Tornado Rush


So many things happened this week. And event upcoming too!

First of all.. jeng jeng jeng. I was selected as one of the lucky contestants for the Mix FM Cash Tornado. I went through the Tornado already on Wednesday. Thank God it was my off days. If not, how am I to get there during workdays huh. And I am just so glad thats its over. Its nerve wracking Okay.

Was surprised on an early cool Tuesday morning by my phone vibrating beside my bed. I thought at first I was dreaming. Picked up the phone and heard my sister asked if I register for the Tornado Cash. I mumbled "Yes". Then she said excitedly and with a lil whoop, my name had been called and to call the radio ASAP. Ehh.. just wake up, fumbling to find specs and pen. Couldn't find a pen, so I just grab a marker and jotted down the radio station number on some random books strayed around the house.

Couldn't go to sleep la after that even though I feel like I really want to. But charged with adrenaline, I am better of by languishing myself in front of the TV and lulled myself with some documentary. Then was surprised by a call from my car dealer thingies asking to go to some luncheon where even more prize goodies goodness is awaiting. Eh. April is such a good month for me? It got to the point where I was thinking, "eh am I dreaming of all these calls ar". Since this is the girl who never even won a tub of cream free. (Even when I buy some expensive product the free gift is not for me. Gile tak fair to the purchasing power!). The most I got is a handful of chewing gums. Eh. Oklah tipu. I used to enter an essay in a magazine that won me a few books. But that's it! I swear!

Well, on Wednesday.. my siblings decide to drop by to the Tornado event which was on Ampang Point. Moral support la kononnye. Eiiii.. got me even more nervous. I don't do well with moral support you know. All those expected expectations make me tremble.

But I went through it ok la. It was hot that day! We had some fun. The Roadrunners are an energetic bunch. And what I walk away with? Not too shabby. Could had been better.. and I was expecting better. But hey.. out of the many who registered .. I got selected ok! And nobody would give that much of a cash! So I'm Oklah. Furthermore, the Tornado will be ending this week! Talk about Lady Luck! And my siblings all went away with some Mix FM goodies giveaway. (My brother in law got complimentary meal at a fine French restaurant). I got some extra extra moolah to spend. *GRIN* Very happy. Dance a lil jig. Can shop a bit in Singapore this weekend. Yeay!

Got some photos to post. (And I was thinking to post a photo of me with DJ Sham together in this post. He's kinda cute and very nice). But really lazy in transferring pics and stuff and uploading. Maybe I will post all of those together went I get back from Singapore.

Ohh. I can't wait to get to Singapore this weekend. But.. I still dreading that I may had not packed everything yet. Phantom of the Opera! Here I come!

p/s: Ah yes. I feel my writing kinda sucks. That happened when there's load of things going on and I get tired. So then my writing get even more sucks-er

The trick to actually getting freebies at those posh cosmetics counters (read: Shiseido, Estee Lauder and the like) is to dress really well and come by when there's a dry spell of at the end of the month. Those counter girls are dying to make a sale, they'll give you all sorts of freebies! I've walked away with samples of Lancome perfume and Clinique travel kits. Heheh.

Btw lucky you getting moolah~ Money makes me happy. Haha. Ok ok maybe not, its the shopping opportunities I guess! I say shop till you drop!

Oh,don't forget to drop by Vivocity while you're in Singapore. They've got everything under one roof. The signboards there can be confusing though, last time I was there it took me 30mins to find La Senza. Hope they've fixed it, turns out I wasn't the only one complaining! And for food, checkout the Banquet foodcourt at the basement level, the fried carrot cake is awesome! All halal btw :)

Have fun!

Haha.. unfortch my interest is divided. So there's tonnes of things I would love to do with the money. Sigh. But if you won 1 million, it would not be enough..

Hahaha.. well that's a good tip. But I usually will be tempted to buy even more things. So I usually steer clear from those.

Oh.. my main purpose is to see Phantom. Shopping is just a far off 2nd thing in the list. Shopping pon at Esplanade je.. (for Phantom goodies ) Didn't go anywhere except Funan. Haha. I am also an IT Geek at heart... .

But the food is .. itu la kan. Tak sempat jelajah cari food. Just eat whatever at nearest mamak.

Takpe. Lain kali! Wedding things, gi Singaporelah!

Pics? Ah yes.. sure.. coming..

I have this affliction of really lazy in uploading pics.

Serena C is that bad? Well.. the morning team is kinda merciless and sometimes their so called bickering annoyed me. Compared to Shaz and Richard.
