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
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
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
