The month of May

First of all, thank you all so much for the birthday wishes. I really do feel overwhelmed by all the well-wishes, wall posts on Facebook and even e-cards I received from friends and acquaintances, you guys really know how to make a girl feel special on the day she said hi to the world, 28 years ago now. ;P  I’m currently on a road trip with Joe around the east coast, in Kuala Terengganu at the moment, will be in Penang this weekend to emcee the 7aste Cape Town event at Mansion 32. Penangites, if you guys have nothing on this Friday night do drop by, alright?

So we’re already half way through the month of May. Time flies, doesn’t it?  I really do apologize for not updating more often, a lot of times, I’d feel like updating but I don’t know what to blog about. Plus, it’s been quite a busy 2 months for me, nothing set in stone yet, but I’m really grateful that jobs are steadily pouring in.


I’ve been keeping busy with various photoshoots, from profile shoots to magazine shoots..

Getting hair and makeup done at ‘Glitters by Eddie Putera‘ a brand new studio in town opened by husband and wife team of Eddie Putera and Nurfarahin Jamsari. That’s Awin doing my hair, she did an awesome job on my makeup too!

Kak Farahin had invited me to do some profile shots at their new studio and since I haven’t done a profile shoot in a while, I jumped at the opportunity!!!

This is just one of the shots taken by Abg Eddie and I absolutely love it!

Fooling around with Jason and SK when the cameras weren’t rolling at a Female magazine photoshoot. We were in a petshop at Mines Shopping Centre. I had to cuddle a little bunny rabbit for this photoshoot and I’ve never held a rabbit before, so it was quite a nerve-wrecking experience – for the rabbit and for me!!:)

Legs galore!!! Hehehe… With other hot chiccas for a shoot for Mint Magazine. It’s for the World Cup 2010 special issue and we were all given a quiz about the World Cup and I’d failed miserably. I only got 3 out of 10 questions right!! 😛 Who knew it was Winter time in June in South Africa?!?

Mother’s Day Celebration

The mothers in my life…my grandma and my mum.

I treated my family to a nice dinner at Angus Steakhouse in Pavilion for nice Japanese steaks.

I know a lot of times, our parents just want to spend quality time with us and that’ll make them really happy. However, sometimes, I think a gift is in order, just to show them that we do care and think about them and we appreciate everything that they’ve had to go through to bring us up.  A meaningful gift is just a little form of ‘payback’ if you will…..

This year, I found them both a perfect gift! Aptly named the uMama Warm, by Osim.

My grandma and mum enjoying their uMamas!!

This one compact device thumps the tired shoulders and lower back and also warms the cramping/aching tummy all at once! Joe bought a set for his mother as well!!

Trying out the uCrown2 while shopping around the Osim outlet in 1U. Behind, our 3 sets of uMama Warm ready to be given to their rightful owners.

It’s not a lot of money to spend to guarantee our mums that 15 mins of comfort everyday, knowing that they’ve spent even more on making us comfortable all our lives!

Emergency First Response (EFR) Class

I’ve always had the intention to learn how to do First Aid and CPR but never really pursued it actively. So when Lee and Cyrena from Dolphin Sport told me that they will be conducting EFR classes for some of the soon-to-be Rescue Divers and asked if I wanted to join in the class, of course I said YES!!

About to give CPR to a half-bodied dummy…

We played out some case scenarios as well… It was both fun and informative!! Of course you pray that you’ll never have to perform CPR on someone for real, but with the knowledge, if a situation arises, at least I know I can do my part in helping save a person’s life.

I’ll be taking my Advanced Open Water Diving Course in Perhentian next weekend!! So excited!!! 🙂 Can’t wait to go underwater again!

Around Town..

At the Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2010 fashion show recently, dressed in Marc by Marc Jacobs. I love the skirt!!

All the colourful people dressed in Marc by Marc Jacobs at the show!!

Went to watch the first live show for 8TV’s Showdown 2010 at KL Live Centre last Wednesday. Hafiz from Fly FM is the host of this reality dance show on the lookout for the best dance crew in Malaysia.

There was a mix of some amateur crews as well as professionals in this competition. But boy, can they all dance!! This is the Gila Battle Crew (GBC) performing their routine. They’re one of the crowd favourites. You can watch all episodes of Showdown 2010 on Catch-up TV at

That’s about all I have to update on for now. Gonna go to MYDIN mall now, the most happening mall in KT to do some shopping! hehehe…. Till my next post! Love Love everyone!!

Love, Bel
