This was one of my favourite memories of 2010 but I have forgotten to post this story...Who would have guessed that I would get a free hair makeover by Simon Koh, the handsome and charming Director of Elle Studio, located at Plaza Pelangi, Johor Bahru, Malaysia. 

This was for a seminar and hair demo for Elle Studio to expand their business to Vietnam. When a dear friend told me about it, I just had to say yes. So, I went to the studio one evening for models selection. As Simon decided that I have a very nice hair, I was chosen for the event.My friend had decided that she wasn't going to participate as she wanted to keep her hair. However, she received free hair colouring session and a digital perm worth almost MYR300.

I arrived as early as 8a.m. that day. I was wearing a black Giordano tee and a Levi's bootcut strechable pants.

Watching the other models getting ready. The salon's make up artist just had to put make up on the other models' first as I was the only one who came prepared with basic day makeup (professional models do that). Furthermore, it is safer for my sensitive skin to use other people's makeup brushes.

So, there I was, bored waiting..

Waiting to go out on stage from 10am to 12:30pm with wet hair! Can you believe that I actually waited from 8a.m. to 12:30p.m.?

Phototaking session with the other models, participants and staff..Felt weird being the only Malay in the room. There was one hair stylist who didn't know I am a Malay until he realized that I didn't respond to his chat. I could only smile to him.

I love this pic.Rasa macam pengacara TV3 pulak..

I had a great day despite being the only Malay in the room. The staff was really friendly. They even bought halal food specially for me. It was nice to be exposed to the industry. I had the chance to learn a thing or two about hair as Simon had to speak in English because all of his guests were Vietnamese.
