Cheers to renewed clarity as the Water Dragon reveals what we are made of. 
Happy Lunar New Year my friends!


It's been a good CNY so far and every year I look forward to the festive campaigns that start the holiday nostalgia :)
And When it comes to touching Chinese New Year advertisements,
PETRONAS has been heading the pack year after year.

So, for the majestic year of the Dragon, PETRONAS had their CNY campaign launch, where other than at Galleria Petrosanas

Media attendees getting anxious..

For PETRONAS Senior General Manager of Group Corporate Affairs Division, Dato Mohammad Medan Abdullah, to give the officiating speech!

Photobucket

And with that over, it was time to scream prosperous slogans *Every language counts!* while tossing yee sang high!
Sentimental Chinese Traditions always involve food.


Photobucket

And as a treat and to start the photo-fest, the media were treated to probably their first 'Lion Dance' of the year......
Photobucket

...the ever famous pole-dancing style ;)

This year, PETRONAS is in collaboration with LEICA to for series of videos filmed not only in Malaysia but England, Belgium, India and China as well. 

It is aptly themed 'Coming Home.'

"For centuries, mankind have migrated from one place to another, in hopes of finding better opportunities. But no matter where they are, or how far they have come in life, they will always come home."


If you watched each individual video, you'd cry.
(China video of the Fatherless little boy killed me. I'll link you at the end)
Yet, I'm putting this combined version because it really portrays the very different yet shared experiences so many of us have as we find our own ways to what we hold familiar.

So in conjunction with these series of Chinese New Year adds, PETRONAS is having a 
'REIMAGINING ENERGY PHOTO CONTEST



Reimagining Energy? Hm. What does that bring to mind?
For starters, surviving the 9 hour jam to drive back to your hometown that usually takes 4, the moment before lighting a massive firecracker or your 80 year old granny whipping up a wok-storm are just a few of the ideas I'm willing to share. *Your welcome!*
I'm joining too so whip out your camera's come CNY and get snappin' :)

A MYSTICAL EVE @ Red Carpet Avenue!

Monday, January 16, 2012

[Adv]
I don't know about you, but my new year celebration was a blur of bright lights!
Avoided the ridonkulous KL jam and parked myself at Encorp - Red Carpet Avenue, the new 'IT' spot in Kota Damansara, for their Mystical Eve countdown.

Photobucket

MHB buddies Mei Sze, Me and Miss I-am-the-Witch getting walkered up...

Photobucket

....And we intended to go all the way! ;)

Black Label is a club staple, but when there is an actual occasion (Besides it being Friday), go for Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve.

Click here to get updates on their Johnnie Walker Malaysia page!

But back to the post




The night started early by my standards but boy was it crowded!
Photobucket

There were a ton of performances not to be missed,
And as promised in my teaser post...

Photobucket

Here she is...

Photobucket

...Malaysian pop starlet Mizz Nina.
Too bad Flo Rida or Colby Odonis couldn't stop by to do the songs with her but oh well :)

And not forgetting the 2 8TV Quickie hostesses,
Photobucket

 Julie Hoi and Megan Tan, keeping the stage warmer than it already was.

In between local acts and updates, we were kept in suspense by...

Photobucket

...some lassies suspended in mid air!
Photobucket

Aerial performances are a show stopper.

But really,
Nothing catches me more than....
Photobucket

..This Dimplehead right here!
But that may be a biased opinion :)

Anyhoots, we were bouncing in between the media and VIP boxes at the side of the stage.

Photobucket

But irregardless, we also got to catch...
Photobucket

Malaysian RNB violinist, Dennis Lau and Shawn Lee beat boxing.


Photobucket


And local legends Pop Shuvit rrrrrrrockin'.

Photobucket

Me and  Chammaine

But really, we were all there to camwhore shamelessly in between lapses of sobriety.
#confession.

Photobucket

MHB is growing :)
LIKE Malaysia's Hottest Bloggers FB to stay in touch with all of these blogging babes!

Photobucket

So, as the new year neared....

Photobucket

I made sure I kept my closest within bottle popping reach!

Photobucket

But seriously, it was crazy in the VIP box so we moved up to one of the bars.

Photobucket

It wasn't too hard to find familiar faces.
Hell yea, thats my buddums Architect and Fashion Photog David Yeow and Malaysian Blog Pioneer, Master Marketeer and Pole Diva, Kim Ong!

Photobucket

Can't think of a better place to scream
'HAPPY NEW YONK Y'ALL'

Obviously, the bimbo drunk in me appeared.
And trust the fireworks to get my attention.

Photobucket


Photobucket

Pretty shiny things that make people go 'Wah!'
I like :)

Photobucket

And of course, I got my first kiss of 2012.
Seriosuly girls, I hate to brag but my bf is like super awesome ;)

As it was 12,
It was time to dash...

Photobucket

To the next party of course :)
Was at Garden Residences to go champagne crazy, like last year.


Photobucket

But lets just say the party wasn't meant for too many pictures ;)
Save this one because I heart you.

Photobucket
Me, Erica, Natalia and Ju Nn.

Wait, I'm ENGAGED?

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Ola :)

So last night, amongst the drunken flurry of lights and sounds at the Mystical Eve 2012 Red Carpet Avenue countdown, 3 people excitedly asked me if I was engaged and 2 just hugged me and said 'Congratulations!'

Oh, Happy 2012 by the way!

Anyhoots, I think it started from me Tweet-ing that I got to wear my birthday ring to work for the first time the day before, even though I did not re-size it.

Photobucket


So no, I am still a free agent protracted exclusively to one syndicate and not shackled by a piece of paper just yet :) 


Photobucket


Photobucket


It's a white gold birthday ring Dimps hid and gave me on a frosty morning after carting me to Korea for Christmas.
Yes, I feel as lucky as it sounds.


So, here's to a luckier 2012, Pillowtalkers!
