SO yeap yeap yeap, managed to get a pass to go. Wasn't quite prepared for it, you know with the theme being gold glam or something along that line.
|le pass is le tres cool. su hitams and emases.|
There, see the gold see the black. Getting something black wasn't the issue, but it was more like practically everyone there might be in black, easy default. Earlier that day, we were at the Total Image 21st Anni thing, so that was half the day gone, and I was already contemplating and planning to go with whatever was in my closet. What I was thinking was my lace bustier, and maybe just a skirt or jeans.
BUT.BUT. We managed to drop by Rara Black. Such a lifesaver! What's Rara Black? Don't worry. I reserved an entire post for them. So that's another click altogether. Anyhoos, as I was saying, we dropped by. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, so I just nosed around the racks while Jin tried on a dress she saw on the website.
Then, Charmaine of Rara Black asked the magic question. And I ended up with :
Ching ching ba-bling
Jin and I decked in RaraBlack :D

You'll see this all over again in another post but never mind that. Guess what was the magic word. Anyway, outfit settled, all set for the night! It was all the way in Sepang, but we managed to get there, after a few hits and misses with the turnings. Fashionably late people who are not VIP have to walk fashionably far. Let's think of it as a really long cat walk, up two flights of monstrously tiny stairs. Honestly, it really wasn't that bad, but I personally feel 4 inch skinny heels, a knee-length pencil skirt and tiny steps can never be best friends unless you're into that kind of thing. Think Sandra Bullock in 'The Proposal'. or just Google images. same difference. I hobbled half way up, then thought " SCREW THIS" and hiked up my skirt. I, hereby, would also like to make a public apology to my shoes for over working them. I is sorries for makes you walks su fars and su march. I is promise to loves yous more.
A gazillion steps (and a bunch of fancy cars) later, was the entrance. which i didn't take any pictures of. yay.
the entrance "ticket" was a cloth band. which i also didn't take any picture of. more yay. Nehoos, INSIDE!
Cue obligatory pic with fancy background which i don't have. one more yay?
Followed by, the star of the party :
Drinks. ugly pics. is sorries. here. have another ugly pic.
Much better? meh. Grabbed a drink each. The bartenders were super friendly and nice. Pro weh!
Then headed to a table in the VIP section. Audrey of www.audreypuiyan.com won the Johnnie Walker facebook contest so she got a table there. CONGRATS and THANKS! Her entourage really looked like they had fun, with the hotel and limo, talk about style~ :) She was nice to let us...more of me really...since she doesn't know me at all... hang out at the table. It really gave me somewhere to go, or I'd be floating aimlessly. *float float float float*
This ees WEE AI PEE taybouw.
I only managed to take pics of the aftermath, cuz phone no can take pics when dark dark. Our go to spot for the event. :) but neh, proof! Facebook winner's table kay! And no, I didn't take a random shot of random people's table.
What cool event is complete without pictures to show for it?
Brace yourself, a barrage of pictures taken by Jason/Felix is coming. (in other words, credit to them la)
With Josh, Jin and two lovely ladies! No, I'm not high.
Caught me mid blink. Better than getting caught in full blink.
The lucky people of the entourage. i.e: Cool people who stayed in a cool hotel and came in a cool limo and let me hang out at their cool table.
Clearer outfit pics. which might be spammed in another post.
With the lovely Audrey
i.e: Winner of the Facebook contest, leader of the cool people in cool hotel and cool limo
Honestly for the first part, I felt kinda lost, wandering around with Jin. It was loud (duh!) so, not the best place to hold conversations. Cue socially awkward penguin. Then...then.... this LIFESAVER came along!
Yay Sharon! and also Darren. Amboi... their names also ber-rhyming. The stuff fun people are made of ;)
Sharon hung out with Jin & I (and darren) and most of the fun happened when ber-chatting and ber-conversing. and.and. and. dance floor.
Nola! Not drunk la! Didn't drink that much D: Even though it was free flow D: and I wasn't driving D: D:
I am a good girl i am! (if you didn't get that, my fair lady reference failed D:) We just had fun dancing to the djs. Met a couple of new people. Super friendly girls! GOGO ORANG SABAH! KORANG BEST BAH!
Also : Bumped into a childhood acquaintance who was also from the Total Image event that afternoon.
Also : Dancing with a random dude (short-lived definitely)
Also : Getting filmed by people with pro looking cameras. Footage will be too retarded to be used for sure.
Also : Missed out on a drama back at the vip table.
Also : Eyeballing this guy (refer to pic below) from the dance floor because he be sooo familiar
oosem poohsem seeing kiat there ;p
All good things must come to an end. So here is...the end.
The aftermath :
View from one spot. Angle #1
View from one spot. Angle #2
And.and.and.and. Guess who I spotted?
Actually spotted him was earlier, but no guts to ask till selepas berakhirnya malam tersebut.
Actually ter-interrupted his conversation with Sharon D: whoopsie badoopsie banyak-banyak sorrie :(
but thank you! ;p
Yay! Tony Eusoff. Always spotting him on local tv.
Most recently and most memorable was on the big screen. I really did like his work in Relationship Status. If you haven't caught it yet... you better find a way to. (sidetrack sikit) it was poignant and relatable. Especially in our era ruled by social media. Maybe I'll blog about that another day. Just.Maybe.
Rosak je gamba D;
They both worked on Relationship Status, with Darren having one ( or two, tak berapa ingat) of his songs in the movie and his name in the credits.GOGO MALAYSIA! :D Support the local industry people!
That basically wrapped up the night. It was cool to know that the organizers encouraged the event-goers who had a little too much (or A LOT TOO MUCH) to take taxis provided outside. They had mineral water at the exits to get people re-hydrated. Although it was up to you to get yourself re-hydrated. or if you're super Malaysian, FREE WATER WEH!
While waiting for our ride, ( no we were not going to hobble back down the million steps,because we will only reach next week if we did) Jin and I attempted to take full outfit shots.
JinYin in her loverly, goldenly Herve Leger bandage dress.
Me! In my berbanyak-banyak gulden bustieh. veet black pencil skirt.
No time for re-takes cuz our ride arrived, so one shot people! not bad for one shot! And that really wrapped up the night :)
Will try to update the photos if i manage to get the proper ones from the photographers.
next up : RARA BLACK!
