sooo , two years ago when i finished my high school prom , i thought to myself , "what a waste of money on a dress i'll never wear again .." . Little did i know that two years later I'd be wearing it to my college prom !! Didn't wanna spend a fortune buying another dress that i would again , almost never re-wear so I thought putting on my old dress wouldn't do any harm ahhaha .
This year , the theme of the prom was "Enchanted Garden" and it was being organised by a really well-run committee ! needless to say , as the countdown of days to prom slowly became single digits , KTJ saw an increase in promposals , as well as the lively buzz of "did you get your dress yet ?" , "which table are you sitting at ?" , "afterparty onz mou" , and most importantly , "do you have a date to prom ?" . Well , i certainly didn't , as Kunyew was overseas and well i'm not one of the popular people in school AHHAHA .
however , this time round my prom didn't go as smoothly as i planned . initially , i booked Amanda , (the makeup artist who did my makeup previously) a month beforehand because i really liked her work 2 years ago . i had a few other friends who wanted to hop on the bandwagon with me so i said yes , we can share a makeup artist . two weeks before prom night , i found out that Amanda had accepted 5 more clients on that same day (all from my school) without informing me earlier . of course , how could a makeup artist handle 8 girls' face and hair within a matter of a few hours ??
i was definitely having my doubts and my intuition told me that i needed to find another makeup artist . hence , the first thing i did was text my friends for suggestions and after numerous searches online , i came across De Nail Addict , a nail parlour which did makeup services as well . my friend Michelle suggested it to me since she does her manicures in that place and the price for makeup services were pretty reasonable ! hence , i decided to give it a go . and boy , was i glad i did .
the makeup artist , Ling , was really dedicated into making me pretty and even when the double eyelid tape took some time to work (i have retarded eyes , with one slightly bigger than the other) , she didn't give up and miraculously managed to give me double eyelids ! headed over to Saffron's house after my hair and makeup was done and her mom sent us to The Royale Chulan , KL after we were done prepping .
upon arriving , all i remember is PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES . there were only 2 photobooths with approximately 300 people cramming to get an instant print of their own .. so needless to say , the line to the photobooths stretched longer than the Great Wall of China (an exaggeration , of course .. but you get the point lol .)
here are some of the photos !
please forgive the terrible Snapchat quality in the last photo ....
oh , and lets not forget how pretty the place looked !! the event planners really did a great job into making our prom look like a magical garden , with flowers and white sashes everywhere !
soon after , we were ushered to our tables and were served with food and some really good performances , such as the likes of Caprice !
this time i remembered to snap a photo of the menu since i knew i would never remember what was in my dishes HAHAH
halfway through a performance , me and my friends who sat together spotted a CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN !!!! NOW WHO DOESN'T LOVE FONDUE ??? we quickly rushed there to help ourselves to marshmallows and strawberries dipped in chocolate .
and this was when all hell broke loose . 😀😀 the first person to fall victim to the evil chocolate fountain was Alex Lu , my friend behind me in the photo . he may look victorious with his fondue stick in the air , but after this photo was taken he proceeded to drip chocolate onto his dark blue tie and had to head to the washroom to clean it up . that served as a warning for all of us and we ought to be scared but NOOOO . guess who continued eating chocolate like there was no tomorrow ? yup . me . and i was the next to experience Satan's fury as a long line of chocolate trickled down the skirt of my dress . FML . #truestory . had to rush to the toilet and stayed in there washing my dress and drying it with an electric hand dryer for 20-30 minutes while my girl friends frantically tried to help as much as they could ..
managed to wash off the chocolate stains but even now , if you look close enough , you can see mild brown spots on my cream-coloured dress :(
anyway , besides that terrible mishap i had , the rest of the night was simply enjoyable and i loved the company i had .
honestly the best bunch i could ever ask for , wouldn't have it any other way 😌
the original KDU-KTJ gang heh
after prom , me , Saffron , Crystal and Si Qi headed to Cangkat , Bukit Bintang for a few drinks , but not before a VOGUE photoshoot session in a hotel room that a few of our friends rented together HAHHAHA .
it doesn't get any more pretentious than this ...
went to The Rabbit Hole @ Cangkat where i made Crystal take a photo of my hairdo because up until that point , i had no idea what my hair looked like LOLOL .
overall , ended the night really well and loved every single bit of it , minus the chocolate tragedy HAIH .
photo booth strips with the people i value in my life !! so much love for them 💓
last two prom pics heh :p
a few weeks after prom , my second last term of KTJ ended . it's scary to think that the next time i go back to KTJ , it'll be my last 3 months there and i'm all set to graduate and go to university . really should start appreciating college life more so the lot of us have been taking photos of ourselves in the last week of school because we're vain af .. as usual .
omg the photo quality here is so bad .. i swear it wasn't meant to look this way !!! but one day the pavement was covered in gorgeous yellow flowers , so we just had to HAHA .
my JAW babies 😘
