It's possibly the busiest time in school this semester, only because the term is ending, and that means one thing - Christmas is round the corner!! <3 #thebesttimeoftheyear #welovechristmas

Remember how I promised a blogpost about my experience at the Miss Singapore World Finals? Well, there is actually a list of other things I want to write about as well. But since this one is done up already, let me just link you here! 

School was really nice to invite me to blog on the school site -
The Day I entered Miss Singapore World:

I never imagined myself in that world of big smiles, perfect hair and tiaras – let alone one of Singapore’s “Big 4” pageants – but this September I found myself in a neat line of girls in gowns, on that very stage, at Miss Singapore World.

It still feels a little surreal. I’d woken up one morning to a Facebook message inviting me to join Miss Singapore World. It was one of those “What if?” moments – they had already completed a pre-judging segment, and the night itself was only a few weeks away, but I decided to go with a “Why not!” and put my best stiletto-ed foot forward.


The pageant night came all too soon. As we stood in a line backstage readying ourselves to take the stage, I tried to calm my nerves. I’d walked in fashion shows a few times, but pageants were a whole new challenge – who hasn’t seen YouTube videos of embarrassing Q&A segments and girls tripping over gowns at pageants?

02
Trying not to let my nerves get the better of me during the Q&A segment.
I took a few deep breaths and decided to give it my best shot. The lights went on, the cue was given, and I went on stage with no expectations, a bounce in my step – and a big smile.

03
Doing the catwalk was easier.
When they not only announced my name in the Top 10 line up, but also for the Miss Personality and Miss Photogenic titles, I was over the moon. The cameras flashed as they put the sashes on me – I felt like a star! I was really close to tears at that point, speechless and surprised. Then came the announcements for Top 5, Top 3, and the heart-stopping moment that arrived with “Top 2”. I was finally named the First Runner-up!

04
Sandwiched between my brother, Nick, and one of the judges, Mr Allan Moo.
They put the tiara in my hair, added the sash across my shoulders, and presented me with my prizes, which included a talent contract with a local movie production house. I waved and mouthed a grateful “thank you” to the judges, who were beaming and clapping. It was perfect – I savoured every moment of it. Backstage, the make-up artists and gown sponsors showered me with enthusiastic congratulations.

The biggest surprise of all was my little brother Nick turning up at the stage. “Kim, Kim, come on, let’s take a selfie!” he went, in his usual way. “You’re here!” I shrieked. I hadn’t told my family to attend the event since tickets had been sold out. But there he was! “How could I miss it?” he said, as he took the selfie – my favourite photo from that night.

Carrie Model Launch Party @1-Altitude

Carrie Models Launch Party at Altimate:A pic in the room, view from the top, and being interviewed by Yahoo!
It's been quite a month! And to write about this all only now is truly procrastination at its best! Also because school has been keeping me busy and away from this blog ;)

I had a blast at Carrie Models Launch Party at Altimate in August! The view at 1Altitude was stunning as always, and it sure felt like a party on the runway...

Wardrobe - Evisu | Bread and Butter | Steve Madden
 


Here are some photos from the pre-launch shoot too.

Photoshoot before the launch with made flippingly-fun with Mister Kovit!

Big smiles for STOMP at the launch party!

That's all for now, but I've got lots more to share about another great experience - Miss World Singapore 2014!

Till next time!
Kim

P.S. More pics at my instagram @kiminpei ;) be a friend?

 \\ Back to School \\
New timetables, new seatmates and exciting projects... all in a new school semester :) But also, less time for shifts at Abercrombie :( what used to be a daily thing... is now a weekly affair. Just yesterday I felt the full effects of not working in *forever* (a week actually) - many new faces, a new manager, a new playlist (my fav is the Georgie Porgie track). And lots of new clothes (i saw a red midi skirt.. since when!) Anyway, Abercrombie Associates still remain the sweetest. The bomber jacket I'm wearing in the photo is a "hope you stay warm during lectures and have a great sem ahead!" surprise, and the cupcake was a "nice working with you; but ciao guys i've got school to attend now" surprise. - [daww. #abercrombieHOT #abercrombieSWEET.]

 \\ Old-School \\
Fun times with Novell and Shannen after some brunch and coffee at Chye Seng Huat. Catching up since Nepal days was so necessary!

\\ Today \\
In RipCurl today, and I really liked how they drew my brows! Eyes-wise (tempting to spell: eyes-weyes), I'm never a fan of falsies. Though I've to admit how thrilling it is watching my lash-collection building up in the lash-stash in my journal! :)

Soon to update: Carrie Models Launch at Altimate @1-Altitude | Peeks from MSI | TRT | Styléograph New Collection

June-July-August (October, November, January and September too) are the most joyous months in my family because we have so many birthday celebrations! Just two days ago on 24/7, mummy dearest celebrated her birthday.. read all a here!

Then it was lots of spontaneous fun - Just like ... finding a Korean Mart along the way! 
로데마트에서 쇼핑해요!
And here.. Nicky getting into the mood of the moment ;)

In other news, I WENT SHOPPING! 
With the new Back-to-School season at Abercrombie and Fitch, comes great changes! Like... SUPERGAS! Now we can wear these Italian kicks; and I've been wearing them everywhere.
Everyone at work's been slowly joining the Superga(ng)!

Loving these crochet and lace pieces from Abercrombie and Fitch. Next up; Superga shoes! They're the latest addition to the lookbook, and I still can't decide which colour to get because they all look so pretty :<

Tuesday night was bazaar night and man was it bizarre! Who'd think we could find a Haunted House at a night market?

Highlights of the night would have to be walking a little further from the bazaar stretch in search of some famous Churros which were lovely - my first by the way!

By the time we left, the night was still young, and the fun was only just getting started because I had a Dim Sum Date with Melly!
Here's what else I've been up to:

This online store is launching on 25th July, so keep an eye out here! Show some more love and follow for updates on Instagram!

We found a skinny panda at the flea. He needs to eat more
If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
 (^excuses for an all-picture post)

A day all round Singapore is always good with these lovelies

Shopping Surprises!
Spotlight Finds and Parcels from Mummy Dearest!
Sushi date with my roomie <3
Extra energy for fitness classes from the good brows. Only on #goodbrowdays.
