I almost finished blogging about this entry and CyberGod (if there's such thing) decided to play a joke on me... The whole entry gone missing including the photos!
I nearly died.
The four letters that best described my (last) Saturday were:
I had to pick up my dad from the hospital at 9.30 am (yes, he's happily watching TV at home now enjoying his one week off from work), make sure everything was okay for him and later rushed down Miri for the prom thing as Bobby's hair cut appointment was scheduled at 2pm.
I started jalan at 11a.m, guess what... I arrived Miri at almost 1.30p.m!!!
The queue was freaking long and I was all alone in the car with zero entertainment. When I looked at the left, all I saw was trees and bushes. Then I turned my head to the right, there..happy family with kids jumping on the couch and parents in front looking impatient or loving couples chit-chatting happily. So sad laaaaa..
I was so frustrated through out the journey and the only way to "lepas my geram" was to honk at idiots who cut queue. I hate people who cut queues!!!
No one, I repeat... NO ONE cut Nonnie's queue!
First was the dress hunting. Then I had to look for matching shoes, accessories and a nice clutch to go with it. And all of them cannot be too exaggerating as I still want to wear them out some time.
Told Bobby I wouldn't spend on a freaking dress that cost RM200 to wear once only. And seriously, what is so fun about shopping? It's so tiring and frustrating for an impatient person such as yours truly.
There, my purple tube dress. I like the color. Black is too common and I'm not adventurous to try out red, pink, yellow, blue, orange, green and brown is ugly.
Too bad it wasn't long enough as I cut them short to play guitar. I stopped 3 weeks of practicing just to grow these nails but still not long enough la...
Earrings: Forgot how many Baht already... But should be less than B$5.00.
Facial wash: B$25.00
Car alarm system: B$215.00!!!!!!!!!!!
Unexpected leh, the thing that cost me the most is my car alarm. I need to leave my car over in Miri so to be safe, I have to had it installed.
But my dress was a good buy. She actually thought it was RM200. It was just simple and gorgeous. (And I can always wear them to who-so-ever's wedding~ No need to waste)
I tried straight hair with that dress but it makes me look like 15 years old and I hate it. Straight hair and purple tube dress just don't work together.
I bought faux lashes to create illusions of me having big kawaii dolly eyes but I chucked them away after 3 minutes of trying.
It's so hard to stick them on my eye lids. I have no talent in dolling up myself seriously...
We got back home (as in Bobby's Miri house) at around 5.00 pm and we're left with an hour to get dressed. One hour for guys are more than enough as they just need to shave, wear the shirt, pant and ties and maybe gel their hair. But not for the ladies okay.
And after one hour of showering, dressing up and struggling with my less than amateur make-up skills, we're ready to go.
So we drove to Gordon's place, left my car there and he gave us a ride to the hotel.
All ready to charm
The theme for that night was
Well, compared to my ITB MRS night this is way much better actually. At least there's more things to see (girls with thick make up and performance on the stage) and slightly better food.
Us at the hotel lobby
Above captions just for fun.
Since it's a "Hollywood" theme, of course we have Red Carpet. Somemore broadcast live for those to see in the ballroom. Can see the organizers really put a lot of effort in it to come up with these ideas.
Our Red Carpet Moment
Bobby's friends were all shocked when seeing him and teased him.
"Aiyaaaa... Bobby it's you! I can't recognized you from the back la. You look so handsome today leh!"
So you can imagined how ugly and shabby this guy was during normal school days with his tee and jeans, somemore don't shave for few days with mustaches long like ambuk.
Gordon said somehow Bobby reminded him of Brad Pitt....
*terkarang... if he Brad Pitt, wa mah Angelina Jolie liao?*
* * * * *
Even the theme was based on Hollywood, but still I felt that I actually walked into a typical Chinese Wedding Dinner.
Okay lah, they're not actually brides and grooms. But the outfits they'd chosen certainly felt like it.
And I saw...
Hmmm... I thought it's a Hollywood night? Or it's actually "Fairy Tale Princess" night?
... I know, I'm very mean.
It's just so nice to look at those girls. They had to walk so careful not to trip and imagine how to go shhh-shhh with that troublesome long dress.
I'm pretty sure if I was wearing those, I had already tripped myself for the 65465 times!
And, one thing I noticed... They didn't wear matching shoes. It's nice on top, but once they pulled their skirts up... ALAMAK.. a black strap slipper.
A friend told me that they actually got a package for it.
RM180 for renting the (wedding) gown, hairdo and makeup included.
Hmm.. maybe that's why their make-up all looked the same with that glittery eye shadows and super stuffs and shiny hair.
Other than people dressing up as if it was their "big day", there're also some beng-bengs cheering and shouting "YAAAAAMMMMMM SEEEEENG!!!" so loudly.
Tell, what is "yam seng" doing on a prom night?
Can't they use the word "Cheers" instead?
If this simple photo shot already feels so difficult for us, wht's more to say when it comes to our bridal shot? Cannot, must pull Bobby and camwhore more. Maybe being vain is not that bad after all.
Bobby was jealous for his height. Claimed that we'll look more matching if he's as tall as Luuee. But I thought that will making kissing difficult and I'm pretty sure Bobby will treat me as his walking arm rest if he's at that height.
I like Winnie. She reminds me so much of myself when talking, of course..I'm slightly more talkative than her I guess? A friend of hers walked forward and show her some plastic pebbles or whatever that's lying on the floor and said she's collecting them. Winnie asked coldly, "For your aquarium is it? Or fried veggies?". Exactly what I'll answer if my friend did the same.
Very smart of them heh?
Refill only the cheaper stuffs. The waiter somemore had the cheek to say, "We actually got prepare enough food one, just don't expect it to finish so fast nya..."
Yeah right. The my students also can come and tell me, "I really got study one teacher, I just don't expect the questions to be so hard nya.."
* * * * *
Our dance of the night
They even had to clear up the space to open up the dance floor. Some people was still eating when they cleared it.
Oh yeah, there was this girl who was sitting near to me that I want to talk about. She was quite pretty and dressed up stunningly. The thing is, she was using the toothpick to "liao" her teeth WITHOUT HER HAND COVERING after eating. It was such a turn off and I'm quite surprised that she got nominated for the prom queen.When the MC announced the list of nominatees for the prom king anf queen, I turned to Bobby and say, "No need to see, we won't stand a chance winning."
And Bobby replied, "You don't need to be pretty or handsome to get nominated. You just need to have a lot of friends and be popular in school."
Quite true heh?

Eyes on me baby
I used the below photo as my display picture in my MSN and everyone says it looks really cool. Thanis said it looks like a cover shot. Except for Alex calling me vain.
Have to okay. We didn't even dress up that nice for CNY, valentines day, xmas, and even birthday. Got to be kiasu a bit and take advantage of it.
Alex even asked me where I took it. =D My photoshop skills is getting better huh? He said it looks like a perfume ad in those fashion magazine.
