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. 🙂

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!
