Asia's Next Top Model Finale Party- Season 1

The season might be over but the fame has just begun. all of us know the winner was finally announced in the much anticipated reality show and I was one of the lucky people that managed to attend the Asia's Next Top Model Finale Party on 15 February 2013 held at Stage 28, Universal Studios Singapore! It was night full of gorgeous models, glitz, glamour and yes you got it right ..Gold like the royalty only my duke was no where to be seen.  Thanks to Playboy Fragrance as they picked my entry and there I was with my mum experiencing like a true VIP diva. From being chauffeur from my HOME in KL to KLIA and upon touchdown Singapore Airport another driver pick us up to our hotel which was the luxury Marriot Hotel. woots! 

Orait here's the deal, some of you might be asking how do I received the invitation right? was from a  slogan contest I've joined early this year. The prizes was simply hard to resist! There are :

A pair of VIP passes to catch Asia's Next Top Model Finale Party. 2 return air tickets (KL-Singapore-KL), 3D2N stay for two at Resorts World Sentosa Singapore (or similar-I got to stay at Marriot which was even better! hehe) , a pair of passes to Universal Studios Singapore + half-day sightseeing tour! On top of that, USD400 cash!!! and a VIP dinner for two at an acclaimed restaurant. Sounds unbelievable right? Last but not least, they will also provide a makeover for two to attend the Asia's Next Top Model Finale Party! 

Wow that's was mouthful and it was one of the key point why I quickly when to the nearest Guardian and get myself a perfume (by the way their fragrances are nice as they are not too strong for my liking) worth RM35 and start cracking my brain for a slogan. Lucky strike when I finally received a call from this friendly lady, Ms Evonne Tan that I've won!! 

So finally the day arrived (just 1 day after coming back from Cameron for a CNY family trip), our Airport Limo arrived earlier than scheduled. Pretty excited! Reached KLIA and met with the representative from StarAsia (M) Sdn Bhd, the friendly Evonne  Tan and Ken Liew. Thank you for your hospitality and ensure our stay and trip are in order plus helping me snapping some photos with the models during that finale party. Hrrmm..maybe it's about time for me to 'win' a new camera..LOL 

Okay I will separate my DAY 1 blog in another post, this post will be mainly on the ANTM Finale Party. It was Day 2 about 3pm (after spending half day at Universal Studis Singapore), after freshen up, we went to the designated room in one of the floor at Marriot for our makeover. Hair and make up was done and finally we are ready  for tonite event!

Black and white..its like YIN and YANG :P 
Singaporen rep from STarAsia are Suzie Ragavan and opps i forgot her name..sorry :( was there to assist us on transportation and logistic to the party.

Then came Nadya Hutagalung, the beauty that also being one of the judges for Asia's Next Top Model Season 1 to announce the winner. It was quite the obvious the competition between the 3 finalists, Jessica Amornkuldilok, Kate Ma and Stephanie Retuya was simply undeniable. I've been rooting Jessica since the final last 4 episodes with her poise, determination and consistency. however Kate Ma is one bubbly girl that simply exude the epitome of model with adventurous appetite. Her large personality simply caught my attention! hahaha However sadly she was not able to attend the gala night due to family issue. 

result is in her hand
Finally the winner was revealed and it was none other than Jessica!! congrats girl. enjoy your new ride and new chapter of life! Bursting of confetti and applause penetrating the hall while all invited guests proceed to mingle around. Met some of the winners from Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines, Taiwan and Indonesia. Cocktail, delicious food, gorgeous people with of course how can I forget, the lovely fragrance of PLAYBOY ignite that lovely evening. Like a scene from a movie and remind me of the party in New York, loving every moment of the limelight here..hehehe

Who will have thought saying YES for a last minute call from Tune Insurance last Wednesday was my first attempt of being the champion at the Go kart track Sepang under Tunetastic race that 21 March 2013! 

The crazy thing about life is when if it is meant for u, then it will no matter what happen. Coz actually to be in the Tunetastic race, one need to be first a hardcore twitter whereby the team they are rooting for is also the most tweeted team that finished the 'online race'. The 3 teams are TeamTune Travel/Peter Miller,CEO of Tune Insurance, TeamTuneFly/Mark LankesterCEO of Tune Hotels, and TeamTune Holiday/Aireen Omar,CEO of AirAsia. Held from 26 Feb 2013-15 March 2013, it was a craze trending virtually. 
the battle of the CEOs
Then 6 finalists from the most tweeted winning team will compete for a Formula 1 Grand Prix experience Go-Kart Showdown race at Sepang International Circuit. TeamTuneFly took the lead so all 6 finalists are chosen from that team. yeay yeay!
yup i was the new finalist..
Actually I was not even the first next finalist, apparently 2 contestants pulled out due to unforeseen circumstances so there's where my name appeared on the next line. Prizes will be forfeited should any of the finalists are not able to make it during the race. So when I received the call while I was in the midst of conducting a training, I quickly jumped in stating that I will attend. Only to realize that I have meetings to attend that day, GULP!

But opportunity like this don't come often, so come Thurday, I went for the 1st meeting that morning but excuse myself for the afternoon one and off to Tune Hotel, Kota Damansara!. yeah like premium rush (minus the bike), changed to sports attire and waiting for the Tune Troopers to chauffeur us to Sepang International Circuit (SIC) for the ultimate Tunetastic showdown..woots! excited wei! So while waiting, I checked in first the room they provided for 3D2N in conjunction with the F1 Sepang 2013.  Clean room and they also provided the air-cond, tv and towels..yeay!
Tune Hotel offers clean rooms with comfy beds and pillows. Thar's what I like most!
The Tune Troopers and other finalists, Annabelle, Basil, Hsiao Wei were already there. Yee Pee and Kenlli Lim will meet us there straight. Finally at about 1.45pm, the person in charge from an event company, Isabelle came for a short briefing before all of us head to Sepang. It was certainly nice to have a personal driver! Thank you Tune Insurance! how thoughtful. 
awesome cars for 3 days for the finalists! :) :)  My driver was Bao. very humble and helpful. 
Upon arrival, we were welcomed by this awesome lady, Mawarni Adam McCalman (Head of Marketing of Tune Insurance). All 6 finalists are ready but just as the race about to start, guess what stopped us?? mother nature..yup it rains so heavily that we have to delay the race for almost an hour later. But with the heat fueling the Go-Kart track, at least the rain sort of cools us down. We started with a practice session. Followed by Qualifying round for TOP 10 before the final actual race. 
chilling while waiting for the rain to stop. with  Sasitharan and his son, Lim Yee Pee and Peter 
I had so much fun racing that I almost forgot about the danger of not controlling the steering with full grip. But best part of the race was certainly the mud splash on me as I drove closely upon approaching every corner of the track. Not to mention the 180 spins..freaking awesome stunts with adrenaline pumping moment..ahahaha..first time go-karting in Sepang and I will definitely come again!  

I hope they will upload the video footage soon, I wanna keep a copy for myself..Speedy gonzales!! hehe First qualifying round, I got 4th placing. That means I managed to proceed to the final. Had a short break and surprise! surprise! The Head of Events & Hospitality of Caterham F1 Team, Cyril Francis showed up with 2 of the their F1 Drivers, Giedo van der Garde & Alexander Rossi (reserve driver)!!! They shared some tips, chatted a bit and group photo session. It was short but certainly inspirational. Giedo started go karting when he was 9. A year later, he was the champion for various championship track. Brilliant. Here wishing Giedo, all the best for the race this 24th March! 
All applause as the F1 Driver Caterham team walked in.
Giedo shared some tips
group photo from Left : Annabelle, Alexander, Giedo, Devi and Kenlli
Group photo with the finalist except Lim Yee Pee as she need to rush for GALA night at Majestic later that night.
So soon after that the final race started and that is also where I started to feel nervous..But this time I just want to finish the round as soon as possible! So I was pressing the pedal on full force except for each corner where I played with the brakes. After few laps of gripping those steering and burst of  high speed strong wind, finally I managed to finish the race safe and sound. 
go-karting...loving the speed! thanks Aston for this photo
We actually compete with the representative from Tune Hotels, Tune Groups, Tune Insurance, BIG, AirAsia, Hitz Fm Cruisers & bloggers as well. This is to hype up the competition. But only finalist will win the prizes. 
so who will the grand prize winner??
So the result..jeng jeng jeng...from the scoreboard, my name was there as the champion among the finalist! So happy!!! 
tired but super happy!!!  I am fast and furious..hahah
It was thrilling to be the champion! hehe

One for the group! cool experience

Thank you very much Tune Insurance, Air Asia & Tune Hotels for organizing this Tunetastic race.

All other finalists didn't go home empty handed, they won Langkawi trip, Caterham merchandize, 3D2N stay at selected Hotel Stays as well, F1 Hillstand tix and AirAsia -e-gift worth RM100.

Johnson's Serlahkan Keayuanmu

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 :) 
L-R: Yumie, yours truly and Julia. 

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).  
The coordinator explained before entering the room for the whole interview process
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. 

group photo before heading home.
 And guess what?? yours truly just received an email that she got selected as one of the consolation winners. 

On behalf of Johnson’s® Body Care, we are pleased to inform you that you are the Consolation Prize Winner for the above mentioned contest. You have won –
·         RM 500 cash prize.
