WEVents 4th Anniversary: The Retro YOU

I was so egg-cited as the day draws closer to the WEVents Anniversary Party


Tonight is THE NIGHT! 
Let me take you on a journey through the eyes as a contestant for the night.

First, let me share with you my story while getting ready for the WEVents Anniversary Party.
I was afro hair wig hunting at my favourite shopping place at Parkamaya
Too bad they ran out of black. The available colours were all too "Clown-ish" with the orange and pinks. It's a Big No No for me. 


Finally arrived at Mid Valley and went and get my hair done.
My hairdo was sponsored by A Cut Above at Mid Valley. We were asked to do our "research" and bring a reference for the stylist to work on the style we wanted. I chose Karen Carpenter's fringe and bob. See my transformation. The stylist did up my hair under 10 minutes. I'm so impressed. So here's to share with you my outcome.


Voila!



Hairdo on the other contestants. Don't they look stunning!

Our make up was sponsored by Benefit Cosmetics
Here's my final make up done by this cute 19 year old make up artist who was patiently painting my face. She did an amazing job and I loved it!

 Third contestant was super cool Nicole who was the calmest of them all. She took the stage with confidence. Once she started singing, the crowd was cheering and everyone was mesmerized by her golden voice. Her voice is just awesome, like from a different era. She caught everyone by surprise. Way to go Nicole!
 Contestant Number Four was Sakinah who also sang.
 Anna Lau's seductive dance to a golden oldie was also entertaining.
 I was up next! Super Kan Cheong ady....I sang Top Of The World
Next, we had Betty Liew on stage showing her grooves and moving to the sounds of Bee Gee's Staying Alive. Oh yes, she is so full of live! 
 Ally Low next serenade us with her song 月亮代表我的心. The crowd was familiar with that song and some sang with her. She looks stunning in her cheongsam.
And finally, Cat Ho, the lady with super long legs like a supermodel takes centre stage with her song Kissing A Fool by George Michael. See how immersed she is with her song and performance. 

Next event lined up was to identify the best dressed ladies. 
All these pretty ladies were shortlisted from the guests and attendees and called on stage                as they have really put in a lot of effort to dress up for the night.
And the winner goes to...Ms Rupa

Not only that, she was also being awarded the most regular attendee of Wevents.

Thank you Wevents for nominating and awarding me with the most supportive blogger. 
I am speechless, truly surprised and humbled. 
Special thanks to Colour Culture (OPI Nail Bar) for sponsoring this gift to me.
The day was full of activities, in between there were also lucky draws for ladies who dropped their name cards. They did not go home empty handed. 

The next session was fun and cheeky.
Guests were to bring their old vintage photographs that tells a story. These two lovely ladies were selected among the guests to have the most interesting photo and they competed for a winning spot.


This was a true winner with her proud photo. It was her husband's photo as a kid. And she shared with us her story that night.


And these were some of me and my friends' photos
