Jersey Boys in Malaysia

The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons

The best part why I love being a blogger is because entertainment like this. I'm such a fan of plays on stage and Allhamdulillah I have been given a ot of opportunity to catch shows like this.

Honestly, I have never heard about The Jersey Boys before, when Nuffnang held the contest was all I knew that I had to watch this. With this musical as the winner of 54 awards World Wide including Best Musical for Grammy Awards and Tony Awards I knew that it will be a great lost if I hadn't had a chance to see this.

Luckily a big thank to Nuffnang they granted my wish, and that's why I will be forever faithful to them since they have gave me most of the opportunity I have ever desired for. I just feel lucky that I have Nuffnang in my blogging life.

Anyways back to the topic. How was the show? It was just extraordinary I tell you. As a student who had once learnt about backstage performances with the lighting and the set and the props,  was awesomely amazed that night. Istana budaya sure was one of the world class stages. There was one scene during the musical where I was totally amazed by lighting. They made the stage like there were two stages in the back and in the front. Awesome just superbly awesome.

As excited as I usually am for each show on stage, this one makes me keep thinking,
Honestly again I was kinda lost during the first phase cause what the hell were their trying to explain here since from afar all the Jersey Boys looks mostly alike. And then when the show went on going I finally got the story. 
You guys seriously need to get a background check if you now nothing about The Jersey Boys. No wonder most of the viewers that night were older than me. I never had been to a Show at Istana Budaya where I could hardly find someone my age around.
Gosh, This group was based during the 1960's and that's more than a decade before I was born. No wonder I was clueless about The Four Season, but I do recognize some of the songs that they sang that night. I never knew that most of the hit songs from other artist was originatted from their songs. 
It made me more eager to know about who were the Jersey Boys exactly cause the show was about how Frankie Vallie and The Four Season became a hit group. And why the show is called Jersey Boys? Cause their all from New Jersey. Make sure you could catch up on Jersey accent before you guys plan to watch this, cause hell you'll be lost I guarantee.

I still couldn't get enough. Just loved it till the end, now wonder they had one so many awards.

For those who are planning to watch could get your info here
You won't regret.
Till then peeps. Have a good weekend.

Shizens Stand Firm Stay Firm Online Photography Contest

Good news for those who are into photography.
Doesn't matter if your a pro or not, cause Shizen sure has a treat for you.

"Since ancient times, women were rarely offered opportunities to work and learn. Yet, their inner strength can still be seen through their roles of giving birth to new life, taking care and protecting their family. But as time passed, women began demonstrating their capabilities in undertaking more responsibilities, raising a family as well as being part of the workforce and contributing to social welfare. As evolution enhanced the confidence level of every woman allowing them to showcase their inner strength, they still recognized the importance of physical beauty and strived to maintain their outer beauty through various means.
As a means of acknowledging and recognizing the efforts of all women, Shizens will be launching a “Stand Firm Stay Firm” campaign from April 2 to April 30, 2014 where customers and fans will stand to win loads of attractive prizes by displaying their inner strength and outer beauty through a photo contest.

I Want a Havaianas Summer Kit!

I have been longing to do this blogpost since Tammy posted it up at The Butterfly Project facebook page. I was like so so so excited when I saw this that Havaianas is yet having another contest. Wohoooo.. Since I started wearing Havaianas last year I loved it so much that I wore it everyday almost everywhere I go including to class and events.
Like seriously no joking, I wore them everywhere till there was no more shoes for me. Just having Havaianas was enough.
But then my pair of Golden Havaianas tore up and I was extremely sad. It went flying as I was walking maybe cause I was walking too fast at that time.

Well forget bout that, pass is pass and I still don't have the heart to throw away these flip flops. Their still just awesome especially cause its gold and super comfy. Just loved the colour very much.

Anyways when I saw the Havaianas Summer Kit, I was like, is this fate? Did my golden flip flops tore because I was destined to have these limited edition Havaianas. OhhhMAIGADDDD!!! Happy tears now. LOL
Like Tammy said, it's just every girls summer dream to have one of these!
Forget about glass shoes, cause I'm a flip flop Cinderella.
I found my prince charming with flip flops and for sure I hope my feet are still lucky.
My feet are so dreaming to be Cinderellish now, cause the flip flop with the golden strap is so killing me right now. Aaaaaaa... It's just almost the same like my old one but it's more sexy and vintage!
So please please I hope there is a size 5 for me.
If there is not I'm happy enough with size 6 as long as it fits.
Cinderella has small feet right so I bet there must be a size 5. teheee....

Anyways, what is so unique about this Havaianas Summer Kit?

Well for those who are into arts for sure would have known Gil Elvgren. A famous American Pin-Up Artist, well for those who don't here is a brief about him.

As an art student of course I have learnt about him and his art work. 
His Pin-Up illustrations were inspiring. I used most of his artworks for my assignments since the illustrations has that strong vintage look.
And it was rather suprising actually when his work was combined with Havaianas which makes me want these limited edition flip flops more badly.

These Havaianas surely would be a collectable item if I had one of these already. Maybe I'll might just put it in a class jar for viewing. And not to forget I'll add a note, "do not touch". 

The best part of this Summer Kit that it comes along with a towel as well. Aaaaa... This makes me feel like planning a vacai to the beach so I could show off my pin-up illustrations Havaianas flip flops and towel. Ohhhhsem! Cryingggggg.

So why do I want a Havaianas Summer Kit?

1. I'm die hard fan of Havaianas!
2. It's limited of course. It's like a girls ferarri, so true.
3. My old Havaianas is torn and I need a replacement. T_T 
     (no other flip flops are comfy like the Havaianas I've worn before)
4. Like Tammy said , its a girl's summer dream to have one of these.
5. I'm a flip flop Cinderella
6. I'm an art student, I should wear things of art! It's Gil Elvgren's folks.
7. Its vintage, the pin-up illustrations just catches my heart.
8. It also comes in Gold! Aaaaa.. The slim sandy gold colour strap with a sexy touch. Just perfect for me. 
9. Havaianas are like my Jimmy Choo's so you can guess already how much treasure it is for me.
10. Lastly of course because I wanna SHOW OFF! LOL 
Daaa.. It comes with a towel too and for sure its like made for the beach. Summer vacai is just so gonna be awesome.

I so gotta get my hands on these limited babies, so please dearest Butterfly Malaysia and Havaianas please grant my Cinderella wish.

And not forgetting. I'm a size 5
6 also can la.

If you girls out there also wish to be a Cinderella here are the deets:

An Update. LOL

Morning peeps!
How long has it been since I've updated this lonely blog?
I'ts been so hectic with my schedule lately and it is driving me crazy too, but still I'm trying my best to appreciate my life as a student.
Honestly I missed going to events so much, it's like I've been totally anti-social this past month. But still I have my own life here.

Sometimes I feel like I am two different people. The one called me Mira and the other one called Cikcit. "Drama sangat kan bunyi?' Anyways, forget that.

Life in my faculty has turned out much more better eventually. My class seems to be entertaining now since most of us do click together. The best part is that we are all in the same club. This semester is sure gonna be busy for me. Well for us of course cause we are gonna have loads of fun. I hope so, with all these trips and activities planned, can't think of anything better for a student life. I bet when I start working, there will be no time for these kind of things anymore, and I missed most of that during my diploma years.

And degree turned out way more better cause now I have these two in my life. 

That's for study, for blogging I dream of a lot, but still I don't have much time to update everyday. I write about 1 hour minimum for a blogpost and that's like 'cincai' and I dont want that. Cause what you say and what you right reflects you. I'm positively sure that all bloggers agree on that right?

If you guys are a fashion bloggers and you guys keep updated with Hijabista Magazine, of course some of you might have noticed already and some of you might have not cause, well

Who thinks that's me? Well wrong guess, that ain't me.
Its my twin sister with make up on. LOL

How did she end up in there?
Well she told me that it was a bit embarrassing. It was her first time and she had to pose like this and that. Awkward moment ever when they tell you to change pose.

Thanks to Kak Hana from Karangkraf my sister had this experience. Will she do it again? LOL.. I dunno.

Well I think that's all, wasn't even planning to write long even. Btw my baby Gary have kitten mittens now.

All fat and short. Will update soon.
Till then peeps, have a good week.
