The Chronicles of 2010


What better way to start the post than to have my favourite photo of the year as the start? :)
I know most of you thought it would be another broken promise by the irresponsible blogger when she said she would blog about The Chronicles of 2010 some few weeks ago. Haha but seriously, it was no easy task compiling photos, and most of all, remembering what took place when & where, and with whom. Plus the busy schedule that still occupies me even while I'm on holiday!
2010 was a real fruitful year. It breezed by so fast that I could hardly remember what happened. Believe it or not, I actually went through my tweets, FB statuses & tagged photos as well as my working resume in my email to recall what took place. The process was such a pain!
So after ages of prepping this post, it is finally ready! Oh yeah.
January

Spent the new years eve at Vincent's (check out his amazing photos) with the subzone. Check out how we all looked different even in just a year's time.

Love the hairdo by coussie Jeff, but that marks one of the worst (not the worst. worst one will tell later) & most painful hairdos ever!! Went to the saloon to undo and wash my hair. took 2 hours and 6 people to help me undo. History-making! Hair fall was tremendous.

'The Final Solution' Easter Production

That's me getting into character. It was definitely one of the most stressful dramas I acted in, besides Dance, My Love. Had to cry for all 4 sessions.

Acted as the rich, bratty, lesbian daughter. fuuuuhhhh!

Things got out of control, dad the scientist injects me with the Final Solution. I became a good girl as a result, but the solution killed me eventually.

I died, and I resurrected.

And we lived happily ever after :)
Hahah it was just the summary. More to that than what I said definitely...what I said sounded boring and ridiculous. Must watch the dvd to know how amazing it was :)

5/9 of my family members :P

"Hey, Charity dinner! So when is Melody Dinner?"
Hahahaha funny kiddy moments to remember :)
Assignment Crazeeeee

How can we forget the assignment craze?
Beauty Expo 2010, KLCC

Had one of the most interesting experiences ever. Wearing only a bra tube and safety pants, braved the full blast aircond in KLCC and the frozen sprayed paints all over my body. Just for this Qipao look-alike. Hated the process but I love the outcome :) Felt so wasted when I had to wash it off.

Pretty amazing, huh? Amazing work by the artist.
Joico Hairshow

Okay this is ze most painful hairdo EVER.
Why? Cos firstly, the process of putting my long and thick hair into tiny curls as pic shown above was painful enough, having to sleep (and brave through assignments that very same night) with those few hundred tiny little curlers was a pure nightmare.
Can you imagine how I slept? Cannot right? Yeah I didnt sleep much. And I remember waking up with my front teeth aching. So yeah I think I slept on my front teeth. How else to sleep?
The curlers were only taken out 15 mins before the show, where the stylists were basically ripping them off my head. First time crying at work. *paiseh* Tears were sent uncontrollably down my face. Too painful to bear. I think can compare with childbirth.
Hahaha okay maybe not. But yeah imagine 6 male adults ripping those stubborn curlers off at a brutal & rapid speed. Seeing all my hair stuck on those curlers as they throw them into the basket in front of me was no joke. They understood why I cried. Who wouldn't?

Turned out to be pretty glam. But I told myself, no more hairshows for me. Will leave the rest to earn the money.
The Adelaide Herald
So we were required to design a newspaper front page with InDesign for NDPW Assignment 2, and here's mine :)

If you see this paper on the newstands, will you buy it? :P
I'm actually quite happy with it. Hahah designers please don't crush my self-esteem and laugh at me. I'm the ultimate noob when it comes to techy, designy stuff. Just close one eye k? :P
Visitation to the Special Children's Home

I love children. You would see my head turn when I catch a cute baby nearby. Not just cute babies, make that any baby. My heart breaks when I see babies born sick and disabled physically/mentally. They're not even given the chance to live life, to live to their fullest potential.
We're born normal and healthy, but most of us are wasting our lives away. Don't do that. Remember we're privileged to even have another day go by smoothly. Be thankful and make the best out of your life :)
October
Prudential's Award Night, Genting.

Thank God it wasn't too cold. Those long sleeves weren't good enough to shield us from the cold breeze in Genting. Interesting job...we were given the time to nap. Hahah!!

Juliana & Jeany! Fun babes :)

hahah!!

Heard from my family that it's already shown on TV (I wouldn't know cos I don't have the time to watch TV nowadays). So do check it out! :)
Office Makeup Shoot

One of the best makeup artists around. Such fine work by her. Oh yes, a model can tell a good makeup artist from a bad one. Details equals excellence. And knowing how to enhance your features, that's a good MUA.
Four different looks for the day. It was an eyelash shoot.

Office products are not bad. I recommend the mascara :)
DG Color Model Search 2010
Came across the search on Facebook, and decided to give it a try. Since I've friends who preciously participated before, and since it was not just any one-day pageant, and also since we weren't required to wear bikini (very important), I decided to give it a shot.
First-interview

Without her, I wouldn't have lived a blessed, happy & fruitful 21 years on planet earth. Of cos, not without my dad too lah! :P

So there you have it, The Chronicles of 2010.
Of course those were not all that happened. Left many things out cos
no. 1), I can't recall, and
no 2), I don't have pictures. Hahah!
2010 in a nutshell was fruitful. Yeap, that would be the appropriate word to describe it. The year was packed with so many things, yet, these things are experiences that enhance my life as an individual. None of it went to waste. Learned a lot. Achieved a lot. And the best thing is, I got the best results thus far. Never been so happy with my results before :)

So 2011, I'm looking at achieving even more. Going to new heights and experiencing new things. It's gonna be great :)
Have an amazing year ahead, dear readers.
I will make it a point to be a more responsible & active blogger :P
love, careen.
