Alicia Keys -Set the World on Fire Tour (KL)

Last night was probably one of the highlight in my concert experience life. Yeah...like honestly. It was one the rare moment when I could feel the strong vibe and energy of a true performer. It was amazingly electrifying that even the rain could not tame the heat of the stage at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil. 

The girl that never fail to keep me 'FALLIN' of amazement, the girl that reflect the essence of 'A Woman's Worth', the girl that inspire me every time she rocking her piano effortlessly and 'If I Ain't Got You' it would be probably the worst "Karma' payback ever! And oh yeah, like how I first stepped my feet on the concrete jungle where dreams are made, the streets certainly made me feel brand new oh how I miss NEW YORK. She is the Superwoman, she is certainly The Girl On Fire, she is none other than my music inspiration - give it up for ALICIA KEYS!! and she serenaded all the songs as mentioned above plus --->  No One, Like You'll Never See Me Again, Diary, You Don't Know My Name, Unthinkable, Distance and Time etc. It started at 930pm and ends at 1125pm. 
Backstage..waiting time.
Thank you E! Online & NBC Universal for giving me the privilege to make my dream came true that night! Not only that I managed to score GOLD concert tickets but also MEETING her in person backstage!!! Actually I almost couldn't make it for the Meet & Greet (M&G) session, long story short as I was trapped in a massive traffic, when I suddenly took a risk to just made a de-tour and park the car before deciding to take the Star LRT instead. What a relief that the M&G was 30 minutes behind scheduled..phewwww...rushing and running like mad! So brace yourself..It was like only 20 persons for the M&G which I was one of the lucky person..#blessed. 

And tadaaaaa....Starstrucked! She offered a handshake and we had a brief chat, smile, pose and as I was whisked away by the bodyguard I told her 'Let's set the world on fire tonite Alicia" and she said yeahhh ..i hope you enjoy the show later. AND ENJOY I DID!

OMG..she is gorgeous! Brilliant live vocals performance ever! Her presence oozes great amount of positive energy with her sultry voice and seductive moves on the dance floor was simply overwhelming. She is the perfect epitome of strong, independent, inspirational woman where she also shares some encouragement words of wisdom. " Just listen to your heart and don't ever let anyone pull you down because everyday is a brand new you and let's set the world on fire!" . 

A great entertainer with her piano

This Girl is ON fire!!
Alicia and her dancers
lean body with great moves
deep !
oh my!
capture the moment
I personally love the Brand New Me-fresh and emotionally gripping. And how she replace NY with KL in her Empire State of Mind score. Her concert performance did make me a little teary at one point as I reflect all the great things happening in my life so far. Dare to Dream! :) Her philanthropy activities are also something that made me have a high respect on her. Fans are roaring for more every time she lay her microphone down. Her dancers kept us in up and high spirit of fascination. She got swag and certainly knows how to connect to her fans through her music.

I truly enjoyed her performance and it was certainly one of the best live vocal concert ever. With that I would also like to thanks Judriena and Shreya of NBC Universal, Kavita and the rest crew of PR Worldwide, Danish Ravi for the official photo of Alicia Keys M&G, all staff and management of Mandarin Oriental for making my "Empire state of mind" simply over the top!

DOVE photoshoot

Had the privilege to be featured in September issue of CLEO and WANITA magazine under DOVE Best Friends Forever column with my sista, Moly. The photo-shoot was taken in July 2013 with the friendly team of Unilever, Impact Communications and their appointed photographer. Thank you Watson for the opportunity. 

We arrived early for hair and make up by Ms Cindy. Simply love the result where it was almost natural in color where she enhances our eyes fiercely. We were asked to wear white top as it reflects the purity of Dove. I love their body wash especially with cucumber extracts..mild fragrance but fresh milky like texture. 

It has been a while since my last photo shoot for a magazine and each experience has been wonderfully exciting. However, it was Moly's first experience and I'm sure more to come for her. Born to be a poser, I think we didn't have much issue infact we were having fun while Angie interviewed us on our chemistry and closeness as besties. 
interview time
wandering what she was thinking? what to eat later?
smiley moly


u gotta be tough and love yourself

smile for the camera
time to strangle moly ! haha
how time flies..i still cant imagine my sista is all grown up now

It was also nice to meet Julia and her 2 Bff, Aimi and Fazilah. Thank you for the ride back home. We chatted and snap some more photos like teenage kids preparing for proms. :P 

Wanna to know more about the interview? Check us out at the latest issue of CLEO and WANITA (September 2013 issue). Another memories to be kept, another piece to be cherished.

Jom masak maggi bersama Awal, Scha and Lisa

Beberapa minggu lepas ada citer baik punya...hehehe..well every week pun citer baik kalau kita nakkan ia jadi baik, bukan begitu? Sebagai salah seorang pemenang dalam contest posing bersama maggi kari, selain hadiah hamper maggi saya juga berpeluang untuk menghadiri sesi memasak maggi bersama celebriti tempatan , Awal, Scha and Lisa. 

Yang bestnyer, Scha siap tegur dengan memanggil nama saya..chewah macam bff pulak..:P bukannya apa tapi sebab kami pernah join dalam satu team untuk contest Petronas beberapa bulan lepas. Dan Awal pula sempat tegur " eh asyik semua contest you join eh? " lepas tu pasangan gorjes ni siap suruh join contest terbaru boleh pi Korea under Sen heng..heheh..macam best pulak kalau dpt pi korea dengan dorang. sempoi jer..
With the friendly,  Scha
Anyway sesi memasak yang patut start pukul 2pm terlewat sikit sebab ada pemenang yang tak sampai lagi. Artis pula yang datang awal..best best! ehhe. Chef Muluk jadi pengacara majlis dengan jenaka - lawak ke der? Apa pun sesi memasak ni agak menarik dan mencemaskan. Pemenang dan blogger dibahagikan kepada empat kumpulan di mana setiap kumpulan kena masak dalam masa 2 minit sahaja dengan bahan 'rahsia' yang diberikan. Bahan 'rahsia' tu sebenarnya adalah terdiri daripada ayam, ikan, belut dan udang.  
sementara menunggu bahan 'rahsia' yang akan dimasak
Masih menunggu
Setiap kumpulan bergegas mengambil apa yang perlu dari meja untuk dimasak. Ada yang pakai apron pun tercabut. huhuh
Lisa menolong kami untuk memanaskan kuali
Scha as always -commited on what she does..and not forgetting her sense of humor .always keep everyone smiling
Ini pulak reaksi saya bila disuruh untuk masak dalam masa 2 minit dengan ayam dan bahan-bahan lain yang sewaktu dengannya. Hahah..dah lama tak masak, itu yang kaku jap..hahah..gambar candid diambik oleh staff maggi. lucu pulak.
errr...what's next?
Tapi dengan bantuan team member yang pandai memasak, so kerja pun jadi senang. Selalunya masak mee maggi letak perasa dan mee dalam air mendidih jer..tapi ini ada banyak pulak bahan-bahan yang ingin dipotong dan dihiris. Siap letak hirisan bunga kantan, cebisan ayam dan sayuran yang lain membuatkan maggi kami sedap dimakan! hehe
masak jangan tak masak.

Akhirnya siap sudah masakan kami...hrmmm baunya pun sedap! Lepas tu, kami pun hiaskan dengan 'merak' yang saya ukir dari terung :) 3 kumpulan yang lain pun finally siap dan hasilnya.jeng jeng jeng..
hrrrmmmm harum sekali!

ini kumpulan kami punya design.
Ini kumpulan Awal

Ini kumpulan dari Scha
Selepas tu, Chek Muluk mencuba semua masakan kami. So far..semua sedap. Actually takde contest pun, saje suka suka..semua pemenang. jadi lepas dah masak, apa lagi menjamu selera lerrr..

Awal suka masak tapi tak suka mengemas--Scha yang bocorkan rahsia..ehehe

Lisa explaining the special dish

Scha cakap dia dah lapar..nak makan boleh?

Bersama Lisa yang suruh duduk sebelah sebab nak chill ...dah letih memasak..huhuhu
Hasil pulangan..yeay! hari yang best. dapat masak dengan Lisa, Scha and Awal serta mencuba resepi baru. Seronok sekali! Terima kasih MAGGI!

Hadiah yang dibawa pulang..bersama signature dari Lisa, Scha, Awal dan Chef Muluk

Mencari Ramli 2 campaign by TM

Its like a scene in the classroom and I will be your teacher today. Yup..so which one of you are asking the following questions, please raise your hands! :P  :
1) WHAT is Mencari Ramli 2 about?
2) WHO is Ramli 2?
3) WHERE is Ramli 2?
4) WHY Ramli 2?
5) HOW to be Ramli 2?

Orait if you are a HUGE football fan then you probably already half way through the answers. However for those who are not but since your curiosity level has rose up so high, then read further. 

1) WHAT is Mencari Ramli 2 about?
Mencari Ramli musim 2
It's the latest campaign by TM following the success of Mencari Ramli 1st Season where the quest to search for the country's most promising football talent. 
Mencari Ramli Season 1 show
The 1st season of Mencari Ramli in 2012 saw 30 young talented footballers from Bukit Jalil Sport School tried to showcase their passion and talent where ultimately only 2 winners were chosen. One were drafted into the Harimau Muda Under-21 team while another finalist landing a stint as a striker in the U.S Arezzo football club Under-17 team in Italy. oh my..what a great once on lifetime opportunity man!
30 aspiring young footballers trying their lifetime opportunity
Mencari Ramli Season ONe finale
Ahmad Izham ,CEO of Media Prima during the MEncari Ramli Season 1
Mencari Ramli 2 is a docu-reality series that is looking for Malaysia's Best Footballer under 16, where they will be sent to Manchester United Soccer School to be trained and groomed to become "Ramli" (who else?) and becoming the next Malaysian football talent. This is a continuous effort in searching talent via series of events at 12 locations across Malaysia. The main objective is to provide a platform for young footballers to realize their football dreams. It is also a campaign to encourage Team Malaysia spirit through this reality show. Expect no drama, as this is serious business and help to raise the standards of our young local football talents. On top of all that, it is also to get parents to discover the potential in their own children and provide a solid support system. The show started on 19 April 2013,Friday at TV3 from 7.30pm-8.00pm. Again, top 30 talents will be selected for the finals, where 2 winners will be chosen by the judges and one through public voting. All in the quest to win the trip to the Manchester United Soccer School and also not forgetting the legendary Old Trafford with a 3 years scholarship to attend Frenz United Football Academy.  

2) WHO is Ramli 2?
Aaahhhaaaa...Ramli is a Malaysian boy below the age of 16 with an extremely skillful talent at playing football. Beside that he is also a team player that committed and have great passion for football. Basically Ramli could be the best goal keeper, defender, midfielder or even the best striker. But most importantly the most talented player. I think RAMLI 2 going to be this cute small built boy but with the biggest dream to the hall of fame.

Haih..Honestly, I was so excited and my enthusiasm level was higher than the tallest mountain about going for the audition until when they decided to search for a boy instead of a girl. So to soothe my disappointment, I decide to show them what I got. Check out the video below: 


Unfortunately my application was rejected but I bet you didn't expect that right? hehehe. Anyway moving forward..

The hopeful that came for the audition
NO pain no gain
Sweat, triumph and determination
show them the skills

4) WHY Ramli 2?
Because they want to create more RAMLI. its like our RAMLY burger with local touch that after sought even after all the fastfood chain mushrooming  c'mon we still crave for that particular Ramly burger coz at the end of the day, its still taste the best with a twist, right? And they need someone to accompany this winners from Season 1.
The lucky devil RAMLI
Manchester United Soccer Schools
another lucky RAMLI..syokness!

5) HOW to be Ramli 2?
Do you have the burning passion towards football? Is your motto in life are eat, sleep and play football? If you could dribble, juggle,  banana kick, scoring the most sway goals, sombrero, step overs or even spinning the football, then I suggest you or someone you know to attend the audition to be the next RAMLI.

I am not only a football fan (particularly  Manchester United) that burn the midnight oil to watch their matches in the wee hours but I consider myself as a self-taught Manchester United football players wannabe. Old Trafford certainly has been in my bucket list so I would like to think that this blogpost is certainly the stairway for me to score a trip to OLD TRAFFORD nevertheless! If only i fit the criteria of a RAMLI, i definitely would have go for the auditions..heeheee 
Give way peeps, I am heading to Old Trafford soon!
