I came across about Johnson's Serlahkan Keayuanmu contest while stalking via their facebook page last month. I've participated their previous contests (twice) but didn't get selected. Never say never as they say, so i thought why not try another one..3rd time the charm eh? Those who know me well, they also know that I love joining competition from adventurous like the Fear Factor challenge to the pageant liked competition. Yeah my narcissism can be quite annoying and you can roll your eyes all you want, but I love the reward and satisfaction from these anticipation.
I've submitted a photo looking 'demure and soft' and surprisingly I received an email last week that I was one of the 20 shortlisted. But only 10 will be chosen where top 3 will win RM5000!!!, designer dress by Nurita Harith and RM100 worth of Johnson's hamper while the remaining 7 will receive the consolation prize of RM500 and RM100 worth of Johnson's hamper. Last week was probably one of the most stressful phase for me with organizing/preparing huge award night event, my YES4G out of data, lack of sleep etc. But at the same time, i've learned so many valuable lessons and experience.
So this morning, woke up early as I need to be at Boulevard Hotel, Mivalley for the audition. Was anxious and excited at the same time. Some people asked whether I still get nervous for all this...the answer is always Yes..i do. Was glad to meet with fellow contestants these 2 petite mama which i give high regards to. My nervous level was lowered down as I chatted with the both friendly Julia and Yumie. All photos were taken by Julia's husband. thanks for the lovely photos :)

There will be 3 main groups during the audition whereby it was divided into morning, afternoon and evening session. I've replied that I wanted the morning session so that I could just finish it earlier and rest before my lil' cousin, Naveen's birthday party later in the evening. Thankfully the morning session was only 8 of us. So it was quite quick as each candidates was called in to a room where the 3 judges will do a 10-15 minutes of Q&A and a photographer who will be shooting our best demure poses (10 shots).

|ok im going in..wish me luck! hehe|
After about 10 minutes, my interview was over..woahh what a relief! my butterflies in my stomach has also fly away to New York.. hehe. Anyway the key for every interview is just be yourself. By the way, my dress was from a designer named ZENZA..sponsored by B. a little long for me even with that 5 inch heels from Benson Chen but i love it coz it does exudes my feminine
elegantly .oh well self praise is always the best praise!
|walking out feeling so relief!|
Yeay.! result will be out tonite itself either by phone call (for 3 GP) or email for the rest 7 consolation winners. ok here is the deal, to be honest, I never like the idea of being shortlisted. Coz its a 50-50 chances of being rejected / being selected after another round of trying. But I also always believe that if it meant to be, then it will.
