JOECHIA02 SWEATER

Do you still remember during our primary or secondary time, our teacher will always teach us to support local products, support barang buatan Malaysia. This definitely did change my mindset because I do believe that we have to support our own local product because if we as a Malaysian does not support our own product, who will? Of course I understand that some local product is really very OMG, but if our local product is good and cheap, why not choose and support our own stuff? 

So growing up now, I think that this theory does apply to the fashion industry too. After attending KLFW 2014 last week, I realize that there are so many talented Malaysian fashion designers that create amazing collections and clothes. Their design and creativity is something that should be seen worldwide, and I believe that there will be more Malaysian designers heading towards the international path and will shine bright. A few good examples of Malaysian fashion designers that became successful internationally are Jimmy Choo, Bernard Chandran, Farah Khan, Dexter Wong, Melinda Looi and many more.





Malaysia next shining fashion designer, Joe Chia is one of my favourite local designer. If you have read my previous post about his collection at KLFW, you will definitely know how edgy and interesting his designs and cutting are. Supporting local designer, what I'm wearing is actually Joe Chia's 02 signature sweater. Having such a simple black and white colour which is his signature scheme in all collection, what I like is that it's such an easy to wear piece, finishing with symbolic vertical lines that represent Joe Chia's new line, JoeChia02.

Mr.Brian See's 21st Birthday Party @ The Curious Goat


Woohoo!! I'm a big boy now because I have finally turned 21 last week! Whenever I tell anyone that I'm only 21 years old, most of them will not believe. Many people thinks that I look 23 or 24!! T.T OMG!! Do I look that old? I still remember that I always have a baby face when I was younger, and even when I'm form 5, I still look like 14 or 15 years old. That time I feel so wtf!!I wanna look more mature. I think I should not have wish that because when I started my uni life, I changed a lot, a lot more mature. Hahahha... So back to my topic, since turning 21 is such an important milestone in our life, I decided to organize a birthday party for myself.


I was looking for a suitable venue for my party, and while I was researching high and low and I found this cafe. It made me so curious to visit that place, and I did. The Curious Goat is a cafe located at Damansara Perdana, and the interior is just simple and nice, spacious venue just suitable for my party. They also provided their chicken and meatball pasta, cupcakes and many other more finger food for my party! 






So the theme for my party is monochrome, which if you do realize on my invitation card that I posted on my social media for the giveaway contest. I actually planned for a more fun and exciting theme, which is hologram/metallic. But after proposing to my friends, most of them is like "aiyorr, what's that?", "so hard la, cannot find clothes", "wah!! sure a lot people won't follow theme de!" HAHAHAHA... So after considering on all the feedback, I was like fu*k it la! Then just make it monochrome, everyone sure got black and white clothes de. LOL... I'm wearing this glamorous shiny blazer from Dstreet.

 
Look at all the Puma door gifts. A big thank you to Puma for sponsoring so many door gifts, all of my guest can just walk home happily with awesome Puma goodies! :)

So the party started around 8 something and being a host for the first time actually made me quite nervous. I was so scared that no one will turn up, and I will just sit in an empty cafe, and at last eating all the food by MYSELF! HAHAHAHA.... I think I watched too many movies, being really dramatic recently. But luckily, I'm very grateful for everyone that attended my party, because of them it made my 21st birthday much more memorable!

 My superstar best friend, Spellman Choy!

 Darling sis, Povy Teng! To Lumi: You should be standing here too, but... tsk tsk. LOL

 The very very pretty Denise Camillia. She is the champion of 2012 Miss Astro Chinese International Pageant.

 YouTube superstar, Ming Han from TheMingThing. Always producing so many funny videos. Making me laugh like a crazy guy middle of the night. LOL

 Another YouTube superstar Dan Khoo (left) and comic book author Ernest Ng!

Mr.OOTD, Joe 曾耀祖 and Mia :) Remember to check out Joe's new song #OOTD in YouTube, and you will catch me appearing for 2 seconds. XD

So you know how much I love taking pictures and I do really think that taking pictures is the best way to entertain and dismiss boredom. Thanks to Wow Photobooth for being at my party, everyone is just so active and crazy taking loads of pictures. The best thing is, you could even get a hardcopy on the spot! It's not like the past where you need to send the film to a camera shop and wash it out, now with the innovation of technology, you could just snap a picture and the next second, your hardcopy is out. Wow Photobooth also provide props for you to make your picture much more interesting, and I would also say that they do really provide the best photobooth pictures. Don't believe? See it yourself. 



 All the props that we can use and pose! Taking pictures have not been this fun!

 All my awesome bff! And look at the third picture, we can even fit all 10 of us into the frame! Wowsome! 



 I would say that this bunch of people here are crazy drama king/queen and awesome poser! We were just born to pose this awesome! Hahahha...

This sexy bunny designer that just debuted her first collection at KLFW, Kittie Yiyi. How can I even pose normally beside her? I can't! LOL

So now tell me, how can a party have no booze? Obviously this won't happen at my party because everyone is enjoying chill Tiger and Tiger Radler beer all night long! Thanks to Tiger Malaysia for providing me with sufficient supply of beer, everyone of us could literally just drink as much as we want, drink till we drop! Hahha..



And lastly, of course it's the moment that we have all been waiting for...my birthday cake! Having an awesome cake during a birthday is very important especially when it's your 21st birthday! 



So what do you think of my birthday cake? How would you describe it? I am still very impress with the creation of this cake from Celicakes. It is exactly what I wanted and I am really very satisfied with the outcome. I actually just briefly told them on how I want it to look like through email message, and they just understand what I expected and drafted it out for me. I was actually quite unsure if they could really make it exactly like how they drafted, but when I saw the outcome, no doubt this is the best birthday cake that I have in my life!




It was an awesome night and a memorable 21st birthday filled with fun and laughter! Thanks everyone for coming and I do really appreciate every gift and wishes from you guys! Not to forget all the sponsors that supported me in making this party such a success!!

Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2014 #KLFW2014



Sorry for being MIA for quite some time because the past 2 weeks has really been very busy busy for me. I have been so busy in organizing my university charity fun run event and also my own 21st birthday party! If you do stalk my social media, you will know that I just turned 21 yesterday. I will blog about my birthday party real soon, but for now let me blog about an annual event that is highly anticipated by all fashion lovers which is Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week 2014!! It's a 5 days event from 18th June 2014 till 22nd June 2014 which happened at Pavillion Kuala Lumpur, a platform for local designers to exhibit their latest collection.


Due to my tight schedule, I was only able to attend the first day of KLFW :( BUT... day 1 featured both of my favourite designers, Joe Chia and Kittie Yiyi. I would say that Joe's collection has always caught my attention, and having this opportunity this year to sit in and enjoy the show is something that I could not ask for more. So while waiting for the show to start, of course it's pictures time!

 Hello Lumi and you're tip toe-ing! But too bad, I don't think it helps. Hahhaha...

 Finally met one of my favourite blondie model, Amanda :)

 Say hello to my "twin" sister, Sheena Liam (and also Asia Next Top Model Winner)! Hahhaa.. When I have blonde hair, many people were saying that we look alike. Since I'm no more blonde now, do we still look alike? The first thing she asked me was where is my blonde hair? I think my next colour will be blonde? :X

 Beautiful sisters, Ash and Jane. 

 With Maggi Mah, always making everyone looks perfect with her awesome make-up skills

 Yoyo Juztin Lan! It was great seeing you!

 Cherrie from DuoGigs! I'm trying to have her fierce look, but seems that I kinda fail. LOL...

Bobo and Audrey! I always feel like a giant standing beside Audrey. When 6ft meets 4ft 9'. LOL...





How can I not love Joe Chia's collection? He could always find a way to make black so interesting and "colourful"! Looking at his piece on the runway will never get me bored because from the statement headpiece, oversize cutting, monochrome scheme and fabric is just bringing noir fashion into another level. 






Another designer that you should not missed is Kittie Yiyi! It's her first debut at KLFW and I could say that she had made a loud and memorable appearance for everyone. Her collection is just like her personality, so bubbly, joyous and lively! Looking at her designs could really make you smile and feel happy, so can you imagine how will you feel if you are wearing them? Hahahha... The collection involved statement prints, colours combination, different kind of silhouettes making each piece a bold statement of individual pieces. I personally really love the bee trench coat, so cute and lively! 

So after looking at all the handsome and beautiful models, it's time now for you to look at my outfit too! Hahhaha...




   
I purposely chose a monochrome top to match Joe Chia's show but a more lively and colourful pants which I know would be relevant with Kitti Yiyi's collection. The netting jacket is something that looks casual but at the same time so edgy. It is such a perfect combination with my white singlet inside, covering some skin but showing some too. Hahhahaa... So I think guy clothes is trying to be sexy too huh now? XD Making the whole look more lively, bird prints pants would definitely work it, not forgetting my metallic snake skin clutch which is already an attention stealer!
