adidasNEO #6: The Announcement

Sorry photo a bit blur. Taken by my 4S front camera. Turns out better than I expected! :)

I'm back after a crazy week!

First off, here are some of the behind the scenes photos taken during my final adidas NEO shoot in Kota Kinabalu.

Shot quite many scenes on the Tanjung Aru beach with my Lil' NEO, but unfortunately, the video couldn't contain too many scenes as we had a limit of maximum 3 mins duration. Nonetheless, we got some nice (random) shots!

This was supposed to be a nice and yao yeng shot. The fella behind a bit distracting but it's ok :) *peace*

This was also supposed to be a yao yeng and "why?? wanna takao??!" shot, but...

Hehehehe that face is more epic than Epic Meal Time! Laughing nonstop! Hahaha OMG I don't think I'll ever get bored marrying this guy :P
A shot with my unsung heroes.

(right) bag holder/driver/creative director/my guardian/my fiancé Ng Boon Hock :D

Seriously guys, if you need a wedding videographer/events videographer/photographer/editor, just contact Gordon at Seriously, he provides excellent, top-notch services. He brought the Lil NEO and all the ideas into life!

Oh, read his side of the story in his blog HERE!

But the bag holder/driver/creative director/guardian is not available for services because he's mine :D hehe

Snippets of my NEO vid!

Check out the 3 stripes on my Lil' NEO!
My fiancé brilliant idea! Who said engineers are not creative people? They're freaking problem solvers man! *proud* :D
Heheh do u see what I see?
Check out who's at the back playing Fruit Ninja?

My new job as an adidas NEO mannequin ;) 

When my world lighted up.
Check our the smile on my Lil' NEO! :D

The Tyra Banks hair-flying scene ;)

Hahah behind the scenes, Boon was using shoe boxes to fan me. Seriously, kudos to my team for the great video put together. *group hugsss*

And of course, all the people who gave me their excellent ideas and inputs such as Gladys the sis, Abel Teh the bro, David Oh the stage daddy and many others! Brilliant peeps with out-of-this-world ideas! I owe it to you guys :)

So, fast-forward a little.

The results were told to be out on Monday (Dec 19), but due to the fact that the adidas management was still in the midst of discussing and making a decision, we were told that it'd be announced on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

So, while I was all sickly and drowsy on my bed yesterday (Tuesday), got a phone call from Gladys the sis who woke me up from my sleep (which is something that pisses me off), and she broke the news to me.

Gladys: Hello? Jie??
Me: Huh....harrooo? *just woke up manly voice*
Gladys: still sleeping?? *gan jeong voice*
Me: Yeahhh...I'm sick! Why you call??! (about to throw a gangsta fight!)
Gladys: Erm, okay. *giggles* I'm sure you don't know this yet but, jie, you won.
Me: Huh?
Gladys: You won. You won adidas NEO!

*awkward silence for 5 seconds*

Me: Huh?? When? They announced already? Where? How you know?? Really ah?? Don't bluff me....
Gladys: Really! I also didn't know! Samantha told me...she saw from the app & adidas Msia page. OMG!!!!!
Me: omgggggg........ *weak sick voice but actually containing my excitement*
Gladys: OMGGG....I'm so proud of you, jie!!!
Me: *stunned*

The adidas Malaysia Facebook Page.
To have my photo as their Profile Pic, I am extremely honored! :')

So that's the story of how I found out I won.
Not too glamorous a way to find out and celebrate due to the irritating fever, but now that I'm feeling much better, I can reply all the tweets and FB comments (not all yet though forgive me!!) and blog! :)

adidas Msia album :)


For the fact that I'm only an amateur blogger who only blogs whenever she likes, and blogs about random stuff that only random readers like you like to read, this is pretty awesome from my expectation :')

The NEO app front page :)

No doubt, I put my heart and soul into this competition more than any other competitions I've been in before but hey, so did the rest of the bloggers who took part!

It's been a real tight competition, and I gotta say that it's been a really enriching experience :)
