Squeezing in a quick blogpost!

I am not sure whether any of you noticed this, but AZORIAS and I were featured in New Straits Time in early October. :)

Thank you NST for giving us the front page and a full centrespread! :3
You can click *here* for the online article.

I was looking a little worse for wear because my car was stalled the night before, and I had to wake up extra early on the day of the interview to get my car towed! (Blogged about it vaguely here.) I almost had to miss the interview!

My outfit for the day:

Black cutout blouse: AZORIAS
Black floral print pants: Korea
Silver choker: Stolen from one of my sisters (don't even know which one wtf)
Perspex bangle: H&M
Navy studded leather bracelet: Korea
Black cutout pointed heels (not shown): Zara

I don't have a picture of the back of my top, 'cause obviously it would be real awkward to have the photographer take pictures of me with my butt facing the world wtf, but here's one from the website:

Just realized I own the entire set worn by our model, including this happy sunshine yellow 3D floral appliqué skirt (*click*), nguek nguek nguek.

By the way, I have something important to clarify... The article has gotten my age wrong!!! T_____T

Since the article has been released, I have gotten about 40% of congratulatory messages, and the remaining 60% are digs on my age, including:

" I'm so proud of you... And the fact you're now older than me!!"

"Hui Wen you are 28 ah!!?!!!"

" LOL.. 28.. OUCH!!!!!... they should have reduced it instead.."

"Congrats my love ! on your success and being 28"

Sigh. Thanks guys, thanks.

Giving you guys sad apologetic eyes 'cause I know I haven't blogged for some time. *shuffles shiftily*

If you follow me on Twitter, you will know that I just got back from Korea over the weekend! All my pictures are in my boyfriend's camera, so I am only going to post some pictures of an outfit I wore for a business meeting:

This is one of my more casual business outfits. Floral print dress from Topshop, white blazer is coming soon on AZORIAS.

Better look at my dress. Love this dress to bits! It has a buttoned-up back which was a b*tch to wear by myself FML.

Navy floral print dress with buttoned-up back: Topshop
White blazer: AZORIAS
Gold geometric/ ball necklace: Korea
Black suede pumps with tortoiseshell heels: Topshop

Thought it'd be interesting to show you guys a more 'corporate' side of me as compared to my usual outfits! :)

30 Sexy Years.

Sponsored post

Everytime I flip open glossy fashion magazines, my eyes are drawn to the luscious GUESS ads—. The
curvaceous bodies, big hair, full lips—the sensuous bombshell look that is so synonymous with the
GUESS brand.

Paris Hilton was the face of GUESS back in 2004, do you girls remember that?

And going through back the older GUESS campaigns, you will see even more familiar faces:

Did any of you know that Drew Barrymore has also modeled for GUESS before?

And who can forget the iconic Claudia Schiffer ads!

Trivia: Did you know Claudia Schiffer had her first Guess spread 23 years ago?

Over the years, GUESS has launched the careers of some of the most notable supermodels and
celebrities of today, e.g. Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova, Alessandra Ambrosio etc. The sexy yet
playful models practically demand your attention, and over the years, it is clear that GUESS has
maintained the same covetable raw, sensual energy in its ads and its products.

How many years, you are asking?

30 sexy years, that is what!

In conjunction of its 30th birthday, GUESS threw an impressive birthday bash at KLCC, whereby the
Holiday 2012 Collection and limited edition Tiesto Capsule Collection was also revealed!

With Ringo.

Happy Birthday, GUESS!

It was slightly emotional for me to see the ’30 Sexy Years!’ sign flashing at the top of the runway. Let
me share a little secret with you girls-- GUESS was the first brand that I was really passionate about! I
still remember lusting over all the GUESS bags, and negotiating with my mom to reward me with the
newest GUESS bags if I do well in school. And don’t get me started on the jeans—I went totally crazy
over the world-famous triangle logo. :)

Amber Chia was clad in a slinky low-back dress from GUESS’ latest collection.

Also seen were Andrea Fonsenka and the Miss Malaysia alumni.

Flaunting our GUESS goodie bags proudly.

I am so crazy in love with the new 2012 Holiday collection by GUESS, you girls! All my favorite
elements in one beautiful collection:

Print-on-print done to perfection, especially in the classic houndstooth print.

A vintage Americana feel is exuded for the men’s collection, for example, knit cardigans. (love the
subtle houndstooth print here too!)

Loving the mixing of rich textures—silk blouses with lace accents AND with a fur coat. Yummy.

Wispy dress in a fluid print.

Another classy silky blouse.

Adore the styling of this entire outfit! Must get my hand on that distressed Brittney jeans.

As mentioned earlier, the exclusive limited edition Tiesto Collection was also released on that day.
Tiesto’s inspiration from electronic music and dance culture merged seamlessly with the free-spirited,
adventurous and sexy signature GUESS style, and the result was skinny-fit jeans, graphic print tees,
leather jackets and coated twill jackets, all trimmed with the custom GUESS/ Tiesto logo in black and
electric blue.

Some of the looks that caught my eye:

Two things that I am eying—these skinny jeans (can the fit be any more divine?), and the very
adorable model! Girl crush.

A sleek black leather jacket. Mmm.

Leather on leather? Hell yea.

The ending looks for the Tiesto Capsule Collection’s runway.

And it doesn’t end here.

As part of its 30th birthday celebration, GUESS is running a series of shopping specials and weekend
giveaways from 1-30 October. Think RM100 vouchers, RM300 specials and 30% off accessories (for selected items)! Limited editions products are also available for sale during weekends along with free
giveaways to the first 30 GUESS fans. Also, if you are an October baby, you are in for a surprise on
29th and 30th October! Visit the stores for more information, and better yet, check in daily for
anniversary treats!

GUESS brought Claudia Schiffer back into the spotlight for its 30th anniversary campaign.

As for me, of course I will happily go on a shopping spree at GUESS, my first love! See you at a GUESS

The night I got three glasses of alcohol spilled on me.

Sponsored post

You may not know this, but I was in Penang again the following weekend after Audrey’s wedding! 2 consecutive weekends in Penang—I can be PR there already wtf. But it was for good reason though. I was invited to the Johnnie Walker Black Circuit Lounge Great Britain event, a highly anticipated VIP race party on the island! After attending the one in KL earlier this year (*click*), I was really hyped up for a Round 2 of Johnnie Walker’s famous VIP parties.

My party weekend started off at the right note— a great hotel room (Thank you Johnnie Walker for putting us in such a nice hotel), Penang Char Kuey Teow, and most importantly, great company!

I.e. these girls:

With Cindy, Jane and Ringo.

Ringo was my room-mate for Audrey’s wedding weekend; I’ve met Jane previously during the Parkson/ Tongue in Chic ‘So You Think You Can Style’ challenge whereby both our teams emerged as winners; as for Cindy, we have met briefly at events, but this was the first time we really got to know each other (after ‘char kuey teow’ and alcohol, everyone becomes good friends haha).

Hence I knew I was in for a great night!

We were chaffeured to the event, which was set at the Penang Turf Club. The moment we arrived, we were greeted with a fleet of sexy sports cars parked at the entrance and camera flashes going on and off—a sure sign of a star-studded event!

Now, I have something to confess. Due to the hectic schedule that built up before Audrey’s wedding, I didn’t get to do much research about the event, so imagine my surprise when I reached the venue, and saw a lot of Great Britain influences!

English ‘soldiers’ guarding the entrance.

Hot ushers in Union Jack corsets.

The British theme was meant to celebrate Team Vodafone McLaren Mercedes’™ home race in Silverstone, and coincidentally, it also fit in very well with Penang’s rich colonial history! :)

I was mentally kicking myself because had I knew about the theme (Johnnie Walker Great Britain, duh!), I would have definitely dress according to the theme! Instead I wore a black backless maxi dress—because Black Circuit mar wtf.

Outfit for the night:

Black backless maxi dress: Bangkok
Dusk pink silk obi belt: Portman, Melbourne
Oversized spiked bangle: Topshop
Ring: Maria Francesa
Black leather studded heels: Stuart Weitzman
Snake print envelope clutch: Korea

Cindy was complimenting my dress, and couldn’t believe when I told her that my outfit cost me less than RM40. It’s true! My dress cost me RM20 from a night martket in Bangkok, and I got my obi belt in Melbourne on Boxing day for 4.95AUD. As for the accessories-- I got my spiked bangle for SGD19.95, and my ring on a sale from ASOS. Even my heels I fetched them for a really good price in Hong Kong! ;)

To enter the event, we have to take a dark corridor with murals of F1 drivers plastered on either side. Vrooming car engine sounds were played in the background. Super impressive entrance, and makes you very excited to see what awaits you at the end of the corridor!

Which was this. This was when the hall was still brightly lit, of course.

With Kenny Sia!

Ringo, Chuckei and I trying out the realistic green screen 3D photo room. We got to be in the same picture as Vodafone McLaren Mercedes™ F1™ drivers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, nyehehe.

Fun photo booths decked out as iconic London telephone booths!

DJ Geri from Malaysia opened the party, and started the tone for the party. Imagine, within half an hour of being at the event, and we were grooving on the dancefloor already—solid proof that the music was so awesome that night!

After DJ Geri, there was a line-up of top notch DJs such as DJ Ray Ray from Taiwan, Benji Boko from the UK , and DJ Direct , much to the delight of all the party-goers!

With Kenny at our VIP table. Smacked right in front of the DJ console yo!

My favorite drink of the night. I kept on asking for refills, which probably would explain why everyone was trigger happy. :P

I was pleased to see that Johnnie Walker has leveled up, because this time around,, guests had an even wider selection of drinks and for our enjoyment! I was particularly intrigued by the new and evocative serves using tea by Johnnie Walker-- in keeping with the British theme yet unlocking the signature big bold flavours of JOHNNIE WALKER® in a fresh way! Tea is no longer a grandma drink, thanks to Johnnnie Walker. :P As Diageo Reserve Brand Ambassador Tim Judge said: “We want to encourage our fans to try drinking our whisky with a variety of serves as there isn’t a set way for you to enjoy your whisky”. I hear you!

Shimmying on the dancefloor !

A cute usher dressed in a striding man outfit guy whom I asked to snap a picture with. The service that night was commendable! Our hands were literally never left empty—we always have a drink in hand. :P

More Great Britain/ Formula 1 accents-- .personally hand-signed items from VMM drivers themselves.

With Cindy. This woman is so crazy when she is high, haha.

Jane’s sequined Union Jack clutch.

Unintentionally both Ringo and I wore some lethal spikes for the night!

I managed to snap a paparazzi shot of JJ Lin!

Yup, he was at the event, and I was like less than 2 metres away from him. :O :O :O He is MAJOR okay! I often listen to his songs when I work. *shy*

But to be honest, my paparazzi photo sucked. Here’s a better picture:

JJ Lin here seen with Responsible Drinking Ambassador Mika Häkkinen (2-time F1 world champion), who was in Malaysia to reinforce the Join The Pact to Never Drink And Drive campaign, JOHNNIE WALKER®’s Responsible Drinking social initiative worldwide. Built around the message that “Winners Always Stay In Control”, JOHNNIE WALKER® encourages consumers to pledge their signatures to “Never Drink And Drive” (for more details, click

Mika Häkkinen’s appearance that night is testimony to that fact that JOHNNIE WALKER® BLACK CIRCUIT LOUNGE VIP race parties always aim to deliver exclusive insider-access into the extraordinary world of motorsport ,!

Super pretty Jane. She reminds me of Angelababy!

Jessica. Love the Great Britain accents in her outfit!

Hosts Hannah Tan and Oli Pettigrew.

Spied this Black Label ad while I was queing for more drinks, and stood there to admire it for a bit. I always appreciate any fashion elements in ads and spreads. 


When I was at the bar, I squealed, “I remember him!”, much to Cindy’s amusement.

I recognized this bartender from the KL event. Similar to the previous event, there were plenty of new and innovative cocktails introduced, for example, “Black Circuit” and “Jasmine Monarch”.

Halfway during the party, the music was interrupted and the lights was dimmed. Before we knew it, a blizzard of gold confetti rained on us!


Had a time-out to camwhote with the gold confetti shower. Check out Jessica’s hat whic collected all the confetti pieces HAHAHA.

The floor was covered in gold after that! Pretty. :)

There was one downside to the gold confetti though....

All the confetti pieces went into our drinks! T______________________T What a waste of good liquor, sigh.

More random pictures of the night:

Stroking the Gold Label bottle lovingly hehehe.

Spotted Union Jac shoes!

Going cuckoo with Kenny and Jessica.

Cindy asking for more drinks. :P

Hands down my favorite drink for the night—Gold Label Reserve cocktail, called ‘Fresh Gold’, served in a gold-rimmed champagne flute.

Unfortunately, it seems that god sensed that I really love it, and by some twisted force of nature, I got THREE glasses of the drink spilled onto me in three separate incidents later into the night. T___T

Half of the third glass was spilt onto my hair. T____________T

Peeling gold confetti pieces off Jessica’s cleavage wtf.

With the uber gorgeous DJ Geri! She is so stunning I just couldn’t keep my eyes off her. :O

Met Linora whom interviewed me on Red FM recently! :)

I also spotted many other celebrities that night, such as local celebrities like Reshmonu, Leng Yein, Nadia Heng, Josiah Mizukami, Dasha Logan, Lavin Seow, Chelsia Ng, Carl Graham and Kimberley Leggett.

When I was leaving the party, I was pleased to see that JOHNNIE WALKER® had a Responsible Drinking Action Team that provided guests with complimentary mineral water throughout the party and before guests left the venue. DRINKiQ posters were also put up to inform and educate guests on Responsible Drinking through tips on ways to minimise intoxication and stay safe. Well done, Johnnie Walker! You truly live up to your name as committed advocates of responsible drinking.

Ending with some pictures I took of Johhnie Walker’s Facebook Page that I felt perfectly portrayed our happy trippy state:

Please like Johhnie Walker’s Facebook Page to see more photos!

It’s impossible to describe the intensely fun atmosphere that night, but hopefully this video will give you a good idea what went down that night:

I had so much fun that night! Dancing without abandon on the dancefloor, mingling between the squeezy crowd, meeting new crazy people, sipping on yummy liquor... I would do it again! And again...

After all, you know it’s the epitome of an awesome night when you get liquor spilled all over you and your hair, and you still walked out of the party with a huge grin.
