I updated thestickermonster blog with crystal blings blings! Prices start from RM4! Go see!
Just slightly after Chinese New Year, Brenda had this brilliant idea to wear chengsams and camwhore in the older parts of Gerogetown. In the end, it turns out nobody except Cze-Yin and I managed to find cheongsams. -_- Geram. Then they all got to wear their beautiful cocktail-type of dresses(especially Brenda) while I look neckless in my cheongsam. Bah. RM50 spent for nothing. Yea, quite cheap right my cheongsam. I won’t tell you where I bought it for fear of embarrassing myself.
Lie Yuen and Cze-Yin making use of the green wall behind.
We had a somewhat major shopping session at Queensbay before going off to Georgetown. Amanda, Mervin, Jen Hai(?) were in Penang for that weekend and so we met up! I’ve never had a Dahling all the way in this part of Malaysia before. 🙂 It was a very nice feeling.
Lie Yuen and Poh Yee managed to carry off the socialite look really well!
Yeah wei, that’s the amount of stuffs I bought. Not telling you how much I spent. I also bought pajamas for the Nuffnang party. 🙁 Wasted my money only.
Cze-Yin’s genuine reaction when she saw the amount of stuffs I bought. Everyone had a shock also because I did all that in like 40 minutes.
Before leaving Queensbay, the more hiaupor one among the rest of us had to freshen up in the toilet.
Hardly touching up. More like repainting the entire face.
All our shoppings!! Shopping at Queensbay is so fun. It’s like a blend of Sg. Wang and Midvalley. 🙂
Brenda brought us to some old part(okay, more run down) part of Georgetown for those oh so rustic photos!
This is Cze-Yin on a motorbike.
Decided to play with the colours a little..
Myself and my extremely dramatic lashes.
Poh Yee and Zhu Zen in front of some shutters.
She went in that door and she never came back. That was the end of Brenda Sim.
The grill was damn freaking dirty.. I pretended to lean on it only. Ughh.
Here’s a photo of my grandmother in the exact same position, wearing the exact same cheongsam. 😛
Two mad girls screeching in an alley.
Lie Yuen and her good attempt at looking bashful.
Weird pose, but great surroundings.
Here’s a story about the girl who has no home. She lives in a small vegetable patch behind the ruins of an old shop lot.
Brenda gets some kind of extreme satisfaction when she touches that pipe.
The maid who escaped from the big house across the street, camwhoring before running further away. I’m guessing this maid keeps a blog.
Cze-Yin attempts something similiar. Very 1960s!
See, all wear nice nice. T_T
Mad lashes they were.
Wedding photo. Haha.
I tried to get Lie Yuen to do the “I’m a Happy Young Girl So I Lean Back And Defy Gravity To Signify My Carefree Youth” pose. Not too bad an attempt. 🙂
No doubt, the locals around the area were looking at us very weirdly and we received one cat call too many. Quite embarrasing to dress to the nines and thread through back alleys and cross drains and stuff. Ugh. But for the sake of vanity art, we shall persevere. Oh right, the photo above. A kind temple caretaker and his wife invited us into their homes and it was SOOOOO rustic. It’s your typical old Nonya house packed to the brim with worthless family heirlooms and peeling paint everywhere. Makes for damn good photography. My skill is not l33t enough to capture things in that house artistically.
Brenda chatting to the caretaker and his wife in Hokkien.
Beams of sunlight came into the house at strategic places.
That’s the temple! It was really grand looking.
I’m sure they are very happy with this almost full length photos of themselves in their pretty dresses.
The little girl who is about to embark on a big adventure beyond the magical mysterious door.
Mama Bear! Hahhaha nolah, just kidding Cze-Yin. Didn’t want to spoil my story flow ma. 😛
Nice colours! I did use a sepia photo filter…so yeah, the colours are not as vibrant as how other ardent photographers would prefer it to be.
Me and my stone pet.
Why my posing so fail one. T_T
Cze-Yin as a 16-bit computer graphic. Hehe.
Cze-Yin the angel. *heavenly glow radiating from her skin*
Don’t know whether Brenda will kena struck by lighting or not for dabbing the red clothe on her cheek.
I realise that in almost all the photos, Poh Yee and Zhu Zen are together.
Big lanterns fascinate Lie Yuen.
Multiple camwhorings to save time. *pats own head for being so clever*
The insides of the temple was very elaborate.
Brenda, Cze-Yin, Lie Yuen and the popo(caretaker’s wife).
I love this picture of Cze-Yin and Brenda!
Where’s Jolene? 🙁 🙁
Inside the caretaker’s house, I spotted this! I wonder if it rocked good.
More of the house.
Haih, where’s Jolene again. 🙁
From the eyes of a stalker..
Lie Yuen layaning her love for old ruins.
We came upon an empty fire department.
Have you ever hung from the sides of a fire engine before?
I was so scared that the firemen would start sliding down that pole and knock me.
While walking around, we spotted this really unique looking house! There was a lady there who told us that the house actually belonged to her grandfather and she’s still living there to this day. It won awards for being a heritage house!
Desperate Dentists – Season 3!
*the two antagonists in the background, while the four main characters stand in front.*
A still from the latest episode of Desperate Dentist. Haha, don’t know why I’m so full of crap today. I love the lighting in this picture.
After hours of camwhoring, we rushed to Halo Cafe at Juru Autocity where my classmates’ band was playing. They call themselves Zephyr and they have had a few gigs at random coffeehouses and weddings.
Compared to the pathetic kutu rock kind of bands back in school, they can actually get the crowd really pumped and cheer along with them. Oklah, maybe we are bias since they are our classmates.
But they are seriously very talented! Andy is a maniac on the drums, Jimmy and Sett on the electric guitars(Sett is on the keyboard sometimes), Maxis on vocals and Chee Wen plays the bass.
That’s Andy and Jimmy in the midst of a song.
Adoring fans. Haha.
The songs that they covered were in English, Chinese and Malay.
Sett sang some and Maxis sang some. Andy and Chee Wen did the back up vocals. I especially loved their rendition of Bon Jovi’s It’s My Life. Really exactly like the song!
Halo Cafe was packed with dental students that night. 🙂 These are the second year juniors.
Even the first year juniors came!
We got a little distracted by our own activities at times.
Cze-Yin says I freak her out sometimes. I do wonder why.
The disgustingly adoring fan.
Not keen to share my rose tea.
Maxis trying to get the crowd to clap along with him.
A rockstar shot of Jimmy.
This is my extremely talented friend, Andy.
A rock star shot of Chee Wen. Hope he likes it and uses it as his facebook profile photo!
Sett’s rockstar photo.
The fat armed adoring fan.
Can forgive the fat arms when the eyes are nicely opened by dramatic lashes. Sigh, loving falsies so much.
A group photo of Zephyr.
Sett singing a slow number.
Jimmy trying to impress his girl. Sock Nee seemed rather nonchalant if you ask me.

Ooo, nice photos. The one with Brenda at the door is nice- the dress colour goes well with the background.
“No doubt, the locals around the area were looking at us very weirdly and we received one cat call too many. Quite embarrasing to dress to the nines and thread through back alleys and cross drains and stuff.”
Bravo, you have thick skins 😛
Babe, really love the photos of us together. I want to show it to my grandchildren (if I have any) in the future and say ‘look at amah with all these crazy girls who are amah’s good friends! ahhh..the good old days’. LOL.
PS: Yee Wei, thanks. I didn’t know erm..muddy green complements brown…does it? LOL
i mishhhhhhhhhhh malahhhhseeeeyaaaaaaaa :(((
and i realised i haven’t been here for quite some time. :p Hi Jolene!!!!!
all of you quite hardcore in camwhoring at georgetown…LOL
ahahah the caption for the last pic cracked me up 😛
and looks like you guys had great fun man! my friends not really into camwhoring… 🙁
OOh, I love the photoshoot idea! 😀
And wearing a cheongsam was definitely a good move, all your pictures had this certain charm to them! 🙂
Green goes ok with brown wat. You don’t see ppl at Taman Negara say “yer, these trees got terrible colour schemes. The trunk and leaves colours dont go together.”
Actually more like the green immediately draws attention to it in comparison with the dreary brown background.
