Tuesday Throwback x May '13

I don't exactly know how to begin writing this post. So many things happened within the course of the past 2 months - and I kid you not, so MANY things happened. It was a helluva roller coaster ride ; one that I would wanna be on again ;) Met people from all walks of life, and I cannot be more grateful for all the opportunities that chanced upon me (thank you the Great man up above!) Well, there are some nasty and selfish ones but hey, who am I to judge? Anyway, I'd rather sum them up in pictures because, if I were to talk about each and every one of them ; I reckon it would take a day writing and another to edit. So yup, keeping it short and sweet. 

This was one of those very very rare jobs that you get. And by that, I meant.. hmm, how should I explain. It's like getting a jackpot without even buying the ticket haha. You get the drift? Got a call from the director and BINGO - I got the job, without even casting for it. Very very lucky I would say (saves alot of hassle you know!) And was flown over to Penang two days after the call. Everything happened so quickly - and this was .. 2 months ago? I'd like to think it was my lucky month because.. jobs didn't come as easy after that! (haha). It was a pleasure to finally work with Peter (one of the best directors in town!) and Dennis Lau ( also known as The Violinist). Great people! x 

And then, there was the annual Passion For Fashion. I've got a secret to spill. Attended this party 3 years ago and it was how it all started. Who knew.... that I would actually have the opportunity to be a part of the PFF 2013 - definitely a great experience! Twas also my very very first runway job since my Miss Universe Malaysia days. Oh man, how time flies! Was an honor to be donned in Luve Luxe by Hui Jean & Lexy Lyla by Dawn Yang - loved their collection! xx 

2013, also the year I got my very first acting role *jumps in excitement (besides TV commercials lah - its so different, I swear!) Just a very minor role, as the supporting actress in Episode 7 of WHAT IF (coming soon on 8tv); but it was definitely a great experience! Would like to thank Jehan Miskin for having me - learnt so much from him, definitely one of the most dedicated and creative director I've worked with. Suchitra was also a part of the production - you'll see her quite often in the show ;) The shoot is still ongoing for the rest of the episodes, but I'll keep you guys posted when it's out! Quite excited to watch my part - don't wanna be a spoiler but daym, I've not seen anything less bloody in my life! ;P Stay tuned xx 

Spent most of my weekends with friends & loved one since I'm always away from the family. Cannot imagine life without the joy that these people bring - love em to bits. Exams is just around the corner, so I'll have to cut down on outings and date nights :( You'll probably see more of me in the library for the next couple of weeks. Will be travelling to Krabi and Bali too - beyond stoked! x

I really don't know what's with me and stairs. If you're wondering - yes! I fell again, and yes! the same foot and yes! the stairs again :( This time .. I wouldn't say it's as bad but the impact during the fall was pretty damn bad - went through excruciating pain. Missed a step and somehow sprained my ankle in my 4.5inches heels ; heels survived tho :P I've been having my ankle braces on and hey, I'd like to think its a blessing in disguise. Took advantage of being a temporary handicap .. getting parking spaces has never been easier! :P I should probably keep the braces in my ride for emergency cases, who knows? hah xx 

I have said this many times and I will say it again. I am not a fashionista ( unlike some self-proclaimed ones, no offense - but some really do make me "garu kepalaku"; because self-praise is no praise #justsaying) Anyway! I've been trying to put in a little more effort than usual to dress up a little more and I must admit, it sure feels good to pat on a little make-up once in a while and to walk in heels (though I can no longer walk in em for a good one month now. pfft) . And I am usually the .. shorts and flip-flop girl you see, so it's quite a big deal when I actually do 'not' put on my glasses to uni or anywhere besides attending events/castings. Okaylah, YOLO right? I'll try to dress up a little more from now on :P xx 

May is coming to an end, and June is fast approaching. Wow, it's scary how time flies. It felt like just yesterday when everyone was talking about the apocalypse / the end of the world and now - first half of 2013 is already gone! And what have I done thus far.. how many resolutions have I achieved? It's time for a reality check! 

Anyway, am currently hooked onto these two songs. And to that person who sent me the link of the latter song - "in these promises broken // deep below // each word gets lost in the echo// so one last lie I can see through// THIS TIME I FINALLY LET YOU GO" ..  I have to let you go.. 

So much love xx
