Hello rockareaders. I wanted to just say "let the pictures do the talking" and simply post up all the pictures of my recent gathering for Kiehl's product launch and just that. But too bad, I love to talk. So I shall talk in between pictures. Ngeh.

I'd like to congratulate the early chicks. Birds. Whatever. Thanks for fighting with the bad weather and the bad traffic to be there for me :') And and so sorry for those who couldnt make it due to bad weather. Hurricane Katrina wtf.

Jihan! Who came and drank and ate and rushed off to Rolex's cocktail party.

Me pretending to show the board full of pictures but secretly showing off my skin after using Kiehl's product hohoh. Oi oi everybody has bad angle okay. Kehkehkeh.

My pocket full of sunshines!

This is when I had enough of their candid faces so I asked them to pose.

Our shot without Adeline. Look! Look! We are colour coordinated, eventhough there wasnt like a real theme to the gathering. Hehe we're secretly soul sisters. Even Adeline who came later wore black. Sobs :')

Random pictures of people mingling and getting skin consultations.

Nik Faris wah wah wah.

I did a speech on the product that Ive tried and tested (lab mice wtf) and at the end of my speech I told them they stand a chance to bring home Kiehl's product worth RM180 when they strike a pose with Mr.Bone. Modelly event must have modelly contest maa.

Mr.Bone eagerly waiting with a smile.

PDAing Mr.Bone.

Apparently flirting with Mr.Bone, not choking.

Lisa and Maisyarah.
Who won third place with this shot. Now this is pure affection.

Went all they way with Mr.Bone's chain necklace and shopping bag.

Those who didnt make the cut.

Thank you everyone for making it happened! Your support means alot to me. And Kiehl (-_-") Wouldnt trade it for the world. SAYANG KORANG SEMUAAA HUREI!

I hate motorcyclist driving in the rain and losing control and sliding towards in front of your car and falling on the road. It happens you know. To me. Twice. It feels awkward like of course it's not your fault, you didnt even touch him and he falls right in front of you and to wait for him to get back on his motorcycles takes forever and the awkward silence is awful and you look at him and wait for him to look at your pity stare. I SWEAR TO GOD ITS KILLING ME.

Rambutan, Pulasan, Manggis, Durian

I'm so tired but I cant complain. Since this is what I want and this is what Ive chosen. Just got back from a shoot for another fashion spread. I love photoshoots because you get to wear clothes that you would have never picked off the rack, but once you wear it, it actually looks good on you, and now that you know, you'll go to the store and get the same thing as what you wore for the shoot :) And today is no different. The sponsor were Topshop and all the other brands of the same company like Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins etc. Usually I dont even go into these stores except Tospshop because Topshop has Kate Moss sizes, but after experiencing the other two brands myself, I'm loving it. But I need to find myself some large clips so that the clothes would fit nicely, just like at the photoshoots, sarcasm.

Today I met this awesome make up artist called Najib. He used to work as a steward but he quit and went to Indonesia for make up course because his real passion is make up. Wow. And and all of his make up stuff is brand new because some bastard broke his car and stole his large fancy make up bag, the one with light bulbs and all, and he was complaining because he said that he has lost his identity because people always call him Najib Mentol. And now its just gonna be Najib which is not commercial and sounds like my uncle's name.

I know the feeling. I broke my sunglasses few days ago and now I feel less of a model. I need to get a new one because you know how it is, you have few pairs of jeans or few handbags or few sunglasses of different shades, but you'll only wear one forever, the one that is really close to your heart and what makes you, YOU. I need to go back to KL Tower and buy the exact sunglasses I just broke so that I'll be the same Hanis again (alasan). Who buys sunglasses from KL Tower T_T I know I damn touristy, you dont have to say twice.

Yes everyone is talking about the Tongue In Chis launch party, only because its so awesome. But I didnt take any pictures, okay I did, then it turned out real ugly because my face looked so tired, so I stopped. Why I looked so tired? Because I just got back from my kampung!

Poor Imran who got sick just in time for the kampung trip.

This is why we're so excited! Fruits season!

Okay I know from the picture look like damn chokiah got sikit je buah at the pokok, but actually got alot, and yeah whatever semangat gila explain. Anyway we reached kampung quite late already so we slept really late (now semangat trying to explain why I woke up late the next day, why am I like this T_T). So yes, I woke up late the next day, and I woke up to this:

My God, My God, look! Haha team work.
You can see from the picture that they work together to hit the tree (so that fruits will fall to the ground) with a long wooden stick (galah).

Picking up the fallen rambutans.

Anyway I'd like to take this op to congratulate
Audy for giving birth to tikus makmal (lab mice).

Model's skincare regime

Backstage Times Square, 16. 08. 08.

Ask any of my model friends, and they would agree that one's skin condition is very important in booking jobs. Okay apart from height, facial features, and body proportion of course, bebeh. As a model, your skin have to be in tip top condition. Why? Because photoshopping takes time. And and omg if your skin is bad, you will, I mean, YOU WILL horrify other models because make up artist only use one make up sponge for all the model's faces blegh. And even if you only do runway, your skin still have to be flawless (except for unavoidable occasional break outs) because when the stage light hits your face, no matter how thick your foundation or concealer is, your pores and acne scars will outshine the dress youre wearing, and of course, you. Okay I know your mind is still thinking about the evil make up sponge I mentioned earlier, but lets move on shall we (with more on these sponges!)

More reasons why we, models, need to take care of our skin like its our baby. Omg talking about babies, I want a skin like baby's bottom hohoh. Okay sorry I shall proceed now. Because like I mention ealier, evil make up sponges gasp, we always meet them, for photoshoots, runways or events. So we must cleanse, tone and mosturise properly once we get back from work. Okay its wrong for me to blame on just the sponges because make up brushes and other applicators are evil too, but lets focus on mother of all evil okay. Reason number two, because our skin get tired real easily since our job consists of make up make up and more make up! Dont get me wrong, I love getting made up by different people everyday, like you know, you sit there, and wait for the outcome (different outcome everytime!). How exciting is that cause like usually if the make up person is ugly, sure your make up will turn out ugly wtf why am I revealing all these? But yeah its so much fun and while your make up is being done, theres like a team of people waiting to do your hair, yes, feel like a majesty. Okay reason number three, late night events. We have to attend late night events (okay actually its not late night, its at night, but untill late night, and of course you'd stay till late when a bunch of your dingdong dancing friends is around) and that would further enhance our eyebags or dark eye circles. No amount of foundation could cover this baby up. And obviously, the next morning we have to wake up like super duper early to rehearse for shows inside mall before the the mall is open (because they want to surprise all the customers with the choreography so must rehearse fast before they start coming in errr?).

Trusted brand for my skin is Kiehl's skin range! This, I shall recommend to all the models out there (and non models too because deep down inside, everybody is a model, please lah weh, obvious okay your Facebook pictures all hohoh). Anyway Kiehl will be launching its new range of skin care which is The Ultra This And That (okay the name is not that cool lah, why am I making everything sound so cool, because I'm cool, that must be it, but the toner is Ultra Toner and the mosturiser is Ultra Mosturiser, yeah you get the idea). So I'll be having the Kiehl's product launching party (get your invites people!) this coming Wednesday, 28th August 2008. Where? Right here at Kiehl's Pavilion:

And you can get free skin consultation prior to
the launching at their own consultation counter!
