resident evil : retribution


hello x

the premier of resident evil: retribution

i won a pair of club tickets to the premier of this movie, which scheduled to be out by September 13. honestly, when i read that @benjern was to give away five pairs of club tickets, i was pretty reluctant to actually give it a try. but it so happened that the second he gave the cue to tweet him, it appeared on my timeline. so i copied, pasted, and tweeted away without giving it a second thoughts. 10 minutes later, ben announced that i was one of the winners.

right after i got the tweet saying that i won, i immediately asked a close friend of mine to see if she’d wanna come with me. she did. despite having to not watch the trailer yet, or even learn about the value of a club ticket, i was head over heels. as days turned to hours and hours to minutes, i got more and more excited, so excited we actually went in 30-minutes earlier (thanks to the instructions on the ticket!) and immediately regretted after knowing that they were gonna keep our phones (and laptop!) due to security reasons. hahah

say hello to my date! 😀

i must say, this is one of the most exciting experience i’ve ever gone through. i mean, how many times in your life you get to actually win something? haaaaa 😀 though i have never watched the first 4 movies of the resident evil series, i (actually) enjoyed having to go through the suspense, getting scared the heck out of my brains and knowing that my friend enjoyed herself as well. COME AT ME YO FREAKISHLY-LOOKING ZOMBIES

Celebrating Malaya’s 55th Independence


Last Friday I took part in the glorious celebration of Malaya’s 55th Independence day. Although as a Sarawakian that means almost nothing to me, (other than the fact without Malaya, Malaysia wouldn’t exist; but let’s not forget the Federation consists of Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak), I joined it and do my part by representing the biggest tribe in Sarawak during the oath-taking ceremony.

It was an amazing experience for me as it was my first time putting on the traditional Iban costume, known as ngepan iban (hand-made by my grandmother!), as well as taking part in the celebration alongside my sister and my mother. The whole experience was overwhelming towards the end of the morning as I was complimented by the people from all over the country as well as the world as they are fascinated by the colourfulness of the costume. I had to stop every 5-10 seconds every time I started walking away from the dataran because there would always be a family or two that wouldn’t want to miss a chance to take a picture with me. Some wouldn’t even let go until they’ve managed to take a good picture. hah! #5secondsfame :p

Overall, I had fun. If I ever get the chance to do something like this again, I’d definitely would. Nothing beats the feeling of knowing that you can represent Sarawak wherever you go. Cheers! x
