Bestnya Bersama

Finally got to chill out with my girl friends last Saturday,
thanks to Samsung GALAXY A's Bestnya Bersama 'A' Music Festival.
We had an 'A'wesome Saturday enjoying 'A'wesome music performances with 'A'wesome company.

We arrived earlier at Bukit Jalil National Stadium to hang out with the artistes.
 Some of them are our friends, we're so proud of them.
Hot FM, One FM and Fly FM were there as well.
Very entertaining, we were playing games.
The concert goers got to win some prizes and merchandises too!

Using the Samsung GALAXY A5 for a wide selfie.
Yup, a wide selfie with part of the A-Team!
Meet Shawn Lee the beatboxer, Leonard from An Honest Mistake and Venice Min!
It's so easy to hold and to take wide selfies with the Samsung GALAXY A5
all thanks to its slim and light full-metal design. You should try it for yourself!

I dressed up for that day.
Casual as usual, that's my style (:

Shoe game with my girls.

They were giving out freebies and were interacting with the crowd before starting the show.
 It was more like a get-together, a gathering.
I think the idea of it was very nice!

Shawn Lee opened the show with his amazing beatboxing skill.
Followed by many talented local artistes.
Paperplane Pursuit, An Honest Mistake, KeQing, Najwa Latiff, Liyana Fizi, Izzue Islam+
Faizal Tahir was the guest artist for the event.
How cool is that? So many girls went bonkers for him, even the guys! Haha!

Thanks Samsung GALAXY A for the 'A'mazing night of Bestnya Bersama 'A' Music Festival!

Late Night Thoughts : Be Brave

Just watched Insurgent with a friend.
The movie was okkkkkkkk.
I like that part where Tris said something like
"I want to be brave but I'm not brave, I just pretend to be brave,
I want others to think that I'm brave but I really am not brave"

When we walked out of the theatre, my friend was saying
"Why is it all about heroins nowadays?
Like the girls being the hero and save the world?"

I looked at him like this =,=
"Cause, we koool like that!!!"

He was dropping me back to my store.
He had to make a big round to drop me at the door.
That particular street was so jammed up.
I was like "just drop me here, I'll walk across the alley, you don't need to make a turn."
"Nooooooo, who would let you walk across that dark alley?"
"Erm, I do that sometimes."
"It's too dangerous."
"Come on, I am Tris!"
"You? Tris? Not even close. She can protect herself, you can't!"
"What? I am Tris, I'm a superwoman."
"Ok, maybe the thinking side, you have a mind of a superwoman, but physically..."
"Well, I can kick their balls, lol."
Hmmm, maybe I should start going for taekwando classes.

Self protection?
There's no such thing as self protection for girls.
Look at Tris, she keeps pushing herself off the cliff to save people around her.
She surrenders herself just to save her loved ones.

We also had a GBGTVxUrbanDecay event today.
It was pretty crazy, like, we were actually there to INSPIRE and influence girls.
Talk about being successful, how to achieve this and that.
What are we proud of, define success and so on.
It was crazy.
You know, I'm not even successful, it was just crazy.
I hope I gave good speeches and I hope I influenced or inspired some of them in the room.
Just lotsa gibberish, I just spoke what was on my mind and I tried to entertain the crowd.
You get the nerves talking to young girls looking at you and listening to you.
I was nervous, although I didn't show that.

Another part of Insurgent that inspired me...
(不只是看一個戲 那麼多感想 ............)
About amity, about Tris not forgiving herself.
Amity includes self forgiving and forgiving others.

I haven't found a way to forgive myself.
Just one simple mistake. I let someone in and got my heart completely crushed.
I just don't know why, why such a small thing gave me such a big impact.
It could be nothing to anybody else, I don't know why such a big impact on me.
It's me, myself, it's not about that person anymore, it's about me dealing with my failure.
It's crazy, it's annoying, it's irritating, I don't want to feel this way, I hate it.
It's like I'm ok when people let me down now.
I don't know, I just hate it that I let myself to be let down in the first place.
Sometimes, I feel so scared that, I'm afraid that I'll never get over,
that I MIGHT never get over this.
I read this quote, it says you don't get over it, you just get to where it doesn't bother you so much.
I do not want that, I don't want that.
I want to completely get over it.
I might not get over it, still, I'll eventually get through it but I'll never be the same anymore.
I always ask why, why me, why did I even let this happen.
 I don't want to be different, I don't want to feel different.
I feel like my dignity, my self respect, my self confidence, they are all so thrashed.
I can't even take compliments.
You know how sometimes people are very nice and they compliment you.

Just gotta be brave, be so brave, just gotta brave it.
I've got to find ways to cope with it.
Music, that's why I'm so passionate about music.
Sometimes I laugh at myself fangirling over Ed Sheeran so crazily.
I don't know, I've become so dependent on music to heal my soul.

Can't wait.
Can't wait for the day till it doesn't bother me anymore.
Just can't wait anymore.

My friend just sent me this picture.
Someone took photo of me stressing over work.
Yup, some might think my life is glamorous but no.. this is what it is.

Brave the shit out of yourself, girls.
Don't even know what that means but just be brave.

Song of this late night.
Slow Dancing in a Burning Room by John Mayer.
So good, so good, crazy tune, especially the sound of the guitar when it started playing.
Romantic but sad tune, what mixed feelings.

Meeting Ed Sheeran

I don't even know where to begin with.
My brain isn't really functioning.
This is me now.

Yup, I met Ed Sheeran.
Yup, everyone knows that I love his music and I love him.
Yup, my dream came true.
First and foremost, I sincerely thank Hotlink for rewarding the true fans.
Thanks to Hotlink for the opportunity to meet Ed Sheeran.
I was happy enough, so happy when he announced that he'd be performing live in KL.
I bought my tickets on the release date.
Couldn't believe that I got the chance to meet him.

I've been waiting for this day, this day, 16th March 2015.
This day marks one of the happiest day in my life.

 I didn't take enough pictures to blog because I was constantly filming.
Thanks to those who came forward to ask for a picture with me.
There was this reader from Indonesia who took a picture with me...
She flew here with her boyfriend just for Ed, cray!
There was also this girl who asked for a picture, I told her to wait but then I lost her.
If you're reading this, I'm sorry, I couldn't find you!
Thanks for supporting good music and yes, it's worth all the effort and money.
Cause, Ed is that awesome (:

I got the Meet and Greet pass and the backstage pass.

 Hotlink sure knows how to make us feel special!
Check my "X" themed nail art, done specially just for today!

 Sheerios who won Meet and Greet pass and backstage pass from Hotlink.
Gawd, I love em Sheerios, we are family (:

Look at the crowd.
Sheerios started queuing up at 6am.
I admire their dedication, you go, Sheerios!

Most precious picture in my iPhone is this selfie.
I peeked and I saw him when I was waiting for my turn.
Then, I started to lose my cool.
I paused at the door for a bit until he said "come here".
I didn't say anything to him, I just stared at him the whole time.
I didn't even take any pictures using my camera, just my iPhone.
I was so stunned and I wasted the chance to speak to him.
It was... crazy.

I can't express what I'm feeling, I'm still very overwhelmed.
So, I made a video to sorta "document" the whole day.
I used my heart and soul to edit this video.
Somehow, I feel embarrassed about how sensitive and passionate I am, fangirling at Ed, lol.
He's the only one.
All these years, I've been spreading his music and now, he's so big and successful, proud of him.
I just want to say that I'm really passionate about music I like.

Do watch it, feel the love and spread the love, Sheerios! (:

Daphne Charice x One Direction live in Singapore

First and foremost, I want to thank Hotlink Malaysia and Sony Music Malaysia for this experience.
It was s fantastic Hotlink One Direction "On The Road Again Tour 2015" Busaway experience.
Singapore this time.

The coolest One Direction bus that attracted crazy attention.

Departed from Menara Maxis to Studio M, Singapore.
 I was exhausted from work.
The games and excitement kept me awake though.
We played games on the bus.
Everyone was so sporting and fun.

Denise, giving out One Direction merchandises.

I thought I was a #directioner.
Well, obviously, I'm not even close.
The Directioners are crazyyyyyy, they are so hardcore, haha.
I listen to One Direction, yes, I do.
Their songs are catchy, lol.
Not to forget that they're extremely good looking.
*wiping off saliva*
Used to like Zayn the most, well, he's very happy with Perrie, haha.
Harry or Niall? Sexy hair or sexy Irish?
No, can't choose, I want all five.

Finally arrived at Studio M Hotel.

I only had 3 hours of sleep before waking up for this.
My skin condition was suddenly so bad, especially my forehead.
Uh, you can see it in the video.

Sunlight is always the solution.

Check that bright happy smile.
You guys know well that I hardly smile showing my crooked teeth, haha.

Meet Karena, best companion of the trip.

Karena and me rolling Uber style to the concert!

Everyone calls me DAPH-NE(deaf-ni).
I really nearly went deaf in the stadium.
The fans' screaming was.. outrageous?
It was out of this world.
Absolutely crazy.

Hi, I have carrots?

Liam and Zayn.

My baby Irish.

What's better than Harry dancing?
You're welcome.

As I promised, more videos.
It was all a rush but I hope you like it, I tried my best.
Sending love to the Directioners!

Been working #alldayerrday...
Was thinking about the great times I've had in Singapore.
FMFA is happening in Singapore next month, so tempting, so tempting...
I might just take two days off and... You never know!!!

I normally take flights to Singapore, since it's near.
Just last month I drove to Singapore.
Custom officers are friendly, procedures were simple.
As long as you follow the rules, you'll be fine.
It was an amazing experience driving to Singapore.

It was so exciting and new to me that I had to snap this picture at custom for memory.
Drove Jane and another friend.

Back to the unforgettable ZoukOut, sipping champagne overlooking the city and...

Nothing beats the street food.

Oh yes, so many varieties.
From char kway teow to yee mee, pan mee, claypot, hot pot or sizzling pan, whatever you name it.
Uh, the chicken rice, chicken riceeeeeeeeee.
I don't know about you but for me, Singapore has the best chicken rice!

Well yeh, you may say the food we get here and Singapore have not much difference,
but you really can't say the same about the taste,
especially those local dishes with recipes practiced over generations.
You really gotta get there to experience yourself.

 This is me when I'm in Singapore.

When people think about Singapore, people think about the luxury, the extravagant lifestyle but
the street food, the roots, the culture, the simplest little things never go away.
And it's always nice to see some familiar culture in a foreign country.
We just love food, don't we? Who doesn't?
I usually stay in hotels whenever I visit Singapore so haha, I will tapao char kway teow
from hawker centres up to my hotel room for supper.
Sometimes I will have an ice cream sandwich while exploring the city. 

You'll always have the hardest decisions to make at the food court.
You don't know what to choose because you feel like you want some wantan mee
but the satay smells good, the laksa is calling your name, lol.
Well, the good thing is, eat now, tapao more for later, haha.

Another great thing about Singaporean hawker food - high standard of hygiene.
Food is prepared hygienically, super safe for consumption, satisfies taste buds and also CHEAP.

Now there's an exclusive promotion by Far East Hospitality where you can enjoy up to 20% off
best flexible rate and S$30 worth of dining vouchers when you book a room at
between 4th March to 30th April 2015.
Just key in the code : FMSG

Can't wait to visit Singapore again and eat all the sinfully good local food!
Next month hopefully :P
