Here’s another event that I wish to highlight, as KLFW 2015 is around the corner, here are some goodies for your to expect! Last month, Airasia launched the Runway Ready Designer Search, and in conjunction of the KLFW RTW 2015, 10 finalists will be given an opportunity to showcase their designs on the runway this year.

Aireen Omar, CEO of AirAsia Berhad launched this one-of-a-kind designer search together with the Founder of Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week Ready To Wear (KLFW RTW), Andrew Tan at a press conference today.

Aireen Omar commented, “AirAsia believes in the development of young talent. We have always been heavily involved in growing young talent, especially in sports. This new project aims to support young fashion designers — to identify the talents oftomorrow, and to reward and support them with the highest form of exposure and opportunities available in the fashion industry. We look forward to debut 10 young aspiring designers at the upcoming KL Fashion Week on 16th August 2015.”

“Some may ask – why fashion? Our answer is – why not? AirAsia’s vast route network and connectivity, especially in the Asean region is a catalyst for many fashion industry players to easily create a wider market for themselves; source for variety of materials; meet more people to exchange ideas; visit different cities in the region to experience the different cultures and draw inspiration; the possibilities are endless! We are excited to collaborate with the KLFW RTW team, and AirAsia is ready to be part of the next rising designer’s journey to the top,” added Aireen Omar.

Meanwhile, here are some of the pictures take during the launch!

Aside from the purpose of the event, I would also like to highlight the event bits and pieces. The Airasia marketing team always put out great effort in giving the best, no matter the venue, the food or the hospitality, they always ensure us, the guest and media are being well pampered and well fed, lol! Honored to be a part of the Airasia blogger community #aabc

Fantasy Tour 2015 Wonderland Party

Jun 4

Here’s what you missed last Saturday! Went back home for few days, and needless to say, being with my awesome friends, I’m always privileged to attend the hottest party in town, and for last week, it was the Wonderland Fantasy Tour in KL live!

Apart from the good music, here’s my formula of a good night out! Good vibes + Good Friends = Good Time

No major event, celebration, or party is complete without these babies!

It’s my first time attending the Fantasy Tour, and this time round, they invited 24 Herbs, Stephanie Cheng 鄭融& Hazel Tong 唐紫睿. I wasn’t expecting much, but they were awesome! They literally turned KL LIVE into the city’s hottest dance bunker!

Osulloc Myeongdong

I think it was some time last year when I was working in Busan, I discovered about Ossuloc. Well, but good news now, they are everywhere! It’s founded in Jeju island, and Osulloc is actually a tea house, though people often mistake it as cafe, lol. Anyways, if you are happened to be in Seoul, and you’re looking for a place to chill or a nice “cafe” to enjoy a cup of drink, I strongly recommend Ossuloc. You can forget about angel-in-us, cafe bene, holly cafe all the mainstream ones (then again I must say they are coffee shop, but if you don’t mind to have drink other than coffee), Osulloc is a good place, with warm and comfy environment.  (Nope, they didn’t pay me to say this, but I have to say all the friends I brought there, they love it!)

Osulloc specialized in their green tea, so if you’re there for the first time, I would strongly recommend – King of Freddo (with a scoop of green tea ice cream, green tea pound cake and akuzi bean), It’s priced about 8,500 won.

However, my personal favorite  is their Hallabong Tangerine O Fredo. It’s something more refreshing and local, the Hallabong, a fat and juicy citrus only available in Jeju, is what made this drink special, priced at 7,500 won. Not to sweet, and with a hint of bitterness (in a good way) from the dried tangerine, topped with the soy ice-cream (if i’m not mistake >.<), it is divine.

With my new friend, Shi wei, I really can’t tell if she’s korean or malaysian when I met her the first time over Jamie’s Birthday, lol. And I like how she confuses the shop keepers in the cosmetic street in myeongdong XD, they didn’t know how to approach her, not knowing if they should speak in korean or chinese, lol.

Describe, don’t show.

May 15

For awhile, i kinda forgot that i actually have a blog, one that i used to write for my everyday life.

There are many time that I wish to pen down my thoughts, but for the longest time, I do not feel motivated anymore to keep this space alive. I think I kinda lost it, when I found out most of my pictures and part of my articles I have posted are gone because of some “i-still-don’t-know-why”. May be it was the lack of update or backing up. But anyways, it was kinda saddening, because I have put so much hard work and time in writing them; feels like a part of me left me. LOL. Ok cut the dramatic shit.

Anyways, in the past, I stressed more on pictures, and my writings are minimal (pointless, sometimes), which at that time I paid more attention into showing rather than describing. Also, it came to me that no one really cares about what you’ll write, they just wanna SEE what’s going on around you and scroll through pictures.

But lately, I realized the main function of a blog – it is really to express your feelings and thoughts rather just selcas. Why should I go through all the trouble in editing and transferring pictures, when I can easily edit them and share them on my phone? Via instagram, fb fan page or whatever, lol, right? And, who cares if anyone is reading or not, isn’t it better when there’s no one reading? So I can share my dirty little secrets here? Hah.

Oh well. And one thing for sure, my blog is more neutral now, because I’ve stopped taking advertorials for awhile. I thought this space needed a little bit of detox. With all those events, advertorials going on in the past, i was kinda strayed from keeping the personality of this blog. Or rather, I was confuse with why I had this space. This may be a surprise for you, but I have been having MANDYLOGY since 2007, and for 9 years I have had this blog. Really, that’s also one of the hardest decision to keep this going or end it for good.

Guess for now, I will keep it.
