Cameronian Arts Awards

So what did I wear to this CARNIVAL themed event?
THIS!!!
I saw this dress not so long ago.... usually I hate the colour yellow and swore and I would never wear anything yellow....hmmmm, never say never... I found myself strangely attracted and fascinated by this dress....

I tried it on, but was still not sure about it...

But then, I couldn't stop thinking about it...

A few weeks before that, I remember seeing the yellow shoes at Sungai Wang... I kept thinking about those shoes too...
I consulted with a very fashionable friend of mine and asked her opinion...

"You could definitely wear this three tiered, bright canary yellow with matching shoes outfit! You have the style to pull it off!" she said with such conviction....

So one week later, I bought the dress and went to Sungai Wang to get the matching shoes.... When I put them in my cupboard, I actually had no idea when I would wear it...

Then I got the invitation to the Cameronian Arts Awards with the theme - CARNIVAL....

Perfect.. I found my event to wear it to!

(by the way, this dress is so comfortable, hides a multitude of figure flaws and is definitely one of my statement dresses in my wardrobe. When my brother saw the dress, he said "oh please.... you're insane..."... whatever bro... you're not my fashion consultant)

Now some people came to the event looking as if they were going to Starbucks for a cup of coffee... Come on lah! Get into the spirit a bit! DRESS UP!

Here are some people who I think looked great and definitely added character and colour to the event...
Fairy Nadia, my upmost respect for you for having the guts to wear those fairy wings! I love it!
My dear Pat Ibrahim, I so think you should have been nominated and won an award for your genius choreography, and you look gorgeous in this magician/ stylish wizard look!

Chacko..... cool!

Nell Ng, Suzan Manen and Lee Lee Lan..... You look fabulous ladies! Put all the young girls to shame...

And who is this mystery masked man? Love the peacock feathers...

The lighting of the actually awards show was not very bright so didn't get good photos...

Puteri Gunung Ledang the Musical which had the most nominations won most of the awards in the theatre category... So they should have... From what I can remember as I write this, they won the Best Supporting Actor, Best Set Design, Best Director, Best Music, Best Script and Audience Choice Award....

The ceremony finished very quickly this year.... There was no performances in between the award giving this year.. last year they had at least 3.... I would have liked to see at least one or two performances as part of the event...

Half way through the event, my sister who came with me whispered "Why do I feel like eating chocolate cake suddenly?".......hmmm..... maybe because usually they serve desserts at events like this.. but they didn't..... so we both felt like something was missing cause there was nothing chocolate based that was being served... We hope there would be something at the after party.... All they were serving was drinks.... (yawn!)

So my sister and I decided to skip the after party and some home to enjoy more After 8 mint chocolates with our 3 furry 'siblings' as company....

Tippex started playing with my shoes.... I don't know what game he was playing... maybe 'touch the yellow shoe'..... whatever... I don't know lah! But whatever it was, he was enjoying himself...

Schizo was in a crabby mood.... growling at everybody including me... And Joberg was content to just watch all of us......

Back to work in the office tomorrow.... got plenty of research to do before my next location shoot.....
(note : now they have the yellow dress I wore in bright pink! That looks pretty cool too..... And I already have pink shoes that can match with it..... hmmmmm.... thinking, thinking....)
