Strass Et Paillettes

November 13, 2009

Event : HELP'S ADP AND Mass Comm Annual Ball 2009
Date : 6th November 2009
Venue : Hotel Impiana KLCC.

The moment that all students been waiting for! Tak lain tak bukan, annual dinner untuk kami semua yang penat belajar and buat assignments! A night out for all the students to look as glamorous as the hollywood celebrities and enjoy the occassion! My girls and I made our way to the hotel around 7pm and reached just in time for the ball to start. The theme definitely suit the decorations. There was a red carpet and a nicely done backdrop for the attendees to take lots and lots of photos!

Strass Et Paillettes is a French sentence which means all glitz and glamour. Therefore, Hollywood was brought up and became part of the theme. So it was actually Hollywood glamour la!

Happy sgt to see beautiful girls in pretty dresses and good looking men in suits. It's like, u only see these once a year! That's why I never say no to annual dinners! I love seeing how people dress up, who are their partners, etcetra. You get what I mean la kan! I love classy events, enough said! The annual ball went pefect! Really! PERFECTO! Mark my word! The event was scheduled to be over at 11pm, but it was finished at 10.45pm! Wow! Food was great!! OMG GREAT! There were like about 10 trays of lauk (Malay food), and a corner for desserts AND a corner for appetizers. Oh it was a buffet by the way! I love buffet more than fine dining. Fine dining macam sekat sekat perut, takleh nak tambah sgt! Kalau buffet, jgn ckp la.. 10 round pun kita boleh sapu! The moment the hosts announced that we could eat.. terus I bangun, amik pinggan, cepat cepat beratur!! Sedap semua makanan that night! While we were eating, there were performances by various bands and a slide show of pictures of the students. Funny pics, hahaha. Habis semua orang embarassed gila! Oh the bands were good! SO GOOD! I fell in love with this one band which consist of Indonesian students. Their voice was so beautiful! I was melting and smiling away! PLUS, they sang my favourite songs!! AII!! Memang la! Bertambah cair!!

I was glad to see all my close friends were there! Gayle, Andy, Grace Chin, Grace Wong, Jo Ann, Jia Liang, and Michelle! I think I would just cry if none of them wanted to go to the ball! hehehe. There were lucky draw, but no games, which was good! I mean, I think games is really a waste of time. But of course, an annual ball or prom is not complete without giving out awards and the announcement of prom king and prom queen. Funny awards man! Like :-
  1. Most likely to go home and study after prom.
  2. Most likely to forget what happened on prom night the next morning.
  3. Most likely to start dancing and get the party started.
  4. Most likely to finish all the food at the buffet.
  5. The couple most likely to 'leave prom together.
And guess what.. my best friends Andy and Gayle won the 5th award! hahaahah! They are the sweetest couple in the department! ;) And guess who won the 4th award? U know Mike Campton? Host for 8TV Night Live? haha yeah he's a HELP student by the way! After everything, it was time for the open dancefloor! The DJ that they hired was good!! He played varieties! 80s.. rock.. 70s.. pop.. rock..R&B.. awesome gila!! But the dancefloor was only until 12 am, but the party was not over yet! MALAM MASIH MUDA YA!! An after-party was arranged for the students at one of the famous clubs in KL, which was SPACE. It was my first time clubbing at SPACE and I fell in love with it! Why? Good music, good people (there were hot guys everywhere in the club), good interior, and friendly staff! Mula-mulanya plan nak balik before 1.30 am.. tapi tgk tgk, dok shock dancing and dancing..jam dah pukul 2.30am! haahah Couldn't believe my eyes when I was dancing for 2 hours with my crazy of almost 4-inch heels! Omg. Nuts! But I had fun anyway! Forget the pain! Such a memorable night for me. It might be my last prom here as a HELP student. I MIGHT be leaving to UK for my final year! So that's why that night I was enjoying myself pretty well!! :) Can you believe that the ticket price for the ball was only RM95..including the after-party? SO CHEAP KAN! Especially with the good food and all! Memang berbaloi gila la!! Puas!! Oh additional information for you readers, I burnt a lot of calories that night by those crazy dancing that I did! Feeling agak ringan now ever since that night! But you can't imagine how sore and painful and aching my body was the next day! It was a really awesome night with my friends! :) Oh chop.. u know u know! That night, at the ball, my earrings were being so annoyying! When I wore them at home, it was okay, it was sticking at my ear..but when I reached the hotel, one of em kept falling down and I had to search on the floor like countless times! I bought it for 30 bucks man! :( Sedih btul! End up I bukak terus! Tak tahan! So as u can see in my pictures, my telinga tak glamour malam tuh! Some pics can see my earrings, some pics takde earrings. :( hahahah. Takpe la..rambut I tebal.. sometimes tak nampak pun earrings! hehe.

Jom layan the pictures kalau dah curious sgt kan! hehe >_<

Bersama Tan Sri Jia Liang!

November 09, 2009

I told you before how much I LOVE The All-American Rejects (AAR) right? I met them FACE TO FACE (up close) at Pavilion on this fateful date! Aiysha, Audrey, Amelia and I made our way to Pavilion around 10 am and reached around 10.3o am! AAR was coming at 11.30am! Oh yes, we were an hour ealier cuz we wanted to be at the front of the queue and we managed to do so! Sadly that the meet n greet was only for Digi customers and I pulak didn't bring my digi number! I was so sad and panicked and luckily Amelia got some Digi packs from someone, and she gave one to me. So I showed the pack to the Digi staff and I got a poster and got in the queue! Yay!! DJ Rudy of Hitzfm was entertaining us before AAR came. I met AAR fanclub members too!! Nadeea, Jonatha, Hawa, Farah Hanna, Aida Ireena, Cindy.. who else eh?? I knoe there are more! ahaha. So we all beratur la under the sun and the heat while waiting for AAR darlings to arrive. Around 11.30am, I heard screamings from the other side of the queue. That was DEFINITELY the screamings for AAR! THEY HAD ARRIVED!!!! omg! I screamed and screamed and screamed!!!!!! OMG! LEPAS SEMUA GERAM HA! hahaha. I couldn't believe my eyes that they were there and later I got to go up to the stage for them to to autograph my poster! OMG. I was just so speechless! Waiting waiting for the queue.. finally it was my turn to go up to the stage! OMG. My hands were trembling. My heart was beating to an unusual beat. My palms were sweating. My head was spinning around. My cheecked were flushed! What else? Omg. I had like mixed feelings all over me! Minutes later, I WAS NEAR AAR! LIKE few centimeters near! OMG. I COULD DIE ON THE SPOT. Thank God there were paramedics there ready!! hahah. I was so DAMN HAPPY that I could meet AAR so close face to face, but what dissapointed me that day was the organizer of the event! I think Digi needs to learn more and understand the meaning of MEET N GREET! It was more of like 'SEE AND GO'. You know why.. Okay, fans were allowed to only have their posters signed, nothing else, so.. when we put our posters on the table, there were Digi people handling the posters and guess where the fucked up digi people were standing? IN FRONT OF THE TABLE! WHICH MEANT, IN FRONT OF THE FANS! WTF RITE? They should be standind BEHING the tables so that we could see AAR better!! I was so terkejut when I saw like a bunch of guys in front of me, I thought they were potong queue, tgk tgk they were the crew! They were passing the posters! HELLO! AAR CAN DO IT THEMSELVES LA! THEY ARE FREAKING PROFESSIONALS FOR PETE'S SAKE!!! THEY'VE BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY FOR ABOUT 8 YEARS! wtf man! COME ON DIGI! Chill la!! If they want to help passing the posters pun, pls stand behind the table! NOT IN FRONT OF US! I was looking for my poster.. because it was all mixed up.. tgk tgk I only could take whatever poster yg dah siap sign which was probably not even my poster! ARGH! SERIOUS DISSAPOINTING GILA! And I tak sempat to like have a chat with the band members while they were signing the posters because it was too fast for them! I pity AAR! They couldn't look up much to say hi because too busy signing the posters that kept on coming! Digi seriously should just CHILL! I was so sad that we didn't even allowed cameras on stage! LIKE WTF! I WANT TO RECORD THEM WHILE THEY ARE SIGNING THE POSTERS! ah!!!! But I was bit relieved when Mike looked up to me and smiled and said hi! and He said hi first! yay!! Thank you Mike!! Tyson and Chris looked so confused, while Nick was on his fone while signing. hahahah!

Honestly, this was the worst meet n greet ever! Digi should really learn from this mistake! Everyone was complaning! I heard that someone wrote a letter to Digi! HAHA PADAN MUKA!! What's the whole point of MEET AND GREET if no pictures allowed? FOOL!

Oh well.. eventhough how much Digi sucked in organizing such things, I am greatly thankful to have met AAR right in front of my eyes!! I've been waiting for 8 years man! 8 EFFING YEARS!! And finally the moment came! But kind of sad cuz didn't get ANY pic WITH them :( Oh well, better luck next time Lina! *sobs*

The concert that night WAS GREAT!! I had so much fun! Jumped through the entire night! Sang my heart out and screamed my lungs out without caring about anythingelse! It was heavy rain on the way to the concert, but thank God it was just drizzling during the concert! Anything for AAR MAN through rain and shine! hehe. The crowd was mad, probably the best crowd I've ever been in!! Tyson was SO funny that night! He was wearing a native american mask or hat or whatever and was doing a tribal dance on the stage! hahahah! TYSON, MIKE, NICK, CHRIS.. they were all SO HOT THAT NIGHT! So effing good!! So rocking it!!! So so so too too too damn good! Omg. Im going crazy. Someone campak me to mental hospital now!

Tyson saying hi to the fans!!

Weird sayings as usualy from Ty!

Aiysha darla with her autographed poster!! Mission *kind of* accomplished!

With my lovelies from AAR Fanclub!!

Ty's weird way of saying goodbye! hahah! STILL HOT!!

The LAST picture of them that I managed to snap before they hopped into their vans! :(

Jangan jelesya kawan-kawan! My awesome AAR Tshirt! Credits to Cindy for designing it! :) got our names on it!! WEEHEEE!!

AAR Malaysia! The most active group in AAR official website! We should get an award for this :)

My autographed poster!! It's up on my wall now! :) Yay, I have been dreaming of this for years n yearss!!!!

Aiysha, my lil sis Aainaa, and me at AAR concert on the same night! Look at me.. showing off my AAR shirt! Seriously man, when I arrived, people just looked at my shirt! cewah! They were wondering where did I get it from! haha!

A picture I stole from Mike's twitter *sorry Mike*. 15000 attendees behind him! I was somewhere in the middle. And Mike said that we were their biggest headlining show ever! Woohoo! 15000 people!! It's the same for World Stage, but that was because there were so many bands performing. But this is JUST AAR! WOW!

With all my love, I want to say THANK YOU x1000000000000000000 to AAR for willing to come to Malaysia!! It is a dream come true for me to go your concert! I definitely could die in peace now! :))

Lina aka AAR fan!
