The young bloggers in Malaysia are very outgoing and fun in nature. Well, being an Asian country, one would expect if you call for a costume party, the likelihood of people showing up in real costumes are very low. However, this does not apply for most outgoing Nuffnang MY bloggers based on many observations I have made throughout 2 years.
Last Friday, LG Malaysia launched its very first corporate blog www.lgblog.com.my and threw a party for bloggers, media and their guests to attend. It was meant to be a fun party with celebrities involvement and of course to commemorate their official blog in order to communicate more effectively with its target audience in Malaysia. Being a part of the advertising industry, I was amongst the first to know of this and I was roped in for the party planning.
One of the key themes for LG is their symbolic colors of red and white in their logo. A party with the dress code of red and white would be somewhat simple and ordinary if you ask me. That's why when I was asked to suggest a theme and I gave out the idea of Angelic White & Devilish Red which the good people from LG accepted and went ahead with its execution.
Angels oh angels
The LG Blog Launch party wasn't exactly a Nuffnang event as there were many parties involved in organizing it. As such, it was the first costume party for Nuffnangers which I do not have to be super busy during the party. However, there are still a lot that I need to do for pre and post event(which would be starting tomorrow). And as such I actually had time to dress up and look good during the party (but the stupid weather made me sweat like mad when I'm outdoor though).
Okay, I have to admit. The main reason why I didn't need to work my ass off during the party was due to the fact that I had help from my colleagues, Sue and Shalyn. They had to sit in to register the bloggers outdoor (where the humidity is fucking high and temperature was pretty high as well despite the fact it was already dark) while I got to juggle between indoor and outdoor just to cool myself. So yea, thank you Sue and Shalyn!! Your sacrifices are greatly appreciated!! :P
Shalyn is on the left while Sue is on the right. Shalyn is a premature angel w/o wings
As much as I wish to take more photos of events I've been to, I'm afraid I'm still a little busy than to snap pictures abundantly as I still had to manage the client and interact with the bloggers. However, I did manage to take quite a bit of photos with other bloggers compared to previous parties which I'm glad I did.
It's me and Tzia!>
I went as a male angel. I mean, I can be pretty nasty if I'm to dress up as a villain (refer Silent Halloween's Mummy) so I thought I should look good for this party and I went ahead to purchase myself a pair of white wings and white pants. I had the coat with me all the while so I wasn't that much of an investment. After all, I'm pretty sure my clothes will definitely be wearable and the wings... I think there's plenty of use for that (especially on bed). ;)
Let's take a look at the devils instead. I'm sorry, Tzia but I think you have the pictures I want to use the most, so I'm stealing and posting them here, yea? Lol. Many of the girls actually just wore red and black dresses and wore a pair of red horns as accessories (some came with red fork). So that's pretty much expected which I won't show here. I'm going to show the devils which are really catchy in appearances.
Jovi face-painted himself, made himself a skull chain and a.... somewhat disfigured devil fork just to attend the party. His effort paid off as he won The Out of Place Devil and brought home the mystery prize, an LG Cookie Mobile phone.
This guy came as.. Freddy Kruger. Scary indeed, but.. he wasn't a devil at the first place and somehow the judges weren't impressed and he didn't win anything that night. However, he was very very eccentric and that certainly brought a lot of photo opportunities for him.
This is the nasty devil queen. The moment she arrived, everyone knew that she was going to bring home the grand prize that night which was an LG 32" Full HD LCD TV. This is 1 wicked devil if you ask me. No one in the party came close to her in terms of the costume if you ask me.
I'm not going to show any pictures of angels, cause there are just too many of them and most of the angels look the same in terms of clothings. But all in all, the deserving ones won the prizes and it was all good.
Just felt like posing like this. Lol
All in all, it was a very fun event (since I don't have to work my ass off and I get to enjoy, Lol) for me and I definitely enjoyed dressing up and participating in the event. A big thank you for LG for throwing such an awesome party and heads up for all the bloggers who went to the party. An LG Arena mobile phone is up for grabs and all you gotta do to have a shot at it just by doing what you do best, blogging! More information will be sent to your emails soon.
Here's a sign off picture for tonight, me and Firdauz pulling a devil's tail off. ;)
P.S. Pictures taken from various sources. Look for their watermarks to find out where. I'm too lazy to link. Pictures w/o watermarks, some belong to me while some are from other bloggers which I'm lazy to link as well. Lol.
