IVOQ My Privilege Book Launch & Hair Show

January 2nd, 2008 · 16 Surrendered

Catscity.net was invited to cover the IVOQ My Privilege Book Launching cum fashion show yesterday at Tun Jugah at 1pm. Anna was there also for the hair show! Hehehe… We were feasted by clothes from 7 boutiques and 1 local designer, ISANSMYTH, with 16 professional female models from Kuala Lumpur parading in the longest catwalk runway ever happening in Kuching!

The launch was officiated by Alan Sim(center). Jodie(left) and Angelina(right) are the people behind the idea of this book. They released the balloons to mark the launch. You can learn more about IVOQ My Privilege Book here

Here! Let me show you the book and the card.

Our batteries all dried up as it’s non-stop catwalk! I had to resort to my phone to take photos of the hair show featuring Anna. The first hair show wasted my battery. We were told the models were supposed to pose at the platform first before start walking but those hair show models from Ray’s Salon didn’t do that -.- We were practically chasing after them to take photos. Cameras were everywhere and some people were damn selfish and too much. Blocked every single views of ours, there’s also pushing around too by one fat lady! Sucks! There’s a bunch of videographers and photographers that only cared about themselves. Also a middle-aged lady kept walking in front of the platform whenever she had the chance, please lar people is running an event here, can’t you use the other way, why must you budge into the closed area just to pass things to your daughter or to carry your shopping bags! Such simple common sense and courtesy you also don’t know.

If I had blocked your views or accidentally bumped into you, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to, I tried to stay clear from people’s view but I was pushed and people even went in front of me as if I’m invisible while I’m shooting. I had to find spots quickly else I’ll miss out all the photo opportunities. Sigh… When time like this, how you wish you have a DSLR with you, even most of the models only posed for DSLRs. *Sigh* The public won’t care a damn thing about you also even you’re invited and have privilege to go up close. We should be given a pass, that way it could help control the crowd better as some areas were blocked only for us, but some members of the public took advantage of it. I should consider getting a DSLR(not my first time saying this :P) but not so soon… Come! Anyone want to sponsor me? Or money just fall from the sky. Hahaha…

It doesn’t matter whether you are invited or not when it’s time to start snapping, no one will care whether they are invited or not. At least those invited got place to sit and were given with the books for free! YAY! 😛 There’s all food and drinks offered but we were not given any, it’s all right anyway because we won’t have time to enjoy them as we need to “work”.

Hair show by Ray’s Salon.

Hair Show by Crowning Glory. These were taken with my phone.

ANNA!! Hahaha… I thought I could get better photos of her but camera battery died… I used my phone to take her photo. Hence the lousy colours.

Fashion show coming up…
