Couch Surfing: Nepal Aid Party

*Photo are from FB albums (some under private view)

Some say any reason to party is a good reason to party. Before we get to that part let’s start off with a story from Nepal…

 

base camp

Annapurna Base Camp to Kathmandu 

It started off when a few of Malaysian Couch Surfing decided to conquering Annapurna Base Camp (4130m). As earthquake struck when the group was at Fish tail mountain, they visited villages near Kathmandu to help those in need. Above events happened in within 2 weeks.

Sharing is Caring

The group was in the village & witness the needs of the locals. They helped with whatever they can before return back home to Malaysia. The lack of basic needs like proper shelter, food & medication got Andy, Elena, Kohviel & Saligram to carry out a mission, Project rebuilding Nalang Village via CS Msia Nepal Aid Party.

Party + Donate

With the help of Wolfpack Gang from Couch Surfing Kuala Lumpur, venue, performers, henna design, food & drinks for the Nepal Aid Party was settled within a week. Even this lovely poster has been created instantly to spreed out the word to those who would share the love to friends they don’t know yet at the other side of the world.

Rules are Rulez

Being an adult makes me realized that rules are still rules, even when you party like a rockstar :p Here are some of the things you need to follow to enjoy your night: no drugs, no climbing over the roof ledge or walls, no throwing of anything from rooftop, no pissing off the rooftop & most importantly have fun & donate :D

Performances of the Night

Local artists like Ariff Akhir, Djezna’s stalker, Bechamel MuchoAzren Ukulele & DJ Sam rock the night away & jam with the crowds. It feels like being in high school camp with you get to sing & dance along together with those old familiar songs. CD sales from Djezna’s stalker & money in Bechamel Mucho’s guitar case were donated back to the event.

Henna Design

I’ve not been well for the past few days but I decided to drop by & show my love to this event. I got myself a henna design by Henna Havana at the Backyard KL for only RM5! Food & drinks were also available at a very afforable price from RM3 onwards.

Supportive Crowds

An event would not be suscessful without the passion from these lovely people. I heard that 150 came to show their love. Some including those who went MIA for months up to years decided to make this event the Gathering of the Year! So much shocked, laughters & tears among familiar faces. That’s what they say in CS, once a family forever a family no matter where they’ve been hiding…

Organizers: The Wolfpack KL

CS Msia Nepal Aid Party won’t even happen without the love from CS family, we surf, we host, now we even fundraise in the name of Couch Surfing. CS Malaysia is proud to announce that they have managed to raise total fund of RM3700 + S$60 thanks to all sponsors, supporters & volunteers. I bet most people went back feeling great with the amount raised but the organizers had to stay back till 3am just to make sure the venue is clean before handling back to Backpackers Travellers Inn sampai…

KLPAC: Uda dan Dara 2015

*Click square photo for direct link to Amir Set Pablo, Mark Lim & Hana Nadira‘s Instagram

Most people are very familiar with western Romeo & Juliet & our own Malaysian’s Sepet. Pardon my ignorant for not noticing much of late Usman Awang’s work. I have been a huge fan by supporting my favourite Synergy Dance whenever I’m back home @ Kota Kinabalu, enjoyed plays by W!ld Rice in Singapore. Some how I only get to attend World Youth Jazz Fest 2013 during my time in KL. Thanks Panda for giving me a chance to watch my very first local play…

 

Uda dan Dara 2015 

Uda Dan Dara 2015 is a re-telling of the classic Malaysian story of two star-crossed lovers, written by National Poet Laureate, Usman Awang. Dara, a young woman from an affulent family, and Uda, a young man born into hardship; Both equally shaped and driven by circumstance, yet both equally in love with one another. It is a story of love, transcending notions of wealth, class, and – in this adaptation – culture and ethnicity.

 

 

Malay VS Chinese

The 2015 Uda sees a young man drawn to the bright lights of Kuala Lumpur with his single mother in seach of ambition and a better life, but in doing so, meets and falls in love with the daughter of an affluent Malay family, Dara. Although they both live in the same city, a velvet rope divides their families; for while Uda is trying to make ends meet in Kampung Pencala which is now overrun by immigrants and hence nicknamed Kampung Pendatang, Dara is just a stone’s throw away in an affluent gated community that is Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Must listen: the couple express their love using Malaysian food!

 

Datin Zaiton

This adds distress to the mothers of the lovers, espcially Zaiton, Dara’s Single mother whon had raised her daughter using the political and societal connections her husband built in his time, albeit desperately as living conditions are getting harder with her dwindling savings. Datin is the best singer in the play, she rocks the stage like no other diva with her power house vocal.

 

 

 Aku Kaya #budakjahat

Enter Alang, the son of Dato Bakhil, a noted developer of the area, with his wealth & influence. Not content with the riches he was acquired, Alang has set his eyes on the land that is Kampung Pachala, the home of Uda. But that is not the only thing he is wishing to steal… Alang is the type of bad boys that you just want to give him a punch in the face but he’s also an awesome dancer at the same time ;)

 

 The whole Cast of Uda dan Dara 2015

Uda dan Dara 2015 injects a breath of fresh air into the present and the future. Join the star crossed lovers in their hearts’ desire, of love, life and land that is rightfully theirs. Before we can ask to seek for more talents, I think we need more supportive art lovers (look around the theatre) to open more opportunities.

 

Dato’ Faridah Merican

What makes Uda dan Dara 2015 a must watch Play of the year if you don’t know is that the executive producer & director is also the original cast for Dara back in 1972 & also Dara’s mum in 1984. Her respect for the late Usman Away & her passion for Uda dan Dara is the reason why art lover like me get to enjoy this forbidden love revisited today.

 

Mark Lim & Hana Nadira

I heard that Thursday was corporate & Friday was media screening. I was a bit upset with the out come on opening night for pubilc. Do you people still support art over here? Art starts with you! Tickets are available RM45-150 in Kuala Lumpur (4-11 Apr) & RM40-RM100 in Penang (21-25 Apr). Do check out this local production via FB page, FB page in MalayFB event, FB event in ChineseTicketPro today! You might want to check out the opening song to get you warm up. Don’t missed the mixed English Malay modern act with a number of awesome original in this dramatic play. Will it be a happy ending or a tragic drama? You got to watch it for yourself :p

Before VS After

Miss World Malaysia 2010 Nadia Heng our host of the day was awesome. Been hearing her name everywhere but it’s the first time I met her in person that I almost cannot recognize her. Luck was on my side when I got Cavin Wong, creative director of The Edge Studio to get my hair ready before I rush off to airport to catch a flight back home for a break after working non-stop for the past 7 months. Washed my hair earlier in the morning but instantly can see the results of different products. Thanks Don & Manoah Consulting for giving me the quick time to pamper myself before leaving KL.

 

Get Yours Today!

Managed to reach airport on time using Uber to KL Central &. I told my driver that I love the fruity smell on my hair & he told me my hair looks fluffy from the mirror when we’re waiting for the red light. I get to try out both Moist Shampoo & Moist Treatment too look good this Chinese New Year. Did I say Moist Diane Moist & Shine (damaged hair), Volume & Scalp (damaged scalp) & Extra Damage Repair (extreme damaged hair) in 500ml are available @ Watson for RM29.90 only? Time to say hello to silicone free hair care for a silky smooth treatment alike shampoo today ;)

Review: Shizens Lip Tattoo

Shizens Lip Tatoo RM168

You must be thinking wait a minute, this tube of lip gloss look a like cost me over RM150? Yupp, but what you’re about to see if beyond your believe. This Shizens best selling product has similar function as Lip Painter. From my understanding, Shizens offers beauty products with natural ingredients that gives premium skin care benefits to users.

 My sad Lips :(

I think I was born in the wrong era & country. I would be consider pretty if I was born as a Geisha in Japan during the 18th Century. But according to Lip Tattoo it has the ability to brings out the healthy rosy tone on the lips. As it’s not a lipstick you don’t have to worry about your lips colour fade after a meal or drink. Let’s try it out.

 

IMG_1231[1]

Instant Gloss

5 seconds after applying Lip Tattoo on my lips later my lips start to turn pinkie. But half an hour later my lips become very full as the photo below & turns reddish. It was a shock for me to find red stain on the tissue when I wipe it off as it was white when I applied on my lips.

 

IMG_1232[1]

Sexier Lips?

 What I like about this product:
> Instant Gloss
> No need to re-apply, last after a meal
> Quick Make-up, applicable on cheeks & eye lids
> Suitable for Stage Appearance (fuller redder lips)

What I don’t like about this product:
> Too red for casual dates unless I’m blonde
> Uncomfortable sensation when lips are starting to swell

So, do you prefer my Geisha’s tiny lip or Angelina’s full lips? I hear that Lip Tattoo also change colour according to individual’s pH & body temperature. Do check out Shizens‘ website for more info.

P/S: Wabbit is still coughing when competition is almost near :(
