Glam Rock

Sorry for my long hiatus, kinda busy lately, no time to really sit down in front of my laptop to edit photos. Didn't even have time to look at the photos that I took at Bali and also events that I've attended lately. Hope that after the beginning of November things will be more settle down and I can have more time to blog. *cross fingers*






Did a show for Snips 2 days ago, if you followed my Instagram you probably have already seen all these photos, but still I decided to use those filtered photos and did a short blog post. lazy me. lol. But better than leave the blog un-updated, right? Haha. Only 3 female models out of 11 models, and that was the first time I worked with Lau Ka Man, one of the Top 20 finalists of this year's Miss Astro pageant. 




Early morning rehearsal




Rehearsal is one of the headache part of the day, not because of the arrangements or choreography, but the time. The only time we can rehearsal for a show when it's happening in a shopping mall will be before the mall opens, that means we have to stuck in the traffic with all those who are going to work/school. Then after rehearsal we got nothing to do till the call time for preparation, which some times we have hours to spend. Mostly we just hang out and yumcha. lol.






That day's show theme is Glam Rock, and it will also be my first time to braid my hair.


Pain




It's a painful process to braid all my hair, and I have no idea how the Africans or those who did withstand the pain. I almost jumped out from my chair each time they start braiding my hair. The whole process took longer than 5 hours, and the pain gave me headache. Nonetheless, it was my first time did braiding and I really love the outcome! I thought of doing it during my Krabi trip but it's kinda out of my budget + I have show to do the next day I fly back to KL, so it will be a total waste of money even though I did it. So, this show kinda makes my dream come true




The spirit of Rock








Amanda and her blonde her.
Lesser styling too, unlike mine, just hers got a lot of spray. lol






The braid sisters. lol




Not the first time did a show for Snips Hair Salon, but it will be my first time to be in my own pair of Converse and walked the stage. One of the relaxing show I've ever done, no stress, no rules, just walk out with attitude. That's it. I really hope I did a good job for that day.



Outfit of the day.
I really like the oversize knit top.






Thank you Snips and Maxx for the opportunity. Although the process is a bit painful and almost unbearable, but still it was one of the unique hairstyle I ever had and I still have it today. Feels a bit wasted if I remove all the braids on that day, after endured so much pain, might as well leave the hairstyle as it is for a few more days.





It's been some time since I did Rock style, thanks for reignite the rock spirit in me. Love it all over again!!!

Scholl Autumn Winter 2013

Founded in year 1904 by Dr. William Mathias Scholl, for more than 100 years, Scholl is a renowned shoe brand recognised for protecting our sole and providing leg comfort at the same time. Such a well-known brand since my parents and grandparents generation, it's my pleasure to witness their year 2013 Autumn Winter Collection.





Once again, thanks for the link up by Tammy, me, Jean and other bloggers managed to get the first hand news on the collection that lined up as the Autumn Winter collection of Scholl. The more I get to know about Scholl, the more I realized that how important our feet is to our body and how much more we can do to protect it from being harmed by the shoes we choose to wear each day. Compare to beauty, our health is more important and deeply in need to be taken care of anytime. 





Scholl outlet at Sunway Pyramid.






Here are the first wave of Autum Winter collection that have been release in July.
The Eilina Collection.







Each footwear has its own function and benefit to the wearer.
You can choose the one that suits your needs.



Doris, the Product Manager of Scholl footwear were there accompanying us bloggers when we were trying the shoes that we like at the outlet. We have a very hard, hard time to choose what we want because each of them were looking good and so comfortable that you will forget you're wearing a pair of shoes at your feet and walking around for one whole day wouldn't be a problem anymore. I was looking up and down, searching for that one pair of shoes that I like and finally found these two:





Similar design, which should I choose???



After a tour around Scholl's outlet, only I find that Scholl have so many good designs that comes with comfortable sole and also some with functionality which is good for the backbone too. There are some funky designs that suits for beach wear, some classic designs which suits for working attire and also some good looking footwear that suits for daily outing. After a hard time deciding, I finally made up my mind and opted for the white sandal. I really love the colour, design as well as the comfortable feeling of wearing the sandal.





You hardly can see it here but this is the first time I'm wearing it after I get the sandal.
Outing for a whole day with friends never felt so comfortable and light-weighted!




My All-Is-White Coordinate.
Love how the sandal matched with my daily coordinate.





Besides the current collection that are sold at Scholl's outlet, you should check out what's coming to the shelf as there are many, many different types, colours and designs and surely there'll be one pair of Scholl that you like!



Eliza Collection
Designed with special function Arch Support, this collection ensures those with flat feet, weak or fallen longitudinal arches get the support that they need as long as they are wearing this collection. Mainly in red, tobacco and black, the collection comes to you during the festive season of Deepavali right after Raya!
(Available from September 2013 onwards)








Edge Collection
With Edge Collection available from September, buying a pair of men shoes will be easier. It is sleek and stylish and perfect for those who wanna find a pair of comfortable shoes for dinner and party all night long. With the collection's Massage foot bed, I bet you won't be having any after-party sore feet and legs anymore!








Evelyn Collection
With Evelyn's Sole Support, these sandals comes with easy slip-on and sling-back design which make it your perfect grocery/business trip footwear in October. Sole Support foot bed lets your feet and toes exercise for better grip as you walk to tone up your toe muscles. These earth-toned foot wears also provide additional support to weakened metatarsal arches so that the ball of your foot is protected.









Camelia 2  Collection
The shoes are attached with a floral motif and are more feminine compared to the other ranges in the collection. Available in peach, dark brown and taupe, this collection comes with Arch Support foot bed, which makes walking around for Deepavali friends and relatives house visiting a breeze.





Edison Collection
As for the guys in November,  the Edison Collection with Scholl's Gelactiv foot bed, a gel for impact absorbing makes walk, work, running errands and partying nothing but comfortable. With stylish and hip designs, these foot wear are made to cushion and protect from the impact of how you move around with it.







Edeline Collection
Scholl's Edeline collection comes with Arch Support will be available in the market in December, which makes it a perfect timing for Christmas! Available in Black, Brown, Camel and Red combination, footwear from this collection is gonna make a stunning impression during Christmas.








Festive Ladies
This gotta be one of my favourite designs! Love how the ribbon motif light up the shoes and make it look classy yet cute at the same time. This collection are perfect for your formal wear to party and dinner functions, stylishly comfortable in open toes or slip-on designs. The ribbon motif really does make one feels like a princess and dance her night away.








I'm looking forward for Scholl's upcoming Autumn Winter 2013 collections to be release in their outlets. Scholl are available in all major shopping centres and shop lots nationwide, it will never be difficult to spot Scholl available at shopping places near you.




Thank you Scholl for them comfortable shoes, love it!

Took a lot of photos during the 3 days 2 nights trip and of course, a lot of experience to share with you all. Will blog about it once I have time to sit down and edit the photos. Can't wait to show you how stunningly beautiful the place is!

Not to mention I still have tons of backlog blog post haven't write. Give me some more time will ya God!






Okay, while I try to clear out my work, here's a photo I took at Uluwatu Temple during sunset.
