MYSTICAL EVE 2011:White Xmas, Red Hot New Year!

Friday, December 23, 2011



In the matter of hours, I'll be on my way to the airport and Seoul bound for Christmas 2011!
It may start snowing so *fingers crossed* :))

I know I'm going to freeze to death but don't mind the enthusiasm as I haven't seen snow since I was 5!

Since then, the closest I was to cold was in Taipei last year.....


...and Paris at the end of Autumn a lifetime ago.

(Jardin de Luxumberg, Paris)

Not even really cold? I know, right.
So if it does SNOW, I'm psyching myself to keep desperately warm on Christmas eve! :))

Lucky for me I  got some idea's during a Winter Fashion Show for a French Couture House last month.


But no matter how cold it is in the Seoul with possible snow, I can at least anticipate coming back and having a tropically warm and MSYTICAL EVE 2012 on the 31st of December!


And I can give you 5 guarantee's it will be getting hot at the NYE Party at THE STRAND, Kota Damansara.

1. The countdown and party will be hosted by Julie Woon....


2. And also Megan Tan of that Quickie show on Msian TV.


3. If you have yet to see Aerial dancers then know that girls balancing on poles is event entertainment passe. Rope twirling in mid-air is IN.

4. And not forgetting an array of performances, including that of industry chart-toppers, Joe Flizzow and Pop Shuvit!

And also.....

Mizz Nina will be there too!


And if it's possible to blow the kettle even more,
I'll be there with these toasty fellow MHB babes.


and of course your's truly ;)


So hope to see you on the 31st of Dec 2011 and we can kick out the bad and usher in the new 2012 with a BANG amongst a bash worthy of only the most hopeful of us..

Here is a map because The Strand is a relatively new location (Click to Enlarge)


and here is what it looks like at night :)

Sharing My Fishbowl.

Thursday, December 22, 2011

I've been writing so long I sometimes forget how long because I changed my blog site every year until I nestled into Pillowtalkpromises. Though traffic is decent, it's quiet and somehow that's what I prefer; The Fishbowl Life.

Today, I discovered this comment on my 'What's My Age Again' post and found myself not so alone in the waters.

"I remember reading your blog when you were still in high school, and back then, your blog had many haters in the comments and chatbox ( I tried defending you,but that only made them said that you used someone else's name to defend yourself, I'm sorry about that!). Look at where you are now and all those haters are nowhere.All those people that tries to bring you down only made you stronger didnt they? I know you already know this, but, remember, you're doing so much better than a lot of people.You're doing so much better than people older than you tht had more experiences,and I'm only a year younger than you and I'll never achieve what you have achieved, not even half. Back then i already thought that you were very mature for your age, and it is great that you are, look at what you have achieved! You don't have to cry anymore, you are great.It won't be for nothing. It is great that The Rise of the Youth Nation chose you as their speial guest, it is very appropriate, you'll be on" What's My Age Again? Joanne

Thanks Joanne, your comment really takes me back and I'm extremely...touched.
You really made my day :)

It has been a long time, so long I even forget I used to live any differently.
I recall feeling completely alone and convinced myself I was happy that way, waterproof to my surroundings. But I guess I wasn't happy, so unknowingly I let things change.

Hope the rest of you have such heart warming moments of realization, especially in this soft season of togetherness . Just remember that no one can ever be as completely alone as they may sometimes feel.

Snap Your Style: Eranzi.

Tuesday, December 20, 2011


This is one for the girls AND the boys.

I'm not a designer-brand-is-everything sort of person, simply beca76 good taste can't be bought.
But I am big on quality and sometimes the two do meet :)

Which brings me to introduce a new online retail site in town which is on everyones lips (and clicks!)

There are a lot of designer retail and re-sale sites online but frankly, ERANZI is leading the way with a user friendly interface that is up to international shopping standards.


ERANZI carries brands from Balenciaga to Yves Saint Laurent so your Wardrobe Wants will be spoilt for choice!


At now I bring to attention these tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiny details I myself wonder about whilst facing an out of designer shop purchase.

If the bag is authentic, why is it cheaper?

This is what Mabel Kwan, bag lover and one of the owners of ERANZI had to say

"We work with authorised distributors in Europe and at the same time, we wholesale to various countries. We buy in bulk; hence the lower prices compared to retail boutique prices. What this means, of course, is that you can get that Gucci or Balenciaga from the comfort of your own home for a lot less than others are paying!"

And at the end of the day, you can bring your purchase to the actual shop and if you find it is not recognized by them, YOU WILL BE REFUNDED FULLY!

Yay! :)

They are also running an ERANZI Snap Your Style contest on Facebook where you can win up to RM2000.00 credit to buy that bag of your wet wardrobe dreams!


Also make sure to send em' some Love!
A 'Like' for ERANZI's FACEBOOK is a like for being able to buy your own bags ;)

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Not in this dress.



Ok, so it was made for a much shorter girl but guess my client just love em legs!

 Anyhoots, it is from an awesome re-worked site I'm not at liberty to talk about till it launches. 
But I promise you it's lux-fordability at it's best, for a girl who wears something once anyway ;)
Will try to get you reader discounts, ok :)))

 I'm just about to leave work with promise of more work tomorrow.
Wishing you happier holidays than a workaholics!

What's My Age Again?

Friday, December 16, 2011

If something worth having is worth suffering for then I'm on the right track.
Although sometimes, because what you want to attain is so far away,
the Needless aspect often sets in to curdle.
I always try to do my best to be ahead of where I could be.
And looking back on what I give up to get there, it can't be for nothing.
So when I feel unhappy of where I've gotten myself, I have 2 options;


With everything I've done with my years, people often forget how old I really am.
Heck, I forget how I am some days.
After all, I've modeled for 6 years, emcee-d over 40 events in 2 of it, held a full time job social media marketing then continued for a year as a fashion writer all while blogging until I got paid to. Not to mention I self managed all those careers while living out of home the entire time. Work aside, I spent a good amount of the years networking myself into KL's social scene, read a gazillion books and traveled to broaden my perspective while relentlessly put myself out there, heart break after heartbreak, till I found my Ideal life partner.
Now, I've landed on a highly enviable job in the niche of a niche of a niche market.
People tell me that's amazing,
Really amazing, for someone my age,
But to be honest, I feel like I'm struggling,
All 22 years of me.

When you sit in an older person's position, you are expected to know certain older people things.
Like how to read minds of multiple people, none of who really are or want to be in charge of you.
Or to balance being quicker without losing details.
Sometimes I'm expected to assume things because nobody is really telling me anything,
and then I'm told not to assume anything, yet get told I should already know something when I ask because I should have already asked somebody else.
 Then to get apprehended for not knowing what a 28 year old would feels.....unfair.
I definitely do not get the salary of someone older, yet I'm expected to perform as one resulting in the paperwork to my current unhappiness.

I think I have acted my age enough, hiding in the bathroom to cry on one occasion from the stress of being better than the best I can be. But I also deducted this all can't be for nothing.
Thus, I will be faking the professional facade of an older woman who has actually lived long enough to learn all these things I'm expected to know, till I actually do.
Life is unfair so having it unfair too makes me relatively normal in a way.
And since I'm ahead of where I could be and on the right track, why digress?
People have done greater for less.

Then in the middle of the tangled ball of yarn that is my thoughts, it hit's me,
'What is my age, again?'
Well today I'm 22 and in 11 days I'll be 23.
Before we know it, I'll be lying about my age!
So till then I am 22 and very happy with the sacrifices I have made and will continue to make.
Feeling miserable in our decisions can be just a passing cloud on  rainy day and I'm sharing mine for those of you over achievers who are beating themselves up too. You aren't alone and I'll see you at the top someday where we can laugh about it :)
