My first time wearing a tudung!


I was shooting beautifulnara.com at his home for Project Alpha sponsored by Adidas Action 3 (the deodorant, not the clothes! ;) which is a show about Malaysia's top bloggers and believe you me, he really is one of the TOP bloggers in the country if you want the low down on celebrity gossip in Malaysia. Oh, by the way, it's the guy on the right hehe. Everyone assumes it's a girl.


I got greeted by his nephew at the door. Soo cute! He must've wondered who all these strangers were. Including the crew and make up artists, there were more than 10 of us!


I found out that beautifulnara's traffic is astronomical! He can garner more visitors in a day on his site than some magazines over an entire month! (depending on the blog post, he can sometimes hit 100,000 unique visitors in a day!) Just insane! Now, one of the very few bloggers who can rival beautifulnara.com is this guy down here,
budiey.com


They are MAJOR rivals so we decided to film them pitted against each other in a CHALLENGE at Sunway Lagoon's Extreme Park hahaha. What an INTERESTING day shall we say? I had to actually separate them when they first got on to camera. quite a bit of drama ;)


It was a healthy competition and I can't tell you the result of the budiey.com versus beautifulnara.com challenge (we'll have to just catch the drama when it's out ;)


I absolutely can't wait for the first episode of Project Alpha!! (We are still editing the show right now coz we just finished filming all 49 episodes) Project Alpha will start airing on Sept 18th on HITZ.fm and nuffnang.com.my

There's a first time for everything. Now, I have worn a baju kurung before but not a tudung! And when I was interviewing beautifulnara at his house, I also interviewed his whole family and...


As it turns out, beautifulnara.com's sister,
Nafizah is ALSO a blogger and she gives women tips on how to style yourself with the tudung coz there are several ways to do it. She took me to her favourite shop, Rimba in Sunway Pyramid in this beautiful arabic inspired section called Marrakesh to get myself dressed up!


I felt transported into a different culture. The outfit automatically made me feel very feminine, lady-like and proper. I tried to stay still while she was fastening the head dress so it wouldn't slip.


I was going to remove my hair band but she said to leave it. Makes it easier so that all the hair is out of your face.


Almost there and then we were told there was a snake charmer dancing in the Sunway Marrakesh corridor (what????) It was drawing quite a crowd so we went n checked it out.

She was one sexy dancer. I would be too distracted dancing with a live snake wrapped round me!


Wow, she even sleeps with her snake, she was telling us! How scary!



Project Alpha which is about uncovering Malaysia's top bloggers was really quite an adventure to film coz we shot everything on location from their homes to Sunway Resort Hotel where Nicolekiss was staying coz the girl literally lives out of her suitcase. She's always on the go...


She even writes for The Star. I asked her why the name Nicolekiss? It's not that sort of kiss by the way. It comes from Hershey kisses, yup, she's a lover of chocolate! Don't know how she stays so slim! :)

She has these amazing videos from all over the world. She's been to so many countries and gets paid as a blogger to write about her travels. What a cool job!


I really liked her room too. It was an Arabic suite at
Sunway Resort Hotel. I asked her if she always travels like this "in style" and she said "I wish!" lol. She's gone backpacking, the works and has been on all modes of transport! Anything goes with this chic. We had a lot of fun on this shoot! ;)

Jojo,

Tried to email you a couple of months ago but you seemed to have "firewall ' yourself away from the public. The blog was inaccessible and needed some prior registration,I surmised. A security check? Is that so?

Tried to get to your blog a couple of months ago but was unable to do so. Apparently, there was some kind of security registration needed. Was that so? Anyway, glad to see you are well and going about helming the social scene. Looks fabulously Arabic in that tudong!
