Nuffnang Asia Pasific Blog Awards 2011 #napbas

So, the bf invited me to be his date to the NAPBAS 2011. I reluctantly said ok because I know nobody there. You know, the feeling of being #foreveralone in a place full of glamourous people, and yours truly is not a glamourous person.

Plus, I had to travel all the way from Singapore. And go through some pek chek moments while getting ready. You can read all about it here.

We arrive VERY late as firstly, I finished getting ready at 7.55pm (and the event starts at 8pm). Being Malaysian, we know that it will not start exactly at 8pm. We rushed over, thinking Marriott Putrajaya is nearby the airport. Mana tau, using Google Maps, it says “45 minutes away”. T______T It’s near Seri Kembangan there, exit Kajang toll.

The bf’s friend told him that they just started at around 8.30pm. And we were still on our way there.

All dressed up, full make ups done. And I’m happy with the outcome despite having so little time to get ready.

We arrived past 9pm, and Reshmonu was performing.

The usher brought us to our table, where we shared the same table as Cindy of teycindy.com and Jane Lau of chuckei.com. Jane may sound familiar to you, because she is competing in the Adidas Neo contest, along with Careen.

The hosts, Nadia Heng (Ms Malaysia 2010) and the famous Liang

Nope, I did not talk to any of them. They are the bf’s friends, but I shy lah….
I was busy eating and enjoying the performances and awards presentations. =B

We missed the first few parts of the awards presentation and performances. So I think I’ll just blog about what I know.

The performances were great, I had a good time being entertained. Especially from our local celebrity comedian, Harikh Iskandar.

Photobucket

His spontaneous jokes were just too funny and too true about Malaysians and Singaporeans. It didn’t sound offensive, but rather funny!

And the pole dancing was amazing. I just can’t take my eyes away from the whole performances. I was just in awe……..

Photobucket

….because of their muscles! SO muscular omg….

Photobucket

Look at themmm!

The bf said it’s not seducing anymore, because they are so muscular. Haha!

In between those performances, awards were given out.

my blur looking date <3

After the dinner, we headed to Zouk for the after-party. I was very tired, but I have not been to Zouk yet. I wanted to see see look look. The music was great, atmosphere was different compared to other clubs I have been to. But one thing I don’t like is, it is a smoking club. Hate the cigarette smells on my dress and hair. We had a private lounge, which is at the Velvet Underground. Every nuffies had a more private time together lol.

Photobucket

All I did was just drink a bottle of Heineken and sit down and snap picture and meet new people. And no, I did not dance. Though I love dancing, but I you know…I shy…

Photobucket

But anyway, thank you for inviting me to this awesome event. In the beginning, I doubted that I will enjoy myself. But without this big fella, I wouldn’t have the chance that every blogger long for – to attend the NAPBAS.

The people I met are all so friendly and nice. No doubt why you enjoy your field so much. =)
