Club Asahi Miami @ Soju Room, Penang!

Thursday, 27 June 2013

Japan’s No. 1 Beer Brand Around The World is bringing one of the hottest party centrals to Malaysia

Betcha didn't know Asahi means "morning sun" in Japanese. Whenever I hear the word "Asahi", all I could think of is BEER (also known as sister brand of beer giant Carlsberg) as well as beautiful girls dressed in silver outfits like this -

Asahi Brand Ambassadors

I'm glad to say that I was one of the few privileged ones to be invited for Club Asahi Miami's second instalment at Soju Room, on June 21, 2013. Headlining the second instalment of Club Asahi are Miami’s top DJs, Kryoman and DJ Hendrix. Representing our homeland Malaysia are Mr Nasty & GuruGuru: The infamous household names from Zouk Club KL, anchors the much hipper side of the club called Barsonic with their bi-monthly residency coined OMFG & CTRL.

So when I was invited to attend Asahi's event - Club Miami Asahi, I was thrilled! Not only will I be travelling to Penang to party, it will be an all-expense-paid trip together with a plus one! (Also, not to forget the free flow of Asahi beer all night long!) I initially wanted to go there alone, because I was single when I received the good news (about a month back). However after getting together recently with a very special guy, I decided to ask him to accompany me there for the trip. So guys, introducing my better half -

So yeah, aside from performances, the event also had a photo booth which allows us to take pics and email them to ourselves! Took few shots in between waiting time to get into the club -

Kimarie Academy Workshop

Monday, 17 June 2013

It was rare Saturday morning when I found myself waking up early to attend Kimarie's Blogger Workshop for personal hair and makeup. I mean usually my Friday nights are spent partying thus the lack of activities on Saturday mornings. However, I made the recent Saturday an exception, knowing that Kimarie is one of the leading hair salons in Malaysia. Thus it will definitely be an insightful workshop to improve our personal skills on the subject of beauty.

The workshop kickstarted at 11am, with a few exclusively selected bloggers at Kimarie Academy, Wisma Bukit Bintang. We were introduced to our two instructors of the day, one a hair expert, the other a makeup trainer -

Joanne Yap
Technical Director
  • 26 years experience in hairdressing 
  • Trained Malaysia Airline crews for 8 years (Kimarie Academy is one of the appointed groomers for Malaysia Airlines Cabin Crew)
  • 2008 Myskill competition winner
  • City and Guilds Level 4 (Licentiateship Award)
  • Certified Vocational Trainer of Malaysia (VTO)

Esther Liew
Makeup Educator
  • 7 years experience in makeup
  • Has done many magazine shoots including Her World, Style, 360 Celsius
  • And events such as Dani Maia Brazil bikini showcase, Corset Me, X -top Model Search 2012, commercial video shoot (Aircel Gaming TVC in India), MTV Shoot

Joanne was explaining to the stages of hair growth.

Here is Esther, with Jane Schwan as a makeup demo model.

Few tips we learnt during the workshop -

  1. Hair is made from blood.
  2. There are 3 stages of hair growth: Anagen, Catagen & Telogen
  3. We are supposed to wash hair before applying hair tonic
  4. For oily hair, use leave-in conditioner/serum
  5. There are 2 types of dandruff: dry (squarish flakes) & oily (round flakes, caused by sweat & sebum). Don't use dandruff shampoo if you have dry scalp.
    1. Balance out hairstyle according to your face shape: oval face = squarish hair / square face = roundish hair.

Kimarie Academy (founded in 1982) offers hairdressing and makeup courses for both professional and short courses.
