Part II: Double Wow! It's JKhan & RJ Couture!

22 December 2012 , The big day is finally here!. I decided to follow my sisters to take a look the ballroom before dressing up & doll-up. Everyone look very busy with their part. Few busy with the deco and few busy with RJ Couture-JKhan rack arrangement, some busy with sound system and some busy with practicing. It is a good experience for me to learn more the true story before and after an amazing fashion show or party. The ballroom look very different from last night from the table setting, dazzling chandeliers until to the wall of fame setting. I'm impressed with the team work. Good job everyone. The time show it's nearly 1 o'clock. I can see everyone in the rush to complete the ballroom into an exciting place even someone enter it later this evening. Everything will be perfect when i'm back. I'm sure all the guest will feel wow! the moment they stepping in to this ballroom. There Bey (Datin RJ's sister), Suhaila (Bey's cousin) and I, take a peek to the make-up room to see the models. I just love the hairdo and make-up. Simply couture! You can't get any fashion show that very detail like Datin RJ did,especially here in Kota Kinabalu. It is time for me to dress-up, two hours left before the event. Everyone in the room busy with their make-up, steaming their dresses, some preparing the couture dresses for the show, some busy choosing the right shoes or what the best accessories to wear. Simply chaotic. I just love the atmosphere.

My look that evening inspired from my favorite perfumes Chanel (Allure-Edition Blanche) and Gucci (Guilty for Men). Actually, I didn't know what I should I wear that particular evening. Thank God, I bring along few back-up shirts and trousers with me. I always stay-by and always be alert. I may don't look so trendy or macho or whatever you want to describe me. Like my grandma always said to me, [classic mixed your attitude = look good!] My mind rolling around..should I wear black or white. I stop, I left my stuffs for awhile on the bed and concentrate with my hairdo. After that, I spray my perfumes. The moment I smell the fresh scent. I decided to wear my white shirt, charcoal-grey colour trousers and style it with my tailored vest. I take a look to the mirror again. Uhmm..something missing here. I complete my wardrobe with a beautiful soft black scarf from London. Dazzle-up with my Bedazzled Swarovski Owl Brooch, Blue Sand Stone with white gold ring and fully round Swarovski stones ring and finish my look with leather clutch and my favorite Valentino Rudy white Shoes.



It nearly 6 P.M, It's time to go down and meet all the beautiful fashion lover and high-fashion people in Kota Kinabalu. The minute we arrived, I take the opportunity to see the ballroom. "Ohh my God! It's so beautiful. Okey, I will take a look you again ya my dear ballroom, ambik gambar dulu" said I. Before there no ones disturbing or clashing-bumping all at once for the Wall of Fame. Me, The RJ's Sisters, my cousin Susan Shahira, Mae, Mansor, Wirda and Emran taking charge the wall. Pose and pose until the first guest stepping into the lobby. All of us having fun. Well, it is a fun evening to experience. Ohh yes, pose again but this time all snap by the photographers until I ran from it, enough taking photo let others have their chance. I decided to find my table and have a few minute rest before the show started. I falling in love with the ballroom setting, lighting, music and flower deco. I see Christian Dior by John Galliano's Party or Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld's Party. It's so international! I totally love it. I just cannot wait to see all the model to strut their walk and pose very avant garde chic!.

Wow, It's JKhan! : Part I

I still remember, the moment..I marking down the calendar to remind myself about Malaysia International Fashion Week this year. Ohh yes, I feel super excited about it. I even planned my leave, flight and where to stay. Sadly, AGAIN! My sweet plans ruin. Well, the whole drama-lama-glama is over and I move on. Thank you to my darling sister Datin RahmahJan, recently bring happy news for me. “ The show will not ended there my dear little brother, don’t be worry. I will bring the runway excitement to KOTA KINABALU and share it with my friends and loyal customers too." said her.  There many surprises prizes await the guests to grab it. The more I hear about the details the more interesting and tempting. The best part is been invited to stay a night or two with the team by Datin RahmahJan herself at The Pacific, Sutera Habour Resort. The minute I hear it, I replied to her “I will be there my dear sister to support you and learn new experiences. No, worries. I’m sure my stay will be fun surround with my good friends as one fashion family.” Thank God, I already apply my leave earlier - few days before Christmas Day.
Day before the event, I feel so strange and nervous the whole day like something bad going to happen. I spend few quiet minutes pray to Him hoping that my family, close friends, love one and I in good health and protected from harm and sickness. I try to calm myself and the best to finish my daily tasks before off on my holiday. I don’t drag myself down just because one unknown feeling. After work, I pick-up all my stuffs then drove to Sutera Habour Resort. The whole way from place until KK City center; traffic jam. I do understand. It is Christmas season, school holiday then sandwich together with after office hours. Of course, massive traffic jam will be all round in KK City. Thank God, I still feel fresh and calm although my day quite tiring. Then, while I’m driving to continue the queue on the road. Bang! I thought someone hitting my car from the back. I take a peek from the mirror. Thank God, It’s not my car. Maybe my way to the destination has been blessed by God and it is luck to be there. All the way I drove my car with my hands and body shaking because everything happen so fast. The moment I arrived the best I can try to center myself.

The moment I saw my cousin Susan Shahira from afar straight to my mind. Okey, I'm here nothing to worried. Everything going to be fine. I only able to release sigh. It was a big relief my cousin, friends including my darling sisters there to comfort me. Such a drama fluffy king,right? But i'm not playing around but it is like a bad phobia for me. Thank God, I don't cry that particular time. Half an hour for me to center my mind and soul, yes..my body too. I sat next to my dear sister Datin RJ surround with her darling fashion friends. Slowly my mood turn okey and feel content. Well, infront of me is Wirda the famous Magazine Editor, Emran - the cool fashionable banker and Mansor the amazing Malaysia’s Trendsetter. No time to be stupid and my body-mind be controlled by the situation. I take a look around the ballroom. Although, the team still trying hard to set-up the deco and make sure each of the details show the best result for tomorrow evening. I adore the way Datin RJ when do her work. She is very active and think great ideas in few seconds. Creative and Smart, that is the true Datin RahmahJan.

It is a great feeling for me when a friend of mine talking or sharing all about fashion. Yes, Fashion is my passion. There come a point when I think it deeply. How deep is my devotion for it? How deep is my language and knowledge about it? How consistent – in my style and attitude with Fashion. Did anyone think or come with the above questions. Maybe I sound little bit crazy but that is the true confession of a Fashionisto. It has been a long time I didn’t write any story for my darling loyal readers because focusing with my work and family. Yes, I do have a serious life. Living in the damn reality world. Serious on the day and Fun in the night. I let my darling readers to think with my questions. If you can answer it. You're still in the circle. Back to my story, After hours and hours with deco arrangement and Audio checking. All of us take a rest and having our dinner together. Simply love it. We eat, laugh and chit-chating as one Fashion family.

Its nearly midnight, she still trying hard to come out the best deco for her event. I really admire the way she work, the passion for her brands but still remain humble and very caring to all her family members, close friends and staffs. I did wonder how she can handle it all? Two tips that she teach to me is always be thankful and stay-grounded. Such a good role model for the youngsters. I observe, each of them in the room. Some busy with their gadgets and some busy discussing for the next plans. I guess everyone playing their role a JKhan team. While I, busy writing my blog through Active Note from my phone. Ya, sound so professional or like someone very important. Ohh ya, in my dream! keep on dreaming buddy! wake-up! hahaha. I wish I can be like Victor Blanco or BryanBoy. But my blog not so great like they did. There many things I have to learn, ya,alot! From names, history until tiny details. Trust me, not all can pronounce Chanel or Dior correctly. Okey,back to my story. After satisfied with first stage look. Datin RJ decided go back to her room and take rest. It is a great honour to stay in at The Pacific, Sutera Habour. Again! we continue chit-chating but more relax and chill in our pyjamas. Datin RJ's servants look very cute all in pyjamas uniform. Ohh my, It's nearly 1 am. Then, the bell rang. The hansome and tall Mr.Sang just arrived with huge luggage bags with him. In my mind, please..please tell me that is the new collection. One by one the new collection revel infront of Datin RJ, Wirda, Me, Nicky, Cyril and including the servants too. Our face expression look so excited and very happy to see all of them. But my eyes can't help it anyone. The moment everything clear, I straight to my bed and sleep. Tomorrow will be another exciting day. I ready my curtain wide open at least the moment I open my eyes, I will see clean blue sea with luxurious yatchs wait to take-off.

In the sudden, I heard something falling. I force my eyes to open. Ohh okey, the black Tote Bag say Hi to me. Then, when I turn my body; I saw a beautiful bright morning. The sky so clear, blue ocean with the yatchs at the Sutera Habour jetty. It is an interesting morning for me to wake-up with different view. I feel so blessed,calm and thankful. I take few minutes admiring the beautiful view from the window then take my bath. Only half an hour I left, after I return..WOW! beautiful JKhan's bags. There was my dear sister Datin RJ busy arranging and checking her bags for tonight sale. My eyes can't stop to take a look JKhan Tote Bag. I will call it as a Tote Bag not a Shopping Bag. The bag suitable for a fashionable guy. Great to bring it at the office or weekend outing. High quality polyster fabric with fine cow leather. The gold JKhan logo totally a stunner. I love the bag, simply stylish and practical. Okey! I take it one. I guess that morning Mansor, Emran and I are the first customer to support their new collection. The minute, three of us get our bags. We go out and show it to the public for the first time. Feel proud to carry it same feeling like you carry a LV bag.
22 December 2011, The big day is finally here....!!! ( to be continued )

Ku,Budak Baru Belajar: Mahal atau Murah, Tepuk Dada Tanya Selera

Semua rakan sepejabat sudah memulakan cuti mereka di kampung dan ada yang berehat di rumah. Sudah pastinya keadaan pejabat sunyi bagaikan perpustakaan yang terbiar. Ya, saya akui berlegar-legar di fikiran akan cerita yang menakutkan. Tetapi ia tidak mematahkan semangat untuk mencari rezeki. Sedihnya, saya tidak berapa sihat. Mungkin faktor cuaca membuatkan keadaan kesihatan saya kurang stabil dalam minggu ini. Memandangkan saya sahaja di dalam pejabat. Saya mulakan mengira bajet untuk berangan-angan membeli sebuah beg Birkin Hermes 40 atau clutch koleksi lelaki musim bunga 2012 daripada Louis Vuitton.


Mungkin bunyinya agak bercita-cita tinggi. Tetapi ia sudah menjadi hasrat saya untuk memiliki beg-beg ini. Ramai kawan rapat saya berpendapat taste saya terlalu mewah dan sound too girlish. Bagi saya, ia satu keperluan bagi saya. Mengapa perlu barangan berjenama? Sebahagian besar beg-beg idaman saya dikeluarkan oleh produksi jenama besar daripada luar negara. Mereka mempunyai kepakaran bagi menghasilkan satu produk lebih halus dan berkualiti. Saya akui, saya memang seorang yang cerewet apabila membeli sebuah beg mahupun ketika membeli pakaian. Jahitan dan tekstur fabrik perlu kita perhatikan dengan teliti. Jika tidak, barang itu mudah rosak. Tidak kisah lah samada barang itu mahal atau murah. Kita kena tahu hak kita sebagai pengguna.

Alahai..tekan sini tekan situ dengan mesin kira  saya melihat ramalan bajet mungkin belum tiba masanya untuk saya untuk memiliki beg tersebut dalam masa terdekat ini. Tidak mengapa,reka bentuknya yang classic dan forever fresh tidak berasa rugi bila membelinya kelak. Ia juga salah satu sikap saya ketika memilih sesuatu barang apatah lagi jika barang itu mahal. Tidak guna memilih koleksi yang kita miliki itu mengikut trend kemungkinan stail itu untuk semusim bukannya klasik. Adakalanya, ia tidak bersesuaian dengan karakter  dan usia kita, itu yang kena hati-hati. Saya bersyukur dikurniakan Mummy dan Grandma yang begitu teliti bila memilih sesuatu barang hinggakan hendak membeli sayur pun kena teliti ya.

Grandma saya memiliki pelbagai beg kulit yang high-quality. I do learn many things from her especially fashion. Dah namanya, seorang bekas kebaya nyonya maker di Kuching. Beliau pernah berkata jika kita pandai menjaga sebuah beg berasaskan kulit, ia boleh tahan hingga ratusan tahun. Teknik penjagaan amat penting. Saya agak terkejut melihat salah satu handbag yang digunakan ketika beliau bercuti  ke Kota Kinabalu beberapa bulan lalu kelihatan baru. Reka bentuk beg Bulagginya cukup klasik dan unik,  memukau saya sepanjang percutian kami sekeluarga di Kinabalu National Park,Kundasang. Sehingga saya menanya beliau sendiri sebab tidak tahan. Usia beg tersebut sudah pun menjangkau belasan tahun. Wow! Sememangnya, vintaj tetapi kelihatan baru.

Entah bila lah boleh memiliki beg-beg idaman saya seperti jenama Louis Vuitton, Prada, Hermes dan Gucci dengan hasil titik peluh sendiri. Hasrat dan usaha untuk memiliki ia tidak pernah padam. Menyimpan wang sedkit demi sedikit pasti lebih bermakna apabila membeli dan menjaga beg-beg ini kelak. Baik mahal atau murah tepuk dada tanya selera. Ia terpulang pada kehendak dan keperluan seseorang itu. Biarlah ia murah tetapi mempunyai ciri ketahanan dan tidak menggunakan barangan tiruan. Tidak semestinya, seseorang itu mampu memiliki beg berjenama tetapi tidak pandai menjaganya ia pasti membawa kerugian padanya juga. Jadilah pengguna yang bijak.

A Great JOURNEY! : WW Magazine Launching Event in KL

Kuala Lumpur is a place where you can find or found anything that you want or desire. Never in my dictionary will step into this city after I heard many bad incidents from the local news and my friends. Still I need to love KL because there where fashion capital for Malaysia. Everything changed after I've been invited to WW Magazine Launching in Kuala Lumpur by Datin RahmahJan Sulaiman Khan (Owner of W Publication & RJ Couture-JKhan) & Wirda Adnan (Editor-in-Chief of WW Magazine). I, with big open hands said "Yes, I will come and support both of you my dear sisters". It is a happy moment for me been invited by two top powerful women in Malaysia's fashion industry. Silly me not one knows that it will be my first time to KL and honestly I do feel afraid if anything happen to me. Well, Kuala Lumpur is a big city and people didn't care what will be happening to you if you been robbed or maybe an accident. But I didn't said that KL is a horrible city. Every big cities in this world have their own story,right? Deep in my heart, I wish to stay and work here.

My mind and soul changed automatic after I saw how busy and unique KL city. My eyes pop and rolling like poping eye-balls when the minute the ride cruise entering KL city. There branded boutiques,chic restaurants and cafes not forget cool fashionable pedestrians. It was a great relief, away from my hectic daily life and concentrate with I passionate in. Here, I from Sabah with big hope "report for duty" following with my friend Mr.Nicky the photographer. I guess I getting more and more in love become a fashion and social observer. Observe,Experience it and WRITE! much better for me. I'm a working guy and work totally out from what I interested (Art & Fashion). While, What I doing now is to fulfill my soul desire. There was me day-dreaming what going be happen as soon I arrive at JW Marriott Hotel. Everything stop when the moment driver said "Okey, We finally arrived..Sir." I feel like I want to hop around because too happy! Then, JW Marriott's hotelier ushered us to the lobby area. There I saw Datin RJ and her sister Bey waiting for us. My friends and I was welcome with big smile and hugs by them. We do feel safe with Datin RJ and her family around.
My friends and I did followed Datin RJ cruising around to see Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior boutique at Starhill Gallery before all of us off to Pavillion for lunch at Madam Kwan. After taking our yummy lunch then off to Suria KLCC. Everything for me so fast and in my mind "I need to adapt with my sounding very fast if not jadi lah budak kebinggungan" but thank God I still okey and able to adapt. One thing I realized about KL shopping malls sememangnya wangi dan rasa segar jak. In one day I able to experience and do my observation more closer about branded things. Touch here touch there, feel the seam on the dresses, high quality material in each luxurious bags or dresses and amazing sexy shoes. Miu Miu, Prada to Chanel everything in one building. Even weekdays many people in and out buying their own dream handbag, shoes or maybe just shades. I quite amazed and makes me thinking. But, If I in their shoes I, myself will support and buying original bag or any collection. It is not we buying the brand. We actually buying the real quality; from material until to workmanship. I did few times watch how a beautiful branded handbag piece been made and I know why the price tag like OMG! Really?!

There was I admiring and try to take look each Miu Miu's collection. Simply my taste. Pastel colours,beautiful bags design and classy shoes. While I busy play around with Miu Miu bags. I didn't realized that one of most important person chit-chat with Datin RJ. My jaw-droping and I'm speechless the minute I saw Sebastian of Prada. Its a great feeling to chat and see him in person. Perfect memontos in my 2011 dairy. I'm amazed and little bit surprised when he did once visited Sabah - Land Below The Wind somewhere in Tuaran. He should try Nexus, Karambunai if he need clean and private beach to relax or maybe visit Gayana or Mabul Island to explore real Sabah colourful treasure. In one day, I met many important people and experienced KL atmosphere; double happy. My mind keep on rolling. I'm super exhausted. When will I going back and get 10 minute nap; Yah, In my silly dream. Then, Datin RJ said to me that all of us will going for dinner at Shook! Starhill Gallery with the amazing Mansor, the smart Emran not forget the beautiful Wirda. "Great!" I replied. I enjoyed my dinner surround with interesting people around me. Although, only few times I met them. They treat me very nice like a young brother and give me good advice in life. I really appreciated it. Most of them very hardworking and really struggling what they aiming to; all of you guys really inspired me. The lovely dinner atmosphere ended with serious discussion, its mean that the young ones have to make a move. I take few hours to enjoy the view of KL City before off to bed. I starting to love KL City. It is a great place to explore surround with new youth vibes.
My alarm normally dang! my ears around 6 A.M, there was me with my eyes wide open. Ohhh..why still dark? Sekarang sudah jam 6 bah. There was me sitting down near to the window watch people off to work and some of them having their breakfast. Interesting. Nothing much different like morning atmosphere in KK City. I guess I starting to love KL City. Time passing by, I'm ready to walk, walk and window shop, shop. Again, all of us continue to explore and shop if get any luck find something nice to wear for the event. The whole Bukit Bintang my friend and I walk and search. Quite interesting to see many type of people passing by; totally international. From Pavillion to Fahrenheit 88 until Sungai Wang. My friend and I, shop and shop 'till dark. "God goshhh! It is 9:15 P.M" said I. "Last stop at Lot 10 to ZARA,okey" replied Nicky to me. Without think deep like helloooo your wallet my dear, control with your spending. I walk fast afraid the outlet will closing soon. There was me and Nicky walk straight to Men's departement. I found my size here deep in my heart. "Ohh uhhh..Fall Collection, I like!" I bought a beautiful cardigan & polo cap. What I can say that ZARA quality standard very good and suitable for modern-trendy fashionista & fashionisto. Okey! Me and Nicky back to our hotel around 9:50 P.M. I think that a break record, shopping the whole day. But I feel really blessed and happy. In one day I found beautiful rings in Pavillion, bought an elegant necklace for my mummy birthday present and something new for my wardrobe. Well, tomorrow is the big day! Everything need to look good and perfecto. Everyone still awake busy preparing what to wear tomorrow including me while waiting Marilyn & her hubby Andy to arrive. I decided to look modern mix classic for the event.

30th of September 2011 is the big day. Around 8 A.M, my friends and I getting ready to make our hair and make-up done by Shawn 1 and Shawn 2. 1,2..3 hours pass by. There was I still not dressing up just because I forgot to bring along my socks. Dang! wardrobe malfunction. Thank you to my friends helping me to bring my socks when they done dressing up (thank you so much guys). Again, thing happen like always. Dress-up like 5 minutes on the rush. Thank God! I do my own hairdo earlier and everything runs smoothly. I still remember the moment everyone step out from the lift. Each of people at the lobby like starstruck in their eyes saw how the ladies beautifully dress-up with their amazing hairdo and make-up not forget how hansome the guys in their suits. Glam moment I guess..it is good to see my "sabahan family" look so perfect and ready to hit the red carpet. We did take our opportunity to take snapshots of yourself for momentos. I feel really nervous while waiting our rides to come and fetch us. I take few minutes to adjust my look before off to Shangri-La HotelTiang-tiang hotel lah jadi mangsa sebagai cermin. I dress-up in black shirt with wool scarf and grey trousers, pin at tip of my collar shirt with late daddy's vintage gold cross pin. For the first time, I put two amazing rings in my fingers. Even myself until now still falling in love with the gold lion head bite a pink pearl. Not forget my white gold ring. Few of VVIP guest at the event giving credit to me wearing that big ring. Only God knows, If I put this type of ring on my finger around in KK for sure people will laugh and gossip behind my back. That makes me loves KL mind. I completed my look with leather Men Clutch and my icy white Valentino Rudy shoes. For me, I dress-up quite ok for that type of event. If I own a suit or vest, I definitely will wear it with a shirt and amazing bedazzling brooch. I prefer simple and classic; not forget I will wear anything in my wardrobe again..again and again. I will say that I will not forcing myself to buy branded shirts or suits or maybe buy something whenever I attend an event. I'm love fashion but I'm NOT rich, just an ordinary fashion blogger that know to style and passionate in Fashion.


This is my look for that evening

It was heavy traffic jam around Bukit Bintang. It is obvious, the event fall on Friday. There was my friends and I waiting our ride to fetch us. One of the hotelier said to me and Datin RJ's sisters Bey and Azlina. "All of you look very dashing and elegant this beautiful afternoon". I blushed. Three of us give a grin smile and thank to him. Yes, I guess it is indeed a beautiful afternoon. The weather not too hot and there no signs its going to rain. The moment I saw five rides infront of me. Ohh wow! It is like a modern fairy tale. Magical carriage come to fetch you then bring you to the royal ball. Dang! Again, too much day-dreaming. Honestly, I feel the same like Ugly Betty feels. Deep in my heart, I feel really happy to experience it and thankful what I received. For me, that is much more important. Around 1:50 P.M, My friends and I arrived safely at the beautiful Shangri-La Hotel. My friend Nicky was assigned to take snapshots for WW Magazine. Heaven God, how he can handle with his big gear here and there. In my mind, Good luck my friend. The event is getting to start. I still remember, theres camera's flash all around the moment when Deborah Henry (Miss Malaysia/Universe 2010-2011) and I taking picture together. The crowd quite wild. I don't even have the chance introducing myself to the media and photographers while each of asking my name. I decided just key my mouth..tidak mahu melebih-lebih, lebih baik diamkan diri jak. Great to met Deborah again. Yes, Deborah. The beautiful tall everyone sweetheart attend the event too. She wearing a simple 60's cut lacy short dress in white colour. Carrying a classic cream Chanel handbag. Even I love her look that evening. Simple but sweet. Few Malaysian celebrities also eye-catching that evening like Natasha Hudson wearing a beautiful white dress with dazzling details around the waist with a cute hat, Former Malaysia's Supermodel Nik Nafisah Marini Kamil in her sharp clear cut trench coat by Granoff (If I not mistaken),Sazzy Falak in beautiful nude low neck line JKhan dress and Dynas all in black with her 2 piece look simply classic glam rock with leather for the skirt. Everyone dress-up correctly according they should look like with they own style.

I step into the ballroom because I feel little tight at the ballroom lobby. The crowd too much for me, I decided to follow my friends and take our seats. The moment the door open. WOW! I love the setting. Simply my taste. Yes, although the space too big and little bit empty at the stage. But, that is real women all about. Sweet and simple. Not forget the event is not a fashion show. Well done WW team! Guest one by one walking through the ballroom door look very glamour and hansome. Most of them important people in Malaysia's Fashion Industry. From where I sit, I can see Sabah's Socialite Ms.Rozita, Wanita UMNO Sabah group, Azwan Ali, Natasha Hudson, Kem SallehDynas, Bon ZainalFaisol, Aishah Sinclair, Yasmin Hani, Datin Sharifah Ervinna, Sasha Bashir, Of course very friendly friends Mansor, Emran and the amazing Supermodel Marini and many more. I feel very happy to see many Datin RahmahJan & Wirda's play-mates come giving their best support to this two beautiful strong women. From what I observed, everyone at the event 100% support WW Magazine. I feel really happy and proud with my darling sisters. That really what inspired to move more forward be great among others. It is not wrong to be a failure in the first round, try again the next one for sure you will be better. I know how it feels and through it. From afar, I smiled and pray for the best to my friend also like a big sister to me : Datin RahmahJan & Wirda Adnan. The ceremony was launched by the graceful Datin Seri Tengku Marsilla. After the launch ceremony on the stage ended, jeng..jeng! the waiter and waiteress bringing out all the 2nd issue of WW Magazine. The moment I saw the magazine cover. Hah! there you go! I love the 2nd issue said it very loud. Straightly, I flip out the pages to see the content and of course I will read Kak Wirda's, Datin RJ's and Abang Mansor's article first. Silly me, even I didn't realized Kak Bey calling my name,photographer taking my picture or the TV3 camera-man around me..worst I didn't realized the cute Afgan singing on stage. Well, that is me if I start reading. Thank God, a beautiful Lawyer next to me asking about something if not I keep continue reading it.

After 2 hours, one by one the VIP and celebrities stepping out, few still mingle around and few busy taking snapshots with their fans and friends. I also taking my chance to chat and taking picture with my celebrity friends. When all the guests already make a move. The sabahan family and WW Team take a deep breathe and release all our stress out. Everything runs smoothly. I, as a new blogger feel a great honour and happy experiencing from the early process until to end. It is not easy to receive this chance specially in this type of industry. You need to be fast, honest and tough. I learn many thing in one week from surviving skills, how to be a opportunist until taste little bit of fashion meet glam world. Honestly, you need to work extra hard then you can reach your biggest dreams. I love to observe and learn then critic. I may don't talk much but I talk through my writing. Back to story, each of us giving a sign that semua dah selesai! bah apa lagi..jom shopping lagi. Simply madness. We did! After all of us back to the hotel..get change then off to Pavillion again. I look around and admiring KL nightlife full with neon lights and different type of music for the last. My watch telling that its around 10 P.M, "Okey..Reagan. It is your bedtime". Ops! wait..wait. Last stop, Datin RJ, Kak Alus, Maureen and I take a rest and having a cup yummy hot tea at Starhill Gallery Cafe. Four of us chit-chat about life and health until the haunted part. Eeemm..Datin RJ sempoi jak cerita hantu padahal malam-malam sudah buat saya dan Kak Maureen ketakutan sampai take few minute baru boleh tidur. Whenever I remember that part, I laughed. Silly me but quite funny. On the 1st of October is the day I say good bye to the lovely KL City. It bring sweet memory in my 2011 dairy.


Me with the beautiful family that I adore and care very much :)
