#2010memories + #2011cleanslate

I can’t believe 2010 was so yesterday even though it’s been a month already. Honestly, I felt that time passes by oh-so-quickly last year. It really almost feel like everything just happened recently, because I could remember every single micro details of 2010.

* * * * * * * * *

The College LifeCollege

The Micro Details I Remembered - Like how I made friends with whom on my first day in Sunway University, how the class was so quiet during our first lesson of Management Information. Looking back, no one could have believed or expected that, that bunch of awfully quiet students could be so loud and boisterous one year later. Really, college life has been nothing but fun. Yes, of course there were the stressful bits of last minute cramping of studies, the failing in both of my mock exams and some other shit but it was all these experiences that made 2010 what it was. And for that I am thankful. Someone once told me, “Life begins during college.” I couldn’t agree more.

The Egyptian Hair Do Part  Me

The Micro Details I Remembered – Who could have possibly forget this! Haha, I decided to have fringe and I ended up looking like a kid! Well, you see I haven’t been able to keep a fringe because I had curly hair, so when I rebonded my hair, I told my stylist that I wanted fringe. And so happens that was when the new semester started; I remember going back to college and some of my friends couldn’t recognize me, thinking that I was a new student in the class. That was hilarious! I loved this hairstyle but I wouldn’t do it again because having a fringe is oh-so-troublesome.

My 18th Birthday Part


The Micro Details I Remembered – Like how I actually wasn’t looking forward to July 30, 2010 because I was so afraid that I would be covered in flour, torched with a lighter and doused with paint. It sounds like ‘what the hell’, right? But that was what Reuben said would happened to me on my birthday. Haha, but thanked God none of those happened. Instead, I just got pushed into the cake. Which I think wasn’t even part of the plan. STILL. OMG. Despite that, I still love my friends. Duh, who wouldn’t! Thank you CFAB Batch 2 again for the surprise and presents. Thank you, Teddy for the Manhattan Fish Market lunch and the awesom-est charm bracelet ever! Thank you Mich and Leon for the birthday lunch at Pasta Zanmai. Thank you, my dear parents for the my birthday dinner of pork ribs and prawns. Thank you for all the wishes on FB also (sorry I couldn’t reply you all). I love you all.

The Nail Polish Mania

page page1

The Micro Details I Remembered – 2010 has got to be a year that I discovered the wonders of nail polish and I’ve been hooked on it (LOL, sounds like I’m addicted to a kind of drug) ever since. I know it sounds so pathetic that after 18 years of my life, have I only just discovered nail polish. Haha, I now have like 14 nail polish? I was so into nail polish that basically my parents started putting a time period of how often I change the colours! Ohamgee, right? It was that bad.

Food, Glorious Food!


The Micro Details I Remembered – Well, I’m not going to go into details about what each and every food in this picture means to me, but basically these are some of my favourite food and also those nicely shot by Cammy too. And note that I have included my mom’s homecooked food here also! She is the best cook ever! Hearts!

Cammy’s Awesome Shots

IMG_0675 IMG_0777 IMG_1969 IMG_1870

The Micro Details I Remembered – The.pictures.are.too.pretty.for.me.to.describe.anything. :) Honestly, Cammy was one of the best things that happened to me last year. I never knew I was so into photography until I got Cammy and that was when I started sharpening my photography skills. I’m still learning as everyday passes by, hoping that by the time I get my D7000, I could shoot drop dead gorgeous pictures.

IMG_4206 My personal favourite. Which is my header now. Hearts.

2011’s here, babes!

Don’t think I need to do a recollection of 2011 because it is only the first month, but it already feels like a rollercoaster ride. It’s up and down, mostly down in the past few days. Hell, who cares. I know this will be an awesome year. And I know, somehow, I will make it through it all. Thank you each and everyone of you for being in my life. It’ll be another great year ahead with you all. :)

I miss this. I would do anything, everything to get this back. Even if it was for a second, I would.

The Internship Experience @PwC


Five days interns’ induction, four days involve training. PwC makes sure they send their interns out; ready, armed and set to battle.. err I mean face up to the challenges of an auditor’s life. :)

IMG_5583Meet Desmond Lee, the guy who I thought was so street smart until he got lost and brought us all the way to Bangsar, instead of 1Sentral.

IMG_5591My beloved friends; all the way from USM.

IMG_5593We are all still in the smiley mode, this was of course, before we were sent to the field.

IMG_5586 Group picture! Haha, the table is so messy. And can you spot another two Canon S90 on the table?


That’s me! In an anti static coat. I wore a bunny suit too, but didn’t get a picture of that. And that red tape was given to my laptop. Very tight security at my client’s place. The guards use metal detector on us.

IMG_5824 Gotta love this shot. :) The goodies from the Interns' Reception today. Fun! Got to meet Wei-Yuen and Pat, missed helping out at the ICAEW booth.

This picture don’t do me justice.

Imagine a little oh-so-excited kid with a giant balloon, then the balloon burst and you could see right through her eyes just how disappointed she was. That was what I felt like when I saw my picture.

IMG_5782 I just had to look so overly excited here, didn’t I?

Mom said I don’t even look like myself. Suddenly, I have chubby cheeks and puny bead-like eyes. Everyone else said it was okay. Maybe cause they didn’t want to point out the obvious; I didn’t look good. But daddy said something that totally made sense and made my day. Quite surprisingly that he would have said that. Daddy do knows best, huh?  However, despite all this melodrama of me not looking good, I am grateful to be in the Seventeen magazine, February issue (although only a page and 10% of another page). 

* * * * * * * *

Oh that busy Saturday.

IMG_5750 Went back to college for a meeting! Managed to meet my beloved(s).

IMG_5751 My girls! <3

IMG_5752 Sayang(s) in coordinated outfits! Not planned though. :)

IMG_5756 Lamb Shank @Garden, Sunway Pyramid. Thanks Pat for the lunch.

IMG_5755Sizzling T-Bone Steak @Garden too.  

page Finally managed to get my hands on this eye popping green skirt! And oh, a super cute short sleeved trench coat too. :D

That’s all for now loves! Will update soon about work.

Cleo Cover Girl Search 2011; The Launch Party

After five days of working hard, I’ll honestly take any opportunity to get out and have fun; the let-down-my-hair-and-don’t-give-a-shit-about-the-world kind of fun. So, when I managed to get myself invited to the Cleo Cover Girl Search Launch Party, I thought, “Why not go?”.. I’m sure it’ll be fun. Except, fun would be too simple of a word to describe my day.

Because the dress code was smart casual and high heels was a must, so was a natural styled up hair, I decided to wear my new black sequinned dress from Kitschen with my favourite grey strappy heels.

MeRay Ban and my flawless skinned brother!

* * * * * * * *

Thanks to Daddy, we managed to arrive there rather early so I thought I could drop by for the CLEO Mini Road show, only to my horror, this is when my ‘nightmare’ begins. I asked Girl One in a CLEO T-shirt, where was the road show and she said, “There, there.. Over there.” Obviously, she was too busy to entertain me. So I thought she meant the Old Wing main entrance since I was in the New Wing main entrance and there was nothing there. I walked to the New Wing, saw nothing there, asked the Information Counter girl and she said Old Wing. At that point, I was like, “WTF” already because I walked from one end to another end only to get nothing. In my three inch, I walked back again to the Old Wing entrance and saw three already incredulously small MINI cooper with the CLEO magazine on its doors. So, yea. That was the road show. It was basically a waste of my time, also making me all hot and sweaty for the party too.

IMG_5661 The party at the DKNY Jeans outlet!

IMG_5662Basically, this is where the ‘party’ took place. Honestly, it’s not much of a party. It’s more like an audition for girls interested in being on the cover of CLEO.

IMG_5664 Where the make over took place. Some of the make up on the girls was rather plain, but I like mine. The lady did a great job on creating the smokey eyes for me.

IMG_5675After the make over and dressed in DKNY shirt and jeans, worn just for the photo shoot.

IMG_5687 Kah Wai’s photo shoot pictures! being chosen and printed out.

IMG_5688I.don’t.like.this.picture. I look hideous! If you don’t think so, blame it on my ever-self-conscious self. Somehow, in this picture, I felt like my smile doesn’t reach my eyes. Oh-so-fake smile. Btw, this was the picture chosen for the Cover Girl entry. Not that I expect to be short-listed anyway.

me me The other few shots taken, the up-close is just as ugly but the full body looks okay to me.

IMG_5711 Tee Hee! :) I look so much better in my own camwhored shots compared to the one the photographer took. Like wth.

That will be all, peeps! I am dead tired, I feel like as though my eye balls would roll out of its sockets anytime. Will update more soon, about working life. <3 Nights!

Work it hard, baby!

If you haven’t already heard the news from Twitter (@kahmunhong) or my FB, I’m going to say it again here; I’m working on a real job in an audit firm! Albeit the fact that I’m just interning, but still I’m one step closer to losing my life and dedicating myself to the real auditing world. Well, I have decided to that I am to become an auditor in future, so I might as well start now. In fact, I already started my intern period with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) yesterday. I was excited about the whole going to work thing, but guess what I was more interested in?

It’s clothes! What to wear to work! Over the last Dec holidays, I have managed to update my wardrobe with formal working attires. And now, I do wonder how long I can keep this enthusiasm up. Haha, but so far I can honestly admit that the best part of the day is actually the getting-ready-for-work part.

IMG_5547 Can you see my dress, shoes, hand bag and OH, my manicured nail?! I painted it pinkish nude, specially for work. And I’m so in love with this colour. So fresh, so pure.

I’m totally in love with that dress from Kitschen, thanks Mom for choosing it for me. :) And I am also very much in love with my working jacket I wore today! I found it quite queer for me to wear that jacket actually because I haven’t exactly started working because I have training till Monday. But still, I wanted to wear it out so much.

jacketPwweeetty? Aren’t you madly in love with it already?

Anyway, today is like the third day of training and I still have Friday and Monday to go. One thing about PwC is that they really do make sure that when they send us out to do fieldwork, we are fully trained and equipped. At least, I won’t be so lost at my client’s place. Oh, speaking of clients, I just found out today that I got booked with three different companies over my three months there. I’m so excited that I got three different companies (= different experience) but I’m afraid I haven’t got enough time to really know the companies. Hmm, maybe I should do some research on the company first.

Anyway, I am dead tired. I should sleep in early. It was so hard to get myself  up today; it was raining when I needed to wake up but it’s also oh-so-comfy that I could sleep in all day.

* * * * * *

To all my dearies, I will post more stuff up soon! Am working on a #2010memories & #2011cleanslate post. Look out for that!
