Some backdated events…
Worked with Fidel for Sony Ericsson @ Volvo Ocean Race @ Sentosa last week~
I had to find 8 girls, but only 3 girls were accepted by client T_T
Thank goodness the other 2 girls besides me were uber sweet – MaryAnn & Fidel!
Had to reach there at 7.am, but I only got there at like 7:30am or so and realized half the girls have not reached yet -_-
In the end, we were 1 hour late but the people in charge didn’t seem to mind very much… so yeah. Was terrible waking up at 6am to get ready, the sun wasn’t even up yet! Reminded me of my secondary school days..
The Ericsson racing team were superrrrr dao… boo!
First time that I’ve met angmohs so stuck up and unfriendly~
Thank goodness the Sony Ericsoon staff were uber uber nice! And I had a lot of fun working, although honestly, I had the slackest job of all.
I was given the job of ushering (escort) VIPs onto the stage everytime they were giving a speech.
Sounds like a decent job but there was only a grand total of 2 speeches the entire day.. plus, the VIPS were all seated in the front row so I felt completely redundant
because the distance from the front row to the stage is LESS THAN 1 METRE.
I am so not fucking kidding you!
All I did was stand next to the VIP, stretch out my hand.. I couldn’t even take a step forward cos I was too near to the stage.
I was originally supposed to escort about 3 VIPS on stage but later they decided that I should only “usher” the biggest boss up on stage… Oh ya, besides ushering him on stage I also had to hold onto a phone and hand it over to him when he released it to the media (there were reporters present, etc)
They were very secretive about it, they warned me not to show the phone to any of the other girls working there or basically anyone else at all… Wtf?! Apparently nobody knows about it in SG yet! It’s called the Kokoro (not sure about spelling), some nickname for it.
New phone, looks uncanningly like the LG Viewty, except slightly lighter and more sleek -___- So much for originality.
I held onto the damn phone tightly throughout the entire boring speech (About 1 hour long) and when it was time to present the new phone to the public, he FORGOT that part of the speech and I was still holding onto it!!!
So he “ended” his speech only to be told by his partner that he missed out Kokoro so he went back on. And I passed it to him.
That was all that I did for the ENTIRE day. The second speech of the day, they decided they didn’t need me… and my in-charge told me to “walk around.”
Now you know why I felt so completely redundant. But I felt very relaxed also la, the other girls had really sian jobs of being stationed at booths/kiosks to help out or explain the features, or escorting guests to tour around.
LOL so I walked around to where MaryAnn and Fidel were & kachiao them… Loved the job, except for the fact we had to wake up freaking early and the uniform was AWFUL! The skirt had this “safety shorts” included inside which was so tight, it was like cutting my skin. See what happens when you have fat thighs?!
I don’t get the purpose of the “Safety shorts” being inside though, since it’s TRANSPARENT. Ugh.
I always look awkwardly tall and big!!!! Wtf.
We were all fucking hungry and only had miserable bee hoon for lunch which tasted pretty crappy
Anyway they had the most atas toilet I’ve ever seen!
What’s the word for it? Something like portable. Like you can pack up and move it anywhere? Like most events or pasar malams have?!?! Omg someone must tell me the correct word I feel damn stupid.
GOT AIR CON LEH, WTF. But after awhile it got quite smelly since all the farts/shit/pee kept circulating around. Gross.
They also have a mini TV thingy in the toilet cubicles, so when you shit you can watch the Ericsson team racing. Hmm. Interesting.
Hehehe kinda candid hence the retarded expressions
It was really fun working that day, hope there are future opportunities to work with these sweeties again!
Several days ago, I was invited to Stage Cosmetics Workshop Event & I brought Fidel along again!
It was supposed to be a workshop on how to create a simple day look. Me and Fidel found the workshop a lil sian cos there wasn’t really much to learn, nevertheless I picked a few tips here and there and overall it was still pretty fun cos I love cosmetics!
You might not have heard of STAGE cosmetics before because they’ve just launched last year~
They’re a professional make up brand, mostly targetted towards runways/photoshoots/etc (hence the name Stage?) but of course they also intend to reach out to the average woman with their average prices. Cheaper than M.A.C, but just as professional, that I’d say!
A whole range of brand new cosmetics for us to play with… ooooh fun!
I don’t know why girls are so stingy when it comes to make up… come on la, buying cosmetics is super worth while, so you’d better invest in the correct brand!
If you buy a cheap and lousy foundation to cover up your bad skin, what happens if your bad skin turns worst?! And trust me… most of the time, cheap make up LOOKS cheap, so yeah.
Mac’s individual eyeshadows are less then $30 I think, which is super duper cheap if you ask me, because I’ve never used finish any of my eyeshadows before. $30 for a good eyeshadow that lasts years? WHY NOT?! (although you’re not supposed to keep cosmetics for so long!)
They gave us doughnuts. I was given this ugly and gross orange stripes doughnut which I totally hated and when I saw Fidel’s heart shaped chocolate one I tried to snatch it from her but failed. LOL.
In the end she kindly gave it to me because she loves me! (even though her reason was that because I kept annoying her)
…I didn’t eat it in the end though. HAHAHA.
Guess I can be really annoying.
Us without any make up! Fidel didn’t like the original pic so I drew on our faces. NICE?!
They made us remove allllll our make up and put it back alllll on again…. bummer! If I knew we had to remove our make up, I wouldn’t have bothered putting it on before the event in the first place!
The funniest part of the event was when we had to do our brows… because I was not blessed with beautiul brows unlike Fidel =’(
I hardly had any brow hair left and everybody laughed at my ugly brows. Sigh. Luckily the MUA (make up artist) was super nice and drew it nicely for me on one side.
And then he demanded that I drew the other side myself -___-
Us with eyeshadow on!!! (We had to wear those ridiculous bibs LOL cute or not?!)
Our usual colours – me : brown and fidel : greenish blue thingy lolol
After the STAGE make up event,
we left for Nuffnang’s premiere of INKHEART!
I liked the show, wasn’t fantastic but it was pleasant. So much better than watching action shows like Red Cliff or horror shows like Eden Lake. WTF?
That’s all for this post!
STAGE kindly gave us a goodie bag which had some of their products in it,
and we also got to try their full range of make up during the workshop,
so here’s my review if any of you are interested in trying out their products:
Nail Polish: Thick, glossy with a perfect salon finish and dries quite fast. Easy to apply, I like. But the colour they gave me was dark purple, totally off for me -_-
Eye Primer: Creamy, doesn’t get my eyelid oily and perfect to blend! I don’t usually use primer but I heard it’s advisable… for those who have problems with patchy-looking eyeshadow, try their primer!
Lipgloss: I AM IN LOVE WITH THEIR LIPGLOSS! I got a really sweet nude colour. The texture is rather thick, kind of like… honey? It’s also very very sticky, but this is good because it won’t “bleed” off your lips! Very longlasting. I also love the sweetness of it, some lipglosses are just so smelly.. Kinda like MAC’s lipglass, but way better.
Eyeshadow: Rather pigmented, not much fall-outs, overall not bad but too matte. I like my eyeshadows to be shimmery.
Crayon eyeliner: Me like their colours! It is WAYYY better than MAC’s. Omg I think I may switch brands the next time I shop for cosmetics! It is a lot easier to apply onto your eyelid. MAC’s crayon eyeliners give me a bit of application problem sometimes.
Concealer: Not so good leh. I still prefer ZA’s.
Liquid Foundation: I didn’t see a difference in my skin’s texture except for the fact it looked more cakey. I don’t usually use this sort of product so I can’t give much comments. I didn’t break out though. Which is a good thing, cos sometimes I break out when MUAs use other brands on me for shoots.
Eyebrow pencil: The colour was very easy to blend when I used the angled brush! I like I have to get a new brow pencil soon, my $1.50 Chamelon brow pencil is so dying on me~
Blusher: I really liked the blusher colours from Stage. They’re very natural and sweet, pinkish and peachy tones that would easily suit a lot of people! Easier to blend than my MAC blusher.. I need to switch blusher tones, my current colour doesn’t suit me already =/
Alright, that’s all I can think of at the moment…
Looking forward to seeing my baby tomorrow, he shall come and bai nian to my mother! Have been really busy with relatives the past few days.. I’m not complaining though. Family gatherings are awesome.
