Wow! With that intro I think I can do the spiel the models had been saying in the event last Monday. Haha! It was the ostentatious Samsung Roadshow held in Mandarin Hotel – a fabulous showcase of upcoming phones of Samsung for 2008.
‘Twas my first time to attend such a roadshow. A week before that, everybody’s in a panic on the said event and I was wondering why thinking that it will be just like another launch or something like that. I just learned the fabulousness of it all when I was informed that there will be a budget for the dress!! BUDGET FOR A DRESS – this is such a mellifluous music to my ears. Hahaha!!! So this is my little dress story: Hihi.
But of course -I being a Mango dweller- knew already what dress I would go for. I’ve been hankering for a Maxi dress ever since I fitted one last year but haven’t really got the excuse to buy one. I’m talking ‘bout the one Penelope Cruz has been flaunting in all the fashion magazines. When I actually checked the price – oh wow, it was twice what an ordinary dress would cost in that shop. Out of budget. :( But I was glad I was able to fit it though. Haha!! I instantly felt like a film star once upon that dress. :D Call me a lunatic for taking a picture in the dressing room, I don’t give a damn. :P
Another thing, Maxi dress is really out coz we have to dress up corporately. Said LBD can be dressed up or down to whatever occasion can you believe it? Haha!! Take for example - just plain or under a tank top like what I was wearing that time, slip on a cardigan, so many ways to do it! Fab!!
Actually, I wasn’t informed about the whole brouhaha. I arrived around 4 PM not knowing that there was a press conference in the morning. There I was rocked with the fact that it’s time for the gala and everybody was asking me to just remove the shirt to dress appropriately for the night. With a little make-up and a ‘do here and there, there I was ready to rock the night. Haha!!

Pardon the vanity but I just really love how I was made up and everybody liked it too. Thanks to Eric our make-up artist. Too bad I wasn't able to ask for some tips as there was a long queue after me.
