The dress code was “fabulous” and i honestly didn’t know what to wear.
At 7:30pm i was rolling around on my sofa naked lamenting to Clem, “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!”
Clem: You cannot say that.
I decided that i’d just wear what i felt comfortable and FABULOUS in, which ended up being what Yishyene describes as my ‘crazy woman dress’, and a matching headband from Sereni & Shentel.
It was a LOT of colour on me, and i asked Clem: “Is it too much?”
Clem: Baby, you are too much. You have a tattoo of a My Little Pony on you.
Me: -_- Bye.

So i’m just gonna campakkan semua into one post so it’s just a chronological account of my life la ok.
First are some fashion pix!
What i wore to work one day. I’ve been feeling a lot more colour of late and managed to find these two separate pieces from Topshop and Azorias in the exact same shade, so i wore them together XD

I went for lunch with Melissa yesterday and she told me about her recent personal project with Ridduan. The both of them decided to collaborate on a series of photographs to present Melissa in a completely different light compared to her public image as a singer and songwriter, while photography + styling + art direction was executed by Ridduan alone.
The mdotxttfga photo series was shot in alleyways and little-known spots of KL in areas such as Masjid Jamek and Brickfields. Ridduan’s choice of styling is a fusion of local high fashion (Joe Chia, Zakwan Anuar and Silas Liew) and flea market finds (from thrift shops in Chow Kit).
The pictures above are exclusive to KinkyBlueFairy, but you can view more pictures posted on *Tongue in Chic* and *GUMBALL mag*

Mdotxttfga is a collaboration between Melissa Indot and Ridduan Ismail aka ttfga (which cleverly stands for Tukang Tangkap Foto Gembira Anda).
Melissa Indot is no stranger to the local music scene. Having first captured our attention when her solo album “Eclecticism” was released, the album went on to win Best English Album at the 2008 AIM Awards (Anugerah Industri Musik). She’s back in full force with her brand new album “MDot”. Barely 4 months after the launch, Melissa has garnered nominations from VIMA (Voice International Music Awards) for 2014′s Best Malaysian Vocalist and Best Music Video. Having released her lead single ‘You & Me’, the track has made its way onto our local airwaves, with remixes by Mike Jolly and H3.
Ridduan hails from the quiet land of Kelantan and has been gradually making his mark in our capital city in the past year. A self-taught photographer, Ridduan initially came into prominence by organizing shoots ala the creative collective Art Comes First, which he calls “Style Sunday Photo Shoot”. These photo shoots are shot on the streets, with an invitation extended to various individuals from different fields. Initially done for fun, the product of these collaborations have been picked up and featured in local fashion and lifestyle magazines.
Every time people tell me things like, “Hey, you’re doing great in life!”
I always reply, “Just trying my best.”
Recently i’ve been pushing my best to be even better.
My best is not to be measured by success, or money, or how awesome i look to everyone on the outside.
My best should be about truth, love, honesty, respect, peace… there are so many things that plague my mind these days on how i can be all these things while keeping my moods in check. It’s hard..!
My trying to eat healthier is hard.
My trying to stop smoking is hard.
I have my good days, and i have my naughty days,
but i’m not berating myself for them.
Beating myself with guilt will not help me feel any better.
Instead, i think of how good i am being by having that one day where i only ate salads or fresh raw food.
Or like this morning when i decided to meditate for ten minutes despite my other days i rush without a thought of prayer.
Or yesterday morning when i woke up at 7:30am to make Clem and myself fresh juice, and left my house for a workout at 8:30am.
I turned down two jobs this week alone which i’d like to share.
Both were for FMCG products, and after a simple research online by simply picking two ingredients used in them, i found out horrifying statistics and info on how these compounds are strongly linked to cancer. Feel free to google/read about them yourself, i searched up the side effects for Liquidum paraffinum and Methyl Paraben.
It wasn’t easy to turn them down at first… cos honestly, i WANT the money. It’s enough money for me to survive for a month. But after some incidences that have been happening of late, i thought to myself, “If this is my last day alive, what would i do?”
The answer came so simply - I wouldn’t do it.
Why on EARTH would i promote a product that is unsafe for people!?
That would go against all my beliefs i’ve been trying to instil in myself.
So for now, i have earned nothing this month as of yet.
It’s gonna be a real test of faith, but i want to continue saying NO to advertising things that i would not use myself.
I don’t know how this is gonna fare for my blog’s earnings, but deep deep down, i know i’m doing the right thing, and i feel good about it.
Now, can someone give me more emcee jobs please? :p
