Line my eyes with loads of eyeliner and add some falsies too. It’s going to be a busy semester as usual so hopefully I plan my time more wisely so that my blog won’t be neglected. Ok time for bed for me! Night!

Evanescence and Farewell moments

On 23rd February was the last day where I got to hang out with some of the Australians before they leave the next day and also it was the same day as Evanescence’s concert! So I took the train and walked to Pavillion to meet up with some of them but most of them left early cause they have to get ready for the farewell dinner on the same night which I did not go cause I have to go for Evanescence! I was pretty sad that I can’t go for both, if only I can split myself into two and what if Evanescence never came back to Malaysia? Our country already has a bad reputation cause the government just had to bring up some religious crap to prevent people from performing music which has NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION and to make things worst, Erykah Badu had to cancel her concert last minute cause of that.

Anyway, back to the topic! So I was expecting to just walk around on my own since Michael, Jamie and Kenny wanted to get a massage at the J.W Marriot Hotel nearby so I thought I just drop them off over there then I’ll walk on my own. My plan didn’t happened cause they insisted that I join them for the massage too and I told them that I didn’t have enough money cause it costs about RM175 for a 50 minutes massage but Michael was like I’m gonna pay for you so you have to come for the massage! Which made me feel more guilty cause they’re paying again!>_<

All of us chose to get the Malay massage since we’re in Malaysia! Hahaha! Then, they put our phones and wallets into a safety box that will be kept in the counter because the lockers are not super safe. Then Jamie and I was escorted to the ladies side and the guys to the guys side. The staff brought us to the changing rooms with has rows of toilets, showers, lockers and huge mirrors with toiletries, weighing machine and hair dryers. So it was really nice! Inside our lockers there was a bathrobe which was too big for us, a pair of slippers/ tongs, and a bunch of plastic bags.

So Jamie and I were thinking if we should strip everything off or just leave our undies on cause it was our first time going for a body massage. Plus, we were too shy to ask the staff but I did eventually. So keep undies on! After we changed into the bathrobes, we were sent to the lounge to wait while the masseuse gets ready. Even the lounge is so cozy and they have drinks at the side too! I didn’t bring my camera with me so I didn’t take any pictures. We didn’t get a chance to try the jacuzzi though!

Then, we were brought to the massaging room and both of us were in the same room and it was pretty dark and they asked us to lay flat on our front, and the masseuse asked I wanted light or medium pressure. I went for light cause if I went for medium I think I will be bruised all over. I finally got to try those massaging tables where there’s like a little doughnut thing to put your face on it where you see in movies!XD. So Jamie and I were talking a little bit until she heard the guys’ voices next door. Then, we started laughing and then the guys heard us too. Turns out that the room is only separated using a wooden slide partition thingy.

The massage was really nice but when she started massaging my thighs, I wanted to laugh so badly cause it was so ticklish but I managed to not do it because they will push the pressure up and down. 2 days later after the massage, my body ached.

Once we’re done with the massage, they brought us back to the lounge and they gave us Ginger tea.  I hate ginger but the tea was really refreshing after the massage. After tea, we walked back to the changing rooms and Jamie said she really liked the tongs and she wished she could keep them, so I just randomly said, then hide it in your bag or something. She did and she took my pair too! LOL.

The boys paid for our massages apparently cause Kenny is dating Jamie so he paid for her and I guess Michael was being really nice cause it’s kind of like the last moments we may see each other again so he paid for mine. Add more guilt to me! They took a taxi back and I was alone walking around Pavillion, Lot 10 and Sungei Wang. I had dinner at Lot 10 in the food court and had the famous beef ball noodles cause my friend is working there and he gave me a discount too cause his boss is not there. It was a really good discount until I thought my eyes have gone cuckoo. He was shocked that I was walking around alone, dude can’t a girl walk around alone? Of course it’s pretty dangerous too but my go to way of avoiding attention is to not make eye contact with anyone. After dinner, I went to Sungei Wang to get some souvenirs for the Australians.

Then I had some stupid moments with a bunch of douchebags which I will not state here cause they don’t deserve it, can’t believe I even had the slightest trust on them. So thanks to them, I was rushing to the concert venue cause I was almost late and Emily was waiting for me but I luckily reached KL Live on time. A few minutes later after we got it, they started playing! Amy is so pretty, sweet and her voice is like O_O, MINDBLOWING!!! I didn’t get to do much jumping cause I was carrying the souvenirs that I bought and I was tired from the walking and Emily was tired too so we just did a little head banging and screaming and tip toeing. I really suggest the concert organizers to make people line up according to height so that short people like us can actually get a good view.

I need a better camera especially for concerts.

 

Me and Emily after the concert!:)

I am glad I did not miss this concert cause Evanescence not only sang their new stuff but a lot of their old songs too! Famous ones like ‘Bring Me To Life’, ‘Call Me When You’re Sober’, ‘Lithium'(I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN SHE SANG THIS!I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SONG!),’My Immortal’ and a few more! She ended with ‘My Immortal’ and after the song the drummer threw his cymbals or however you call that yellow disc in a drum set to the audience. Emily and I thought if he ever threw that thing our way, the first thing we would do is RUN cause don’t you think that thing can actually hurt someone of you threw it really hard. Anyway, it was a nice day and I really hope Evanescence comes back to Malaysia soon!
