I totally grabbed this first pic from Diana's blog entry. Click here for more pictures and how the outing went!
I was such a dumbo, I brought my camera out, hoping to take lotsa fun pictures and have a chance to say "look at the lens" Chantana style, but failed miserably when I left the SD card in my other computer at work. ARGH! Imagine my frustrations as I took out my camera while I was in the cashier Q (yes I bought something from the new collection ), wanting to ask Chantana how the flash settings work etc etc when I saw the message "NO MEMORY CARD". What a boo.
So yup, I don't have pictures of the actual outing, but those of you who have read the updates from the other onsugarettes must have a very vivid and detailed update by now.. seeing as it is already Sunday (how time flies!) and I am only starting to ramble about it. :p It all seems so 5 minutes ago!
First of all, I was super super happy and overwhlemed by all the goodies which were given to me by the lovely ladies~
I finally got to meet Michelle and Kim, whom I have recently 'spreed' with, and I have been reading Kim's blog for sometime, her haul entries are mega awesome! She brought along the nail polishes (my haul entry on that later on), and thank you, Kim for organising this! And Michelle (icefrost) is our MAC Give me Liberty of London spree organiser. Really admire them for having the courage and taking the effort to do these sprees, I can't imagine the amount of tracking and admin involved in sprees! :)
Also got to meet Gwen, she is so cute and petite, and her face is amazingly fresh and flawless (no makeup I think!) *jealous* I must check out her ongoing sprees on Live Journals.... if I can get round to it, and navigate my way around there. :)
I also met Vion, I was saying hi to her at MAC, and she was so cheerful and bubbly, and the first thing she said was "I am a fan" -- seriously?! I feel starstruck! Haha... she is so friendly and warm, and well, I think you should totally start your own blog, and share your shopping raving too! :) Also, your clean and flawless skin after day's work is really worthy of my envy, your hair which seems to fall so neatly, I can never get mine to stay in one place for long.
And Debbie who came and went like a flash... you are so sweet, and I wish we had more time to hang out! And you look super cute, with your outfit, and shoes (yup, I scanned your footwear! hahhaha).
Not forgetting Wirda who came and went like a flash too, but not before we raved a bit about lash extensions. She was rocking a set of pretty full ones, but you rock them really well!! :)
Azza came too, though I didn't get to talk much to you at all.. next time next time!
And the biggest regret is that Linn had to cancel out.... she was so looking forward to the outing, and the 2 times I talked to her at work, we were raving about how fun it would be to meet up again and all.. le sigh!
The outing was totally happening, and as with bigger group outings, I guess we are a little more 'used to' having our conversations cut short, interrupted, hijacked, etc etc by now...I hope you all didn't feel weird about that, cos I think I felt very strange initially, rude almost, if my attention was suddenly diverted in the middle of a statement, or we suddenly had to switch topics etc ... yup..
To the rest whom I have had the pleasure of meeting before, you know who you are (Janet, Munirah, Diana, Sarah, Chantana, Amy, Clara, Kas, AB) so, yup.. WOOT!
I shan't go much more into the outing...you can click on the links at the end of this post to read about what happened that night.
This is that SHOW ME THE CAKE moment... after a couple of days of celebrating my birthday and also experience from celebrating Sarah's birthday quite recently, it is very easy to develop skin thick enough for me to know that Amy and Chantana went off scheming (at the icing room no less), and Diana was carrying something... and so I had to burst out that line in a Jerry Maguire moment. SHOW ME THE CAKE! LOL.
This is what I ended up with.. as I was re-sizing the pictures, I realised there are at least 8 presents in total. I really want to say a very very sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to everybody for the kind thoughts, and just being so FAB! Not just the presents themselves, but the gesture, the thought, the everything. :)
The following pictures appear in no particular of merit or preference, I lurve them all!
Last week, Sarah wanted to give me a Bobbi Brown eyeshadow, because she said it is soooo me.. and it turned out she gave me a huge bunch of pigment samples, a couple of lipsticks, fake lashes, etc along with such a sweet note!! Thanks Sarah!!! Then she got me 2 packs of the nail art stickers at Nature Republic during the outing.
